Walk with us on this fine summer's eve through a land of fantasy and terror, of magic and love, a land where dragons fly and the devil only wants to talk, where fairies steal the hearts of unwary men and a cook feeds the fates. Walk with us on this fine summer's eve, as we show you our dreams.Front Cover image by Darren Britton.
In the Lovecraftian universe there exists many terrible and horrifying things, from extraterrestrial gods and ancient secrets to zealous cults, supernatural curses, and beyond. Perhaps some of the most terrifying imagery, however, originates from dreams or nightmares. Part of our "Fantasy and Horror Classics" imprint, this book contains a collection of Lovecraft's short horror stories all connected through the common theme of dreams. The collection includes: “The White Ship”, “The Doom That Came to Sarnath”, “Polaris”, “Nyarlathotep”, “The Cats of Ulthar”, “The Nameless City”, “Ex Oblivione”, “Celephaïs”, “Hypnos”, “What the Moon Brings”, “The Hound” ,”The Outsider”, “The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath”, “The Strange High House in the Mist”, “The Dreams in the Witch House”, and more. Other notable works by this author include: “At the Mountains of Madness”, “The Rats in the Walls”, and “The Shadow Over Innsmouth”. Howard Phillips Lovecraft (1890–1937) was an American writer of supernatural horror fiction. Though his works remained largely unknown and did not furnish him with a decent living, Lovecraft is today considered to be among the most significant writers of supernatural horror fiction of the twentieth century. Read & Co. is publishing this classic collection of short stories now in a new edition complete with a dedication by George Henry Weiss.
This collection of 9 short stories and novellas, including “Snakes in the Grass” and “Grasshopper Creek”, is written in such detail and strength the reader will become immersed in each story and stretch their imagination, running wild as they are taken on a journey from the dismal swamps of the Florida Everglades, where Skeeter Fontain transitions from a poacher of wild animals to becoming instrumental in saving them, to the mountains of Grasshopper Greek, Montana, where the love of a young couple flourishes as their common love of horses takes them in divergent paths. The reader will travel to the plains of Oklahoma during the harsh times of the ‘Dust Bowl’ and feel the heartache suffered by so many, to the heart of North Korea where, years after the Korean conflict, an army corpsman secretly returns to save a fellow soldier, and into the wilds of the Canadian wilderness trying to understand a strange bond between a man and wolf. These incredible stories are filled with intriguing and interesting characters, will reach readers of all ages, teaching important values, morals, and lessons of life all can cherish.
This is a book of short stories of everyday human emotional experiences. Stories of profound loss. Stories of great friendships. Stories of growing old with a dog, of going to war, and of course, stories of deep romantic love. I hope the stories encourage the reader to do some introspection on what it means to be human. I believe the poems, like all art, will mean more to some than to others.
In his cookbook Recipes and Short Stories for the Single Man, one-time divorcee Norman McGuire shares delicious and easy-to-prepare recipes for men who are tired of the cycle of eating out and gaining weight, and want to cook healthy, comforting meals in less than thirty minutes. Accompanied by humorous and entertaining personal anecdotes that detail his life and his motivation for preparing home-cooked meals, McGuire relies on his own personal experience in the kitchen to offer a potpourri of recipes for simple dinners sure to fill up a hungry man, such as stuffed jumbo biscuits, pizza burgers, brisket, pepper steak, and beef roast. This original compilation has solutions for every meal, as McGuire provides insight into how to cook a scrumptious breakfast of bacon, eggs, hash browns, and biscuits and gravy. From chili fries to cabbage and bacon to an unforgettable dessert comprised of a cup of flour, a cup of sugar, and a cup of milk, McGuire encourages other men to leave their fears of cooking behind and learn to enjoy their time in the kitchen preparing tasty meals for not only themselves, but for those they love.
Twelve-Furlong Mile and Other Works of Short Fiction is a varied and unique collection of ten stories built upon likable, easy-to-relate-to characters that stray from their comfortable, everyday surroundings and find themselves in situations filled with humor, romance, and conflict. In the short story "Twelve-Furlong Mile," two young men take their annual trip to Las Vegas, eager to escape the rigors of their daily lives. The "End of Latency" and "Summer Trade" are science fiction tales, refreshing in their approach to the genre. "Ken and the Princess" and "Friendly Wager" are about the pursuit of true love--obtainable--but always at a price. "The Adventures of Dan Wetmeyerbent" is a story about the trials of an eighth-grader assigned to write a column for his school newspaper. Perhaps the most touching story, "The Wingman," brings a whole new perspective to the fabled, trusty sidekick designation for one man at an out-of-town work seminar. The stories--and their surprise endings--are a reflection of the author Steve Scott's appreciation for the original television show, The Twilight Zone. The twisting plot lines, while always believable, will, at the same time, bowl you over.
