A compendium of really weird tales written in 1885 by E.T.A. Hoffmann, who was a Prussian Romantic author of fantasy and horror, a jurist, composer, music critic, draftsman and caricaturist. The title of this volume 'Weird Tales' inspired a horror magazine to adopt the same title for it.
In a society of anthropomorphised canines, Gissing, a debonair young dog about town, adopts some orphaned puppies and begins to yearn for a more meaningful existence than his pleasant life in suburban Canine Estates. Simultaneously a fairy tale, a story about dogs, an allegory, and a satire, this fantastic and thought-provoking story full of beauty and meaning is worthy of a place on any bookshelf and is highly recommended for fans and collectors of Morley?s work. Christopher Morley (1890 - 1957) was an American novelist, poet, and journalist. Many antiquarian books such as this are increasingly hard to come by and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
This early work by William Morris was originally published in 1899 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography. William Morris was born in London, England in 1834. Arguably best known as a textile designer, he founded a design partnership which deeply influenced the decoration of churches and homes during the early 20th century. However, he is also considered an important Romantic writer and pioneer of the modern fantasy genre, being a direct influence on authors such as J. R. R. Tolkien. As well as fiction, Morris penned poetry and essays. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
THAT going to the seaside was the very beginning of everything-only it seemed as though it were going to be a beginning without an end, like the roads on the Sussex downs which look like roads and then look like paths, and then turn into sheep tracks, and then are just grass and furze bushes and tottergrass and harebells and rabbits and chalk. The children had been counting the days to The Day. Bernard indeed had made a calendar on a piece of cardboard that had once been the bottom of the box in which his new white sandshoes came home. He marked the divisions of the weeks quite neatly in red ink, and the days were numbered in blue ink, and every day he crossed off one of those numbers with a piece of green chalk he happened to have left out of a penny box. Mavis had washed and ironed all the dolls' clothes at least a fortnight before The Day. This was thoughtful and farsighted of her, of course, but it was a little trying to Kathleen, who was much younger and who would have preferred to go on playing with her dolls in their dirtier and more familiar state.
