Short Stories
Louisa May Alcott

Before she wrote "Little Women" one of the most popular books for children ever written Louisa May Alcott (1832 1888) served during the Civil War as a volunteer nurse in Washington, D.C. Drawing on that episode in her life, she produced "Hospital Sketches," a fictionalized account of her experiences at the military hospital in Georgetown.

This collection of five poignant short stories contains two pieces from "Hospital Sketches," published in 1863: "Obtaining Supplies," recounting the obstacles Alcott's fictionalized persona, Tribulation Periwinkle, faced in gaining her independence and getting to Washington; and "A Night," a moving account of her encounter with a dying soldier. Also included are "My Contraband," a gripping tale of vengeance involving a Civil War nurse, her Confederate patient and his former slave; "Happy Women," a fictionalized essay about four "spinsters" with a positive attitude toward their marital status; and "How I Went Out to Service," an autobiographical sketch of a young woman's undaunted pursuit of financial independence. Rich in their simple eloquence, these stories provide revealing glimpses of the concerns and literary techniques of one of America's most admired authors.

The Inferno
Dante Alighieri

Translated by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Enter the unforgettable world of "The Inferno" and travel with a pair of poets through nightmare landscapes of eternal damnation to the very core of Hell. The first of the three major canticles in "La divina commedia" (The Divine Comedy), this fourteenth-century allegorical poem begins Dante's imaginary journey from Hell to Purgatory to Paradise.

This acclaimed translation was rendered by the beloved nineteenth-century poet, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. A skilled linguist who taught modern languages at Harvard, Longfellow was among the first to make Dante s visionary poem accessible to American readers.

The Wizards of Magog
The Golden Tome 3
N. A. Preece

The third book in the series takes Jon and his friends on an unexpected and deadly journey. Forces beyond their control have combined to bring about the downfall of the Seers and all they stand for. Ebon has returned as if from the dead, only this time he has powerful allies, the Wizards of Magog; age-old enemies of the Seers.

Many leagues from their destination, Jon, Hamill and Auger Wind-rider have been thrown into a fight for survival, not only for their own lives but also those of the Seers, who keep the earth-power in balance between their world and that of the Wizards.

Manipulating the unsuspecting Ebon; the Wizards are determined to force their way back into the world of the Seers, from whence they were banished millennia ago.

Old and valued friends have sought Jon out and together they endeavour to combat the ever present influence of the malevolent seer. Sorrow at the loss of one of their little band weighs heavily on their minds as Ebon reaches out across the void that separates them, by means of the ‘Rod of Dread’. Creating a dark angel from Amethyst’s spent magic; Ebon seeks to rule over both worlds. Only Urim, the elusive and mysterious Seer, aided by the gallant group of friends, can stop him before the Wizards break through and wreak their revenge on the Seers.

A battle of wills plays out across the land as opposing forces face each other for control of the earth-born energy that gives the Seers their power.

Will Ebon at last be brought to account? Will Jon finally obtain that which he has sought after, to become a Seer? Who will prevail, the Seers or the Wizards?

In this chapter of history from the Chronicles of the Sight, we discover the truth behind the mystery that is the Seer, Urim and why he has used Jon as a pawn in his games of life and death.

Is he friend or foe...Time Will Tell.

Emma
Jane Austen

When her former governess finds happiness as the bride of a local widower, the brilliant and beautiful Emma Woodhouse one of Jane Austen's immortal creations flatters herself that she alone has secured the marriage and that she possesses a special talent for bringing lovers together. The young heiress next busies herself with finding a suitable husband for her friend and protege, Harriet Smith, setting off an entertaining sequence of comic mishaps and misunderstanding in this sparkling comedy of English-village romance. Beneath its considerable wit, the novel is also the story of a young woman's progress toward self-understanding.

"Emma" abounds in the droll character sketches at which Jane Austen excelled. In addition to the well-intentional heroine and her hypochondriacal father, the village of Highbury during the Regency period is populated by an amusing circle of friends and family kindhearted but tedious Miss Bates, a chatterbox spinster; ambitious Mr. Elton, a social-climbing parson; Frank Churchill, an enigmatic Romeo; Mr. Knightley, Emma's brother-in-law and the voice of her better nature; and a cluster of other finely drawn, unforgettable personalities.

The author's skill at depicting the follies of human nature in a manner both realistic and affectionate elevates this tale of provincial matchmaking to the heights of scintillating satire. A classic of English literature that has delighted readers since its 1816 publication, the novel is now available in this high-quality, inexpensive edition sure to charm a new generation.

Lady Susan
Jane Austen

Beautiful, flirtatious, and recently widowed, Lady Susan Vernon seeks a new and advantageous marriage for herself, and at the same time attempts to push her daughter into marriage with a man she detests. Through a series of crafty maneuvers, she fills her calendar with invitations for extended visits with unsuspecting relatives and acquaintances in pursuit of her grand plan.

As the plot unfolds, characters are revealed and the suspense builds all through letters exchanged among Lady Susan, her family, friends, and enemies. Described by her rivals as the "most accomplished coquette in England," amply endowed with "captivating deceit," Susan proves to be a remarkable figure, devoid of any redeeming qualities, whose intrigues and devious machinations ultimately lead to disastrous results.

The inspiration for the 2016 film "Love & Friendship" starring Chloe Sevigny and Kate Beckinsale, "Lady Susan" is a magnificently crafted (and frequently provocative) novel of Regency customs and manners, which has become a readers' favorite among the author's shorter works. Austen enthusiasts and students of English literature will delight in its wit and elegant expression."

Dot to Dot
A Novel
Kit Bakke

Dorothy Mary-Jane, or “Dot,” is an ordinary twelve-year-old girl with ordinary problems until she sees her mother killed by an errant red truck. The memories won’t go away; Dot lies down on her ratty Tinkerbell rug and swears she’ll never leave it. Her unpredictable Aunt Tab swoops Dot off to London, saying England is the place to sort out Dot’s life. Aunt Tab secretly packs Dot’s mother’s ashes. Dot packs Tinkerbell along with Dancing on the Edge, a silk collage embroidered by her mother with cryptic lessons from the three famous historical English women Dot is named after. Before she can discover their meaning, however, Dot is appalled by the preponderance of large red trucks in England, by Aunt Tab’s unexpected agenda with the ashes, and by an unpleasant but interesting English boy named Nick. Reading Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, Dot finds the past increasingly intrusive, Aunt Tab increasingly irritating and Nick increasingly present. Dot has to decide whether or not to run away with Nick. As she makes her decision, she packs the richness of the past into her own future without her mother.

Note: The three historical English women are Dorothy Wordsworth, sister and muse of the great Romantic poet William Wordsworth; Mary Wollstonecraft, author of the radical Vindication of the Rights of Woman and mother of Mary Shelley, author of Frankenstein and runaway teenage wife of the revolutionary poet Shelley; and Jane Austen, author of Pride and Prejudice and five other perennially popular novels.

Time travel is involved. Also tarot cards.

Hell's Corner
David Baldacci

John Carr, aka Oliver Stone-once the most skilled assassin his country ever had-stands in Lafayette Park in front of the White House, perhaps for the last time. The president has personally requested that Stone serve his country again on a high-risk, covert mission. Though he's fought for decades to leave his past career behind, Stone has no choice but to say yes.

Then Stone's mission changes drastically before it even begins. It's the night of a state dinner honoring the British prime minister. As he watches the prime minister's motorcade leave the White House that evening, a bomb is detonated in Lafayette Park, an apparent terrorist attack against both leaders. It's in the chaotic aftermath that Stone takes on a new, more urgent assignment: find those responsible for the bombing.

British MI-6 agent Mary Chapman becomes Stone's partner in the search for the unknown attackers. But their opponents are elusive, capable, and increasingly lethal; worst of all, it seems that the park bombing may just have been the opening salvo in their plan. With nowhere else to turn, Stone enlists the help of the only people he knows he can trust: the Camel Club. Yet that may be a big mistake.

In the shadowy worlds of politics and intelligence, there is no one you can really trust. Nothing is really what it seems to be. And Hell's Corner truly lives up to its name. This may be Oliver Stone's and the Camel Club's last stand.

The Overton Window
Glenn Beck

"From the "New York Times " #1 bestselling author of "The Christmas Sweater ", "An Inconvenient Book", "Common Sense", and "Arguing with Idiots " comes a heart-stopping new thriller about the consequences America will soon face if we continue to take our freedoms for granted."

Meet Noah Gardner, a twenty-something public relations executive who seems to have all the makings of a killer eHarmony profile. He's smart, handsome, well educated and, like many in the younger generation, far more concerned about the future of his social life than the future of his country.

But that all changes when Noah meets Molly Ross, a mailroom worker at his company who is consumed by the thought that the America we know is about to be lost forever. Noah doesn't believe much in conspiracy theories, or care much about the day-to-day happenings in Washington, but as events begin to unfold exactly the way Molly predicted, Noah becomes increasingly suspicious.

As the two ruling political parties do their best to keep Americans divided and distracted, a historic terrorist attack shakes the country to its core. As those around him panic, Noah realizes that a master plan to transform America is rapidly unfolding. Exposing that plan, and revealing the conspirators behind it, is the only way to save both the country and woman that he loves.

Seamlessly weaving together American history, frightening facts about America's present condition, and a fast-paced plot, Glenn's new thriller will educate, enlighten, and, most importantly, entertain his fans in a whole new way.

Shadowed
Stephanie Black


Gifted musician Catherine Clayton was born into a life of wealth and privilege. Following the death of her father, she makes a bold decision she hopes would make him proud: she’s using the family money to establish a music school and offer free lessons to the underprivileged. A providential suggestion from an old college friend leads Catherine to select Riley, New York, as the perfect location for her new school. Hit hard by the economic downturn, Riley personifies economic hardship: peeling paint, overgrown landscapes, and damaged buildings. But the damage runs much deeper than Catherine first realizes. Two years ago, Riley was rocked by weeks of vandalism followed by the brutal murder of beautiful elementary school secretary Olivia Perry. Everyone in town loved Olivia-but especially the two men with whom she was caught in a love triangle. Though the murder remains unsolved, Catherine receives ominous warnings that one of these men, Adam Becket, is responsible for the girl’s death. Unimpressed by the lack of evidence against him, Catherine is drawn to the shy but endearing Adam. Could he really have been involved in Olivia’s murder? Just as Catherine is settling in and getting to know Adam, a vandal strikes again, and it’s eerily reminiscent of the events surrounding Olivia’s murder. The death threats splashed on the walls prove that the killer is back-and this time, it’s Catherine who wonders if she’s come to the wrong place at the wrong time.

Elephant's Graveyard
George Brant

Winner of the 2008 Keene Prize for Literature Winner of the 2008 David Mark Cohen National Playwriting Award

• Characters:
• 10 men, 3 females
• Flexible casting (Roles may be played by any race or gender except when specified.)
• Drama

Elephant's Graveyard is the true tale of the tragic collision of a struggling circus and a tiny town in Tennessee, which resulted in the only known lynching of an elephant. Set in September of 1916, the play combines historical fact and legend, exploring the deep-seated American craving for spectacle, violence and revenge.

"The script-based on a true story about a traveling circus that, in 1916, stumbled into gory disaster in a muddy Tennessee town-is, like the best art, microscopically specific with echoes that radiate outward across time. It conjures a world with its own atmosphere and terrible internal logic. It's mesmerizing... symphonic in its emotional variations on a tragic theme. Elephant's Graveyard buzzes with truth about the consequences of misunderstanding, the invisible but enormous gap between artists and their audiences, and the infernal beauty of vaudeville.

Jane Eyre
Charlotte Bronte

Charlotte Bronte characterized the eponymous heroine of her 1847 novel as being "as poor and plain as myself." Presenting a heroine with neither great beauty nor entrancing charm was an unprecendented maneuver, but Bronte's instincts proved correct, for readers of her era and ever after have taken Jane Eyre into their hearts. The author drew upon her own experience to depict Jane's struggles at Lowood, an oppressive boarding school, and her troubled career as a governess. Unlike Jane, Bronte had the advantage of a warm family circle that shared and encouraged her literary pursuits. She found immediate success with this saga of an orphan girl forced to make her way alone in the world, from Lowood School to Thornfield, the estate of the majestically moody Mr. Rochester, and beyond.

Alternating between personal anecdote, hilarious insight, and smart analysis, Luke Skywalker Can’t Read contends that Barbarella is good for you, that monster movies are just romantic comedies with commitment issues, that Dracula and Sherlock Holmes are total hipsters, and, most shockingly, shows how virtually everyone in the Star Wars universe is functionally illiterate.

For anyone who pretended their flashlight was a lightsaber, stood in line for a movie at midnight, or dreamed they were abducted by aliens, Luke Skywalker Can't Read is full of answers to questions you haven't thought to ask, and perfect for readers of Chuck Klosterman, Rob Sheffield, and Ernest Cline.

ORIGIN
DAN BROWN
HARDCOVER

The #1 New York Times Bestseller (October 2017) from the author of The Da Vinci Code.

Bilbao, Spain

Robert Langdon, Harvard professor of symbology and religious iconology, arrives at the ultramodern Guggenheim Museum Bilbao to attend a major announcement—the unveiling of a discovery that “will change the face of science forever.” The evening’s host is Edmond Kirsch, a forty-year-old billionaire and futurist whose dazzling high-tech inventions and audacious predictions have made him a renowned global figure. Kirsch, who was one of Langdon’s first students at Harvard two decades earlier, is about to reveal an astonishing breakthrough . . . one that will answer two of the fundamental questions of human existence.

As the event begins, Langdon and several hundred guests find themselves captivated by an utterly original presentation, which Langdon realizes will be far more controversial than he ever imagined. But the meticulously orchestrated evening suddenly erupts into chaos, and Kirsch’s precious discovery teeters on the brink of being lost forever. Reeling and facing an imminent threat, Langdon is forced into a desperate bid to escape Bilbao. With him is Ambra Vidal, the elegant museum director who worked with Kirsch to stage the provocative event. Together they flee to Barcelona on a perilous quest to locate a cryptic password that will unlock Kirsch’s secret.

Navigating the dark corridors of hidden history and extreme religion, Langdon and Vidal must evade a tormented enemy whose all-knowing power seems to emanate from Spain’s Royal Palace itself . . . and who will stop at nothing to silence Edmond Kirsch. On a trail marked by modern art and enigmatic symbols, Langdon and Vidal uncover clues that ultimately bring them face-to-face with Kirsch’s shocking discovery . . . and the breathtaking truth that has long eluded us.

Origin is stunningly inventive—Dan Brown's most brilliant and entertaining novel to date.

Orson Scott Card offers a Christmas gift to his millions of fans with A War of Gifts, a short novel set during Ender's first years at the Battle School where it is forbidden to celebrate religious holidays.

The children come from many nations, many religions; while they are being trained for war, religious conflict between them is not on the curriculum. But Dink Meeker, one of the older students, doesn't see it that way. He thinks that giving gifts isn't exactly a religious observation, and on Sinterklaas Day he tucks a present into another student's shoe.

This small act of rebellion sets off a battle royal between the students and the staff, but some surprising alliances form when Ender comes up against a new student, Zeck Morgan. The War over Santa Claus will force everyone to make a choice.

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
Lewis Carroll

One of the most popular and most quoted books in English, "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" was the creation of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832 1898), a distinguished scholar, mathematician, and author who wrote under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll. Written for young readers but enjoyed equally by adults, the wonderfully fantastic tale is credited with revolutionizing children's literature and liberating it from didactic constraints.

The story is deeply but gently satiric, enlivened with an imaginative plot and brilliant use of nonsense, as it relates Alice's adventures in a bizarre, topsy-turvy land underground. There she encounters a cast of strange characters and fanciful beasts, including the White Rabbit, March Hare, Mad Hatter, the sleepy Dormouse and grinning Cheshire Cat, the Mock Turtle, the dreadful Queen of Hearts, and a host of other unusual creatures. A selection of the Common Core State Standards Initiative.

Dark Mage
Jolayne Call

Lightbearers, Volume 1

The Dark Mage has haunted Karis since his 8th birthday, ever present and malevolent. Karis doesn't know who he is or what he wants, but he dreams of being free of the abiding evil he senses. But Karis finds a partner in his fight against the dark mage when he goes to visit his cousin, Malin, in Godsel. Unfortunately, the Dark Mage is attacking on multiple fronts: Karis and Malin must learn to resist and repel the dark mage's attempts to take Karis over, determine who is attacking the citizens of Godsel and effectively defend them, and follow the clues about the Bearers of Light and the Fire Gates left by Karis' great-grandfather. They must do all this while still maintaining the fiction that all is well and it's just business as usual. They are joined in their fight by Rilse, Malin's wolf companion, and Myrrha, a sound-weaver of extraordinary power with a mysterious past.

Jolayne Call

Bearers of Light

Awakening in the middle of the night to a psychic cry of help from his twin, Karis persuades a reluctant Malin (his cousin) to accompany him on a three week’s journey to Mythro. It is the middle of the night, in December, with a snow storm on the way and the cousins are not prepared. Furthermore, Karis is not willing to wait until they are. He is convinced terrible things will happen to his family who are now prisoners in their own home, if he and Malin do not leave immediately. They may already be too late.
So they go, accompanied by an enthusiastic Rilse, Malin’s white wolf companion, who is sure he will meet up with other wolves in the colder north. Malin and Karis are also sure they will meet up with other wolves - human wolves - though what faces the enemy will wear and whose colors is yet unknown. If they are successful at freeing the royal prisoners, they will make the return trip south to Godsel, in inclement weather, with an ill king, the queen, a small child, and a fully mounted pursuit behind them. The odds are not in their favor. Will their combined resources and gifts be sufficient to get them to safety?

My Antonia
Willa Cather

"My Antonia" evokes the Nebraska prairie life of Willa Cather's childhood, and commemorates the spirit and courage of immigrant pioneers in America. One of Cather's earliest novels, written in 1918, it is the story of Antonia Shimerda, who arrives on the Nebraska frontier as part of a family of Bohemian emigrants. Her story is told through the eyes of Jim Burden, a neighbor who will befriend Antonia, teach her English, and follow the remarkable story of her life.

Working in the fields of waving grass and tall corn that dot the Great Plains, Antonia forges the durable spirit that will carry her through the challenges she faces when she moves to the city. But only when she returns to the prairie does she recover her strength and regain a sense of purpose in life. In the quiet, probing depth of Willa Cather's art, Antonia's story becomes a mobbing elegy to those whose persistence and strength helped build the American frontier.

The Awakening
Kate Chopin

First published in 1899, this beautiful, brief novel so disturbed critics and the public that it was banished for decades afterward. Now widely read and admired, "The Awakening" has been hailed as an early vision of woman's emancipation. This sensuous book tells of a woman's abandonment of her family, her seduction, and her awakening to desires and passions that threated to consumer her. Originally entitled "A Solitary Soul, " this portrait of twenty-eight-year-old Edna Pontellier is a landmark in American fiction, rooted firmly in the romantic tradition of Herman Melville and Emily Dickinson. Here, a woman in search of self-discovery turns away from convention and society, and toward the primal, from convention and society, and toward the primal, irresistibly attracted to nature and the senses "The Awakening," Kate Chopin's last novel, has been praised by Edmund Wilson as "beautifully written." And Willa Cather described its style as "exquisite, " "sensitive, " and "iridescent." This edition of "The Awakening" also includes a selection of short stories by Kate Chopin.

"This seems to me a higher order of feminism than repeating the story of woman as victim... Kate Chopin gives her female protagonist the central role, normally reserved for Man, in a meditation on identity and culture, consciousness and art."

The Last of the Mohicans
James Fenimore Cooper

A massacre at a colonial garrison, the kidnapping of two pioneer sisters by Iroquois tribesmen, the treachery of a renegade brave, and the ambush of innocent settlers create an unforgettable, spine-tingling picture of American frontier life in this classic 18th-century adventure the most popular of James Fenimore Cooper's "Leatherstocking Tales."

Embroiled in one of the war's bloody battles, they attempt to lead the abducted Munro sisters to safety but find themselves instead in the midst of a final, tragic confrontation between rival war parties.

Imaginative and innovative, "The Last of the Mohicans" quickly became the most widely read work of the day, solidifying the popularity of America's first successful novelist in the United States and Europe. Required reading in many American literature classics, the novel presents a stirring picture of a vanishing people and the end to a way of life in the eastern forests.

The Red Badge of Courage
Stephen Crane

Meet Henry Fleming, a youth who dreams of glory as a Union Army soldier during the Civil War. In the middle of his first battle, Henry runs from the fighting in terror. He begins to grow up when he has to face his fellow soldiers, some of whom are wounded and dying. Now, Henry knows that war is not as glorious as he thought. An another major battle begins, will Henry flee or find the courage to stay and fight?

First published in 1895, this small masterpiece set the pattern for the treatment of war in modern fiction. The novel is told through the eyes of Henry Fleming, a young soldier caught up in an unnamed Civil War battle who is motivated not by the unselfish heroism of conventional war stories, but by fear, cowardice, and finally, egotism. However, in his struggle to find reality amid the nightmarish chaos of war, the young soldier also discovers courage, humility, and perhaps, wisdom. Although Crane had never been in battle before writing "The Red Badge of Courage," the book was widely praised by experienced soldiers for its uncanny re-creation of the sights, sounds, and sense of actual combat. Its publication brought Crane immediate international fame and established him as a major American writer. Today, nearly a century later, the book ranks as an enduring landmark of American fiction.
