  • The Haunter of the Ring and Other Tales (Tales of Mystery & the Supernatural)

    From the unsurpassed imagination of the creator of Conan, Robert E. Howard, here are twenty-one tales of suspense, high adventure and Lovecraftian horror.

  • The Beetle (Wordsworth Mystery & Supernatural) (Tales of Mystery & the Supernatural)

    The Beetle (Wordsworth Mystery & Supernatural) (Tales of Mystery & the Supernatural)

    Karton Kapak
    With an Introduction by David Stuart Davies 'I saw him take a different shape before my eyes. His loose draperies fell about him...and there issued out of them a monstrous creature of the beetle tribe...' From out of the dark and mystic Egypt come The Beetle, a creature of horror, 'born of neither God nor man', which can change its form at will. It is bent on revenge for a crime committed against the devotees of an ancient religion. At large in London, it pursues its victims without mercy and no one, it seems, is safe from its gruesome clutches. Richard Marsh's weird, compelling and highly original novel, which once outsold Dracula, is both a horror masterpiece and a fin de siecle melodrama embracing the fears and concerns of late Victorian society. Long out of print, The Beetle is now available in this Wordsworth edition, ready to chill you to the marrow and give you nightmares.

  • Mont-Oriol

    Karton Kapak
    Comment à force de bluff, de supposés miracles et de faux certificats délivrés par des médecins complaisants on parvient à fabriquer une ville d'eaux et à lotir au plus haut prix un paysage entier en exploitant la crédulité des uns et en s'appuyant sur la malhonnêteté des autres. Le conflit de la bourgeoisie locale, du propriétaire paysan âpre et rusé et de la banque, de l'affairisme parisien. Un des plus cruels portraits du corps médical que l'on ait jamais faits et une histoire sentimentale peut-être plus cruelle encore. En démontant les rouages de la spéculation foncière, en analysant le mécanisme de la concentration capitaliste à la fin du siècle dernier, Maupassant a écrit, avec Mont-Oriol, le plus moderne de ses romans.

  • Pythagoras' Revenge: A Mathematical Mystery

    Sert Kapak
    The celebrated mathematician and philosopher Pythagoras left no writings. But what if he had and the manuscript was never found? Where would it be located? And what information would it reveal? These questions are the inspiration for the mathematical mystery novel Pythagoras' Revenge. Suspenseful and instructive, Pythagoras' Revenge weaves fact, fiction, mathematics, computer science, and ancient history into a surprising and sophisticated thriller. The intrigue begins when Jule Davidson, a young American mathematician who trolls the internet for difficult math riddles and stumbles upon a neo-Pythagorean sect searching for the promised reincarnation of Pythagoras. Across the ocean, Elmer Galway, a professor of classical history at Oxford, discovers an Arabic manuscript hinting at the existence of an ancient scroll--possibly left by Pythagoras himself. Unknown to one another, Jule and Elmer each have information that the other requires and, as they race to solve the philosophical and mathematical puzzles set before them, their paths ultimately collide. Set in 1998 with flashbacks to classical Greece, Pythagoras' Revenge investigates the confrontation between opposing views of mathematics and reality, and explores ideas from both early and cutting-edge mathematics. From academic Oxford to suburban Chicago and historic Rome, Pythagoras' Revenge is a sophisticated thriller that will grip readers from beginning to surprising end.

Now his former lover, Kate Lockhard, has been named as the benefactor of his estate. But Eyam has left her more than just wealth; Kate is also heir to his dangerous secrets.Chilling, absorbing, and unsettlingly realistic, The Bell Ringers is a fearless work from a talented novelist at the top of his game.
