Believed to be a collaboration between science fiction luminary Jules Verne and French writer Andre Laurie (the pen name of politician Paschal Grousset), The Waif of the Cynthia skillfully combines action-adventure with a beguiling mystery. A respected and affluent Norwegian doctor takes an interest in the case of the brilliant orphan Erik and vows not only to support him and guide his education, but also to help Erik discover his true origins.

Book Short Summary:

This novel from the author of Around the World in Eighty Days and Journey to the Center of the Earth captures the terror and tragedy of a shipwreck. This 1875 novel portrays in devastating detail the final voyage of a British sailing ship, the Chancellor, in the form of a diary written by one of its passengers, J. R. Kazallon. Carrying eight travelers and twenty crew members, the Chancellor sets sail from Charleston, South Carolina. Nearly a month into its voyage, a fire breaks out in the cargo hold, initiating a tragic chain of events that will ultimately sink the ship and leave the survivors adrift on a raft in shark-infested waters. “Verne in all wrote 55 novels and many of them predicted aspects of the world and science as it exists today. Other novels included describing space travel, floating cities, lost islands and more. Many of his themes and plots have become major influences on generations of authors and screenwriters ever since. If you have not read one of his books, find one of these or one of the fifty plus novels and give him a few hours of your time. You will find the escape into the mind of one of the ‘Fathers of Science Fiction’ a worthwhile endeavor.” —Times News Online

Book Short Summary:

Musaicum Books presents to you this carefully created volume of "The Leavenworth Case & Other Detective Novels - 22 Thrillers in One Edition". This ebook has been designed and formatted to the highest digital standards and adjusted for readability on all devices. Anna Katharine Green (1846-1935) was an American poet and novelist. Green has been called "the mother of the detective novel". Green is credited with shaping detective fiction into its classic form, and developing the series detective. Her main character was detective Ebenezer Gryce of the New York Metropolitan Police Force, but in three novels he is assisted by the nosy society spinster Amelia Butterworth, the prototype for Miss Marple, Miss Silver and other creations. She also invented the 'girl detective': in the character of Violet Strange, a debutante with a secret life as a sleuth. Indeed, as journalist Kathy Hickman writes, Green "stamped the mystery genre with the distinctive features that would influence writers from Agatha Christie and Conan Doyle to contemporary authors of suspenseful "whodunits". She was one of the first writers of detective fiction in America and distinguished herself by writing well plotted, legally accurate stories. In addition to creating elderly spinster and young female sleuths, Green's innovative plot devices included dead bodies in libraries, newspaper clippings as "clews", the coroner's inquest, and expert witnesses.

Reginald Pratt is an architect who lives an extremely bland existence in the London suburbs with his mother and his cat. Reginald's philosophy on architecture in particular and life in general, has been influenced by his late father, also an architect.

His career abruptly changes direction, and through a series of bizarre circumstances he finds himself unintentionally jettisoned into the glitzy lifestyle of the French Riviera. For Reginald, life will never be the same.

Book Short Summary:

On November 27, 1937, NBC presented TV's first pilot film, Sherlock Holmes (then called an "experiment"). Thousands of pilot films (both unaired and televised) have been produced since. This updated and restyled book contains 2,470 alphabetically arranged pilot films broadcast from 1937 to 2019. Entries contain the concept, cast and character information, credits (producer, writer, director), dates, genre and network or cable affiliation. In addition to a complete performer's index, two appendices have been included: one detailing the pilot films that led to a series and a second that lists the programs that were spun off from one series into another. Never telecast pilot films can be found in the companion volume, The Encyclopedia of Unaired Television Pilots, 1945-2018. Both volumes are the most complete and detailed sources for such information, a great deal of which is based on viewing the actual programs.

Against all odds, but with optimism, the help of their Virginian mountain community, and an abiding love for books, they succeeded in establishing more than a thriving business - they built a community. The Little Bookstore of Big Stone Gap is the little bookstore that could: how two people, two cats, two dogs, and thirty-eight thousand books helped a small town find its heart.

Book Short Summary:

Over the last century there has been a complete transformation of the fashion system. The unitary top-down fashion cycle has been replaced by the pulsations of multiple and simultaneous styles, while the speed of global production and circulation has become ever faster and more complex. Running in tandem, the development of artificial fibres has revolutionized the composition of clothing, and the increased focus on youth, sexuality, and the body has radically changed its design. From the 1920s flapper dress to debates over the burkini, fashion has continued to be deeply involved in society's larger issues. Drawing on a wealth of visual, textual and object sources and illustrated with 100 images, A Cultural History of Dress and Fashion in the Modern Age presents essays on textiles, production and distribution, the body, belief, gender and sexuality, status, ethnicity, and visual and literary representations to illustrate the diversity and cultural significance of dress and fashion in the period.

Book Short Summary:

From action movies to video games to sports culture, modern masculinity is intrinsically associated with violent competition. This legacy has its roots in the 19th-century Romantic figure of the Byronic hero—the ideal Victorian male: devoted husband, sexual revolutionary and weaponized servant of the state. His silhouette can be traced through the works of authors like Lord Byron, Jane Austen, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Rudyard Kipling and Oscar Wilde. More than a literary genealogy, this history of the Byronic hero and his heirs follows the changes that masculinity has undergone in response to industrial upheaval, the rise of the middle class and the demands of global competition, from the Victorian period through the early 20th century.

Book Short Summary:

The Leveretts were at their breakfast in the large sunny room in Derby Street. It had an outlook on the garden, and beyond the garden was a lane, well used and to be a street itself in the future. Then, at quite a distance, a strip of woods on a rise of ground, that still further enhanced the prospect. The sun slanted in at the windows on one side, there was nothing to shut it out. It would go all round the house now, and seem to end where it began, in the garden. Chilian was very fond of it. He always brought his book to the table; he liked to eat slowly, to gaze out and digest one or two thoughts at his leisure, as well as the delightful breakfast set before him. He was a man of delicate tastes and much refinement, for with all the New England sturdiness, hardness one might say, there was in many families a strain of what we might term high breeding. His face, with its clear-cut features, indicated this. His hair was rather light, fine, with a few waves in it that gave it a slightly tumbled lookÑfar from any touch of disorder. His eyes were a deep, clear blue, his complexion fair enough for a woman. His father and grandfather had lived and died in this house. He had bought out his sister's share when she married, and she had gone to Providence. He had asked the two relatives of his fatherÑtermed cousins by courtesyÑto continue housekeeping. They were the last of their family and in rather straitened circumstances. Miss Elizabeth was nearing sixty, tall, straight, fair, and rather austere-looking. Eunice was two years younger, shorter, a trifle stouter, with a rounder face, and a mouth that wore a certain sweetness when it did not actually smile. Chilian was past thirty. He was a Harvard graduate, and now went in two days each week for teaching classes. His father had left some business interests in Salem, rather distasteful to him, but he was a strictly conscientious person and attended to them, if with a sort of mental protest. For the rest, he was a bookworm and revelled in intellectual pursuits.

Book Short Summary:

Kate is in the not necessarily sad limbo of widowhood when Big Murdo and Wee Murdo arrive in her kitchen with alarming news. Hasn't she heard about her daughter Mhairi's marriage? Confronting Mhairi on her return from college, Kate finds that she is indeed married, and what's more, has a baby on the way. But the husband isn't the father, and the father is nowhere to be found... Circling at the very edge of this picture is Jamie, a homeless young man fleeing ghosts of his own. When Mhairi is driven to a terrible act, his path briefly crosses the women's, with surprising consequences. Offering a wry contemporary perspective on Highland life, Upstairs in the Tent is a warm, forgiving novel about people's need to find their home in the world.

Book Short Summary:

This carefully crafted ebook: "The Bell Jar" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. Esther Greenwood, a young woman from the suburbs of Boston, gains a summer internship at a prominent magazine in New York City, under editor Jay Cee; however, Esther is neither stimulated nor excited by either the big city or the glamorous culture and lifestyle that girls her age are expected to idolize and emulate. She instead finds her experience to be frightening and disorienting. From hereafter her mental state keeps deteriorating until she starts feeling helpless as if being kept inside a glass bell jar! The Bell Jar is the only novel written by the American writer and poet Sylvia Plath. Originally published under the pseudonym "Victoria Lucas" in 1963, the novel is semi-autobiographical, with the names of places and people changed. The book is often regarded as a roman à clef because the protagonist's descent into mental illness parallels Plath's own experiences with what may have been clinical depression or bipolar II disorder. Plath died by suicide a month after its first UK publication. The novel was published under Plath's name for the first time in 1967 and was not published in the United States until 1971, in accordance with the wishes of both Plath's husband, Ted Hughes, and her mother.

Book Short Summary:

How do gender relations affect the practice of journalism? Despite the star status accorded to some women reporters, and the dramatic increase in the number of women working in journalism, why do men continue to occupy most senior management positions? And why do female readers, viewers and listeners remain as elusive as ever? News, Gender and Power addresses the pressing questions of how gender shapes the forms, practice, institutions and audiences of journalism. The contributors, who include John Hartley, Pat Holland, Jenny Kitzinger and Myra Macdonald, draw on feminist theory and gender-sensitive critiques to explore media issues such as: * ownership and control * employment and occupation status * the representation of women in the media * the sexualization of news and audience research. Within this framework the contributors explore media coverage of: * the trial of O. J. Simpson * British beef and the BSE scandal * the horrific crimes of Fred and Rosemary West * child sexual abuse and false memory syndrome * the portrayal of women in TV documentaries such as Modern Times and Cutting Edge.

Book Short Summary:

Be careful what you wish for! For fans of slow building, character driven, intense and compelling psychological thrillers. A self-obsessed Japanese icon appears to have a perfect life. Fame, fortune, and a celebrity marriage… but all is not as it seems. Yayoi wears her glamor like a mask. There are dark corners of her life she wants to hide from her many fans. An abusive husband, an oppressive recording contract with J-BIG Corp, a company controlled by her husband's family that is crushing her creativity. Then there are all her memories of a life swept away by a tsunami. While in New Zealand to film a music video, she is surprised by her estranged husband Nori, who without warning appears at her hotel and assaults her. On the run from both Nori and J-BIG, she meets Bill, a young corporate attorney recently made redundant, who plans to revisit his past in the hope he can heal old wounds and reshape his future. Although from two very different worlds, they find themselves falling for each other, both unaware of the extreme measures Nori will take to get Yayoi to return to Japan with him. The Girl With Two Names is set in urban Japan and the raw backwoods of New Zealand. NB : the book, as stated above, is a psychological thriller. You are being purposefully placed in the head of a heroine with strong personality flaws that do have severe outcomes for those who allow her into their lives. This is an important aspect of the story. _______________________ Four out of four stars! - Official Review, Online Book Club
