The Yellow Wallpaper
‘It is stripped off – the paper – in great patches . . . The colour is repellent . . . In the places where it isn’t faded and where the sun is just so – I can see a strange, provoking, formless sort of figure, that seems to skulk about . . .’
Based on the author’s own experiences, ‘The Yellow Wallpaper’ is the chilling tale of a woman driven to the brink of insanity by the ‘rest cure’ prescribed after the birth of her child. Isolated in a crumbling colonial mansion, in a room with bars on the windows, the tortuous pattern of the yellow wallpaper winds its way into the recesses of her mind.
Charlotte Perkins Gilman was America’s leading feminist intellectual of the early twentieth century. In addition to her masterpiece ‘The Yellow Wallpaper’, this new edition includes a selection of her best short fiction and extracts from her autobiography$0.00

The Machine Stops
The Machine Stops is a short science fiction story. It describes a world in which almost all humans have lost the ability to live on the surface of the Earth. Each individual lives in isolation in a ‘cell’, with all bodily and spiritual needs met by the omnipotent, global Machine. Most humans welcome this development, as they are skeptical and fearful of first-hand experience.
People forget that humans created the Machine, and treat it as a mystical entity whose needs supersede their own. Those who do not accept the deity of the Machine are viewed as ‘unmechanical’ and are threatened with “Homelessness”. Eventually, the Machine apocalyptically collapses, and the civilization of the Machine comes to an end$0.00

The Book of David — I: Goliath
History is written by the winners, we are told – but what if it weren’t? What if those who lost were to have their say? Terence Morgan (author of ‘The Master of Bruges’, ‘The Shadow Prince’ and ‘Villon’) has applied this question to the founding fathers of the nation of Israel. In this new trilogy (also available as separate volumes), Morgan tells the story of the beginnings of the nation of Israel through the eyes of three men who were in their different ways the ‘losers’ of history – Goliath, whom David slew, Saul, his predecessor as king and Joab, his army general. How would these men have seen the rise of David? ‘The Book of David’ is the bible’s missing volume, a story of love and hate, political chicanery and religious rivalry, the beginnings of nationhood and the men and women whose lives were caught up in its strife.
Terence Morgan is renowned for his ‘retakes’ of history, looking at events from a different perspective. ‘The Book of David’ is a worthy addition to the canon.$3.00
