The original title of the book: The Last Witchfinder

Jennet is the daughter of the Witchfinder of Mercia and East Anglia. Whilst her father roams the countryside with her brother Dunstan in search of heretics, Jennet is left behind to be schooled by her aunt Isobel in the New Philosophy principally expounded by Isaac Newton. But her aunt's style of scientific enquiry soon attracts the attention of the witchfinders. To save her aunt, Jennet travels to Cambridge to seek the help of Newton himself. On the way she meets Dr Barnaby Cavendish and his 'Museum of Wondrous Prodigies' including the Bird-Child of Bath, The Lyme Bay Fish Boy and the Sussex Rat Baby. What they haven't bargained on is being hoodwinked by Newton's great rival Robert Hooke. Isobel is burned at the stake but in her dying moments, begs Jennet to devote her life to overturning the Parliamentary Witchcraft Act.This is a huge rollercoaster of a novel as Jennet travels to America and witnesses the Salem witch trials: is abducted by Indians: begins an affair with Benjamin Franklin: travels back to England and finally meets the real Newton: is shipwrecked: then ends up back in America where her brother is now the Witchfinder Royal. In a great final showdown between old superstition and new science, Jennet decides to have herself accused of witchcraft in order to disprove its existence. What makes this novel even more unusual is that Jennet's story is narrated by a book, the Principia Matematica, making this a hugely original, witty, clever and utterly unique novel. It's very tongue in cheek, as the book engages in a battle of paper-eating insects with the Malleus Maleficarum, the key 'witchfinding' text.

Published in 1962, this short story collection foreshadows two other iconic 1960s works - by the Mozambican Honwana and the Angolan Vieira - in the way it invites its readers to consider a range of ethical issues at a watershed moment during the Salazar dictatorship.Published in 1962, this short story collection foreshadows two other iconic 1960s works - by the Mozambican Honwana and the Angolan Vieira - in the way it invites its readers to consider a range of ethical issues at a watershed moment during the Salazar dictatorship.

This book may have occasional imperfections such as missing or blurred pages, poor pictures, errant marks, etc.As such, insulated national discourses are no longer an adequate framework to address such issues: economic and cultural globalisation processes exert dual and reciprocal influences, restructuring societies and identities from within and without.We do, however, repair the vast majority of imperfections successfully: any imperfections that remain are intentionally left to preserve the state of such historical works.More than 25 of the hits from one of the greatest heavy metal bands in the world.With mostly hitherto unpublished technical plans as well as numerous historical and new colour photographs of his most famous projects, Boris Velikowsky's contribution to Russian avant-garde architecture is appreciated for the first time in book form.While Kaname struggles with his own growing attraction to Kaoruko, he suspects that Kaoruko's volatile powers will bring unwanted attention from the Black Witches Coven.
