Happy New Year! Have you made any New Year’s resolutions, big, small, or medium-sized? Get inspired to change your life with 10 gems from our catalogue.

But first, let’s properly celebrate A Happy New Year with 27 verses by Charles de la Poer Beresford. Some poems fit this season, others have more special topics, like the Londonderry city election.

It’s a very special day for Tom Playfair when he is sent to St. Maure’s boarding school run by Jesuits. There, the unruly boy must learn to adapt in the novel for young boys by Francis J. Finn.

When an American visits England, smaller adjustments are to be expected. But when WWI breaks out in this story by H. G. Wells, war upends the lives of everybody. It is possible that Mr. Britling Sees it Through?

In such cases, a Victorious Attitude is invaluable. Orison Swett Marden teaches you how to improve your life and overcome obstacles by reducing negative thoughts and having faith in yourself.

In football, such advice comes from the coach – but the team of Clearfield High hast just lost theirs. Can they find a new one before The Secret Play against Springfield? Ralph Henry Barbour knows more.

Want to know more about cooking? Janet McKenzie Hill is an expert on Salads, Sandwiches and Chafing-Dish Dainties. This short book will turn you into a veritable god or goddess of food.

Then again, being a god isn’t all it’s made out to be. The gods of Ancient Greece find themselves in modern society and need a new purpose. How this turns out is explored in the comedy Os Deuses de Casaca by Machado de Assis.

Johann Peter Hebel is a quite funny writer too. His short Kalendergeschichten were written for – and became a highlight of – the Rheinländischer Hausfreund. This is a selection of six of his stories.

The imperial diamonds, a highlight from Turkey, went missing in London. While police suspect an insider, Reginald Brett thinks otherwise. Can the hobby detective solve The Albert Gate Mystery in the story by Louis Tracy?

A new year – a new hobby! How about learning the Art of Ventriloquism and Vocal Illusions from Frederic Maccabe? This little book provides you with the theory and with practical exercises. Both will come handy when you start recording for us this year. Just sayin’…

Enjoy – and we wish you all a wonderful 2023!
