📒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.

📒Among The Shadows ✍ Demitria Lunetta
📝Among the Shadows Book Synopsis : Even the lightest hearts have shaded corners to hide the black thoughts that come at night. Experience the darker side of YA as 13 authors explore the places that others prefer to leave among the shadows. You've been there. It's dark and you're comfortable. You're just about to fall asleep when you can't help but wonder if maybe tonight the thing you've always been sure exists will finally find you. The best short stories stick with you, and the stories in this book especially, are meant to cast long shadows. The authors who contributed to this anthology are not only familiar with what lurks among the shadows, we choose to spend time there. Our monsters all live in different places--under beds, beside peaceful streams, inside ourselves, down mine shafts, in the sky. The darkness you'll find in these pages knows no boundaries, so it's only fitting that these stories cover many genres. Reality can be just as terrifying as anything our imaginations conjure, which is why the darkness in these pages isn't relegated just to flights of fancy or the paranormal. In choosing such a wide range of stories, our hope is that everyone will find something to make them clutch their bedcovers a little closer. In realistic contemporary stories from Joelle Charbonneau and Kelly Fiore, depression, addiction, obsession, and isolation are all the stuff of nightmares. Other stories by Justina Ireland, Phoebe North, and Geoffrey Girard straddle the line, making us question what is real and what is false. Mindy McGinnis explores the question of not knowing yourself, while Kate Karyus Quinn speculates on the effect of learning that every terrible thing that's ever happened to you has been manufactured for the entertainment of others. Demitria Lunetta and Gretchen McNeil each take a closer, horrific look at human nature. Lenore Applehans delves into a post-apocalyptic future, while R.C. Lewis discovers the darkness that lurks on another planet in her science fiction narrative. Then of course there are the paranormal stories from Beth Revis and Lydia Kang, each digging into the many types of monsters that might wait for us in the dark. Overall, you'll find a wide range of horrors represented, including demons, aliens, and one of the most frightening creatures ever--human beings. So set aside an hour or two, switch on some lights and come join us... among the shadows.
📒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."

📒 ✍ Чарльз Диккенс
📝 Book Synopsis : Роман Чарльза Диккенса «Повесть о двух городах» – один из самых популярных англоязычных романов – стал бестселлером задолго до возникновения самого термина. Только на языке оригинала напечатано более двухсот миллионов экземпляров.Это история неистовых страстей и захватывающих приключений в «эпоху перемен», которыми отозвалась в двух великих городах Лондоне и Париже Великая французская революция. Камера в Бастилии и гильотина в ту пору были столь же реальны, как посиделки у камина и кружевные зонтики, а любовь и упорная ненависть, трогательная преданность, самопожертвование и гнусное предательство составили разные грани мира диккенсовских персонажей.
