The Unwritten Wing of the Library, for all its infinite magic and mystery, is in some ways a futile project. No story, written or unwritten, is static. Left abandoned too long and given the right stimulation, a book goes wrong in the head. It is a storys natural ambition to wake up and start telling itself to the world. This, of ...

Outrageous, crazy things you might have expected to see done in an institution where the windows are barred and the walls are padded, but never on a street corner in the financial section of a respectable city. Garfield City was extremely respectable, as towns go. It was in southern New York State in a hill region where quarries, mines and farming ...

They stuck out a little, were far apart in his rather narrow face, didnt ever seem to blink, and had a glazed look. Joe Bass dressed in overalls that were ninety percent patches faded to all different shades of blue, had skin like leather from years of exposure to sun and wind, and left an almost unbroken trail ...

It had plenty of grounds around it, shaded by huge old trees. It was beautiful in daylight. But at night, with none too many street lamps around there anyway, it looked pitch-dark, grim, filled with whispering shadows. On this particular night, it was darker than ever around Braintree Museum. The big trees seemed actually to ...

Some others in Ashton City were larger, but this was the most ornate and commanded the biggest rents. The surrounding streets were very dark. The shadows seemed blackest right around the building. And that was as it should be. For that building had a dark reputation. Its owner had an even darker one. At the corner of the ...

Notable, because it had not been present when that sector of the Near Vicinity had last been surveyed by the array of telescopes in orbit around the Deception Well star system. So it was something new, although not unknown. A Dull Intelligence, assigned to analyze astronomical data, had observed such phenomena five times before during its twelve hundred years of ...

Its silhouette lit up against the backdrop of the medieval harbor as it drifted lazily against the natural stone breakwater. The steel ship was covered in rust.
