Robinson in Space is a visual, satirical record of a journey made by a fictional character called Robinson, narrated by his traveling companion and researcher, through the increasingly unknown space of present-day England. Robinson quotes Oscar Wilde: "It is only shallow people who do not judge by appearances. The true mystery of the world is the visible not the invisible. . ." His assumptions about economic failure, especially in manufacturing industry, are gradually challenged by the discovery of an industrial economy that employs few people but still generates most of the wealth of the fifth-largest economy in the world. Robinson in Space incorporates material from the award-winning film of the same name that was released just before the British 1997 General Election. The book juxtaposes the narrative and over 200 intriguing, strange-yet-familiar images from the film to take the reader on a fascinating journey through the landscapes of present-day England.

Black Pudding & Foie Gras is Michelin Star chef Andrew Pern’s multi award-winning culinary autobiography. It strikes the perfect balance between showcasing many of his mouth-watering dishes and the heart-warming account of Andrew’s fascinating life around food at The Star Inn in North Yorkshire. Its much more than a cookery book, it tells Andrew’s story, delves deep into his philosophy on food, introduces you to his local suppliers and provides a captivating and humorous insight into the life of a family that run a successful British food institution. By the time you’ve finished the book, its very clear that these are the thoughts of someone who views food and cooking as a way of life, and not just a job. The recipes come divided into sections that reflect the menu as opposed to the ingredients and give you all the knowledge to recreate some of his best loved dishes. Starters include beer-battered Scarborough Woof - a much loved fish from the North Sea coast; butter-roast Sand Hutton Asparagus and pressed Terrine of Yorkshire Gammon. Main courses feature traditionally garnished North Yorkshire Moors Grouse complete with Streaky Bacon, Bread Sauce and homemade Redcurrant Jelly; Charles Ashbridge’s Gloucester Old Spot Suckling Pig with Black Pudding and Cider and Hartlepool-landed Halibut with steamed marsh Samphire. Also on offer are comfort foods such as steamed Steak and Kidney Pudding with Oysters and braised neck of heather-fed Moorland Mutton with Pearl Barley. Puddings again reflect local produce and combine the more modern with the old traditions - think fresh Lemon Tart, Pimms No1 Jelly and rich dark Chocolate and Orange Tart before moving on to Ampleforth Abbey Apple Tarte Tatin, baked Ginger Parkin and steamed Ale Cake. Andrew reflects that puddings were never a strong point, the household much preferring cheese and the section entitled 'Cheese Counter’ gives such delights as grilled Wensleydale Buck Rarebit with Ox Tongue and Lincolnshire Poacher with 'Felixkirk’ Fennel. Cheese is followed by an enticing chapter entitled 'Drinks Cabinet’ featuring recipes for home-made liqueurs such as Rhubarb Schnapps, Damson Vodka and spiced Cider, before you open up the 'Chef\’s Pantry’ and discover the essential stocks and accompaniments needed to complete the recipes. The book’s luxurious, tactile suede cover with embossed title gives way to 400 beautifully designed pages containing stunning photography, both in black and white and colour, by award winning photographers Antonio Olmos and Sam Bailey. There is nothing glossy about this book, it is just a rich reflection on the life and food of one of Britain’s brightest young chefs.

In December 1926 Agatha Christie became front-page news when she vanished in bizarre circumstances from her home in Berkshire, England. The crime writer was found 11 days later in a hotel in Harrogate,Yorkshire, claiming to be the victim of amnesia. Up till now none of her biographers has come up with conclusive evidence as to what Agatha Christie did in the first 24 hours after she disappeared or whether her memory loss was genuine. Although the notoriety made Agatha Christie famous, she never recovered from the intense press scrutiny, and the private anguish that surrounded the episode ensured that she made no reference to it in her memoirs.
Illustrated with many hitherto unpublished photographs, Jared Cade's riveting book—on which a BBC television documentary has been based—provides all the answers, including startling accounts by the novelist's surviving relatives, that reveal for the first time why she staged the disappearance with the help of a co-conspiritor and how it all went terribly wrong.
