"Nothing can keep you cruising longer, safer, and on a lower budget than self-sufficiency, and no one knows more about the subject than Lin and Larry Pardey" -- Tom Linskey, Editor, Sail Magazine This book is exactly what the title says, a distillation of lessons the Pardeys have learned from 200,000 miles of sailing on board their own boats and others they have delivered or r aced. Lin and Larry show how they have sailed in comfort and safety without large cash outlays -- on a pay-as-you-earn-as-you-go plan and by simplifying. A sailor who relies on expensive equipment is risking disaster. A sailor's reliance must be on self first and on electronics and mechanics last. For example, do not count on your safety harness to keep you attached to the boat. Do, however, learn the how, why and what of not falling overboard in the first place. Know the proper layout and gear that will eliminate the need to take risks in any weather. How to learn basic sailing and seamanship, to choose a boat and equipment designed for safe, comfortable voyaging; how to learn maintenance and repair, inspection of rigging and equipment, sailing without an engine -- these are what the Pardeys teach. This is an essential book for coastal and offshore sailors and has been revised to add valuablle information for sailoros oof the 21st century.

Lexicon Urthus is an alphabetical dictionary for the complete Urth Cycle by Gene Wolfe: The Shadow of the Torturer; The Claw of the Conciliator; The Sword of the Lictor; The Citadel of the Autarch; the sequel Urth of the New Sun; the novella Empires of Foliage and Flower; the short stories "The Cat," "The Map," and "The Old Woman Whose Rolling Pin Is the Sun"; and Gene Wolfe's own commentaries in The Castle of the Otter. The first edition was nominated for a World Fantasy Award. This second edition, available for the first time in paperback, includes 300 new entries. When the first edition was published, Science Fiction Age said: "Lexicon Urthus makes a perfect gift for any fan of [Wolfe's] work, and from the way his words sell, it appears that there are many deserving readers out there waiting." Gary K. Wolfe, in Locus, said: "A convenient and well researched glossary of names and terms. . . . It provides enough of a gloss on the novels that it almost evokes Wolfe's distant future all by itself. . . . It can provide both a useful reference and a good deal of fun." Donald Keller said, in the New York Review of Science Fiction: "A fruitful product of obsession, this is a thorough . . . dictionary of the Urth Cycle. . . . Andre-Driussi's research has been exhaustive, and he has discovered many fascinating things . . . [it is] head-spinning to confront a myriad of small and large details, some merely interesting, others jawdropping."
