POEMS BY W.B. YEATS PREFACE During the last year I have spent much time altering The Countess Cathleen and The Land of Hearts Desire that they might be a part of the repertory of the Abbey Theatre.

But in their new shapeand each play has been twice played during the winterthey have given me some pleasure, and ...

Rex Stout If Death Ever Slept Chapter 1 It would not be strictly true to say that Wolfe and I were not speaking that Monday morning in May. We had certainly spoken the night before. Getting home home being the old brownstone on West Thirty-fifth Street owned by Wolfe, and occupied by him and Fritz and Theodore and me around two a.m., I had been surprised to find him still up, at his desk in the office, reading a book. From the look he gave me as I entered, it was plain that something was ...

Philip Hemplow THE INNSMOUTH SYNDROME It was only when the indicator light of the car in front began to blink that Carla realised how dark it was getting. The sky beyond the left side windows was still purple with sunset, but on the right it was already black and studded with stars. The other vehicle began to climb the sliproad, leaving her alone on the narrow two-lane. Carla flipped on the main beams and pressed her foot down, coaxing another ten miles per hour from the rented Honda. It was ...

Philip Hemplow SARCOPHAGUS It was a dismal afternoon. A blustery wind swept around Heathrow, and rain glittered in the runway lights as 747s and A320s lumbered awkwardly into the darkening London sky. Inside the gigantic terminal building, Victoria watched water trace bronchiolar patterns on the darkening glass of the VIP lounge. Swan was on his phone again, reciting acronyms and glib, corporate gerunds to someone in New York. The American was young, 31 or 32, and wore his overpriced suit and ...

The Truth Is a Cave in the Black Mountains By Neil Gaiman You ask me if I can forgive myself I can forgive myself for many things. For where I left him. For what I did. But I will not forgive myself for the year that I hated my daughter, when I believed her to have run away, perhaps to the city. During that year I forbade her name to be mentioned, and if her name entered my prayers when I prayed, it was to ask that she would one day learn the meaning of what she had done, of the dishonour that ...
