The Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow #7 Osprey Dark, Mark Latham
2 The Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow #7 Osprey Dark
Mark Latham UK Osprey Publishing 2015 1472807979 / 9781472807977 Soft cover New Book 21.0 x 15.0 x 2.2 cm Alan Lathwell 
The legend of Sleepy Hollow is one of the great tales of American folklore, supposedly stemming from Washington Irving's famous short story. But what if there was more to the ghostly fable than meets the eye? What if Irving's account was based on fact? And what if the Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow was not unique, but merely one of a strange line of malevolent spirits sighted across the world, bringing misfortune to all that witness them? Within this book you will find long-forgotten lore about the headless spirits that have plagued mankind for centuries, and perhaps even now seek ingress into our world. The Headless Horseman, and others like him, is at large in the dark places of the world, and should one encounter such a revenant, it is said that tragedy will surely follow...

The Wars of Atlantis #6 Dark, Phil Masters
3 The Wars of Atlantis #6 Dark
Phil Masters UK Osprey Publishing 2015 1472809327 / 9781472809322 Soft cover New Book 24.8 x 18.4 x 0.6 cm Jose Daniel Cabrera Pena and Rocio Espin Pinar 
On the very edge of recorded history, the fabled island of Atlantis formed the centre of a vast and powerful empire. From there, the divinely-descended lords of the western ocean made war on the rest of the world, until a brave resistance drove them back, and the gods punished them for their hubris. In that last cataclysmic struggle between gods and mortals, the whole island continent sank beneath the sea. For the first time, this book reconstructs the fact and fiction of that lost age of gods and heroes, including the political organization of the Atlantean Empire, the equipment and tactics of the armies of Atlantis and their enemies, and the stories of the great wars themselves, from the early struggles between Atlantean colonies and the Amazons of North Africa to the final and catastrophic counter-invasion of Atlantis by the peoples of Europe and Asia.

The Greek Myths: The Complete and Definitive Edition, Robert Graves
4 The Greek Myths: The Complete and Definitive Edition
Robert Graves UK Penguin 2011 0241952743 / 9780241952740 Soft cover New Book 21.0 x 13.4 x 3.6 cm 
The Greek Myths is the definitive and comprehensive edition of Robert Graves' classic imaginative and poetic retelling of the Greek myths. 'Icarus disobeyed his father's instructions and began soaring towards the sun, rejoiced by the lift of his great sweeping wings. Presently, when Daedalus looked over his shoulder, he could no longer see Icarus; but scattered feathers floated on the waves below...' Including many of the greatest stories ever told - the labours of Hercules, the voyage of the Argonauts, Theseus and the minotaur, Midas and his golden touch, the Trojan War and Odysseus' journey home - Robert Graves' superb and comprehensive retelling of the Greek myths for a modern audience has been regarded for over fifty years as the definitive version. With a novelist's skill and a poet's eye, Graves draws on the entire canon of ancient literature, bringing together all the elements of every myth into one epic and unforgettable story. Ideal for the first time reader, it can be read as a single, continuous narrative, while full commentaries, with cross-references, interpretations, variants and explanations, as well as a comprehensive index of names, make it equally valuable as a work of scholarly reference for anyone seeking an authoritative and detailed account of the gods, heroes and extraordinary events that provide the bedrock of Western literature. The result is a classic among classics, a treasure trove of extraordinary tales and a masterful work of literature in its own right.
