Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: At last, _Up Through an Empty House of Stars_ brings together the best of the never before collected SF reviews and articles that helped build David Langford's towering reputation since 1980. Complementing the review columns collected in _The Complete Critical Assembly_ and the knockabout essays and squibs in _The Silence of the Langford_, this volume's 100 glittering selections mix serious critical insight with the inimitable Langford wit. In 2002 David Langford won his sixteenth Hugo award as Best Fan Writer, for critical and humorous commentary on SF. In the same year his occasionally scandalous SF newsletter _Ansible_ won its fifth Hugo. Langford also received the 2001 Hugo for best short story, and the 2002 Skylark Award. Here he shines a unique light on classics like Ernest Bramah, G.K. Chesterton, Robert Heinlein and Jack Vance, and analyses major SF -- and major clunkers, and minor eccentrics -- of the 1980s, 1990s and early 2000s, continuing to the latest by such current stars as Gene Wolfe and China Mi, ville. Plus witty asides on crime fiction and its SF links, gleeful examination of writing so bad it's almost good, and (even at his most serious) turns of phrase to make you laugh aloud

Book excerpt: When a nativity display on public property is torched by a former US Senator, the media spotlight falls on the forgotten small town of Leonard, Texas, and the new pastor of its only church—Adam Wells. Emboldened by the prospect of leading his tiny congregation in a nationally-televised, first amendment debate that he considers to be a “fight for the heart and soul of America,” Pastor Wells determines not to let anything or anyone, including his wife and his rebellious sixteen-year old daughter, stand in his way. But when an old high school friend unexpectedly shows up in their small town and a past secret is revealed, Pastor Wells’ constitutional crusade collides with an even greater fight—the fight for the heart and soul of his marriage, his daughter, and, even his own life. In this modern-day story of betrayal, forgiveness, and finally redemption, Adam Wells discovers, for the first time, the meaning of the story he’s been preaching all his life...and his desperate daughter understands what really is beyond the farthest star. Award-winning authors, Bodie and Brock Thoene, have written an emotional and authentic drama based on a screenplay by Andrew Librizzi and now a major motion picture.

She is far from the commotion and uneasiness in the heart of the city. It isn't that the Spaniards' arrival has no effect on her. She has seen the Spaniards. She had heard the rumors. When she sees a horse for the first time the magnificent creature fascinates her. She can hardly believe it when such an animal comes to be in her possession. She tries to do everything she can to conceal it, even when she has to break the rules. The horse means so much to Eleuia, because she can always have a special friend. But hiding the animal proves to be harder than she thought. When the family discovers that she has the horse, Eleuia has to promise to let her horse go--a promise she knows she will break. After that secrecy is even more important. But is it possible to keep the secret forever? When the warriors begin the long battle, Eleuia discovers that it might not be so easy to conceal her beautiful horse--and herself.

Book excerpt: Rock You (book 1) Working for a cranky hermit in an isolated house sounds like Ruby’s idea of heaven – but her boss isn't what she expects. Tex is a fugitive from the rock and roll world after a tragedy halted his career. The two of them live together but avoid each other until Tex screws up, forcing them to move into closer quarters. The sanctuary they build is enough for Ruby, but the outside world encroaches. She thinks their fledgling love can’t shine brighter than the rock dream but can Ruby bear to let Tex go? Cry For You (book 2) A million girls would swap places with me in a heartbeat. They weep for Tex and maul each other to get closer to him. The way they obsessed over him and put him on pedestal scared the hell out of me. I don't want our relationship made public. Every single fan would question my place beside me. Hell, I question it myself. Tex is a star and I'm nobody. Even worse, there's one fan scarier than all the rest. She'd go to any lengths to get Tex. Tex promised to protect me but she watches my every move, just waiting for her chance to destroy me. Be With You (book 3) So finally our house has been rebuilt and Tex is on track with his career. But where does that leave me? Tex thinks we can build a future together but I worry that I'm too damaged to be with him. It doesn't help that the man who almost destroyed me in the past comes back into my life. How can Tex help me when he has cracks appearing in his own life? He thinks he’s dealt with his sister’s death but he’s in denial. Is the love we share enough to overcome the ghosts of our pasts?

Book excerpt: Take Blue Fire's journey with them as they go from hot college band to world-famous rock stars! Book 1: You Really Got Me As a sizzling-hot lead singer, Slater Vaughn has no trouble raising heart rates—but his band’s been flat-lining for years. When Emmie, his bandmate’s sister, crashes with them in exchange for some free management, her industry know-how lands them a spot in the biggest music festival in Texas. But it isn’t just her business acumen that catches Slater’s attention. Emmie is sexy and warm, and—for the first time in his life—he wants more. But as irresistible as Slater is, Emmie is done with musicians. In her experience, a man can’t be a rock star and someone to trust with your heart—but Slater is determined to show her he’s both. Book 2: I Want You To Want Me A slow burn, enemies-to-lovers, rock star romance about two people who’re bad at love but want to be good for each other. Even more than wanting to be a rock star, Derek Valencia wants respect in the music industry. But right when his band hits the big-time, the guys spiral out of control, and the record label threatens to pull its support. So, when their manager hires a minder to keep them in line, Derek’s pride takes a hit. Still, he can’t refuse the help, not when he’s this close to getting everything he’s worked so hard for. And he can’t help the blazing attraction for the babysitter he’s so intent on disliking. Book 3: Take Me Home Tonight A slow burn, friends to lovers, rock star romance about a passionate woman who brings a wounded musician back to life. Calix Bourbon might seem like a free spirit, but that’s all a front. In reality he’s just trying to keep his fractured family together while working as a session musician. When Blue Fire hires him to replace their keyboardist, Calix is determined to make the most of the opportunity—but he can’t help being distracted by the band’s sexy personal chef. Book 4: More Than A Feeling A second chance, small town, rock star romance bursting with off-the-charts-chemistry and heat. "Absolutely loved it! I finished this book last night, but I'm still smiling this morning. It's that good!" Now that he's a rock star, Cooper Hood can't think of a single reason to ever go back to the town that painted him with the same brush as his addict mother. But right in the middle of his band’s national tour he gets a call to come home: his mom’s got a whopper of a secret to reveal. Daisy Charbonneau never thought she'd see her high school crush again. Especially after his band hit the big time. But when the talent she hired for her resort’s annual Huckleberry Festival bails on her, she’s desperate to find a replacement act--and her rock star crush is just the answer she's looking for. As they work together, a crush deepens into so much more, but who falls in love in two weeks? Especially when Cooper’s never coming back to town, and Daisy’s never going to leave it.

Book excerpt: Rabindhranath Tagore reshaped Bengali literature and music as well as Indian art with Contextual Modernism in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Author of the "profoundly sensitive, fresh and beautiful" poetry of Gitanjali, he became in 1913 the first non-European and the first lyricist to win the Nobel Prize in Literature. Referred to as "the Bard of Bengal", Tagore was known by sobriquets: Gurudev, Kobiguru, Biswakobi. Tagore's poetic songs were viewed as spiritual and mercurial; however, his "elegant prose and magical poetry" remain largely unknown outside Bengal. Poetry 1. Ama and Vinayaka 2. Baul Songs 3.
