The Erstwhile brings readers back to the singular world and mind of B. Catling, continuing the groundbreaking storytelling of his hit The Vorrh. In London and Germany, strange beings are reanimating themselves. They are the Erstwhile, the angels that failed to protect the Tree of Knowledge, and their reawakening will have major consequences. In Africa, the colonial town of Essenwald has fallen into disarray because the timber workforce has disappeared into the Vorrh. Now a team of specialists are dispatched to find them. Led by Ishmael, the former cyclops, they enter the forest, but the Vorrh will not give them back so easily. To make matters worse, an ancient guardian of the forest has plans for Ishmael and his crew. Meanwhile a child of mixed race has been found abandoned in a remote cottage. Her origins are unknown, but she has powers beyond her own understanding. Conflict is coming, as the old and new, human and inhuman are set on a collision course. Once again blending the real and the imagined, The Erstwhile brings historical figures such as William Blake and places such as the Bedlam Asylum, as well as ingenious creations such as The Kin (a family of robots) together to create unforgettable novel of births and burials, excavations and disappearances.

The Vorrh is a vast unmapped and very mysterious jungle in Africa. No-one comes out of it in one piece. Survivors report strange, mind-bending phenomena and horrific monsters. It is rumoured that the Garden of Eden still exists somewhere in the middle of it. In The Erstwhile it transpires that some angels have escaped Eden and the Vorrh and are living in hiding in London, some in disguise as lunatics in Bedlam. It's also revealed that William Blake, a character in these novels, is interacting with these angels. Good and evil angels and humans, including William Blake, are heading towards a final, Miltonic apocalyptic battle for the soul of humanity. The Erstwhile is the second book in the Vorrh trilogy.

Built as the Wabash Railroad's "Chicago Extension" and an integral part of the shortest railroad between Detroit and Chicago, the Fourth District through Northwest Ohio and Northern Indiana has a colorful history. It was also the first Wabash District dieselized (1950) and home of the last mixed train in Indiana (1962). In addition to an illustrated, researched history, dating back to 1891, Railroading on the Wabash Fourth District tells the story in the words of railroaders that worked the line and folks who remember it. This 320 page hardcover book includes hundreds of photographs, maps, illustrations (some color), diagrams, timetables, track charts, a grade profile, color section, end notes, bibliography and index. As a bonus, the postscript chapter provides an up-date on what happened to the railroad after the 1964 Wabash lease to Norfolk & Western. This includes operations and preservation efforts into the Norfolk Southern era. Railroading on the Wabash Fourth District comes just in time to mark the one hundred twentieth anniversary of the official opening of this line in 1893.

"Torday is a singular American writer with a big heart and a real love for the world. He has the rare gift for writing dynamic action scenes while being genuinely funny." —George Saunders Bluegrass musician, former journalist and editor, and now PhD in English, Mark Brumfeld has arrived at his thirties with significant debt and no steady prospects. His girlfriend Cassie—a punk bassist in an all-female band, who fled her Midwestern childhood for a new identity—finds work at a “new media” company. When Cassie refuses his marriage proposal, Mark leaves New York and returns to the basement of his childhood home in the Baltimore suburbs. Desperate and humiliated, Mark begins to post a series of online video monologues that critique Baby Boomers and their powerful hold on the job market. But as his videos go viral, and while Cassie starts to build her career, Mark loses control of what he began—with consequences that ensnare them in a matter of national security. Told through the perspectives of Mark, Cassie, and Mark’s mother, Julia, a child of the '60s whose life is more conventional than she ever imagined, Boomer1 is timely, suspenseful, and in every line alert to the siren song of endless opportunity that beckons and beguiles all of us.

The Age of Magic has long since ended, but now something unexpected happened. The creatures of magic, both good and evil, have started to awaken. Although it had been prophesied, it had not been foretold that the awakening would begin with a gopher doing what gophers do best: invading a garden - the garden of an ex-wizard. And in this garden grew a carrot that contained the last, and therefore greatest, magic of all. It is a magic that respects no size or shape as it leads the gopher through many dangers and ultimately to the center of a maelstrom where good and evil collide. It was no place for a gopher, although for this particular gopher, it was the only place. The fate of the world may depend on it.
