This book has been prepared for the benefit of people who want the real truth concerning Huey P. Long, which truth has been kept from the public by authors, journalists, and historians. No book on... More > the life of Huey Long has been accurate. All books that have been published concerning this great man have either been published by his enemies, his cynical observers or ignorant historians who have built their books out of the newspaper morgues. This book is written by one knowledgeable concerning his greatness who loved him and respected him and dares, in this volume, to tell things that have never been told before. William Howard Taft, while Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, said: “Huey P. Long is the most brilliant attorney to appear before me during my term as Chief Justice.” Dr. Gerald L. K.

More > indulging in each other’s bodies. When they’re abruptly interrupted, they part ways convinced they’re nothing more than an erotic chapter in the other’s life.

Έρπον πτηνόν άπτερον By Στέφανος Γλαύκωψ
eBook (PDF): $3.20
Αμαυρές πικρόχολες... More > εξωπραγματικές και κυνικές κωμωδίες. ...Πάντα πίστευα ότι το μυαλό των ανθρώπων είναι ανισόρροπο και διεστραμμένο και δεν βλέπω να έχω άδικο, αν κρίνω από αυτά που διαβάζω στην ιστορία και από αυτά που βλέπω και ακούω να λένε και να υποστηρίζουν για σωστά, οι πολιτικοί και όλοι όσοι τους ακολουθούν -δεν φαντάστηκα ποτέ ότι θα ακούσω τόσα ψέματα, ότι θα δω τόσους φόνους και τόση αδικία γύρω μου. Πως εξελίχθηκε έτσι αυτό το θηλαστικό; Τελικά είναι άβυσσος η ανθρώπινη ψυχή. Δεν πιστεύω ότι θα υπάρξει ποτέ ισορροπία και αρμονία μεταξύ των ανθρώπων και αυτό θα έχει επιπτώσεις σε ό,τι άλλο υπάρχει γύρω τους -σε όλα τα άλλα είδη. Οι σημερινοί άνθρωποι είναι ξεροί σαν απολιθωμένα κούτσουρα. Έτσι κατάφεραν να νικήσουν τους βρικόλακες· όταν δαγκώνεις σκληρή τροφή χάνεις τα δόντια σου και όπως είπαμε πριν: Δεν υπάρχουν οδοντίατροι στην Κόλαση! Το μαύρο μάγμα, που ονομάζουμε λάδι πέτρας, αποκωδικοποιείται και ετοιμάζεται να αλλάξει μορφή· όταν θα ξεχωρίσουν την σκόνη από το αίμα και ανεβάσουν...< Less

Hint: You can preview this book by clicking on "Preview" which is located under the cover of this book. About the author: Louis-Henri Murger, also known as Henri Murger and Henry Murger... More > (27 March 1822 – 28 January 1861) was a French novelist and poet.He is chiefly distinguished as the author of Scènes de la vie de bohème, from his own experiences as a desperately poor writer living in a Parisian attic, and member of a loose club of friends who called themselves "the water drinkers" (because they were too poor to afford wine). In his writing he combines instinct with pathos, humour and sadness. The book is the basis for the operas La bohème (Puccini) and La bohème (Leoncavallo), and, at greater removes, the zarzuela Bohemios (Amadeu Vives), the operetta Das Veilchen vom Montmartre (Kálmán) and the Broadway musical Rent.

Десет Цинични Есета (Популярно Мировъзрение) — Изцяло By Chris Myrski
eBook (ePub): $2.99
In Bulgarian. Това е философска книга, но тя е... More > популярна и без особени термини, така че е достъпна за всички. В определена степен цинизмът е мировозрение, което не чете морал (даже обратното), и не идеализира нещата, но, независимо от това, предлага сериозен поглед за света. Според мен тя би трябвало да е интересна за всички млади хора (а и за възрастните), но все пак не е развлекателно четиво. | Цинизмът на автора се състои основно в това да произнася редица, дори шокиращи, твърдения, без да се интересува от необходимостта от прилагане на съответната противошокова терапия, щом тези твърдения са верни в болшинството житейски случаи, защото първоопределящо за него е верността на казаното, а не неговата естетична, морална, идеологическа, и прочее страни. Има, обаче, и един важен момент при цинизма: той може да шокира, но той е /интересен/, а забранения плод е почти винаги по-сладък. Така че, може би, тези цинични есета и да се харесат на читателите?< Less
Десять Циничных Эссе (популярное мировоззрение) — Целиком By Chris Myrski
eBook (ePub): $3.99
In Russian. Это философская книга, но она... More > популярная, без особых терминов, так что доступная для всех. В определенной мере цинизм это мировоззрение, которое не читает мораль (а даже напротив), и не идеализирует вещи, но, тем не менее, дает серьезный взгляд на мир. По моему она должна быть интересной для всех молодых людей (а и для взрослых), но все таки не для развлекательного чтения. | Цинизм автора состоит в основном в том, произносить ряд, даже шокирующих утверждений, не мороча себе голову применять соответствующую анти-шоковую терапию, раз твердения справедливы в большинстве случаев, потому что первоопределяющее для него верность сказанного, а не его эстетическая, моральная, идеологическая, и прочее стороны. Имеется, однако, и ещё один важный момент при цинизме: он может шокировать, но он /интересен/, а запретный плод почти всегда слаще. Так что, может быть, эти циничные эссе и понравятся читателям?< Less
