BURNING DESIRE and other short stories. "A mixture of Saki and Roald Dahl," was the description by one reader of the author's previous collection. "But not for maiden aunts," was another. Now here are 20 more short stories and skits: funny, often scandalous and with a strong flavour of absurdity. So feelings become inflamed in Burning Desire, entrance to the Pearly Gates has unexpected rewards, a Wedding Toast contains startling revelations, and how do you deal with that suspicious package you find in someone else's car? A psychiatrist is mystified by his strange patient, a head-teacher plans a remarkable way of getting rid of awful parents, a catty dispute between neighbours gets increasingly irate, a taxi driver discovers that he has a most unusual passenger, a boy is torn between loving his teacher and loving her parrot, a girl-friend dumps her boy-friend or does she? Many of these and other stories and skits come with the author's speciality: a twist.

A unique collection of over 30 short stories and spoofs. "Doctor George" is no ordinary doctor, Louise aged 8 blackmails her father, Betty is elderly but how respectable? Leo mysteriously disappears from his suburban home, Harold has a disturbing experience in a massage parlour, Mike the beggar is taken for a ride, Cecil the bored vicar rashly gives a sermon on an unmentionable subject, and Sir Charles is much too ambitious as a High Court Judge. These and other stories with a twist are calculated to cause splutters of shocked laughter. Some are suitable only for laid-back readers and a few are quite simply unsuitable. As for spoofs, opera-lovers will (with any luck) choke over the plot of A Night at the Opera, Question Time in the House of Commons will be seen in a new light, and Christmas newsletters from friends just won`t seem the same. It`s a risk. Are you willing to take it?

Ever since I first started working with organ transplant recipients and their support systems, donors, and donor families, I have been driven to educate the public about this miraculous process of giving life from one person to another. Many myths abound in the community about organ donation and transplantation that prevent people from committing to organ donation. For years, I have searched for ways to provide accurate information to the public to help them better understand the process of organ donation and transplantation. Each state has an organ-procurement organization that trains volunteers, many of them organ recipients, people waiting for a transplant, and donor families, to speak to schools and organizations, as well as providing booths at fairs, churches, etc. Even so, thousands of potential recipients die every year because there are not enough donors. When I became aware of Inspiring Voices, I realized that I already had written about several patients who had deeply touched me. It occurred to me that by making their journeys available in book form, many more people could be reached. My Christmas of Miracles and Other Short Stories about Organ Transplant was written to bring their stories to life.

In a Psych Ward Experience and The Mind As an Asylum,two short twisted tales of events intertwined with a contorted view of a reality espoused with the paranormal. A lost soul searching for an escape route in a fortress within a fortress. Where in reality, it didn't really matter where he was or who he was, for he was so heavily sedated to even care. As he found himself an unwillingly guinea pig in a lab of sorts not to life's trials and tribulations, but to events he didn't have any semblance of control, but regardless, he managed the best way he knew how. Where in one tiny corner of his sick mind, not yet corrupted, his plight seemed a lot more easier to handle, as he clung to hope which resided within his own insanity's reason.

As it had been foretold, the armies of the Universe gathered at Trenzalore. Only one thing stood between the planet and destruction – the Doctor. For nine hundred years, he defended the planet, and the tiny town of Christmas, against the forces that would destroy it. He never knew how long he could keep the peace. He never knew what creatures would emerge from the snowy night to threaten him next. He knew only that at the end he would die on Trenzalore. Some of what happened during those terrible years is well documented. But most of it remains shrouded in mystery and darkness. Until now. This is a glimpse of just some of the terrors the people faced, the monstrous threats the Doctor defeated. These are the tales of the monsters who found themselves afraid - and of the one man who was not. (Tales of Trenzalore documents four of the Doctor’s adventures from different periods during the Siege of Trenzalore and the ensuing battle: Let it Snow – by Justin Richards An Apple a Day – by George Mann Strangers in the Outland – by Paul Finch The Dreaming – by Mark Morris)

New Critical Approaches to the Short Stories of Ernest Hemingway

DIVWith an Overview by Paul Smith and a Checklist to Hemingway Criticism, 1975–1990 New Critical Approaches to the Short Stories of Ernest Hemingway is an all-new sequel to Benson’s highly acclaimed 1975 book, which provided the first comprehensive anthology of criticism of Ernest Hemingway’s masterful short stories. Since that time the availability of Hemingway’s papers, coupled with new critical and theoretical approaches, has enlivened and enlarged the field of American literary studies. This companion volume reflects current scholarship and draws together essays that were either published during the past decade or written for this collection. The contributors interpret a variety of individual stories from a number of different critical points of view—from a Lacanian reading of Hemingway’s “After the Storm” to a semiotic analysis of “A Very Short Story” to an historical-biographical analysis of “Old Man at the Bridge.” In identifying the short story as one of Hemingway’s principal thematic and technical tools, this volume reaffirms a focus on the short story as Hemingway’s best work. An overview essay covers Hemingway criticism published since the last volume, and the bibliographical checklist to Hemingway short fiction criticism, which covers 1975 to mid-1989, has doubled in size.
