from Pan Macmillan
James M. Haule & J. H. Stape (editors)
Pan Macmillan; January 2002
volume covers a wide range of editorial confrontations with
Virginia Woolf's writings, touching on almost every genre
in which she wrote: fiction, diary, letter, and biography.
It describes a variety of editorial practices and deals with
current theories informing the critical editing of the prose
of this singular 20th-century writer. Essays by distinguished
scholar-critics of Virginia Woolf tackles a number of contemporary
issues in critical editing: the use of pre-print materials,
authorial revisions, and the collation of historical texts.
They engage in a lively discussion of the present-day editorial
apparatus, tackling questions of annotation and paratext.
Prayer of the Night Shepherd
Pan Macmillan; March 2005
crumbling hotel on the border of England and Wales, a suggestion
of inherited evil, a mystifying love affair and the longdisputed
origins of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's The Hound of the Baskervilles.
It's all endlessly fascinating for young Jane Watkins, flushed
with the freedom of her first weekend job. But the sinister
side becomes increasingly apparent to Jane's mother, Merrily,
diocesan exorcist for Herford. And the snow is coming
and a killing. Altogether, one of the most original and atmospheric
crime novels you'll read this year.
Anatomy of Terror
Pan Macmillan; August 2004
Sinclair's unique history of terrorism brilliantly explores
the methods and thinking behind terrorism and shows how the
nature of terror has not changed since the days of the Assassins
and the Mongol hordes. The only difference is that modern
technology can kill in tens of millions rather than the tens
of thousands the horror tactics of antiquity managed. Meticulously
researched and beautifully written, An Anatomy of Terror dissects
the use of atrocity from the Roman destruction of Carthage
to the suicide attacks on the World Trade Centre. Bold, incisive
and compelling, Andrew Sinclair's An Anatomy of Terror is
an essential history of our times.
