Description: Science fiction stories from the #1 New York Times–bestselling author of Spartacus. From one of the most prolific and versatile writers of the twentieth century, The Edge of Tomorrow is a collection of tales that journey outside everyday boundaries to offer insight into our own universe. Featuring big bugs, cloned cats, and feral star-children, these unconventional, thought-provoking stories reveal much about the America of their time, when the Cold War and the nascent civil rights movement stoked unconscious fears and desires. From “The First Men,” about scientists tampering with genetic engineering, to “The Large Ant,” about a man’s thoughtless violence against nature, these stories by the author of April Morning and The Immigrants—described by the Los Angeles Times as “one of our very best”—are as relevant today as when they were first written. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Howard Fast including rare photos from the author’s estate.

Description: Annie married Ed Bauer, reliable and stable, knowing that she would always love Hugh. Annie was a fighter. If she couldn’t have Hugh, she could be his neighbour and social equal. So she fought her way up—up in the world of business, up First Hill—until she made Seattle’s first families stand aside for her. Then tragedy struck, and in her grief Annie returned to the waterfront. When Deming’s business began to slide he went to Annie for help. She gave him all of her savings and the same sort of reckless love she had given him years before. Hugh never forgot what he owed to this gallant woman. Mary Brinker Post has created in Annie Jordan, a girl from Skid Road who knew what she wanted, an unforgettable character, and she has done a superb job in depicting all the color, glitter, and lawlessness of early Seattle.

Description: The book: It surely must be a delight to Mr. Andrew Lang to write off-hand essays like these. Suggestive rather than profound, dainty, and exhibiting subtle skill in the use of words, they seem more like the pastime than the serious employment of a literary man. There is a kind of joyousness and spontaneity about them that is not in accord with our ideas of work. It seems so easy a thing for Mr. Lang to have written them that we are ready to imagine them the result of spare-minute occupation, of " between whiles." Nothing could be more engaging than the pages about certain authors and subjects dear to the essayist. Conspicuous both for their charm and their ardent appreciation are the papers on Alexandre Dumas, Thackeray, Dickens, the poems of Sir Walter Scott, Homer and the study of Greek, and the Sagas. Whether Mr. Lang is a judicial critic of writers with whom he is not in sympathy may be questionable. Probably he would find it difficult to put himself in an attitude to do full justice to the kind of story not to his own personal taste. In the present volume he tries to be severe with Charles Kingsley, but relents, and takes off the edge of disapproval, ending with the generous admission, that " we should read Kingsley; we must not criticise him." So of Mr. Lang; we must enjoy his grace of expression, his almost boyish enthusiasm and freshness, his geniality, and the sweet and wholesome atmosphere we are always conscious of. He has a way with words that is alluring; and the personality of which we have so many glimpses adds the finishing charm. This book is annotated with a rare extensive biographical sketch of the author, Andrew Lang, written by Sir Edmund Gosse, CB, a contemporary poet and writer. Contents: Preface Alexandre Dumas Mr. Stevenson’s Works Thomas Haynes Bayly Théodore De Banville Homer And The Study Of Greek The Last Fashionable Novel Thackeray Dickens Adventures Of Buccaneers The Sagas Charles Kingsley Charles Lever: His Books, Adventures And Misfortunes The Poems Of Sir Walter Scott John Bunyan To A Young Journalist Mr. Kipling’s Stories

Description: A writer finds himself trapped in an isolated village where anything imagined becomes reality in this wildly inventive contemporary fantasy Hoping to write his book in quiet and seclusion, Horton Smith has returned home to Pilot Knob. Here, in the tiny village where he passed so many carefree childhood years, he is untroubled by the pressures of the big city and can freely answer the call of his muse. Of course, back in the city Horton didn’t have to run from dinosaurs. There were no cartoon hillbillies offering him moonshine, Don Quixote was content to confine himself to the pages of a book, and the Devil himself was not on Horton’s tail. Something very, very unusual is going on in Pilot Knob, and Horton Smith is determined to get to the bottom of it—if his own imagination doesn’t kill him first! In Out of Their Minds, science fiction Grand Master Clifford D. Simak changes gears, treating his readers to a delightfully satiric flight of fancy and fantasy. An award-winning author renowned for his remarkable visions of the future, Simak brings creatures and characters from humankind’s collective imagination to breathtaking life in this fast-moving and unforgettable tale.
