The Gay Triangle - ebook/epub
|William Le Queux|
|From a derelict shed adjoining a lonely road which stretched for miles across the Norfolk fens, a strange shape slid silently into the night mist. It was a motor-car of an unfamiliar design. The body, of gleaming aluminium, was of unusual width, and was lifted high above the delicate chassis and spidery bicycle wheels that seemed almost too fragile to bear the weight of an engine.|

To be healthy and happy, it's essential to be thin - or is it? For too many women, the 'right' shape remains an elusive goal, and confusion and guilt reign in the world of weight loss. Yet, being overweight is neither a disease nor a sin. Human beings are designed to come in many different shapes and sizes, and, when you read the small print, dieting is potentially more threatening to health than being over the recommended body mass index...
|Anna Katharine Green|

In the fashion of the high prairie, romance and trust are acquired, lost, destroyed and acquired again... Sketchy mortgages and vague speculations will make us guess. The main character goes on a strange sea adventure to stop thinking about unhappy love. This is a story about a love triangle with unusual plot twists.
|Robert E. Howard|
Over shadowy spires and gleaming towers lay the ghostly darkness and silence that runs before dawn. Into a dim alley, one of a veritable labyrinth of mysterious winding ways, four masked figures came hurriedly from a door which a dusky hand furtively opened. They spoke not but went swiftly into the gloom, cloaks wrapped closely about them; as silently as the ghosts of murdered men they disappeared in the darkness...
Love of life is not only the name of the story, but also the main quality of one of the characters. Such an acute, almost tangible desire took possession of man that he, exhausted by hunger, cold, chills, illness, dislocation, hallucinations and other troubles that can await a lonely generational man in the forest. He survived the battle with a bear, with a wolf, with his mind and body, persuading him to rise again...
It was almost night when this melancholy little party appeared at the main station. Dick, with great foresight, sent the food cart several miles to meet them, so my mother was relieved of pain when her husbands body was brought to his horse. Rude and rude, Dick was a thoughtful guy, and I firmly believe that he would go through fire and water to serve my mother, whom he greatly admired.
|Robert E. Howard|
Some such thoughts flitted vaguely through my mind that night as I groped along the narrow trail that wound through the deep pinelands. Such thoughts are likely to keep company with any man who dares invade, in the night, that lonely stretch of densely timbered river-country which the black people call Egypt, for some obscurely racial reason.
|Joseph Smith Fletcher|
Another fast-paced murder mystery by J.S. Fletcher told in the first person. He wrote about 200 books on a wide variety of subjects, both fiction and non-fiction. He was one of the leading writers of detective fiction in the „Golden Age”. It was first published in 1920, and has just the right stock of truly good characters, balanced by a couple of nasties. A young apprentice solicitor in a rural English town bordering Scotland...

The moonlight shimmered hazily, making silvery mists of illusion among the shadowy trees. A faint breeze whispered down the valley, bearing a shadow that was not of the moon-mist. A faint scent of smoke was apparent. The man whose long, swinging strides, unhurried yet unswerving, had carried him for many a mile since sunrise, stopped suddenly. A movement in the trees had caught his attention, and he moved silently toward the shadows...
|Arthur J. Rees|
Another classic book of murder mystery and mayhem skillfully written with an in depth journey to find out who really did the evil deed and why. „The Shrieking Pit” is one of Arthur Rees’s earlier works.

|E. Phillips Oppenheim|
Upward in long sinuous bends the road wound its way into the heart of the hills. The man, steadily climbing to the summit, changed hands upon the bicycle he was pushing, and wiped the sweat from his grimy forehead. It had been a gray morning when he had left, with no promise of this burst of streaming sunshine. Yet the steep hill troubled him but little--he stepped blithely forward with little sign of fatigue...
|William Le Queux|
To allow so young and delicate a girl to tramp England aimlessly in search of some vague and secret information which seemed to be her erratic father’s object, was, we decided, an utter impossibility; therefore, following that night of our first meeting at Helpstone, Burton and his daughter remained our guests for a week, and, after many consultations and some little economies, we were at last successful in placing Mabel at school...
The Fort Edward Hotel, better known as the Maroney’s Hotel, looked in the middle of the streets like a packing box among soap dishes. Other habitats stretched out on both sides of the wrong double row. At eleven in the morning there were few humans in sight, because the black? ies were in murderous fettle, and anyway, the principal industry of the place was waiting for the railway. Strange things happen on these streets...
'A Country Doctor' is a short story written in 1917 by Franz Kafka.
|Herbert George Wells|
This novel is a great document illustrating the anticipation of comings of the 20th century. This early H.G. Wells’ tale is about a 20 year old man who has a job as a Drapers Assistant, a job which he is probably too old for. Loaded with poor self esteem and a second class status, poor Mr. Hoopdriver takes a ten day holiday. On this holiday he falls for a young socialite named Jessie who is rebelling against her stepmother and society...

|Robert E. Howard|
The horror first took concrete form amid that most unconcrete of all things–a hashish dream. I was off on a timeless, spaceless journey through the strange lands that belong to this state of being, a million miles away from earth and all things earthly; yet I became cognizant that something was reaching across the unknown voids–something that tore ruthlessly at the separating curtains of my illusions and intruded itself into my visions...
|Edward Lytton Wheeler|
„Deadwood Dick, The Prince of the Road or The Black Rider of the Black Hills” is a fun shoot-’em-up-cowboy book, rather than a serious western but the entertainment value is just as high. They called him Deadwood Dick, the Prince of The Road, the Black Rider of the Black Hills of Dakota. He was as famous for a time as Wild Bill Hickok or Buffalo Bill. It is the story of gold-seekers, settlers and criminals who all come together in a small...

”Shirley”, the second published novel by Charlotte Bronte, was released in 1849 amongst high anticipations by readers and critics after super success of „Jane Eyre”. Probably, it is the most „suspenseful” novel by Charlotte Bronte. The novel delicately combines classic Gothic motives – motives, relatively speaking, are classically the „detective”. However, under the brilliant pen of Bronte...

One of the few full-length novels by Sapper, in which the Bulldog Drummond does not appear. He does, however, show the second most important character, Ronald Standish. The two most intelligent characters were villains, but their schemes and plots remained mysterious for most of the novel. We are also told that all victims die from the same poison from a small scratch on the body, although the exact poison is nobody known...
|Michel de Montaigne|
Montaignes The Essays is an unusual book, largely due to the authors attitude to it. This is an exclusively everyday book, suitable for everyday use, in which the author does not discuss how the world works and where everything goes, but discusses the essential: how to raise children, how to build a married life, how to spend leisure time, etc. At the same time, Montaigne does not have a very high opinion of himself...
