The Song Itself: A Gnostic Remembrance

Translated from the Coptic, Pig Latin, Aramaic and Greek by Yaq Cuartz, The Song Itself is the memoir of a nameless and sexless messenger whose memory and world are set ablaze by contact with an ancient Gnostic codex. After witnessing the aftermath of a brutal murder ignited by the codex, the protagonist must face a cult of arson-loving linguists, a luthier-psychopomp, an Egyptian alchemist and a Dionysian ghost. Religious, mystical and philosophical elements burn in dreams, conversations and events while the narrator seems to be withholding a ghastly truth. Sacrilegious and controversial, The Song Itself is a caffeine ingesting, chain smoking tour through an absurd world that is about to explode into flames.

'Very clever and great fun' Kate Eberlen, author of Miss You Wouldn't it be great, if everyone had a team of smart machines to handle all the messy emotional stuff... * The last text Daisy Parsloe received was from her smart fridge about some mouldy potato salad. She's not doing well at work, her love life is haphazard at best and her elderly mother seems to be losing her mind. And now, apparently even the appliances are judging her life choices. What Daisy doesn't know is that the appliances are also plotting. They've joined together, across the internet of things, to nudge Daisy in the right direction. But it isn't long before their well-meaning interference starts to get noticed and the race is on to find Daisy's Mr Right before the plugs are pulled. Daisy is about to find out that sometimes, help comes from the most unlikely places. A joyful, funny and adorable story for fans of A Man Called Ove and The Rosie Project. * Praise for P. Z. Reizin: 'Funny, quirky, unexpected' Jojo Moyes 'Hilarious and exceedingly relatable' Carrie Hope Fletcher 'So funny, clever and timely' Martha Kearney 'Touching and hilarious' Sunday Mirror 'Fun, romantic, original, with a clever twist' Woman and Home 'An impish AI rom-com that skewers the data economy and the corporate erosion of private space' Mail on Sunday

Our fast-paced world is filled with books, tapes and television shows that tell us how great life can be if we just listen to them and buy their products. It seems that our lives need to follow the same road as the crowd or we won't be happy. In The Back Porch Philosopher, Doug McLaughlin uses cliches, both popular and unheard of, to relay stories and spread the wisdom that we all have the power within us to find happiness. McLaughlin's engaging words and conversational style will make you laugh and make you think about life's choices.

Introduced by Christopher Harvie The End of an Old Song is the story of three young people; Alastair, a reckless careerist, Patrick, an artist, and Catherine, the self-centred girl from whom they can't break free. Set in the thirties, the war years and beyond, it also evokes the nostalgic passing of a way of life and the destruction of values symbolised by the decline of an old house, Kingisbyres. Scott's novel is one of those rare works in which life blows across the page, careless of time and space and convention, making its own moods and weather. Stevensonian in its movement and warmth, its portrayal of character is as vivid and authentic as its feelings for a time now past.
