A Bottle in the Smoke: A Tale of Anglo-Indian Life


$2.99


The early dawn had given place to the golden sunlight of the Indian morning, but there was still ample shade within certain nooks in the compound of a pleasant-looking two-storied house in one of the leafy roads of Madras. Under an old banyan tree, with its tent-like stems turned downwards and its dense canopy of green overhead, stood a dainty breakfast table. Early tea was over. One bamboo chair had already been vacated by its occupant; in the other, sat a young English lady. Only two months previously Hester Rayner had left home a bride. “She is happy, I think,” was always the remark, accompanied by a sigh, made by her anxious mother, as she passed the closely written pages of the latest letter across the rectory breakfast table to her husband. The young wife’s letters gave no untrue expression of her state of feeling, yet there were times when the dream-like sensation which pervaded her outlook on the new surroundings disturbed her. The spell of the East was strong; the tropical life, the vivid colouring, the brown-skinned multitudes, the waving palms, all seemed to belong to a bright pageant in which she was only a passing spectator. And now, with the simple sense of duty which had marked the only daughter of the Pinkthorpe Rectory, she was asking herself whether it was right to yield so entirely to the wooing of the magic present. Even her weekly journal from home seemed to deepen the glamour; all in that dear distant home was transfigured by its glow; never had the tender affection of father and mother felt so precious, and who would have believed that the couple of schoolboy brothers would prove so much more demonstrative in their first letters than in the days when she had painted their wickets, made sails for their boats, and was their willing helper in all school preparations? And again the unexpected was on its way. It came in the form of a letter which a white-robed peon now handed to her. It was the first she had received from her brother Charlie, now a

A Perfect Ass: Muriel & Sarah's Summer of Wonder in an Age of Bummer


A Perfect Ass: Muriel & Sarah’s Summer of Wonder in an Age of Bummer


$3.99


You may never live a summer of love and affection like that of Muriel and Sarah, long ago in the 1950s, but you are secretly curious. Reading Sarah’s memoir, you will understand, deep in your heart, how they found refuge together, and how love discovered them, in a cozy little nook of light and warmth in a cold, gray U.S. city. Such a total, physical, heart and soul crush may happen once in a woman’s life, never to be repeated. Those who have been so lucky (and daring) will carry their secret forever – hidden silently & deeply in their heart, borne with a mysterious smile and slight goddess glow. Muriel is a widowed lawyer and mother, 37, still beautiful as she tackles a very gray and unforgiving man’s world and a stodgy older man friend. Sarah is a gorgeous 23 year old secretary with a perfect figure and a hot but faithless boyfriend. Each is disappointed in an unsatisfactory relationship with a man, which only adds to their daily struggle for survival-until something comes over Muriel one hot summer day, and she seduces Sarah at Ferguson’s office as if she were a young stud hitting on a hot chick. Hungry for sandwiches and real affection, Sarah’s heart explodes toward the other woman and the rest makes for an unforgettable summer of passion and fulfillment. All too soon, they go their separate ways. marry, have children, live in leafy suburbs far apart. but neither will ever forget the other. Their brief summer leaves its mark, like a long, warm afternoon – an endless sunset glowing around paired swimmers alone on a fathomless sea. These two unique, strong, unforgettable women will forever treasure its light, and you will be glad Sarah wrote this erotic, loving memoir many years later. She captures a perfect time, moment by sensuous and delicious moment, explicit and breathless, like a favorite love song on a radio playing over and over again to its fiery but cool sunset fade.

How John Norton the Trapper Kept His Christmas


How John Norton the Trapper Kept His Christmas


$3.99


I. A cabin. A cabin in the woods. In the cabin a great fireplace piled high with logs, fiercely ablaze. On either side of the broad hearth-stone a hound sat on his haunches, looking gravely, as only a hound in a meditative mood can, into the glowing fire. In the centre of the cabin, whose every nook and corner was bright with the ruddy firelight, stood a wooden table, strongly built and solid. At the table sat John Norton, poring over a book-a book large of size, with wooden covers bound in leather, brown with age, and smooth as with the handling of many generations. The whitened head of the old man was bowed over the broad page, on which one hand rested, with the forefinger marking the sentence. A cabin in the woods filled with firelight, a table, a book, an old man studying the book. This was the scene on Christmas Eve. Outside, the earth was white with snow, and in the blue sky above the snow was the white moon. “It says here,” said the Trapper, speaking to himself, “it says here, ‘Give to him that lacketh, and from him that hath not, withhold not thine hand.’ It be a good sayin’ fur sartin; and the world would be a good deal better off, as I conceit, ef the folks follered the sayin’ a leetle more closely.” And here the old man paused a moment, and, with his hand still resting on the page, and his forefinger still pointing at the sentence, seemed pondering what he had been reading. At last he broke the silence again, saying-”Yis, the world would be a good deal better off, ef the folks in it follered the sayin’;” and then he added, “There’s another spot in I’d orter look at to-night; it’s a good ways furder on, but I guess I can find it. Henry says that the furder on you git in the book, the better it grows, and I conceit the boy may be right; for there be a good deal of murderin’ and fightin’ in the fore part of the book, that don’t make pleasant readin’, and what the Lord wanted to put it in fur is a good deal more than a man without book-larnin’ can understan

In their glow, she sees several lovely visions including a Christmas tree and a holiday feast. The girl looks skyward, sees a shooting star, and remembers her deceased grandmother saying that such a falling star means someone died and is going into Heaven. As she lights her next match, she sees a vision of her grandmother, the only person to have treated her with love and kindness. She strikes one match after another to keep the vision of her grandmother nearby for as long as she can. The child dies and her grandmother carries her soul to Heaven.
