In April 1945, Himmler's SS robbed Germany’s National Depository, the Reichsbank. As well as the tons of gold bullion, millions in currency, jewels and other valuables, the Nazis already had... More > billions of dollars’ worth of art, stolen from doomed Jewish families, hidden away in the mountains of Bavaria and Austria. 70 years later, Kurt Kohler,art hunter and researcher, travels the world looking for works to retrieve and return to their owners’ descendants. But when an old farmer tries to sell a batch of ancient gold coins, Kohler is called in and the hidden history of one of the most feared organisations of the 20th century is revealed. Kohler's investigations raise a question: what if Reichsführer-SS, Heinrich Himmler, who supposedly committed suicide with a cyanide capsule at Luneberg, Germany in May 1945 was not Himmler at all, but his terrified double? The official Himmler file at the UK’s National Archives is embargoed until 2045. But Kurt Kohler unearths the truth … and much more besides.< Less

eBook (PDF): $7.82
MacDonald Anderson is an Oscar-nominated screenwriter. Despite an ostensibly happy marriage, his secret, hard-drinking, adulterous character is about to be revealed. His wife Helen is a devout... More > Buddhist in the face of Mac’s secular, world-weary cynicism, and the near-celibacy of his marriage leaves him out on a limb. Yet Helen dies in a car crash.

The arrival of two passengers en route, the beautiful French-Canadian oceanographer, Gabrielle Agnes, and the man-hungry novelist Oriel Lynton, presents Mac with the challenge of honouring Helen's memory and supressing his basic instincts. Yet what lies at the end of this odd voyage is a destination which even Mac's wild, cinematic imagination could never conjure up.< Less

Endurance By Roy Bainton
Paperback: $6.86
Prints in 3-5 business days
Endurance is an intimate collection of poems inspired by all the people an aging writer regards as having formed his outlook on life, usually for the better or, politically, often for worse. These... More > observations are occasionally tempered by other contemplations upon old age. This reflective assembly veers violently between affection and anger, yet is hopefully balanced by the heartfelt acknowledgment of the selfless dedication of parents, the love - and loss - of our children, the devotion of friends, and the frustrations of being an irascible septuagenarian in the 21st century.< Less

Over The Hill By Roy Bainton
Paperback: $9.82
Prints in 3-5 business days
The elderly, like the poor, are always with us, and there's more of us each year. The world we grew up in has long gone, and with all the progress comes frustration and exasperation. There seems to... More > be a move to demonize old folk; it's a kind of odd envy for the fact that we don't seem to have to face the challenges younger people have to face in a consumer society which is ruled by greed and bereft of old fashioned morality. Yet getting old isn't the walk in the park most people think. These few verses are written by a man facing his 70th birthday. 'Wrinklies' often get hold of the wrong end of the stick, and some of us admit it. Here, then, in 'Over The Hill' are all the misinterpreted 'facts' of life as we see it, blended with longing, nostalgia and anger. This is also a reminder to any younger reader that they, too, will one day feel the same.< Less
Just One More Jerusalem By Roy Bainton
Paperback: $8.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
Poetry through the Tradesman’s Entrance. Just One More Jerusalem is Roy Bainton’s fourth venture into the world of poetry. Usually he’s more at home with non-fiction and history, or... More > the music industry. However, as a political animal he finds much to rail against in 21st century Britain, and often sees verse as the most effective way of expressing this. But between the shafts of anger there’s still room for introspection, reminiscence and even a touch of humour. Bainton has never claimed to be what he calls ‘a bona fide poet’. He’s been designated by those in the literary world who’ve seen and appreciated his work as little more than ‘a jobbing writer’ and as such, he considers his poetry output as simply having ‘access by the tradesman’s entrance’. So forget the front door, go around the back and here you’ll find a belligerent old knife-grinder with an uncompromising muse on his shoulder.< Less
