    The Scottish literary master’s final full-length realistic novel—his prodigal son tour de force.  MacDonald’s 1897 novel, Salted with Fire, is replete with dense Scottish dialect and spiritual themes. The repentance (through fire) of young minister James Blatherwick, who recognizes the sham of his pretended spirituality, is reminiscent of Thomas Wingfold’s spiritual journey. It also embodies in fictional form one of MacDonald’s signature themes from his first volume of Unspoken Sermons, “The Consuming Fire.” Along with these themes, the return of one of MacDonald’s favorite character “types,” the humble Scottish peasant bard, in the person of cobbler John MacLear, establishes Salted with Fire as a work of lasting importance in the MacDonald corpus. It arguably offers a fitting climax to MacDonald’s life message. This new edition by MacDonald biographer Michael Phillips streamlines the occasionally ponderous Victorian narrative style and updates the thick Doric dialect into readable English.

    David Innes is a young man who has just inherited a large mining company. An eccentric inventor, Abner Perry, convinces Innes to underwrite a project to build an "iron mole," claiming it will make them both wealthy. The mechanical beast works well—actually too well. On the maiden voyage, instead of digging for a few minutes and returning, they plunge straight through the earth's crust into the "inner world" of Pellucidar. This world resembles Earth but is a horizonless, primeval tropical landscape where the sun neither sets nor rises, and it is populated by "Sagoth" gorilla men, wild human slaves, and the ruling hypnotic, reptilian "Mahors." 
    Upon arriving at this strange world, the men are immediately captured and enslaved. But soon Perry learns to read the language of the Mahors and discovers a secret way to turn the tables! True to Burroughs form, this nonstop fantasy thriller weaves together savage islanders, pterodactyls, telepathy, and, of course, romance.

    This revealing romp through proper society follows three different women who dare to defy Victorian standards.Can You Forgive Her? comically intertwines the stories of three very independent-minded women who each desires to decide her own fate in a world where love comes second to obedience and familial expectations set them apart from their peers.   First and foremost is the spirited Alice Vavasor, whose indecision and repeated rejections of two different swains have made her a woman of both substance and suspicion. Equally determined to have her way is the recently widowed Mrs. Greenow, who was married to a wealthy man at a young age, and who can now decide whom she will take as a husband. And finally, there is the tale of the brazen, free-thinking Glencora M’Cluskie, including her rocky marriage to the loving—but hardheaded—Plantagenet Palliser, whose powerful family appears throughout Anthony Trollope’s works.   In this classic novel of social satire, Trollope’s deft humor and biting examination of the lives and legacies of high society remain as entertaining and inviting as ever.   Can You Forgive Her? is the 1st book in the Palliser Novels, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.  This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.

    Anthony Hope's swashbuckling classic tale of adventure and romance: Ruritania, a beautiful kingdom in the mountains between Germany and Austria, is in the midst of a power struggle. On one side is the alcoholic lay-about crown prince, Rudolf—popular with the upper class and army—and on the other is his half-brother, Michael, who has the love of the common people. The struggle reaches a new fervor at Rudolf's coronation, when Michael kidnaps his brother and takes him to the Castle of Zenda. Now the only thing in the way of Black Michael's plan is a confused distant cousin in England.  
    But a man named Rudolf Rassendyll could ruin Michael's plan. Rassendyll bears a striking resemblance to the kidnapped king Rudolf. After the king's disappearance, Rassendyll poses as the sovereign in order to maintain order—and finds that it is up to him to find the rightful ruler.
