Summary

The Greatest Classics for Holiday Season is an anthology that encapsulates the essence of diverse literary styles, historical periods, and cultural narratives, creating a mosaic of human experience and imagination. This collection stands out for its breadth, including works that range from the intense introspection of Dostoyevsky, the poignant social critiques of Dickens and Hugo, to the fantastical realms created by Lewis Carroll and H. G. Wells. It showcases the varied ways in which literature can be a mirror to the world, reflecting or refracting the social, psychological, and existential dilemmas of humanity. The inclusion of seminal pieces by Shakespeare, Plato, and Confucius alongside modernist reflections by James Joyce and T. S. Eliot further enriches this canvas, providing a comprehensive overview of the literary achievements across ages. The contributing authors and editors, each a luminary in their own right, bring their unique voices and perspectives, rooted in their distinct historical and cultural contexts. From Goethe's exploration of romanticism to Voltaire's enlightenment critique, and from the transcendental musings of Thoreau to the existential ponderings of Nietzsche, this collection traverses the intellectual landscapes that these writers inhabited. The assembly of such varied authors not only highlights the evolutionary trajectory of literary thought but also the undercurrents of philosophy, politics, and individual consciousness that permeate their works. It's a vibrant testament to the enduring power of storytelling and the unifying thread of human curiosity and creativity throughout different eras. This anthology is an indispensable resource for readers seeking to immerse themselves in the wealth of human thought and expression. The Greatest Classics for Holiday Season offers a unique opportunity to journey through the intellectual and emotional territories charted by some of the most influential figures in literary history. It is a call to those who wish to explore the depths of human experience, to understand the diversity of life through the prism of literature. For educators, students, and lovers of literature, this collection serves as a gateway to the multifaceted nature of classic literary works, inviting an engagement with ideas and narratives that have shaped the human condition across centuries.

    Eight years before the events of Chameleon Moon, Book 1, Regan was just beginning to feel secure in his new life. He doesn't know many things for certain, even his place in Parole as it hangs in a fragile balance far above an ever-burning fire. But he has no doubts about how he feels about Rowan (who appears in the short story The Library Ghost in the collection Life Within Parole, and will again in Book 2: The Lifeline Signal). Trust and intimacy like this is hard to find, and their connection quickly becomes one of the sweetest and most reassuring parts of his strange life. So far, sexuality hasn't been part of it, not for either of them. But like many things in Parole and beyond, attraction/sexuality/sensuality are more complicated than they first appear.  
     
    This is a story about an asexual couple navigating consent, sorting out sometimes-confusing layers of attraction, and discovering new things about themselves and one another - like the fact that their orientations don't entirely match up. But even if their sexualities are farther apart than they realized, it doesn't mean they have to be anything but close.
