The Big House is about the late 1970’s and a boy who during this era is filled with much spirit and adventure without the rigors of modern day society-a small town boy. He quickly discovers through a traumatic experience that he can be his best ally or worst enemy and that faith comes from within. He battles internal demons and fear and every time he conquers one another one comes. This kid learns more in one experience than most people learn in a lifetime. And more than that, this boy, Andy Miller realizes his gifts with or without his newfound superhuman powers. Andy Miller is intended to be a role model for kids in today’s modern world as he shares his fears, tears and passion with the audience in order to make the reader reaffirm that we all go through life’s pitfalls and we are never alone in our struggles. We are all connected on some level. THE BIG HOUSE is now available online here at ROBERTVASVARY.COM in a print version, or ebook/pdf version. There are approximately 30 illustrations and the book is intended for the tween market, though test readings are indicating many adults will grow to love Andy Miller, the books protagonist. According to the illustrator, Charlie Read, Creative Director for Firewater Creative, the inspiration and enthusiasm on this project was two fold for him, as he incorporated his photography and family photos to populate the characters and backdrops of each illustration,to create the world of Andy Miller. Robert Vasvary’s The Big House Available now for purchase in Print, PDF & EPUB! Everything is pitch black. The tunnel walls feel soft and slimy. A chill runs down his spine, rising panic stuck in his throat. The walls are breathing. Plunged into a world where the boundaries between fantasy and reality have disappeared, Andy’s thirst for adventure leads him to precious treasure, true love and unspeakable horror. In a bid to escape the terrifying realm of the undead and find the truth, there is only one way out: an epic showdown between good and evil that challenges everything he knows about himself and the world.

'I was conscious of a most horrible smell of mould, and of a cold kind of face pressed against my own...' Considered by many to be the most terrifying writer in English, M. R. James was an eminent scholar who spent his entire adult life in the academic surroundings of Eton and Cambridge. His classic supernatural tales draw on the terrors of the everyday, in which documents and objects unleash terrible forces, often in closed rooms and night-time settings where imagination runs riot. Lonely country houses, remote inns, ancient churches or the manuscript collections of great libraries provide settings for unbearable menace, from creatures seeking retribution and harm. These stories have lost none of their power to unsettle and disturb. This edition presents all of James's published ghost stories, including the unforgettable 'Oh, Whistle and I'll Come to You, My Lad' and 'Casting the Runes', and an appendix of James's writings on the ghost story. Darryl Jones's introduction and notes provide a fascinating insight into James's background and his mastery of the genre he made his own. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

On a distant planet called Nova Prime, the United Ranger Corps defends the galaxy’s remaining humans from an alien race known as the Skrel and their genetically engineered predators, the Ursa. But one young man discovers that, in the fight against annihilation, the Rangers need more help than they realise. Ghost Stories: Peace is the second of six ebook short stories that lead up to the events of After Earth, the epic science fiction adventure film directed by M. Night Shyamalan and starring Jaden Smith and Will Smith. Kevin Diaz’s parents raised him as a pacifist – hence their outrage upon learning their son is joining the Ranger ranks. But Kevin believes that peace is worth fighting for.And fight he must, to withstand a surprise onslaught of Ursa. As Prime Commander Cypher Raige launches a counteroffensive, Kevin arrives in time to watch both comrades and civilians cut down in a nightmare of blood and terror. Suddenly, he understands that being a Ranger, even the best Ranger, isn’t enough against an enemy that can disappear at will, strike with lightning speed, and tear a man in half with one swipe. Kevin took an oath to preserve humanity, but to do so, he’ll have to blaze a path few others have.

Chinese Ghost Stories are a selection of the most entertaining Chinese traditional tales of the strange and fantastic. Hearn had a great affinity for the traditional ghost stories of China, and these stories clearly inspired him as he penned subsequent works. Set in richly atmospheric locales, these tales speak of heroic sacrifice, chilling horror, eerie beauty and otherworldly intervention. This completely reset and pinyin-converted edition of Hearn's classic work contains a new foreword by Victoria Cass, which places the stories, their author, and his love for the strange and mysterious into perspective. If you're seeking insights into the traditional Chinese world of ghosts, goblins and demons—or just want to feel a chill run down your spine on a dark and lonely night—then this book is the perfect companion. Ghost stories include: The Soul of the Great Bell The Story of Ming Yi The Legend of Zhi Nu The Return of Yan Zhenjing The Tradition of the Tea Plant The Tale of the Porcelain God

One might not expect a woman of Edith Wharton's literary stature to be a believer of ghost stories, much less be frightened by them, but as she admits in her postscript to this spine-tingling collection, "...till I was twenty-seven or -eight, I could not sleep in the room with a book containing a ghost story." Once her fear was overcome, however, she took to writing tales of the supernatural for publication in the magazines of the day. These eleven finely wrought pieces showcase her mastery of the traditional New England ghost story and her fascination with spirits, hauntings, and other supernatural phenomena. Called "flawlessly eerie" by Ms. magazine, this collection includes "Pomegranate Seed," "The Eyes," "All Souls'," "The Looking Glass," and "The Triumph of Night."

The Curious Tale of Mandogi's Ghost incorporates Korean folk tales, ghost stories, and myth into a phenomenal depiction of epic tragedy. Written by a zainichi, a permanent resident of Japan who is not of Japanese ancestry, the novel tells the story of Mandogi, a young priest living on the island of Cheju-do. Mandogi becomes unwittingly involved in the Four-Three Incident of 1948, in which the South Korean government brutally suppressed an armed peasant uprising and purged Cheju-do of communist sympathizers. Although Mandogi is sentenced to death for his part in the riot, he survives (in a sense) to take revenge on his enemies and fully commit himself to the resistance. Mandogi's indeterminate, shapeshifting character is emblematic of Japanese colonialism's outsized impact on both ruler and ruled. A central work of postwar Japanese fiction, The Curious Tale of Mandogi's Ghost relates the trauma of a long-forgotten history and its indelible imprint on Japanese and Korean memory.
