1. Harry Potter & the Goblet of Fire Lithograph
This collectible lithograph would be an awesome gift for any fan of the Harry Potter series. A picture of the dark and imposing Hogwarts castle, surrounded by mountains, graces the front of the cover. On the back is the Hogwarts crest with the mountains in the background.
2. Monkshood, the Killer Plant
There are many varieties of monkshood. This queen of poisons is also called wolfsbane, aconite, leopard’s bane, women’s bane, devil’s helmet, blue rocket, and friar’s cap. Her beauty is astounding, but her flowers of white, cream, yellow, blue, or purple are deadly.
3. Nebulaphobia, the Fear of Fog
Have you ever been caught out in fog so thick you could not see your hand in front of your face? Or maybe you were driving and the fog was so thick you could barely see where you were going. There are some people who would be terrified by either situation.
4. Hy Conrad – Characters
What was his inspiration for this book? How does he choose the names of his characters? How much research did he have to do? When will the next Abel Adventures Mystery book be published?
5. Contronyms from Dike to Flog
When you dust the blades on your ceiling fan, are you removing the fine particles of dirt or adding them? When you have a fast horse, does it move quickly or is it stuck to one spot? You state that something is finished. Is it completed, or is it destroyed?
6. Hy Conrad – Advice for Writers
When did he first have the desire to write? Does he ever become bored with what he writes? What opportunities have come his way because of his writing? What advice does he have for writers who are striving to be published?
7. Serial Killers – a Review
There are some really sick people in this world. Yeah, I knew that before, but after reading Serial Killers by RJ Parker, I have discovered just how truly sick some are. Four separate books are included in this one volume.
8. Rally 'Round the Corpse - a Review
What do I expect in a murder mystery? I grew up reading Agatha Christie books and I became really, really good at figuring out the identity of the guilty one. So I expect a captivating mystery, at least one devious murder, interesting characters, plot twists, and lots of red herrings.
9. A Farrow of Piglets
Is there a drove of pigs in your story? Do you have room for a farrow of piglets? Or maybe your story has been invaded by a sounder of wild boars.
10. Confusing Words from Dissidence to Doyenne
Would you call a female deer a do, doe, or dough? When you take a nap, do you does, doughs, or doze? When you finish a project, are you done or dun with it? Is the senior male member of a group a doyen or doyenne?
