    The Black Cat is a short story by Edgar Allan Poe. It was first published in the August 19, 1843, edition of The Saturday Evening Post. It is a study of the psychology of guilt, often paired in analysis with Poe's "The Tell-Tale Heart". In both, a murderer carefully conceals his crime and believes himself unassailable, but eventually breaks down and reveals himself, impelled by a nagging reminder of his guilt. Edgar Allan Poe is also famous for such works as ''The Raven'', "The Cask of Amontillado", "The Fall of the House of Usher", "The Masque of the Red Death", "The Pit and the Pendulum", "The Murders in the Rue Morgue", "The Tell-Tale Heart", "The Gold-Bug", "The Black Cat", "The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar", "Hop-Frog"  and many more.

    'The Overtone' looks at a sterile marriage with no children and no spontaneous sexual feeling between the couple. Lawrence seems to lose interest in the story, although he introduces a younger woman, who walks away baffled at the end. His purpose seems to be to analyse the relationship between men and women in religious terms - Christianity for the women and the old Pan religion for the men. Lawrence produces some fine writing but the argument at the end of the story seems contrived.

    This story is unique because it doesn’t look like other short stories. It seems more like a draft of a book that is going to be made. There are two versions of this story: the short one and the long one. The short is originally published in Royal Press in 1902 and the long version was edited by anonymous.  "The Mysterious Ship" is a fascinating and sinister story about the ship. The ship is enigmatic because when it appeared – one person would disappear. The captain of the ship should be caught to solve that mystery. But who is he? Maybe, he is not even a human. Read the book to solve the mystery of the ship.A SmartTouch Media production.

    The planet where his new plantation was established was very strange, with a complete lack of sex; all of his workers and all the animals and plants had no sex at all; they were all 'its'.    But like every farmer on every planet, Duncan had to hunt down anything that damaged his crops—and whatever animal ate his vua plants was going to die.  Of course he had no idea what this one looked like or what it was like, but whatever it was, he would track it and his rifle would bring it down.  It was a very interesting hunt with a very interesting ending.  Simak has written another delightful story that will keep you listening and wondering to the very end.  With maybe a chuckle and guffaw on top.   Listen and find out why.

    “Blurs the often fine lines between literary and genre fictions, allegory and horror, magical realism and bizarro . . . An unforgettable reading experience” (The New York Journal of Books).   A nineteenth-century minister builds an elaborate motor that will bring about the Second Coming. A man with rough hands locks a boy in a room with an albino ape. An apocalyptic army falls under a veil of forgetfulness. The story of Red Riding Hood is run through a potentially endless series of iterations. A father invents an elaborate, consuming game for his hospitalized son. Indexes, maps, a checkered shirt buried beneath a blanket of snow: they are scattered through these pages as clues to mysteries that may never be solved, lingering evidence of the violence and unknowability of the world.   Named one of the best books of the year by the Chicago Review of Books, A Tree or a Person or a Wall brings together Matt Bell’s acclaimed short fiction—the story collection How They Were Found and the acclaimed novella Cataclysm Baby—along with seven dark and disturbing new stories, to create a work of singular power.
