Welcome to our new season Summersdale is growing from strength to strength, with even more books than ever to enjoy. This season celebrates all that is great about Britain, from the hugely informative The British Isles: A Trivia Gazetteer to an unusual tour around London by boat in Circle Line, plus A Little Bit of Wit from both Churchill and Shakespeare. Those seeking to be more self-sufficient will love Anna Nicholas’s adventures in A Bull on the Beach, or you can take a pennypinching leaf out of Make Do and Mend and Dig for Victory. Or why not hit your sweet spot learning how to make honey with James Dearsley in From A to Bee? If that sounds too tame, tackle one of the World’s Most Dangerous Jobs from your armchair, or read Geoffrey Abbott’s Execution: A Guide to the Ultimate Penalty. Animal lovers will be amused and delighted with a wide range of gi books about our furry friends: test your knowledge with the Dog and Cat Puzzlers, chuckle at the felons in FBI’s Most Wanted Cats and CIA’s Most Wanted Dogs, and shudder at the World’s Deadliest Animals. If that’s all too much, good old Fred Basset is back with the 2013 Yearbook. We have something for the whole family with our two new gi series: For a…, when you need something special for a fabulous wife, wonderful husband, great friend or fantastic teacher, and Happy Birthday… to celebrate your mum, dad, grandma or granddad’s special day. You’ll be tickled by our Baby Tips for mums, dads and grandparents, before it’s back to school with F in Retakes and our hilarious mini-series: F in Science, English, Geography and History. We end the year with some lovely gi books that will give you something to reflect upon in 2013, with 365 Days of Mindfulness, 365 Days of Romance and 365 Days of Inspiration. We hope you enjoy our new catalogue and want to say THANK YOU to all our booksellers and journalists, agents and reps for your continued support! Feedback: enquiries@summersdale.com.

A Bull on the Beach Enjoying the Good Life in Mallorca Anna Nicholas ISBN: 978 1 84953 263 1 £8.99 129x198mm 320pp Paperback July 2012 Rights and Sales Territories: World

Having settled in a Mallorcan mountain idyll, Anna Nicholas, her husband the Scotsman and their son Ollie want to become as self-sufficient as possible. Anna teams up with organic farmers and smallholders to learn how to tend sheep, make cheese and honey and grind flour while the Scotsman creates havoc with his friend Pep in an attempt at winemaking, and tries to fathom what’s troubling the wriggly inhabitants of his beloved wormery. However, Anna can’t quite shake off her old clients from the PR world, and is persuaded by Greedy George to create a media storm for his new Spanish leather store. The story of how a giant bull ends up on a Barcelona beach is enough to make her delighted to return to Mallorca, where talking to a toad and feeding porridge to her hens seems normal by comparison. Anna Nicholas writes weekly for The Daily Telegraph Expat and Majorca Daily Bulletin, and has contributed to the Financial Times, The Independent, the Evening Standard and Tatler magazine amongst others.

■ Focuses on the hugely popular topics of selfsufficiency and organic farming. ■ Sales of Anna’s previous books are in excess of 20,000 copies. A Lizard in my Luggage (ISBN: 978 1 84024 565 3), Cat on a Hot Tiled Roof (ISBN: 978 1 84024 683 4), Goats from a Small Island (ISBN: 978 1 84024 760 2), and Donkeys on My Doorstep (ISBN: 978 1 84953 038 5). ■ Author website: www.anna-nicholas.com Media opportunities: Extracts/serialisation. Feature angles: long-distance commuting; integrating into rural Spanish life; the real Mallorca that tourists rarely see; Mallorcan customs, culture and eccentrics; juggling work and family life while living abroad; sustainable agriculture and moves towards self-sufficiency.

Circle Line Around London in a Small Boat Steffan Meyric Hughes ISBN: 978 1 84953 293 8 £8.99 129x198mm 320pp Paperback August 2012 Rights and Sales Territories: World

Magic, to a sailor, is harnessing the wind – getting something for nothing – the surprise of a gust, the boon of a side-wind and the trial of a headwind and best of all, the moment when a change in direction means turning away from the head seas and wind and spray in silence and warmth. In 1969, man flew to the moon and sailed around the world solo. In 2009, sailor and Londoner Steffan Meyric Hughes thought he’d try something a little closer to home, becoming the first to sail and row around London in a small boat. Along the way, he discovers the history of the great city’s future and great secrets of the mysterious Thames: wrecks, bombs and intrigue. Circle Line is the story of a unique journey on the forgotten waterways of one of the world’s greatest capitals; an investigation into the way we live today; and a humorous, moving trip down memory lane. Steffan Meyric Hughes is news editor of Classic Boat magazine. He lives in London.

■ A view of the changing faces of Britain’s capital from a little-known angle, told with charm and insight. Media opportunities: Extracts/serialisation. Feature angles: Unusual waterside places to visit in London during the Olympics; In Venice or Bruges, they do it all the time so what’s stopping most Londoners from using the great city’s waterways? New revelations about Old Father Thames’ murky past; Tales of the riverbank: the best and worst places to live beside the Thames; An alternative view of a familiar city: what you can observe from the water that you won’t see on land. Local interest: Numerous areas of London. Photos available. The author is available for interview.

From A to Bee My First Year as a Beginner Beekeeper James Dearsley, The Surrey Beekeeper ISBN: 978 1 84953 272 3 £8.99 129x198mm 224pp Paperback July 2012 Rights and Sales Territories: World

Beekeeping… Oh my… what have I done? I am 30 years old, I have been married for three years and am a new father to a fantastic little boy. Surely there are things that I should be doing at this age which do not involve little yellow and black insects that can hurt you if you are remotely clumsy (which at 6  5, I have an amazing ability to be). James Dearsley’s wife thought he had lost his mind when he announced his intention to become a beekeeper. But like many interested in the self-sufficient lifestyle, he loved gardening and growing vegetables on his allotment and the old romantic in him had idealistic notions of teaching his little boy where honey came from, so he set himself what seemed a reasonable goal: to get, in a year’s time, just one jar of honey. James Dearsley, The Surrey Beekeeper, has written for a variety of publications around the world including The Ecologist and has recorded a DVD, Beekeeping for Beginners, which is now on general release. He lives with his wife and two sons in Surrey. Media opportunities: Extracts/serialisation. Feature angles: The appeal of being self-sufficient in difficult times; A day in the life of a beekeeper; Top tips for keeping bees; A one man crusade to help save bee numbers in the UK. Photos available. The author is available for interview and to write features.

■ James started The Beginner Beekeepers page on Facebook: it is the largest online community of beekeepers. He is also on Twitter (@surreybeekeeper). His site www. surreybeekeeper.co.uk started as a blog, and expanded into a shop and general online resource for beekeepers. ■ The author regularly appears as an expert at events such as the London Honey Show and the Grow Your Own Show, drawing large crowds. He was featured on the Alan Titchmarsh Show in autumn 2011. ■ Other books on beekeeping are functional and practical or quirky miscellanies; this is the first personal, accessible account of the experience of learning. ■ Gives great advice on what to do – and what not to do!

Execution A Guide to the Ultimate Penalty Geoffrey Abbott ISBN: 978 1 84953 255 6 £9.99 129x198mm 416pp Paperback Black and white illustrations September 2012 Sales Territories: World excluding North America Rights available: World excluding North America, Italy and Greece

‘Essential reading for all gore junkies’

SUNDAY EXPRESS

Execution is a gruesomely fascinating account of methods of judicial execution from around the world and through the ages, and includes such hair-raising categories as death by cannibalism, being sewn into an animal’s belly and a thousand cuts. In his own darkly humorous style, Geoffrey Abbott describes the instruments used and their effectiveness, and reveals the macabre origins of familiar phrases such as ‘gone west’ or ‘drawn a blank’, as well as the jargon of the underworld. From the preparation of the victim to the disposal of the body, Execution answers all the questions you are ever likely to ask, and some you would never want to imagine. Geoffrey Abbott served in the RAF in World War Two before becoming a ‘Beefeater’ at the Tower of London. He has written more than twenty-four books on torture and execution and by invitation has written entries on torture and execution for the Encyclopedia Britannica. He lives in the Lake District.

■ The author has unrivalled knowledge of execution, having written twenty-four books on the subject. ■ Combines genuine historical detail and gory descriptions of both ancient and modern forms of execution. ■ Geoff has appeared in numerous TV documentaries as consultant or executioner. Media opportunities: Extracts and serialisation. Feature angles: The history of execution; Methods; A comparison of execution past and present; Grisly accidents. Photos of the author are available. The author is available for features and interviews.

From the teeniest to the fluffiest, this collection of the world’s cutest animals contains lavish photographs, interesting facts and ‘snuggle ratings’ for nature’s most adorable creatures – so sweet you’ll want one of each!

SEAHORSE Hippocampus LIVES Tropical or temperate seas EATS Tiny Ƥsh, plankton, shrimp

Despite being commonly known as the ‘Stallion of the Sea’, this otherworldly creature is a surprisingly poor swimmer, and for that reason it is almost always resting, wrapping its prehensile tail around a stationary object such as a plant frond. The seahorse swims upright, using the pectoral Ƥns behind its ears to steer, and has coronets atop its horsey head which almost gives it a regal appearance. These coronets, however, are as unique as a human Ƥngerprint. It uses its extra-long snout to slurp up plankton and tiny Ƥsh, but because the seahorse doesn’t have teeth or a stomach food passes through its insides incredibly quickly, which means it has to eat constantly to stay alive. This tiny creature has an unusual courtship and mating ritual, and in tropical seas the mating season lasts all year! The female seahorse will deposit her eggs into the male’s pouch where they are fertilised and carried until the babies are ready to emerge two to four weeks later – yes, it’s the male that becomes pregnant and gives birth! The number of babies born in one birth can be as little as Ƥve or as many as 1,500. SNUGGLE RATING: ** (well, they are wet Ƥsh!) CUTEST FEATURE: Their horsey faces and long snouts 72

From tiny terrors to raging beasts, this collection of the world’s deadliest animals contains amazing photographs, gruesome descriptions and shocking stats on reallife monsters of the natural world – proceed with caution!

POLAR BEAR Ursus maritimus LIVES Northern Arctic EATS Seals Cute, cuddly and endangered, its hard not to feel sorry for the poor polar bear – especially when you see it clinging forlornly to a melting iceberg. See one slap the head clean oơ an unwary arctic explorer, however, and you’re likely to feel something else completely – pure, unadulterated fear. The polar bear is so big and strong it can pull a whale clean out of the water, reach down and rip a 12-inch thick seal out of a 4-inch hole, and kill just about any animal with a single blow from its 12-inch paw. Not surprisingly, then, a human who upsets it or just gets in its way doesn’t stand a chance – at least 100 people are mauled to death every year. A bear can be up to 10 feet tall and 1,700 pounds in weight, using its body fat to keep it alive when temperatures plummet in the harshest part of their winter to –45°C. Yet despite its size and strength, this magniƤcent bear is in rapid decline as global warming causes ice caps to shrink, with a devastating impact on its habit and food sources. Experts warn that polar bear numbers will reduce by nearly one quarter in the next 20 years, to just 25,000. TIME YOU'VE GOT LEFT: No time THE LAST THING YOU'LL FEEL: Not much. With so much power in just one paw, a single blow won’t just knock you out, it will knock your head right oơ.

Take a lesson in Advanced Sexonomics with thriy and naughty activities such as: • Full-on FTSE • Strapped for Cash • Double Dip • Credit Munch • Investment Bonking The economy’s going down, and so should you. Get ready to generate a stimulus package of your own with this raunchy and riotous recession romp-fest. Whether you’re up for a little FTSE with your husband, want to double-dip with a stranger, or need some bond tips to reignite your stagflated workplace, this is the book for you. So fight off deflation, trim that unruly hedge fund and pump up your assets because you just invested in a frisky and frugal piece of capital that will help keep your sex life afloat in these tough economic times.

■ A brilliant gi for anybody with a saucy side. ■ The recession-based humour will appeal to readers of Private Eye and viewers of Have I Got News for You and 10 O’Clock Live.

Trim the Hedge Fund

Oh, David Camera-On

You may be poor, but an overgrown bush is more a sign of laziness than poverty

No money in the kitty for the latest porn-flick? Make your own! Requires 3 or more people

Requires 2 people

YOU WILL NEED:

YOU WILL NEED:

• A well-grown hedge (of the lady-garden variety) • Your preferred hair removal equipment • Accessories of your choice – glitter, vajazzle jewels, leaves, etc.

• A camera (phone or digital will do, but roll out the pro-equipment if you have it!) • A shooting location • Props

WHAT TO DO: Although it’s quite the delight to have a complete stranger tear the roots (and your very soul) from your lady love zone, you will always pay a premium for professional service. It’s time to cut back, and trim that hedge on the cheap. In order to reap the rewards of your frugality, your partner has to give you the trim and treatment you desire. Although it may not be the life you’re accustomed to, your own private gardener is sure to get turned on after giving your hedge the royal treatment.

£ SEXONOMIC BONUS £ Give your gardener a break and treat his tackle to some attention of its own, as his reward for saving you cash.

24

WHAT TO DO: They say when times are tough, friends come together and we couldn’t agree more – especially about the coming part. Don’t waste your cash on cheap skin flicks – assign roles to the sexy girls and guys you know and get them to act out the hilarious and horny build up to a filthy porn scene that would get any funemployed friend hot and bothered. How far they take things is up to them. Capture the whole show on camera (edit it and add in music, if you’re that way inclined) and then screen the film for the group.

£ SEXONOMIC BONUS £ Dash out for a few bottles of cheap wine to celebrate your sexy debuts, and see where the evening goes. 25

Welcome to our new season Summersdale is growing from strength to strength, with even more books than ever to enjoy. This season celebrates all that is great about Britain, from the hugely informative The British Isles: A Trivia Gazetteer to an unusual tour around London by boat in Circle Line, plus A Little Bit of Wit from both Churchill and Shakespeare. Those seeking to be more self-sufficient will love Anna Nicholas’s adventures in A Bull on the Beach, or you can take a pennypinching leaf out of Make Do and Mend and Dig for Victory. Or why not hit your sweet spot learning how to make honey with James Dearsley in From A to Bee? If that sounds too tame, tackle one of the World’s Most Dangerous Jobs from your armchair, or read Geoffrey Abbott’s Execution: A Guide to the Ultimate Penalty. Animal lovers will be amused and delighted with a wide range of gi books about our furry friends: test your knowledge with the Dog and Cat Puzzlers, chuckle at the felons in FBI’s Most Wanted Cats and CIA’s Most Wanted Dogs, and shudder at the World’s Deadliest Animals. If that’s all too much, good old Fred Basset is back with the 2013 Yearbook. We have something for the whole family with our two new gi series: For a…, when you need something special for a fabulous wife, wonderful husband, great friend or fantastic teacher, and Happy Birthday… to celebrate your mum, dad, grandma or granddad’s special day. You’ll be tickled by our Baby Tips for mums, dads and grandparents, before it’s back to school with F in Retakes and our hilarious mini-series: F in Science, English, Geography and History. We end the year with some lovely gi books that will give you something to reflect upon in 2013, with 365 Days of Mindfulness, 365 Days of Romance and 365 Days of Inspiration. We hope you enjoy our new catalogue and want to say THANK YOU to all our booksellers and journalists, agents and reps for your continued support! Feedback: enquiries@summersdale.com.
