Summary

Christmas Gold: The Greatest Holiday Novels, Tales & Poems (Illustrated Edition) is an extraordinary collection that dives deep into the festive spirit through the literary lenses of an impressive consortium of authors. Encapsulating a wide range of styles—from the hauntingly beautiful prose of Charles Dickens to the lyrical poetry of William Butler Yeats, this anthology exudes the diversity and depth of Christmas narratives. The collection not only revitalizes traditional holiday themes such as generosity, love, and redemption but also introduces intricate emotional and ethical complexities that resonate across ages and geographies. The authors and poets featured represent stalwarts of 19th and early 20th-century literature, who have profoundly influenced the cultural and literary landscape of their times. This anthology does not merely reflect their individual geniuses but also paints a broader picture of the historical and cultural epochs they belonged to, including the Romantic, Victorian, and Modernist periods. Through their collective voices, the reader gains a nuanced understanding of how the theme of Christmas evolved in literature, mirroring societal changes and personal reflections on human values and community spirit. This edition is warmly recommended for anyone eager to delve into the rich tapestry of Christmas literature that transcends a simple holiday theme to explore broader human conditions and emotions. Unlock a treasure trove of varied perspectives, styles, and narratives that gracefully interweave to form a coherent yet remarkably diverse dialogue. This anthology promises not only a festive reading experience but also an insightful journey into the manifold interpretations of Christmas through the eyes of literary giants.

The stories of the master detective are justifiably well known but he also wrote many short stories which are not so well known but deserve to be. The four stories in this recording were first published singly in magazines, principally “The Strand.” They later appeared in the collection “The Great Keinplatz Experiment and Other Tales of Twilight and the Unseen” in 1919. They are:“The Brown Hand”“Playing with Fire”“How it Happened”“De Profundis”

    “A gem” of a collection of marijuana stories, poems and artwork by Joyce Carol Oates, Lee Child, Linda Yablonsky, Cheryl Lu-Lien Tan, and others (New York Journal of Books).   It’s known by many names: Pot. Grass. Hash. Hemp. Reefer. Ganja. Dope. Weed. Smoke. Spliff. Mary Jane. Tea. Blunt.   And it has played just as many parts in the mind of the public, from Reefer Madness to medical marijuana. Here is a collection of new works as diverse and provocative as the drug itself. From Joyce Carol Oates’s “High” to Dean Haspiel’s “Cannibal Sativa”; from Maggie Estep’s “Zombie Hookers of Hudson” to Philip Spitzer’s “Tips for the Pot-Smoking Traveler,” this collection explores the drug in its many forms and varietals. In prose, pictures, stories, and poems, you can delve into the folklore and the facts, rich cultural history, and dramas personal, political, spiritual, and legal.   Like Dave Chappelle says: “Hey, hey, hey. Smoke weed every day.”
