A Kingdom Divided By Christopher Mark Piper
eBook (PDF): $29.88
It is possible I have created a new genre of writing with this work - A work of large proportions, practically 12-months in the accomplishment thereof. 60,000-words in theatrical-action and... More > dialogues; a further 60,000-words in scholarly-footnotes immediately accessible throughout the work, and affording greater comprehensibility to the text, in lieu of tragicomical undertones and/or historical overtones. The entire work tends to be an expose of the so-called "Golden-Age of Elizabeth ('Gloriana') the First", with character-portraits worthy of the "historian" throughout - and I would stylize myself such, in lieu of Maritain's wonderful definition quoted as a summary text-header prior to one of the Act-Chapters in this book. Melodrama and humorousness are present throughout this "intended for theatre" work; and its history puts our present "modernity" into truer perspective and a more informed and understandable context - I found it entertaining in the writing. I hope you will find it so...in the reading!< Less

What if... Mars invaded Earth in 1987, and then again in 1938? Venus is a lush jungle planet abundant with life, and where dinosaurs still roam? Nuclear rockets ply the space lanes between Earth,... More > Mars, Venus and the asteroids? Psionics and other powers are a reality? The year is 1959? Worlds United is a Mythras campaign setting where the Golden Age of Science Fiction really happened. Gernsback-era gleaming alloy air cars cruise the highways of America, and humans mingle with winged Martians, Venusian lizard men, and the strange Ophidians who are masters of chemistry. Yet, while the vampiric octopoids of the first two Martian invasions have not been seen in a generation, somewhere below Olympus Mons, steadily, they are drawing their plans against us. In Worlds United, your characters are adventurers with extraordinary powers. This is a game for John Carters, Doc Savages, Lensmen of all hues, and the strange, exotic, planetary adventure stories of Clarke Ashton Smith and Jack Vance.< Less

The Polish Patriot By Uri Jerzy Nachimson
eBook (PDF): $8.99
(3 Ratings)
A Polish patriot, who renounced his country, which had betrayed him and his people. Jews had lived in Poland for nearly one thousand years and helped shape its culture and industry. His family was... More > well endowed with professionals. His father was a distinguished lawyer who worked for the Ministry of Finance. The war destroyed his world, interrupted his dreams and forced him to deal with new realities. His loyalty and love for the old Poland that he knew so well slowly began to fade when he discovered that his nationalism was based on misconceptions about his Polish “brethren.” The Nazi occupation gave his Polish neighbors a golden opportunity to get rid of the “Dirty Jews” and enabled them to steal their property. Many readily collaborated with the Nazis during the war, and there were even those who killed many survivors after the war. Although he unwillingly renounced his old homeland, nevertheless, he loved its culture and lived as a Pole in his new country until his death at age ninety-three.< Less

Gerrit Dou: 90 Masterpieces By Maria Tsaneva
eBook (ePub): $1.99
Gerrit Dou was a Dutch Golden Age painter, whose small, highly polished paintings are typical of the Leiden fijnschilders. He specialised in genre scenes and is noted for his "niche"... More > paintings and candlelit night-scenes with strong chiaroscuro. At a comparatively early point in his career, he developed a distinctive manner of his own which diverged considerably from Rembrandt's, cultivating a minute and elaborate style of treatment. He is said to have spent five days in painting a hand, and his work was so fine that he found it necessary to manufacture his own brushes. His pictures were always small in size. More than 200 are attributed to him, and examples are to be found in most of the major public collections of Europe. His most noted pupils were Frans van Mieris the Elder and Gabriël Metsu. He also taught Bartholomeus Maton, Carel de Moor, Matthijs Naiveu, Abraham de Pape, Godfried Schalcken, Pieter Cornelisz van Slingelandt, Domenicus van Tol, and Pieter Hermansz Verelst.< Less
Jan Steen: 113 Paintings By Maria Tsaneva

Jan Steen was a Dutch genre painter of the Dutch Golden Age 17th century. Psychological insight, sense of humor and abundance of color are marks of his art. Daily life was Jan Steen's main pictorial... More > theme. Many of the genre scenes he portrayed, as in The Feast of Saint Nicholas, are lively to the point of chaos and lustfulness. Many of Steen's paintings bear references to old Dutch proverbs or literature. He often used members of his family as models, and painted quite a few self-portraits in which he showed no tendency of vanity. Steen painted also historical, mythological and religious scenes, portraits, still lifes and natural scenes. His portraits of children are famous. He is also well known for his mastery of light and attention to detail, most notably in persian rugs and other textiles. He was prolific, producing about 800 paintings, of which roughly 350 survive. He did not have many students but his work proved a source of inspiration for many painters.< Less
