Watch out! Here comes another mammoth book to thrill you and chill you and to frighten you to within an inch of your life! It comes bumping out of the night ... from John Robert Colombo, the master of the macabre! This new compendium delivers excitement and delight to everyone who finds the unknown and the inexplicable fascinating, baffling, and frightening. The Big Book of Canadian Hauntings offers readers true, first-person accounts of the appearances (and the disappearances!) of ghosts and spirits as well as considerations and discussions of their effects on observers. Some told-as-true tales are reprinted from newspapers and periodicals of the past, but the majority of the stories, which come from every region in Canada, are based on eyewitness reports of the present that are appearing here for the first time and are based on the compiler’s ongoing research. So whether you believe in ghosts, spirits, spooks, spectres, or poltergeists, or not, after reading these narratives contributed by Canadians from all walks of life, you definitely won’t be indifferent to them.

Jim Haynes, Australia's favourite tale teller, loves the sport of kings as much as he loves Aussie yarns and bush verse. From country picnic tracks to the thoroughbred racecourses of Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne, from Archer to Black Caviar, from the mysterious punter Louis the Possum to the great trainer Bart Cummings, he brings these two great loves together in the biggest book of Australian racing stories ever. In these stories, full of the humour and romance of the track, Jim reminds us of the great champions, the tragedies, and the unique characters (equine and human) of racing. Here are stories of famous races and jockeys, touts and urgers, nose-to-nose battles and a rort or two, as well as country race meeting where anything can happen. This rich collection captures the heart and soul of the turf and reminds us exactly why a day at the races and having a punt are such an important part of the Australian spirit. Jim Haynes lives ten minutes' walk from Randwick Racecourse and his favourite television channel is Thoroughbred Central.

Ambitious and wide-ranging, this sweeping history of one of the world’s most recognized landmarks explores every aspect of Sydney Harbor through studies of its natural, human, and cultural history. Revealing why Sydney Harbor has been a defining element for the people who have lived around it since the time of the harbor clans, this volume examines the icon as a means of communication; a barrier; a resource to be exploited; and a place of beauty, spirit, and meaning. By chronicling the story of the waterway from the time of the first aboriginal communities and detailing contemporary debates about the future of the working harbor, this comprehensive account outlines the important interactions between the glittering harbor and the people who inhabited and shaped it.

Internet and email have changed the way today's designers must view traditional letterheads, which, to the surprise of some industry experts, have become more important than ever. As more and more business is being done electronically, an even greater emphasis must be placed on letterhead, business cards, and folder design to ensure that they are in tune with the look and feel of a company's website. This can get tricky, as creating a design that looks good in print (300 dpi) as well as on the web (72 dpi) is not always the easiest task to accomplish. But in Clio award-winning designer David E. Carter's comprehensive resource, readers will discover how to create stunning designs and letterheads that work well on both the printed and the digital page. The Big Book of Designs for Letterheads and Web Sites displays literally hundreds of examples that help designers recognize the parameters of print and web letterhead design, where they work together seamlessly, and where some creative integration must be done. This valuable resource makes it clear that the web revolution has not rendered print communications obsolete but has, in effect, made the design and letterhead on print communications even more important when conveying a company's message and keeping it consistent. - The author has a Clio and seven Emmy Awards to his credit - Contains hundreds of working, real-world examples
