Bio

The classic perennial sellers are the books you trust to routinely give you hours of engaging entertainment. And every time you read it again, it's like the author has been busy editing and adding new material while you were away.

Take any genre you love, and you'll find there are great authors who have delivered great content a decade, or a century, or even longer ago.

The trick is finding quality versions of these. The free ones have many errors, poor covers, and lacking descriptions. Quality editions treat each book as if it is just being released into today's market. They are properly proofread and styled for today's reading audience.

The Art of War, a Samurai Master Class - by Sun Tzu, Mushashi Miyamoto, Imazo Nitobe

Few books have continued their bestselling status centuries after their author's death.

Like other classics, such as the Gospels of Jesus, and Lao Tze's Tao Te Chung, there is much discussion of who actually wrote them and how.

What is important is how such books are used. Because only extremely useful books continue in demand at bookstores, especially over generations.

Wikipedia notes: The Art of War has been applied to many fields well outside of the military. Much of the text is about how to fight wars without actually having to do battle: it gives tips on how to outsmart one's opponent so that physical battle is not necessary. As such, it has found application as a training guide for many competitive endeavors that do not involve actual combat...

The Story of Henry Ford: An American Dream Come True - by Rose Wilder Lane, Henry Ford, Samuel Crowther

FEW PEOPLE have had the transformative success as Henry Ford of Dearborn Michigan, USA.

While his life-story transformed the nation and the world, the effects on its author are less understood.

The purpose of this book is to explore his story as an additional study to Napoleon Hill's bestselling “Think and Grow Rich.” In Hill's book, few individuals in it have more anecdotes used as examples than Ford – excepting Thomas Edison himself (who gave Ford an early boost in one of his companies.)

In most days, people are challenged by their environment. They can rise to the challenge, or succumb to it. A rare few among them can see opportunity and seize it – creating a new world from a unique and unstoppable vision they hold...

How to Speak and Write Correctly by Joseph Devlin

Learn the Easy Way to Speak and Write Well.
I found this book by accident while browsing through a now-defunct Los Angeles bookstore/cafe. It was the luckiest accident of my life.At that point I had been a professional writer for more than twenty years, but I rarely enjoyed my work, and I felt all of it was disposable in one way or another.

At first, reading this book gave me an incredible, if unfamiliar, feeling of joy and self-confidence. Afterwards, I began to surprise the hell out of myself in terms of what I was able to accomplish.

This little book is very practical and precise.

The best plan is to follow the best authors and these masters of language will guide you safely along the way...

Shambleau by C. L. Moore

HAD Northwest Smith, the famous outlaw of the spaceways, been able to foresee the future, he would not have shielded the frightened, scarlet-clad girl from the wild mob pursuing her through the narrow streets of Lakkdarol, Earth's last colony on Mars. "Shambleau! Shambleau!" the crowd cried with loathing and disgust, but Smith drove them off with his blaster and took the exhausted girl to his quarters. There was no hair upon her face — neither brows nor lashes; but what lay hidden beneath the tight scarlet turban bound around her head?

So begins one of the strangest, and possibly the most famous, of stories by C. L. Moore. When it first appeared "Shambleau" was acclaimed by readers, authors, and editors as the debut of a truly gifted talent...

Ann Veronica by H. G. Wells

When a woman finds her true self, she can then open her eyes to love.

Ann Veronica deals with contemporary political issues of Edwardian England, concentrating specifically on feminist issues. In the course of the action the heroine matures from an innocent and naïve girl to a representative of the New Woman. Wells portrays the attitudes of that time, in particular those of the heroine's father and boyfriends who are completely unable to understand why a woman should want to be independent, study science, have the right to vote, and so on. These male chauvinists are not portrayed as bad people, but as men blindered by the education of the time.

Queen of the Martian Catacombs by Leigh Brackett

The leader of the four men rode slowly toward the tor, his right arm raised.His voice carried clearly on the wind.

"Eric John Stark!" he called, and the dark man tensed in the shadows.The rider stopped. He spoke again, but this time in a different tongue. It was no dialect of Earth, Mars or Venus, but a strange speech, as harsh and vital as the blazing Mercurian valleys...

Loveday Brook, Lady Detective - by Catherine Louisa Pirkis

One of the first woman detectives - in the times of Sherlock Holmes.

In the days of Doyle's "Sherlock Holmes" there were also feminine characters who solved crime in their own fashion. Such were the cases of Loveday Brooke.

She found employment with Ebenezer Dyer, the chief of a well-known detective agency in Lynch Court, Fleet Street. Although her new profession of investigating crimes further distanced her from high society...

"From the Edinburgh Lectures I had read something about the Law of Attraction, and from the Chapter of "Causes and Conditions" I had gleaned a vague idea of visualizing. So every night, before going to sleep, I made a mental picture of the desired $20,000... I wrote out my picture, saw myself buying my steamer ticket, walking up and down the ship's deck from New York to London, and, finally, saw myself accepted as Troward's pupil."

Now you can learn, as she did - with her unique and personal insight into Troward and his genius...
