From the foggy streets of Victorian London to the eerie perfection of 1950s suburbia, the everyday is invaded by the evil otherworldly in this unforgettable collection of new ghost stories from the author of The Woman in Black. In the title story, on a murky evening in a warmly lit club off St James, a bishop listens closely as a paranormal detective recounts his most memorable case, one whose horrifying denouement took place in that very building. In 'The Front Room', a devoutly Christian mother tries to protect her children from the evil influence of their grandmother, both when she is alive and when she is dead. A lonely boy finds a friend in 'Boy Number 21', but years later he is forced to question the nature of that friendship, and to ask whether ghosts can perish in fires. This is Susan Hill at her best, telling characteristically flesh-creeping and startling tales of thwarted ambition, terrifying revenge and supernatural stirrings that will leave readers wide-awake long into the night.

Save money, time, and stress by never checking a bag again Have you ever struggled with packing for a trip? You can't decide what you'll need, so you pack for every scenario and take far too much. You struggle to fit everything in your bag, you get stressed lugging it around, and you pay a fortune in airline luggage fees. The Carry-On Traveller will teach you not only how to lighten your load, but how to pack everything you need into a single carry-on-size bag. You can apply these strategies to any trip, whether you are travelling for a week or a year, to hot or cold climates, alone or with kids. By travelling carry-on only, you'll save time at airports, avoid wasting money on checked luggage fees (which are increasingly common), and reduce the stress of hauling bulky bags. It's not an all or nothing approach. Packing light is a learning process, and you might want to take it gradually. Even if you don't travel carry-on only on your next trip, this book will help you pack lighter. "The book gave me some great ideas on where I can pack less and how to pack better. My backpack right now is about a third less full than usual because I got rid of a lot of the 'what if' items I normally bring." Dani Heinrich, GlobeTrotterGirls.com.

"I was having trouble fitting everything in my backpack and having a minor panic attack on how to do it up until I read this book. I gave it another go and I managed to pack it with room to spare!" Caitlin Reilly Why I wrote this book The advice in this book is based on my six years of experience travelling full-time to over 30 countries with just a carry-on backpack. I wrote this book because I believe packing light is the secret to stress-free travel. I've saved myself money, time, stress, and backache. Most importantly, I've gained freedom-I can pack all my belongings in ten minutes and head off on the next adventure.

Plautus Stichus Three Bob Day Truculentus The Tale Of A Travelling Bag Fragments

PLAUTUS (Titus Maccius), born about 245 B.C. at Sarsinia in Umbria, came to Rome, engaged in work connected with the stage, lost his money in commerce, became for a time a baker's help, and for the rest of his life composed comedies. After his death in 184 B.C. 130 plays were ascribed to him, but at last only 21 were accepted as genuine; and in fact 21 (one being incomplete have survived. The basis of all is a free translation from comedies by such writers as Menander, Diphilus, and Philemon. So we have Greek manners of Athens c. 225-185 B.C. with Greek places, people, and customs, and a distinctive plot, for popular amusement in a Latin city whose own 'culture' was not yet developed and whose manners were more severe. But to make his plays 'live' for his audience, Plautus included many Roman details, especially concerning slavery, military affairs, and law, with some invention of his own, especially in management of metres. The resulting mixture is lively, genial and humorous, with good dialogue and vivid style. There are plays of intrigue alone (Bacchides, Mostellaria, Pseudolus); of intrigue with a recognition-theme (Captivi, Poenulus, Curculio); plays which develop character (Auluaria, Miles Gloriosus); others which turn on mistaken identity (accidental as in the Menaechmi imitated by Shakespeare in his 'Comedy of Errors'; caused on purpose as in Amphitruo); plays of domestic life (Mercator, Casina, both unpleasant; Trinummus, Stichus, both pleasant). We are told that Plautus' plays were under St. Jerome's pillow as he slept: They were certainly favourites of Luther.

Daisetz Teitaro Suzuki's The Training of the Zen Buddhist Monk invites you to step inside the mysterious world of the Zendo, where monks live their lives in simplicity. This is perhaps the best introduction to Zen and the life of the Zen monk. By means of a direct and succinct description of the training that a Zen Buddhist monk undergoes, Dr. Suzuki has given us the most precise picture possible of Zen in life. The forty-three illustrations give a unique value to the book. The artist, Zenchu Sato has depicted here the record of his own experiences in going through all the disciplinary measures pertaining to the life of Zen. As author, Dr. Suzuki said, "Zen ought to be studied not only in its theoretical aspects, as a unique product of the Oriental mind, but in its practical aspect as it is to be seen in the Zendo life. This is the chief motive for my writing this book."

In the 1930s, Finnish poet Bo Carpelan found mention of his great-uncle Axel in a biography of the composer Jean Sibelius. This friendship is the genesis of Carpelan's fictional diary of Axel's dual obsession with music and with a man who, unlike him, had enough confidence in his creativity to compose his own. In Carpelan's novel, set during Finland's struggle to escape Russian domination, young Axel's life is full of melancholic introspection communicated only to his diary. The short entries describe his adolescent antagonism toward healthier and more joyous peers, and his embarrassment at his futile attempts to coax beauty from his violin. His unrelenting disappointment and self-effacement give way after meeting his hero Sibelius, as Axel's search for meaning and an aesthetic ideal becomes forever linked to the unfolding of the composer's musical genius.
