In the thirty-third thrilling escapade in Piers Anthony's rousing Xanth fantasy series, an adventurous arachnid named Jumper must assume human form to save the enchanted realm from a cosmic peril. A cataclysmic battle between two all-powerful Demons has severed a mystical connection that joins Xanth to our own world. The key to restoring it is hidden within a cryptic prophecy that Jumper discovers when he is suddenly transformed from spider to man. As he sets out to discern the prophecy's meaning, he gathers about him a half dozen alluring damsels who do their best to help him solve the riddle while vying for his attentions. But a seductive siren and her demonic consort have determined to use their wiles to lure Jumper and his lovely companions away from their urgent mission. In a madcap adventure that is alternately harrowing and hilarious, they soon discover that danger, deception, and even true love may be found where they least expect it. In Jumper Cable, master storyteller Piers Anthony spins a wild and witty web of wonder that is sure to captivate fans of fantastic adventure everywhere!

“Alf,” I said, “What is it you want me to do then?” He replied simply, “To spread the word of something big that’s going to happen to the sheeple of Planet Earth if they don’t buck up their ideas.” In his new book Paranoid Sheep, author Lord M. A. Fricker continues his rant against the establishment, believing that we’re all influenced to think the way we do. “I reckon it’s time for you sheeple to open your minds to an alternative way of thinking. What if all is not as it seems?” he asks. With the help of “the voice in his head” Alf, the author takes readers on an incredible journey of discovery. Along the way there are sexual encounters with aliens, incredible predictions, amazing conspiracy theories, and the man in the middle trying to make sense of it all. Paranoid Sheep(What if) also looks at what we have learnt (or not learnt) from ancient civilizations, prophecies, war and religion, all wrapped up in a uniquely written book brimming with adult humour, rage, anarchy, and ultimately, hope. Find out why we should start growing our own, hugging trees, ditch our cell phones, and discover why June 15 could be a life-changing annual event. It’s all in this highly anticipated sequel to Programmed Sheep: Do You Control Your Mind or does Somebody Else Control It for You?
This bumper collection of Irish humour covers topics such as Absenteeism and Zoos and everything in between. It would be disappointing should such a large collection not include the best of famous Irish wits such as Oscar Wilde and George Bernard Shaw, but the emphasis is very much on contemporary Irish humour from the likes of Tommy Tiernan, Dylan Moran, Ardal O'Hanlon and Dara O'Briain, to name just a few. Lunatic, iconoclastic and, as Spike Milligan might have put it, involving 'sideways thinking', this is Irish humour at its very best.
