Détails: During his lifetime Aleksey Apukhtin (1840-93) was considered a foremost Russian poet and prominent figure in St. Petersburg society of the time. He was a lifelong friend of Tchaikovsky (they were both educated at the School of Jurisprudence in St. Petersburg). Their friendship was often strained in later life, possibly as a result of the fact that Apukhtin never went out of his way to conceal his homosexuality, whilst the composer tried strenuously to mask his own. Apukhtin turned to prose in the last years of his life, and the few works that he completed appeared for the first time posthumously. The present edition contains the first English translations of The Papers of Countess D*** and The Diary of Pavlik Dolsky, and a modern translation of Between Life and Death.

Détails: Once upon a time, the name Baghdad conjured up visions of the most magical, romantic city on earth, where flying carpets carried noble thieves off on wonderful adventures, and vicious viziers and beautiful princesses mingled with wily peasants and powerful genies. This is the world of the Arabian Nights, a magnificent collection of ancient tales from Arabia, India, and Persia. The tales—often stories within stories—are told by the sultana Scheherazade, who relates them as entertainments for her jealous and murderous husband, hoping to keep him amused and herself alive. Three fantastic tales have been chosen from our new translation to introduce readers to the delights of Arabian Nights: 'Ali Baba and the forty thieves killed by the slave girl' is a well-known and well-loved classic, placed alongside the equally enchanting 'Judar and his brothers' and 'Ma'rus the cobbler'.

Détails: These early works by Robert E. Howard were originally published in the early 20th century and we are now republishing them with a brand new introductory biography. 'Three Tales of Solomon Kane' is a compilation of Howard's short stories in the Solomon Kane series and include 'Skulls in the Stars', 'Rattle of Bones', and 'Red Shadows'. Robert Ervin Howard was born in Peaster, Texas in 1906. During his youth, his family moved between a variety of Texan boomtowns, and Howard – a bookish and somewhat introverted child – was steeped in the violent myths and legends of the Old South. At fifteen Howard began to read the pulp magazines of the day, and to write more seriously. The December 1922 issue of his high school newspaper featured two of his stories, 'Golden Hope Christmas' and 'West is West'. In 1924 he sold his first piece – a short caveman tale titled 'Spear and Fang' – for $16 to the not-yet-famous Weird Tales magazine. Howard's most famous character, Conan the Cimmerian, was a barbarian-turned-King during the Hyborian Age, a mythical period of some 12,000 years ago. Conan featured in seventeen Weird Tales stories between 1933 and 1936 which is why Howard is now regarded as having spawned the 'sword and sorcery' genre. The Conan stories have since been adapted many times, most famously in the series of films starring Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Détails: A trio of mind-blowing explorations of space and time from a multiple Hugo and Nebula Award–winning author, “one of science fiction’s most revered writers” (USA Today). For SFWA Grand Master Poul Anderson, humanity’s expansion into space exploration was the logical extension of the principle of individual liberty and a natural response to profound existential curiosity. He remained endlessly fascinated by the possibilities of limitless frontiers, penning “more milestones in contemporary science fiction and fantasy than any one man is entitled to” (Stephen Donaldson). Here are three of Anderson’s most memorable tales of time and space travel. There Will Be Time: Born with a strange genetic mutation, Jack Havig can travel backward and forward in time at will. He’s journeyed to ancient Rome and the Wild West—and into the far future, to a world nearly obliterated by nuclear war. But after he is admitted into a secret time-traveling organization, he stumbles upon a horrific plot to irrevocably alter the destiny of humankind. The Enemy Stars: In the twenty-third century, four astronauts hailing from different worlds have been entrusted to explore a long-dead star located light-years beyond where humanity has previously traveled. But when the black sun’s magnetic field destroys their only means of returning home, these four strangers must work together to survive—or together they will perish. Fire Time: Fire Time is coming to Ishtar. This once-in-a-millennium environmental catastrophe occurs when one of the planet’s three suns encroaches on Ishtar’s surface. Indigenous nomadic tribes, desperate to escape scorched homelands that will be rendered uninhabitable, have declared war on their more civilized brethren to claim their territory. Caught in the middle are human colonists from Earth, searching for a solution to both civil war and an approaching apocalypse.

Détails: This carefully crafted ebook: "Three Tales: A Simple Heart, Saint Julian the Hospitalier and Herodias” is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. "A Simple Heart" is a story about a servant girl named Felicité. After her one and only love Théodore purportedly marries a well-to-do woman to avoid conscription, Felicité quits the farm where she works and heads for Pont-l'Évèque, where she picks up work in a widow's house as a servant. It was inspired by several events in Flaubert's own life: he also lived in a farmhouse in rural Normandy, he also was adrift in his studies, much like Paul. Most importantly, he suffered an epileptic fit in the same way that Félicité does in the story. "The Legend of Saint Julian the Hospitalier" is a story about Julian the Hospitaller. He is predicted at birth to do great things. His father is told that he will marry into the family of a great emperor, while his mother is told he will be a saint. It was inspired by a large stained glass window at Rouen Cathedral. Flaubert deliberately made his story markedly different from the story told in glass. "Hérodias" is the retelling of the beheading of John the Baptist. It starts slightly before the arrival of the Syrian governor, Vitellius. Herodias holds a huge birthday celebration for her second husband, Herod Antipas. Unknown to him, she has concocted a plan to behead John. It is based on the biblical figure of the same name. Flaubert based the section on the dance of Salomé from a bas-relief also at Rouen Cathedral, and his own experience watching a young female dancer while in Egypt. Gustave Flaubert (1821-1880) was an influential French writer who was perhaps the leading exponent of literary realism of his country.

The Reverend's Wife Debauched. I didn’t know about The Underground Church—a basement room in which the altar was an X rather than a cross.

Klaus told me that the issue was really Desire. Ans in truth, I didn’t “give in.” I wasn’t “subdued.” I BEGGED. Repeatedly. PLEADING for the privilege of being PERMITTED to surrender. Three hot, hard-hitting BDSM stories.

Détails: One cold rainy day when my father was a little boy, he met an old alley cat on his street. The cat was very drippy and uncomfortable so my father said, "Wouldn't you like to come home with me?" This surprised the cat—she had never before met anyone who cared about old alley cats—but she said, "I'd be very much obliged if I could sit by a warm furnace, and perhaps have a saucer of milk."

Détails: The Prose of the Mountains contains three tales of the Caucasus by Aleksandre Qazbegi, one of the most prescient and gifted chroniclers of the Georgian encounter with colonial modernity. His stories offer an invaluable counterpoint to the predominantly Russian narratives that have hitherto shaped scholarly accounts of the nineteenth-century Caucasus. "Memoirs of a Shepherd" poignantly chronicles the young author's decision to pass seven years of his life as a shepherd with Georgian mountaineers. "Eliso" (the name of a Chechen girl) offers one of the most searing accounts on record of the forced migration of this people from their homeland to Ottoman lands. Set in the sixteenth century, "Khevis Beri Gocha" (the name of a Georgian village chief) classically chronicles a tragic misunderstanding between a severe father and his loving son.

Détails: A Newbery Honor Book that the New York Times called "an eerie delight," The Wish Giver is an engaging literary folk story about those who get what they wish for—whether they want it or not. The people of Coven Tree are no strangers to magic. In fact, the town's very name comes from a gnarled old tree where covens of witches used to gather. Even now, imps and fiends continue to appear, frightening the townsfolk with their devilish pranks. Usually these creatures are easy to spot. They have a particular smell, or sound, or way of moving, that betrays their dark nature. But Thaddeus Blinn showed none of these signs when he came to Coven Tree. He was just a funny little man who drifted into town with a strange tale about being able to give people whatever they wished—for only fifty cents. There was nothing scary about him. At least, not until the wishing began...

Détails: From the #1 New York Times–bestselling author of Sophie’s Choice: three novellas of a young writer’s journey to adulthood. In Love Day, twenty-year-old Paul Whitehurst is a Marine lieutenant during World War II, waiting to land on Okinawa, wrestling with anxiety and memories of his boyhood in Virginia. In Shadrach, ten-year-old Paul witnesses his neighbors as they welcome a guest: a ninety-nine-year-old former slave who has walked nine hundred miles from Alabama so that he may die on the land of his childhood owner. And in A Tidewater Morning, Paul is thirteen and struggling to deal with his mother’s impending death from cancer. Together in one volume, each of these affecting semiautobiographical novellas from the author of such literary classics as the Pulitzer Prize–winning The Confessions of Nat Turner and the memoir Darkness Visible, weaves together the transformative experiences of Whitehurst’s early life with William Styron’s signature deep historical insight, underscoring how the significance of the past informs the present. As the Los Angeles Times notes, it is “one of Styron’s finest works. . . . The beauty and humanity of the Southern tradition are evoked vividly.” This ebook features a new illustrated biography of William Styron, including original letters, rare photos, and never-before-seen documents from the Styron family and the Duke University Archives.

Détails: Both in opera studies and in most operatic works, the singing body is often taken for granted. In Postopera: Reinventing the Voice-Body, Jelena Novak reintroduces an awareness of the physicality of the singing body to opera studies. Arguing that the voice-body relationship itself is a producer of meaning, she furthermore posits this relationship as one of the major driving forces in recent opera. She takes as her focus six contemporary operas - La Belle et la Bête (Philip Glass), Writing to Vermeer (Louis Andriessen, Peter Greenaway), Three Tales (Steve Reich, Beryl Korot), One (Michel van der Aa), Homeland (Laurie Anderson), and La Commedia (Louis Andriessen, Hal Hartley) - which she terms 'postoperas'. These pieces are sites for creative exploration, where the boundaries of the opera world are stretched. Central to this is the impact of new media, a de-synchronization between image and sound, or a redefinition of body-voice-gender relationships. Novak dissects the singing body as a set of rules, protocols, effects, and strategies. That dissection shows how the singing body acts within the world of opera, what interventions it makes, and how it constitutes opera’s meanings.

Détails: One of the New York Times’s Ten Best Books of the Year: These traditional stories of Italy, retold by a literary master, are “a treasure” (Los Angeles Times). Filled with kings and peasants, saints and ogres—as well as some quite extraordinary plants and animals—these two hundred tales bring to life Italy’s folklore, sometimes with earthy humor, sometimes with noble mystery, and sometimes with the playfulness of sheer nonsense. Selected and retold by one of the country’s greatest literary icons, “this collection stands with the finest folktale collections anywhere” (The New York Times Book Review). “For readers of any age . . . A masterwork.” —The Wall Street Journal “A magic book, and a classic to boot.” —Time
