This copiously annotated bibliography documents and examines the whole range of commentary on Strindberg's works and activity in many fields besides the plays for which he is internationally best known. These include his prose fiction and poetry, his work as an historian and natural historian, and his relationship to the other arts, most notably his painting. It is concerned with both lasting works of literary and dramatic criticism, as well as reviews of his books and plays in the theatre, and some more ephemeral material, all of this in several languages. Organised generically and by subject and individual work, the bibliography enables the reader to trace the changing impact of Strindberg and his works in various countries and during different periods. It is thus very much a study in reception as well as a bibliographical record of published material. It traces the developing image of Strindberg and his writing both during his lifetime and in subsequent years, and with frequent cross reference offers a comprehensive overview of a literary and existential project that has rarely been matched for its multifaceted diversity. The bibliography is published in three parts. Volume 1, General Studies (978-0-947623-81-4) and Volume 3, Prose, Poetry, Miscellaneous (978-0-947623-83-8) are also now available. Michael Robinson is Emeritus Professor of Drama and Scandinavian Studies at the University of East Anglia, Norwich.

The Winter King

'No one comes back from the Isle of the Dead. No one!' 'Does it matter?' I asked him. For if all Dumnonia was lost, what did it matter? And Nimue was not dead, I knew that because the scar was pounding on my hand.

From Bernard Cornwell, the international bestselling author and master of historical fiction. In the Dark Ages, a legendary warrior arises to unite a divided land . . . Uther, the High King of Britain, is dead. His only heir is the infant Mordred. Yet each of the country's lesser kings seek to claim the crown for themselves. While they squabble and spoil for war, a host of Saxon armies gather, preparing for invasion. But no one has counted on the fearsome warlord Arthur. Handed power by Merlin and pursuing a doomed romance with the beautiful Guinevere, Arthur knows he will struggle to unite the country - let alone hold back the Saxon enemy at the gates. Yet destiny awaits him . . . The first of Bernard Cornwell's Warlord Chronicles, The Winter King is a brilliant retelling of the Arthurian legend, combining myth, history and thrilling battlefield action. 'Of all the books I have written these are my favourites' Bernard Cornwell 'Spellbinding realism' The Times

GOOD AND EVIL... She defeated a demon and imprisoned a mad druid in a crystal serpent's egg. She changed the course of history, and never doubted which side she was on. Now the rules have changed. In the shifting landscapes Celts call the otherworld, friends may be foes, good deeds yield evil results, and childhood fantasies become adult nightmares. Braving pillaging Vikings on the Loire, battling a crazy sorcerer in the Broceliande forest, and confronting the nine Gallicenae, druidesses who rule the Isle of the Dead, the only friend Pierrette can trust may be the Evil one himself, the Eater of Gods. And now the last battle looms, a battle in which Pierrette, she who would save the Past and the Future, can trust no one and nothing, not even the devil she thought she knew. At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management). [The Sacred Pool, first of Pierrette's adventures is] "Immensely readable and elegantly simple in execution . . . this vivid reimagining of Western humanity's turbid adolescence engages, enchants and enthralls." ¾Publishers Weekly [starred review] "[Simply Human is] highly entertaining and full of action ... a divertingly strange future, one that should appeal equally to fans of sf and fantasy adventure." ¾Locus

A pirate lord after his runaway bride. A Highland lass who tames the heart of a beastly earl. A shipwreck that leads to the romance of a lifetime. Fall in love with the heroes and heroines of USA Today bestselling author May McGoldrick's Scottish Relic Trilogy, which Library Journal called a "witty and winsome treat," together for the first time in a fabulous, low priced volume. MUCH ADO ABOUT HIGHLANDERS Highland warrior Alexander Macpherson has lost his wife. When he agreed to take Kenna Mackay as his bride to advance his clan’s power in the north, he expected a bit of an adjustment. He didn't expect the sharp-tongued beauty to run away on their wedding night. Kenna Mackay thought she was safe in a priory full of nuns learning the craft of healing, but when she is kidnapped by her own husband, the battle of wits begins anew. But even as passions ignite, a deadly secret from Kenna's past rises to the surface and put their new love in jeopardy. TAMING THE HIGHLANDER Innes Munro has the ability to "read" a person’s past simply by touching them, but her gift comes with a heavy price: her freedom. Forced to stay at desolate Castle Girnigoe, Innes never expects to be drawn to the wounded warrior who haunts its dark passages and challenges her at every turn. Conall Sinclair, the earl of Caithness, carries the scars of battles with the English and the lash marks of their dungeons, but the wounds that fester within give him even greater pain. Isolating himself from his clan and the rest of the world in a tower perched on the wild Scottish coast, Conall is reluctant to let the spirited Innes close to him, however neither can deny the growing passion that ignites with every look, every touch. TEMPEST IN THE HIGHLANDER Miranda MacDonnell is on the run. When she inherited a mysterious relic from her mother, she had no idea the dangers it would bring. Now hunted by a relentless foe who will stop at nothing to find her, she has one choice: stow away on the ship of the notorious privateer, Black Hawk. Rob Hawkins, the half-English privateer known as Black Hawk, has a mission from the Tudor king to find and kill the rogue commander, Sir Ralph Evers. To complete his quest, Hawk must find Miranda, a young woman Evers is pursuing. Caught in a tempest, he is shipwrecked with a "boy" who demonstrates an uncanny ability for saving him. But soon Hawk realizes the "boy" traveling with him is actually Miranda MacDonnell.
