EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

From the patristic age until the Gregorian calendar reform of 1582, computus -- the science of time reckoning and art of calendar construction -- was a matter of intense concern. Bede's The Reckoning of Time (De temporum ratione) was the first comprehensive treatise on this subject and the model and reference for all subsequent teaching discussion and criticism of the Christian calendar. It is a systematic exposition of the Julian solar calendar and the Paschal table of Dionysius Exiguus, with their related formulae for calculating dates. But it is more than a technical handbook. Bede sets calendar lore within a broad scientific framework and a coherent Christian concept of time, and incorporates themes as diverse as the theory of tides and the doctrine of the millennium. This translation of the full text of The Reckoning of Time includes an extensive historical introduction and a chapter-by-chapter commentary. It will interest historians of medieval science, theology, and education, Bede scholars and Anglo-Saxonists, liturgists, and Church historians. It will also serve as an accessible introduction to computus itself. Generations of medieval computists nourished their expertise in Bede's orderly presentation; modern scholars in quest of safe passage through this complex terrain can hope for no better guide.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

It was on a beautiful morning in June 1973 that eleven-year-old Miller McAllister’s world fell apart ... That was the weekend that police found the remains of three missing teenage girls on the tiny Scottish island of Fidra. And that was the weekend that Miller’s father, Douglas, was arrested for triple murder. Thirty-two years later, Douglas has died in prison and Miller returns home after decades of self-imposed exile. The McAllister family always maintained Douglas’s innocence – as steadfastly as Miller maintained his guilt. But when Miller is given the legal archive and a letter his father wrote to him just days before his death, suddenly everything looks less clear. To excavate the past and recover the truth, Miller immerses himself in the terrible events of over thirty years ago and his family’s darkest hour. Was nothing quite as it seemed on that fateful June day? Could Douglas McAllister have been innocent after all? And if he didn’t kill the girls ... who did?

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

A reunion in the wilderness between a roughneck father and his estranged son takes a dangerous turn. Billy Underwood hasn't seen his father for most of his life, until the hardscrabble Clay Underwood shows up and whisks the puzzled boy away, bent on taking him on an autumn elk hunt in the Montana wilderness. While wary of his dad and inexperienced in the field, Billy is excited, and quickly responds to Clay's awkward and tough but tender attempt to bond with him through the vehicle of a grand outdoor adventure in the Rocky Mountains. As winter in the high country approaches, father and son bond in quiet, unexpected, and profound ways, while searching for and tracking the elusive elk. Clay doesn't always have the right words to express his feelings, but passes important lessons to his son, from how to track elk and predict the weather, to talking with girls and falling in love. As the prospect of finding elk grows slimmer, the weather takes a sudden turn for the worst. The dangers of being lost and alone in the wilderness quickly become apparent to father and son on a trip that inexorably hurtles toward tragedy.

Wars come and go across the headlines and television screens, but for those who survive them, scarred and scattered, they never end.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

In 1593 the brilliant but controversial young playwright Christopher Marlowe was stabbed to death in a Deptford lodging house. The circumstances were shady, the official account—a violent quarrel over the bill, or "recknynge"—has been long regarded as dubious. Here, in a tour de force of scholarship and ingenuity, Charles Nicholl penetrates four centuries of obscurity to reveal not only a complex and unsettling story of entrapment and betrayal, chimerical plot and sordid felonies, but also a fascinating vision of the underside of the Elizabethan world. "Provides the sheer enjoyment of fiction, and might just be true."—Michael Kenney, Boston Globe "Mr. Nicholl's glittering reconstruction of Marlowe's murder is only one of the many fascinating aspects of this book. Indeed, The Reckoning is equally compelling for its masterly evocation of a vanished world, a world of Elizabethan scholars, poets, con men, alchemists and spies, a world of Machiavellian malice, intrigue and dissent."—Michiko Kakutani, New York Times "The rich substance of the book is his detail, the thick texture of betrayal and evasion which was Marlowe's life."—Thomas Flanagan, Washington Post Book World Winner of the Crime Writer's Gold Dagger Award for Nonfiction Thriller
