Jenna's Creek is an imaginary small town in 20th century Ohio. The author, Teresa Slack, said "When people say nothing ever happens in a small town, they just aren’t paying attention. I grew up in southern Ohio and something was always going on…if you just took the time to open your eyes and shut your mouth. My fascination with small town scandals birthed the Jenna’s Creek Series." The series is primarily about Christian themes, woven in around romances, crimes, and family secrets, and the intertwining of past and present."

Michelle Hurley and her younger sister Nicole were abandoned by their parents and raised by their resentful grandmother. Michelle covers her loneliness by throwing herself into her nursing career in the Ozarks. Her feckless sister abandons her two children at Michelle's house; at first resentful, Michelle decides that this is one of the best things that ever happened to her. She also opens her life to romance. ""After the original publication of A Tender Reed, I got a lot of feedback from readers that they wanted more romance. Well, who doesn’t? It took some time, but I added nearly 50% to the story and turned A Tender Reedi into two shorter novels." from the author's website.

The series is inspired by both Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice and fantasy fiction. It takes place in a world that is inhabited by both humans, who have a medieval social structure, and the Oldkind, supernatural beings.The latter are divided into three groups, Tekari, who are hostile to human beings (gryphons, lamia, direwolves, worms, banshees); Shani, who are friendly (wyverns, dragons, beoryn, forge-wights, goblins, hobgoblins, wood-wights); and Idar, who are indifferent, but not harmless if disturbed (trolls). Besides the usual social classes, humans are divided between riders and nakla. Riders bond with wyverns, beoryns, and descendants of Edan the Fireborn, with dragons. The bond is very close. Nakla warriors are called Rangers. Humans worship one or more facets of the Fourfold God: Mikla (Protector, W), Thell (Unmaker, S), Janna (Provider, E), Odei (Creator, N). All but Thell are represented as veiled. (Heartstone pp.87-89)

Chancellor Anubis takes a young orphaned girl, Sariphi, or Sari, in chains to the King of Beasts as the 99th sacrifice. Unlike previous sacrifices, she does not wail and beg for her life. When Anubis describes her a meager and not worth eating, protests being speaking of so slightingly, and insists that parts of her are quite delicious. . .=======The King of the Beasts and Demons regularly receives female human sacrifices to eat in order to assert the dominance of his people over the human race. However, for the 99th sacrifice, the human girl brought to the capital, Sariphi, intrigues the Beast King. In fact she isn't afraid of him or any other beast and even accepts her death without begging or crying as she has neither home nor family to return to if she were released. The King finds her intriguing and let her stay at his side as his consort despite being human. This is the story of how Sariphi will become the queen of the demons and beasts.

These are Manga graphic novel adaptations, thus far, of European and North American literary classics. They are intended for a young adult audience. The covers credit the original authors, but they are sometimes cataloged under the adaptor. Checking the website should help with this. They include explanations from the adaptor and illustrator about how they were planned out. Being Manga, they start at what would be the back cover in European cultures, and read right to left.

This series takes place mostly on the planet of Wakanreo. ThreeCom thought it was premature to contact the planet and offer them a membership, but Terrans were able to push them into contact. The Wakanreans are extremely advance chemists, and business interests wanted access.The results have not been altogether happy. Terrans are similar enough to Wakanreans to interbreed, and also to throw a wrench into the process by which Wakanreans mate. Resentment in some quarters is becoming violent.Caught up in this, and partly a trigger, is the family of Dina Bellaire (Terran) and Kuaron Du (Wakaranean). The two became irrevocably, monogamously bonded in the Wakarean manner. The union has been personally happy, but, since Kuaron is from a distinguished family, these was considered particularly outrageous, but there's no way to undo it.Wakarean public opinion became even more negative when they produced two children.The result is a potentially explosive struggle. Radical elements want to force ThreeCom off planet, hopefully with the mixed species children.

They are the great-grandchildren of Queen Victoria, through one of her daughters. Binky is the son of his father's first wife, while Georgie is the daughter of his second wife, the beautiful former Cockney actress, now Claire Daniels. Claire bolted when Georgie was very young and has run through a string of wealthy lovers and husbands. She is not very maternal. Georgie is in her early twenties. Although she had a Season, she is unmarried, although her cousins, the Royal Family are always willing to find a dreadful prince or aristocrat that she could marry.Unfortunately, her father committed suicide shortly after losing most of his fortune. This and the death taxes have left the Rannoch somewhat cash strapped, at least for their class. Binky's duchess, Hilda Ermintrude Rannoch, "Fig," while very impressed with her own position is even cheaper than she needs to be, resents having to support Georgie, and is very unpleasant.Georgie, fed up, strikes out for London to try and find a job in the Depression era, without any job skills. The Royals would be happy to find a position for Georgie as a lady-in-waiting to some elderly relation living in the country, but Georgie is reluctant.

Lee, a widower with two children, Mark and Mildred (the latter lives in England.)  She has a picture of him in every room in the house, and often talks to one of them.   She considers herself the caretaker for her stepchildren of the fortune that there father left.   Although wealthy enough to live a life a leisure, Rosie prefers to run a restaurant, take-out, and catering service known as Aunty Lee's Delights. Her goal is to preserve Peranakan cooking, which she defines as whatever she cooks. She uses a mixture of traditional and up-to-date measures: whatever works best. She is assisted by Nina Balignasay, a Filipina nurse whose residence in Singapore is of dubious legalityM.L. Lee dotingly called his wife kiasu, kaypoh, em zhai se'  (tireless, fearless, busybody).  Rosie is very nosy, and considers herself related to anyone who eats her food, thus justifying her interfering in their lives. Her frequent gifts of delicious food do much to reconcile them to her meddling.

The series is a mixture of fantasy and historical. It is set in the 14th century in Russia. Many of the characters in Moscow, the Grand Princes, the Metropolitan, are real people, and the scene is loving described. The family of Pyotr Vladimirich, a boyar living in Lesnaya Zemla, in northern Rus', is fictitious. The real characters are given fictitious wives and children who interact with Pyotr's family, and help make history. Ivan II of Moscow's second wife is replaced by a startling, mysterious beauty, thought by many to be a witch. Marina Ivanova was a real person, born to Ivan ii's real second wife, but in the trilogy she is an object of fear, and is sent to marry Pyotr. The marriage is happy until Marina dies in childbirth with their youngest child, Vasilii. This is a child with her grandmother's powers, including the ability to see the chyerti, characters of Russian folklore, who are being overwhelmed by the Christians. Marina and her youngest daughter are also mysteriously connected to Moroko, a demon involved with both winter and death.

In the seventh century, during the Tang dynasty, a Chinese Buddhist priest named Xuan Zang (c.596-664) embarked on a dangerous pilgrimage to India to bring Buddhist scriptures back to China. The entire journey lasted twenty years. The priest returned to China in 645 bearing some six hundred texts and devoted the rest of his life to translating these into Chinese. In addition, he dictated a travelogue to a disciple and called it The Tang Record of the Western Territories. In it he recounted details from his journey, the people he had met, and the harsh geography he survived (he scaled three of Asia's highest mountain ranges and nearly died of thirst on the desert plains.)Xuan Zang became a favorite of the Tang Emperor and a famous religious folk hero. For the next one thousand years, the story of his pilgrimage inspired the literary imagination of storytellers and writers who embellished the journey with unbelievable episodes and fantastic characters drawn from popular folklore. In the thirteenth century, a supernatural monkey and pig became the priest's travel companions.[...]Although written anonymously, there is much evidence showing that Journey to the West was most likely written around 1575 by a court official, poet, and humor writer name Wu Cheng'en (c. 1500-82).

Penny Parker, and her best friend Louise Sidell are in high school at the beginning of the series. Penny is the daughter of the widowed Anthony B. Parker, owner and editor of the Riverview Star newspaper. Penny is an only child, and since her mother's death, she has been raised by the Parker's housekeeper, Mrs. Maude Weems.Also working at the paper are Mr. DeWitt, the city editor; Jerry Livingston, reporter; and Salt Sommer, photographer. Salt was a couple of years ahead of Penny and Louise in school.Mildred Wirt, whose married name was Benson, wrote 23 of the first 25 Nancy Drew books, and more later, under the house pen-name of Carolyn Keene. Benson, who was a newspaper reporter herself, favored Penny Parker over all the other books she wrote, including Nancy Drew. Her obituary quoted her as saying, " 'I always thought Penny Parker was a better Nancy Drew than Nancy is,' Mrs. Benson said in 1993.". The series, which is now in the public domain, has been rewritten by Alice Simpson. The names of the books have been changed. The first book, Tale of the Witch Doll has been adapted as Peril at the Pink Lotus. Penny Parker has become Jane Carter, widow of a journalist, who has come back home to live with her father. Most of the characters are renamed, and some, like Penny's best chum, Louise Sidell, have been expanded. Attitudes which would now be considered racist have been updated, and the women are a bit more independent, not that they weren't already pretty independent in the originals.

This quirky historical cozy mystery series is set in the fictional American city of Greenville during the 1920s and features Jane Carter, a young widow who returns home to live with her father after the tragic death of her journalist husband.This series is adapted from Mildrid Wirt’s Penny Parker mysteries, which have fallen into the public domain. The author has made extensive alterations and additions to both the characters and plots of the original novels: Penny Parker is a teenager whereas Jane is a widow in her 20s. Readers familiar with Ms. Wirt’s stories will notice many similarities.See also: Penny Parker Mystery StoriesThese are murderless mysteries. Despite a constant crime wave, there seem to be no murders in the city of Greenville. There may be plenty of peril in the form of kidnappings, heists, and the occasional assault, but nobody ever dies, and justice is always served.Jane’s father owns a local newspaper and wants Jane to take it over someday, but Jane is adamant that she has no desire to be a reporter. Instead, she turns her talent for writing to concocting melodramatic romances for fly-by-night rags who almost never pay on time. Not only has Jane vowed she will never be a newspaperman herself, she's doubly insistent on never again marrying one.Accompanying Jane on her adventures is her best friend, Florence. Jane and Flo may get into one perilous situation after another, but they are never damsels in distress, because, as Jane puts it, "A real lady always carries her own pocket knife."All this getting into harm's way alarms her father's housekeeper, Mrs. Timms. Mrs. Timms believes it's her mission in life to turn motherless Jane into a proper lady, but seeing as Jane has just turned twenty-four, Mrs. Timms considerable efforts appear to have been in vain. However, the housekeeper won't give up trying, just as Jane won't give up on seeing Mrs. Timms and her father center-aisling it to the altar and saying, "I do."

The numbering of the series is inconsistent from source to source, because the two novellas in What Ho, Automaton! are sometimes counted individually, making Reggiecide number 3, etc.The first two mysteries, i.e."What Ho, Automaton" and "Something Rummy This Way Comes," were published in the ebook What Ho, Automaton! The first four mysteries were published in the trade paperback What Ho, Automata, i.e. the two in the collection What Ho, Automaton; as well as Reggiecideand The Aunt Paradox A parody of P. G. Wodehouse's Bertie Wooster and Jeeves stories, taking place in a steam punk, early 20th century, Victorian England. (The bionic Victoria's reign has been extended.) In addition to various automatons, there are prometheans, i.e, persons, or hybrids of persons assembled from dead bodies, both human and animal.Reginald Worcester, seeing himself as a new Sherlock Holmes, accompanied by his automaton valet, Reeves, as his Watson, sets himself up as a gentleman detective. In reality, the roles are reversed, of course. ,There are references to various other works: H.G. Wells' Time Machine, Stella Gibbons' Cold Comfort Farm, Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, and a variety of mysteries from which Worcester has gained all of his knowledge of detective work.

The series apparently starts in the 2040s; in the No Time Like the Past, Madeleine Maxwell mentions that the Crystal Exhibition of 1851 is approximately two hundred years before the time they traveled from. Max is the narrator of most of the stories.Shortly after a civil war in England, people arrive from the future with "pods", time travel machines that resemble stone huts. They persuade the government to finance them through Thirsk University, and set up the Institute of Historical Research at St. Mary's under Dr. Bairstow. They send out historians to investigate history "in contemporary time" (they don't like the term "time travel"). In addition their own time line, there are alternate time lines.Other travelers from the future include Leon Farrell, Clive Ronan, Annie Bessant. Bairstow, Ronan and Annie Bessant once formed a team, and, unfortunately, a romantic triangle.Since St. Mary's is a historic building, the staff are in constant battle with the Society for the Protection of Historical Buildings (SPOHB), especially when experiments goes awry and knock down parts of the building. Adding to the confusion, Dr. Bairstow's personal assistant, whether he likes it or not, is Cleo Partridge, an incarnation of Kleio (or Clio), the Muse of History, who intervenes as she sees fit.

Tommy and Tuppence are two fictional detectives, recurring characters in the work of Agatha Christie. Their full names are Thomas Beresford and his wife Prudence (née Cowley). They started out their career as accidental blackmailers (in a search of adventure and money), but the detecting life soon proved more profitable and much more exciting.Tuppence appears as a charismatic, impulsive, and intuitive person while Tommy is less imaginative and less likely to be diverted from the truth which is why they are shown to make a good team. It is in this first book The Secret Adversary that they meet up after the World War I, and come to realise that, although they have been friends for most of their lives, they have now fallen in love with each other.Unlike many other recurring detective characters, including the better known Christie detectives, Tommy and Tuppence aged in time with the real world, from their early twenties to their seventies. The stories and settings have a more pronounced period-specific flavour than the stories featuring the better known Christie characters. Tommy and Tuppence in Wikipedia

The resulting interactions have ranged between cooperative and disastrous for the indigenous DdaeranCaelestis is a part of New Eden dominated by the Yu Founding Family. At Mynyddamore, Mark, the youngest of the four founding Yu brothers reached an agreement with the Ddaeran, who were besieged by bandits, to trade protection for work, and allow the Ddaeran to accept new technology and customs at their own rate.I have not the faintest idea how to number the books within the Paradisi Chronicles, assuming that they can be assembled in any particular order.

The Nine are kingdoms on an unnamed world.   The world appears to be roughly equivalent to the 18th century in our world.   In addition to developing technology, the world has several types of magic workers:The Privileged are extremely powerful and work magic with the use of special gloves.  The most powerful are part of the Royal Cabal, and work for the king.  They are allergic to gun powder, and hate the power mages, who are the only people able to kill them.  They do die if stabbed or shot, but usually they can destroy their attackers before they can act, and they are in any case well guarded.Predeii are similar to the Privileged, but they are much more powerful, and very difficult to kill. They are very long-lived. They had been forgotten, but some have made themselves known during at the time of Promise of BloodPowder Mages are able to control black powder, whether using it to make extremely accurate long shots, and even control a bullet in flight. It is also a stimulant to them which heightens the senses, enhances reaction time, strength and endurance.  Because of their ability to make very long shots, they are the only people who can generally succeed in killing the PrivilegedThe Knacked are people who have one very strong talent: this can include going completely without sleep, an eidetic memory, or other things.Unknown magical workers include Ka-poel, a woman, although she appears to be a child, whose magic is powerful, but not understood by outsiders. She often works with wax dolls, which she can use to affect other living beings.Most magic workers have a "third eye" which they can use to contact Elsewhere, a different view of the world which reveals magic.

Website for E.M. Foner, including character information for the EarthCent Ambassador series: http://www.ifitbreaks.com/ Although each book is self-contained, i.e. no cliff-hangers, it is a good idea to read them in order.********I wrote Date Night on Union Station while taking a break from work on a science fiction epic I've been struggling with for years. The goal was to cheer myself up and to find out if there is still an audience for a science fiction comedy that gets its laughs from dialogue and funny situations rather than from gross-outs and shocks. I received so many requests to extend the Date Night universe into a series that I put aside my epic for an extended period to write a sequel, Alien Night on Union Station, and I've since become addicted to the characters who seem to be writing themselves. Especially the dog.The EarthCent series could be rated PG, no bloodshed, no graphic sex, no four letter words. And after years of imagining a galaxy for my epic in which multiple human civilizations are at war with each other, it did me a world of good to write about a galaxy where most people are just trying to make a living and find some joy in life.Each book is a self-contained story so there are no cliff-hangers. My main interest in the EarthCent universe, aside from the relations between people, aliens and AI, is imagining what happens with species who have had access to high-tech for, in some cases, tens of millions of years. Do they continue to work? Do they continue to care? Do they die out, go back to nature, try to elevate themselves to gods? How do the nearly omniscient AI deal with issues like monetary policy and rental agreements? [retrieved 5/5/2016 from the Author Page at Amazon.com]

Decius Caecilius Metellus the Younger is a member of a large and powerful noble plebeian family in Rome. He is something of a black sheep, especially in the eyes of his generally disapproving father, DCM the Elder. Born in the early 90s BCE (dates are a bit approximate), he lives through the turbulent years of the ending of the republic and into the age of Augustus.The stories are written as memoirs towards the end of his long life. Cynical though he often is, Decius Caecilius also has a certain irrepressible cheer. He loves his position, his city and his comforts, but he is up to almost anything.The series is discussed in "John Maddox Roberts and Steven Saylor: Detecting in the Final Decades of the Roman Republic" by Terrance L.

Added a description (Engelsk)
It is difficult to organize this series. Quest for Honour may be the retitling of a previously issued book, perhaps Conflict of Empires. Both are described as the third book, and both involve conflict with Sumer. Clash of Empires is given as the 6th book, but that may be counting Eskkar and Trella as Book 1.The nomads are on the march and the usual procedure is for the towns and villages to abandon whatever they can't carry and flee before them.The leaders of Akkad, reluctant to abandon their wealth, turn to the warrior Eskkar to lead the city to build walls and enlarge an army to fight. Eskkar is given Trella, an enslaved former aristocrat to advise him on political issues, and they prepare for battle.

Frederick Frankford Fletcher was a clumsy, nerdy, socially inept accountant working for a firm, until he was turned into a vampire. He immediately started his own firm so that he could work nights, gained a vampire's astounding physical prowess, and remained nerdy and socially inept. Things start happening when he decides to attend his tenth year high school reunion (it seemed like a good idea at the time.) It turns out that parahumans helped the Americans win the Revolution, and in return were granted special privileges, although they keep a low profile. A super top-secret agency deals with their affairs, and with individuals that go rogue. If this sounds sadly like the Native American, consider the difficulty of sending werewolves and demons on a Trail of Tears.The first book in this humorous series is told like a series of interrelated short stories making up a novel.

This is a spinoff series from the Admiral Geary series by the same author. Geary briefly interacts with Gwen Iceni, CEO of the Midway system, who has decided to seceded from the embattled Syndicate empire. She is chief in charge of the series, and also has a background in the mobil forces, i.e. the star ship fleet. She joins force in an uneasy alliance with Artur Drakon, CEO of the ground forces. The series begins after The Lost Fleet: Beyond the Frontier: Dreadnaught and otherwise takes place at the same time as the Lost Fleet: Beyond the Frontier series, and occasionally intersects with it.My suggestion, if you want to read the two series as chronologically as possible is to read:Lost Fleet: Beyond the Frontier: DreadnaughtThe Lost Stars: Tarnished KnightLost Fleet: Beyond the Frontier: InvincibleThe Lost Stars: Perilous ShieldLost Fleet: Beyond the Frontier: GuardianOn the other hand, Campbell seems to go in for cliffhanger endings in this series, so you may not want to wait to read the next installment.

Begins June 1955.   Pathologist Richard Pryor and forensic scientist Angela Bray, after meeting at the International Forensic Science Conference in Edinburgh, have pooled their resources to open a private firm offering various forensic services, including paternity tests, autopsies, etc.   Pryor has also taken a job as a part-time lecturer.   They have agreed to give the business two years before deciding if they can make a go of it.   They have moved into the comodious Garth House that Richard inherited from his aunt Gladys, putting laboratories and offices on the first floor and living (separately) on the second floor.   The house is in the Wye Valley, which overlaps England and Wales. They have inherited Aunt Gladys's gardner/odd-jobs man Jimmy Jenkins whether they want him or not, but he proves to be a willing worker.   They have hired lab-technician Sian Lloyd and secretary-housekeeper Moira Davison.   There is an underground sexual frisson between Pryor and the three women, but no overt romance.    Lawyer Edward Lethbridge hires them for one of their first cases, and introduces them to private eye Trevor Mitchell, with whom they form a happy working relationship.   Pryor went to school in Cardiff with Brian Meredith, now a general practitioner and coroner in Monmouth, and he has been an invaluable contact for them in securing jobs for their new firm.

This was apparently first written as a four-book series. It has since been expanded. It is told as a memoir by Titus Pullus aged 61, three years after retiring as Camp Prefect. It chronicles his adventures with his best friend, Vibius Domitius, both drafted into the 10th legion in 61 BC/BCE.Originally Marching with Caesar: Conquest of Gaul was both the first written and the first in a series.  Later a prequel: Marching With Caesar®-Birth of the 10th Legion was added.  The Triumph of Caesar is an alternate history which has as its premise that Julius Caesar heed the warnings about going ago the Senate, avoided assassination, and departed the next day as planned to fight Parthia.   So successful is he that he ends up fighting Japan.A Comment from the author, downloaded 4/30/2014 from Amazon.com, Marching with Caesar: Conquest of Gaul:I am a 54 year old retired Infantry Marine, born and raised in Texas and currently living on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington state. I have been writing since my first novel, written at the age of 10, when my friends and yours truly fought off the Soviet hordes, who just happened to pick my block to launch their invasion. That was their big mistake. But like a lot of dreams, it got sidetracked until recently, when I decided to focus my passion on an era and subject that interested me a great deal. Like my characters in Ancient Rome, I have served as the pointy tip of the spear of our nation's policy, and it is with this perspective that I tell the story of Titus Pullus and his friends. This is my first published novel, and is the first in a completed four-book series that covers the career of Titus Pullus.

This is my first published novel, and is the first in a completed four-book series that covers the career of Titus Pullus.

Written by "Mark Phillips", a pseudonym of Gordon Randall Garrett and Laurence Mark Janifer, following the paranormal adventures of FBI agent Kenneth J. Malone in the 1970s. The series goes: Brain Twister, The Impossibles, Supermind, and each builds on events, characters and phenomena introduced in the earlier work, so reading in sequence is worthwhile. (All three are in Project Gutenberg, so that should be easy!) The long-suffering Malone keeps getting assigned to the wacky cases that nobody else can get to the bottom of, falling to whacks on the head and for gorgeous girls as he ploughs through them. All three are light, breezy, humorous gumshoe-meets-unexplained-phenomena yarns, and well worth a read. That Sweet Little Lady was expanded in Brain TwisterOut like a Light was expanded into The Impossibles Occasion for Disaster was expanded to Supermind

The series begins in 1795, and centers around William Rees, a veteran of the Revolutionary War, a land owner, and a skilled weaver. Rees is restless, and can make more money as a weaver than as a farmer, so he left the farm in the hands of his wife, Dolly while he traveled around getting weaving jobs. Dolly died in 1787.   Rees worked the farm for two years, but then invited his sister Caroline and her husband to run the farm in return for caring for his only child, David Rees.   He did not recognize how badly his son was treated during his infrequent visits home, and David ran away in 1795, at the age of 13, to the Zion Shaker Community.

Serier: Dido Kent
Added a description (Engelsk)
Kirkus Reviews said: "If Jane Austen had written Miss Marple, she would have been Dido Kent."  The stories begin in 1805, and mostly take place as the English spinster is visiting friends and relatives.  Dido is uncomfortably outspoken and intelligent for many of her contemporaries, including possible suitors.   She is drawn into various odd circumstances by a mixture of a desire to help and simple curiosity.Remarks from Anna Dean on the series:The Dido Kent series of mystery novels has grown out of many things including my enjoyment of puzzles and word-play, my love of the English countryside in which I have always lived, my interest in old houses, my time spent reading eighteenth and nineteenth century documents and my affection for the work of Jane Austen. The books are not in any sense continuations or 'spinoffs' of Austen's work. But they are set in the same period and they tend to focus on '3 or 4 families in a country village' - the setting which Jane Austen once described as 'the delight of my life.' There are also other influences and references, not only to the novels but also Jane Austen's own life. For example, the visit to Lyme in Bellfield Hall is influenced by Persuasion; there are parallels with Emma in A Gentleman of Fortune; and the ruined abbey in A Woman of Consequence owes much to Northanger Abbey. Readers unfamiliar with Austen's work need not worry about all this. These allusions and references are certainly not essential to understanding the stories. Sometimes though, there are extra clues which avid readers of Jane Austen may be able to pick up; but, beware, the references to her life and work are not always pointing you in the right direction… And just a quick note about names: Bellfield Hall was first published in Britain as A Moment of Silence and, in that version, the name of Edgar Montague's country house is Belsfield, not Bellfield. But the latter name was thought, by my U.S. publishers, to be more comfortable for American pronunciation.[retrieved March 29, 2014 from Amazon.com]

These are the adventures of an assassin, described in the third story: "He is accompanied by a young boy, some three years in age.  Whether it is his own son, or they are together for some other reason, none can tell.  Indeed, the man's age, his country of origin, all are cloaked in mystery.  What is known, my Lord, is his deadly skill.   No one he has been hired to kill has ever escaped alive, and they say he leaves no trace of evidence behind… Those who hire him must reveal their secrets before he will accept the job.  Yet though he could blackmail them, there is no evidence that any have tried to kill him once he has finished his work.  In short, my Lord, his skill is so great that they dare not try."Lone Wolf is later revealed to be Ogami Itto, and has embarked on his bloody path intending to avenge his clan, suppressed by the Shogun, having refused to enact the penalty of seppuku, or ritual suicide. Daigoro is indeed his son. The work was begun in 1970, the stories serialized in Manga Action magazine under the title Kozure Okami "eventually spinning off a television series, six motion pictures, and even theme song records."The stories have been collected and published worldwide, winning numerous awards.

This series is narrated by a large dog of uncertain breeding, who is the adoring companion of Bernie Little, a private investigator. Chet is a little too knowledgeable for a dog, but Quinn really nails the doggy view of life.The prequel was actually written after the first four novels, and it might be better to read it after reading at least the first novel.The "Companion" is not what one usually expects with that title, it is rather a collection of excerpts from the various books.

I don't recall a precise date being given for this series, but it is definitely the Georgian era. Ottilia Draycott, the main character, decribed as being in her late twenties, was widowed by the Battle of Monmouth (June 28, 1778), so it is probably not much later than 1788. Ottilia, both out of boredom and a desire not to be a burden on her brother, whose two sons she has been raising, takes a job is as a temporary companion to the Dowager Marchioness of Polbrook, while the regular companion Tess Mellis recovers from a broken leg. The series opens with the murder of Emily, Marchioness of Polbrook, with her husband as the most obvious suspect. In the process of solving the case, she and Lord Francis Fanshawe, the Marquis's younger brother, fall in love and marry, hence her nickname, Lady Fan.

The premise of this series is that a group of mercenaries, known as the Damned and led by Captain Gideon, failed in their duty to protect a caravan. They did die gallantly attempting to rescue the survivors. and the Lord and Lady of the River offered them a chance at salvation. They would live in a sort of sleep for centuries in the depths of the river. Those who knew the proper spell, to be recited on the spring solstice, could request them as champions in a just cause. If the gods approved, they would be released to serve the supplicant. They had until the summer equinox to succeed, or they, and the supplicant, would be damned until the end of time. The five, Gideon, Kane, Murdoch, Averel and Duncan are aided by animal avatars that rest as painting on their shields until released by the proper spell. They have supernatural powers of healing, and do not age. In the series, they are summoned by Merewan, who is oppressed, along with her people at her estate, but her guardian uncle. What she does not realize is that there is a more serious magical evil threatening the entire country.

"The country of Lescar was born out or civil war. Carved out of the collapse of the Old Tormalin Empire, the land has long been laid waste by its rival dukes, while bordering nations look on with indifference or exploit its misery. But a mismatched band of exiles and rebels are agreed that the time has come for change, and they begin to put a scheme together for revolution." from the cover of Irons in the Fire.This series has an usually rich mixture of swords, sorcery and politics. The six dukes of Lescar are each convinced that he is the rightful high king, and they beggar and devastate the lives of their subjects in endless warfare. Many families smuggle at least one member out to neighboring countries such as Ensaimin, a collection of city states, including the city of Vanam. Magical persons are divided into the trained wizards, proper, who practice elemental magic, and are under the leadership of Archmage Planir the Black. In addition, there are practitioners of Aetheric or Artifice magic. People generally cannot practice both elemental and Aetheric magic, and these people are technically not under the control of the Archmage. There are also Mageborn, people with a natural skill for elemental magic, who may try to stay under the Archmage's radar.

Hero or villain? Charlatan or true prophet? Sinner or saint? The volume in the Reputations series examine the reputations of some of history's most conspicuous, powerful and influential individuals, considering a range of representations, some of striking incompatibility. The aim is not merely to demonstrate that history is indeed, in Pieter Geyl's phrase, 'argument without end', but that the study of even contradictory conceptions can be fruitful: that the jettisoning of one these or presentation leaves behind something of value. [...] There is a commitment in each volume to showing how understanding of an individual develops (sometimes in uneven and divergent ways), whether in response to fresh evidence or waning of dominant ideologies, changing attitudes and preoccupations of the age in which an author writes, or the creation of new historical paradigms. [..] [taken from the "General editorial preface", in Edward IV]

Nine-year-old Jack is living in Cornwall on the estate of his uncle Duncan (“Druncan” behind his back), a baronet. Jack is the illegitimate son of Duncan's younger brother, James, and his actress mistress, whom he rarely sees.

Mary Quinn, sentenced as a thief at the age of twelve, is rescued from the gallows by a woman posing as a prison warden. In her new home, Miss Scrimshaw's Academy for Girls, Mary acquires a singular education, fine manners, and a surprising opportunity. The school is a cover for the Agency--an elite, top secret corps of female investigators with a reputation for results--and at seventeen, Mary joins their ranks. Y.S. Lee says of her series: "Women's choices were grim in those days, even for the clever. If a top secret women's detective agency existed in Victorian England, it left no evidence--just as well, since that would cast doubts on its competence. The Agency is a totally unrealistic, completely fictitious antidote to the fate that would otherwise swallow a girl like Mary Quinn."

The story takes place in The Old Kingdom and its southern neighbor Ancelstierre. The Old Kingdom is filled with magic: technology does not work there. Originally, all was Free Magic, but seven great practitioners created The Charter, and its attendant Charter Magic to control the chaos. The Charter is manifested in the Charter Stones and in three bloodlines: The Royal family, the family of the Abhorsen, and the Clayr.Technology does work in most of Ancelstierre, and there is a wall marking the approximate division between the countries and magic and technology. Ancelstierrre's society seems to be somewhat similar to early 20th century Europe. Magic is not entirely impossible in Ancelstierre, especially when a north wind is blowing, and most people who do not live in the north don't believe in it. Ancelstierre maintains a Perimeter, to which access is strictly limited, and anyone living near there believes in magic. The soldier guarding the perimeter use guns, but always have swords on hand for when the magic seeping over the border cause technology to fail.One of the greatest dangers to the Old Kingdom, and by extension northern Ancelstierre, is the wandering of dead spirits and the activities of necromancers, who use bells in their work. The Abhorsen (the word is a title) is a sort of anti-necromancer, the only one authorized the user of the bells. He or she enters Death, a strange, perilous river with nine gates. He returns the dead to Death, hopefully sending them past the ninth gate, from which there is no return. He may sometimes rescue people from Death, if they have not travelled too far.Lirael and Abhorsen are in effect one novel.   [Nicholas Sayre and] The Creature in the Case can also be considered a part of this novel, since it takes up six months after the other ends and continues Nicholas and Lirael's story.

Don't get too frustrated trying to read these in exact order.   Some stories are taking place simultaneously, and the short stories in the Gazettes are set at different times.  Eric Flint says that he is trying "to portray as far as possible the chaos and complexity of real history."  This is the reading order recommended by Eric Flint in the afterword to 1635: The Tangled Web for the Ring of Fire series, also known as the 1632 series, and part of the Assiti Shards series.  This is split into sections in order to convey Flint's opinion that certain Grantville Gazettes, marked with the decimal ".9x" should be written in conjunction with some of the novels, but not in any particular order.   As an example, the Grantville Gazettes marked 1.9x should be read while reading the "1" novels, but no particular order is assigned.  Titles which have the same number should be read about the same time, e.g. Ring of Fire I and Grantville Gazette I.  No matter how carefully you follow this, things will still not be entirely in strict chronological order.  (Sufficiently confused?) The works can also be read in an order reflecting the area of the world with which they are chiefly concerned, e.g. the Baltic versus southern Europe.   For a discussion of that, see the Wikipedia article reference at the end of these notes.Parts of the Earth accidentally displaced backwards in time by art works of the Assiti. The 1632 series, based on a single displacement of a West Virginia back to Germany in the 30 Years War, is the lead series. They are actually transported to 1631, but supposedly the publisher thought that 1632 was a more appealing title.The series, including the reading order, is discussed at some length in Wikipedia: 1632 series, which also has links to the official fan site etc.

Judge Dee was a historical person. His full name was Dee Jen-djieh [also Di Renjie] and he lived from A.D. 630-700. In the latter half of his career, he became a Minister of State, and through his wise counsels exercised a beneficial influence on the internal and external affairs of the T'ang Empire.However, it is chiefly because of his reputation as a detector of crime, acquired while serving as district magistrate, that his name lives on among the Chinese people. Today the Chinese still consider him their master-detective, and his name is as popular with them as Sherlock Holmes is with us.Although the stories told [in the series] are entirely fictional, I utilized some data from old Chinese crime literature, especially a thirteenth-century manual of jurisprudence and detection which I published some ten years ago in an English translation.Robert van Gulik, 1967 [from Judge Dee at Work]Celebrated Cases of Judge Dee (Dee Goong An) was an 18th century Chinese novel of three inter-related cases translated by Robert van Gulik into English. This inspired to create his own series of stories.The stories are best read in order, as they refer to one another, although they can stand on their own. The short stories, which are found in various anthologies, are noted with decimal numbers.   The anthologies in which they may be found on noted in the Description field and the Publication field of their record.

The Aetherials are an ancient magic race.   They live both on Earth (the Vaethyr) and in the Spiral (the Aeslr.)   Before human beings became so numerous, they crossed freely between the two dimensions.  Now there is a great gate, in England, and smaller portals spread around the world. The Vaethyr can sense realities on Earth beyond the mundane, the bluish Dusklands, as well as beings such as dryads and elementals. The gatekeeper is supposed to open the gate every seven years, allowing the Aetherials who live on earth to cross over into the spiral. At this time, their children are initiated into the secrets of their people.  Sometimes, it is too dangerous to open the gate.  Lawrence Wilder, the present gatekeeper not only has refused to open the great gate once, but has sealed all portals declares that it may never be possible to cross again.   Distressed at the loss of their heritage, and alienated by Lawrence's haughtiness, some of the Aetherials begin a protest and possible rebellion, while others wish to forget their magical past and become as humans.

The story is set in approximately 3,000 BC, in what is now modern Iraq. Horse nomads, migrating large distances, attack and loot villages of "dirt-eaters". Usually, villages attempt to flee and rebuild if they escape.In one very large village, Orak (Akkad) on the Tigris river, learns that they are probably going to be attacked in a few months. Nicar, patriarch of one the the five Noble families, sends for Eskkar, the most experienced soldier who hasn't fled, and asks if it is possible to defend the village.Eskkar was originally a horse nomad, but his clan was wiped out, and he has worked as a mercenary ever since. He believes that it is possible to build a wall around Okad and defend it. Nicar gives him Trella, a young slave, whose father, a leader in another village, lost out in a power struggle. She has an understanding of power and politics that Eskkar lacks, and the two join forces both to save the city, and to survive the power struggles that ensue.

The short stories are already listed in order with the relevant anthologies given in the descriptions. Feel free to add any other collections to those descriptions. Anthologies should be put in the other Miss Marple series. If you insist on putting one here, at least please don't eliminate the short stories.The basis for the chronology is from Ann Hart's The Life and Times of Miss Jane Marple (New York : Dodd, Mead & Co., 1985).Short stories that form a set are under the same number, differentiated by a decimal. The "Tuesday Night Club" mysteries, or "Tuesday Club Murders", for example, are numbers 1.1 to 1.6, and the stories told at the Bantrys' dinner party are 2.1 to 2.6.

I have done my best to put these in chronological order, but Tourney does not always give specific dates, and some details do not match up. The books also overlap, since the Prologue may take place months before the main action, but they are organized by the timing of the latter. The beginning of The Players' Boy is Dead is said to be 15 years after the death of Philip Sidney and 8 after the death of Christopher Marlowe, which would be 1601; Matthew would then meet Robert Cecil in April 1602. Elizabeth I dies March 1603. The following six novels have to be between those two dates since the Stocks know Cecil and the Queen is alive. But it does not make sense that Joan & Matthew's daughter, having announced her pregnancy in April 1602 has already had her child by July 1602, but that is the only way that Low Treason can be taking place in July of an unspecified year. Likewise, Old Saxon Blood is supposed to take place about a year after Low Treason but it is only a matter of months. Familiar Spirits apparently takes place during Old Saxon Blood, apparently after the Stocks' trip to Whitehall Palace in London, but before their departure for Derbyshire. This could be resolved if Players' Boystarted in 1599, and Low Treason could then take place in 1601. The next five books have to take place in 1602.

But it does not make sense that Joan & Matthew's daughter, having announced her pregnancy in April 1602 has already had her child by July 1602, but that is the only way that Low Treason can be taking place in July of an unspecified year. Likewise, Old Saxon Blood is supposed to take place about a year after Low Treason but it is only a matter of months. Familiar Spirits apparently takes place during Old Saxon Blood, apparently after the Stocks' trip to Whitehall Palace in London, but before their departure for Derbyshire. This could be resolved if Players' Boystarted in 1599, and Low Treason could then take place in 1601. The next five books have to take place in 1602.
