In this sequel to Robur the Conqueror (Clipper of the Sky) Verne teases the reader with a seemingly new, yet familiar, antagonist. A Federal policeman, Strock, is sent out to find the inventor of a... More > mystery submersible seen plying the waters of Lake Erie. All attempts to legitimately purchase this fantastic submarine b the government have failed and it is feared that the man behind it may have an evil intent. Strock and two companions locate the sub and he is taken prisoner by its captain. As they escape some of the swiftest boats on the lake, Strock is treated to an experience unlike any other in a vessel unlike any other. His captor is unveiled as being self-proclaimed The Master of the World! This novel is not like the movie of the same name. That cinema feature was more akin to the first book in this duo, Clipper of the Sky. However, this may be read alone and full enjoyment of the story can be achieved. Also includes a special bonus story, Drama In The Air, about an interesting balloon trip!< Less

A man's struggle to make amends for his scuttled mariachi career. Contains some violence, and awkward attempts at intimacy. This is first edition of Amor Asqueroso, replete with formatting snafus and... More > editing boogers. As the Editorial Board toiled on the draft, it was their custom to take frequent "nips” from the wine box. Upon finishing the project, the staff was proud that not a page was stained by the port, but was astonished that there were absolutely no changes made to the draft, after all. The editorial board’s magnificent challenge had atrophied into something similar to a Schnapps-sodden sandbag project on a Lake Erie beach. You see a cactus, the editors see a shot of Patrón. This is history’s finest telenovela in its pristine state, just as it was hurled from the writers’ ball point pens. We thank all the fine contributors to the script, for they sacrificed their dignity and an hour of their Saturday afternoon to gift this masterpiece with their words. May they avoid ridicule.< Less

How Canada Was Won : A Tale of Wolfe and Quebec (Illustrated) By F. S. Brereton
eBook (ePub): $1.99
“For there was war between the colonial French and the colonial English, and for some little time now the two nations had been engaged in a cruel frontier struggle. In Europe, however, France... More > and England were outwardly at peace, so far as those in America knew, though the spring of the year above mentioned saw England's patience at last destroyed, and a formal declaration of war made. Still, these backwoodsmen had no notion of that, nor had the numerous French voyageurs and soldiers who had come across Lake Erie and had marched down into the valley of the Ohio. That was the disputed ground, where the bold English pioneers had settled their log huts and taken up holdings, believing themselves to be on British soil. And now hordes of French, accompanied by their priests and by thousands of Indians, were pushing south and west, were expelling the British colonists, and too often were exterminating them.”< Less

1890 Dystopian Science Fiction Thus far we have the testimony of Professor West as to the most apparent faults of what we now call the old order of society. He left behind him other writings than... More > that from which I have just quoted, and these writings (among them, a diary of the events which he took part in) I shall have occasion to quote from later on. After his death at the battle of Lake Erie, his papers were taken possession of by the Chinese authorities, and upon my appointment to this professorship at Shawmut College, were delivered to me. Your previous studies will have told you what professor West mentions in his book, that the Nationalist idea of government prevailed at the opening of this century, in all of Europe, all of North America and in the greater part of South America, I do not think that he mentions that the Nationalistic notions also prevailed to an extent in India and Russian Asia; nor that the Nationalists of Great Britain had secured a quiet government only after...< Less
