Joss Whedon Amy Pascale
From the cult favourite Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which netted four million viewers per episode, to the summer blockbuster The Avengers, which amassed a box office of $1.5 billion, Joss Whedon has made a name for himself in Hollywood for his penchant for telling meaningful, personal tales about love, death, and redemption even against the most dramatic and larger-than-life backdrops. This biography follows his development from a creative child and teenager who spent years away from his family at an elite English public school, through his early successes which often turned into frustrating heartbreak in both television (Roseanne) and film (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) to his breakout turn as the creator, writer, and director of the Buffy television series.

Mightily Oats has not picked a good time to be priest. He thought he'd come to Lancre for a simple ceremony. Now he's caught up in a war between vampires and witches. Mightily Oats knows he has a prayer, but he wishes he had an axe.
The carpet people Terry Pratchett
The Carpet is home to different tribes: there's Fray, who sweeps a trail of destruction, and two Munrung brothers, who set out on an adventure when their village is flattened. The story will come to a terrible end if someone doesn't do something about it.
The dark side of the sun Terry Pratchett
Dom Salabos has a lot of advantages. As heir to a huge fortune he has an excellent robot servant (with Man-Friday sub-circuitry), a planet (the First Syrian Bank) as a godfather and a security chief who even runs checks on himself; and on Dom's home world even death is not always fatal. Things just couldn't be better. Why then, in an age when prediction is a science, is his future in doubt?
Diggers Terry Pratchett
A group of small creatures called nomes, whose families have lived for generations hidden in a department store, are forced to flee to a country quarry, where they struggle against harsh weather, destructive humans, and dissension among themselves.
The folklore of Discworld Terry Pratchett & Jacqueline Simpson
Legends, myths, fairytales: our world is made up of the stories we told ourselves about where we came from and how we got there. It is the same on Discworld, except that beings which on Earth are creatures of the imagination - like vampires, trolls, witches and, possibly, gods - are real, alive and in some cases kicking on the Disc.
Going postal Terry Pratchett
Moist von Lipwig is a con artist and a fraud and a man faced with a life choice: be hanged, or put Ankh-Morpork's ailing postal service back on its feet. Is there a shot at redemption waiting in the mad world of the mail for a man who's prepared to push the envelope?
A hat full of sky Terry Pratchett
A real witch never casually steps out of her body, leaving it empty. Eleven-year-old Tiffany does. And there's something just waiting for a handy body to take over. Something ancient and horrible, which can't die …
I shall wear midnight Terry Pratchett
For Tiffany Achiny being a good witch mostly means tending to the locals’ minor aches, pains, and kerfuffles, but to become a great witch, she’ll have to contend with the malevolent ghost of an ancient witch-burner. Yet even that might not be as terrifying as trying to keep the peace between the humans and the wee Nac Mac Feegles and, shudder, getting wrapped up in the wedding of her childhood friend, who is suddenly a very myopic baron.
Jingo Terry Pratchett
'Neighbours…hah. People'd live for ages side by side, nodding at one another amicably on their way to work, and then some trivial thing would happen and someone would be having a garden fork removed from their ear.' Throughout history, there's always been a perfectly good reason to start a war. Never more so if it is over a 'strategic' piece of old rock in the middle of nowhere. It is after all every citizen's right to bear arms to defend what they consider to be their own. Even if it isn't.
The Johnny Maxwell trilogy Terry Pratchett

The light fantastic Terry Pratchett
'What shall we do?' said Twoflower. 'Panic?' said Rincewind hopefully. He always held that panic was the best means of survival. As it moves towards a seemingly inevitable collision with a malevolent red star, the Discworld could do with a hero. What it doesn't need is a singularly inept and cowardly wizard, still recovering from the trauma of falling off the edge of the world, or a well-meaning tourist and his luggage which has a mind (and legs) of its own. Which is a shame, because that's all there is.
Night watch Terry Pratchett
Commander Sam Vimes of the Ankh-Morpork City Watch had it all. But now he's back in his own rough, tough past without even the clothes he was standing up in when the lightning struck.
Only you can save mankind Terry Pratchett
When the aliens on Johnny's computer game want to surrender rather than be blown up, Johnny has to learn to wage all-out peace and save them from destruction.
Sourcery Terry Pratchett
All this books and stuff, that isn't what it should all be about. What we need is real wizardry. There was an eighth son of an eighth son. He was, quite naturally, a wizard. And there it should have ended. However (for reasons we'd better not go into), he had seven sons. And then he had an eighth son …a wizard squared …a source of magic …a Sourcerer. Unseen University has finally got what it wished for: the most powerful wizard on the disc. Which, unfortunately, could mean that the death of all wizardry is at hand. And that the world is going to end, depending on whom you listen to. Unless of course one inept wizard can take the University's most precious artefact, the very embodiment of magic itself, and deliver it halfway across the disc to safety.
Strata Terry Pratchett
THE COMPANY BUILDS PLANETS. Kin Arad is a high-ranking official of the Company. After twenty-one decades of living, and with the help of memory surgery, she is at the top of her profession. Discovering two of her employees have placed a fossilized plesiosaur in the wrong stratum, not to mention the fact it is holding a placard which reads, 'End Nuclear Testing Now', doesn't dismay the woman who built a mountain range in the shape of her initials during her own high-spirited youth. But then came discovery of something which did intrigue Kin Arad. A flat earth was something new…
Thud! Terry Pratchett
Koom Valley - that was where the trolls ambushed the dwarfs, or the dwarfs ambushed the trolls. It was far away. It was a long time ago. But if he doesn't solve the murder of just one dwarf, Commander Sam Vimes of Ankh-Morpork City Watch is going to see it fought again, right outside his office.
Unseen academicals Terry Pratchett
Football has come to the ancient city of Ankh-Morpork - not the old fashioned, grubby pushing and shoving, but the new, fast football with pointy hats for goalposts and balls that go going when you drop them. And now, the wizards of Unseen University must win a football match, without using magic, so they're in the mood for trying everything else.

Sally and Nick are having shoe trouble. Sally can't stand up in her mom's shoes, and her dad's are too big for Nick. Not a problem, says the Cat. Feet come in all shapes and sizes, and to demonstrate, he takes them on a trip in the Thinga-ma-jigger to visit some friends: a duck with flat, wide feet good for swimming; a lemur with long, grasping toes good for climbing; and a gecko with tiny hairs on his feet that keep him from slipping.

Everything is wonderful : memories of a collective farm in Estonia Sigrid Rausing
In 1993-94 Sigrid Rausing completed her anthropological fieldwork on the peninsula of Noarootsi, a former Soviet border protection zone in Estonia. Rausing's conversations with the local people touched on many subjects: the economic privations of post-Soviet existence, the bewildering influx of western products, and the Swedish background of many of them. She lived and worked amongst the villagers, witnessing their transition from repression to freedom, and from Soviet neglect to post-Soviet austerity.
