Love Lost, Love Found, Illicit Love All? "Roman Fever" is a short story by American writer Edith Wharton. It was first published in the magazine Liberty in 1934, and was later included in... More > Wharton's last short-story collection, The World Over. The setting of the story takes place in the afternoon, in the city of Rome. Two wealthy middle-aged widowed women are visiting Rome with their two unmarried daughters. The exotic setting illustrates the power and class from which the women hail, but the Old Rome context, such as the Colosseum, insinuates Roman Empire-style intrigue. Mrs. Ansley and Mrs. Slade have a bittersweet relationship filled with envy, betrayal, and competition. They compare their lifelong battle for one man, Delphin Slade, and now quarrel regarding who has the more impressive daughter, both of whom, ironically, share the same father...

Crowskin- a medieval travesty By Albin Wallace
Paperback: $16.20
Prints in 3-5 business days
Poor Marc De Jolay. He is chronically depressed and stuck in the Middle Ages. And to make matters worse, he is dead. Part satire and part allegory, Crowskin: a Medieval Travesty is a paean to... More > melancholia, self-loathing and bad luck. Illustrated with drawings by Hieronymus Bosch, Marc's descent into his own personal hell is narrated with the wisdom of someone who has outlived his own death. He takes a jaundiced pilgrimage through the Grail legend, the Holy Land and, inexplicably, the Tarot deck. He eventually becomes Grand Master of a Military Order almost, but not quite totally unlike the Knights Templar and meets an anachronistic demise at the hands of some nice gentlemen from the Spanish Inquisition.< Less
This Time Next Year By Liz Hinds

When her decree absolute arrives in the post with her 50th birthday cards Alison Turner wonders if middle age life can get any worse. When the highlights of the last year include being told off by... More > the plumber for ‘putting feminine items of hygiene down the lavatory’, and her husband leaving her for a 28-year-old ‘bimbo’, it’s easy to understand why Alison exclaims in her diary, ‘I do not want another year like that. I must get a new plumber.’ But if the romantic aspect of Alison’s life leaves a lot to be desired (including sex, which is something the rest of her family appear to be enjoying) the everyday aspect is full of incident. In a year of well-intentioned ineptitude, as Alison records in her diary, she is thrown out of a pub for the first time in her life, begins to diet eight times (at least), finds out twelve unappealing things about dogs and discovers that first impressions can sometimes be misleading.< Less
The Seven Streams Warwick Deeping By Warwick Deeping
Paperback: $9.99
Prints in 3-5 business days
The Seven Streams by Warwick Deeping Tristan le Sauvage left the Purple Isle upon a knightly quest - to recover his sister from The Land of Seven Streams. Two months had passed since a great ship,... More > with gleaming sails, had swooped like a falcon upon Purple Isle, and carried thence that white dove, Columbe the Fair. In the Land of Seven Streams, Tristan finds many other knightly services in the struggle between papacy and people, and again, between the broken ranks of the Christians and the Saracen hordes. The book is a charming romance, where Deeping simulates a historical realism by depicting Arthur's world not as the chivalrous court of the late Middle Ages as found in Malory (followed by Tennyson and most nineteenth-century poets), but as the more appropriately rugged tribal society of the sixth century. Yet even this seeming realism soon yields romance, for the world of Deeping's novels depicts Roman elegance more than the crude realities of Saxon invasions and Briton resistance.< Less
