    Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) is known for his tales of the macabre and the supernatural. “The Black Cat” is one of his most celebrated. In it the narrator tells of his growing hatred for his pet cat and how in a drunken rage he maims the animal by cutting out one of it's eyes. Worse is to follow when in an episode of alcohol induced depravity he kills the cat by hanging it from a tree, with the most horrifying of consequences.Public Domain (P)2017 Spiders' House Audio/Roy Macready

    The classic American novel of a philandering, murderous preacher from the national bestselling author of God’s Little Acre.    When preacher Semon Dye moves into the tiny Georgia town of Rocky Comfort, many of its citizens welcome him. After all, the only church in town is being used to store fertilizer. But sermons aren’t the first thing on the mind of the tall, magnetic, and utterly dissolute man. Other callings take priority: women, whiskey, gambling, and hiding from the law. Even as he seduces wives, cheats at cards, and provokes old feuds, Dye manages to cast a dark spell over all the people in Rocky Comfort.   Journeyman is a wicked send-up of religious fervor by an American master of dark political satire. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Erskine Caldwell including rare photos and never-before-seen documents courtesy of the Dartmouth College Library.

During a literary career that spanned more than sixty years, he wrote abundantly in an exceptional variety of genres: lyrics, satires, epics, philosophical poems, epigrams, novels, history, critical essays, political speeches, funeral orations, diaries, and letters public and private, as well as dramas in verse and prose.BOOK 14: THE GRANDEURS OF DESPAIR: As yet, nothing had come. Ten o'clock had sounded from Saint-Merry. Enjolras and Combeferre had gone and seated themselves, carbines in hand, near the outlet of the grand barricade. They no longer addressed each other, they listened, seeking to catch even the faintest and most distant sound of marching.

    The Man Who Knew Too Much and other stories is a book of detective stories by English writer G. K. Chesterton.Horne Fisher is extremely well connected. The plans of prime ministers, foreign ambassadors, and chancellors are matters of table conversation - usually because these people are dining with him. And when a man so well connected is also a brilliant detective, all sinister motives and plots systematically unfold.Whether it is a case of police corruption, or a war with Sweden, Horne Fisher can always solve it. But Horne Fisher is also a philosopher, and not a policeman, and the murderer is seldom punished. G. K. Chesterton, author of the Father Brown stories, here introduces another detective outside the realm of conventional law enforcement.
