📒The Tales Of Conan The Barbarian A Collection Of Short Stories ✍ Robert E. Howard
✏The Tales of Conan the Barbarian A Collection of Short Stories Book Summary : These early works by Robert E. Howard were originally published in the early 20th century and we are now republishing them with a brand new introductory biography. 'The Tales of Conan the Barbarian' is a compilation of Howard's stories in the Conan series and include 'Beyond the Black River', 'Black Colossus', 'Queen of the Black Coast', and many more. Robert Ervin Howard was born in Peaster, Texas in 1906. During his youth, his family moved between a variety of Texan boomtowns, and Howard - a bookish and somewhat introverted child - was steeped in the violent myths and legends of the Old South. At fifteen Howard began to read the pulp magazines of the day, and to write more seriously. The December 1922 issue of his high school newspaper featured two of his stories, 'Golden Hope Christmas' and 'West is West'. In 1924 he sold his first piece - a short caveman tale titled 'Spear and Fang' - for $16 to the not-yet-famous Weird Tales magazine. Howard's most famous character, Conan the Cimmerian, was a barbarian-turned-King during the Hyborian Age, a mythical period of some 12,000 years ago. Conan featured in seventeen Weird Tales stories between 1933 and 1936 which is why Howard is now regarded as having spawned the 'sword and sorcery' genre. The Conan stories have since been adapted many times, most famously in the series of films starring Arnold Schwarzenegger.

📒Tales From A Korean Maiden In America ✍ Dorothy Hong
✏Tales from a Korean Maiden in America Book Summary : This book proves into hearsays surrounding Koreans in America. My writings illustrate how race has impacted my life and other Koreans vis-à-vis white Americans. I wrote articles to illustrate the interplay of my Korean heritage on my minority status. The range of social issues that I touch upon in my articles includes affirmative action, dating, church life, sexual harassment, volunteerism, sorority life, dorm life, politics, travel and the psycho-dynamics of my relationships with white peers, Koreans abroad, Korean visitors and other Korean immigrants. My short stories identify my disillusionments with some of the disingenuous elements of racial integration. My short stories touch upon issues ranging from racism, sexism, lookism, abortion, homosexuality, and anti-social behaviors. Anti-social behaviors towards a person of racial minority range from a certain curt unfriendliness to maintain distance to abhorrent crimes perpetrated against a person of racial minority in order to maintain status quo due to the notion that minority achievements manifest disruption to status quo. My stories poke fun at these ill at ease individuals with racial integration.
📒Egyptian Tales Translated From The Papyri Ivth To Xixth Dynasty ✍ Sir William Matthew Flinders Petrie
✏Egyptian Tales Translated from the Papyri IVth to XIXth dynasty Book Summary : IT is strange that while literature occupies so much attention as at present, and while fiction is the largest division of our book-work, the oldest literature and fiction of the world should yet have remained unpresented to English readers. The tales of ancient Egypt have appeared collectively only in French, in the charming volume of Maspero's "Contes Populaires" ; while some have been translated into English at scattered times in volumes of the "Records of the Past." But research moves forward ; and translations that were excellent twenty years ago may now be largely improved, as we attain more insight into the language. For another reason also there is a wide ground for the present volume. In no case have any illustrations been attempted, to give that basis for imagination which is all the more needed when reading of an age and a land unfamiliar to our ideas. When following a narrative, whether of real events or of fiction, many persons—perhaps most—find themselves unconsciously framing in their minds the scenery and the beings of which they are reading. To give a correct picture of the character of each of the various ages to which these tales belong, has been the aim of the present illustrations. A definite period has been assigned to each tale, in accordance with the indications, or the history, involved in it; and, so far as our present knowledge goes, all the details of life in the scenes here illustrated are rendered in accord with the period of the story. To some purely scholastic minds it may seem presumptuous to intermingle translations of notable documents with fanciful illustrations. But, considering the greater precision with which in recent years we have been able to learn the changes and the fashions of ancient life in Egypt, and the essentially unhistorical nature of most of these tales, there seems ample reason to provide such material for the reader's imagination in following the stories; it may-give them more life and reality, and may emphasise the differences which existed between the different periods to which these tales refer. It will be noticed how the growth of the novel is shadowed out in the varied grounds and treatment of the tales. The earliest is purely a collection of marvels or fabulous incidents of the simplest kind. Then we advance to contrasts between town and country, between Egypt and foreign lands. Then personal adventure, and the interest in schemes and successes, becomes the staple material; while only in the later periods does character come in as the groundwork. The same may be seen in English literature—first the tales of wonders and strange lands, then the novel of adventure, and lastly the novel of character. In translating these documents into English I have freely used the various translations already published in other languages; but in all cases more or less revision and retranslation from the original has been made. In this matter I am indebted to Mr. F. LI. Griffith, who has in some cases—as in Anpu and Bata—almost entirely retranslated the original papyrus. The material followed in each instance will be found stated in the notes accompanying the tales.
