L'INTERROGATORIO. IL QUASI THE END...- Cosa dianolo sta succedendo in questa saranza, Rinaldi? E poi tu! Richard, cosa ti ha preso oggi di venire qui in Italia senza dirmi niente ed io credevo che stessi a Nizza per quell'affare importante. E non credo ai miei occhi Jessica! Ho sempre saputo che odiavi venire a Roma per le vacanze.- Disse Claude guardandoli uno per uno negli occhi per scoprire cosa diavolo stava accadendo in quell'ufficio. Dalla voce di lui sembrava seccato e confuso per quella riunione un po' ambigua. Vi era anche, non per ultimo come importanza, il signor Harrison di Lione. Il loro piano era in pericolo sul serio, pensò Rinaldi nella sua mente ancora in sobbuglio per quella venuta a sorpresa proprio del Boss supremo. Ma caro Claude, non sono qui per le vacanze bensì per degli affari privati con alcuni amici di vecchia data! Non ti preoccupare tesoro caro!- Mentre parlava si muoveva in maniera assai seducente, come se fosse in una sfilata di moda, la donna si era appoggiata sul braccio dell'uomo sconosciuto, Claude ma all'improvviso lui stesso si era scansato del tutto. Come se volesse sfuggire da un pericolos...

Two Sides To Every Question: From A South Australian Standpoint

By: Maud Jean Franc

'Two Sides to Every Question’: From a South Australian Standpoint is a meditation on poverty, wealth, and social aspiration set in the free settlement of Adelaide in pre-Federation Australia. The novel follows the lives of a cast of characters from different social classes as they negotiate the twists and turns in their respective fortunes. The newly-bereaved Alton family—an invalid widow and her two grown children, Tom and Nettie—sell their rural property and move to the slovenly back streets of the inner-city; they are determined to hold onto their dignity and values as they turn to earning a living for the first time. The wealthy Clinton family runs the stock supply business where Tom finds employment as a clerk. Tom’s boss, Robert Clinton, supplements his business income through trading mining shares. His financial success ensures his wife and daughters, Elsie and Lily, have access to the higher echelons of colonial society. Meanwhile, the Clintons' cousin, Arthur Delta, arrives from England to take a position in his uncle’s business. Arthur's mother has called on her brother's charity to help her family in their time of need. W...

Knyght Ther Was, A

By: Robert F. Young

But the Knyght was a little less than perfect, and his horse did not have a metabolism, and his 'castle' was much more mobile - timewise! - than it had any business being! In 2178, once time travel had become a simple task, it had also been outlawed. Those who chose to ingnore this law were known as time-thieves, and Tom Mallory was among the best of them. When he learns the precise whereabouts of the Holy Grail in 542, he sets out to obtain it with the intention of returning it to the 22nd century to make a handsome profit and to settle on Get-Rich-Quick Street. Off to the year 542 he travels to the castle of Carbonek where the great Knight Sir Launcelot is said to have possession of the Sangraal. (Summary by Roger Melin with quote from Analog Science Fact & Fiction July 1963)...

Dangerous Days

By: Mary Roberts Rinehart

Dangerous Days opens in a still neutral America, though within a year the country will have joined the European alliance against the Central Powers in the first world war. Clayton Spencer, a successful industrialist and owner of a munitions plant, finds himself facing several problems: not only anarchism and German sabotage, but also the prospect of a deteriorating marriage, and of a son who all too often shares his mother's frivolous and essentially self-concerned point of view. How far will America's entry into the war change such views? What will it mean for Spencer, for his family, and for his business? (Summary by Nicholas Clifford)...

Oracolo

By: Giuliano Pergreffi

Per caso, a Rio de Janeiro, si ritrovano le tracce di uno degli oggetti più ricercati della storia. E' fatto di metallo e ha la forma di una testa, può dare indicazioni sul futuro generando un esagramma, che deve poi essere interpretato con l'aritmetica binaria. Ha iniziato il suo viaggio circa duemila anni fa in Tibet, facendo tappa in Palestina. Arrivato nel Nuovo Mondo è stato preso in consegna dagli uomini-pipistrello, una Specie di Indios che comunica con ultrasuoni e vede nel buio. E' stato chiamato in passato il Baphomet dei Templari. Un etnologo fai-da-te, aiutato da una funzionaria del Jardim Botanico di Rio, un latinista d'esportazione, un narco-trafficante internazionale e una ambiziosa Mae de Santo, leader della Macumba, si trovano coinvolti nello strano affare nella città carioca. L'etnologo è alla ricerca di uno scoop sul VoooDoo mentre il latinista viene semplicemente chiamato in causa senza averlo desiderato; il narco-trafficante cerca unicamente di incrementare il suo business e invece la Mae de Santo è alla ricerca del Potere Esoterico. A loro insaputa sono tutti sulle tracce di qualcosa di importante, che interess...

SHY FEET Part One Thirty-seven years ago, I was born into debt. I arrived two weeks early, surprising both my mother and the woman whose hair she was cutting. Before I’d even entered the world, I owed my mother the price of her customer’s leather loafers. Thirty years ago, a teacher told my mother to keep an eye on me. I was “frighteningly astute" and “abnormally self-aware” for my age. In other words, I was going places. Twenty-eight years ago, I paid my mother back for those leather loafers with money I made from selling jars of jam to our neighbours. Every Sunday evening I would stand on a stool in front of our gas stove and stir a viscose pink liquid around a giant saucepan. Behind me, my mother would hold her breath as I poured the hot mixture into jars, never spilling a drop. Twenty-six years ago, I began secondary school. Within weeks I learnt that with very little effort I could get top marks in most subjects. I rarely studied more than I had to and I blitzed through my homework on the school bus home. While Mum finished work in the front room, I cooked dinner for us both, listening to her scissors snip through ...

Adelaide's Pinnygig

By: Ms. Melody Ayres-Griffiths

Adelaide, a Canadian teenage girl, flees across a wintery landscape to evade an assassin sent to steal her guinea pig.

FOREWORD: A BRIEF INTRODUCTION. MANY NOTEWORTHY EFFORTS, both scholarly and otherwise, have been made in modern times to chronicle the events that took place at the dawn of the Twenty-First century, before the Fall and the subsequent New Enlightenment, but none have focussed so completely on the human element as what we, the Publishers, proudly present to you here. The recent discovery of Adelaide Pemberton’s journal has provided us with some unique glimpses into that banished Age of over five-hundred years past; however, those writings are woefully incomplete, and educated speculation is required to draw a coherent picture of those most-important events as experienced and witnessed by the one deemed most critical to the foundation of our present society. Therefore, we have commissioned esteemed psycho- historian Doctor Judith Burnley to construct for us a credible interpretation of the thoughts and convictions held by one of the most mythic figures from human history; this has been an undertaking that, we are well assured, was not taken lightly. Ladies and Gentlemen, we proudly give to you: “Adelaide’s Pinnygig”. The...

The Last Chronicle of Barset

By: Anthony Trollope

Excerpt: Chapter 1. How did he get it? ?I can never bring myself to believe it, John,? said Mary Walker the pretty daughter of Mr. George Walker, attorney of Silverbridge. Walker and Winthrop was the name of the firm, and they were respectable people, who did all the solicitors? business that had to be done in that part of Barsetshire on behalf of the Crown, were employed on the local business of the Duke of Omnium, who is great in those parts, and altogether held their heads up high, as provincial lawyers often do. They--the Walkers--lived in a great brick house in the middle of the town, gave dinners, to which the county gentlemen not unfrequently condescended to come, and in a mild way led the fashion in Silverbridge. ?I can never bring myself to believe it, John,? said Miss Walker....

The Aspern Papers

By: Henry James

Excerpt: I had taken Mrs. Prest into my confidence; in truth without her I should have made but little advance, for the fruitful idea in the whole business dropped from her friendly lips. It was she who invented the short cut, who severed the Gordian knot. It is not supposed to be the nature of women to rise as a general thing to the largest and most liberal view--I mean of a practical scheme; but it has struck me that they sometimes throw off a bold conception--such as a man would not have risen to-- with singular serenity....

Cousin Pons

By: Honoré de Balzac

Excerpt: Towards three o?clock in the afternoon of one October day in the year 1844, a man of sixty or thereabouts, whom anybody might have credited with more than his actual age, was walking along the Boulevard des Italians with his head bent down, as if he were tracking some one. There was a smug expression about the mouth--he looked like a merchant who has just done a good stroke of business, or a bachelor emerging from a boudoir in the best of humors with himself; and in Paris this is the highest degree of self-satisfaction ever registered by a human countenance....

The Writings of Abraham Lincoln in Seven Volumes Volume 2 of 7

By: Abraham Lincoln

Excerpt: Dear Speed, yours of the 9th instant is duly received, which I do not meet as a ?bore,? but as a most welcome visitor. I will answer the business part of it first. In relation to our Congress matter here, you were right in supposing I would support the nominee. Neither Baker nor I, however, is the man, but Hardin, so far as I can judge from present appearances. We shall have no split or trouble about the matter; all will be harmony. In relation to the ?coming events? about which Butler wrote you, I had not heard one word before I got your letter; but I have so much confidence in the judgment of Butler on such a subject that I incline to think there may be some reality in it. What day does Butler appoint? By the way, how do ?events? of the same sort come on in your family? Are you possessing houses and lands, and oxen and asses, and men-servants and maid-servants, and begetting sons and daughters? We are not keeping house, but boarding at the Globe Tavern, which is very well kept now by a widow lady of the name of Beck....
