In this classic study of the supernatural , Lyall Watson challenges scientific orthodoxy by applying new criteria to the investigation of the unknown. Probing the "soft edges" of science, Watson dispenses with the distinction between the natural and the supernatural and focuses on Supernature; those phenomena that are not wholly paranormal, but which are not classified as natural occurrences according to traditional science. With both scientific objectivity and a wide-eyed sense of wonder at the mysteries of the universe, this fascinating and open-minded study proves beyond doubt that science is stranger than the supernatural.

Sherlock Holmes, the world’s “only unofficial consulting detective”, was first introduced to readers in A Study in Scarlet published by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in 1887.

The illustrations recreate, through custom designed Lego models, the composition of the black and white drawings by Sidney Paget that accompanied the original...
The deliciously funny confessions of a debutante which became an international bestseller Fresh from convent school, Charlotte Bingham finds herself propelled from the private tortures of dancing class to the very public horrors of The Season. Though desperately on the hunt for a Superman to call her own, the freezing country house ballroom circuit seems to yield nothing but an inexhaustible crop of charmless, chinless young types known as Weeds. But Charlotte's adventures are more than sufficiently diverting: whether she's bouffing up her hair to try and pass herself off as a beatnik, fighting off unwelcome advances in the back of a cab, hurtling down the Champs Elysées on the back of a Vespa, or accidentally sticking her eyelids together with eyelash glue while at modelling school, her experiments in coming-of-age are never short of intrigue - and disaster. Published in 1963 when she was just nineteen, Bingham's sparkling memoir of her trials and travails became an international bestseller. From its pages emerges a deeply lovable and relentlessly optimistic young woman, looking for love in all the wrong places.
