How often do we hear people say that you don't find characters today the way you used to. Well, Chas from Tas proves that they still exist! He is not a world-renowned racing skipper, or millionaire who can afford to hire the best crews available, he is one of the unsung heroes of yachting without whom the boats could not safely put to sea, who sailed with the best in many of the big races. He moved around from owner and skipper, from boat to boat, playing his part and watching and picking up the incidents that are an inevitable part of our sport and making friends. Chas is not just an interesting personality, he is a fount of useful knowledge picked up over the years from his experiences at sea over most of the world's oceans. Apart from being a great companion to share a few beers with when the opportunity of finding ourselves in the same place at the same time occurs, he is a most amusing storyteller, using incidents from his own experiences and telling them in a way that always brings a grin to one's face. For those who want to know what goes on behind the scenes, this is the sort of book that shows you how it really is, in life as in sailing. The fun and dramas that don't make the newspapers, which bring so much enjoyment to those of us who share our sport are all a part of the stories that miss the headlines - in many cases, thank goodness! It is also about friends made over the years, and Chas has many scattered all around the globe.

As the creator of Sherlock Holmes, 'the world's most famous man who never was', Arthur Conan Doyle remains one of our favourite writers; his work is read with affection - and sometimes obsession - the world over. Writer, doctor, cricketer, public figure and family man, his life was no less fascinating than his fiction. Conan Doyle grew up in relative poverty in Edinburgh, with the mental illness of his artistically gifted but alcoholic father casting a shadow over his early life. He struggled both as a young doctor and in his early attempts to sell short stories, having only limited success until his Sherlock Holmes stories became a publishing phenomenon and propelled him to worldwide fame. Whilst he enjoyed the celebrity Holmes brought him, he also felt that the stories kept him from more serious work. Beyond his writing, Conan Doyle led a full life, participating in the Boer War, falling in love with another woman while his wife was dying of tuberculosis, campaigning against injustice, and converting to Spiritualism, a move that would ultimately damage his reputation. During his lifetime Conan Doyle wrote more than 1,500 letters to members of his family, most notably his mother, revealing his innermost thoughts, fears and hopes: Russell Miller is the first biographer to have been granted unlimited access to Conan Doyle's private correspondence. The Adventures of Arthur Conan Doyle also makes use of the writer's personal papers, unseen for many years, and is the first book to draw fully on the Richard Lancelyn Green archive, the world's most comprehensive collection of Conan Doyle material. Told with panache, The Adventures of Arthur Conan Doyle is an unprecedentedly full portrait of an enduringly popular figure and an outstanding literary biograhy.

I am coming from behind me and I am going ahead' A dog can lead you into the corners of some stories better than any human can. This is a story like that. In the vast Tibetan plateau, where beauty and cruelty fall as day and night, Deki, a Tibetan mastiff, is born with a moon on her black chest. This is the tale of the dog and her friends, Tashi, Karma, and Changku the wolf. Of how she meets a runaway boy, and of their journey guarding a precious statue, with a vicious bandit at their heels, towards the celestial city of Shambhala. But do they find it? Deki's story moves with clouds, wild winds and the seasons. It carries the scent of blooming poppies and scurrying pikas, and of friends who leave without saying goodbye. Angry yaks and innocent sheep, fearsome bears and majestic snow leopards walk in and out of its words into caves where wise hermits teach the whys and hows of what everyone in the world wants to know. Finally, Deki faces the choice before every living creature: a life of comfort within someone else's walls, or freedom - fragile and dangerous, but her own to risk. Follow Deki into an adventure without end.
