The Croquet Player (Bison Frontiers of Imagination)
The Croquet Player (Bison Frontiers of
Something is horribly wrong in the remote English village of Cainsmarsh. An elderly woman stiffens in dread at her own shadow; a terrified farmer murders a scarecrow; food prepared by others is eyed with suspicion; family pets are bludgeoned to death; loving couples are devoured by rage and violence. A spirit-corrupting evil pervades the land, infesting the minds of those who call Cainsmarsh home. Is this vision real, or a paranoid fantasy generated by an even darker, worldwide threat? And is the call to resist the danger itself a danger? These are questions that disturb the calm of an indolent croquet player who happens to hear the tale of the unlucky village. H. G. Wells’s ambiguous story of horror is a modern classic, a prophetic, disturbing glimpse of the primitive distrust and violence that gnaw at the heart of the modern world.

THE CROQUET PLAYER, H.G. Wells - Viking Press, 1937 (U.S. first edition)
Brothers And The Croquet Player
Brothers And The Croquet
The Brothers: In a land torn apart by civil war, Bolaris was fiercely loyal to the Strong Men. So when Number Four informed him that Ratzel, leader of the enemy, had been captured, it was naturally a cause for celebration - that was until Bolaris actually met his great opponent... The likeness between Bolaris and Ratzel was so remarkable that Bolaris was left in no doubt that they were related - brothers, or perhaps even twins. As sworn enemies, and now as his captor, Bolaris had to work out a way to discover the truth of his identity - and do so without sacrificing his loyalty. The Croquet Player: Georgie was a very sensitive man, what some would, and did, call a sissy. Of course Georgie would never dream of blaming his somewhat effeminate nature on the over-possessive and overbearing aunt who brought him up - although others weren't quite so reticent with their opinions. Georgie had one reason at least to thank his aunt - she had led him into the career he so shone at. It didn't matter to Georgie that playing croquet wasn't exactly the most glamorous thing he could do, because it was on the croquet lawn that he met some of the most intriguing people.

The "Wicked Wickets": A serialized novella (part 1) about competitive croquet. The team's youngest player is 87 (The Team-to-Beat)
The "Wicked Wickets": A serialized novella (part 1)
This is a story that could be named: “Senior-Living meets Competitive-Croquet” or “How my mother can turn from a really-nice-wonderful-sweet-lady into an amazing-fierce-competitor-with-a-mallet, look out!” or “It seemed like a good idea at the time to get the residents interested in playing a little gentle-croquet”. But the story isn’t named one of those things. Its title is: THE “WICKED WICKETS”. Let me start over… The residents at Flag Lodge Senior Living are in their eighties and nineties. The ambulance is called to the Lodge at least once every week. Someone is always falling down somewhere in the Lodge. Dinner starts at 5:30, and memories aren’t as strong as they used to be. Outside the dining-room there’s a parking area in the hallway for wheelchairs and strollers. Things are about to get a little more exiting...

Pétanque: The Greatest Game You Never Heard Of: Beyond Bocce, The Elegant & Intelligent French Game of Boules
Pétanque: The Greatest Game You Never Heard Of:
The Wellington Pétanque Association said: "Pétanque: The Greatest Game You have Never Heard Of!" by Byron Putman may simply be the best English language book ever published! ... All clubs are encouraged to purchase at least one copy of the book for their members to read. Any player who is serious about improving their game should also purchase a copy for their own study. Anyone involved in coaching should definitely purchase a copy."La Pétanque Marinière (Marin County Pétanque in California) Blog said: "Here is a great book, just published, about Pétanque. Actually the first English language book to be written about the sport."Almost everyone is familiar with the Italian bowls game Bocce. With the exception of those who have traveled to France, few Americans know Pétanque the "Elegant & Intelligent French Game of Boules." Contrary to the opinion of many ill-informed Americans, the French are a warm and generous people - that is except when it comes to their national game of Pétanque. In America too many clubs are tightly controlled by elitist French-Americans who practice Pétanque as an extension of French culture rather than a competitive sport. With respect and admiration to my French friends, now is the time to relinquish control and let the entire world embrace th...
