Lillee and Thomson — a fast-bowling, fire-breathing, batsman-battering combination with no peer, who tore apart England body and soul in the 1974–75 Ashes, then put the might of Clive Lloyd’s West Indies to the sword the next wild summer.

This is their story, seen through the eyes of their teammates — all the way from suburban clubs to the national side — and of their opponents and the umpires.

Ian Brayshaw, a teammate who was at Lillee’s side as he returned from a career-threatening back injury, who knows what it’s like to face Thomson thunderbolts, orchestrates affairs in this in-depth look at a special time in world cricket.

The time when Lillee and Thommo reigned supreme.

Thommo was feared by batsmen all around the world. Sri Lankan Sunil Wettimuny recalls facing one of Thommo's balls: ""Never before or since that day did I know fear on the cricket field."" Mike Brearley, the Middlesex captain who led England during the World Series Cricket incursion, said of Thommo: ""Broken marriages, conflicts of loyalty, the problems of everyday life fall away as one faces up to Thomson."" This is Jeff Thomson's story, from the cricket fields of his Sydney schoolboy days to the international matches and beyond, as told to Ashley Mallet by Thommo, his former team mates, and his opponents. Thommo's legendary partnership with Dennis Lillee, a combination known as Lillian Thomson, was one of the most lethal in the history of cricket. As the caption to Paul Rigby's famous cartoon said: ""Ashes to ashes, dust to dustif Thommo don't get ya, Lillee must.""

Lillee & Thommo is the previously untold story of the combined devastating dominance of bowlers Jeff Thompson & Dennis Lillee. During the heyday of Australian cricket, the pair were unstoppable and feared by batsmen everywhere. In the years between 29 December, 1972 and 18 June, 1983 Lillee and Thommo paired up in twenty-six Test matches, five World Series Cricket Supertests and thirty-one One-Day Internationals. At the zenith of their explosive destruction in England during the summer of 1974-5, they combined to take a total of fifty-seven wickets in the six Tests. There was cause for celebration, indeed genuine relief, for batsmen the world over when their 'reign of terror' ended.

The best of the best, these are the greatest players of the 20th Century playing in the same side. Former Test cricketer and author Ashley Mallett describes the agony and ecstasy in selecting the best Eleven of the past 100 years. From the short list to the final selection, he provides the reason and argument towards achieving the perfectly balanced side. The outcome is a team with great batting depth - nine players who have scored Test Centuries, and specialist batsmen who are courageous, consistent and adaptable. There are one batting all-rounder and two bowling all-rounders. The attack is a potent mix of genuine pace bowling, complemented by two brilliant spinners- one a leg-spinner, the other an off-spinner. This Eleven would beat any combination - anywhere and at anytime.

Cricket Odyssey is a skilfully executed, lovingly constructed, book: a literary celebration of over a century-and-a-half of cricket. It has narrative and character study blended in a dexterously refined, yet readable form. It not only manages to pervade the essential of the essentials of some of cricket’s greatest players — from Dr W G Grace to Steve Waugh; from Sir Don Bradman, Sachin Tendulkar to Rahul Dravid; from Sir Learie Constantine and Sir Gary Sobers to Jacques Kallis; from Ray Lindwall to Wasim Akram; and, from Clarrie Grimmett to Anil Kumble and Muttiah Muralitharan — but, it also brings to life a classy and effulgent cricketing collage. More than a lively, encapsulated grandeur of individual brilliance, or cricketing chemistry, of each player epitomised in its canvas, Cricket Odyssey explores not only the many-resplendent delights of cricket, but it also delineates a deftly woven work of art — of the game’s scientific foundation, art and grammar, and its players’ phenomenal exploits, acts of courage, grandeur, and ‘shortfall.’ A journey through nostalgia, and a living monument to a living philosophy, it is, in sum, a ‘must-read’ and ‘must-keep’ book for all avid cricket fans across the globe.

Who'd make it into the best England team ever? And you can chose anyone, regardless of when they might have played. Would W.G. Grace be playing alongside Denis Compton and David Gower? Or Kevin Pietersen? The debate could be endless, so who better to make the selection than Geoffrey Boycott, himself one of England's all-time highest scoring Test batsmen and now the game's most forthright, shrewd and iconoclastic commentator. Based on his own fresh analysis amd interpretation of the statistics, Boycs has come up with his own, sometimes surprising Best Eleven of all time. And he's not just cast a critical eye over England's finest either. Every other test-playing nation comes under the spotlight. You may not agree - in fact, you're almost certain not to - but each player has been carefully chosen and the case for his inclusion forcefully argued in what is sure to be the most entertaining, thought-provoking and memorable cricket books of the year from one of the game's most outspoken and enduring characters.

Greg Chappell was the outstanding Australian batsman of his generation. Though he had an appetite for big scores, it was his calm brow and courtly manner that bowlers found just as disheartening. When he followed his brother Ian into the Australian captaincy, his feat of scoring centuries in each innings of his captaincy debut has been unequalled. After retiring he went into coaching, spending some time with South Australia and working as a consultant at Pakistan’s National Cricket Academy. In 2005 he was appointed coach of the Indian national cricket team on a two-year term—a stint that included a stormy public falling out with the captain, Sourav Ganguly. He has been Head Coach of Cricket Australia’s Centre of Excellence in Brisbane and in 2010 Greg Chappell was made Cricket Australia’s first full-time selector and National Talent Manager—a position of unequalled power. In this book Greg Chappell will reflect upon how things have changed since he grew up playing cricket in his backyard with his brothers Ian and Trevor; how Australia’s fortunes have see-sawed over the years; the great teams and the great players; the scandals and the opportunities. He has been a cricketer, captain, commentator and selector—he has seen it all.

Deeply personal, always amusing, YOU ONLY GET ONE INNINGS is the story of thousands of cricket tragics growing up in the Australian suburbs in the 70s and 80s. As a young boy growing up in the 1970s in the suburbs of Adelaide, Barry Nicholls was negotiating the dreadful haircuts and unrequited infatuations of adolescence, while his heroes, Chappell, Lillee and thommo, were creating cricket history against Pommie champions like Boycott and Botham. Like thousands of Aussie kids playing cricket at school, in their backyards or on the beach - Barry wanted to be bat like them, bowl like them and play for Australia. But like many boys who dreamed those dreams, he never quite did. But along the way Barry discovered that in the competing, the striving and just having fun with his family, friends and mates - that cricket really can change your life - even if you don't get to play for Australia. A charming coming-of-age memoir set against the Ashes battles of the 70s and 80s that celebrates the eternal wisdom of cricket.

Debate still rages on about who invented baseball. But one thing is certain...it was alive and fractious in southwestern Ontario in the summer of 1949. It was a remarkable summer. For Charlie Hodge, just finishing his last year of high school, the summer of 1949 begins with great fanfare and excitement. He has made the Galt Terriers’ roster and will be riding the bench with a star-studded team, many of whom had played with the major leagues. When those seasoned pros arrive in town, big things are expected, and they don’t disappoint. There is the towering home run that Goody Rosen hits into the Grand River; the frozen baseball scheme that backfires; and the busload of promotional cooking oil hijacked just before game time. It all comes down to Game 7 in the Terriers’ semi-final series with the Brantford Red Sox, when a convicted gambler, playing centre field that night, makes one of the most controversial plays ever seen at Dickson Park. Based on exhaustive research and extensive interviews, David Menary recreates that post-war season in Terrier Town through the eyes of Charlie Hodge. While Charlie is a fictional character, the other players are not. This is a story that will resonate with young and old alike, baseball fans or not. This is a team that became a vital part of the town, and the town an elemental part of the team. This is a time rapidly fading from memory — a summer of myths and legends. This is a story of how life could be in the small southwestern town of Galt. And all this is our heritage.
