Smith and the Pharaohs, And Other Tales

By: Henry H. H. Rider Haggard

Author?s Note: On several previous occasions it has happened to this writer of romance to be justified of his romances by facts of startling similarity, subsequently brought to light and to his knowledge. In this tale occurs an instance of the sort, a ?double-barrelled? instance indeed, that to him seems sufficiently curious to be worthy of telling. The People of the Mist of his adventure story worship a sacred crocodile to which they make sacrifice, but in the original ...

Annie Kilburn a Novel

In St. Juergen

By: Theodor W. Storm

Novelle (1867) Es ist nur ein schmuckloses Stadtchen, meine Vaterstadt; sie liegt in einer baumlosen Kustenebene, und ihre Hauser sind alt und finster. Dennoch habe ich sie immer fur einen angenehmen Ort gehalten, und zwei den Menschen heilige Vogel scheinen diese Meinung zu teilen. Bei hoher Sommerluft schweben fortwahrend Storche uber der Stadt, die ihre Nester unten auf den Dachern haben; und wenn im April die ersten Lufte aus dem Suden wehen, so bringen sie gewib die...

Eugene Aram, Book 2

By: Edward Bulwer Lytton

Aram?s affection to Madeline having now been formally announced to Lester, and Madeline?s consent having been somewhat less formally obtained, it only remained to fix the time for their wedding. Though Lester forbore to question Aram as to his circumstances, the Student frankly confessed, that if not affording what the generality of persons would consider even a competence, they enabled one of his moderate wants and retired life to dispense, especially in the remote and ...

Pellucidar

By: Edgar Rice Burroughs

Prologue: SEVERAL YEARS had elapsed since I had found the op-portunity to do any big-game hunting; for at last I had my plans almost perfected for a return to my old stamping-grounds in northern Africa, where in other days I had had excellent sport in pursuit of the king of beasts. The date of my departure had been set; I was to leave in two weeks. No schoolboy counting the lagging hours that must pass before the beginning of ?long vacation? released him to the delirious...

Pointed Roofs

By: Dorothy Richardson

Miriam left the gas lit hall and went slowly upstairs. The March twilight lay upon the landings, but the staircase was almost dark. The top landing was quite dark and silent. There was no one about. It would be quiet in her room. She could sit by the fire and be quiet and think things over until Eve and Harriett came back with the parcels. She would have time to think about the journey and decide what she was going to say to the Fraulein.

The Octopus

By: Frank Norris

Just after passing Caraher?s saloon, on the County Road that ran south from Bonneville, and that divided the Broderson ranch from that of Los Muertos, Presley was suddenly aware of the faint and prolonged blowing of a steam whistle that he knew must come from the railroad shops near the depot at Bonneville. In starting out from the ranch house that morning, he had forgotten his watch, and was now perplexed to know whether the whistle was blowing for twelve or for one o?c...

The Seats of the Mighty, Volume 1

By: Parker, Gilbert, 1862-1932

Introduction: It was in the winter of 1892, when on a visit to French Canada, that I made up my mind I would write the volume which the public knows as ?The Seats of the Mighty,? but I did not begin the composition until early in 1894. It was finished by the beginning of February, 1895, and began to appear in ?The Atlantic Monthly? in March of that year. It was not my first attempt at historical fiction, because I had written ?The Trail of the Sword? in the year 1893, bu...

All's for the Best

By: T. S. Arthur

?I HAVE no faith in anything,? said a poor doubter, who had trusted in human prudence, and been disappointed; who had endeavored to walk by the lumine of self-derived intelligence, instead of by the light of divine truth, and so lost his way in the world. He was fifty years old! What a sad confession for a man thus far on the journey of life. ?No faith in anything.? ?You have faith in God, Mr. Fanshaw,? replied the gentleman to whom the remark was made. ?In God? I don?t ...

In the Fire of the Forge, Vol. 5

The vesper bells had already died away, yet Heinz was still listening eagerly to the aged Minorite, who was now relating the story of St. Francis, his breach with everything that he loved, and the sorrowful commencement of his life. The monk could have desired no more attentive auditor. Only the young knight often looked out of the window in search of Biberli, who had not yet returned.

The Mysteries of Udolpho : A Romance; Interspersed with Some Piece...

By: Ann Radcliffe

On the pleasant banks of the Garonne, in the province of Gascony, stood, in the year 1584, the chateau of Monsieur St. Aubert. From its windows were seen the pastoral landscapes of Guienne and Gascony stretching along the river, gay with luxuriant woods and vine, and plantations of olives. To the south, the view was bounded by the majestic Pyrenees, whose summits, veiled in clouds, or exhibiting awful forms, seen, and lost again, as the partial vapors rolled along, were ...
