Excerpt: Disneyland Records is the original name of the Walt Disney Company's record company. After long associations with primarily RCA Victor Records, with a few select titles on Columbia, both dating back to the 1930s, Disneyland Records was established in 1956 with its first release entitled A Child's Garden of Verses. Most of its output is mainly children's music and recordings, mostly based on (or around) Disney cartoons, however the label has also produced several recordings that do not involve any Disney characters, such as the "Children's Favorites" series. An extensive catalog is listed below, including read along records, full length albums, singles and EP's on all three speeds traversing many children's classical and jazz titles ensued before the company changed its name to Walt Disney Records in 1989. Six-inch 78-RPM Disneyland records were made from 1956 to 1966 by A.A. Records, (later a part of Pickwick International) who had made Little Golden Records from 1948 to 1968. The Mickey Mouse Club records were made of orange styrene, and other Disney titles were molded on black styrene, often with a teal-blue label. These discs were created in a double-inventory with their 45-RPM counterparts and played with the same LP needle used for 45's. The only difference was up in the corner of the sleeve, the words `78 RPM' were either printed on the sleeve itself, or in earlier editions, as the call numbers for the titles were the same, a sticker saying `78 RPM' was pasted over the ...

Collected Supernatural and Weird Fiction of Helena P. Blavatsky Leonaur Ltd

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Strange tales from a Russian Occultist The late nineteenth century saw a rise in the number of people who became interested in the occult and among them were a few who became notable practitioners. Aleister Crowley, for example, became infamous as a member of 'the Golden Dawn' and founder of the religion 'Thelema', and the author of this book, Russian born, Madam Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, became a proponent of Theosophy-a religion of archaic wisdom. Her most famous written work on the subject is 'The Secret Doctrine'. Fortunately, for enthusiasts of the other worldly and supernatural fiction, Blavatsky utilised her more earnest pursuits to provide inspiration and background for some highly entertaining tales of ghosts, horrors and weird occurrences. Her single small volume of supernatural fiction, 'Nightmare Tales', was published in 1892, but there remained a small number of uncollected stories published in magazines of the day. This Leonaur original collects all of these short stories as well as a chapter from her book, 'From the Caves and Jungles of Hindostan', which has in the past been included in anthologies of supernatural tales, to create the most complete collection of Madam Blavatsky's fiction ever published. Leonaur editions are newly typeset and are not facsimiles; each title is available in softcover and hardback with dustjacket; our hardbacks are cloth bound and feature gold foil lettering on their spines and fabric head and tail bands.

Nuggets of History iUniverse

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

So often readers lay aside the long story of history but will read 2-4 paragraphs about a historical subject. With that in mind, the author approached an editor at the Hampton Chronicle, Ray Baltes, with an idea for writing short stories on the history of Franklin County. He was receptive to the idea, and said the Chronicle would publish them. So this book isn't one long continuous story, but is, instead, a collection of short stories-Nuggets of History about the settling and growth of rural Franklin County, Iowa. They range from the day the first settlers walked into the area; through its progress to the prosperous farming community it is today. As the author collected accounts from her mother, and her own experiences of being raised during the Great Depression, these stories capture a picture of the growth and changes of one small area of Iowa.

Tyrannia Small Beer Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

In these 11 stories--and the weird spaces in between--people of all kinds struggle to free themselves from conventions and constraints both personal and political. Places ranging from the farthest reaches of outer space to the creepy abandoned farmhouse in the middle of nowhere become battlegrounds for change and growth--sometimes at a massive cost. Tyranny takes many forms, some more subtle than others, and it is up to the reader to travel along with the characters, who improvise and create their own renditions of freedom. Poet and fiction writer Alan DeNiro uses language like no other. His second collection of stories explores our relationship to art, history, and looks at how everyday events, personal and political, never cease to leave us off balance. Alan DeNiro was born in Erie, Pennsylvania. He graduated from the College of Wooster with a B.A. in English and the University of Virginia with an M.F.A. in creative writing. He is the author of the story collection Skinny Dipping in the Lake of the Dead (Crawford Award finalist; Frank O'Connor Award longlist) and the novel Total Oblivion: More or Less. His short stories have appeared in One Story, Asimov's, Santa Monica Review, Interfictions, and elsewhere. He lives outside of St. Paul, Minnesota with his wife Kristin Livdahl and their children.

Novels by Richard Adams (Book Guide) Books on Demand

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Source: Wikipedia. Commentary (novels not included). Pages: 29. Chapters: Watership Down, Bunnies & Burrows, List of Watership Down characters, Shardik, Maia, The Plague Dogs, Traveller, Bright Eyes, Tales from Watership Down, Lapine language, The Girl in a Swing. Excerpt: Watership Down is a heroic fantasy novel about a small group of rabbits, written by English author Richard Adams. Although the animals in the story live in their natural environment, they are anthropomorphised, possessing their own culture, language (Lapine), proverbs, poetry, and mythology. Evoking epic themes, the novel recounts the rabbits' odyssey as they escape the destruction of their warren to seek a place in which to establish a new home, encountering perils and temptations along the way. The novel takes its name from the rabbits' destination, Watership Down, a hill in the north of Hampshire, England, near the area where Adams grew up. The story is based on a collection of tales that Adams told to his young children to pass the time on trips to the countryside. Published in 1972, Watership Down was Richard Adams' first novel, and is by far his most successful to date. Although it was initially rejected by thirteen publishers before eventually being accepted by Rex Collings Ltd, Watership Down has never been out of print, and was the recipient of several prestigious awards. Adapted into an acclaimed classic film and a television series, it is Penguin Books' best-selling novel of all time. In 1996, Adams published Tales from Watership Down, a follow-up collection of 19 short stories about El-ahrairah and the rabbits of the Watership Down warren. Watership Down began as a story Richard Adams told to his two daughters, Juliet and Rosamond, on a long car journey; in an interview, Adams said he "began telling the story of the rabbits ... improvised off the top of my head, as we were driving along." He based the struggles of the animals in the story on the struggles he and his friends encountered during the Battle of Oosterbeek, Arnhem, the Netherlands in 1944. His daughters insisted he write it down "they were very, very persistent" and though he initially delayed, he eventually began writing in the evenings, completing it eighteen months later.

Slow Learner is a compilation of early stories written between 1959 and 1964, before Pynchon achieved recognition as a prominent writer for his 1963 novel, V and containing a revelatory essay on his early influences and writing. The collection consists of five short stories: 'The Small Rain', 'Lowlands', 'Entropy', 'Under the Rose', and 'The Secret Integration', as well as an introduction written by Pynchon himself for the 1984 publication. The five stories were originally published individually in various literary magazines but in 1984, after Pynchon had achieved greater recognition, Slow Learner was published to collect and copyright the stories into one volume. The introduction also offers a rare insight into Pynchon's own views on his work and influences.

Enda Walsh Plays NICK HERN BOOKS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The second collection of plays from the multi-award-winning Irish playwright. This volume of remarkable plays charts the development of one of the most strikingly original playwrights in contemporary theatre. It collects together four full-length plays - three of which were produced by Galway's Druid Theatre Company, three of which were performed at the Edinburgh Fringe, and two of which transferred to London's National Theatre - along with two fascinating short plays and a Foreword by the author. The Walworth Farce (2006) is a madcap yet tender play about what can happen when we become stuck in the stories we tell about our lives. The New Electric Ballroom (2008) is a dark, glitter-dusted fable of the emotionally stultifying effects of small-town life. In a savage and riveting take on the classic Greek myth of Odysseus's wife, Penelope (2010) sees four ridiculous men facing their inevitable deaths, and playing for an unwinnable love. Ballyturk (2014) saw Walsh reuniting with actor Cillian Murphy after Disco Pigs and Misterman for a jaw-droppingly physical play in which the lives of two men unravel over the course of ninety minutes. Also included in this volume are two short plays, My Friend Duplicity (2010), which went on to inspire Ballyturk, and Room 303 (2011). 'One of the most fiercely individual voices in the theatre today' New York Times 'Enda Walsh makes his own distinctive stage music in the fury of his writing talent and the irresistible surge of his blatant theatricality' Independent

Heaven of Mercury W W NORTON & CO

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Brad Watson's first novel has been eagerly awaited since his breathtaking, award-winning debut collection of short stories, Last Days of the Dog-Men. Here, he fulfills that literary promise with a humorous and jaundiced eye. Finus Bates has loved Birdie Wells since the day he saw her do a naked cartwheel in the woods in 1916. Later he won her at poker, lost her, then nearly won her again after the mysterious poisoning of her womanizing husband. Does Vish, the old medicine woman down in the ravine, hold the key to Birdie's elusive character? Or does Parnell, the town undertaker, whose unspeakable desires bring lust for life and death together? Or does the secret lie with some other colorful old-timer in Mercury, Mississippi, not such a small town anymore? With "graceful, patient, insightful and hilarious" prose (USA Today), Brad Watson chronicles Finus's steadfast devotion and Mercury's evolution from a sleepy backwater to a small city. With this "tragicomic story of missed opportunities and unjust necessities" (Fred Chappell), "Southern storytelling is alive and well in Watson's capable hands" (Kirkus Reviews starred review). "His work may remind readers of William Faulkner, Toni Morrison, or Flannery O'Connor, but has a power and a charm all its own, more pellucid than the first, gentler than the second, and kinder than the third" (Baltimore Sun)."

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Deep in the landlocked heart of the Midwest, the characters in The Spoils are drowning under the weight of masculinity, paralyzed in the grip of things left unsaid. These men are broken and breaking, struggling to reckon with the decisions they've made and those they have yet to face. Set mostly in and around Kansas, the stories in this powerful collection explore how men perform, in their jobs and personal lives, and investigate the gray area between doing what's best for oneself and acting a part to make others happy. A man questions whether he should leave his drug-addicted girlfriend and her son or stay, sacrificing his own well-being to be the boy's father. Fed up with the role of the stooge, a Washington Generals player takes his A-game to the Harlem Globetrotters and has to face the unforeseen consequences. A rookie prison guard sent to procure a death row inmate's final meal commits a small, subversive act of humanity. In a world where the line between right and wrong is constantly shifting, some struggle to do the right thing, while others eschew the line altogether and deal with the sometimes violent repercussions. The Spoils examines these difficult choices and will appeal to readers of literary fiction and short stories, especially readers of fiction based in the Midwest.

I hope the reader will be indulgent toward the extreme dispersion of themes, tones, and angles of approach that he will find in this collection. My justification is: the 'pieces' are situated in an arc of time that is close to a quarter of a century, the time of my almost total fidelity to LA STAMPA: and in twenty-five years many things change, inside us and around us. Furthermore, they are conditioned by my intrinsic libertinage, in part willed, in part due to the itinerary fate has reserved for me; I've drunk at various founts and breathed different airs, some salutary, others quite polluted ...I'm a normal man with a good memory who fell into a maelstrom and got out of it more by luck than by virtue, and who from that time on has preserved a certain curiosity about maelstroms large and small, metaphorical and actual. From Primo Levi's introduction to The Mirror Maker, his eloquent, witty and wise collection of short stories and essays.

Madelaine sat down at the inlaid table and looked into the eyes of her confidante. A smile was on her friends face, but tears glistened in her eyes. They had both realized there was no other choice, but goodbyes are as small deaths, and the grief at the table was tangible.A dark dance in a lush garden of prose overshadowed by luminous specters clothed in the guise of short stories and poetry, "The Lilitu" are more than the children of the Hebrew Goddess Lilith-an outcast of Eden. Author Sundari Prasad's prose not only resonates, but it lives and breathes in these pages. Much like demons that tell their tales, these words want to be read.Torrid fantasies and nightmares come to life with full force, from a vampire's memories of times long gone, to a woman's romanticism of her harsh abuse at the hands of her husband. "The Lilitu" is a collection of deep, haunting, and wanton spirits of writing that will not be easily forgotten.
