Beacons

by Lawrence Norfolk Siân Dafydd Melangell Gregory Norminton Nick Hayes Holly Howitt Tom Bullough Toby Litt Adam Marek Rodge Glass Alasdair Gray David Constantine Mike Robinson Jay Griffiths Adam Thorpe Jem Poster Clare Dudman Liz Jensen A. L. Kennedy James Miller Maria Mccann Janice Galloway Joanne Harris

Beacons throws down the gauntlet, challenging well-known authors to imagine our worst and best possible futures and, in imagining them, to help us change things for the better. From Joanne Harris' powerful vision of a near future where 'outside' has become a thing of history to Nick Hayes' beautifully illustrated tale of the bond between man and nature, this is where dystopian satire meets speculative and historical fiction, metaphorical flights of fancy, quiet tragedy, and farcical comedy, crafting stories that are as various as our possible futures. Provocative, encouraging, and deeply moving, Beacons represents the best of British writing - and collectively illuminates the immediacy of the ecological problems at hand. All author royalties will go to the Stop Climate Chaos Coalition, the UK's largest group of people dedicated to action on climate change and limiting its impact on the world's poorest people.

Camp Green Clover, Texas: Best friends Kitzi and Beth met at camp at age eight--and still return every year for a weekend of beading and bunk beds. This year, however, a big-name contractor will be at the retreat, incognito, looking for new talent. Now, formerly happy campers are fighting tooth-and-nail, hiding work from each other, even stealing. And then renowned beader May Feather actually ends up dead... There are almost as many suspects at Green Clover as there are beads in Kitzi's bag. And everyone must stay at camp until the police have interviewed them--unless they want to trade in their friendship bracelets for handcuffs. Kitzi has a few ideas and will follow her hunches--police or no police. But the elusive killer appears determined to string everyone along...

The Beaded Moccasins

by Lynda Durrant

On the morning of her twelfth birthday, Mary Campbell gets angry with her mother and storms out of the cabin-never to return. As she picks wild strawberries and plans her apology, Mary is captured by Delaware Indians and plunged into a life that is fearsome, strenuous, and utterly unlike the one she knows, beginning with the journey on foot from Pennsylvania to the Delawares' new home in Ohio Territory. As the idea of escape becomes less feasible and less urgent, Mary finds herself adapting to the routines, traditions, and beliefs of her captors, and discovers within herself reserves of strength she hadn't known were hers. The life of the real Mary Campbell, taken by Delawares in 1759, is the basis for this enthralling, historically detailed adventure, and for the perceptive portrait of a young woman finding her place in a culture vastly different from her own.
