    Wayfinder's Story

      Fred Saberhagen

Wayfinder's Story

From Publishers Weekly

One of 12 magical swords forged by the Gods, Wayfinder has the power to guide its possessor to whatever the seeker wants. Chance brings Wayfinder to Ben of Purkinje, who uses it to find Woundhealer, the sword with powers to cure the injured wife of Prince Mar of Sarykam. The evil magician Wood also wants the swords; his attack on Ben brings Mark, and even more swords, into the fray. Followers of the series--the fantasy equivalent of a space opera--will recognize almost all of the characters from earlier books, in which the villains start out with all the aces while the heroes struggle on through decency, intelligence and willpower to satisfying outcomes. Veteran Saberhagen ( Empire of the East ) keeps the plot moving, providing a pleasurable light reading experience.

From Library Journal

Valdemar, a young grape grower, comes into the ownership of Wayfinder, a legendary sword that can lead its wielder to whatever he most desires. His journey in search of the perfect woman, however, takes strange turnings as Wayfinder's direction involves Valdemar in a battle against the world's most infamous wizard. Saberhagen's style is remarkable for its "no-frills" approach to fantasy. Simply told and continually engaging, this title is recommended where the series is popular.

Diary of an Expat in Singapore

This hilarious new book records the tongue-in-cheek journey of an expat in Singapore, told through vignettes, snapshots and Top 10 lists: "10 sure signs you're in a Singapore taxi"; "Things first-time visitors to Singapore say"; "10 signs you've overstayed"; "Politically-incorrect expat profiling by nationality"; and many more. Based on the author Jennifer Gargiulo's popular blog of the same name, Diary of an Expat in Singapore packs in a wealth of quirky observations, witty one-liners, and laugh-out-loud misunderstandings as the author tries to adjust to life in a strange new land and raise two kids while at it. Marvel as Jennifer enlists the help of her young son, Alexander (who learns Chinese at school), to find out what her hairdressers are saying about her at the salon! Expats will share many of the experiences of the author told in this book, but few will have heard them told with more humour and flair.
