Magic, A Fantastic Comedy (the play) By G.K. Chesterton
eBook (PDF): $2.95
Magic was G.K. Chesterton's first play. When it appeared, his reputation had already been made: his occasionally ramshackle brilliance could illuminate essays (The Defendant), novels (The Napoleon of... More > Notting Hill, The Man Who Was Thursday), criticism (Robert Browning, Charles Dickens), philosophy (Orthodoxy), detective stories (The Innocence of Father Brown), verse (The Ballad of the White Horse) ... and more. It was Chesterton's literary sparring partner George Bernard Shaw who demanded that he write a play. A 1908 letter threatens: "I shall repeat my public challenge to you; vaunt my superiority; insult your corpulence; torture Belloc; if necessary, call on you and steal your wife's affections by intellectual and athletic displays, until you contribute something to the British drama." Shaw even issued Chesterton with a plot, about the horrified return of St.Augustine to the England he dimly remembered converting. Unfortunately this play was never written. The indirect result was Magic.< Less

Hint: You can preview this book by clicking on "Preview" which is located under the cover of this book. About the author: Thomas Anstey Guthrie (8 August 1856 - 10 March 1934) was an... More > English novelist and journalist, who wrote his comic novels under the pseudonym F. Anstey.He was born in Kensington, London, to Augusta Amherst Austen, an organist and composer, and Thomas Anstey Guthrie. He was educated at King's College School and at Trinity Hall, Cambridge, and was called to the bar in 1880. But the popular success of his story Vice Versa (1882) with its topsy turvy substitution of a father for his schoolboy son, at once made his reputation as a humorist of an original type. In 1883, he published a serious novel, The Giant's Robe; but he discovered (and again in 1889 with The Pariah) that it was not as a serious novelist but as a humorist that the public insisted on regarding him.

The Lexman Spacedrive gave man the stars—but at a fantastic price. Interstellar exploration, colonization, and trade became things of reality. The benefits to Earth were enormous. But because... More > of the Fitzgerald Contraction, a man who shipped out to space could never live a normal life on Earth again. Travelling at speeds close to that of light, spacemen lived at an accelerated pace. A nine-year trip to Alpha Centauri and back seemed to take only six weeks to men on a spaceship. When they returned, their friends and relatives had aged enormously in comparison, old customs had changed, even the language was different. So they did the only thing they could do. They formed a guild of Spacers, and lived their entire lives on the starships, raised their families there, and never set foot outside their own Enclave during their landings on Earth. It is a pleasure to publish this new, high quality, and affordable edition of this fantastic story.< Less
