Unicorn Western Book Excerpt:

From the bestselling authors of Yesterday’s Gone, The Inevitable, Invasion, and Fat Vampire comes Unicorn Western, a reinvention of both the western genre and unicorn lore. Cast out from the magical kingdom of The Realm and into the dying desert of the Sands beyond, Marshal Clint Gulliver and his unicorn Edward have finally found peace in the small and dusty town of Solace. For the first time since leaving The Realm, Clint has dared to be happy, getting hitched to his bride-to-be, Mai. But when the town faces a deadly approaching enemy, the gunslinger feels compelled to unholster his seven-shooters to face it… and the dark magic it brings with it. ★★★★★ "If Stephen King dropped acid and some E when he was writing the Dark Tower series it might have been Unicorn Western." -- Tots4Masses ★★★★★ "Totally insane story, but oddly makes sense. You'll fall in love with Edward, identify with Clint and wonder about Mai. Magic galore. Breezed right through this book and can't wait for the next one! More, more, more pleasem and thankoo!" -- Jkaustin02 ★★★★★ "Oh my goodness!!! I never would have thought a western about a unicorn riding cowboy would work but it does! This is a fun and addictive story. I can’t wait to buy the whole series now. I highly recommend this book." -- Jakki Hatchett ★★★★★ "This was great. Really reminiscent of old westerns, but with unicorns and magic. I loved it, especially when Clint is trying to round up a posse." -- C. Lightberry ★★★★★ "UNICORN WESTERN is a delightful treat for readers, no matter their preferred genre" -- Trula Unicorn Western is book one in the 9-book Unicorn Western Series. It's like Stephen King’s The Dark Tower, but with more magic, more fun, and more turkey pie. Read the entire completed series today!

The Mythic Chinese Unicorn Book Excerpt:

This is the first book in the English language to explore the origin and significance of the mythic Chinese unicorn and its influence on later unicorn myths. It proves, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that the Chinese unicorn was not the qilin, but a one-horned female goat-like beast called the zhi (pronounced jhuhr). It also examines the real animals upon which the myth was based. Its most significant finding, however, is that the unicorn zhi was the ultimate symbol of justice under the law in ancient China. Making judicious use of all available evidence, historical, epigraphical, archaeological, art historical and scientific, this book explains how the myth of the unicorn began in China and then gradually spread to other parts of Asia and Europe.

From the bestselling authors of the Invasion, Yesterday's Gone, Unicorn Western, and Fat Vampire comes The Ruby Room, book three in The Dream Engine Series, a thrilling young adult dystopian adventure set in a lush dark fantasy steampunk dream world. With both Fleet and Flock in turmoil and conditions at the Ministry of Manifestation coming undone, Eila, Cora, and their small band of allies find themselves on the run, seeking a mysterious object that has the power to unravel all of Alterra. Cracks in Parliament's carefully constructed lie are beginning to show at the seams, meanwhile, as Decorum attempts to fight the slow bleed of chaos: citizens losing their minds as Crumble's pacification fails, doorways opening to other worlds, leagues of spies trying to hide the truth. After failing to recover Eve's prize at the Convenience and finding Pavilion all but inaccessible, the troupe's options become limited. Bigger players have entered the game, and even those who knew Alterra's true path have found themselves empty-handed -- tricked by higher powers. Eila's only hope is to regain control of the missing engine core, but she must use another talisman to find it. And as Eila soon finds, there are plans within plans, and only one set of hands (hands closer to Eila than she's ever realized) able to pull all of the levers. ★★★★★ "MORE...WE WANT MORE!!! This should be another of your on-going series! This whole series proves just how diversified the authors are and how they can not just write but create anything!" -- Greg Lambert ★★★★★ "I love the Dream Engine Books. The 3rd book in the series so far, it's fast-paced, surprising and exciting, and we learn more about not just Alterra, but other places in Terra and their Engines. It's one of my favorite YA novels, and one of my favorite fantasy/steampunk universes." -- JeanDiFalco ★★★★★ "The boys did a great job reconnecting us to Alterra and all of its characters, then they turned their world completely upside down. We're immediately thrown into the deep end of the story as the pace quickly ramps up to frantic and unstoppable with too many twists and turns to count. I love how some of the characters have matured; Juliette is a complete badass! OMG!!!" -- Adam Bailey The Ruby Room, book three in The Dream Engine Series, ratchets the tension up to eleven, turning the careful world of Alterra and its foes beyond inside out.

Unicorns are unique not just for their startling singular horn but because people carried on believing in them long after dragons, griffins, manticores and a host of other fanciful creatures had been consigned to myth and heraldry. Suckling covers the ancient tales and rumours that began the superstition, the wide-ranging influence of this creature, the early confusion between the mythical unicorn and the rhinoceros, its adoption as a Christian symbol; its use in heraldry, and the value of its horn as powerful medicine.

The Natural History Of Unicorns Book Excerpt:

For centuries, unicorns have inspired, enchanted and eluded humanity. The beast appears in the Old Testament and there was a brisk trade in unicorn parts in medieval times, with travellers regularly reporting sightings into the modern era. But by the early twentieth century scientists had conceded that the unicorn never existed. It turns out they were a little hasty. Where did the unicorn come from, and how was it accepted as a part of the animal kingdom for so long? Chris Lavers argues that although the unicorn of our imagination isn't real, traces of its character can be found in existing species. In this lively and vivid exploration of the natural world, Lavers follows the beast's trail to the plateaus of India and into the jungles of Africa to unearth the flesh and blood ancestors of our iconic unicorn.
