Droll stories by Honoré de Balzac( Book )

4 editions published between 1939 and 1965 in English and held by 528 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Balzac's Contes Drolatiques, or Droll Stories, were originally published in three volumes in the 1830s. Set in medieval Europe, these stories were Balzac's attempt to write in the great tradition of Rabelais and Boccaccio, to render the Middle Ages with a touch of raunchy humor, and to provide a delightful portrait of medieval France. Balzac took the old themes that had delighted his ancestors--the tales of faithless wives and confiding husbands, of monks incredibly endowed for amorous athleticism, of lusty wenches and adventurous lads, and of great bouts of eating and drinking."
The circus of Dr. Lao by Charles G Finney( Book )

14 editions published between 1935 and 2011 in English and held by 456 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abalone, Arizona, is a sleepy southwestern town whose chief concerns are boredom and surviving the Great Depression. That is, until the circus of Dr. Lao arrives and immensely and irrevocably changes the lives of everyone drawn to its tents. Expecting a sideshow spectacle, the citizens of Abalone instead confront and learn profound lessons from the mythical made real--a chimera, a Medusa, a talking sphinx, a sea serpent, witches, the Hound of the Hedges, a werewolf, a mermaid, an ancient god, and the elusive, ever-changing Dr. Lao. The circus unfolds, spinning magical, dark strands that ensnare the town's populace: the sea serpent's tale shatters love's illusions; the fortune-teller's shocking pronouncements toll the tedium and secret dread of every person's life; sensual undercurrents pour forth for men and women alike; and the dead walk again. Dazzling and macabre, literary and philosophical, The Circus of Dr. Lao has been acclaimed as a masterpiece of speculative fiction and influenced such writers as Ray Bradbury

Behind Moroccan walls by Henriette Celarié( Book )

7 editions published between 1931 and 1970 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume contains a selection of short stories from two volumes by Mme. Henriette Celarie. They are sketches more than short stories, attempting to show without preamble cross-sections of native Moroccan women's lives, as told to and discovered by the alertly interested wife of a French officer living for years in that country. Each story is rigorously true. Differing perhaps from the usual romantic picture, their flavor of reality can be even more impressive. This is Morocco, static, fluid, potential."--Foreword
