Author: Thomas Bastard

It has been said that where there is no sense of danger, there no dangerneed be feared; so the writer of this Autobiography ventures, despite anyarray of critics, to present the sketch of his life to a public whoseindulgence he craves.

Author: Mary Roberts Rinehart

Language: English

Published: 1910

Politics and Poker... that was the occupation and the preoccupation of the members of the White Cat Club. Once on the inside, a man's business was his own and nobody gave a damn if he was the mayor of the town or the champion poolplayer of the first ward. It was a noisy, crowded, masculine kind of retreat, which explained the sign that hung proudly over the door: "The White Cat Never Sleeps." But murder entered the wakeful chambers of the White Cat and its victims slept the deep, long sleep of the dead.

Author: Oscar Wilde

Language: English

Where the Path Breaks

2010.09.28

Author: Charles de Créspigny

Language: English

Published: 1916

An extraordinary tour de force of fiction. An intense, swiftly moving love-story that begins on a battlefield in France and ends in peace and happiness in America's Far West. Woven through and through the novel, always felt, but only as a help to the story, is a philosophy rich in the hope that men hold dearest.




Oscar Wilde: Art and Morality

2010.09.10

A Defence of 'The Picture of Dorian Gray'

Author: Stuart Mason

Language: English

Published: 1908

On the whole, an artist in England gains something by being attacked. His individuality is intensified. He becomes more completely himself. Of course, the attacks are very gross, very impertinent, and very contemptible. But then no artist expects grace from the vulgar mind, or style from the suburban intellect.

Language: English

Published: 2010

In an alternate present the minds of teen offenders are uploaded into computers for rehabilitation--a form of virtual wilderness therapy. Zach is a homo cognoscens, one of the new humans who can navigate the Fulgrid. Though still a high school student, he is indentured to the Fulgur Corporation as a counsellor. Laura is a homo sapiens.

Careers of Danger and Daring

2010.07.13

(image)

Author: Cleveland Moffett

Language: English

Published: 1898

In "Careers of Danger and Daring" the author has first of all won the distinction of getting away from the commonplace, for one who reads Mr. Moffett's recounting of the curious things he has learned of ten curious careers will have added in large measure to one's knowledge of the lives of workers with few of whom the ordinary citizen is ever brought into contact. The author's friends among the steeple climbers, deep sea divers, and other danger courting workers, all have good stories to tell that go well with the author's interesting descriptions of their careers. It is a book any boy of pluck and nerve will cherish.

Language: English

Published: 1910

How her grief is no only assuaged, but how she finds a new life, rich in possibilities, in the mothering of the homesick lads and in the molding of their careers, is told by Miss Furman with a wealth of feeling. The book is at times as genuinely humorous as it is touching and all through it there is evidenced the hand of one who knows whereof she speaks.

Doctor Syn

A Smuggler Tale of the Romney Marsh

Author: Russell Thorndyke

Language: English

Published: 1915

When this story opens there were two things of paramount interest in Dymchurch. One was Romney Marsh - visited, so the villagers whispered, by flaming Demon Riders and Jack O'Lanterns. The other was Doctor Syn, their genial, kindly, well-loved vicar. To be sure it was a little incongruous at times to hear this godly man break out into the most ungodly refrain from the favourite song of the redoubtable Clegg. But Clegg had been hanged as a pirate - so it was said - full ten years before. How Syn's real identity was finally revealed when the King's men came to Dymchurch, and the strange part he played in the mystery of Romney Marsh, make this a decidedly unusual and thrilling story.




Toilers of the Sea

2010.05.13

(image)

Author: Victor Hugo

Language: English

Published: 1878

The Toilers of the Sea should have been a chapter in Les Miserables--an episode in the life of Jean Valjean, a few strokes of the pen would have made the necessary alterations, since the similarity between the characters of the two men, the convict and the fisherman, is so marked that the one immediately suggests the other. The same herculean strength, the same melancholy amounting to misanthropy, the same manner of life so far as circumstances would permit, the same singleness of purpose thwarted by no self-sacrifice however great, the same kindness of heart, whether exhibited in the princely benevolence of the wealthy manufacturer or in the humble endeavors of the Guernsey fisherman to rescue from the cruel boys the nest homes of the birds of the cliff".

(image)

Author: Thomas Hughes

Language: English

Published: 1857

Nothing need be said of the merits of this acknowledged on all hands to be one of the very best boy’s books ever written. "Tom Brown" does not reach the point of ideal excellence. He is not a faultless boy; but his boy-faults, by the way they are corrected, help him in getting on. The more of such reading can be furnished the better. There will never be too much of it.
