The Derelict William Hope Hodgson "The storm carried us northward for several hundred miles, and when it dropped us finally, we found ourselves in a very bad state. The ship had been strained, and had taken some three feet of water through her seams; the maintopmast had been sprung, in addition to the jibboom and foret'gallantmast, two of our boats had gone, as also one of the pigstys, with three fine pigs, these latter having been washed overboard but some half-hour before the wind began to ease, which it did very quickly, though a very ugly sea ran for some hours after...

Elephants breaking down walls, a hyena sharing a fire with the night guard to keep warm, hippos fighting, armless monkeys bringing their young to be admired by the author--this book is a kaleidoscope of wild animals, strange and often eccentric tourists, the trails and tribulations of running a poorly equipped lodge in a remote wilderness area, and the laughter and tears of working with and living alongside staff from a different background and culture. Written with great compassion, this is Lesley Cripps Thomson's story of how she forges a bond with staff who do not want to be told what to do or how to do it by a woman and the hardships they have to live with, including illness and poverty. She tells of the good times they have and how, in a crisis, they all pull together. ============================ In the Derelict House, Lesley Cripps Thomson vividly conveys the fun and the frustrations of living and working in the African bush. Enlivened by the many characters who pepper the pages, her book also paints a colourful picture of the wildlife scene. for those who aspire to sample wild Africa for the first time, and for those who have already fallen under its spell, this is an excellent read. for myself, it has been a pleasure to encounter a book so evocative of the Africa I have come to love. Douglas Willis, FRGS, FRSGS (Scotland) Running a lodge in the African bush means not only exotic wildlife but also eccentric human life. A vivid and engaging read. William Saunderson-Meyer - Sunday Times, South Africa "I loved the Derelict House ... it brought back fond memories of my own time in the Luangwa Valley and the characters and wildlife really are true to form" Julie Croucher, 'Travel with Jules' UK

"What if your superpower was your ruin? All Alpheus ever wanted was to help those in need. When he was 8 years old he discovered the ability to fly. But stuck in a fundamental religious commune which had been isolated in a coastal forest for over 100 years, he dared not let his secret be known. When catastrophe struck, he blamed himself and his sinful ability. Fleeing the wreckage of his old life, he vowed to never fly again. Now an anonymous adult in the modern world, Alpheus tries to help people as a social worker. But his comfortable complacency is disrupted when a menace from his past tracks him down. Old mysteries are revealed. New imperatives are born. Unimaginable evil exists, and the only way to stop it is to unearth the trauma connected to his power"--

Harry Sullivan had a saying for the homeless people that wandered the streets of his neighborhood: "Lazy good-for-nothing derelicts!" Now this formerly middle-class man is faced with the unthinkable - becoming one of them. Brought up in the rough-and-tumble South Boston neighborhoods of the 1940s, Harry's a decorated Korean War hero and a tough-as-nails former Golden Gloves fighter whose title fight became a legend in local boxing circles. He's worked hard at the Good Life bread company for many years. His retirement was supposed to be a wonderful time to spend with his wife and enjoy all life had to offer. Then tragedy strikes, sending Harry into a tailspin - and a lifestyle he never even contemplated. A sprawling, eye opening novel of life's fickle ups and downs, THE DERELICT examines one man's remarkable journey as he struggles both physically and spiritually following a most unexpected role reversal. Utterly alone and adrift, Harry's only lifeline is his frequent conversations at his wife's grave - and with the street preacher who shows him how to survive without a home. But when a freak stroke of luck changes things yet again, Harry forgets the lessons he learned on the streets and returns to his selfish ways. Now he must face something even tougher than surviving on the streets. Honest, moving and at times comical, THE DERELICT is a reminder of what's really important in life and the constant unknown that lurks around the corner for all of us.
