An unforgettable heroine in a novel of the Crusades.
Joanna is the strong-willed daughter of King Henry of England and Eleanor of Aquitaine. Close to her brother Richard Lionheart, she grew up at courts in France and England. From jousts to the infamous Courts of Love, from family quarrels to international intrigues, Joanna’s youth was spent in the thick of it all.
With her ambition to become a queen, like her much-admired mother, Joanna marries King William of Sicily and is swept away to a court that is a crossroads for Normans, Italians, Jews, Arabs, and Byzantines. She is furious when she learns that her husband William possesses a harem—but she refuses to accept it in silence, acting like a true descendant of Vikings.
That is only the beginning of Joanna’s adventures. When Jerusalem falls to Saladin, her husband and the Lionheart make plans to go on Crusade. And Joanna persuades Richard to let her accompany him.
This historical epic introduces a strong and truly unforgettable heroine, Joanna Plantagenet, whose drive and persistence helped change the course of history.

DEEP SPACE GARBAGE WAR
For centuries the slobs who inhabit the Earth have been rocketing their refuse into the Galaxy, carelessly littering the cosmos with wrappers and peelings and bottles and cans. But now the universe is about to get even. What goes up must come down …
An immense comet of garbage has been sighted on a collision course for Earth! Only one man can stop it: a human discard, a lowly government worker who dreams of becoming a Space Patrol Captain but could never pass the physical—the unheroic, the imperfect, the one-and-only Sidney Malloy!
The band knows him as their tight-lipped lead singer Jim, but Jacob Bar Azazel is Satan’s only son, a man with thousands of years of history and a heavy burden of cursed love. Now, against all the odds and despite facing terrifying foes, the ragged rock-and-roll band have made it to Hell in time for the opening of the Liminal Year. Can they get through the hordes of Hell to the Council Chamber? Can they keep it together long enough to get what they came for? And what exactly does Jim have up his sleeve?
