Summary

This unique edition of Anton Chekhov's collected works has been formatted to the highest digital standards and adjusted for readability on all devices.
Anton Chekhov (1860-1904) was a Russian physician, dramaturge and author who is often referred to as one of the seminal figures in the birth of early modernism in the theatre. He made no apologies for the difficulties he posed to the readers, insisting that the role of an artist was to ask questions, not to answer them.

    This holiday, spend quality time with family and loved ones—living and dead . . . 
    There's no place like home for the horrordays—unless you'd prefer a romantic midnight walk through a ghost-infested graveyard . . . or a haunted house candlelight dinner with the sexy vampire of your dreams. The (black) magical season is here—and whether it's a solstice séance gone demonically wrong with the incomparable Kim Harrison, a grossly misshapen Christmas with the remarkable Lynsay Sands, a blood-chilling-and-spilling New Year's with the wonderful Marjorie M. Liu, or a super-powered Thanksgiving with the phenomenal Vicki Pettersson, one thing is for certain: in the able hands of these exceptional dark side explorers, the holidays are going to be deliciously hellish!

    The first volume of the classic collection of Middle Eastern stories, including “Tale of the Three Apples” and “Tale of the Trader and the Jinni.”   To be chosen by King Shahriyar as a wife was a death sentence. After a single night of marriage, he executed each of his wives. So when Scheherazade was picked, she knew her time on Earth had reached its end—unless she could hold the king’s interest. To that end, each night she spun a new enchanting, erotic, mesmerizing tale, always keeping the king guessing as to its conclusion—and sparing her life for another thousand and one nights.   The first volume of this collection, translated by the renowned British explorer Sir Richard Burton, begins the stories that Scheherazade told . . .

She tells him he may take one companion with him as a guide. Will chooses young Sparrow, an orphaned stableboy new to the castle and essentially a stranger to him. To help Will on the journey, Old Anna has given him a talisman, a pebble she says will give him 'a kind of sight'.

    BEWITCHED, BODY AND SOUL is an engaging Pride and Prejudice "what-if" story about Darcy and Elizabeth and a different path to happily ever after. 
     
    What Readers Are Saying: 
    "This novel had all the essential elements of the original Pride and Prejudice story, but at each turn it was creatively manipulated on a new path that Dixon creates." 
     
    Determined to right a wrong against her family, Elizabeth ventures to town to reunite her sister with her lover. In so doing, will she end up losing her own heart? 
     
    Determined to discover the reason for Bingley's hasty departure from Netherfield, Elizabeth goes to town in Jane's stead. Her initial scheme having been thwarted and with nowhere else to go, she turns to one who is sure to put her in Bingley's path--Mr. Darcy. 
     
    Darcy realizes it will take more than time and distance to erase the memory of the beguiling country miss. When she arrives unescorted on his doorstep, will he help her? Or will he soon discover he is in grave danger of falling as much in love with her as ever before? 
     
    And what of his best friend's younger sister who has long had Darcy in her sights? Will Darcy pursue the young lady who meets Society's expectations of just what the next mistress of Pemberley ought to be or will he follow his heart? 
     
    Bewitched, Body and Soul: Miss Elizabeth Bennet ● A Regency historical fiction adaptation of Jane Austen's timeless classic Pride and Prejudice.
