Trans la Spegulo Kaj Kion Alico Trovis Tie

By: Lewis Carroll

Car la sakproblemo, donita en antaua pago, perpleksigis kelkajn miajn legantojn, eble estas dezirinde klarigi ke gi estas korekte ellaborita, rilate al la movigoj . La alternado de Ruga kaj Blanka eble ne estas tute precize observata, kaj la “arokigo” de la tri Reginoj nur signifas ke ili eniris la palacon: sed la “sak!” al la Blanka Rego je movigo 6, la kaptigo de la Ruga Kavaliro je movigo 7, kaj la fina “mato” de la Ruga Rego, trovigos, se oni provos repr...

By: Honoré de Balzac

Ce n'était pas une petite tâche que de peindre les deux ou trois mille figures saillantes d'une époque, car telle est, en définitif, la somme des types que présente chaque génération et que La Comédie Humaine comportera. Ce nombre de figures, de caractères, cette multitude d'existences exigeaient des cadres, et, qu'on me pardonne cette expression, des galeries. De là, les divisions si naturelles, déjà connues, de mon ouvrage en Scènes de la vie privée, de province, paris...

Can Such Things Be?

By: Ambrose Bierce

24 short stories in fairly typical Bierce fashion - ghostly, spooky, to be read (or listened to) in the dark, perhaps with a light crackling fire burning dimly in the background. Stories of ghosts, apparitions, and strange, inexplicable occurrences are prevalent in these tales, some of which occur on or near Civil War fields of battle, some in country cottages, and some within urban areas. Can Such Things Be? implies and relates that anything is possible, at any time. (Summary by Roger Melin)

Fair Rewards, The

By: Thomas Beer

The Fair Rewards by Thomas Beer . . . is a really distiguished novel. The writing is far above the average: it has style and sophistication and personality, intermingled with a truly vivid show of imagination. It even borders on brilliancy, but it is a hard, cold, cynical sort of brilliancy that chills. It almost hurts . . . The title itself is indicative of cynicism. It is derived from Shakespeare's quotation, These be the fair rewards of those that love, and it is an i...
