Terry Pratchett's writing celebrates the possibilities opened up by inventiveness and imagination. It constructs an ethical stance that values informed and self-aware choices, knowledge of the world in which one makes those choices, the importance of play and humor in crafting a compassionate worldview, and acts of continuous self-examination and creation. This collection of essays uses inventiveness and creation as a thematic core to combine normally disparate themes, such as science fiction studies, the effect of collaborative writing and shared authorship, steampunk aesthetics, productive modes of "ownership," intertextuality, neomedievalism and colonialism, adaptations into other media, linguistics and rhetorics, and coming of age as an act of free will.

This book is a must read for anyone seeking the assurance and peace of mind that their salvation, once received, is forever and can never be lost. It is also a must read for those who want to defend this precious doctrine and pass along to fellow believers the truth that will set them free. No longer will it be necessary to walk on egg shells, trying to keep what only God can keep. This book will enlighten the understanding of its readers to see the truth that their new position in Christ is absolutely perfect before God, while their practice is flawed. It will also reveal that God's work of justification declares them righteous forever, while His work of sanctification makes them righteous in their behavior. A number of other theological distinctions will be made to help the readers understand the permanency of their salvation, such as: the differences between salvation faith and service faith, innate knowledge and head knowledge, sinner and saint, the believer's relationship with God and his fellowship with God, judicial forgiveness and parental forgiveness, and a distinction between the words faith of Christ and faith in Christ. This book will also reveal the warfare that goes on in the minds of believers, preventing them from going for broke and trusting in Christ and Christ alone for their salvation. To trust in Christ plus one's own ability to maintain a certain level of faith is not to trust in Christ alone do complete what He has started but to trust in Christ plus human effort. The truth of once saved always saved will motivate believers to serve God, not out of a fear of losing their salvation, but out of gratitude that they are kept by God's power to serve others and can never be lost.

H. J. Massingham (1888-1952) was renowned as a prolific writer on matters relating to the British countryside. In this volume, which was originally published in 1939, Massingham provides a rich and detailed description of traditional agricultural husbandry and the rural crafts inseparable from it. Written in consultation with various practitioners of these crafts, the text reveals a subtle interrelationship between man and nature based on centuries-old processes. Rather than taking a nostalgic approach to these processes, Massingham regards them as the sensible alternative to the 'scientific agriculture' of mechanised farming. Numerous illustrations are included alongside the descriptions of various crafts. This is a fascinating volume that will be of value to anyone with an interest in British agriculture, traditional crafts, and the history of land use.

Seamlessly blending the personal and the political, Grounded tells the story of a hot-rod F16 fighter pilot whose unexpected pregnancy ends her career in the sky. Repurposed to flying remote-controlled drones in the Middle East from an air-conditioned trailer near Vegas, the Pilot struggles through surreal twelve-hour shifts far from the battlefield, hunting terrorists by day and being a wife and mother by night. A tour de force play for one actress, Grounded flies from the heights of lyricism to the shallows of workaday existence, targeting our assumptions about war, family, and the power of storytelling. Grounded won the 2012 Smith Prize; a 2013 Scotsman Fringe First Award; Best Production of 2013 Award from the Off-West End Theatre Awards; was named a London Top Ten Play in both the Evening Standard and The Guardian; 2016 Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Solo Show and the 2015 Teatro Netto Festival Grand Prize.
