Flappers and Philosophers
Published in 1920 following the success of the novel This Side of Paradise, Fitzgerald's first collection of short stories includes many of his finest. 'The Offshore Pirate', 'Bernice Bobs Her Hair', 'The Ice Palace' and 'Benediction' present his archetypal Jazz Age heroines, the beautiful and wilful young women who became a hallmark of his fiction. Part of the Cambridge Edition series, this volume includes notes and details of the stories' composition and publication history.
Stories of the Grimm and Gruesome
In this collection inspired by the work of Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm, some of today's finest fantasy and horror writers have created modern – and decidedly darker – versions of classic folk tales. Interspersed with less-familiar ghost stories and tales from Grimm, and illustrated with drawings by Alan Lee, here are Hansel and Gretel, Shock-Headed Peter, elves and rich merchants in far-off lands, re-imagined for adult readers.
