<p><b>The official playscript of the original West End production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.</b></p><p>It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn't much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband, and father of three school-age children.</p><p>While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.</p><p>The playscript for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child was originally released as a 'special rehearsal edition' alongside the opening of Jack Thorne's play in London's West End in summer 2016. Based on an original story by J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany and Jack Thorne, the play opened to rapturous reviews from theatregoers and critics alike, while the official playscript became an immediate global bestseller.</p><p>This definitive and final playscript updates the 'special rehearsal edition' with the conclusive and final dialogue from the play, which has subtly changed since its rehearsals, as well as a conversation piece between director John Tiffany and writer Jack Thorne, who share stories and insights about reading playscripts.

LOVERS IN THE FOG<br />A novel by Hamlet Sarkissian<br /><br />Set in the late 80s, LOVERS IN THE FOG opens with ex-human rights attorney Luke Forsyth embarking on a solo drive up the east coast of the United States to rendezvous with the love of his life, a mystery woman who went missing a decade before. As his obsessive journey unfolds, the foggy road provides Luke with an empty canvas upon which he paints his memories, desires and deepest fears. His old love affair, his young family, his efforts to extricate dissidents from Gorbachev’s Russia, his run-ins with the KGB are vividly recounted and parsed in order to filter truth from reality. A life-changing revelation awaits Luke at the end of his trip.<br />"A new, fresh and unique voice, Hamlet Sarkissian explores the human condition in the best traditions of modern existentialist literature, allowing his charismatic characters to shine through with heroism, despite their tragic circumstances. Love, politics, morality, collectivism and individualism are all fair game in this timely and profound novel.”<br /> <br />- American TV actor, producer and director, David Boreanaz, known for his roles of vampire-turned-private investigator “Angel” on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, FBI Special Agent “Seeley Booth” on the comedy-drama series Bones and “Jason Hayes” in the military drama series, SEAL Team.<br /> <br />“LOVERS IN THE FOG is a terrific journey! Seemingly ripped from the headlines, it keeps you on the edge of your seat. And with its visual style, the book is aching to be a movie. Bravo, Mr. Sarkissian!”<br /> <br />- Cult indie filmmaker Larry Cohen, subject of the recent documentary King Cohen, creator of “The Invaders” and “Branded” TV series, director of ground-breaking films Bone, Black Caesar, It’s Alive and The Stuff, screenwriter for major studio films like Phone Booth and Cellular.<br />

Sherlock Holmes is a fictional detective of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, who first appeared in publication in 1887. He is the creation of Scottish born author and physician Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. A brilliant London-based detective, Holmes is famous for his intellectual prowess, and is renowned for his skillful use of deductive reasoning (somewhat mistakenly - see inductive reasoning) and astute observation to solve difficult cases. He is arguably the most famous fictional detective ever created, and is one of the best known and most universally recognizable literary characters in any genre.<br /><br />Conan Doyle wrote four novels and fifty-six short stories that featured Holmes. All but four stories were narrated by Holmes' friend and biographer, Dr. John H. Watson, two having been narrated by Holmes himself, and two others written in the third person. The first two stories, short novels, appeared in Beeton's Christmas Annual for 1887 and Lippincott's Monthly Magazine in 1890. The character grew tremendously in popularity with the beginning of the first series of short stories in The Strand Magazine in 1891; further series of short stories and two serialized novels appeared almost right up to Conan Doyle's death in 1930. The stories cover a period from around 1878 up to 1903, with a final case in 1914.<br /><br />This collection contains all the 60 official and the 6 unofficial Sherlock Holmes stories - in total 66 works (the biggest and greatest Sherlock Holmes collection in the eBook world).<br /><br />• A Study in Scarlet<br />• The Sign of the Four<br />• The Hound of the Baskervilles<br />• The Valley of Fear Short Story Collections:<br />• The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes<br />• The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes<br />• The Return of Sherlock Holmes<br />• His Last Bow<br />• The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes

Meg is the eldest and on the brink of love. Then there’s tomboy Jo who longs to be a writer. Sweet-natured Beth always puts others first, and finally there’s Amy, the youngest and most precocious. Together they are the March sisters. Even though money is short, times are tough and their father is away at war, their infectious sense of fun sweeps everyone up in their adventures — including Laurie, the boy next door. And through sisterly squabbles, their happy times and sad ones too, the sisters discover that growing up is sometimes very hard to do.<br />Based on Louisa May Alcott’s childhood, this lively portrait of nineteenth-century family life possesses a lasting vitality that has endeared it to generations of readers.<br /><br />A wonderful story...
