This unique eBook edition of Algernon Blackwood's collected novels has been formatted to the highest digital standards and adjusted for readability on all devices.
Algernon Blackwood (1869-1951) was an English short story writer and novelist, one of the most prolific writers of ghost stories in the history of the genre. Though Blackwood wrote a number of horror stories, his most typical work seeks less to frighten than to induce a sense of awe. Good examples are the novels The Centaur, which climaxes with a traveler's sight of a herd of the mythical creatures; and Julius LeVallon and its sequel The Bright Messenger, which deal with reincarnation and the possibility of a new, mystical evolution in human consciousness.

Alternate Reality/Parallel Universe Romance by NYT Bestseller, Michelle M. Pillow
Sorin of Firewall lives in a land forever at war. In fact, the Starian men are so busy fighting, their marriage ceremony has been reduced to an alpha male "will of the gods" event where they simply pick a woman out of a lineup and claim her as a wife.

"Do you love me?"
Shock burned through my veins and the world stopped turning as I looked up at her. How could she ask such a question of me?
"D, Tell me our story... " She whispered.
"You know it already." I responded. Surprised at her request, I threw a log into the centre of the fire, causing it to splutter and spark.
"I know my story, it's true, but ours is different." Her voice was firm and the silent request filled the icy air between us.
"Kalebra," I sighed, "Is this how you want to spend this night, this of all nights?"
Laughing, she turned to me.
"If my world is to end tomorrow, then yes, this is exactly how I want to spend this night of all nights. Tell me our story D, tell it as it will be told by those that come after us."

Mukwunaguk is under siege by forces none of them understand, but Angie can't help but wondering: isn't something about this whole situation a little too familiar?

"A Modern Utopia" is presented as a tale told by a sketchily described character known only as the Owner of the Voice. This character "is not to be taken as the Voice of the ostensible author who fathers these pages," Wells warns. He is accompanied by another character known as "the botanist." Interspersed in the narrative are discursive remarks on various matters, creating what Wells called in his preface "a sort of shot-silk texture between philosophical discussion on the one hand and imaginative narrative on the other." Because of the complexity and sophistication of its narrative structure, H.G. Wells's A Modern Utopia has been called "not so much a modern as a postmodern utopia." The novel is best known for its notion that a voluntary order of nobility known as the Samurai could effectively rule a "kinetic and not static" world state so as to solve "the problem of combining progress with political stability."
