“History is just one damned thing after another” - Arnold Toynbee A madcap new slant on history that seems to be everyone's cup of tea... Behind the seemingly innocuous façade of St Mary's, a different kind of historical research is taking place. They don't do 'time-travel' - they 'investigate major historical events in contemporary time'. Maintaining the appearance of harmless eccentrics is not always within their power - especially given their propensity for causing loud explosions when things get too quiet. Meet the disaster-magnets of St Mary's Institute of Historical Research as they ricochet around History. Their aim is to observe and document - to try and find the answers to many of History's unanswered questions...and not to die in the process. But one wrong move and History will fight back - to the death. And, as they soon discover - it's not just History they're fighting. Follow the catastrophe curve from eleventh-century London to World War I, and from the Cretaceous Period to the destruction of the Great Library at Alexandria. For wherever Historians go, chaos is sure to follow in their wake ...

Die englische Bestseller-Autorin Jodi Taylor legt mit „Draußen wartet die Liebe“ einen warmherzigen Frauen-Roman vor, voller poetischer Bilder und britischem Witz. Ihre Heldin Jenny entwickelt sich in dieser charmanten Liebes-Geschichte vom schüchternen Entlein zum selbstbewussten Schwan, von einem Mädchen ohne Freunde zur glücklich verliebten Frau – eine moderne Aschenputtel-Geschichte, anrührend, liebevoll und originell. Wenn man 28 Jahre alt ist und schrecklich schüchtern, furchtbar stottert und von Onkel und Tante quasi vor der Welt versteckt wird, dann braucht es eine gehörige Portion Mut, um das Leben endlich in die eigenen Hände zu nehmen. Doch unterstützt von Thomas, dem wohl zauberhaftesten imaginären Freund der Welt, und von Russel, dem chaotischen Maler mit seinem heruntergekommenen britischen Landhaus und dem Herz voller Liebeskummer, greift Jenny schließlich mit beiden Händen nach dem, was ihr neues Leben werden wird – entschlossen, es nie wieder herzugeben. Ein Liebes-Roman so "very british", gefühlvoll und witzig wie ein Hugh-Grant-Film!

And an unfortunately-timed vacation at Thermopylae that leaves the fate of the western world hanging in the balance. Actually, that sounds quite like business as usual for Max and the gang"--

Another rollicking short story from the Chronicles of St Mary’s. Question: What sort of idiot installs his mistress in his wife’s house? Especially when that mistress is Cleopatra VII Thea Philopator, Queen of Egypt and the most notorious woman of her time? Answer: Julius Caesar – poised to become King of Rome. Or as good as. Question: At this potentially sensitive point in your political manoeuvrings, who are the last people you’d want crashing through the door, observing, recording, documenting ...? I think we all know the answer to that one. Roman Holiday – an epic, stand alone tale set in Ancient Rome, 44 BC, featuring, in no particular order: an attempted murder, stampeding bullocks, Cleopatra, Queen of the Nile, a bowl of poisonous snakes, a smallish riot, Julius Caesar, and Mr Markham’s wayward bosoms.
