- A Day in the Life of the NHL
To some, March 23, 1996, may have just been another Saturday, but for 26 National Hockey League teams, more than 600 professional hockey players, countless men and women behind the scenes and millions of fans, March 23 will be forever remembered as A Day in the Life of: The National Hockey League.
During the heat of pre-playoff competition, 80 of the world's best sports and lifestyle photographers set out to create images depicting the thrill and excitement of the National Hockey League. Beginning at 12 a.m., these renowned photographers sought out the essence and spirit of "the Coolest Game on Earth," not only through the players but also through the fans, officials, families, media, past NHLers and the countless others for whom NHL hockey is more than just a game. They captured the mounting excitement as the ice was prepped, the sticks taped, the microphones checked and as 18 teams prepared both mentally and physically for nine games across North America: They also covered the eight other teams as they traveled, practiced and prepared for their games in days ahead. The resulting visual celebration, with over 300 photographs created both on and off the ice, presents a never-before-seen look at A Day in the Life of: The National Hockey League.
In addition to dramatic photographs of game action, A Day in the Life of: The National Hockey League features candid portraits of some of hockey's current superstars, including Wayne Gretzky, Pavel Bure, Brett Hull and Mario Lemieux.
Also featured are coaches, such as Mike Keenan and Scotty Bowman, former hockey greats such as Denis Potvin and Henri Richard as well as a look into the NHL offices as they prepare for A Day in the Life of: The National Hockey League. These captivating photographs are accompanied by essays written by some of North America's foremost sports writers. With a foreword by NHL commissioner Gary Bettman, A Day in the Life of: The National Hockey League is a tribute to NHL hockey throughout North America, both in words and pictures.
- Hell Bent for Leather: Confessions of a Heavy Metal Addict
A witty and self-deprecating memoir about headbanging your way through growing up.
Seb Hunter was a Heavy Metal fan and he's not proud. This is the story of his misguided 15-year Heavy Metal mission: from the first guitar (his dad's), to the first gig (conquering Winchester with his riffs), on through groupies and girlfriends and too many drugs to a faltering career in London, where outrageous egos, artistic differences and the dreaded arrival of Grunge (and a much needed haircut) kill the Heavy Metal dream.
Along the way Seb imparts the important distinctions between Thrash Metal and Glam and casts his connoisseur's eye over the Metal guitar. You'll learn when to play a drum solo, the correct way to wear Spandex and exactly what to do when you're in the middle of a field at the Donington Festival and you desperately need a piss.
Affectionate, irreverent, and very funny, Hell Bent For Leather is a moving story about growing up, of playing air guitar in your bedroom, of living with parental disapproval and of struggling with the laughter of your friends. It is a memoir about the glorious adolescent obsessions everybody has but no-one will admit to.
Featuring music from: AC/DC, Iron Maiden, Led Zeppelin, Judas Priest, Black Sabbath, Slayer, Kiss, W.A.S.P., Aerosmith The Scorpians and Guns 'n' Roses.
- Traitor's Knot: Alliance of Light: Volume Four
The gripping penultimate instalment of the Alliance of Light.
When half brothers Lysaer and Arithon defeated the Mistwraith its revenge left them cursed to lifelong enmity.
Having conquered the maze and acheived self-redemption, Arithon, Master of Shadow, is now the guest of the formidable sorcerer, Davien the Betrayor. No one knows how his influence will affect Arithon's recovered mage power, or his newly awakened rogue talent for prescience.
Meanwhile Arithon's relentless enemies will stop at nothing to acheive his downfall. The Koriani enchantresses are determined to make him their captive and their pawn. And as the Alliance of Light fanatics regroup after their defeat, the core of their priesthood now stands corrupted by a dark cabal who plot to enslave their leader, Lysaer, and use the Mistwraith's curse as their own private weapon to break the world's order.
The sorcerers of the Fellowship compact are sorely beset and the clans are counting their ruinous losses. Arithon, who holds their last hope of survival, chooses the most dangerous course: heart and mind he dedicates himself to avoiding killing, though allies and enemies muster for war, single-mindedly blind to the consequences.
