‘They didn’t see the house until they were practically on top of it. A single building emerging from the dark. It didn’t look welcoming. But the front door was open. The door was wide open.’ Irongrove Lodge – a building with history; the very bricks and grounds imbued with the stories of those who have walked these corridors, lived in these rooms. These are the tales of an extraordinary house, a place that straddles our world and whatever lies beyond; a place that some are desperate to discover, and others to flee. At one time an asylum, at another a care home, sometimes simply a home. The residents of Irongrove Lodge will learn that this house will change them, that the stories told here never go away. Of all who enter, only some will leave. Multi-award-winning editor Jonathan Oliver has brought together five extraordinary writers to open the doors, revealing ghosts both past and present in a collection as intriguing as it is terrifying. Along with a linking narrative, this collection features five novellas by Nina Allan, Tade Thompson, K.J. Parker, Robert Shearman and Sarah Lotz.

The initial portion of this book is a chronological narrative of theatre construction in Philadelphia, from the first known theatre in 1724 to the present day. Following it is the main annotated listing of over eight hundred theatres, arranged alphabetically by theatre name. Other names used by the theatre are indicated and cross references are provided as necessary. Standard data for each theatre includes, as available, the address of the building, the seating capacity, and the architect. For most theatres, an architectural description of the exterior and interior is given along with information on dates of construction, renovations, and openings. In addition, the theatre's policy, importance, and distinctions are explained. This is followed by a brief description of, and a map which graphically depicts, the concentration of theatres in the center of Philadelphia, the original city laid out by William Penn. This section also includes a list of the one hundred forty-seven theatres constructed there, with addresses and grid locations. Another section entitled Architects and Buildings provides information about the dates the theatres opened, when alterations were made, and when available, the life dates of the architects. A glossary of architectural and theatrical terms completes the volume.

Part of the Storyworlds series, this pack contains the four Stage Five Our World stories about children's experiences at school and home. They are The Mango Tree, Presents, Grandma's Surprise and Who Did It?. Each stage of Storyworlds provides a carefully structured introduction of words and language. The different worlds ensure that these are introduced and practised in a variety of contexts. Stages Four, Five and Six adopt a broadening structure to encourage the move to independent reading. Between 20 and 40 new words are added at each of these three stages, and continued repetition of text helps to maintain the build-up of confidence.
