Book Summary:

Set in a unique and isolated community, The Master of the Greylands: A Novel follows a small, private village by the sea and its occupants. Owned by the Castlemaine family, the community is old and quirky, with haunted ruins and gothic aesthetic. Despite the seemingly dreary atmosphere, the people of the Greylands are content and comfortable, until Peter Castlemaine, a leading member of the Greylands’ social scene, makes a grave financial mistake due to his own flaws. Stuck in an undesirable position, Peter realizes that his error could potentially harm the whole town. Hoping to keep his situation a secret for as long as possible, Peter confers with his closest friends, trying to find ways to delay the inevitable. Though it never received the same amount of attention of her other novels, The Master of the Greylands: A Novel by Mrs. Henry Wood is among the prolific author’s few gothic works. Featuring a clever and compelling novel set in a unique setting with life-like characters, The Master of the Greylands: A Novel captivates its audience, engrossing them in the story of a man’s foolish mistake. Embellished with an intricate amount of detail, Wood describes the community of the Greylands with vivid prose and explores the characters of the Greylands with great care. First published in 1872, The Master of the Greylands: A Novel remains to memorize readers with the spirit of the obscure setting and characters. This edition of The Master of the Greylands: A Novel by Mrs. Henry Wood now features an eye-catching new cover design and is printed in a font that is both modern and readable. With these accommodations, this edition of The Master of the Greylands: A Novel creates an accessible and pleasant reading experience for modern audiences while restoring the original mastery and drama of Mrs. Henry Wood’s work.

Book Summary:

A disarming, lyrical hybrid of fiction and autobiography, this forgotten masterpiece of post-war English fiction follows a small boy through his First World War childhood and teenage years on the Kentish coast, then into the army and frontline service in the Second World War. Obsessed by his strange twin passions for orchids and for fireworks, the author-narrator paints a haunting portrait of a childhood and adulthood interleaved with one another in a near-mystical rural idyll. Defined by his unspoken homosexuality, the books capture the unfolding of a melancholy, often painfully sensitive male consciousness. First published in the late 1940s as three separate but interlinked volumes – “The Military Orchid”; “A Mine of Serpents” and “The Goose Cathedral” – The Orchid Trilogy conjures up a rapturous, fantastical portrait of England at war and peace in the 20th century. Witty, subtle and deceptively simple, this unjustly neglected classic that has yet to be surpassed in its exploration of the magical world of childhood. One of those too-rare books whose enjoyability makes it seem too short – Elizabeth Bowen It is a kind of collage of sharply drawn bits of real life, excellently described and artistically arranged – Stephen Spender Reminiscence and reflection and description are woven together to make a curious and fascinating tapestry – David Cecil Mr. Brooke's finely shaped prose, his wit, percipience, and liveliness in the description of people, places, and states of mind are a rare delight – The Scotsman A sad, funny, densely detailed yet continuously readable experience – The Observer One of the most exciting creative artists of our time and one who will consistently evade all the literary categories – John Pudney

Best known as the creator of the consulting detective par excellence Sherlock Holmes, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930) was a man of wide-ranging interests and talents, and his literary output went far beyond his Holmes and Watson stories.

This collection features the account of Watson's first meeting with Holmes from A Study in Scarlet, an account of the dinosaurs inhabiting The Lost World, tales of Doyle's Napoleonic hero Brigadier Gerard, a condemnation of Belgium's exploitation of the Congo, and the complete text of his apocalyptic book The Poison Belt, in addition to several other stories and excerpts.

Book Summary:

Sadia has been betrayed. Get in. Get the data threads. Get out. It’s a standard job. But when Sadia arrives, she finds her contact dead and the only ones who could be responsible are from her own faction. Unable to trust anyone, she goes looking for answers. When she witnesses another unjust death, something inside her awakens. A power takes control of her body and in front of millions of witnesses, Sadia brings the dead man back to life. Suddenly, she’s the most sought after woman in Novus City. And while some factions want to make her a martyr, others want to dissect her. Or worse. Hunted by every faction, every corporation, and every authority, Sadia flees. If she can escape the city, she may survive long enough to learn the secrets of her past. If she fails, instead of giving life back, her power will be used to take it away. She will become the instrument of annihilation, and no one will be left alive to remember Hollowfall.

Book Summary:

New York Times Notable Book: “A well-told business yarn . . . A fly-on-the-wall look at how eBay got to be eBay.” —Chicago Tribune When Pierre Omidyar launched a clunky website from a spare bedroom over Labor Day weekend of 1995, he wanted to see if he could use the Internet to create a perfect market. He never guessed his old-computer parts and Beanie Baby exchange would revolutionize the world of commerce. In this fascinating book, Adam Cohen, the first journalist ever to get full access to the company, tells the remarkable story of eBay’s rise. He describes how eBay built the most passionate community ever to form in cyberspace and forged a business that triumphed over larger, better-funded rivals. And he explores the ever-widening array of enlistees in the eBay revolution, from a stay-at-home mom who had to rent a warehouse for her thriving business selling bubble-wrap on eBay to the young MBA who started eBay Motors (which within months of its launch was on track to sell $1 billion in cars a year), to collectors nervously bidding thousands of dollars on antique clothing-irons. “Skillfully synthesizes the story of eBay’s corporate evolution with profiles of more peripheral figures.” —The Washington Post Book World “The definitive history of eBay—a strange and exhilarating tale.” —Jeffrey Toobin, New York Times-bestselling author of True Crimes and Misdemeanors

Book Summary:

These early works by various authors were originally published in the late 19th 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 II.' contains a collection of short stories that include 'The Messenger' by Robert W. Chambers, 'The Brazilian Cat' by Arhur Conan Doyle, 'A Relic of the Pliocene' by Jack London, 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.

Book Summary:

Moving house links many lives—and sets off an unexpected series of events—in this compelling tale from “a novelist of the highest quality” (The Independent on Sunday). What makes a house a home are the stories of the people who live there. And for the briefest of moments—when a house changes hands—the worlds of the sellers and buyers collide . . . A woman too old and frail to live on her own sells her apartment to a middle-aged couple forced to downsize due to financial woes. Their modest house proves the perfect place for an upper-middle-class family to start over after the son is accused of a dreadful crime. The home they flee catches the eye of a washed-up pop star who can no longer afford his country estate, one that has been secretly purchased to hide a scandalous royal dalliance. With her trademark wit and verve, Gillian White shows the unexpected ways we can affect each other’s lives when one FOR SALE sign sets off a chain reaction . . .

Book Summary:

In 1898, The Strand Magazine, one of the most influential publications of the Victorian fin de siècle, deemed best-selling author and editor L.T. Meade a literary “celebrity” and “one of the most industrious writers of modern fiction.” Beginning in 1893 and continuing into the first decade of the twentieth century, Meade’s medical mysteries and thrilling tales of dangerous criminal women appeared in The Strand. There they competed successfully not only with Arthur Conan Doyle’s Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, but also with the works of the most popular writers of the day. The Sorceress of the Strand is one of Meade’s most compelling mysteries, and the first to feature the seductive criminal genius Madame Sara. The Sorceress of the Strand is accompanied in this edition by three other popular stories featuring powerful female criminal protagonists, from gang leaders to spies and terrorists. The historical appendices expand on the stories’ themes of criminality, gender, and political activism. Twenty-eight of the original periodical illustrations are included.

Book Summary:

Fairy tales, like music and poetry, are a language known to every soul no matter the culture, time, or place. Travel 'over the hills and faraway,' with these varied tales of Faerie and for a little while reclaim the wonder and joy peculiar to a childlike heart. This is a book of contrasts, a stewpot wherein anything and everything might lurk with each spoonful a different taste: high adventure and complete nonsense, serious quests and silly meanderings, real poetry and doggerel verse, one moment grave as death and blithe as a lark the next. As in life, the world of story and Faerie in particular is a varicolored, ever shifting landscape of joy and sorrow, laughter and tears, adventure and quietude. Each story is preceded by a bit of verse or a quotation that may or may not be relevant, many of them are inspired by old nursery rhymes as one wonders what came of the original tale beyond the little passed down from time immemorial to the wondering hearts of children through the ages. Life is a story and with these bits and pieces of story, this crazy quilt of whimsy as it were, perhaps it will add a little more wonder to your own.

Book Summary:

This work brings together eight Arthur Conan Doyle mystery classics. When first gathered into one volume in 1908, the book was entitled Round the Fire Stories, since the author recommended that they be read ideally "'round the fire upon a winter's night." According to Barzun & Taylor in A Catalogue of Crime, "As one reads 'The Man with the Watches,' 'The Lost Special,' 'The Jew's Breastplate,' 'The Black Doctor' and the rest, one marvels again at Doyle's natural gift of storytelling and one relishes his ingrained habit of giving clues, even when they serve narrative and are not to be used for ratiocination. These stories are worth reading even around a radiator."
