Elam Harnish has more money than he would ever need. As he accumulates wealth as a successful entrepreneur in the Alaskan Gold Rush, Harnish must face the challenges of the Yukon Territory. After he makes a fortune, Harnish finds himself still unsatisfied. In efforts to find a new challenge and make more money, Harnish decides to move down to the mainland of America, settling in California. However, after a group of money kings threaten to take his entire amassed fortune, Harnish resorts to violence to recover it, endangering him both physically and morally as he slides down a slippery slope of immorality. Realizing that he can make even more money with undercut business practices, Harnish slowly becomes corrupt, making shady business deals, cheating, and being dishonest. While it gives him more wealth, Harnish soon realizes that money is not all he wants in life. After one of his employees catch his eye, Harnish resorts to harassing her for attention. However, she is a woman of strong will and morals, and refuses his advances. Harnish realizes that she will never reciprocate his attraction if he continues his shady business dealings, but what if it is too late to redeem himself? Filled with action and suspense, Jack London’s Burning Daylight brings an exciting twist to the classic enemies to lovers storyline. Featuring two exciting settings—California and Alaska, Burning Daylight is an entertaining glimpse into the gold rush era of the United States. Through the use of amusing caricatures of hyper-masculinity and hyper-femininity, London’s romance novel also provides intriguing insight on the early 20th century gender expectations. Burning Daylight has inspired several film adaptations over the years, and was among the list of best-selling books when it was released in 1910. With adaptations and record sales, Jack London’s Burning Daylight proves that it is a prolific work able to be enjoyed by audiences even in the 21st century. This edition of Burning Daylight by Jack London is now presented with a new, eye-catching cover and is printed in an easy-to-read font, making it both modern and accessible.

An unprecedented treasury of Yiddish children’s stories and poems enhanced with original illustrations While there has been a recent boom in Jewish literacy and learning within the US, few resources exist to enable American Jews to experience the rich primary sources of Yiddish culture. Stepping into this void, Miriam Udel has crafted an exquisite collection: Honey on the Page offers a feast of beguiling original translations of stories and poems for children. Arranged thematically—from school days to the holidays—the book takes readers from Jewish holidays and history to folktales and fables, from stories of humanistic ethics to multi-generational family sagas. Featuring many works that are appearing in English for the first time, and written by both prominent and lesser-known authors, this anthology spans the Yiddish-speaking globe—drawing from materials published in Eastern Europe, New York, and Latin America from the 1910s, during the interwar period, and up through the 1970s. With its vast scope, Honey on the Page offers a cornucopia of delights to families, individuals and educators seeking literature that speaks to Jewish children about their religious, cultural, and ethical heritage. Complemented by whimsical, humorous illustrations by Paula Cohen, an acclaimed children’s book illustrator, Udel’s evocative translations of Yiddish stories and poetry will delight young and older readers alike.

Castle of Horror Anthology Volume 4

The theme is Gothic-- the horror of Gothic romance. Throughout the mid-century, paperback Gothic romance books dominated the shelves, always featuring a woman running away from a house. (Go ahead, Google "women running from houses.") Gothic romances tended to tell stories of women coming into conflict with old families, old houses and old traditions. So we've asked a bevy of best-selling writers to celebrate the movement with their own horrific takes on gothic. Run from the house with us! In Churl Yo offers a Bradburyesque sci-fi take on the Gothic, Alethea Kontis also chooses sci-fi in her tale of a futuristic medical procedure gone awry, John Ohno brings a classic governess-arrives-and-things-go-bad story, Jim Towns sets his story in 1972 with his movie-world horror tale, Amanda DeWees has a Gothic tale with an ingenious and tech-savvy female, Jeremiah Dylan Cook gives us a mysterious mansion-and sexy maybe-ghost, Leanna Renee Hieber brings us a ballad-like ghost origin story, Rob Nisbet makes a Lovecraft story out of Lovecraft himself, Bonnie Jo Stufflebeam comes to us with a ghost story of a house with its own ideas, Jason Henderson brings the beginning of a serialized story about an expedition into the fabled and haunted House of Usher, Charles R. Rutledge returns with a Carter Decamp psychic mystery, Henry Herz turns to folklore with his tale of a supernatural being wreaking vengeance on Scottish shores, Tony Jones spins us in the direction of violent, supernatural creatures with a taste for the nightlife, Michael Aronovitz weaves a tale about a person coming to terms with what it takes to escape an attic, Sam Knight perfectly evokes the smells and textures of life at an orchard, and Scott Pearson returns us once again to the contemporary era with his feminist commentary on the Modern Gothic.
