About this Item: Condition: New. Publisher/Verlag: Random House US | The #1 New York Times Best Seller is now a major motion picture from visionary director Tim Burton, starring Eva Green, Asa Butterfield, Ella Purnell, Samuel L. Jackson, and Judi Dench.Includes an excerpt from Hollow City and an interview with author Ransom RiggsA mysterious island.

An abandoned orphanage.

A strange collection of very curious photographs.

It all waits to be discovered in Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, an unforgettable novel that mixes fiction and photography in a thrilling reading experience. As our story opens, a horrific family tragedy sets sixteen-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a deserted island for good reason. And somehow-impossible though it seems-they may still be alive. 

A spine-tingling fantasy illustrated with haunting vintage photography, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children will delight adults, teens, and anyone who relishes an adventure in the shadows."A tense, moving, and wondrously strange first novel. The photographs and text work together brilliantly to create an unforgettable story."-John Green, New York Times best-selling author of The Fault in Our Stars"With its X-Men: First Class-meets-time-travel story line, David Lynchian imagery, and rich, eerie detail, it's no wonder Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children has been snapped up by Twentieth Century Fox. B+"-Entertainment Weekly"'Peculiar' doesn't even begin to cover it. Riggs' chilling, wondrous novel is already headed to the movies."-People"You'll love it if you want a good thriller for the summer. It's a mystery, and you'll race to solve it before Jacob figures it out for himself."-Seventeen | Format: Paperback | Language/Sprache: english | 407 gr | 208x132x21 mm | 384 pp. Seller Inventory # K9781594746031

About this Item: Createspace, United States, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. I published my original Tales of Ramasun in February 2012 and moved on to other things like Mixed Foursome: The Zach Roper Mysteries about a golf-loving detective and his sexy sidekick, the Thai Princess, but more Tales kept drifting into my mind and I just had to write them down. Eventually I found that I had enough to make another book which I have unimaginatively entitled Tales of Ramasun II. Hey if it s good enough for Hollywood and all those Rocky movies it might work on Amazon, anything might work on Amazon.or not. For those of you who read and appreciated my first effort this will be a chance to take another trip back to dear old Ramasun. I got some really positive and encouraging emails from you so I know that there s interest out there. You are a small, select group at present, but at least you are enthusiastic. For non-Ramasun-ians take heart. You can dive right into Tales II or read the original Tales of Ramasun first. Either way you will return to the Thailand of the 1960s, enter the shadow puppet world of espionage, and visit the spooks and spies of long-gone Ramasun Station and its military unit, the 7th RRFS. The 7th Radio Research Field Station, that is. Our research was electronic eavesdropping on everything that was going on in Southeast Asia in those days, and there was a lot going on. You may have heard of the Vietnam War, that was the main thing that was going on, and the 7th spied on everyone.friend, foe and neutral. Our spying was done from Ramasun Station, a top secret outpost in far Northeast Thailand (better known as Isaan.ee-sahn), and from our sister station, the 8th RRFS at Phu Bai in Vietnam. All the heavy lifting of signal intelligence gathering was done by the military in those days, at listening posts like Ramasun and Phu Bai. Now it is done by the civilian National Security Agency (NSA) and most of the people who do it don t ever have to leave the comfort of their offices at Ft. Meade, Maryland where they look at computer screens that bring them intercepted information from orbiting satellites and drones. It was harder then. No computers, no satellites, you had to be close to what you were listening in on, but it was basically the same job, then and now, and you needed the same mix of folks to do it.Translator/Interpreters, Intelligence Analysts, Traffic Analysts and a host of techies, though the techies of Ramasun were radio techies, not computer nerds. I don t know what they call them now at NSA, but we called them Lingies, Dittyboppers, radioheads and TAs among other things, How do I know this? I was one of them, a Lao Lingy for 27 months during 1969-71, at Ramasun and a few other places on TDY (temporary duty). I was Army, the US Army Security Agency (ASA) to be precise, but there were men from all branches at Ramasun, probably more Air Force (AFSA) than Army, though it was officially an Army Base.there were also civilians, and even a few women, but they did not arrive until after I left. The NSA, better known as The Puzzle Palace, was our customer then. We did the front-line work and shipped the results back to them for analysis. Now they do all the work and ASA and AFSA have been put out of business. Ramasun Station went out of business too, long ago. It existed for ten years from 1966 to 1976 when the Thai government closed it. There s no trace left of it now, not even a brass plaque to mark the spot where it once stood. Only the old spooks and spies of the 7th remain, and they may not be around for much longer. It is time tell their story, my story. They were a wild, oversexed, undisciplined, oddball bunch. In many ways the 7th RRFS was like the M*A*S*H 4077th, brainy smartass troops who thumbed their noses at by the book military authority, but always rose to the occasion when there was real work to be done. Sloppy-looking troublemakers with bad attitudes about everything except the mission, they worked as hard as. Seller Inventory # APC9781481964555

The 7th Radio Research Field Station, that is. Our research was electronic eavesdropping on everything that was going on in Southeast Asia in those days, and there was a lot going on. You may have heard of the Vietnam War, that was the main thing that was going on, and the 7th spied on everyone.friend, foe and neutral. Our spying was done from Ramasun Station, a top secret outpost in far Northeast Thailand (better known as Isaan.ee-sahn), and from our sister station, the 8th RRFS at Phu Bai in Vietnam. All the heavy lifting of signal intelligence gathering was done by the military in those days, at listening posts like Ramasun and Phu Bai. Now it is done by the civilian National Security Agency (NSA) and most of the people who do it don t ever have to leave the comfort of their offices at Ft. Meade, Maryland where they look at computer screens that bring them intercepted information from orbiting satellites and drones. It was harder then. No computers, no satellites, you had to be close to what you were listening in on, but it was basically the same job, then and now, and you needed the same mix of folks to do it.Translator/Interpreters, Intelligence Analysts, Traffic Analysts and a host of techies, though the techies of Ramasun were radio techies, not computer nerds. I don t know what they call them now at NSA, but we called them Lingies, Dittyboppers, radioheads and TAs among other things, How do I know this? I was one of them, a Lao Lingy for 27 months during 1969-71, at Ramasun and a few other places on TDY (temporary duty). I was Army, the US Army Security Agency (ASA) to be precise, but there were men from all branches at Ramasun, probably more Air Force (AFSA) than Army, though it was officially an Army Base.there were also civilians, and even a few women, but they did not arrive until after I left. The NSA, better known as The Puzzle Palace, was our customer then. We did the front-line work and shipped the results back to them for analysis. Now they do all the work and ASA and AFSA have been put out of business. Ramasun Station went out of business too, long ago. It existed for ten years from 1966 to 1976 when the Thai government closed it. There s no trace left of it now, not even a brass plaque to mark the spot where it once stood. Only the old spooks and spies of the 7th remain, and they may not be around for much longer. It is time tell their story, my story. They were a wild, oversexed, undisciplined, oddball bunch. In many ways the 7th RRFS was like the M*A*S*H 4077th, brainy smartass troops who thumbed their noses at by the book military authority, but always rose to the occasion when there was real work to be done. Sloppy-looking troublemakers with bad attitudes about everything except the mission, they worked as hard as. Seller Inventory # APC9781481964555

About this Item: Forgotten Books, United States, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Historical Discourse Delivered in the Congregational Church, Jewett City, Conn., April 25th, 1875 I pass to notice the ministry of his successor, rev. Levi hart, whom a few before me remember, and of whom many before me have Often heard. His name is pronounced by all who remember him, with singular reverence and affection. He was the son of Thomas Hart, of Southington, Conn., educated at Yale College, graduated in 1760, studied theology with the celebrated Dr. Bell amy, of Bethlehem. During his residence in Dr. Bellamy s family he became engaged to one of the Doctor s daughters, which resulted in their marriage soon after his settlement at North Pres ton. The funeral sermon occasioned by her death, which was published, is a fair specimen Of his style of writing, and is remark able as breathing a spirit of consecration to his work in the midstof sorrow. It is entitled: The Sacred Obligation of Christian Ministers to Improve their Personal Sorrows for the Benefit of their People. His wife died Dec. 24, I787; in October, 1790, he formed a second matrimonial connection with Mrs. Backus, widow of Nathaniel Backus. Of Norwich, - her maiden name was Lydia Leffingwell, sister of the great uncle whose name I have the honor to bear. Dr. Hart possessed rare ministerial qualifica tions. With superior natural gifts, and a thorough academical and theological training, he could not but be an instructive preacher. Conversing not long since with an earnest Christian, and speaking of a certain sensational preacher, he Observed, he is brilliant, but he does not edify. If not brilliant, Dr. Hart did edify. He was distinguished as a Hebrew scholar. I have often heard my old aunt, who spent her last days in my father s family, .and who never wearied talking ofher Preston life, recalling interesting anecdotes of the Coits, and Tylers, and Morgans, and Lords, and Lesters, say that Manasseh Prentice, a very godly neighbor, when he called at their house used often to ask Mr. Hart to read from his He brew Bible, saying I don t understand a word, but I love to hear the good book in the language in which it was first written. When Dr. Hart died it was said that half the Hebrew Of eastern Connecticut died with him, and when Dr. Benedict died it was said that the remainder followed. Dr. Hart s reputation as a divine drew to him students in theology, for he lived long before the days of Theological Seminaries. Among his pupils were Dr. Asa Burton, afterwards famous as the author of what is familiarly known as The Taste Scheme. Dr. Charles Backus, a native of Franklin, and settled in Somers, was another of his pupils, a man of great worth; he died young of consumption, but not till he had made his mark upon the age. Dr. Dwight, in the second volume of his Travels in New England and New York, has paid a most affectionate tribute to the memory of his classmate. Another of his pupils was Nathaniel Howe, of Hopkinton, Mass, the man who in his century sermon, among other things equally plain (i quote verbatim at literati/72) said: I have sometimes administered reproof, both to the church and society, in a manner that has been thought to discover some degree Of severity, but in these cases you have always had the good sense to know that you richly de served it. Mr. Asahel Huntington, another native of Franklin, and who married a granddaughter of the Rev. Hezekiah Lord.
