The Tales of Conan the Barbarian (A Collection of Short Stories) White Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

These early works by Robert E. Howard were originally published in the early 20th century and we are now republishing them with a brand new introductory biography. 'The Tales of Conan the Barbarian' is a compilation of Howard's stories in the Conan series and include 'Beyond the Black River', 'Black Colossus', 'Queen of the Black Coast', and many more. Robert Ervin Howard was born in Peaster, Texas in 1906. During his youth, his family moved between a variety of Texan boomtowns, and Howard - a bookish and somewhat introverted child - was steeped in the violent myths and legends of the Old South. At fifteen Howard began to read the pulp magazines of the day, and to write more seriously. The December 1922 issue of his high school newspaper featured two of his stories, 'Golden Hope Christmas' and 'West is West'. In 1924 he sold his first piece - a short caveman tale titled 'Spear and Fang' - for $16 to the not-yet-famous Weird Tales magazine. Howard's most famous character, Conan the Cimmerian, was a barbarian-turned-King during the Hyborian Age, a mythical period of some 12,000 years ago. Conan featured in seventeen Weird Tales stories between 1933 and 1936 which is why Howard is now regarded as having spawned the 'sword and sorcery' genre. The Conan stories have since been adapted many times, most famously in the series of films starring Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Russian Emigre Short Stories from Bunin to Yanovsky - Bryan Karetnyk

Książki & Multimedia > Książki

Opis - Fleeing Russia amid the chaos of the 1917 revolution and subsequent Civil War, many writers went on to settle in Paris, Berlin and elsewhere. In exile, they worked as taxi drivers, labourers and film extras, and wrote some of the most brilliant and imaginative works of Russian literature. This new collection includes stories by the most famous emigre writers, Vladimir Nabokov and Ivan Bunin, and introduces powerful lesser known voices, some of whom have never been available in English before. Here is Yuri Felsen's evocative, impressionistic account of a night of debauchery in Paris; Teffi's witty and timely reflections on refugee experience; and Mark Aldanov's sparkling story of an elderly astrologer who unexpectedly finds himself in Hitler's bunker in Berlin. Exploring displacement, loss and new beginnings, their short stories vividly evoke the experience of life in exile and also return obsessively to the Russia that has been left behind - whether as a beautiful dream or terrifying nightmare.By turns experimental, funny, exciting, poignant and haunting, these works reveal the full range of emigre writing and are presented here in masterly translations by Bryan Karetnyk and others.

In The Oxford Book of American Short Stories, Joyce Carol Oates offers a sweeping survey of American short fiction, in a collection of fifty-nine tales that combines classic works with many `unexpected gems', and that invites readers to explore a wealth of important pieces by women and minority writers. Some selections simply can't be improved upon, Oates admits, and she happily includes such time-honoured works as Irving's `Rip Van Winkle', Poe's `The Tell-Tale Heart' and§Hemingway's `A Clean, Well-Lighted Place'. Alongside these classics, Oates introduces such little-known stories as Mark Twain's `Cannibalism in the Cars' a story that reveals a darker side to his humour. From Melville come the juxtaposed tales, `The Paradise of Bachelors' and the `Tartarus of Maids' of§which Oates says, `Only Melville could have fashioned out of `real' events ... such harrowing and dreamlike allegorical fiction.' From Flannery O'Connor we find `A Late Encounter with the Enemy', and from John Cheever, `The Death of Justina', one of Cheever's own favourites.§The reader will also delight in the range of authors found here, from Charles W. Chesnutt, to William Carlos Williams. Contemporary artists abound, including Bharati Mukherjee and Amy Tan, Alice Adams and David Leavitt, Bobbie Ann Mason and Tim O'Brien, Louise Erdich and John Edgar Wideman. Oates provides fascinating introductions to each writer, blending biographical information with her own trenchant observation about their work, plus a long introductory essay, in which she offers the fruits§of years of reflection on a genre in which she herself is a master.

(Applause Books). Groucho Marx was a comic genius who starred on stage and in film, radio, and television. But he was also a gifted writer the author of a play, two screenplays, seven books, and over 100 articles and essays. This newly expanded collection presents the best of Groucho's short comic pieces, written over a period of more than fifty years between 1919 and 1973 for the New York Times, the New Yorker, the Saturday Evening Post, Variety, the Hollywood Reporter, and other newspapers and magazines. Here is the one and only Groucho on his family, his days in vaudeville, his career, World War II, taxes, and other topics from his love of a good cigar to his chronic insomnia, from "Why Harpo Doesn't Talk" to "The Truth About Captain Spalding." The familiar irreverence, wordplay, and a dash of self-deprecation bring Groucho's wisecracking voice to life in these pages, firmly establishing him as one of the world's great humorists. Groucho Marx and Other Short Stories and Tall Tales (a title of Groucho's own choosing) is essential reading for Marx Brothers fans, and a hilarious and nostalgic trip through the twentieth century.
