More > 1 September 1943) was an English author of short stories and novels. Although much of his work was humorous, he is most famous for his horror story "The Monkey's Paw".Jacobs was born in Wapping, London; his father was a wharf manager at the South Devon wharf at Lower East Smithfield. He was educated at a private school in London and later at Birkbeck College (then called Birkbeck Literary and Scientific Institution, now part of the University of London).In 1879, Jacobs began work as a clerk in the civil service, in the Post Office Savings Bank, and by 1885 he had his first short story published.

Her neighbor Margaret wrote a humorous story about farm life and it was published in Ag Youth magazine. "After reading Margaret's story, I thought about all the stories that I could write, too.

Not Quite Leaping Puddles By Barbara Blanks
eBook (ePub): $2.99
(1 Ratings)
This collection of award winning poems captures the extremes, in-betweens, and sunbeams people experience—past and present, humorous and serious. Obviously life is neither all good nor all... More > bad—all we can do is splash from puddle to puddle. Sometimes landing in puddles is fun. Sometimes they hide sinkholes. It’s always our choice how we deal with it. Still, while we’re in mid-leap—oh, the possibilities! From Eve winning the battle of the sexes, to Elvis resting his pelvis; from a civil war post office to social media, from survival to recovery, Barbara Blanks believes “grief is no place to linger or dwell.” She also refuses to have a “rendezvous with death” because she doesn’t want to leave “this most amazing place.” She “tastes poetry, crunching it like popcorn.” and pretends she knows the words to “the sound of Moses.”< Less

Years of working as a trial attorney and judge taught Randy McGrath countless lessons about human folly and hubris. In this book, McGrath reveals many of those lessons through stories, both humorous... More > and sad. His stories include the robber who didn’t bother to change his identifiable clothing after his getaway—and the murderer who changed his appearance as he ran, significantly undermining his insanity defense. Then there’s the rapist who asked his victim for a date, and the rapist who declined a generous plea deal only to wind up with a much longer sentence. McGrath also bares some weak spots in the judicial system, from prosecutors who let law enforcement officers’ opinions influence their prosecutorial judgment to defense attorneys who aren’t adequately committed to representing their clients. Readers, as the author, will learn lessons about people, crime and justice in these true tales from inside and out of the courtroom.< Less
