THE WRITER’S MAP: An Atlas of Imaginary Lands
Edited by Huw Lewis-Jones, prologue by Philip Pullman
“I wisely started with a map, and made the story fit.” (J. R.R. Tolkien). Twenty-four writers and illustrators describe literature’s most inspired imaginary worlds from Moominvalley to the Marauder’s Map. A spellbinding book with essays by Robert MacFarlane, David Mitchell, Frances Hardinge and many others that will whet your appetite to travel into the pages of some of the world’s greatest stories.
A NATURE POEM FOR EVERY DAY OF THE YEAR
Edited by Jane McMorland Hunter
This anthology contains a poem for every day, accompanying the natural world as it progresses through the seasons. Classics and lesser-known works mingle to give a realistic yet imaginative view of the earth. When not working in the Children’s department or writing the catalogue, Jane can usually be found on the first floor of Hatchards, scouring the poetry section.
A FIELD GUIDE TO THE ENGLISH CLERGY
The Revd Fergus Butler-Gallie

A glance at the Table of Contents shows how much fun it will be to read; the clerics are divided into Eccentrics, Nutters, Bon Viveurs, Prodigal Sons and Rogues. Beautifully written and delightfully amusing.
