The “beautiful” novel that inspired the film starring David Bowie, from a Nebula Award finalist (The New York Times). The Man Who Fell to Earth tells the story of Thomas Jerome Newton, an alien disguised as a human who comes to Earth on a mission to save his people. Devastated by nuclear war, his home planet, Anthea, is no longer habitable. Newton lands in Kentucky and starts patenting Anthean technology—amassing the fortune he needs to build a spaceship that will bring the last three hundred Anthean survivors to Earth. But instead of the help he seeks, he finds only self-destruction, sinking into alcoholism and abandoning his spaceship, in this poignant story about the human condition by the acclaimed author of Mockingbird. “Beautiful science fiction . . . The story of an extraterrestrial visitor from another planet is designed mainly to say something about life on this one.” —The New York Times “An utterly realistic novel about an alien human on Earth . . . Realistic enough to become a metaphor for something inside us all, some existential loneliness.” —Norman Spinrad “Those who know The Man Who Fell to Earth only from the film version are missing something. This is one of the finest science fiction novels of its period.” —J.R. Dunn

The Little Prince is a work in French language, the most famous by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. Published in 1943 in New York simultaneously in English and French, it’s a poetic and philosophical tale in the guise of a children's story. It has simple and uncluttered language, because it is intended to be understood by children, and, in fact, for the narrator, it is the preferred vehicle of a symbolic conception of life. Each chapter talks about a meeting of the little prince who leaves him perplexed about the absurd behavior of grown-ups. Each of these meetings can be read as an allegory. The watercolor paintings are part of the text and participate in this purity of language: simplicity and deepness are the key qualities of the work. You can read an invitation from the author to find the child in yourself, because all grown-ups were first children (but few of them remember). The book is dedicated to Léon Werth, but when he was a little boy.

A nameless terror surges through centuries to engulf the soul of Charles Dexter Ward, a brilliant New England antiquarian. Evil spirits, malefic gods whose memory lives on in whispered legends and fear-stricken superstitions, still lurk in vile catacombs beneath the surface of a blighted land. Ward is driven to unleash these loathsome horrors upon a defenceless world, possessed by the demonic shade of his ancestor Joseph Curwen, a warlock steeped in the blackest arts of magic. Now Ward too must master these obscene rituals, and pay the price in blood. Human blood. The Case Of Charles Dexter Ward remains the only full-length work of fiction by HP Lovecraft, the master of 20th century horror. It has inspired such classic horror films as Roger Corman's The Haunted Palace and Lucio Fulci's The Beyond. This new ebook edition also includes Lovecraft's rare History of the Necronomicon, plus a new introduction by DM Mitchell (editor, The Starry Wisdom).

Yet again J. G. Ballard’s inimitable clairvoyance is on display in this timely, powerful story of a community shattered by a massive act of violence. A massacre rocks a suburban utopia—thirty-two adults murdered, and their children missing—in Running Wild, one of Ballard’s most dazzlingly subversive works of fiction. “To Ballard, lack of choice . . . is a dangerous state of being. In Running Wild, it’s not the children who are doing the running; it is the society that raised them” (San Francisco Chronicle).

Lovecraft's terrifying tales have influenced generations of horror writers. His otherworldly visions of cosmic horrors, alien beings, and a world not quite our own remain immensely powerful and able to terrify even the most resolute readers. This collection spans the breadth of Lovecraft's literary career, from his early forays into the Dreamlands to his mature writings of the Cthulhu mythos. H. P. Lovecraft's petrifying yet fascinating stories took their inspiration from a multitude of literary influences, including the mysterious Arabian Nights, the capricious deities and heroes of Greek mythology, and the lyrical horrors of the gothic tales told to him by his grandfather. His writing gave voice to the belief that there are some things in this world that can never be understood. This collection features several of H. P. Lovecraft's most iconic tales, including: The Call of Cthulhu The Whisperer in Darkness The Thing on the Doorstep The Lurking Fear The Shadow Over Innsmouth The Shunned House From Beyond Pickman's Model The Nameless City The Dreams in the Witch House

A blood-chilling excursion into the twisted mind of a serial killer by the acclaimed author of Last Exit to Brooklyn, Hubert Selby Jr. When the oppressiveness of his memories becomes too hard to bear, a traumatized veteran decides to die. But he grows impatient during the legal waiting period to purchase the gun that will end his sad life. Then he grows angry, resentful of those he blames for his misery and those he feels simply don’t deserve to live. Suddenly a man with no future has a new purpose and a new role as avenging angel. As he spirals deeper into the darkest regions of his twisted imagination, his grisly obsession will give him a reason to live, propelling him relentlessly forward on his great mission to cleanse the dirty city of the unworthy. A brilliant and terrifying nightmare from the author of the critically acclaimed classics Last Exit to Brooklyn and Requiem for a Dream, Hubert Selby Jr.’s Waiting Period views a grim modern world of pain and injustice through the eyes of a maniac whose mind is rapidly deteriorating. A dark and haunting work of raw, savage power, it provides further testament to the greatness of one of America’s most original contemporary literary artists. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Hubert Selby Jr. including rare photos from the author’s estate.

Londres, 1912. Edward Malone, du Daily Gazette, est envoyé par son rédacteur-en-chef interviewer le terrible professeur George Challenger, dont la réputation est entachée par de nombreux scandales à la suite de bagarres avec des journalistes. Malone se fait passer pour un jeune étudiant pour mieux berner le professeur, mais il est rapidement démasqué : les deux hommes en viennent aux mains. Le journaliste refuse pourtant de porter plainte, ce qui amène le professeur à lui révéler sa découverte concernant l'existence de dinosaures encore vivants en Amérique du Sud d'après le carnet d'un certain Maple White, un explorateur ayant vu des choses formidables sur un haut-plateau coupé du monde moderne. Challenger met sur pied une expédition pour rapporter des preuves à la communauté scientifique sceptique. Malone accepte de se joindre à lui pour couvrir l'évènement en correspondant par lettres à la Gazette, mais aussi pour obtenir la main de sa fiancée Gladys en se distinguant par un acte héroïque. Lord John Roxton, chasseur émérite, ainsi que le professeur Summerlee, confrère et rival de Challenger, sont également de la partie. Après une longue traversée en cargo, puis en pirogue, les quatre explorateurs et leurs guides indigènes s'enfoncent au-delà du bassin de l'Amazone.

À la faveur d'expositions réalisées au cours de ces vingt dernières années, Philippe Cognée s'est imposé comme l'un des peintres majeurs du début du XXIe siècle. C'est à la suite de son séjour à la Villa Médicis, en 1991, que l'artiste invente une technique qui devient son processus de travail exclusif sur toile, à partir de photographies et de peinture à l'encaustique. Le rendu objectif de la photographie fait place à un effet de flouté, de liquéfaction, voire de disparition partielle du motif, de sorte qu'une certaine abstraction travaille en profondeur la figure représentée. En distordant les figures, dont les motifs sont pourtant ceux du réel le plus banal, le plus quotidien, Philippe Cognée interroge la matière du pictural, il questionne la représentation. Le spectateur perçoit dans le tableau final comme le symptôme d'une perte : toujours quelque chose vacille, quelque chose est en train de fondre, de disparaître, que l'artiste saisit au moment de sa "tombée", dans le mouvement d'une défaite qu'il parvient à fixer in extremis.
