In the mid-1980s, in Edinburgh, Ian Rankin was hatching a plot for a ‘crime thriller’ from his student digs. Knots & Crosses – like its frayed protagonist John Rebus – was... More > rough around the edges but marked a promising debut. More than thirty years later, Rankin and Rebus have a global following. The series has been both critically acclaimed and commercially popular. Detective John Rebus is anything but conventional. The same can be said of Ian Rankin’s innovative texts which take crime fiction far beyond formulaic genre, producing radical, disruptive, borderline texts. In the first ever full-length study of all twenty-two Rebus novels, Rodney Marshall argues that Rankin’s fiction continues to break new ground, blurring the boundaries between traditional detective novel and modern literature. October 2018 sixth edition: includes an exclusive eighteen page interview with Ian Rankin and a chapter on In a House of Lies, Rankin's new Rebus novel.< Less

THE EYE OF MY MIND is a collection of 33 poems, chiefly in free verse, and some related prose, inspired by the author’s self-assigned odyssey through the fascinating enigma that is Russia,... More > during and since the reigns of the Tsars: her violent revolutionary history counter-balanced by her vital aesthetic legacy in literature and art.

One contemporary American poet’s limited but passionate enthrallment with an ancient foreign land and her often troubled but resilient peoples, whose faithful Russian soul she, provincial and untraveled though she is to the art centers of the world, identifies with, strives to pay homage to, and so admires.< Less
On Some Disputed Points in English Grammar By Otto Jespersen
Paperback: $12.99

This booklet forms part of a classic exchange between Otto Jespersen, Professor of English at Copenhagen University, and H. W. Fowler, author of “The King's English” and “A... More > Dictionary of Modern English Usage”. Jespersen here defends a number of grammatical constructions criticised in Fowler’s usage guides as solecisms. For example: (1) That long nose of his (“A friend of mine”, Fowler had argued, “i.e. among my friends, but surely not that nose of his, i.e. among his noses”); and (2) I insist on them being here (should be possessive “their”, according to Fowler). Jespersen argues that, far from being “vulgarisms” or “repulsive to a writer who likes clean sentences”, as Fowler’s Dictionary asserts, these idioms have occurred for centuries in good literature, and closer scrutiny shows them to be grammatically sound. The discussion is quite technical in parts, but anyone interested in the finer points of English usage—or in Fowler’s interactions with contemporary linguists—should find the effort worth while.< Less

More > illustrations. Commissioned by the Boston Post to venture into the woodlands, Joseph Knowles was far from your typical survivalist. Middle-aged and quite portly, he was a newspaperman rapidly going to seed. However, a will to escape what he termed the 'sham side of modern life' led him to undertake a quest to live off the land for some two months, his quest constantly reported on by his own paper. In terms of writing, Knowles realist reflections upon his time in the woods represent a clear departure from the vaunting of the natural world so popular in American literature. Rather than admire nature's beauty, he combines his own thoughts on life with descriptions of the physical and mental effects of living in the great outdoors, while including elements of popular adventure stories such as Tarzan.< Less
