In the middle of a deep forest is an enchanted valley and a castle where only shadows live, shadows of kings and queens who have waited for hundreds of years for the spell cast upon them to be broken. One day, a girl named Lucy follows a little dog through a tunnel into the valley and meets the mysterious red-haired Michael, who takes her into the shadow world to meet Prince Mika and his mortal wife Gloria, their children and their children’s children, and to learn the magic that will lift the spell. This new expanded edition contains additional chapters not published in the original 1946 edition.

Some roads dry up when highways are built and traffic is detoured from forlorn little lanes that used to lead to somewhere. Yet, when that ‘somewhere’ is gone, so is the road. However, not all that dies quietly fades away into oblivion, and that which refuses to lie down and swallow the end is almost always overtaken by jealousy and hunger, a mirrored loathing for that which lives on. Beware of those roads, because they easily get you in. But hardly get you out. From the author of Feeding the Urge e Dead Men Tell No Tales – The Full Tale, this short story was first published in the anthology SCARE PACKAGE. Now, the complete, expanded version is finally available.

In einer Winternacht gelangt der Landvermesser K. in ein Dorf, das von den Beamten eines mysteriösen Schlosses oberhalb der Stadt beherrscht wird. Die Dorfbewohner begegnen K. mit Misstrauen. Rätselhafte und widersprüchliche Auskünfte behindern K.s Bemühen, einen Weg zum Schloss zu finden. K. behauptet, er sei von den Schlossbeamten als Landvermesser ins Dorf bestellt worden. Vergeblich versucht K. in den folgenden sieben Tagen, ins Schloss vorzudringen. Er kommt nicht voran. Alle Versuche K.s führen ihn im Kreis zum Ausgangspunkt zurück. Tage und Nächte scheinen immer schneller zu verlaufen. K.s Kräfte schwinden. Franz Kafka lässt für seinen letzten Roman »Das Schloss« von 1922 breiten Interpretationsspielraum. »Das Schloss« provozierte eine Vielzahl psychologischer, soziologischer und theologischer Deutungsversuche. Die unerreichbare Machtinstanz auf dem Schlossberg wurde als manipulativer Staat, Gottheit, Symbol des Lebenssinns und vieles mehr ausgelegt. Gerade, indem Franz Kafka in »Das Schloss« keinen eindeutigen Sinngehalt anbot, legte er den Grundstein für die andauernde Faszination des Romans weit über die Grenzen der Literatur hinaus.

Elves and dwarves, trolls and giants, talking dragons, valkyries and werewolves: all these are familiar in modern movies and commercial fantasy. But where did the concepts come from? Who invented them? Almost two centuries ago, Jacob Grimm assembled what was known about such creatures in his work on 'Teutonic Mythology', which brought together ancient texts such as Beowulf and the Elder Edda with the material found in Grimm's own famous collection of fairy-tales. This collection of essays now updates Grimm, adding much material not known in his time, and also challenges his monolithic interpretations, pointing out the diversity of cultural traditions as well as the continuity of ancient myth.

When young King Ghyll and his companions return triumphant from their quest to Zihaen and the battle that nearly cost the king’s foster brother Olle his life, they look forward to a bit of peace. Instead, Ghyll finds his desk stacked with reports of giant wolves and monstrous birds terrorizing the outer provinces of his kingdom, and the local authorities demand he does something about it. Olle discovers his newly acquired estates lie in the heart of the wolf-plagued lands. When the king’s brother decides to look over his domain and see what all the trouble is about, he soon finds out the monsters aren’t the only threat. Meanwhile Zethir, the king’s trusted spy, walks around with a dark secret he cannot divulge. He battles both inner torments and the Dar’khamorth assassins infesting the palace, and the whispering in his head drives him deeper and deeper into the darkness. The royal squire, Torril, disappears and war threatens... Intelligent rats beleaguer a nearby city-state... An allied ruler is murdered... To top it all, Queen Kerianna takes to her bed with pregnancy complications. That bit of peace is further away than ever.
