'Of Roads and Rainbows' is a treat for lovers of Australia and an excellent introduction to the country for lovers of surprises. Think again if you thought you knew how exotic Australian wildlife can be, or how beautiful and unique its natural wonders and natural history could be. Only Australia ranks as both one of the world's oldest and youngest countries. Nowhere else offers the rich combination of a unique and ancient natural history that came to be revealed to the wider world through its colonial history, woven of human and humorous stories that are every bit as curious and quizzical. When retirement beckoned, Noel and Jean Smart packed their Jeep and drove off to explore their homeland. Two years and twenty-seven thousand kilometres later, Noel is ready to share their discoveries and describe those natural wonders and wildlife, and always through the unique colour, culture and comedy provided by Australia's colonial history.

Cyclocross is no longer cycling's hidden gem. Its rapid growth in the USA and UK means this intense and dramatic sport is exploding into the mainstream. With a season running from September to February, cyclocross is cycling's only purely winter discipline, demanding a combination of athleticism, supreme technical skill and ruthless tactics for the muddy conditions. In the sport's heartland of Belgium, major races attract crowds of thousands and have a carnival atmosphere fuelled by heavy drinking, ringing cowbells and pumping airhorns. Many top riders have enthusiastic fanclubs and are national celebrities – one even had his own reality TV show. On race day, Belgian and Dutch television coverage is akin to a major football match in the UK, stretching for hours with prerace interviews, pundits and behind-the-scenes films. In Rainbows in the Mud, Paul Maunder spends a season soaking up the sport's rich culture and history, and mixing with the obsessive fans, celebrity riders, and old-fashioned patriarchs of the sport. Following the riders – novices, veterans, American, British – as they slog their way through the season, he captures the spirit of this flamboyant cult sport, and paints a picture so vibrant you can almost feel the mud under your feet and taste the beer, mulled wine and frites.

Four time Hugo Award winner Vernor Vinge has taken readers to the depths of space and into the far future in his bestselling novels A Fire Upon the Deep and A Deepness in the Sky. Now, he has written a science-fiction thriller set in a place and time as exciting and strange as any far-future world: San Diego, California, 2025. Robert Gu is a recovering Alzheimer's patient. The world that he remembers was much as we know it today. Now, as he regains his faculties through a cure developed during the years of his near-fatal decline, he discovers that the world has changed and so has his place in it. He was a world-renowned poet. Now he is seventy-five years old, though by a medical miracle he looks much younger, and he's starting over, for the first time unsure of his poetic gifts. Living with his son's family, he has no choice but to learn how to cope with a new information age in which the virtual and the real are a seamless continuum, layers of reality built on digital views seen by a single person or millions, depending on your choice. But the consensus reality of the digital world is available only if, like his thirteen-year-old granddaughter Miri, you know how to wear your wireless access—through nodes designed into smart clothes—and to see the digital context—through smart contact lenses. With knowledge comes risk. When Robert begins to re-train at Fairmont High, learning with other older people what is second nature to Miri and other teens at school, he unwittingly becomes part of a wide-ranging conspiracy to use technology as a tool for world domination. In a world where every computer chip has Homeland Security built-in, this conspiracy is something that baffles even the most sophisticated security analysts, including Robert's son and daughter-in law, two top people in the U.S. military. And even Miri, in her attempts to protect her grandfather, may be entangled in the plot. As Robert becomes more deeply involved in conspiracy, he is shocked to learn of a radical change planned for the UCSD Geisel Library; all the books there, and worldwide, would cease to physically exist. He and his fellow re-trainees feel compelled to join protests against the change. With forces around the world converging on San Diego, both the conspiracy and the protest climax in a spectacular moment as unique and satisfying as it is unexpected. This is science fiction at its very best, by a master storyteller at his peak. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Death brings to life the once spooky and desolate household of Ebenezer. As Melita dwells on the irony of life, she takes readers through a poignant journey of hope, faith, fear and love. Melita's recollections of life in the quaint village of Merapara in Kerala; her first meeting with her cousins and the adventures that follow; the harsh realities of life; and the sights, sounds and smells of a time gone by are so vivid and forthright that one feels an instant connection with every character, which grows deeper and stronger through the passage of time. Melita also recounts the special bond she once shared with Manna, her cousin, hoping it has the strength to fight all odds and work a miracle. When K walks into her life, Melita sets out on a journey of self-discovery and realisation. Fighting the turmoil and conflicts within, she gradually understands that life throws more questions than answers. Can she make peace with herself and accept life as it is, warts and all? Can she weave a colourful rainbow that defies the many challenges? Myriad emotions, feelings and hues are beautifully woven together in this wonderful tapestry of love and longing. Lucid... poignant... Some of the pages hold the subtle fragrance of things thought lost, strange yet familiar, making one cling on to the feelings of being unsettled. -Dr. Swetha Antony, University of Delhi.

Sunshine and Rainbowsis a history of the development of homosexuality as an Australian subculture. Proceeding chronologically from the 1820s through to the vibrant alternative culture that exists in 2000, Sunshine and Rainbowsargues that the manner in which gay and lesbian identity has been constructed in Queensland is typical of Australia generally. Beginning with isolated acts suppressed by criminal law and medical opinion, a homosexual identity developed, which by the mid-nineteenth century was based on male appropriation of space.Sunshine and Rainbowsdiscusses the different roles of gay men and lesbians in the subculture, arguing that by the end of the twentieth century a transition had occurred to a fully-developed alternative culture.

Many years ago, I had a vision full of dreams of putting a positive drop in the ocean of life to help create a better world for all of us in generations to come. I saw with a broken mirror, with a world full of tears, full of hurts and frustration with deepening pain, which cried endlessly for a red cross band-aid and cure. It was many years later that my vision was written on paper in the form of poetry. My many trials and suffering, along with many running off the road of light, with dead ends did not go in vain. I hope my many poems of love, Jesus, Mary, peace, and the poor will help to inspire each reader to open their eyes and minds wider to Jesus endless love and dreamers with authentic peace, with their hearts open to realize the suffering and the huge rocky mountain that the poor and unwanted, lost and forgotten, climb that mountain courageously day after day. You may be passing by a war hero in disguise many have despairing stories to tell. Jesus dwells in the suffering poor. He loves his forgotten lamb in the same way that he loves us. Please give them dignity and respect for they struggle for the good life with the little that they have with hopeful courage, and a trail of brokenness and pain, with hanging on to the Lord's strength and his many crosses to turn their darkness into God's light. So be a brother or sister to them and lend them a hand when you can, their destiny starts and ends with you.

In 2005, after 20 years of working for an Australian State Government Schools Teaching Service, author Kevin Munro suffered a severe bipolar nervous breakdown. To keep up his literary skills, he began to write. In Netted Rainbows, Munro “documents” his illness through poems he wrote between 2005 and 2009 in Sydney, Australia. His record is filled with the “pain” of bipolar disorder, complete with the mania and depression he suffered and overcame. He challenges readers to identify the different stages of his illness through reading his works, and believes they could come away being a “lay” professional.
