Oh, Whistle and I'll Come to You My Lad remains one of the most read and truly unnerving ghost stories ever written and it, along with many others, was recited by James himself (as was the tradition every Christmas) to the pupils of The King‘s College Choir School. Hopefully by a crackling fire, a few flickering candles, and not too much wind! These tales, above all, are spine tingling and thoroughly ripping yarns. So sit back by the light of your flickering candle and enjoy. Your disposition may never be the same again.

“With its suitably unsettling music - the viola is ideal for creating a spooky atmosphere - [the stories] succeed in James’s aim of ‘causing readers to feel pleasantly uncomfortable’.”

According to Robyn Waters, it’s a myth that trends can only be spotted early by überhip Bohemian types who are ever so much cooler than everyone else.
She ought to know. As Target’s former VP of Trend, Design, and Product Development, Waters helped a dowdy regional discount chain become a national fashion destination. Today she consults for many different companies to help them stay ahead of the curve.
The Trendmaster’s Guide features her favorite tips and examples for understanding and anticipating trends. Every letter from A to Z offers an insight to help readers navigate the unknown and prepare for whatever their costomers want next. It’s a quick read that packs a lot of insight between "A is for antennae" and "Z is for Zen."
Anyone can use the tools in The Trendmaster’s Guide to become more aware of the world around them. Even if you weren’t born with a trendspotting bone in your body, you don’t have to be a follower forever. No one these days can afford to just be catching on when others are already moving on.
Waters stresses that recognizing and reacting to trends is a learned skill, and it can be acquired without spending time in the streets of Milan or the high schools of Orange County. If you’ve ever witnessed a trend unfolding and said to yourself, "I should have seen this coming," there’s hope. You too can become a trendmaster.
Don't be fooled by this book's diminutive size and brief length. The content is rock-solid and thought-provoking. Waters' suggestions and recommendations are eminently practical. This book is also written with a style which has Snap! Crackle! and Pop! Usually an A to Z organizing principle is merely a gimmick. Not so in this instance. Waters offers a series of brief but stimulating discussions of 26 subjects which range from A (Antennae by which to "tune in to the little things, the trivial nuances, and the irrelevant data which everyone else misses") to Z (Zen which embraces opposites, paradoxes, contradictions, etc. while celebrating duality and embraces polarity). Waters urges her reader to learn to practice "the Zen of trend."
I highly recommend this book, especially to decision-makers in small-to-midsize companies which have limited resources and thus must somehow do more and do it better, do it sooner, and with less. I agree with Warren Buffett who said something to the effect that "price is what you charge but value is what others think it's worth." This is especially true of current and prospective customers. Mastering the use of various tools which Waters provides will help each reader to become a Trendmaster. Because trends evolve in sometimes unexpected directions, the same tools and skills can then be used to make necessary adjustments of the given strategies and tactics.

REVIEWS of Michael Hague’s Twinkle Twinkle Little Star:
From PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
Intricately detailed, Victorian-style illustrations highlight this version of the beloved nursery tune, originally published in 1806. (The song, including its lesser-known later verses, comprises the book's entire text... In his characteristic style, which recalls the delicate magic of Arthur Rackham, Hague renders the nursery rhyme as an enchanted dream in which winged fairies guide two sleepy children through a sky shimmering with stars. Piloting a tiny boat on the celestial seas, the boy and girl pass a smiling crescent moon, mermaids with flowing hair and benevolent gnomes before they are guided safely back to bed… a coffee-table book for children sure to please the artist's many fans. All ages.
The oft-recited, well-loved nursery rhyme, originally published in England in 1806, appears in its entirety here, with exquisite, imaginative illustrations designed to conduct little ones to dreamland.
