The Hero (Classic Unabridged Edition): One of the first novels by a prolific British Playwright, Novelist and Short Story writer, author of "The ... by William Somerset Maugham (e-artnow) 4.0 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 16 minutes ago

This carefully crafted ebook: "The Hero (Classic Unabridged Edition)" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. William Somerset Maugham (1874-1965) was a British playwright, novelist and short story writer. He was among the most popular writers of his era and reputedly the highest paid author during the 1930s. Excerpt: "But human sorrow is like water in an earthen pot. Little by little Colonel Parsons forgot his misery; he had turned it over in his mind so often that at last he grew confused. It became then only a deep wound partly healed, scarring over; and he began to take an interest in the affairs of the life surrounding him. He could read his paper without every word stabbing him by some chance association; and there is nothing like the daily and thorough perusal of a newspaper for dulling a man's brain. He pottered about his garden gossiping with the gardener; made little alterations in the house -- bricks and mortar are like an anodyne; he collected stamps; played bezique with his wife; and finally, in his mild, gentle way, found peace of mind...

The Life of a Cowboy: Complete 5 Book Collection: True Life Tales of Texas Cowboys and Adventure Novels by Andy Adams (Musaicum Books) Price verified 39 minutes ago

"The Log of a Cowboy" is an account of a five-month drive of 3,000 cattle from Brownsville, Texas, to Montana during 1882 along the Great Western Cattle Trail. Although the book is fiction, it is based on Adams's own experiences, and it is considered by many to be literature's best account of cowboy life. Adams was disgusted by the unrealistic cowboy fiction being published in his time; The Log of a Cowboy was his response. The Chicago Herald has said: "As a narrative of cowboy life, Andy Adams' book is clearly the real thing. It carries its own certificate of authentic first-hand experience on every page." This edition also includes Adams other famous western novels like The Outlet, A Texas Matchmaker, Reed Anthony, Cowman and The Wells Brothers. Andy Adams (1859-1935) was an American writer of western fiction and was born in Indiana. Since childhood Andy used to help his parents with the cattle and horses on the family farm. Due to this Andy's works have been lauded widely for his first hand and authentic portrayal of the life of a cowboy unlike his contemporaries like Owen Wister who romanticized it.

On the way to be transferred to a remote space station, he learns he is about to be the subject of one last experiment--and it will prove fatal. So he chooses to break out of the only environment he has ever known, and crash-land on an abandoned prison planet called Tenebrae. Now he must maneuver his way through a perilous web of dark dead-ends and patrol droids with the help of the only other living being on the planet: the intelligent security system. A woman called LILI. "Wow, incredible," the doctor breathed, quickly scanning the stats. "So...

Everyday People: Tales of people you know by Salini Vineeth 4.2 Stars (44 Reviews)    Price verified 3 hours ago

'Everyday People' is a collection of eight short stories featuring familiar strangers. These are stories of ordinary people whom you have met - at work, during the daily commute, in your friend circles, or on social media. However, the stories have a twist or an element of thrill to them. They rip open the sheath of mundane lives and present you with raw, poignant, and profound vignettes of urban life. These stories attempt to capture the dramatic flipside of the banal existence of everyday people. As the editor defines them... The stories are the perfect mix of sensationalism out of the mundane, exhibitionism of what has been undercover, and the simple refinement of human thought perspectives. The words sway and dance, tantalizingly just out of reach, trying to entice the reader into that false lull of security until a twist comes that makes them wonder, 'What did I just read?'

Barry Liam O'Feld, CEO of B L O'Feld Megalomaniac Industries (BLOMI), wants a super evil secret lair building in a remote South Seas location to destroy the planet or possibly worse, so he needs a project manager; which is fortunate as Brian wants a job. Unfortunately Brian is a catering manager, so naturally he lies. Luckily for Brian, lying is a core value for O'Feld Industries. In Project: Evil follow the progress of Brian's project meeting by meeting, observing the interaction of the various stakeholders from the project sponsor to the humble henchpersons employed as cannon fodder as Brian struggles to keep the project on track. Not only does he have to cope with the warped logic of a company that doesn't value its own life let alone that of its enemies, he has to deal with the unwelcome advances of the octogenarian Secret Service agent James Bund while also somehow project managing the Christmas office party as O'Feld rushes to beat his peer megalomaniacs such as Doktor Negatif and Gold Digit to be the first to destroy the planet. If project management has ever seemed a mystery, a black art or even (improbably) a dull activity then Project: Evil may be the only book that will make you realise just how funny the subject can be. It may even help you understand why the bad guys feel inclined to run around in sh!t coloured pyjamas when the going gets tough. Recommended reading for all project managers and sufferers of their art form everywhere.

Mankind forced to relocate to a different habitable environment, light years from Earth. A group of young people on a distant planet who must re-establish human civilization. A fantastical yet realistic world based on plausible technological developments. A power-mad egomaniac determined to destroy anyone who gets in his way. This is The Third Thaw, a hard science fiction novel that presents a radically different strategy for planet colonization, one within the grasp of present technologies. In a settlement called New Eden, live a group of teens known as the Third Thaw. They come from Earth, conceived there and sent as frozen embryos on a rocket ship to this planet twenty-six light years away, a journey that lasted 80,000 years. When they reach the age of twenty-one, after being thoroughly and specifically educated for their future tasks, the Third Thaw must leave New Eden to assist with colonizing a larger, permanent settlement on the planet. After the First and Second Thaws fail to complete their expedition, it's up to the Third Thaw to succeed and save civilization. As the highly-trained expedition party heads out to fulfill their tasks, they encounter life-threatening obstacles in their way, many of which challenged the Thaws that preceded them. Not the least of these is a group broken off from a German colony sent from Earth years earlier. This group and their leader, Ulrich, believe they are evolved beyond ordinary humans. Ulrich, along with his supercomputer "Genius," is determined to destroy the Third Thaw. And anyone else who threatens to stop him.

For the Love of Nassau Chapter 19: Fantasy Golf Safari of 1939 by Scott F Neve Price verified 4 hours ago

* Historic Action Adventure Short Story ! This chapter from my upcoming epic novel features the greatest men and women players from the Golden Age of Golf on a world tour of the most fantastic holes ever imagined! It is an exotic blend of Indiana Jones action and pulp fiction adventure laced with mystery and romance. Chapter 19 For the Love of Nassau Nassau, Bahamas Hole 18 The 18th hole of the world golf tour was a dream come true for the American golfers. The fairway was a magic carpet spread out before the intrepid players. It was pristine with manicured lawns and sculpted landscape. There were no sand traps or nasty obstructions in the fairway. All of the palm trees were on the outer limits of the rough. The tee area overlooked a shallow valley. Crossing the heart of the valley was a picturesque stream. In the middle of the clear stream was a fountain that sent up a fan-tale of water like a peacock. The narrow bridge was a manmade work of art that resembled the Great Wall of China. The green on the other side of the valley was poised before the majestic clubhouse. The putting surface was smooth, wide and comfortable. Because of its superior 543 yard length the par was 5, but it was more or less a glorified par 3 on steroids. At the 18th tee, Sir Hage said, "I could cry. This place is so beautiful." Robby said, "You're just tickled pink that the free bar is at the end of this hole." "I cannot lie. You are right," his partner chuckled as he spoke. Robby spoke up, "It's too good to be true. We've literally been around the world. There is nowhere on earth where the grounds are so perfectly appointed with rolling hills, fresh water springs, and ocean views." "It is too good to be true, so let's enjoy every second while we are here," said Sir Hage as he reached deep into his golf bag for another beer.

An alien bloodline that has laid dormant for ages is about to reveal itself. The holy land of Eastvole, ruled by the Solcine Church, is in turmoil. Toads rain from the sky and flesh-eating locust strip the countryside of both crop and flock. Rumours of a dreaded plague, not seen in centuries, are spreading. To confirm the common folk's notion of impending catastrophe, a comet appears in the eastern sky - the Serpent's Tongue. Valashians remain locked indoors, believing the anomaly poisons the air and the water supply. Lord Patriarch Crindle Novarkis knows the significance of the Serpent's Tongue. It heralds the coming of the Umber Lord, a being straight out of a child's bedtime storybook. But who is he, and more importantly, what does he want? Yet Crindle should have died years ago. A tumour in his neck left him with a tracheotomy and a hopeless addiction to valerian, a narcotic leaf. One man keeps Crindle alive: his brilliant physiker, Vincent Quellock. Expelled by his college for ungodly practice, Vincent finds Crindle to be his perfect foil. After all, who better than the lord patriarch himself to provide him with the two things he desires most - corpses and privacy? The story follows Crindle and his ever-present companion, Quellock, on their journey to unravel the mystery of the Umber Lord. But his secrets will not be unearthed easily. Firstly, they must find the Mosaic Man. Only by deciphering the code hidden in his flesh can the true path be discovered. The Umber Lord is set in the fantasy world of Taer, a typical medieval world.

Keepsakes of Grief: Poetry Noir 2004 - 2011 by Stephen Donald Huff (Capital Ideations LLC) Price verified 6 hours ago

I heard the call, the tone of it teasing, a broadcast chorus of incessant singing amid devilish choirs of insidious patter, the dry rasping of scales and portentous matter to cast shadows of sounds among us that must listen, beyond maddened distraction, inaudible vision. For I heard the call, the lies of it pleasing, then I followed it blindly where it would lead me. Beyond death and disaster through ranges of never, I learned listening is ruin and blindness is error. I cursed blackness of bruises, I despised the tender of capital expenditures and I as the lender. I heard the call, and I hated its message, for pipedream pursuits earn the wickedest of blessings, and the laziest among us are perhaps the smartest. The happiest of our number is the unhappy artist; they too quickly learned how nothing is of matter - not the singers, not the choir, not the subject of the patter. Often, the most popular modern poetry demonstrates a determined morbidity, and many of our most beloved poets perished by their own hands. Doing so, they left behind countless keepsakes of grief, but I will not label their passage as 'tragic'. I believe a martyr's suffering demands happy witness. Otherwise, why hang upon a cross?

F. Scott Fitzgerald Four Pack: Benjamin Button, This Side of Paradise, The Beautiful and Damned, The Diamond as Big as The Ritz by F. Scott Fitzgerald (Enhanced Media Publishing) 3.7 Stars (34 Reviews)    Price verified 4 hours ago

"If I wanted anything, I'd take it... I can't be bothered resisting things I want." ~ The Beautiful and Damned. Fans of The Great Gatsby author are in for a treat! Included in this bundle: This Side of Paradise, The Beautiful and Damned, The Diamond as Big as the Ritz and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. THIS SIDE OF PARADISE First published in 1920, F. Scott Fitzgerald's debut novel was a sizzling sensation that put the young American author on the map. Its initial printing of 3,000 copies sold out in three days. Virtually a record of the 'Lost Generation' in its college days, the novel explores Fitzgerald's characteristic theme of true love blighted by money lust and is remarkable for its honest and detailed descriptions of the early Jazz Age. THE BEAUTIFUL AND THE DAMNED First published in 1922, F. Scott Fitzgerald's second novel portrays the Eastern elite during the Jazz Age, exploring New York Café Society. The story is believed to be largely based on Fitzgerald's stormy relationship with Zelda Fitzgerald. This is the tale of young couple Anthony and Gloria Patch living out their days to the hilt in New York City as they await the death of Anthony's grandfather, Adam Patch from whom they expect to inherit his massive fortune. They drink and eat in the classiest restaurants and hotels, rent the most expensive apartments, travel out to the West in the spring time driving plush cars, wearing top-of-the-line clothing and just generally living it up high on the hog, as they wait. But as time goes on their lust for life and their similarities threaten to destroy their innocence and their relationship. THE DIAMOND AS BIG AS THE RITZ First published in the June 1922 issue of The Smart Set magazine, The Diamond as Big as The Ritz is one of F. Scott Fitzgerald's under-rated masterpieces. The story was initially rejected by publishers because of its not-so-subtle satirical messages about American capitalism. THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON The classic ...

Today Elsie would pretend to be a grand lady, entertaining on the balcony of her husband's mansion. In truth, she would rather hide in the garden with a favorite book. Better yet, she could ride the trolley downtown to the 5th Street Store and take up her old job. Be useful. Be productive. Be practical. Women had won the vote. They were joining the workforce in unprecedented numbers. Intellectual opportunities beckoned. It was never Elsie's desire to live a life of luxury and privilege.

Carthage, Tunisia The first thing that Cassidy Le Mason noticed about Carthage was that the colorful native warriors loved long iron-tipped spears adorned with fancy feathers. The pretty local women gawked at the handsome young Frenchman as he climbed out of the sea. He was dripping wet and dressed in a beggar's cloak. Valletta, Malta The afternoon sun was hazy as it hung in the misty blue sky. Its corona was blurry and threatened to cry lonely teardrops on all who witnessed its melancholy dance. The very air tasted of the ancient past with its sweet sugar and exotic spices. The Tunisian trawler sailed through the Mediterranean Sea on the west coast of Malta. The contrary winds had forced the craft to alter its course and come at the island in a most unusual fashion. The curious craft had picked up Cass on the shore of the Sahara Desert after he ran away from Bedouins and banshees. The crew dropped him off at the largest Maltese port.

This ebook is a compilation of short stories written by author Sherwood Anderson and published in 1921. It includes some of his greatest works: "The Egg," a story about the struggle to find success and happiness in the American Midwest, "I'm a Fool," about a young man who sabotages his chance at love because of his own feelings of inferiority, and "I Want to Know Why," about the confusion and desperation felt by a boy entering adulthood. Triumph of the Egg and Other Stories is highly recommended for those who enjoy the writings of Sherwood Anderson and for those discovering his writings for the first time. Sherwood Anderson (1876-1941) was a novelist and short story writer who has been recognized as one of the most innovative and important American authors of his time. He was a prolific writer, publishing seven novels and myriad collections of essays, memoirs, poetry and short stories. Anderson wrote in a characteristically simple prose style, and his unconventional techniques caused him to at first be written off. However, his unique exploration of the unconscious and its effect on behavior created very vulnerable, human characters that evoke sympathy from readers.

It is August in the year 1990. Steve Jackson, 31 years old, has been laid off after many years in the high tech industry. He is a victim of the ongoing nationwide recession. Unable to find a professional position and desperate for work, he takes a job driving a taxi cab nights. As he becomes accustomed to the night driving routine, Jackson is faced with the unpredictable and dangerous aspects of the cab driving lifestyle. He finds himself navigating through a jungle of cranky customers, drunks, hookers, addicts, and a number of total nut-jobs. A writer at heart, Jackson is intrigued by what he experiences. He buys a ledger and keeps a running journal of his encounters and impressions. In the process, he documents a gradual transformation in his personal attitude and outlook on life, all as a result of what he learns out on the road. Night Driver provides a stark and honest perspective on the cab driving business as Steve Jackson viewed it. The book also offers a sympathetic and often comical perspective on his dispatchers, fellow drivers, and regular customers. Finally, Night Driver contrasts the mundane nine-to-five routine of Jackson's former life with the appealing freedom, but also danger, of driving a cab for a living. Night Driver is written in four parts covering the four seasons. Each part consists of episodic fast moving vignettes narrated by Jackson, the protagonist. It is the kind of book that does not require long sittings or heavy concentration to enjoy. Just about everyone has had a strange happening in a taxi cab. Night Driver takes the reader on a wild and fascinating ride through a dark world in which anything can happen next.
