revealed in this the th volume in the Thursday Next series br br Detective Thursday Next has had her fill of her responsibilities as the Bellmanin Jurisfiction enough with Emperor Zhark s pointlessly dramatic entrances outbreaks of slapstick raging across pulp genres and hacking her hair off to fill in for Joan of Arc Packing up her son Friday Thursday returns to Swindon accompanied by none other than the dithering Danish prince Hamlet Caring for both is more than a full time job and Thursday decides it is definitely time to get her husband Landen back if only to babysit Luckily those responsible for Landen s eradication The Goliath Corporation formerly an oppressive multinational conglomerate now an oppressive multinational religion have pledged to right the wrong br br But returning to SpecOps isn t a snap When outlaw fictioneer Yorrick Kaine seeks to get himself elected dictator he whips up a frenzy of anti Danish sentiment and demands mass book burnings The return of Swindon s patron saint bearing divine prophecies could spell the end of the world within five years possibly faster if the laughably terrible Swindon Mallets don t win the Superhoop the most important croquet tournament in the land And if that s not bad enough The Merry Wives of Windsor is becoming entangled with Hamlet Can Thursday find a Shakespeare clone to stop this hostile takeover Can she prevent the world from plunging into war Can she vanquish Kaine before he realizes his dream of absolute power And most important will she ever find reliable child care Find out in this totally

in a Good Book Fforde s redoubtable heroine Thursday Next once again does battle with philistine bibliophobes br br The eagerly anticipated third installment in the bestselling Thursday Next series a genre bending blend of crime fiction fantasy and top drawer literary entertainment br br Thursday Next definitely needs some down time After two rollicking New York Times bestselling adventures through the Western literary canon Britain s Prose Op is literally and literaturally at her wits end not to mention pregnant Her job as Miss Havisham s apprentice at Jurisfiction is as hectic as ever and not just because she has to moderate rage counseling sessions in Wuthering Heights So what could be more welcome than a restful stint in the Character Exchange Program down in the hidden depths of the Well of Lost Plots br br She s supposed to relax while filling in for a sidekick in an unpublished and unpublishable detective procedural socked away below the Great Library in the Well of Lost Plots But a vacation remains elusive In no time Thursday discovers that the Well of Lost Plots is a veritable linguistic free for all where grammasites run rampant plot devices are hawked on the black market and lousy books like the one she has taken up residence in are scrapped for salvage To top it off a murderer is stalking Jurisfiction personnel and nobody is safe least of all Thursday herself br br Fforde has done it again in this absolutely brilliant feat of literary showmanship When it comes to sheer wit literate fantasy and effervescent originality nobody can touch this new tour de Fforde, b From the bestselling author of i Thursday Next i a brilliant new novel about a world where social order and destiny are dictated by the colors you can see b br br Part social satire part romance part revolutionary thriller i Shades of Grey i tells of a battle against overwhelming odds In a society where the ability to see the higher end of the color spectrum denotes a better social standing Eddie Russet belongs to the low level House of Red and can see his own color but no other The sky the grass and everything in between are all just shades of grey and must be colorized by artificial means br br Eddie s world wasn t always like this There s evidence of a never discussed disaster and now many years later technology is poor news sporadic the notion of change abhorrent and nighttime is terrifying no one can see in the dark Everyone abides by a bizarre regime of rules and regulations a system of merits and demerits where punishment can result in permanent expulsion br br Eddie who works for the Color Control Agency might well have lived out his rose tinted life without a hitch But that changes when he becomes smitten with Jane a Grey which is low caste in this color centric world She shows Eddie that all is not well with the world he thinks is just and good Together they engage in dangerous revolutionary talk br br Stunningly imaginative very funny tightly plotted and with sly satirical digs at our own society this novel is for those who loved i Thursday Next i but want to be transported somewhere equally wild only darker a world where the black and white of moral standpoints have been reduced to shades of grey, b Literary sleuth Thursday Next is out to save literature in the fifth installment of Jasper Fforde s wildly popular series b br br Beloved for his prodigious imagination his satirical gifts his literate humor and sheer silliness Jasper Fforde has delighted book lovers since Thursday Next first appeared in i The Eyre Affair i a

With two successful books of the Nursery Crime series under his belt Fforde takes up once again the brilliant adventures of his signature creation in the highly anticipated fifth installment of the Thursday Next series And it s better than ever br br It s been fourteen years since Thursday pegged out at the SuperHoop and Friday is now a difficult sixteen year old However Thursday s got bigger problems Sherlock Holmes is killed at the Reichenbach Falls and his series is stopped in its tracks And before this can be corrected Miss Marple dies suddenly in a car accident bringing her series to a close as well When Thursday receives a death threat clearly intended for her written self she realizes what s going on there is a serial killer on the loose in the Bookworld And that s not all The Goliath Corporation is trying to deregulate book travel Naturally Thursday must travel to the outer limits of acceptable narrative possibilities to triumph against increasing odds br br Packed with word play bizarre and entertaining subplots and old fashioned suspense Thursday s return is sure to be celebrated by Jasper s fanatical fans and the critics who have loved him since the beginning
