Seven Gothic Tales by Isak Dinesen: Originally published in 1934, Seven Gothic Tales, the first book by "one of the finest and most singular artists of our time" (The Atlantic), is a modern classic. Here are seven exquisite tales combining the keen psychological insight characteristic of the modern short story with the haunting mystery of the nineteenth-century Gothic tale, in the tradition of writers such as Goethe, Hoffmann, and Poe.
Random Walk by Lawrence Block: A fantastic journey starts one step at a time. Guthrie's got a voice in his head, and it's telling him to go for a walk. So he does--across America. Along the way he meets up with other souls searching for something more from life. And at his side is Sara, a woman whose natural sight has been lost but replaced with mystical visions. Before long remarkable things are happening to all of the walkers. Meanwhile, Mark, a successful businessman who happens to be a serial killer, is also roaming the American landscape. Will Mark cross paths with Guthrie and his soulful band, and if he does, will good triumph over evil?
