How did a big-game fishing trip rudely interrupted by sharks inspire one of the key scenes in Hemingway's The Old Man and the Sea? How did Robert Louis Stevenson's cruise to the cannibal-infested South Sea islands prove instrumental in his writing of The Beach of Falesa and The Ebb Tide? How did Masefield survive Cape Horn and a near-nervous breakdown to write Sea Fever? The waters of this world have swirled through storytelling ever since the Celts spun the tale of Beowulf and Homer narrated The Odyssey. This enthralling book takes us on a tour of the most dangerous, exciting and often eccentric escapades of literature's sailing stars, and how these true stories inspired and informed their best-loved works. Arthur Ransome, Erskine Childers, Jack London and many others are featured as we find out how extraordinary fact fed into unforgettable fiction.

THE LITTLE SEA HORSE is a heartwarming adventure brought to life by the author, Clara Stuart. It is a story of people touching the lives of their neighbors, with the help of a tiny creature who was discovered by mere chance. If the Lewis's hadn't gone fishing that morning, if they hadn't decided at the last minute to take one last vacation before winter came, this little wonder would have died, never to share his special gift with the world. Although the story is completely fictional, the author "dots" the story with similarities from her personal experiences, as well as the sweet spices of inspiration sprinkled throughout the book.. A few years ago, she and her husband had gone fishing on the Snake River in Northeastern Oregon. It was a cold, damp and foggy morning, but that didn't keep them from enjoying the scenery that they loved so much. They shoved their boat away from the dock and headed down the Snake River toward their favorite fishing spot. Just as they rounded the bend, something in the water caught Clara's eye. "I wonder what that is?" she asked her husband. It was just a Styrofoam bait box someone had carelessly tossed overboard. He didn't pay much attention to it, but Clara, well with the imagination that she has, it sent her mind whirling and creating. By the time they got home she already had the first two chapters planned, and a story was born. . . Al and Ellen Lewis were on vacation, enjoying a little fishing at their favorite place on earth. It was the beginning of autumn, and the days were dreary and cold. They were motoring out on the Snake River taking in the gorgeous view, on their way to their lucky fishing spot. The snow capped mountains stood tall behind the brown rolling hills in Northeastern Oregon. The River was cold and murky and fog ways laying low along the banks. All at once Ellen's eyes were drawn to a snag in the water, seemingly caught up in the currant. The water was churning, or was it. . . ? Coaxing her husband to get closer to the thing that was thrashing and fighting for its life, they only frightened it more. It freed itself but at the same time plunged into the frigid water and went under. As soon as it popped to the surface, Ellen grabbed it and pulled it into the boat. As the drama unfolds, it takes the Lewis's on an adventure of heartbreak, compassion, and love. The special little Sea Horse that they pulled out of the water, although tiny and helpless, turned out to be the very burst of inspiration that this small community needed. People who had neglected to stay in tune with their neighbors, came together in the time of need, taking the Lewis's "full circle" and beyond.

The Wurms of Blearmouth

A new novella from New York Times bestselling author Steven Erikson, set in the world of the Malazan Book of the Fallen, The Wurms of Blearmouth. Tyranny comes in many guises, and tyrants thrive in palaces and one-room hovels, in back alleys and playgrounds. Tyrants abound on the verges of civilization, where disorder frays the rule of civil conduct and propriety surrenders to brutal imposition. Millions are made to kneel and yet more millions die horrible deaths in a welter of suffering and misery. But leave all that behind and plunge into escapist fantasy of the most irrelevant kind, and in the ragged wake of the tale told in Lees of Laughter's End, those most civil adventurers, Bauchelain and Korbal Broach, along with their suitably phlegmatic manservant, Emancipor Reese, make gentle landing upon a peaceful beach, beneath a quaint village at the foot of a majestic castle. There they make acquaintance with the soft-hearted and generous folk of Spendrugle, which lies at the mouth of the Blear River and falls under the benign rule of the Lord of Wurms in his lovely keep. Make welcome, then, to Spendrugle's memorable residents, including the man who should have stayed dead, the woman whose prayers should never have been answered, the tax collector everyone ignores, the ex-husband town militiaman who never married, the beachcomber who lives in his own beard, and the now singular lizard cat who used to be plural, and the girl who likes to pee in your lap. And of course, hovering over all, the denizen of the castle keep, Lord—Ah, but there lies this tale. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
