For the first time, the second set of six “Ghosts, Inc. Ghostly Shorts,” which are short stories meant to enhance the GI novels, are available in a single, comprehensive collection for your reading enjoyment. Designed to expand the rich world of “Ghosts, Inc.,” these short stories can be read and enjoyed independently of the novels. This collection of short stories takes place in the time between the second novel, "Heart of Shadows " and the third "Spellbound," and tell stories that, while not long enough for their own full-length novel, are every bit as intriguing and romantic, while delving in to the heart of the paranormal world. Get to know Victoria Morgan, otherwise known as “The Diamond Girl," and Colin Somersby, the Duke of Avelion, who also just happens to be the man Tori has loved all of her life in “Diamond Girl.” Can Tori rid Colin's Boston home of the ghost that has been haunting it for years and secure the mystical box she's been sent to bargain for, all while finally allowing herself to admit that there's no other man for her except Colin? Meet murdered Gilded Age heir Benjamin Westmore in “You Don't Know Me,” as he nurses fellow ghost Bridget Austin back to health - relatively speaking, of course, since she is dead. While living together at Windswept, his family's Newport, Rhode Island, mansion, can Benjamin help Bridget discover her place in their shared ghostly world before she crosses over to the "other side" forever? In “Where My Heart Will Take Me,” meet Anastasia, a one-time European princess now trapped in a hideous monster's body. Can GI investigator Noah Callahan see past her beastly form to the beauty within and find a way to free her from the curse that has haunted her for centuries? Brave the world of Ryan Frost, a Dark Reaper in search of injured souls in “Cold As Ice” as he attempts to rescue Russian immigrant Tatiana Belkov from the clutches of a madman intent on using Ana's talents for his own personal gain. Can Ryan save Ana before she succumbs to the madness or is the woman Ryan is destined to love already so lost inside of her own mind that there's no bringing her back? Feel the pull of love across time in “Lovers In A Dangerous Time,” as executed American Revolutionary War spy, Ethan Cole, rides to the rescue of Philadelphia historical site docent Natalie Baldwin. Can Ethan find a way back from beyond the grave with the help of the ever-expanding GI staff, or are he and Natalie doomed to be lovers out of time forever? Finally, join Cryptozoologist Abby Delinski and New Avalon police officer Matthew Duquesne as they search an abandoned steel mill in western Pennsylvania for the infamous mothmen, and maybe find love as well, in “Promises In The Dark.”
Robert Graves, classicist, poet and unorthodox critic, retells the Greek legends of gods and heroes for a modern audience. He demonstrates with a dazzling display of relevant knowledge that Greek mythology is ‘no more mysterious in content than are modern election cartoons’. All the scattered elements of each myth are assembled into a harmonious narrative, and many variants are recorded which may help to determine its ritual or historical meaning. Full indexes and references to the classical sources make the book as valuable to the scholar as the general reader. And a full commentary on each myth interprets the classical version in the light of contemporary archaeological and anthropological knowledge.

The current conception of the absolute chronology of the Italian Copper Age to the end of the Early Iron Age is set out in this new title from the British Museum. Some 850 objects have been arranged chronologically from the Copper Age, through the Bronze Age, to the Early Iron Age. Within these headings, the objects are organised typologically e.g. axes, swords etc. A major result of this study has been the reassembly of several groups of bronzes probably originally from hoards. Each entry includes a description, bibliography and comparanda, and line drawing or photograph.
