From one of Ireland's most grindingly authentic and radically original talents, Room Little Darker explores the clandestine aspects of modern life through jagged, visceral tales of wanton sex, broken relationships and futuristic nightmares. An abusive father haunts his daughter and wife from the confines of a nursing home;a couple with an appetite for S&M discover their escapades have led them into something unimaginably bleak;a desperate addict scours the depths of degradation in a nightmare Dublin;an unborn foetus narrates her torturous experience of the Irish legal system;a paedophile acquires a robotic little boy as part of his sex therapy. At once hilarious and profoundly moving, Caldwell's stories probe sexuality and disturbing psychology, and the darkess and light that lives within us all.

A late-night knock on the door of Father Randall leads him to a woman possessed by a malevolent spirit. Though he attempts to help, he realizes he is unprepared to battle the evil being. After fleeing the violent scene, Father Randall meets a seemingly ordinary young man named Daniel Floore, who offers his assistance. When the priest reluctantly agrees, he is shocked to witness Daniel speaking to the demonic creature in an unearthly language. Daniel successfully expels the spirit without calling on God, but disappears before Father Randall can question him, leaving the priest to ponder the young man's existence and his own faith. Shortly thereafter, Daniel becomes acquainted with and transforms the lives of three young women-Kara, a young woman who relishes her youth; Jade, a girl in an abusive relationship who is seeking spiritual guidance; and Marianne, a woman with a violent history who is being hunted by a satanic cult. As the mystery of Daniel Floore's identity is revealed, the fate of Father Randall, Kara, Jade, and Marianne become intertwined. Their connection leads them to a fierce showdown with forces that are evil beyond anything they could ever have imagined.

Arnold Toynbee once wrote of what he called "the overwhelming sense of sin that pervades human history." In this anthology of short fiction, underground cult novelist H. A. Covington explores the darkest realms of the supernatural and of the human heart. Cold Earth is a laconically unamazed tale of murder and ghostly retribution from beyond the grave, told in the powerful yet simple words of a Norse saga. Old Asgrim tells of a brutal soldier of Oliver Cromwell who made a bargain with the Devil. In Mick The Cutler, a young man tries to save the woman he loves from a terrible evil that only he can see. A genteel private school is haunted by a century-old crime in The Wheelbarrow. In Whisper Her Name On The Wind a young woman risks all to save the people of her village from massacre, and learns that no good deed ever goes unpunished. In Bringing Mary Home, a murderer finds not only the law but a vengeance-seeking I.R.A. gunman on his trail. The Stranger is an ancient immortal wizard who battles a cult and the demon they summon for the life and soul of a young girl. In The Madman and Marina, a 1930s secret policeman in the Soviet Union finds forgiveness and redemption for a terrible betrayal. Other Voices, Darker Rooms is a must-read for everyone who reads before bedtime and doesn't care whether or not they sleep when they turn out the light.

This story is the outcome of the author’s enthusiasm for a great English Puritan scholar, author and theologian, an outstanding man of Cromwell’s day, Richard Baxter. Ordained in 1683, Baxter became minister at Kidderminster in 1641, the scene of the action in this book. Mr. Baxter was Chaplain to Cromwell’s army for two years. He also learned what suffering and persecution meant and was imprisoned for eighteen months at one time, without succumbing to panthophobia. Many are the Christians who have been blessed and sustained by his Saints’ Everlasting Rest; also convicted by his Call to the Unconverted. This is reading based squarely on historical personages and facts. Its main theme—Baxter’s falling in love and marriage—is fact. Parts of his famous addresses are quoted. The author’s personal research on the subject, subsequent to the writing of the manuscript and in preparation for some lecture work, confirmed that many of the incidents related, as well as the main theme, have factual basis. The attempted murder in the churchyard, for instance, was paralleled by a similar deed committed by a drunkard who had been subjected to certain church discipline. Those who appreciate “meat” with their “cake” in their fictional repast will find this a book to their liking, and so we shall leave it to speak for itself! You might wish to tell the publishers how you like it; if so, do it by all means.

This book is an all-American, Southern way of living with best friends, teenagers and babies, Although struggles make us stronger, you have to know how to pray your way through life. Without it, I think a lot of us are left empty-hearted and an emotional mess, so to speak. We would all love to live in a "make-believe world" where everything was always perfect and where girls play with their baby dolls and boys with their cars and trucks. But it doesn't work that way in real life. Baby dolls become real babies, and trucks become real objects. They both require a lot more of attention from us. We can't just put them in a closet or toy chest whenever we feel tired of playing. This book is written with the best intentions of coaching girls and boys alike into the research of life and how it's made. It also is written with the utmost respect for parents or single parents and the importance of staying in tune with your teenager, to always keep their confidence level lifted high.

R. K. Narayan (1906—2001) witnessed nearly a century of change in his native India and captured it in fiction of uncommon warmth and vibrancy. The four novels collected here, all written during British rule, bring colonial India into intimate focus through the narrative gifts of this master of literary realism. Swami and Friends introduces us to Narayan’s beloved fictional town of Malgudi, where ten-year-old Swaminathan’s excitement about his country’s initial stirrings for independence competes with his ardor for cricket and all other things British. The Bachelor of Arts is a poignant coming-of-age novel about a young man flush with first love, but whose freedom to pursue it is hindered by the fixed ideas of his traditional Hindu family. In The Dark Room, Narayan’s portrait of aggrieved domesticity, the docile and obedient Savitri, like many Malgudi women, is torn between submitting to her husband’s humiliations and trying to escape them. The title character in The English Teacher, Narayan’s most autobiographical novel, searches for meaning when the death of his young wife deprives him of his greatest source of happiness. These pioneering novels, luminous in their detail and refreshingly free of artifice, are a gift to twentieth-century literature.
