...<b>The Corpus Conundrum: A Third Case from the Notebooks of Pliny the Younger (Volume 3)</b>, Bell, Albert A.
4 Bell, Albert A. ...The Corpus Conundrum: A Third Case from the Notebooks of Pliny the Younger (Volume 3)
USA: Ingalls Publishing Group, Inc., 2011. 1932158960 / 9781932158960 Soft cover.
No Flaws or Blemishes; Gift Quality.
While out hunting, Pliny finds a man's body. He appears lifeless, but Pliny cannot find a cause of death. He locks the body in a stable, but in the morning the body is gone. Strangers appear at Pliny's door, claiming to be the man's children. One sings siren songs and claims his "father" is immortal. Another may be an empusa, a shape-shifting, blood-drinking monster.
Bodies pile up: a fifteen year old murder, a faceless man floating in the bay, and the "lifeless immortal," this time with his throat cut. Was he killed for his blood? Pliny and Tacitus must discover how the murders are connected to each other and to Pliny's nemesis Marcus Aquilius Regulus.

12 Connell, Evan S. ...The Alchymist's Journal.
San Francisco, California: North Point Press: 1991. 0865474648 / 9780865474642 First Edition; First Printing; Hardcover in Jacket.
No Flaws or Blemishes; Gift Quality,
The ancient art of alchemy has fascinated writers for centuries, novelist Connell being no exception. Perhaps best known for the television and recent movie adaptations of his works Son of the Morning Star , Mr. Bridge , and Mrs. Bridge , Connell here delves into more obscure matters.
Consisting of a series of journals told from the viewpoints of seven alchemists, this work explores alchemy and its relationship to life.
Although written in an antique style, the journal entries nonetheless offer contemporary wisdom, especially on the subject of healing. However, despite its creativity, the book uses technical and esoteric vocabulary that will present difficulty for all but the most determined reader. This is a book for those who enjoy the puzzling and who share Connell's enthusiasm for the subject.
