Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.

Selected pieces of the student literary magazine, Forum, have been assembled into this compilation - timeless stories ranging from such topics as racism to multiculturalism; from living with AIDS to dying from AIDS; from quantum physics to existentialism; from Esperanto to terrorism; from the respect for history to the fears of growing up; and from living with obsessive-compulsive disorder to dying from cancer. Readers will be hard-pressed to determine whether a story was written in 1986 or 2006. Therein lies the beauty of Lavender & Old Ladies: its content has a degree of timelessness.

Good detectives come in all manner of guises... Meet Siiri and Irma, best friends and the queen bees of Sunset Grove, a retirement community for those still young at heart. With a combined age of nearly 180, Siiri and Irma are still just as inquisitive and witty as when they first met decades ago. But when their comfortable world is upturned by a suspicious death at Sunset Grove, Siiri and Irma are shocked into doing something about it. Determined to find out exactly what happened and why, they begin their own private investigations and form The Lavender Ladies Detective Agency. The trouble is, beneath Sunset Grove's calm facade, there is more going on than meets the eye, and Siiri and Irma soon discover far more than they bargained for . . .

THE HERO In the year —— there dwelt on Hampstead Heath a small thin gentleman of fifty-eight, gentle disposition, and independent means, whose wits had become somewhat addled from reading the writings and speeches of public men. The castle which, like every Englishman, he inhabited was embedded in lilac bushes and laburnums, and was attached to another castle, embedded, in deference to our national dislike of uniformity, in acacias and laurustinus. Our gentleman, whose name was John Lavender, had until the days of the Great War passed one of those curious existences are sometimes to be met with, in doing harm to nobody. He had been brought up to the Bar, but like most barristers had never practised, and had spent his time among animals and the wisdom of the past. At the period in which this record opens he owned a young female sheep-dog called Blink, with beautiful eyes obscured by hair; and was attended to by a thin and energetic housekeeper, in his estimation above all weakness, whose name was Marian Petty, and by her husband, his chauffeur, whose name was Joe.

The beauty of flowers is well known, inspiring creative minds from Botticelli to Beatrix Potter. But they've also played a key part in forming the past, and may shape our future. Roses and thistles have served as symbols of monarchs, dynasties and nations. We wear poppies to remember the First World War, but it was the elderflower that treated its wounded soldiers. A rose might mend a broken heart, and sunflowers may just save our planet. At once enchanting and intriguing, The Brief Life of Flowers reveals how even the most ordinary of flowers have extraordinary stories to tell.

The Death of the Old Lady is a woman's pledge to come to the bottom of her employer's sudden and unexpected death. Anna Petersen lives and works with Nora Simps in a small Cornish village. In spite of the age gap, Nora and Anna are close friends. When Anna finds Nora dead in the kitchen, she turns into a sleuth; during her investigation, she is joined by the local artist David, the police inspector Ryan, and her sister, Stella. By and by the secrets behind Nora Simps's life and death are uncovered. Also her own and her sister's life change drastically as the story unfolds and takes us from Cornwall to the Lake District and briefly to Germany. Things and people are not always what they seem, and dreams can be shattered in the blink of an eye; however, they can also be reconstructed through faith and love, and sometimes we need to change to meet our true purpose.
