Robert Franklin Young (1915–1986) was an American science fiction writer born in Silver Creek, New York. Except for the three and a half years he served in the Pacific during World War II, he spent most of his life in New York State. Although his career spanned more than thirty years, and he wrote fiction until he died, he remained little known by the public, in the United States as well as abroad. He started publishing in 1953 in Startling Stories, then Playboy, The Saturday Evening Post, and Collier’s. His work had a poetic and romantic style that many compared to Ray Bradbury and Theodore Sturgeon.This volume collects 20 of his science fiction and fantasy stories: THE BLACK DEEP THOU WINGEST THE GARDEN IN THE FOREST AUDIENCE REACTION BEAUTY AND THE BEAST STOP-OVER A PATTERN FOR PENELOPE SAINT JULIE AND THE VISGI THE HOUSE AT THE END OF THE STREET ONE LOVE HAVE I THE QUALITY OF MERCY THE GROWN-UP PEOPLE’S FEET PRISONERS OF EARTH THE FIRST SWEET SLEEP OF NIGHT PROMISED PLANET THE QUETENESTEL TOWERS AN APPLE FOR THE TEACHER JUNGLE DOCTOR MORE STATELY MANSIONS LITTLE RED SCHOOLHOUSE THE OTHER KIDS If you enjoy this ebook, don't forget to search your favorite ebook store for "Wildside Press Megapack" to see more of the 300+ volumes in this series, covering adventure, historical fiction, mysteries, westerns, ghost stories, science fiction -- and much, much more!

The Spectre General - Theodore Cogswell Summary

500 years after the Galactic Empire's collapse, the 427th Light Maintenance Battalion of the Imperial Space Marines stubbornly hold onto their mission, training to repair starships that never come. Their equipment gradually wears out and to all outward appearance, they seem to be primitive savages, living by hunting and farming. When a coup removes Colonel Marcus Harris, commander of the maintenance battalion, in favor of his executive officer, the colonel and a loyal second lieutenant, Kurt Dixon, are jailed. When Dixon escapes, he hides in a battle suit to avoid detection. He accidentally activates it and is propelled into outer space. There, he is rescued by a scout of the new Galactic Protectorate...a ramshackle, barely-functioning organization whose leaders are fighting amongst themselves. The Galactic Protectorate, despite its name, has lost most of the technical expertise to do even routine maintenance on their own equipment. Both sides have something the other needs. But can they possibly work together? And if they do, will it be war -- or the start of a new Galactic Empire? Theodore Cogswell's classic science fiction novella is available in ebook form for the first time in more than a decade!

Le Ravissement de Britney Spears - Jean Rolin Summary

ême si l’écriture de ce roman a été précédée d’un séjour de plusieurs semaines à Los Angeles qui lui a permis de nourrir son texte de l’atmosphère de la mégapole de la côte Ouest et, pas du tout accessoirement, de se lier d’amitié avec certains des paparazzis attachés à la traque de Britney Spears... ce nouveau livre de Jean Rolin, n’est pas un récit de voyage, ou une enquête : c’est un roman, un vrai roman... Le quatrième de son auteur : le fait est suffisamment rare pour être souligné. Et salué. Puisqu’un vrai plaisir romanesque est au rendez-vous avec, en plus, les qualités d’investigateur et de narrateur, le talent d’évocation et l’inimitable humour mélancolique que l’on connaît à l’auteur d’Un chien mort après lui.

Snobs - Julian Fellowes Summary

Snobs est le premier roman de Julian Fellowes qui a reçu en 2002 l'Oscar du meilleur scénario pour le film Gosford Park par l'Academy Award de Alen Parker. Le narrateur est un comédien de second plan qui navigue avec beaucoup d'aisance dans les classes privilégiées tout en dénonçant leurs travers. Il va suivre les aventures de son amie, Edith Lavery, la jolie fille d'un expert comptable ayant relativement bien réussi, et de sa femme, éblouie par la haute société. Lors d'une visite au château Broughton Hall, Edith, standardiste dans une agence immobilière de Chelsea, fait connaissance du fils de la maison, Charles, comte Broughton et héritier du marquis de Uckfield. Célibataire, Charles gère les propriétés de sa famille dans le Sussex et le Norfolfk. D'après les chroniqueurs mondains, c'est un des célibataires les plus enviables, et enviés, de l'aristocratie anglaise. Quand il la demande en mariage, Edith accepte, mais est-elle vraiment amoureuse de lui ? N'est ce pas plutôt de son titre, de son rang et de tout ce qui va avec ? Conteur talentueux, Julian Fellowes réussi avec Snobs une délicieuse satire digne de celles de Jane Austen, acidulée d'un soupçon d'Evelyn Waugh.
