Summary

Horror is a genre of speculative fiction which is intended to frighten, scare, disgust, or startle its readers by inducing feelings of horror and terror. It shocks, or even frightens the reader, or perhaps induces a feeling of repulsion or loathing. It creates an eerie and frightening atmosphere. Horror is frequently supernatural, though it might also be non-supernatural. Often the central menace of a work of horror fiction can be interpreted as a metaphor for the larger fears of a society.

    War in Heaven is the first novel Charles Williams published, and also his most comic. The Holy Graal has been stolen and the magician who stole it is up to no good—wanting to use it to amply his own powers for his nefarious ends. An Anglican archdeacon steals it back, and together with a Catholic duke, they seek to keep it safe. When the magician blackmails the archdeacon all seems lost—and that's when Prester John shows up... War in Heaven is everything you've come to expect from a Williams novel—suspense, supernatural danger, and a Mysticism so real and good and terrible that nothing can stand against it.

    This newly discovered story by literary legend Sylvia Plath stands on its own and is remarkable for its symbolic, allegorical approach to a young woman’s rebellion against convention and forceful taking control of her own life. 
    Written while Sylvia Plath was a student at Smith College in 1952, Mary Ventura and The Ninth Kingdom tells the story of a young woman’s fateful train journey. 
    Lips the color of blood, the sun an unprecedented orange, train wheels that sound like “guilt, and guilt, and guilt”: these are just some of the things Mary Ventura begins to notice on her journey to the ninth kingdom. 
    “But what is the ninth kingdom?” she asks a kind-seeming lady in her carriage. “It is the kingdom of the frozen will,” comes the reply. “There is no going back.” 
    Sylvia Plath’s strange, dark tale of female agency and independence, written not long after she herself left home, grapples with mortality in motion.
