The Personal Memoirs of General U. S. Grant

by Ulysses S. Grant

The Memoirs of Grant are a well written and pleasant to read. In some places the campaigns were described in more detail than I was interested, but I learned a lot about the civil war and it's time.

The Yellow Wallpaper

by Charlotte Perkins Gilman

This little story is exceptional. It builds a sense of uncanny terror all the way through, giving you a portrait into a womans descent into madness.

About the only complaint I would make is that the Project Gutenberg preamble took up nearly ten of the twenty two pages in the book. That seems like a waste of space in such a short story.

In the Year 2889

by Jules Verne

Also, ironically the storyline involves media (news etc.) in the future being delivered via audio.

Author of the Day

Angela Roquet
Angela Roquet loves everything macabre - with a dash of comedy. She is also fascinated by world religions, the afterlife and mythology. This clearly shows in her work, where mythological characters tend to make an appearance, showing off their more mundane sides. Today, Roquet talks to us about what inspired her book, Graveyard Shift, why she has a female reaper in the leading role and how she used to raise eyebrows in public with the types of books she was reading.
