The heir and the spare by Emily Albright( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Going all the way to England for college--to Oxford, no less--for college would be exciting enough. But no sooner does Evie set foot on English soil than she falls for a boy who turns out to be a real prince--in fact, second in line to the throne of England. Edmund is wonderful, even though loving him can be a royal pain, from the demands of his family to the stuck-up aristocrat who thinks she should be the one to win Edmund's heart. All that is swept aside, however, when the riddle of Evie's past surfaces, and the new couple becomes obsessed with figuring out who the real Evie is, with the growing suspicion that the truth will be a shocker

Silver Birch, Blood Moon( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Twenty-one darker, deeper, more adult takes on some of our favorite childhood fairy tales, from acclaimed contemporary fantasistsLong ago, when we were children, our dreams were inspired by the fairy tales we heard at our mothers' and grandmothers' knees--stories of princesses and princes and witches and wondrous enchantments, by the Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen, and from the pages of 1001 Arabian Nights. But, as World Fantasy Award-winning editors Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling remind us, these stories were often tamed and sanitized versions. The originals were frequently darker--and in Silver Birch, Blood Moon, they turn darker still. Twenty-one modern Grimms and Andersens--masterful storytellers including Neil Gaiman, Nancy Kress, and Tanith Lee--now reinvent beloved bedtime stories for our time. The Sea Witch gets her say, relating the story of?The Little Mermaid? from her own point of view.?Thumbelina? becomes a tale of creeping horror, while a delightfully naughty spin is put on?The Emperor's New Clothes.? Author Caitlin R. Kiernan transports Snow White to a dark, gritty, industrial urban setting, and Patricia Briggs details?The Price? of dealing with a royal and unrepentantly evil Rumpelstiltskin. Rich, provocative, and unabashedly adult, each of these tales is a modern treasure, reminding us that wishes have consequences and not all genies have our best interests at heart

Black Swan, White Raven( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dark and decidedly grown-up stories inspired by fairy tales--from New York Times bestsellers Karen Joy Fowler, Joyce Carol Oates, Susanna Clarke, and more. This collection from World Fantasy Award-winning editors Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling proves that fairy tales don't have to be for little children and that happily ever after doesn't necessarily mean forever. Here, the plights of Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, Rapunzel, and others are reimagined by some of today's finest literary talents. Hansel and Gretel make several appearances, not the least being at their trial for the murder of a supposedly helpless old woman. The real, shocking reason for Snow White's desperate flight from her home is revealed. And the steadfast tin soldier, made flesh and blood, pays a terrible price for his love and devotion. The twenty-one stories and poems in this collection run the gamut from triumphant to troubling to utterly outrageous, like Don Webb's brilliant merging of numerous tales into one wild, hallucinogenic trip in his?Three Dwarves and 2000 Maniacs.? All in all, they mine the fantastical yarns we loved as children for new and darker gold. Includes stories by Michael Cadnum, Karen Joy Fowler, Michael Blumlein, Nalo Hopkinson, Esther M. Friesner, Joyce Carol Oates, Steve Rasnic Tem, Garry Kilworth, Anne Bishop, Gregory Frost, Sten Westgard, Midori Snyder, Harvey Jacobs, Don Webb, Bruce Glassco, Pat Murphy, John Crowley, Nina Kiriki Hoffman, Susanna Clarke, Nancy Kress, and Jane Yolen

MIRANDA'S WAR : a novel of the upzone - digitaloriginal edition by Howard Foster( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Lincoln, Massachusetts--a Boston exurb of exquisite taste and understatement--one simply doesn't acknowledge the raw capitalism and the rank privilege that sustain the hot-house liberal sensitivities blooming there. Until Miranda, a woman of devastating wit and looks, enters town politics. Her goal is to force the right-thinking people of Lincoln to confront their hypocrisies, and ultimately, the cherished refinements that prevent them from beating back the barbarians gathering at their perfectly weather-worn, split-rail fences. As Miranda takes her cause from town hall to the governor's office, the reader, gliding in her slipstream, experiences a tour of life in the elegant houses at the end of the unmarked gravel driveways, and gets a glimpse into the minds of the people who live in them, fearful of being noticed by anyone but their own kind. Miranda crusades with all in the righteous certainty of a colonial New England religious dissenter, but contending with the gods of our times. Will she prevail?
Constable : Perfect Square by Victoria Charles( )

4 editions published between 2011 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Constable was the first English landscape painter to take no lessons from the Dutch. He is rather indebted to the landscapes of Rubens, but his real model was Gainsborough, whose landscapes, with great trees planted in well-balanced masses on land sloping upwards towards the frame, have a rhythm often found in Rubens. Constable's originality does not lie in his choice of subjects, which frequently repeated themes beloved by Gainsborough. Nevertheless, Constable seems to belong to a new century; he ushered in a new era. The difference in his approach results both from technique and feeling. Excepting the French, Constable was the first landscape painter to consider as a primary and essential task the sketch made direct from nature at a single sitting; an idea which contains in essence the destinies of modern landscape, and perhaps of most modern painting. It is this momentary impression of all things which will be the soul of the future work. Working at leisure upon the large canvas, an artist's aim is to enrich and complete the sketch while retaining its pristine freshness. These are the two processes to which Constable devoted himself, while discovering the exuberant abundance of life in the simplest of country places. He had the palette of a creative colourist and a technique of vivid hatchings heralding that of the French impressionists. He audaciously and frankly introduced green into painting, the green of lush meadows, the green of summer foliage, all the greens which, until then, painters had refused to see except through bluish, yellow, or more often brown spectacles. Of the great landscape painters who occupied so important a place in nineteenth-century art, Corot was probably the only one to escape the influence of Constable. All the others are more or less direct descendants of the master of East Bergholt
