The Master at his scarifying best! From heart-pounding terror to the eeriest of whimsy-tales from the outer limits of one of the greatest imaginations of our time! In "The Mist," a supermarket becomes the last bastion of humanity as a peril beyond dimension invades the earth... Touch "The Man Who Would Not Shake Hands," and say your prayers... There are some things in attics which are better left alone, things like "The Monkey"... The most sublime woman driver on earth offers a man "Mrs. Todd's Shortcut" to paradise... A boy's sanity is pushed to the edge when he's left alone with the odious corpse of "Gramma"... If you were stunned by Gremlins , the Fornits of "The Ballad of the Flexible Bullet" will knock your socks off... Trucks that punish and beautiful teen demons who seduce a young man to massacre; curses whose malevolence grows through the years; obscene presences and angels of grace-here, indeed, is a night-blooming bouquet of chills and thrills.Show more

Set in the 1870s, the same period as Wharton's The Age of Innocence, The Buccaneers is about five wealthy American girls denied entry into New York Society because their parents' money is too new. At the suggestion of their clever governess, the girls sail to London, where they marry lords, earls, and dukes who find their beauty charming-and their wealth extremely useful.After Wharton's death in 1937, The Christian Science Monitor said, 'If it could have been completed, The Buccaneers would doubtless stand among the richest and most sophisticated of Wharton's novels.' Now, with wit and imagination, Marion Mainwaring has finished the story, taking her cue from Wharton's own synopsis. It is a novel any Wharton fan will celebrate and any romantic reader will love. This is the richly engaging story of Nan St. George and guy Thwarte, an American heiress and an English aristocrat, whose love breaks the rules of both their societies.Show more
