Within a Man's Heart

by Tom Winton

Four years after burying his young wife, New York sales executive Christian Crews still can’t move forward with his life. Day after day, treasured memories of his beloved Elyse continue to drift through his spirit like an endless procession of mournful ghosts. Chris wants to leave Manhattan—walk away from his job and the apartment he and Elyse once shared. He dreams of moving to New Hampshire, where he feels he just might have a chance of finding peace. But in his grieving mind, breaking away from those memories would be the same as abandoning Elyse—an unforgivable act of betrayal he could never live with.Then, on the fourth anniversary of Elyse’s death, Chris makes two shocking discoveries, and a part of him begins to believe that she would want him to go on with his life. Two wee...

The Hidden Lights (The Soul Seer Saga, Book 1)

by Kestra Pingree

When you share the emotions of everyone around you, how do you know which feelings, if any, belong to you?

The unusual ability to feel the exact emotions of every other human being sets Rimn apart from normal people. Some might view such an ability as a gift, but she sees it as a curse.

White Mexicans: & Other Short Stories That All Definitely Happened*

by David Louden

Too poor to escape Los Angeles, too weak to survive in it; Doug Morgan takes a job writing an Exploitation movie to pay the bills. Struggling with the pay-off between art and commerce he finds himself on the path to redemption, if he can scrape himself off rock bottom.

Half novella, half short story compilation, White Mexicans is an American tale told in the Irish yarn tradition. Populated with Louden’s usual spit & spite dialogue, off-colour humour and poetic lamentation of a world gone wrong; his third outing is a mix of fable and low-life fiction.




*The statement that all stories “definitely happened” is one used for entertainment purposes and should not be considered factual or legally binding. All too often Mr. Louden is full of s...

Transitional Period

by Steven Finkelstein

Anthony Rizzo’s girlfriend Andy has just broken up with him. He’s a few months away from finishing his undergraduate degree in psychology, a feat which has taken him somewhat longer than the allotted four years. The fact that he is adhering to a strict regimen of drugs, alcohol, and sleepless nights isn’t helping matters. As he himself is quick to point out, he is in no hurry to join the job market and the “real world.” Anthony has become disillusioned, if not disgusted, with college, and with Pittsburgh, where he has spent the last twenty-two years of his life. Despite his self destructive behavior, he will graduate in a matter of months…and he isn’t quite sure what will come next.Transitional Period is an examination of the current college lifestyle. It deals with some ...

AS IT SEEMS TO ME NOW

by Don Taylor

Very little of Don Taylors work falls within any specific genre.
Essentially here is an intensely sexual love story in a middle-class suburbia wherein lurk various figures of dubious morals and intent. Simultaneously the main storyline is juxtaposed against the ongoing struggles of other individuals at levels materially less fortunate than the principal characters. A stir-fry of happenings, good and otherwise.

The Mules of Borgo San Marco

by W. H. Canaway

Italy. The last days of the war… In the little mountain village of Borgo San Marco, the gallant German Major Trommel and his batman, Private Wohlhaber, continue their occupation despite being the only members of their unit left in residence. For Trommel, desperate to be a hero and forever denied due to the malformation known as a ‘pigeon chest’, the posting is a disappointment. For Wohlhaber, occupying Borgo San Marco means he stays far, far away from any action at the front…and he’s willing to pretend to be an imbecile if it means he can stay.Nearby, the equally gallant English Major Widdicombe, just arrived in Italy, is en route for the Eighth Army, accompanied by three cook-reinforcements. A slight error takes him up to Borgo San Marco — where both he and Trommel soon find ...

G. Wells makes an interesting experiment in the short story The Country of the Blind: he creates a world in which the minority becomes the majority.

The Kings in the Kasbah

by Maggi Smith

The moment that Queenie and Jack stepped into the courtyard of Riad Kasbah, they knew that their choice of lodgings was perfect. There was a lemon tree and there were sofas strewn with satin cushions. There was even a fountain. Their friendly host, Mohammed welcomed them with mint tea. The holiday got off to a wonderful start. They hung around the Dʼjemaa el Fna, the square made famous for its spectacular displays of snake charmers, exotic dancing and wild music. And they wandered the souks of Marrakech, enchanted by the colours and smells and sounds of the market place. But when Jack and Queenie happily agreed to take care of the house while Mohammed popped out for an hour, their holiday plans went out of the door with him and their trip to Morocco took off in an altogether different d...

Thomas "Tom" Sawyer is the title character of the Mark Twain novel THE ADVENTURES OF TOM SAWYER (1876). He appears in three other novels by Twain: ADVENTURES OF HUCKLEBERRY FINN (1884), TOM SAWYER ABROAD (1894), and TOM SAWYER, DETECTIVE (1896). Sawyer also appears in at least three unfinished Twain works, HUCK AND TOM AMONG THE INDIANS, SCHOOLHOUSE HILL and TOM SAWYER'S CONSPIRACY. While all three uncompleted works were posthumously published, only Tom Sawyer's Conspiracy has a complete plot, as Twain abandoned the other two works after finishing only a few chapters.The fictional character's name may have been derived from a jolly and flamboyant fireman named Tom Sawyer with whom Twain was acquainted in San Francisco, California, while Twain was employed as a reporter at the San Francisco...

Jane Eyre (Wisehouse Classics - With Illustrations by F. H. Townsend)

by Charlotte Brontë and F H Townsend

JANE EYRE (originally published as Jane Eyre: An Autobiography) is a novel by English writer Charlotte Brontë. It was published on 16 October 1847, by Smith, Elder & Co. of London, England, under the pen name “Currer Bell.” The first American edition was published the following year by Harper & Brothers of New York. Primarily of the Bildungsroman genre, Jane Eyre follows the emotions and experiences of its eponymous heroine, including her growth to adulthood and her love for Mr. Rochester, the Byronic master of fictitious Thornfield Hall. In its internalisation of the action—the focus is on the gradual unfolding of Jane's moral and spiritual sensibility, and all the events are coloured by a heightened intensity that was previously the domain of poetry—Jane Eyre revolutionised the ...

Emma (Wisehouse Classics - With Illustrations by H.M. Brock)

by Jane Austen and H M Brock

EMMA, by Jane Austen, is a novel about youthful hubris and the perils of misconstrued romance. The novel was first published in December 1815. As in her other novels, Austen explores the concerns and difficulties of genteel women living in Georgian-Regency England; she also creates a lively comedy of manners among her characters.Before she began the novel, Austen wrote, “I am going to take a heroine whom no one but myself will much like.” In the first sentence she introduces the title character as “Emma Woodhouse, handsome, clever, and rich.” Emma is spoiled, headstrong, and self-satisfied; she greatly overestimates her own matchmaking abilities; she is blind to the dangers of meddling in other people's lives; and her imagination and perceptions often lead her astray. The novel has...
