A cold October night, 1854. In a dark passageway, an innocent man is stabbed to death. So begins the extraordinary story of Edward Glyver, book lover, scholar and murderer. As a young boy, Glyver always believed he was destined for greatness. This seems the stuff of dreams, until a chance discovery convinces Glyver that he was right: greatness does await him, along with immense wealth and influence. And he will stop at nothing to win back a prize that he now knows is rightfully his. Glyver's path leads him from the depths of Victorian London, with its foggy streets, brothels and opium dens, to Evenwood, one of England's most enchanting country houses. His is a story of betrayal and treachery, of death and delusion, of ruthless obsession and ambition. And at every turn, driving Glyver irresistibly onwards, is his deadly rival: the poet-criminal Phoebus Rainsford Daunt. Thirty years in the writing, THE MEANING OF NIGHT is a stunning achievement. Full of drama and passion, it is an enthralling novel that will captivate readers right up to its final thrilling revelation.

    Thanks for the awesome reviews on multiple web hosting sites. Your info is unparalleled to anything else I've seen regarding this topic. I'm very close to switching to SquareSpace from Webs. (Webs was terrible with loading all of my items when others visited my site.) My only concern in switching is the problem with the live mode. While the live mode differs from editing mode, is it still possible to create a great looking site? I'm nervous that I may not be able to get my site looking exactly how I want it to. Thanks in advance!

      Looking to create a site to fill in a form, as an observation chart (like a medical chart) to email to clients with drop boxes to select paragraphs and text boxes. Want report to be either in the body of the email or as an attachments. Want the report to look nice to impress clients.

      Anyone looking to sell comics or graphic novels, do check used bookstores. One near me gave me 24% of what they would sell it for in cash. If I accepted credit they will give 40%.

    I have toyed with the idea of asking each member how they came to care about their work С how they came to be an environmentalist. Dispelling the notion of the scientist as neutral observer, this is a group of passionate people who care. Each of us has a story for why we do.
