When Edith Templeton’s stories began appearing in The New Yorker in the late 1950s, she quickly became a favorite of the magazine’s discerning readers. Her finely honed writing, honestly drawn heroines, and distinctive themes secured her reputation. The Dart’s of Cupid collects seven of Templeton’s stories for the first time and reintroduces one of the truly great writers of the twentieth century. In settings ranging from a decrepit Bohemian castle between the wars to London during World War II to the Italian Riviera in the 1990s, the heroines of these stories often find themselves confronting unfathomable passsions and perplexing actions by others, but they seldom feel regret. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Now you can play one of the world's best-loved games anytime, anywhere. A working miniature dart kit, The Mini Book of Mini Darts has everything you need to get your game on, and more. Created, designed, and illustrated by the team behind the successful Darts! calendar, it includes 40 colorful dartboards (used for 43 games); an ingenious fold-out design that features a stand-up magnetic backer; six blunt-tipped magnetic mini darts; and a full-color book filled with games, rules, technique, lore, and triviaÑa celebration of darts. Ah, that satisfying thwack when the dart hits its targetÑbut with no worries about needle-sharp projectiles going astray, or the need for a regulation distance between the oche (throwing line) and dartboard. Just set up the easel-style board on a desk, table, office cubicle, dorm-room floorÑor yes, barÑthen move back a few feet and play. The 43 games start on the traditional side, with classics like Cricket and 501 played on familiar boards of concentric rings, then move quickly into quirky, innovative, and fun challenges like Pyramid Power, Trip to the Stars, Cupid's Arrow, Roulette, Please Stand By, and Coney Island Hustle. The boards themselves are works of art, with imagery ranging from bowling pins to Stonehenge to a mushroom and pepperoni pizza, from a Mayan calendar to a drum kit. Plus readers will learn about top players, the origins of -01 games, dartitisÑthe darts version of the yipsÑand how to master the perfect throw.

The original Fifty Shades of Grey, Edith Templeton's novel Gordon has been banned, pirated and published under various names for almost fifty years Post-war London. Louisa, a smartly dressed young woman in the midst of a divorce, meets a charismatic man in a pub, and within an hour has been sexually conquered by him on a garden bench. Thus begins her baffling but magnetic love affair with Richard Gordon. Gordon, a psychiatrist, keeps Louisa in his thrall with his almost omniscient ability to see through her, and she is equally gripped by the unexpected pleasure of complete submission. Subjecting herself to repeated humiliations at his hands, but quite unable and unwilling to free herself from his control, Louisa and Gordon sink further and further into the depths - both psychologically and sexually. An extraordinary novel of psycho-sexual entanglement that was banned for indecency in England in 1966, in Gordon, Edith Templeton captures one of the most unusual and disturbing love stories ever written. 'Templeton's characters are not passive or self-doubting. Their pleasure in sexual submission is a mark of their toughness: they can take what their men give them' The New York Times 'Sexual perversion, masochistic dependency, obsession and suicide' Telegraph 'An unsettling tale of sexual obsession' The New Yorker 'It is unlikely that any young woman will write a book as good, as honest, as provocative as Gordon' Telegraph 'Superbly written and unsettling' Beryl Bainbridge Edith Templeton was born in Prague in 1916 and spent much of her childhood in a castle in the Bohemian countryside. Her short stories began to appear in The New Yorker in the 1950s and caused a major stir because of their sexual explicitness (these stories are available in one volume entitled The Darts of Cupid as a Penguin ebook). Gordon first appeared in 1966 under the pseudonym Louise Walbrook and was subsequently banned in England and Germany; it was then pirated around the world, appearing under various titles. In 2001, Edith Templeton agreed to publish the novel, with its original title, under her own name. She died in 2006.

Just before dawn one winter’s morning, a hijacked aeroplane blows apart high above the English Channel and two figures tumble, clutched in an embrace, towards the sea: Gibreel Farishta, India’s legendary movie star, and Saladin Chamcha, the man of a thousand voices. Washed up, alive, on an English beach, their survival is a miracle. But there is a price to pay. Gibreel and Saladin have been chosen as opponents in the eternal wrestling match between Good and Evil. But chosen by whom? And which is which? And what will be the outcome of their final confrontation?

Zing! Cupid’s arrow skewers a primitive part of the brain. Obediently, we fall in love amid showers of passionate fireworks, bond for a time … and then often get fed up with each other and grow irritable or numb. Perhaps we try to remodel our mate, seek solace online, or pursue a new love interest. Ancient sages recognized this biological snare and hinted at a way to dodge it: use lovemaking to balance one another and harmony arises naturally. With an entertaining blend of personal experiences, the latest neuroscience, and forgotten insights from around the globe, Cupid’s Poisoned Arrow confronts current assumptions about sex and love and offers a refreshing, practical approach to sexuality.
