Half a Crown
In Jo Walton’s alternative history, Britain and Nazi Germany signed the Farthing Treaty in 1941. Now, it is 1960 and a summit meeting in London offers an unlikely pair – the commander of Britain’s infamous secret police and a debutante – a chance to end Fascist rule. Book three of the Small Change trilogy.
Flappers and Philosophers
Published in 1920 following the success of the novel This Side of Paradise, Fitzgerald's first collection of short stories includes many of his finest. 'The Offshore Pirate', 'Bernice Bobs Her Hair', 'The Ice Palace' and 'Benediction' present his archetypal Jazz Age heroines, the beautiful and wilful young women who became a hallmark of his fiction. Part of the Cambridge Edition series, this volume includes notes and details of the stories' composition and publication history.
