L’elfo reietto Kai Gracen è convinto di aver esaurito il suo karma positivo quando uno Stalker umano vince la partita di poker in cui Kai è stato messo in palio e lo prende con sé. In seguito alla violenta fusione tra la Terra e l’Underhill, la razza umana e quella elfica si ritrovano a vivere in un mondo caotico e infestato da mostri, e gli Stalker sono gli unici disposti ad accorrere quando all’orizzonte si profilano oscure minacce. Anche se difficile, quella dello Stalker è una vita che Kai ama: buone ricompense, qualche amico e, soprattutto, è priva di altri elfi che possano ricordargli il suo passato. E poi uccidere i mostri è facile, specialmente perché anche lui è un mostro. Quando un signore dei sidhe di nome Ryder arriva a San Diego, a Kai viene affidato un incarico per la nuova Corte dell’alba. Sulla carta si tratta di una semplice spedizione lungo la costa durante la stagione degli amori dei draghi, allo scopo di salvare una donna umana incinta in cerca di protezione. Facile, veloce e, cosa più importante, remunerativo. Tuttavia Kai si trova invischiato in una faida familiare all’ultimo sangue dalla quale non ha alcuna speranza di sottrarsi. Nessuno si è mai arricchito facendo lo Stalker. Anzi, pochi di loro arrivano alla vecchiaia, e sembra che Kai non farà eccezione.

Il Republic P-47 Thunderbolt, soprannominato "Jug" era un cacciabombardiere statunitense dotato di un motore estremamente potente, da 2.000 HP o più, ed era veloce, specialmente ad alta quota. Inoltre era pesantemente armato con 8 mitragliatrici da 12,7 mm e la sua robustezza gli permetteva di rientrare alla base anche se molto danneggiato.A partire dai primi mesi del 1943 fu impiegato intensamente su tutti i fronti, contribuendo in maniera rilevante a consolidare la supremazia alleata negli ultimi due anni di guerra. Fu costruito in complessivi 15.678 esemplari (con un costo l’uno di 83.000 dollari dell’epoca) conquistando con i colori dell’USAAF il notevole totale di 3.752 vittorie contro la perdita in combattimento di 824 macchine e, dopo il conflitto, servì nelle aviazioni di una quindicina di Paesi, Italia inclusa. Il North American P-51 Mustang viene considerato tra i migliori caccia della seconda guerra mondiale. Prodotto a partire dal 1941, fu uno dei più versatili caccia americani della seconda guerra mondiale; fu schierato sia sul fronte del Pacifico sia su quello Europeo per contrapporsi agli aerei della Luftwaffe. Fu impiegato prevalentemente come caccia di scorta alle formazioni di bombardieri Boeing B-17, ma anche come caccia bombardiere.

In this compelling biography, Christopher Sandford explores the full, inside story of Kurt Cobain. From the disruptive childhood which had such a crucial impact on Cobain's personality to the ambitious career musician who, as a friend said, "lunged for success", and the worldwide breakthrough of Nirvana's Nevermind, Sandford also writes about Cobain's stormy marriage to Courtney Love, his heroin addiction, and how he became more and more of a recluse. Finally, he writes of the crisis when, in April 1994, Cobain turned a shotgun on himself and became a martyr for disaffected youth. The result is a saga of success and corruption which John Peel has called "the ultimate rock and roll morality story".

Films featured range from La Dolce Vita in Rome to Gladiator in Morocco. and TV series' settings include Game of Thrones in Dubrovnik and The Bridge in Scandinavia, all selected by a film critic. Find the locations near you and be the star of your own show! The movies take you places: cinema is a mode of transport. In just 90 minutes, you can be whisked all the way around the globe - perhaps with a dotted red line marking your progress on a map as you go. Some films take you even farther, out of this world and to other galaxies far, far away. And conversely, there are some places that can transport you into the world of a movie. If you want to feel like James Bond, try going to James Bond Island. In a Holly Golightly mood? Have a danish pastry and some coffee outside Tiffany's in Manhattan. Or want to feel like Rocky? Then run up the steps to the Philadelphia Museum and put your hands in the air like a champ when you get to the top. This book is about the real-world places that provided the backdrops and settings for some of our most memorable collective dreams. Some of these locations played themselves and others were dressed up to look like somewhere else. But they all added texture and colour and weight to the visions of our best TV- and film-makers. Who needs CGI when the real world looks as fabulous and varied as this?
