Written in 1816 when she was only nineteen Mary Shelly's novel of "The Modern Prometheus" chillingly dramatized the dangerous potential of life begotten upon a laboratory table. A frightening creation myth for our own time, Frankenstein remains one of the greatest horror stories ever written and is an undisputed classic of its kind. 206 pages. Soft cover.

Emma, first published in 1819, was written when Jane Austen was at the height of her powers. In it, we have her two greatest comic creations the eccentric Mr. Woodhouse and that quintessential bore, Miss Bates. In it, too, we have her most profound characterization: the witty, imaginative, self-deluded Emma, a heroine the author declared "no one but myself will much like," but who has been much loved by generations of readers. Delightfully funny, full of rich irony, Emma is regarded as one of Jane Austen's finest achievements.

After eighteen years as a political prisoner in the Bastille the aging Dr Manette is finally released and reunited with his daughter in England. There two very different men, Charles Darnay, an exiled French aristocrat, and Sydney Carton, a disreputable but brilliant English lawyer, become enmeshed through their love for Lucie Manette. From the tranquil lanes of London, they are all drawn against their will to the vengeful, bloodstained streets of Paris at the height of the Reign of Terror and soon fall under the lethal shadow of La Guillotine.

George Orwell's classic masterpiece on the dangers of tyranny and oppression came out during a time when socialism and communism were on the rise overseas. When the farm animals decide that the oppression of men over them is too much to bear, they rise to arms with slogans and propaganda to rival any country of men. Orwell's brilliant satire chronicles their rise from idealism to tyranny to totalitarianism. Originally directed against communist Russia, Orwell's piece has evolved into a timeless lesson for all places where freedom is attacked. 140 pages, softcover.
