"What you feel first is the simplicity-of sentences, of tone, of description-but then before you know it, complexity has crept in on every level, and by the end of each of these stories you are left marveling at the layers of life history and humanity Curtis Smith has evoked. Beasts and Men, compressed, poetic, poignant, and compassionate, contains some of the best very short fiction I have read in a very long time." -Robin Black, author of If I loved you, I would tell you this

It is rather poignant that this collection of Folk and Fairy Tales from the Flanders region of Belgium was published in 1918, for in the closing stage of the Great War I don’t think there were many, soldiers and civilians living in Flanders, who in 1918 had the fantasy world of folk and fairy tales foremost in mind. Herein are 24 well illustrated tales from the Flanders region of Belgium illustrated by Jean De Bosschère. Also included are 12 full page colour plates plus 106 pen and ink illustrations. To make the volume even more sumptuous, each story has an individually illustrated drop capital. Some of the stories in this superb volume are: Ups And Downs The Three Monkeys How The Goldfinch Got His Colours The Cock And The Fox Sponsken And The Giant The Choristers Of St. Gudule The Magic Cap Sugar-Candy House Poor Peter The Peasant And His Ass The Reward Of The World and many more. So we invite you to download this volume, settle back with a steaming hot toddy, and be prepared to be entertained by this most enjoyable volume from yesteryear. 10% of the net profit will be donated to charities. REVIEWS from 1918: “This handsome and well-illustrated book is one of the most attractive we have seen this season. It gives us renderings of the popular fables and legends current in Flanders and Brabant which have a colour and quaintness of their own, yet combines adventures with an unobtrusive and so more effective moral.”—Saturday Review. “There are delightful stories; even more attractive than the letterpress are M. de Bosschère’s illustrations. Conceived with inexhaustible fancy, full of quaint detail, and set down with a fascinating naïveté they embody the characters and scenes of the tales with a fullness of particularism that should provide endless entertainment to youthful readers. They are the best and most complete series of designs yet produced by the artist.”—Connoisseur. “The illustrations by Jean de Bosschère are of a droll fancy. The artist has a notable power of the grotesque, and both in colour and black and white he uses it.”—Daily Telegraph.

A beast shaped like a man exits a freight train in New York. He barely knows why he is there or from where he came. He has one goal this night, and that is to survive one more day in a world of hostility ruled by conspiracy and malice. He is Reborn, driven by hunger, his need to kill the human herd, and by fear of the masters of this city. His only choice is fealty, the initiation simple: travel to a foreign land, and pay a hermit for his past. But in the spiderweb of politics nothing is easy, nothing is straightforward. Once you are a pawn of the system there is no way back. The only chance for freedom is the other side of the board, in a game played for the planet.Of Beasts and Men is a standalone novel. It is part of the Last Lullabies universe.

Not illustrated. 1882 edition. Excerpt: ... rest it; but as our curiosity was more on the alert than ever, I went down in the afternoon to the tinker camp. The old woman was sitting in her usual position, and she seemed to have recovered herself. Sybil was leaning back against a tree opposite; she wore a hat and shawl, and looked almost as wild as the tinker-mother had looked the day before. She seemed to have been at the inn with the clergywoman, and was telling the tinker-mother the result. "You told her he had got two years, my daughter? Does she say she will get him out?" "She says she has no more power to do it than yourself, mother--and the young gentleman says the same--unless--unless it was made known that Christian was innocent." "Two years," moaned the old woman. "Is she sure we couldn't buy him out, my dear? Two years--oh! Christian, my child, I shall never live to see you again!" She sobbed for a minute, and then raising her hand suddenly above her head, she cried, "A curse on Black--" but Sybil seized her by the wrist so suddenly, that it checked her words. "Don't curse him, mother," said the gipsy erirl, " and I'll--I'll see what I can do. I meant to, and I've come to say good-by. I've brought a packet of tea for you; see that you keep it to yourself. Good-by, mother." "Good evening, my daughter." "I said good-by. You don't hold with religion, do you?" "I does not, so far, my daughter; though I think the young clergywoman speaks very convincingly about it." "Don't you think that there may be a better world, mother, for them that tries to do right, though things goes against them here?" "I think there might very easily be a better world, my dear, but I never was...
