Official, original James Bond from a writer described by Len Deighton as a 'master storyteller'.She is beautiful. She is Russian. And she is very, very dangerous. Once Xenia worked for the KGB. But her new master is Janus, a powerful and ambitious Russian leader who no longer cares about ideology. Janus's ambitions are money and power: his normal business methods include theft and murder. And he has just acquired Goldeneye, a piece of high-tech space technology with the power to destroy or corrupt the West's financial markets. But Janus has underestimated his most determined enemy: James Bond.

Glass Painting for the First Time
By Doris Sorensen
Glass painting can be as simple as sponging on a little colour to make a fun design, or as elaborate as texturing and frosting detailed patterns. You¿ll be amazed at what you can do, especially when guided by an introduction that answers all the basic questions: what do I need to get started, and what will it cost? What kinds of applicators and paint do I use? How do I apply a pattern, and achieve different effects, from 'drip and glaze' to reverse imaging? For every technique there¿s a project - like an Italian glass bottle with millefiori and a monogrammed box with stencilling. As you advance, combine colours on a Heart to Heart Canning Jar Lamp; co-ordinate different pieces of whiteware in a Funky Tea Set; and design with laydowns and one-strokes.
