A ghostly tale from Willow Green This is a ghostly tale, from the voice of Kate Oliver, who lived with her family in Hill Top Farm, which lies on the edge of Willow Green. Her story begins when she is four years old, enjoying a birthday party with friends. Following a curious compulsion to gaze up towards her bedroom window, she perceives the sad face of a woman, enveloped in a shimmering grey vapour, looking down upon her. This unexpected occurrence is just the start of her turbulent journey of relationships, love and murder. Beth, the daughter of Josie and Max Forrester, is Kate’s best friend, and through the years a strong bond grows between the two women. A school reunion, being organised by Beth, is disrupted when poisoned pen letters begin to arrive in the normally peaceful village of Willow Green, bringing the recipients a great deal of distress. Events take an even nastier direction, when someone reaps revenge. Kate’s troubled life, has so many intriguing twists and turns, believe me when I say, they will keep you guessing right to the end.

The great challenge of Osho is not just a challenge, it is also an invitation to delve into the inner world. Within this series of discourses is the wisdom of a 20th-century buddha, made available through his response to questions from people who sense there is more to life than meets the eye. Osho covers it all - from God and faith to existence and consciousness, from the miracles of Jesus to the materializations of Sai Baba, from intellect and intelligence to the significance of the master- disciple connection. This introduction to Osho's work includes the secret aspects of spiritual traditions as well as talks on death, reincarnation and the scientific foundation of his revolutionary technique, Dynamic Meditation.

Film-maker, novelist, artist, playwright, entrepreneur, Jean Cocteau (1889-1963) regarded himself above all as a poet. No matter how diverse or prolific his creativity, he saw poetry as central to his vision of all the arts. And it was as a poet that he began his career, publishing Le Cap de Bonne-Esperance in 1919, and it was in this vocation that he published Le Requiem in 1962, shortly before his death. While Cocteau's prose has found sympathetic translators, no substantial collection of his poetry exists in English. Drawing on poems from all stages of Cocteau's life, Jeremy Reed has rectified this deficicncy by translating a generous selection of some of Cocteau's most durable poems.
