Lars Ulwencreutz - Bortom alla speglar och andra sällsamma berättelser

Äntligen en omredigerad nyutgåva!

"Kan Du vara 100% säker på vad Din spegelbild gör när Du inte håller ögonen på den? Går tiden alltid åt samma håll eller ens i samma hastighet? Finns det mer där ute än vad vi är medvetna om? Och finns det verkligen saker som är omöjliga? Vad händer om man råkar mörda sin farfar, innan ens far är född? Kan man ändra det förflutna? Och vilka möjligheter gömmer sig i något så vardagligt som våra speglar? Kan man skicka brev till någon i framtiden, och få svar? Kan tankar ta form? Kittla fantasin med 24 sällsamma och tankeväckande berättelser! Författaren Lars Ulwencreutz debuterar nu som skönlitterär författare med denna novellsamling. Flertalet noveller har tidigare vunnit diverse novelltävlingar och titelnovellen sändes som radioteater under 2007 men nu publiceras de för första gången i tryckt form. Berättelserna är svåra att genre-bestämma, men hamnar inom vad som brukar kallas "fantastisk litteratur", dvs i gränslandet mellan skräck, fantasy och science fiction."

Mary Macleod - Stories from the Faerie Queene

Spenser's The Faerie Queene is one of the masterpieces of English poetry, and certainly part of the literary pedigree that culminated in Tolkien. However, the original text is very difficult to follow for modern readers because of the archaic language and spelling. To the rescue comes Mary Macleod. Her late Victorian retelling in straightforward modern English allows one to plow through Spenser's intricate and allegorical plot. If you are planning to read the Faerie Queene, or want to understand the narrative but don't have the time or patience to tangle with an epic poem in early modern English, you've come to the right place.

Algernon Blackwood - A Prisoner in Fairyland

In the train, even before St. John's was passed, a touch of inevitable reaction had set in, and Rogers asked himself why he was going. For a sentimental journey was hardly in his line, it seemed. But no satisfactory answer was forthcoming -- none, at least, that a Board or a Shareholders' Meeting would have considered satisfactory. The old vicar spoke to him strangely. "We've not forgotten you as you've forgotten us," he said. "And the place, though empty now for years, has not forgotten you either, I'll be bound." Rogers brushed it off. Just silliness -- that was all it was. But after St. John's the conductor shouted, "Take your seats! Take your seats! The Starlight Express is off to Fairyland! Show your tickets! Show your tickets!" And then the forgotten mystery of his childhood came back to him. A PRISONER IN FAIRYLAND is a book that is fantasy and magic. It was adapted to a musical play called "The Starlight Express". If you liked "The Lord of the Rings", You will enjoy this book by Algernon Blackwood.

Edmund Goldsmid - Un-Natural History, or Myths of Ancient Science

A cryptozoological classic from Ulwencreutz Media.
This book was originally privately published in 1886 in Edinburgh. In this publication, Goldsmid brought together rare treatises written in the 1600's which discussed strange and mythical creatures. These fascinating works attempted to separate fact from fiction. While we may not today reach the same conclusions, they provide us with a rare glimpse into the minds of those early scholars who were struggling to understand the world around them. The treatises were written by George Caspard Kirchmayer (On the Basilisk; On the Unicorn; On the Phoenix; On the Behemoth; the Leviathan; On the Dragon; On the Spider), Hermann Grübe (On the Sting of the Tarantula), and Isaac Schoockius (On Chameleons; On Bears licking their Offspring into perfect Shape; On Satyrs, Mermaids, Men with Tails, etc.).
