While visiting her doctor one day, a bored housewife is asked if she would like to sell a proportion of her time—a fraction of her every waking hour—to anonymous investors. The discovery of mysterious reels of film in a Hollywood basement allows viewers to watch classic films, starring decrepit, 100-year-old versions of their once-young stars. An avid player of the Sims computer game realizes too late that her boyfriend's family isn't quite as it appears. In this collection of short stories, award-winning author Frank Cottrell Boyce, in his first work of adult fiction, performs feat after feat of high-wire, narrative acrobats, with works that move effortlessly between surrealism, metaphysical drama, science fiction, and contemporary pop culture. Drawing on influences as disparate as Stanislaw Lem, Nikolai Gogol, and Roald Dahl, Boyce lures readers into a hall of mirrors, where each character is an illusion and every plot line is turned inside-out.

A delightful selection of articles by the ever-popular A. A. Milne, many of which haven't been in print for decades. Introduced by the prize-winning children's author Frank Cottrell Boyce, this volume brings Milne's brilliant non-fiction back to the spotlight. A. A. Milne was a successful writer long before the classic Winnie-the-Pooh stories made him famous. Milne had a talent for regularly turning out a thousand whimsical words on lost hats and umbrellas, golf, married life, cheap cigars, and any amount of life’s little difficulties. This anthology, spanning four decades of Milne’s life, includes his fiercely argued writings on pacifism. Happy Half-Hours features the very best of A. A. Milne in one delightful volume. “Milne’s gift to write amusingly about the most trivial things is a kind of blessing. The kind that can put you back together again when all else fails.” —Frank Cottrell-Boyce, from his introduction

Essays by storyteller Anne Pellowski, author Beverley Naidoo, and academic Marianne Martens offer a variety of perspectives on international youth literature. This latest installment in the series covers books published from 2010-2014 and includes English-language imports as well as translations of children’s and young adult literature first published outside of the United States.
