Novelist, poet, manager of farm property, convert to Roman Catholicism, Jacobite in exile in France, and woman unmarried by choice, Jane Barker (1652-1732) wrote on a remarkable variety of subjects and displayed an equally remarkable variety of genres. Her multifaceted work is important in understanding the woman artist, the shifting literary marketplace, and the response of women to a society torn apart by endless wars, religious intolerance, and a legal and economic system that consistently disadvantaged them. Love Intrigues (1713), A Patch-Work Screen for the Ladies (1723) and The Lining of the Patch-Work Screen (1726), the three novels that comprise The Galesia Trilogy, attest to her talents. In all three works, Galesia is Barker's semi- autobiographical narrator and heroine, whose voice becomes like that of a friend to the reader. The first work, an anti-romance celebrated for its psychological realism, captures the confusion and ambivalence of the young Galesia as she is courted by her rakish cousin. The second and third works include a dynamic range of pieces: popular tales of seduced nuns and lust for the high life in London, and more personal poems about Galesia's choice of the artistic life and her practice of the healing arts. Barker brilliantly structures the narratives of the second and third novels as an embroidered patchwork screen, worked harmoniously by a community of women, to which Galesia stitches her artistic productions. This literary conceit, Barker asserts, equals anything developed by her male contemporaries in conveying the truths of human experience. Following the Trilogy, this edition includes several Barker poems, never before published, which prove particularly powerful in capturing life in exile after James II was deposed from the English throne by William of Orange in 1688. This latest addition to the Women Writers in English series will have strong appeal for scholars working in the history of the novel and the literary marketplace, Restoration and eighteenth-century literature, women's history, and the relation of women's textile arts to imaginative literature.

She is a successful undertaker, a doting mother, and the loving wife of a decorated police officer. Then in one devastating moment, a hit-and-run changes everything. As Blum’s grief over the death of her husband, Mark, overwhelms her, only her two little girls can drag her back to the land of the living.

Vivid, tense, and written with breakneck narration, this novel introduces Bernhard Aichner as a rising star in crime fiction.

Nebula and Hugo award-winning author David Brin continues his bestselling Uplift series in this second novel of a bold new trilogy. Imaginative, inventive, and filled with Brin's trademark mix of adventure, passion, and wit, Infinity's Shore carries us further than ever before into the heart of the most beloved and extraordinary science fiction sagas ever written. For the fugitive settlers of Jijo, it is truly the beginning of the end. As starships fill the skies, the threat of genocide hangs over the planet that once peacefully sheltered six bands of sapient beings. Now the human settlers of Jijo and their alien neighbors must make heroic--and terrifying--choices. A scientist must rally believers for a cause he never shared. And four youngsters find that what started as a simple adventure--imitating exploits in Earthling books by Verne and Twain--leads them to the dark abyss of mystery. Meanwhile, the Streaker, with her fugitive dolphin crew, arrives at last on Jijo in a desperate search for refuge. Yet what the crew finds instead is a secret hidden since the galaxies first spawned intelligence--a secret that could mean salvation for the planet and its inhabitants...or their ultimate annihilation.
