Cryptofiction - Volume I. - A Collection of Fantastical Short Stories of Sea Monsters, Were-Wolves, and Other Mysterious Creatures - Including Tales b Cryptofiction Classics

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

These early works by various authors were originally published between the late 16th century and early 20th century and we are now republishing them with a brand new introduction as part of our Cryptofiction Classics series. 'Cryptofiction - Volume I.' contains a collection of short stories that include 'The Mark of the Beast' by Rudyard Kipling, 'The Eyes of the Panther' by Ambrose Bierce, 'In the Avu Observatory' by H. G. Wells, and many other classic tales of strange creatures. The genre of cryptofiction has grown up in the shadow of its older brothers, science fiction and fantasy, and specialises in the concept of mysterious creatures such as sea monsters, wolf-men, and lost pre-historic creatures. Cryptofiction takes its name from another, non-literary practice: cryptozoology. This is generally regarded as a pseudoscience by mainstream scientists, relying as it does upon anecdotal, often unverifiable evidence. However, it still boasts many enthusiasts, and continues to exert considerable artistic allure. Cryptofiction is here to stay, and the stories in this collection map the development of a genre which is as strange as it is fascinating. The Cryptofiction Classics series contains a collection of wonderful stories from some of the greatest authors in the genre, including Ambrose Bierce, Arthur Conan Doyle, Robert Louis Stevenson, and Jack London. From its roots in cryptozoology, this genre features bizarre, fantastical, and often terrifying tales of mythical and legendary creatures. Whether it be giant spiders, werewolves, lake monsters, or dinosaurs, the Cryptofiction Classics series offers a fantastic introduction to the world of weird creatures in fiction.

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.

Oxford Book of American Short Stories Oxford University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

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.

Groucho Marx and Other Short Stories and Tall Tales Eurospan

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

(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.

Selected Short Stories of Faulkner - 2854205157

Selected Short Stories of Faulkner Random House Inc

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Faulkner was a master of the short story. Most of the pieces in this collection are drawn from the greatest period in his writing life, the fifteen or so years beginning in 1929, when he published "The Sound and the Fury." They explore many of the themes found in the novels and feature characters of small-town Mississippi life that are uniquely Faulkner's. In "A Rose for Emily," the first of his stories to appear in a national magazine, a straightforward, neighborly narrator relates a tale of love, betrayal, and murder. The vicious family of the Snopes trilogy turns up in "Barn Burning," about a son's response to the activities of his arsonist father. And Jason and Caddy Compson, two other inhabitants of Faulkner's mythical Yoknapatawpha County, are witnesses to the terror of the pregnant black laundress in "That Evening Sun." These and the other stories gathered here attest to the fact that Faulkner is, as Ralph Emerson so aptly notes, "the greatest artist the South has produced."
