Wie weit würdest du gehen ... für die, die du liebst? Adrian J Walker hat mit ›Am Ende aller Zeiten‹ einen postapokalyptischen Roman geschrieben, in dem ein ganz normaler Familienvater vor die größte Herausforderung seines Lebens gestellt wird. Edgar Hill ist Mitte dreißig, und er hat sein Leben gründlich satt. Unzufrieden mit sich und seinem Alltag in Schottland als Angestellter, Familienvater und Eigenheimbesitzer, fragt er sich vor allem eins: Hat das alles irgendwann einmal ein Ende? Er ahnt nicht, dass sich die Katastrophe bereits anbahnt. Als das Ende kommt, kommt es von oben: Ein dramatischer Asteroidenschauer verwüstet die Britischen Inseln. Das Chaos ist gigantisch, die Katastrophe total. Ganze Städte werden ausgelöscht. Straßen, das Internet, die Zivilisation selbst gehören plötzlich der Vergangenheit an. England liegt in Schutt und Asche. Ist dies der Weltuntergang? Edgar und seine Familie werden während der Evakuierung voneinander getrennt, und ihm bleibt nur eine Wahl: Will er Frau und Kinder jemals wiedersehen, muss er 500 Meilen weit laufen, durch ein zerstörtes Land und über die verbrannte Erde, von Edinburgh nach Cornwall. Zusammen mit einigen wenigen Gefährten begibt sich Edgar Hill auf einen Ultra-Marathon durch ein sterbendes Land. Doch sein Weg ist gefährlich: Im postapokalyptischen England kämpft jeder gegen jeden ums blanke Überleben.

In 1925 Harold Ross hired Katharine Sergeant Angell as a manuscript reader for The New Yorker. Within months she became the magazine’s first fiction editor, discovering and championing the work of Vladimir Nabokov, John Updike, James Thurber, Marianne Moore, and her husband-to-be, E. B. White, among others. After years of cultivating fiction, White set her sights on a new genre: garden writing. On March 1, 1958, The New Yorker ran a column entitled “Onward and Upward in the Garden,” a critical review of garden catalogs, in which White extolled the writings of “seedmen and nurserymen,” those unsung authors who produced her “favorite reading matter.” Thirteen more columns followed, exploring the history and literature of gardens, flower arranging, herbalists, and developments in gardening. Two years after her death in 1977, E. B. White collected and published the series, with a fond introduction. The result is this sharp-eyed appreciation of the green world of growing things, of the aesthetic pleasures of gardens and garden writing, and of the dreams that gardens inspire.

Table of Contents Introduction Introduction to Succulents The General Cultivation of Succulents and Cacti Temperature Air and Light Watering Soil Planting Your Succulents Growth from leaves Growing Your Plants through Cuttings Repotting and replanting Growing succulents through offsets Saving Your Cacti from Pests and Diseases Aphids Mealy bugs Thrips Red spiders Conclusion Author Bio Publisher Introduction The moment you hear the word “cactus,” you immediately visualize an arid desert, with the poor lonesome cowboy riding away into the sunset on his trusty horse, singing “I am far away from home,” with a buzzard eyeing him greedily, and a cactus somewhere in the background, looming over him. If you have seen this in one spaghetti western, you have seen it in all… But cacti and succulents are just not prickly pears, and Opuntias not to be touched by Mowgli, while he is singing along with Baloo unless he wants a Paw full of spines and thorns. All over the world, people have finally woken up to the potential of cactus and succulent plants as indoor as well as outdoor beautifiers of surroundings, especially when they are planning to plant ornamental plants, which have adapted themselves down the centuries to every sort of condition, and they can survive. This book is for those people, who have decided to know more about cactuses and succulents. Man is an instinctive collector of things, from orchids to butterflies. Once he found that all over the world, he could get more than 500,000 different varieties of succulents and cacti, he decided to add these plants to his collection repertoire. That is the reason why botanists are so fascinated with the lifestyle of these living objects, so that they can see the different natural development and changes which take place with the passing of time during the growth cycle of these particular plants.
