The Unnatural Inquirer from the Author: Simon R. Green. In his most lucrative case yet, private eye John Taylor must find a missing man . . . and potential proof of the Afterlife. John Taylor's latest case is going to make him a lot of money - he'll earn more than a million pounds if he manages to find Pen Donavon, a man who claims to have a DVD with evidence of the afterlife. The editor of The Unnatural Inquirer, the most notorious gossip rag in the Nightside, has made a deal with Donavon for exclusive rights, but now both man and DVD have vanished. Taylor is used to dealing with the unsavoury denziens of the Nightside, but it's becoming clear that someone altogether more powerful - and deadly - is also on the trail. Taylor must act fast if he's to find the missing DVD before his mysterious adversary, or he may well be the next one to disappear. The Unnatural Inquirer is the eighth title in the New York Times bestselling Nightside series by Simon R. Green.

Property Of A Lady Faire from the Author: Simon R. Green. New York Times bestselling author Simon R. Green has another Secret History to reveal... Call me Drood, Eddie Drood. Some know me as Shaman Bond and most simply don’t want to know me at all. For centuries, my family has been keeping the things that lurk on the darker side of existence as far away as possible from humans like you, without you even knowing we’re there. Unfortunately for us, not everybody appreciates what we Droods do. Recently, I personally managed to survive yet another attempt on my life, but the rest of my relatives weren’t so lucky. My parents are missing in action. My grandfather has been murdered. And the future of my family lies in the iron grasp of the Lady Faire, an incredibly seductive, mysterious, and powerful being. She possesses an ancient object that can save them. I have to steal it from her. Easy enough to say, difficult—and very, very dangerous—to do...

Sharper Than A Serpent S Tooth from the Author: Simon R. Green. My name is John Taylor. I’m a PI for hire in the Nightside, the dark and corrupt city within the city of London. Where the sun never shines and where pleasure and horror are always on sale—for the right price. Not a nice place to visit or a nice place to live. So you wouldn’t think I would care that it was about to be destroyed, by none other than my very own long-missing, not-quite-human mom. But I do. I was born here, I live here, and I got friends here. They might not all be acceptable in polite company, but they’re my friends, nonetheless. I know that I’m the only one who can stop her. The trick is, how to do it without fulfilling this prophecy that says whatever action I take, not only is the Nightside doomed, but the rest of the world will soon follow…

The Bride Wore Black Leather from the Author: Simon R. Green. In the secret heart of London, under the cover of endless darkness, is the Nightside. But enter at your own risk. The party animals who live here may be as inhuman as their appetites... My name is John Taylor. The Nightside is my home, and I’ve got a brand new full-time job there (in addition to my private eye work) as Walker—the Voice of the Authorities. I’m also marrying the love of my life, Suzie Shooter, the Nightside’s most fearsome bounty-hunter. But nothing comes easy here. Not life. Not death. And for certain, not happily-ever-after. Before I can say “I do,” I have one more case to solve as a private eye—and my first assignment as Walker. Both jobs would be a lot easier to accomplish if I weren’t on the run, from friends and enemies alike. And if my bride-to-be weren’t out to collect the bounty on my head...

Nightside 8 Bilder Aus Der Anderwelt from the Author: Oliver Graute. Mein Name ist John Taylor. Ich bin Privatdetektiv in der Nightside, der finsteren, kaputten Stadt im Herzen Londons, wo nie die Sonne scheint und Lust und Schrecken immer zu haben sind - wenn man sie bezahlen kann. Der Herausgeber des Unnatural Inquirer - des berĂĽchtigtsten Schundblatts der Nightside - hat mir eine Million Pfund geboten, wenn ich den Mann finde, der behauptet, Beweise fĂĽr das Leben nach dem Tod auf DVD zu haben. Der Inquirer hat dem Kerl viel Geld geboten. Dann ist er mitsamt der DVD verschwunden. Ich weiĂź nicht, ob das Ding echt ist - aber fĂĽr eine Million Pfund bin ich bereit, es zu glauben. Das Problem ist, dass der Scheibe noch jemand auf der Spur ist - jemand mit sehr viel Macht. Wer auch immer es ist, setzt alles daran, die Aufnahme vor mir zu finden ...

The Voynich Manuscript from the Author: Wilfrid Voynich. This ebook is the complete reproduction of the preserved Voynich Manuscript, formatted for high resolution color ebook reader displays. The Voynich manuscript, also known as "the world's most mysterious manuscript", is a work which dates to the early 15th century, possibly from northern Italy. It is named after the book dealer Wilfrid Voynich, who purchased it in 1912. Much of the manuscript resembles herbal manuscripts of the time period, seeming to present illustrations and information about plants and their possible uses for medical purposes. However, most of the plants do not match known species, and the manuscript's script and language remain unknown and unreadable. Possibly some form of encrypted ciphertext, the Voynich manuscript has been studied by many professional and amateur cryptographers, including American and British codebreakers from both World War I and World War II. As yet, it has defied all decipherment attempts, becoming a cause célèbre of historical cryptology. The mystery surrounding it has excited the popular imagination, making the manuscript a subject of both fanciful theories and novels. None of the many speculative solutions proposed over the last hundred years has yet been independently verified. Illustrations: The illustrations of the manuscript shed little light on the precise nature of its text but imply that the book consists of six "sections", with different styles and subject matter. Except for the last section, which contains only text, almost every page contains at least one illustration. Following are the sections and their conventional names: Herbal: Each page displays one plant (sometimes two) and a few paragraphs of text—a format typical of European herbals of the time. Some parts of these drawings are larger and cleaner copies of sketches seen in the "pharmaceutical" section. None of the plants depicted is unambiguously identifiable. Astronomical: Contains circular diagrams, some of them with suns, moons, and stars, suggestive of astronomy or astrology. One series of 12 diagrams depicts conventional symbols for the zodiacal constellations (two fish for Pisces, a bull for Taurus, a hunter with crossbow for Sagittarius, etc.). Each of these has 30 female figures arranged in two or more concentric bands. Most of the females are at least partly naked, and each holds what appears to be a labeled star or is shown with the star attached by what could be a tether or cord of some kind to either arm. The last two pages of this section (Aquarius and Capricornus, roughly January and February) were lost, while Aries and Taurus are split into four paired diagrams with 15 women and 15 stars each. Some of these diagrams are on fold-out pages. Biological: A dense continuous text interspersed with figures, mostly showing small naked women, some wearing crowns, bathing in pools or tubs connected by an elaborate network of pipes, some of them strongly reminiscent of body organs. Cosmological: More circular diagrams, but of an obscure nature. This section also has foldouts; one of them spans six pages and contains a map or diagram, with nine "islands" or "rosettes" connected by "causeways" and containing castles, as well as what may possibly be a volcano. Pharmaceutical: Many labeled drawings of isolated plant parts (roots, leaves, etc.); objects resembling apothecary jars, ranging in style from the mundane to the fantastical; and a few text paragraphs. Recipes: Many short paragraphs, each marked with a flower- or star-like "bullet".
