Arrow (01 May, 2008)

These marvellous stories introduce us to Jeeves, whose first ever duty is to cure Bertie's raging hangover ("If you would drink this, Sir... it is a little preparation of my own invention. It is the Worcester Sauce that gives it its colour. The raw egg makes it nutritious. The red pepper gives it its bite. Gentlemen have told me they have found it extremely invigorating after a late evening"). And from that ...

Pyramids: (Discworld Novel 7) (Discworld Novels) (by Terry Pratchett)

Corgi (01 Sep, 2004)

Look after the dead', said the priests, 'and the dead will look after you.' Wise words in all probability, but a tall order when you have just become the pharaoh of a small and penniless country whose largesse - and indeed treasury - is unlikely to stretch to the building of a monumental pyramid to honour your dead father. And particularly when your only visible means of support is a recently acquired quali ...

The Eyre Affair (Thursday Next) (by Jasper Fforde)

Hodder Paperbacks (19 Jul, 2001)

'The Eyre Affair' is unlike any novel I have encountered before, and it deserves to be read, and loved by a great number of people. Imagine if Lewis Carroll had decided to write a detective story, which became a love story, which grew into a thriller, which ended up as an astonishing, highly entertaining page-turner that confounds expectations, and you have some idea of the scope of this novel. Jasper ...
