Murder on a One-Man Island

Robert Schoolcraft

Wishing to find myself on my own, while at the same time fearful I might not be able to afford living on my own, I was looking for a college roommate when we met last Thursday in her Manhattan Upper West Side apartment. Finding Susann was a blessing. It meant I could move in with her, have my own room and do just that. And when Susann asked me right then to come along on a three-day sailing tr... read more

Candide (Translated and Illustrated): or Optimism

I was amazed and very displeased to find that even the most expensive editions offered less than totally accurate translation of the works; not to mention many translator's mania to go off on their own tangent, adding new words—or phrases—to the author's... read more

The Ring of the Dwarf(Translated and Illustrated)
