Description : Working as a spirit talker is as dangerous as it is underpaid and that is just the start of Jack Worthington s problems in the urban fantasy, Old Haunts. Jack is behind on the rent, terminally single, and is greeted every morning by the ghost of an eighty-year-old woman with a bad memory. But things are about to get worse. In saving the life of a client, Jack is forced to break one of the fundamental laws of existence, a crime that carries with it the punishment of death. Knowing that his days or hours are numbered, he races to forestall his inevitable death sentence, but in his travels unwittingly stumbles upon a potential catastrophe in the making. Now he has to figure out why the ghosts of London City are sowing fear and paranoia into the minds of police and ordinary citizens, and what it all has to do with the anniversary of the infamous citywide riots that occurred one year ago to the day. His search eventually leads him to a haven for the city s underworld denizens, where he must face a vampire with whom he shares a terrible link to the past, all while trying to stay alive just long enough to avert the apocalypse. Some days saving the world kinda sucks."
Description : Paperback re-print of Earthstars The Visionary Landscape. London's Sacred sites are not scattered about the capital at random.Many form a recognisable pattern of sacred geometry, a vast temple groundplan identical to the design used to lay out Stonehenge's megaliths over 3,500 years ago. Astonishingly, it also relates to the measures and proportions of the New Jerusalem, The City of Revelation. If the conclusions drawn by the author are correct, this pattern is a circuit diagram of the forces of creation and a new evolutionary impulse is coming through our sacred sites, a transformatory influence which will change the way we perceive the world

Description : David Kynaston's ground-breaking history of the City of London, published in four volumes between 1994 and 2001, is a modern classic. Skilfully edited into a single volume by David Milner, it tells a story as dramatic as any novel, while explaining the mysteries of the financial world in a way that we can all understand. This is a story of booms, busts and bankruptcies, dress codes, eating habits, pay, humour, changing architecture and the unique culture of the Square Mile which brings us up to the modern age.
