Somehow the gravitocompass went berserk by one pilot of a cargo starship and brought it to Earth, where it instantly turned out to be a stranger. This gave a very similar to octopus creature a chance to get acquainted with not the most ordinary representatives of the Earth´s fauna and astral: young earthling Semen Sankovsky with his comrades, his wife and the spirit of the leader of an ancient unknown tribe. The reason for further - amusing and not very much - misunderstandings was his highly original defensive reaction to external stimuli. And where are the fellow countrymen? Yes, even by reason? Yes, despite the fact that anyone endowed with intellect and born on our planet has the right to be considered a countryman, isn´t it? Cover picture: Alexey Slipchenko

Long before there were creative-writing workshops and degrees, how did aspiring writers learn to write? By reading the work of their predecessors and contemporaries, says Francine Prose. In Reading Like a Writer, Prose invites you to sit by her side and take a guided tour of the tools and the tricks of the masters. She reads the work of the very best writers—Dostoyevsky, Flaubert, Kafka, Austen, Dickens, Woolf, Chekhov—and discovers why their work has endured. She takes pleasure in the long and magnificent sentences of Philip Roth and the breathtaking paragraphs of Isaac Babel; she is deeply moved by the brilliant characterization in George Eliot´s Middlemarch. She looks to John Le Carré for a lesson in how to advance plot through dialogue, to Flannery O´Connor for the cunning use of the telling detail, and to James Joyce and Katherine Mansfield for clever examples of how to employ gesture to create character. She cautions readers to slow down and pay attention to words, the raw material out of which literature is crafted. Written with passion, humor, and wisdom, Reading Like a Writer will inspire readers to return to literature with a fresh eye and an eager heart.

Events in Rwanda in 1994 mark a landmark in the history of modern genocide. Up to one million people were killed in a planned public and political campaign. In the face of indisputable evidence, the UN Security Council failed miserably in its response. In this classic of investigative journalism, Linda Melvern tells the compelling story of what really happened, revealing both the scale, speed and intensity of the unfolding genocide, as well as exposing the governments and individuals who could have prevented what was happening, if they had chosen to act. The book also tells the unrecognised heroism of those who stayed on during the genocide ? from volunteer peacekeepers to courageous NGO workers. Twenty-five years on from one of the darkest episodes in modern history, A People Betrayed is a shocking indictment of how Rwanda was ignored then and how today it is remembered in the West.
