Free Joe and Other Georgian Sketches

by Joel Chandler Harris

The charm of Joel Chandler Harris' Georgian sketches has long been recognized as of a peculiarly rare kind. In his hands the art of telling a short story has been developed well-nigh to perfection. Each of his tales has certain qualities that, taken together, stamp it as the work of a master--a just and artistic balancing of parts, a felicitous grouping of incidents, strong character studies, bold in outline and finished with a wealth of suggestive detail; a tinge of humor which ever and anon passes the line and acquires the deep hue of pathos; and, finally, a touch of graceful fancy and tender sentiment. The skill and exquisite literary taste with which Mr Harris weaves these delicate threads into the texture of his tales are known of all men; and in none of his work is he seen to better advantage than in this collection of his more recent stories.

Author of the Day

Graceley Knox & D.D. Miers
USA Today bestselling authors, Graceley Knox and D.D. Miers may be long-lost sisters, but their moms continue to deny it. They are most definitely the co-writers of the Kresova Vampire Harem series, as well as a multitude of other upcoming projects they can't wait to share with readers. Together they tend to share the same brain, finish each other's thoughts, laugh way too hard at inappropriate comments, drink enough coffee to qualify for an intervention, and talk about their fur babies. As our Authors ot the Day, they talk about their latest book, Girl Bitten, reveal what it takes to co-write books, explain what they do with new ideas and much more.
