Never before published in a single volume, Tolkien’s four novellas (Farmer Giles of Ham, Leaf by Niggle, Smith of Wootton Major, and Roverandom) and one book of poems (The Adventures of Tom Bombadil) are gathered together for the first time. This new, definitive collection of works — which had appeared separately, in various formats, between 1949 and 1998 — comes with an illuminating introduction from esteemed author and Tolkien expert Tom Shippey as well as Tolkein’s most celebrated essay, “On Fairy-stories,” which astutely addresses the relationship between fairy tales and fantasy. The book is the perfect opportunity for fans of Middle-earth to enjoy some of Tolkien’s often overlooked yet most creative storytelling. With dragons and sand sorcerers, sea monsters and hobbits, knights and dwarves, this collection contains all the classic elements for Tolkien buffs of all ages.
This is a collection of tales about nature, fishing, adventure, humor, history, and dumb teenage acts. All is true, at least as I remember things. Dont expect the Great American Novel, or for that matter a true biography. Youll find out a lot about me as it is, as you read. This is necessary to help you understand where these tales are coming from. Im not sure myself, but I had a lot of fun living these tales.

Tales from Ur-Bar
Author: Joshua Palmatier,Patricia Bray
Science fiction and fantasy readers have long shown an affinity for a good "bar story". Now some of today's most inventive scriveners have decided to tell their own tall tales-from an alewife's attempt to transfer the gods' curse to Gilgamesh, to Odin's decision to introduce Vikings to the Ur-Bar, from the Holy Roman Emperor's barroom bargain, to a demon hunter who may just have met his match in the ultimate magic bar, to a bouncer who discovers you should never let anyone in after hours in a world terrorized by zombies.
Regimole Spects has purchased a new bike for his spring holiday, which he always takes the week prior to the annual Spring Fling, with Ms. Jenny and Flash. Due to a spill from the bike, he is forced to spend the night at his friend Todeous Bastian's home, where he learns of some mysterious occurrences that have the residents of Cattail Pond worried. Soon after Regimole arrives at Ms. Jenny's for his holiday, Chief McNaire arrives, and Regimole shares the concerns of their neighbors over the incidents at the pond. They decide to have Detective Daniel Squirrey investigate the incidents in the week to follow. The week-long investigation brings forth very little new evidence in solving the mystery. Sunday arrives, and Detective Squirrey considers skipping the Spring Fling, when the island is hit by an unexpected storm causing the event to be postponed. While Daniel, Chief McNaire, and other villagers spread the word of the postponed event, a heart-wrenching howl echoes across the island from Cattail Pond and is soon followed by the emergency alarm ringing at Ms. Jenny's. With the immediate response of their neighbors, Flash informs everyone that Regimole has disappeared.
What if Snow White were the real villain and the "wicked queen" just a sadly maligned innocent? What if awakening Sleeping Beauty would be the mistake of a lifetime -- of several lifetimes? What if the famous folk tales were retold with an eye to more horrific possibilities? Only Tanith Lee -- "Goddess-Empress of the Hot Read" (Village Voice) could retell the world-famous tales of the Brothers Grimm (and others) as they might have been told by the Sisters Grimmer! This special edition, put together for the 30th anniversary of the original edition, adds a new Grimmer fairy tale written especially for this volume!
This collection of short stories and flash fiction are written as first-hand accounts of odd, disturbing and frightening situations. Each story is a glimpse into the darker side of human thought and experience. Proceed with caution.
A war injury ends Sutton Albright's career as a concert pianist. His nights are spent in a debauched romp through gay Manhattan. After he meets Jack, their attraction cannot be denied. Can music heal them both, or will sudden prosperity jeopardize their chance at love?
