📒The Uncanny Reader ✍ Marjorie Sandor
📝The Uncanny Reader Book Synopsis : From the deeply unsettling to the possibly supernatural, these thirty-one border-crossing stories from around the world explore the uncanny in literature, and delve into our increasingly unstable sense of self, home, and planet. The Uncanny Reader: Stories from the Shadows opens with "The Sand-man," E.T.A. Hoffmann's 1817 tale of doppelgangers and automatons—a tale that inspired generations of writers and thinkers to come. Stories by 19th and 20th century masters of the uncanny—including Edgar Allan Poe, Franz Kafka, and Shirley Jackson—form a foundation for sixteen award-winning contemporary authors, established and new, whose work blurs the boundaries between the familiar and the unknown. These writers come from Egypt, France, Germany, Japan, Poland, Russia, Scotland, England, Sweden, the United States, Uruguay, and Zambia—although their birthplaces are not always the terrains they plumb in their stories, nor do they confine themselves to their own eras. Contemporary authors include: Chris Adrian, Aimee Bender, Kate Bernheimer, Jean-Christophe Duchon-Doris, Mansoura Ez-Eldin, Jonathon Carroll, John Herdman, Kelly Link, Steven Millhauser, Joyce Carol Oates, Yoko Ogawa, Dean Paschal, Karen Russell, Namwali Serpell, Steve Stern and Karen Tidbeck.

Or who could forget stunt horses being paraded through the living room to settle a drunken bet? To relay these stories, one would think, you just can't write this stuff! But they actually happened.

📒Abilene Stories ✍ Glenn Dromgoole
📝Abilene Stories Book Synopsis : Although Abilene has long lived in the shadows of the literary limelight, it has not been for a lack of good writing, good writers, and interesting stories. Now coming out of the shadows, "Abilene Stories: From Then to Now" offers a community scrapbook, a gathering of the civic congregation where more than a hundred friends have stopped by for a visit. The laughter is heavy and the smiles broad as stories are told and memories jogged. Pull up a chair next to Katharyn Duff as she shares a few historical chestnuts. Give your attention to Miss Tommie Clack for a ringside seat to the past. Step into the poetry of those who know this place well and a few who just observed it in passing. Appreciate the sharp insight of Pulitzer-nominated Frank Grimes, and listen for the personal element which A.C. Greene wove into nearly all of his writings. The collection begins with stories from before Abilene was Abilene and proceeds chronologically and topically to the present day with such pieces as "Let Them Eat Cactus," "A Hanging in Abilene," "Too Much Jazz and Not Enough Jesus," "How Camp Barkeley Shaped Abilene," "Alligator on the Loose," "Howitzer on the Hill," "Circlin' Mack's," "The Crape Myrtle Sex Scandal," and "The Last Day at Harold's." If Abilene is your hometown, or ever has been--that place where you feel completely comfortable, where you know the routine and breathe easy, where the sunset is a familiar hue--"Abilene Stories: From Then to Now" is an invitation to sit down and spend a little time in what A. C. Greene called "The Village of My Heart."
