Summer On Earth
The night that eleven-year-old Grady Johnson looked out his window and wished upon a shooting star, his life changed forever. Grady, his Ma, and younger sister Luanne are having a hard summer. Dad has died and the family isn't the same. Though Ma is trying her best, Grady knows they don't have enough money to get by. The shooting star he saw was a space craft plunging to Earth, and landing at the back of their farm. Extraterrestrial engineer Ralwil Turth has one goal, to fix his power drive and go back home. But things don't go as planned. Stuck in human form, he gets to know Grady and his family as he works on their farm. He starts to learn about what it means to be human, and the exotic charms of this planet like the taste of potatoes, and how amazing bugs are. As Ralwil grows to care for Grady and his family, he comes up with a plan to help them, sure it will solve all their problems. But when trouble comes, the family's survival and Ralwil's very life are on the line. Can Grady find the courage to help his family and save his friend?

Self-Sustaining Garden
This book explores the theme that the plants themselves can do much of the hard work gardeners believe is an essential part of gardening. The Self-Sustaining Garden advocates using plants as partners in self-sustaining communities to create low maintenance gardens rather than being a slave to spades and hoes. In a series of compelling case studies, Peter Thompson shows how to transform a conventional garden into a self-sustaining garden. Updated from the original edition (published in 1997), The Self-Sustaining Garden brings together an explanation of the universal principles of matrix planting with specific applications and informative chapters on soil health and biological controls, and shows how to pull all the ingredients together into a strong, self-sustaining design.

The sentient computer virus causes more trouble for the twenty planets that make up the human elite. It embarks on a method using an intelligent bug queen that sends her worker and soldier bugs to take over a planet that is lightly populated after a long war of attrition. Once again, the earthman Jonathan Peel is sent to this planet by Myfous along with a small band of soldiers to find out what is happening. He finds that new queens are pregnant with super bug soldiers, modified by Pit, that are to be an invasion force to attack all human planets. Can Jonathan and his team stop this?

Ape Seed
The Second World War should have been dead and buried, but trouble always comes from those allowed to escape. The Waffen SS is alive and kicking, having remained underground for decades, hidden by sympathisers in South America. A new breed of soldier begins to make itself felt, assassinations become every day occurrences in certain parts of the world, then strange things begin to happen, yet the main powers still slumber in the sure knowledge that they are supreme. Realisation comes too late for some, but not for one or two men who will not easily be deterred.

Deadly Suicide
A half-mad Wyoming senator is one of the most evil men you could ever wish to meet, and his cult of Abbadon is hell bent on mass suicide, but they want to take everyone else in the world with them. The Yellowstone Park volcano has lain dormant for seventy thousand years, but this senator has a small nanobug that will make it erupt in a maelstrom of fire and ash; few will survive in a world that is covered in darkness and ice for years to come. With a price on his head, and suffering from memory loss, Tom Ranswick heads for the park.

Seeds, Sex and Civilization: How the Hidden Life of Plants Has Shaped Our World
In this absorbing history, Peter Thompson explores how mankind has gradually learned what seeds are, where they come from and their role in the survival of the productivity of crops and wildflowers. Thompson brings to life the eccentrics, explorers, amateurs and highly dedicated professionals who have accumulated our knowledge. Some are well known, such as Charles Darwin and Gregor Mendel; others, like the Russian geneticist Nikolai Vivilov, are less so. The book concludes with a chapter by Stephen Harris on current debates about genetically modified crops, seed conservation and plant ownership in the contemporary world.

Basic Vision: An Introduction to Visual Perception
Why do things look blurry underwater? Why do people drive too fast in fog? How do you high-pass filter a cup of tea? What have mixer taps to do with colour vision? Basic Vision: An Introduction to Visual Perception demystifies the processes through which we see the world. Written by three authors with over 80 years of research and undergraduate teaching experience between them, it leads the reader step-by-step through the intricacies of visual processing, with full-colour illustrations on nearly every page. The writing style captures the excitement of recent research in neuroscience that has transformed our understanding of visual processing, but delivers it with a humour that keeps the reader enthused, rather than bemused. The book takes us through the various elements that come together as our perception of the world around us: the perception of size, colour, motion, and three-dimensional space. It illustrates the intricacy of the visual system, discussing its development during infancy, and revealing how the brain can get it wrong, either as a result of brain damage, through which the network of processes become compromised, or through illusion, where the brain compensates for mixed messages by seeing what it thinks should be there, rather than conveying the reality. The book also demonstrates the importance of contemporary techniques and methodology, and neuroscience-based techniques in particular, in driving forward our understanding of the visual system. Online Resource Centre The Online Resource Centre to accompany Basic Vision features: For registered adopters: Figures from the book available to download, to facilitate lecture preparation. Test bank of multiple choice questions - a readily available tool for either formative or summative assessment. A Journal Club, with questions to lead students through key research articles that relate to topics covered in the book.

The Flower of Myfous
Described as igniters, a small proportion of earth people overheat and burn up, leaving just a small pile of grey ash. Jonathan Peel is one such man. Snatched from the jaws of death a second before oblivion, he awakes to find that he is not on earth, nor dead, but on a planetoid where he is still alive, in perfect health and now a young man. For this gift he has to agree to help a mysterious stranger called Myfous. Jonathan has a choice: accept what Myfous offers and perhaps die, or go back to a certain death. He will be one of three beings from different worlds to form an assault group, their basic DNA altered to fight a growing menace that is destroying planets and galaxies; this is a vicious weed that eats and destroys every life form it comes up against. The fight back has begun to save the Milky Way galaxy and retake those that have been lost to the weeds and the control of a mad, sentient computer.

Rum Punch and Revolution: Taverngoing and Public Life in Eighteenth-Century Philadelphia
'Twas Honest old Noah first planted the Vine And mended his morals by drinking its Wine. -from a drinking song by Benjamin Franklin There were, Peter Thompson notes, some one hundred and fifty synonyms for inebriation in common use in colonial Philadelphia and, on the eve of the Revolution, just as many licensed drinking establishments. Clearly, eighteenth-century Philadelphians were drawn to the tavern. In addition to the obvious lure of the liquor, taverns offered overnight accommodations, meals, and stabling for visitors. They also served as places to gossip, gamble, find work, make trades, and gather news. In Rum Punch and Revolution, Thompson shows how the public houses provided a setting in which Philadelphians from all walks of life revealed their characters and ideas as nowhere else. He takes the reader into the cramped confines of the colonial bar room, describing the friendships, misunderstandings and conflicts which were generated among the city's drinkers and investigates the profitability of running a tavern in a city which, until independence, set maximum prices on the cost of drinks and services in its public houses. Taverngoing, Thompson writes, fostered a sense of citizenship that influenced political debate in colonial Philadelphia and became an issue in the city's revolution. Opinionated and profoundly undeferential, taverngoers did more than drink; they forced their political leaders to consider whether and how public opinion could be represented in the counsels of a newly independent nation.

Atheism in Christianity: The Religion of the Exodus and the Kingdom
Visionary utopian thinker finds the atheist core of the bible. In recent years religious faith has come under much scrutiny from secular progressives. Fear of a rise in Islamic and Christian fundamentalism has prompted numerous attacks on the belief in God which make no attempt to understand its source. In this long unavailable book, Ernst Bloch provides an original historical examination of Christianity in an attempt to find its social roots. He pursues a detailed study of the Bible and its long standing fascination for 'ordinary and unimportant' people. In the Bible stories' promise of utopia and their antagonism to authority, Bloch locates the appeal to the oppressed - the desire 'to transcend without transcendence'. Through a lyrical yet close and nuanced analysis he explores the tensions within the text that promote atheism, against the authoritarian metaphysical theism imposed on it by priest interpreters. At the Bible's heart he finds a heretical core and claims, paradoxically, that a good Christian must necessarily be an atheist.
