Strange Commotions by Peter Rhaven Pdf

STRANGE COMMOTIONS This book is a psychological journey into that outer fringe of reality. It is not necessarily meant to be a work of horror, suspense or science fiction, although there are elements of each, but rather a collection of stories that have a tangible sense of apprehension about them. It is more in the traditions of "The Twilight Zone" or "The Outer Limits" and not the typical horror/suspense. Now enter here into the twisted congeries and haunting reflections of the human mind where all strange commotions begin.

The weird and whimsical short stories in Strange Tales from Liaozhai show their author, Pu Songling (1640-1715), to be both an explorer of the macabre, like Edgar Allan Poe, and a moralist, like Aesop.

Annotations are provided to clarify unfamiliar references or cultural allusions, and introductory essays have been included to explain facets of Pu Songling's work and to provide context for some of the unique qualities of his uncanny tales.

Strange Tales from a Chinese Studio by Pu Songling Pdf

The Strange Tales of Pu Songling (1640-1715) are exquisite and amusing miniatures that are regarded as the pinnacle of classical Chinese fiction. With their elegant prose, witty wordplay and subtle charm, the 104 stories in this selection reveal a world in which nothing is as it seems. Here a Taoist monk conjures up a magical pear tree, a scholar recounts his previous incarnations, a woman out-foxes the fox-spirit that possesses her, a child bride gives birth to a thimble-sized baby, a ghostly city appears out of nowhere and a heartless daughter-in-law is turned into a pig. In his tales of humans coupling with shape-shifting spirits, bizarre phenomena, haunted buildings and enchanted objects, Pu Songling pushes back the boundaries of human experience and enlightens as he entertains.

Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke Pdf

In the Hugo-award winning, epic New York Times Bestseller and basis for the BBC miniseries, two men change England's history when they bring magic back into the world. In the midst of the Napoleonic Wars in 1806, most people believe magic to have long since disappeared from England - until the reclusive Mr. Norrell reveals his powers and becomes an overnight celebrity. Another practicing magician then emerges: the young and daring Jonathan Strange. He becomes Norrell's pupil, and the two join forces in the war against France. But Strange is increasingly drawn to the wild, most perilous forms of magic, and he soon risks sacrificing his partnership with Norrell and everything else he holds dear. Susanna Clarke's brilliant first novel is an utterly compelling epic tale of nineteenth-century England and the two magicians who, first as teacher and pupil and then as rivals, emerge to change its history.

THE DEEP-LAKE MYSTERY by Carolyn Wells Pdf

"The Deep Lake Mystery" is a locked-room mystery set in a lake-house in rural North America. Mr. Norris is invited to join his old friend, the detective Keeley Moore at Deep Lake, for a vacation. Their holiday is ruined when one of Moore's neighbors is killed in his own bed under strange circumstances. The only door in or out is locked, all the windows open into a lake too dangerous to dive into, and the dead man is surrounded by an odd assortment of items carefully staged around him. Carolyn Wells (1862-1942) was an American writer and poet. Among the most famous of her mystery novels were the Fleming Stone Detective Stories, and Pennington Wise series. She also wrote several Sherlock Holmes stories.
