Case Closed by Gosho AoyamaFrom $14.75
High-school mystery fan Shin'ichi Kudo is actually one of his high school's best minds, but he gets his reality checks from his childhood friend and almost-girlfriend Ran Mori. Nothing can keep Shin'ichi from a case, until he follows a suspicious man into a park, is accosted from behind and fed a strange chemical which renders him unconscious. When he awakens, he has been transformed into a puny grade schooler! The hapless boy finds a home with eccentric inventor Professor Agasa, who searches for a cure for his condition. While he's waiting to be restored to his adolescence, Shin'ichi takes on the name Conan Edogawa (borrowed from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and the last name of the famous Japanese mystery writer Edogawa Ranpo). As Conan, he plays the part of the little brother that Ran never had, and helps her incompetent private-detective father solve all of the gruesome murder mysteries that come their way.
Barrie James Matthew by Sir J. M. BarrieFrom $5.95
'COME AWAY, COME AWAY!'That's Peter Pan's irresistible call to the Darling children-and to generations of readers who have travelled with him to Neverland and all the secret places in a child's heart. With a magic and emotional appeal unmatched by any other story, Barrie's Peter Pan speaks directly to childhood's dreams and desires with an imaginative genius that evokes both laughter and tears. Peter, the boy who wouldn't grow up; Nana, the Darling children's nurse and pet Newfoundland; deliciously dreadful Captain Hook, who is stalked by a crocodile with a clock in his stomach; and Tinker Bell, 'quite a common fairy,' who swears like a sailor and its murderously jealous-these characters of startling originality are rich, funny, mischievously insightful, and a joy to read about again and again. The result is a masterpiece of literature that has been working its timeless wonderment on us since it first appeared.With an Afterword by Alison Lurie Illustrated by Sergio Martinez

Husbands And Other Lovers is the gripping story of the two Agnew brothers - and the women who love them. James Agnew, a brilliant City lawyer, is married to Susannah. They have the perfect life - on the surface. A Surrey house, two successful careers and a lifestyle to be envied.

Tabitha, his ex-wife, must fight for her freedom - and her daughter. Jasmine, his ex-girlfriend, faces losing everything that is precious to her. And what of Natasha, his beautiful but vulnerable new girlfriend? Will she fall under his spell to become just another victim...?About the Author Jane Elizabeth Varley studied at Oxford and went on to qualify as a barrister.

High Lord by Trudi CanavanFrom $17.9
the Black Magic trilogy Book three. Life should have been easier for Sonea, now that Regin ignored her and the rest of the novices treated her with wary respect, but she cannot forget what she witnessed in Akkarin's underground room, or his warning that Kyralia's ancient enemy is watching the Guild closely. the last few years have been good for Cery. He has a respected position among the thieves, and connections in high and low places. When an exotic stranger offers to help him with a secret task, Cery knows he should refuse, but life would be boring without the occasional risk... As Akkarin reveals more, Sonea does not know what to believe or what she fears most - that the truth is as terrifying as he claims or that he is trying to make her his accomplice in black magic.
The Call of Cthulhu by H. P. LovecraftFrom $21.25
Credited with inventing the modern horror tradition, H.P. Lovecraft remade the genre in the early twentieth century, discarding ghosts and witches and instead envisaging mankind at the mercy of a chaotic and malevolent universe.This selection of stories ranges from early tales of nightmares and insanity such as 'The Outsider' and 'Rats in the Walls', through the grotesquely comic 'Herbert West - Reanimator' and 'The Hound', to the extra-terrestrial terror of 'The Call of Cthulhu', which fuses traditional supernaturalism with science fiction. Including the definitive corrected texts, this colection reveals the development of Lovecraft's mesmerizing narrative style and establishes him as a hugely influential - and visionary - American writer.
Possession by A. S. ByattFrom $16.95
Hailed by The New York Times Book Review as "a gifted observer, able to discern the exact details that bring whole worlds into being" and "a storyteller who could keep a sultan on the edge of his throne for a thousand and one nights," A. S. Byatt writes some of the most engaging and skillful novels of our time. Time magazine calls her "a novelist of dazzling inventiveness."Possession, for which Byatt won England's prestigious Booker Prize, was praised by critics on both sides of the Atlantic when it was first published in 1990. "On academic rivalry and obsession, Byatt is delicious. On the nature of possession--the lover by the beloved, the biographer by his subject--she is profound," said The Sunday Times (London). TheNew Yorker dubbed it "more fun to read than The Name of the Rose . . . Its prankish verve [and] monstrous richness of detail [make for] a one-woman variety show of literary styles and types." The novel traces a pair of young academics--Roland Michell and Maud Bailey--as they uncover a clandestine love affair between two long-dead Victorian poets. Interwoven in a mesmerizing pastiche are love letters and fairytales, extracts from biographies and scholarly accounts, creating a sensuous and utterly delightful novel of ideas and passions.
