In this personal, irreverent book, Carl Walker represents the average stories of average people whose lives are routinely and often unnoticeably held together by the people who work in the NHS. These are the people who patch us up, sew us up, radiate, advise scan, plaster, console, repair, inject and support us, before delivering us back home to carry out our everyday affairs. A sharply observed collection of sometimes outrageous, often excruciating but always entertaining accounts of different interactions with one of Britain's greatest treasures.

AT THE BOTTOM OF THE LAKE In a nutshell… Coming to terms that there’s more to the mystery of the missing persons’ case than meets the eye, Johnny eagerly awaits more news on the shocking discovery beyond Woodfall, while patiently waiting for the return of his neighbour to shed some light on the elusive Stranger. Never one to sit idle, he explores Malley, not to look for answers, but his friends, who have made themselves scarce. Welcome to Malley, where nothing is what it seems. ON THE EDGE OF THE NIGHT About the series… For better or worse, The War of the World came to an abrupt end in 1944, with such unfathomable violence and absolute destruction, that it changed the world forever, yet life went on. It is 1979, and after nearly a decade of peace and prosperity, the course of history is about to undergo another drastic change into a realm of chaos and order. Known to only a select few, the fabric of reality was shattered, and only now, things are falling apart. With the clock ticking, it’s only a matter of time until the veil of secrecy is lifted, and the actual players of the game are revealed. For decades, and even longer, unbeknownst to anyone, the elusive ‘THEY’ have deliberately moved their pieces into position and patiently waited for the fog of uncertainty to fall, and that time has finally come.

This book explains why cognitive linguistics offers a plausible theoretical framework for a systematic and unified analysis of the syntax and semantics of particle verbs. It explores the meaning of the verb + particle syntax, the particle placement of transitive particle verbs, how particle placement is related to idiomaticity, and the relationship between idiomaticity and semantic extension. It also offers valuable linguistic implications for future studies on complex linguistic constructions using a cognitive linguistic approach, as well as insightful practical implications for the learning and teaching of English particle verbs.

The starting and ending points for all outreach have to be love. The most effective way to reach people for Jesus is through kindness outreach—showing God’s love in practical ways. This type of outreach is what Jesus modeled, is culturally relevant, and values people. The goal should be to invite people to take the next step from where they are. Friendship Community Church, led by Pastor Todd Stevens, has experienced tremendous growth through acts of kindness. The church’s most radical kindness project is Nashville Strip Church, founded by Erin Stevens. Erin’s life changed when God told her to “go feed the strippers.” With home-cooked meals and gift bags, Erin shows dancers that God loves them. How to Pick Up a Stripper and Other Acts of Kindness includes the story of a dancer who has come to know Christ, left the strip club industry through Erin’s ministry, and is now serving with Erin to reach other strippers. From feeding the homeless, to Easter egg hunts for special needs children, to ministering in a strip club, How to Pick Up a Stripper and Other Acts of Kindness provides exciting ideas for showing God’s love in practical ways. Features include: Stories from kindness outreach events, including Strip Church Ideas for showing God’s love in practical ways Inspiration to step out of your comfort zone to serve people

The Blueberry Patch is a family saga novel that tells the story of a mother and daughter battling mental illness in very different ways. Janet Robbins and her mother, Helen Kendricks, are both diagnosed with bipolar affective disorder. Janet tries to do everything she is told by her doctors and follow the rules, but still encounters obstacles in her battle to come to terms with her diagnosis. Helen is defiant, and stubbornly doesn't think she needs medication, which causes her to plummet to highs and lows so severe that her family worries for her safety. The Blueberry Patch will open eyes to the struggles bipolar affective patients face in today's society. The story also gives many bipolar affective patients hope, with the knowledge that it is possible to overcome this diagnosis and lead a normal life. About the Author First-time author Laura Lee Royale hails from the Black Hills of South Dakota, where she was a newspaper reporter. Royale also started a community newspaper in Colorado and worked as a freelance writer. "There hasn't been a readable book out on mental illness since One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, she says. "So many people are ashamed of being diagnosed as bipolar. I want people to know that this is a manageable diagnosis. The best way to educate the masses about mental illness is by telling a story that everyone can read and understand." She is writing a sequel.

Scottish medical missionary-explorer David Livingstone wandered off course in his search for the source of the Nile and died from blood loss in May 1873 in a remote corner of north-eastern Zambia. His heart was buried under a tree in Chief Chitambo's village and his mummified body was carried back to the coast by some of his loyal companions. His remains were returned by sea to Britain and he was given a hero's burial at Westminster Abbey on the 18th. April 1874 Chitambo Hospital was built in memory of Livingstone over a hundred years ago, by his nephew, Malcolm Moffat. Two of Livingstone's grand-children worked there and his youngest daughter, Anna made a pilgrimage to the spot in 1915. Generations of nurses and doctors followed in Livingstone's footsteps and gave of themselves to keep the hospital running. Livingstone's Hospital sets out to tell the story of a vibrant and living memorial to one of history's poorly-understood heroes.

H. Beam Piper is one of science fiction's most enigmatic writers. In 1946 Piper appeared seemingly from out of nowhere, already at the top of his form. He published a number of memorable short stories in the premier science fiction magazine of the time, Astounding Science Fiction, under legendary editor John W. Campbell. Piper quickly became friends with many of the top writers of the day, including Lester Del Rey, Fletcher Pratt, Robert Heinlein and L. Sprague de Camp. Piper also successfully made the turn from promising short story writer to major novelist, authoring Four-Day Planet, Cosmic Computer, Lord Kalvan of Otherwhen and Little Fuzzy, which was nominated for a Hugo award. Even those who counted Piper among their friends knew very little about the man or his life as a railroad yard bull in Altoona, Pennsylvania. This biography illuminates H. Beam Piper, both the writer and the man, and answers lingering questions about his death. Appendices include a number of Piper's personal papers, a complete bibliography of Piper's works, and an essay on Piper's Terro-Human Future History series.

In honor of what would have been Clarence Jordan's one hundredth birthday and the seventieth anniversary of Koinonia Farm, the first Clarence Jordan Symposium convened in historic Sumter County, Georgia, in 2012, gathering theologians, historians, actors, and activists in civil rights, housing, agriculture, and fair-trade businesses to celebrate a remarkable individual and his continuing influence. Clarence Jordan (1912-1969), a farmer and New Testament Greek scholar, was the author of the Cotton Patch versions of the New Testament and the founder of Koinonia Farm, a small but influential religious community in southwest Georgia. Roots in the Cotton Patch, Volume 1 contains Symposium presentations addressing Clarence's influence as a storyteller and contextual preacher and prophet, his pacifist witness in a violent and segregated South, and the contemporary meaning of his life's work in Christian community. Uniting these powerful essays is the obvious impact Jordan's life has had on so many. His life and work continue to inspire a new generation of activists, seminary students, and people in search of the meaning of Christian community.
