    A heart-opening tale of transformation.One winter evening a shoemaker finds a mysterious stranger naked and freezing by a shrine in his small village. The shoemaker rescues the man, and takes him home. Though the stranger won’t say where he came from, Simon invites him to work beside him, and stay with his family. As the story unfolds, the stranger transforms, and ultimately reveals an astonishing and deeply moving secret.Late in Tolstoy’s life, after he had written his great masterpieces War and Peace, and Anna Karenina, he underwent a spiritual transformation. Though he was perhaps the most famous figure in Russia at the time, he felt his life was devoid of real meaning. He looked toward religion. But finding a disconnect between the actions of the Church and the teachings of Jesus, he left religion behind, and began to forge a unique spiritual path all his own.It was during that late period that he gave us a series of short stories, spiritual in nature, several of which are true gems. What Men Live By is perhaps the most shining example of these.This gentle tale is narrated by Max Highstein with sensitivity and warmth. Highstein’s original music score also graces the hour long program, artfully supporting Tolstoy’s brilliant storytelling. This is a special recording you’ll want to sit back and enjoy again and again, and share with your friends and family.

    Kalpa Imperial - The Greatest...

    Angélica Gorodischer

    This is the first of Argentinean writer Angélica Gorodischer's nineteen award-winning books to be translated into English. In eleven chapters, Kalpa Imperial's multiple storytellers relate the story of a fabled nameless empire which has risen and fallen innumerable times. Fairy tales, oral histories and political commentaries are all woven tapestry-style into Kalpa Imperial: beggars become emperors, democracies become dictatorships, and history becomes legends and stories.    But this is much more than a simple political allegory or fable. It is also a celebration of the power of storytelling. Gorodischer and translator Ursula K. Le Guin are a well-matched, sly and delightful team of magician-storytellers. Rarely have author and translator been such an effortless pairing. Kalpa Imperial is a powerful introduction to the writing of Angélica Gorodischer, a novel which will enthrall readers already familiar with the worlds of Le Guin.

    Joseph Smith Fletcher (1863-1935) was a British journalist and author. He wrote more than 230 books on a wide variety of subjects, both fiction and nonfiction. He was one of the leading writers of detective fiction in the Victorian golden age of the short story. 
    "The Other Sense" is the story of a young man, Angus MacIntyre, whose ability to see phenomena - ghosts in particular - which other people cannot has caused his guardian to think he is insane and send him to stay with Dr. Schreiber, who is specialised in mental disorders. While there, Angus begins to see the spectre of a pale young man who appears to be seeking something in the doctor's house and garden. Together with the doctor, Angus sets out to solve the mystery.

    Ernest William Hornung(1866-1921) was born in Middlesborough, England and educated at Uppingham School, Rutland. He spent two years in Australia for his health, returning to England in 1886.  In 1893 he married Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's sister Constance and five years later the first of his stories of “Raffles” the gentleman burglar appeared in Cassell's Magazine.  More stories followed and proved extremely popular. The first collection of the exploits of A.J. Raffles and his friend Bunny Manders was published as “The Amateur Cracksman” in 1899.The characters of Raffles and Bunny were possibly inspired by his brother-in-law's creations, Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, although they are on the opposite side of the law.The activities of the gentleman cricketer and his associate are highly questionable but “he never steals from his hosts and he helps his old friends in trouble”.The stories are: “The Ides of March”“A Costume Piece”“Gentleman and Players”“Le Premier Pas”“Wilful Murder”“Nine Points of the Law”“The Return Match”“The Gift of the Emperor”Public Domain (P)2016 Spiders' House Audio/Roy Macready

    Thomas W. Hanshew (1857 – 1914) was an American writer from New York.  His best-loved creation was the private detective Hamilton Cleek, known as "the man of the forty faces" for his incredible skill at disguise. Cleek is based in Clarges Street, London, where he is constantly consulted by Inspector Narkom of Scotland Yard.  In "The Mystery of the Steel Room" Cleek is called upon to solve a very strange case. A famous racehorse is under threat from saboteurs ahead of the Derby. On the two previous nights, the groom guarding her has been attacked. The first was left paralyzed, the second was murdered. But nobody can work out how the saboteurs got into the locked stable, where the horse is guarded in an impenetrable steel cage. Cleek travels down to Suffolk to investigate and discovers that the whole situation is very sinister indeed...

    When this competition was first mooted I went into it in a most light-hearted way, thinking that it would be the easiest thing in the world to pick out the twelve best of the Holmes stories. In practice I found that I had engaged myself in a serious task...In 1927, Strand magazine challenged its readers to guess which of his Sherlock Holmes stories Arthur Conan Doyle himself rated as his very best. (Mr R. T. Newman of Spring Hill, Wellingborough, won £100 for successfully guessing ten of the twelve stories correctly.) Doyle revealed his choice and, in his own inimitable way, explained his reasoning in an article for the magazine. The stories included 'The Speckled Band', 'The Final Problem' and 'The Dancing Men'.Arthur Conan Doyle's favourite twelve Sherlock Holmes stories are now published together for the first time, with his original Strand article to introduce his own selection.
