An outrageous sortie on a pre-war BSA and two obscure, obsolete Yorkshire-made, single-cylinder Panther motorbikes. Poorly funded, with little planning, the ride depends on good luck, blind loyalty and terminal optimism. The struggle is managed with a youthful naivety. This is a recollection of a youth well-spent. Love and adventure are in the air with every chapter a precarious adventure. "I was parched and scarcely able to breathe but I pushed and shoved and swore, screamed, yelled and cried and somehow I got Penelope up that bloody hill and struggled on until I could see the brick outpost over a sand dune. In the last 20 yards I bogged down again, and so leaving Penelope upright in the sand I staggered in, to the amazement of the soldiers. I beg for water"

"Sobremesa reads like a cross between magical realism and the food section of the New York Times. Delicioso!" —Beth Ostrosky-Stern, New York Times Bestselling Author If food is the universal language of love, sobremesa is the romance. Gather around the table with C-level career woman turned foodpreneur, Josephine Caminos Oría, as she cooks up a magical tale, told morsel by morsel, of some of her most memorable tableside chats—sobremesaa—that provided the first-generation Argentine-American the courage to leave the safe life she knew and start over from scratch. In her coming-of-age adventure, Josephine travels to her family's homeland of Argentina in search of belonging—to family, to country, to a love, and ultimately, to oneself. Steeped in the lure of Latin culture, she pieces together her mom and abuela's pasts, along with the nourishing dishes—delectably and spiritually—that formed their kitchen arsenal. But Josephine's travels from las pampas to the prairie aren't easy or conventional. She grapples with mystical encounters with the spirit world that lead her to discover a part of herself that, like sobremesa, had been lost in translation. Just as she's ready to give up on love all together, Josephine's own heart surprises her by surrendering to a forbidden, transcontinental tryst with the Argentine man of her dreams. To stay together, she must make a difficult choice: return to the safe life she knows in the States, or follow her heart and craft a completely different kind of future for herself—one she never saw coming. This otherworldly, multigenerational story of a daughter's love and familial culinary legacy serves up, in 13 courses, the timeless traditions that help Josephine navigate transformational love and loss. It's a reminder that that home really is anywhere the heart is. Sobremesa invites you to linger at the table, reveal your own hidden truths and savor the healing embrace of time-honored food and the wisdom it espouses.

Socrates said "To know thyself is the beginning of wisdom”. Now Patrick Hoeller asks in this life counselling manuscript "What exactly do we know when we know ourselves?”. Let it All Go is a book on life coaching combined with counselling, letting go of the past in order to live in the present etc. It is very much telling the reader that first of all everyone needs to know himself before he can understand others. And the first benefit of self knowledge is, according to Patrick Hoeller, happiness. With self knowledge comes the ability to choose the right things for us - from sandwiches to the right life partner. So a book which aims to raise awareness in readers that "to know others, one must first know oneself” will be a useful addition to the range of self-help books on the market. Sometimes it takes a wrong turn to get you to the right place. Life is not meant to be lived perfectly but is to be lived. What you are waiting for is not as important as what happens to you while you are waiting. Not everyone will see your dreams and visions, you have to know and believe for yourself. The stretching of your faith is immediate pain that results in ultimate gain. It is in the waiting that you become who you are meant to be. In the midst of your struggle to find out who you are, there are infinite possibilities for beauty, hope, wonder and love. You have to trust in what feels true even if that truth requires you to ignore what you know. Things always make sense in hindsight. When you look back on your life, you can see that you went through the exact challenges that were necessary to allow for growth in the precise way that you most needed. All your personal struggles led you exactly where you really wanted to go but didn't know at that time. How difficult was it for you to let go?

The airship Everness makes a Heisenberg Jump to an alternate Earth unlike any her crew has ever seen. Everett, Sen, and the crew find themselves above a plain that goes on forever in every direction without any horizon. They’ve arrived on an Alderson Disc, an astronomical megastructure of incredibly strong material reaching from the orbit of Mercury to the orbit of Jupiter. Who could have built such a thing? The Jiju, the dominant species on a plane where the dinosaurs didn't die out. They evolved, diversified, and have a twenty-five million year technology head-start on humanity. If they ever get off their plane, and into the worlds of the Plenitude... Everness has jumped right into the midst of a faction fight between rival nations, but can anyone be safe among the warring Jiju, and what is the price of their help? The crew of the Everness is divided in a very alien world, a world fast approaching the point of apocalypse. And back in the Plenitude of Known Worlds, Charlotte Villiers gathers allies and works her way deep into the corridors of power. Praise for Empress of the Sun “YA or not, the Everness series may be the most enjoyable ongoing series that SF currently has to offer.” —Locus “The marvelous Everness series takes readers to a world with highly evolved dinosaurs in this third voyage through parallel universes... McDonald lets his imagination run rampant without abandoning credibility, tackling real scientific concepts such as confirmation bias, a feature lacking in far too much science fiction... Endlessly fascinating and fun.” —Kirkus (Starred Review) “With strong characters covering all ages and genders, fine action sequences, and enough cool SF concepts that could fill a volume twice its size, EMPRESS OF THE SUN is an excellent entry in one of my favorite SF series.” —SF Signal
