Stephen Fry explores the highways and byways of the English language in these four programmes, as heard on BBC Radio 4.

- 'The Trial of Qwerty' - The 'Qwerty' keyboard faces charges of conspiracy to obstruct the English language. But who was Mr Qwerty?
- 'He Said, She Said' - Do men and women really say what they mean? Also Stephen investigates sex, domination, gender, power, and sex changes (as only he can).
- 'Accentuate the Negative' - We discover that 'no' can mean 'yes'. And why you should never mess with Mr In Between...
- 'Future Conditional' - Stephen looks to the future with some predictions. Will robots be able to read novels? How much will our computers be able to understand us? Will English rule - or change? And then there's a question about a duck...

They watched Danilo Silva for days before they finally grabbed him. He was living alone, a quiet life on a shady street in Brazil; a simple life in a modest home, certainly not one of luxury. Certainly no evidence of the fortune they thought he had stolen. He was much thinner and his face had been altered. He spoke a different language, and spoke it very well. But Danilo had a past with many chapters. Four years earlier he had been Patrick Lanigan, a young partner in a prominent Biloxi law firm. He had a pretty wife, a new daughter, and a bright future. Then one cold winter night Patrick was trapped in a burning car and died a horrible death. When he was buried his casket held nothing more than his ashes. From a short distance away, Patrick watched his own burial. Then he fled. Six weeks later, a fortune was stolen from his ex-law firm's offshore account. And Patrick fled some more. But they found him.

Обычный, казалось бы, процесс по иску, предъявленному табачной корпорации вдовой умершего от рака легких среднего американца… Сколько уж было таких! Ничто не предвещает неожиданностей. И вдруг по какой-то непонятной причине все слетает с привычных бюрократических нарезок. Жюри стало совершенно неуправляемым. Одного из присяжных кто-то явно преследует - по меньшей мере одного. Могущественные `теневые команды` стремятся навязать суду нужный им вердикт. И звонит, звонит по телефону таинственная женщина, изощренно манипулирующая присяжными и добивающаяся чего-то, что не в силах понять никто, кроме нее..

Merlin continues to attempt to solve the mysteries in his life: Why did Julia turn against him? And how did she get involved with Jurt, who is raging against him a ruthless vendetta?
After being trapped in a strange world peopled with ghosts induced by the Pattern, Merlin discovers that he is involved in a superpower quarrel between Amber's Pattern and the Logrus of Chaos.
In this book, Merlin describes Corwin's voice as "the voice which had once told me a very long story containing multiple versions of an auto accident and a number of genealogical gaffes." The "genealogical gaffes" here refers to a number of inconsistencies in the first series (the Corwin Cycle) regarding the parentage of Corwin's various siblings.

Merlin realises that Wonderland, where he and Luke are trapped, is an LSD-induced hallucination made real by Luke's powers over shadow. As a Fire Angel (a vicious creature from Chaos) pursues them, he administers medicine to Luke. The Fire Angel is weakened in a fight with the Jabberwock and Merlin is able to finish it off with the vorpal sword. He leaves Luke to sober up.

He seeks his stepbrother Mandor, who thinks that their half-brother Jurt may be trying to kill Merlin in order to take the throne of Chaos. Fiona contacts them, and they investigate a shadow-storm. Merlin and Mandor return to Amber, and then along with Jasra they wrest the Keep of the Four worlds from Jurt and the sorcerer, Mask. They learn that Jurt has (at least partially) turned himself into a living Trump, as Brand did, and that the sorcerer Mask is in fact Merlin's ex-girlfriend Julia.
