Giacomo Adoncecchi creates a connection between the world of facts and the one of dreams. It leads us where the dream confuses with the reality, where everything we believe in, suddenly becomes a... More > delusion. The dream has always been one of the most fascinating mysteries that have plagued humans since ancient times, from the Greek mythology to biblical dreams, ending up to psychoanalysis and modern medicine. A dream is now the instrument of God to influence the lives of men, and it’s now, the way to analyze and understand the unconscious. Adoncecchi casts doubts on the very border between dream and reality; he compels us to ask ourselves what is really true and what is not. And, after showing us how thin the line is, he asks us one last question. What is the real power of our mind? What effects can dreams have on our real life? Can they tell us the future? Or they may even create it? Undoubtedly a stimulus to reflect on one of the worlds most unexplored: our mind.< Less
The Great Gatsby By Francis Scott Fitzgerald
eBook (PDF): $1.99
In 1922, F. Scott Fitzgerald announced his decision to write "something new--something extraordinary and beautiful and simple + intricately patterned." That extraordinary, beautiful,... More > intricately patterned, and above all, simple novel became The Great Gatsby, arguably Fitzgerald's finest work and certainly the book for which he is best known.

Self-made, self-invented millionaire Jay Gatsby embodies some of Fitzgerald's--and his country's--most abiding obsessions: money, ambition, greed, and the promise of new beginnings. "Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgiastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that's no matter--tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther.... And one fine morning--" Gatsby's rise to glory and eventual fall from grace becomes a kind.< Less

“... a moment might bring about the revelation of a monstrous horror—a ghastly, deadly danger, set loose and at bay, in a circle of girls and women and careless defenseless men: so... More > hideous and terrible a thing as might crack the brain, or curdle the heart stone dead.” Originally published in 1896, Clemence Housman’s "The Were-Wolf" is a supernatural tale set in the long, cold winter of Norway. The story of a mysterious stranger named White Fell and the twin brothers whose lives she will forever change, "The Were-Wolf" incorporates elements of both Norse mythology and Christian allegory. Charlotte Otten, editor of "The Literary Werewolf" and "A Lycanthropy Reader," said of "The Were-Wolf": “Housman's story of an erotic female werewolf is often referred to as ‘the greatest story of lycanthropy ever written.’” Clemence Annie Housman (1861–1955) was a British novelist, wood engraver and suffragette who wrote The Were-Wolf while studying art in London in 1890.< Less
