"A Night at the Sorrento and Other Stories" collects some of the best work in comics by Henry Chamberlain. He is a longtime cartoonist of the Seattle scene, part of the Generation X ethos of DIY, small press, and the alternative comics aesthetic. The work here favors the offbeat and idiosyncratic. It tends towards the raw and expressive. And the goal is to continue to pursue that independent vision. For more information about the author, and other projects, go to

Just as E. M. Forster's novel of gay love, Maurice, remained unpublished throughout his lifetime, Glenway Wescott's long story "A Visit to Priapus" was also destined to be a posthumous work, buried from 1938 until this century in Wescott's massive archive of manuscripts, journals, notebooks, and letters. The autobiographical story is about a literary man, frustrated in love, who puts aside his pride and makes a date with a young artist in Maine. Lavishly rendered in Wescott's elegant prose, the tale is explicit where it needs to be, but—as is typical of Wescott—it is filled with descriptive beauty and introspective lessons about sex and sexuality, love and creativity. Previously published in anthology form in the United Kingdom, "A Visit to Priapus" is presented for the first time in book form in America, containing previously uncollected stories, including three never before published. The result is a candid portrayal of the gifted but enigmatic writer who was famous in youth and remained a perceptive and compassionate voice throughout his long life. Drawn together from midcentury literary journals and magazines of the 1920s and 1930s, as well as from Wescott's papers, the stories were inspired by his life, from childhood to old age, from Wisconsin farm country to New York, London, Germany, and Paris.

Years ago, with special fondness, I hunted near the village of Glinnoje, which is about twenty versts from my estate. It is probably the best hunting area in the whole counties. After searching all the fields and bushes for game, I went regularly to evening evening to the moorland - it was the only moorland in the whole area - and only went from there to my hospitable innkeeper, the village school of Glinnoje, where I in the hunting season always took place. From the moor I had scarcely two versts to go to the village; the path led through a lowland, and only half way up I had to climb over a not very high hill. On this hill is a small country estate, which consists of an uninhabited mansion and a garden. I almost always passed by at sunset, and the house, with the boarded-up shutters, bathed in the rays of the evening sun, always reminded me of a blind old man who had crawled out of his closet to warm himself in the sun.

This volume contains 33 short stories written by H. G. Wells. The stories were specially chosen by Wells as those that he most wanted to reflect his legacy in short story form. The collection includes the title story - his most well-known - and other masterpieces including the chilling revenge story "The Cone" and "The New Accelerator", a masterful example of his early comedic style. Contents include: "The Jilting Of Jane", "The Cone", "The Stolen Bacillus", "The Flowering Of The Strange Orchid", "The Avu Observatory", "Aepyornis Island", "The Remarkable Case Of Davidson's Eyes", "The Lord Of The Dynamos", "The Moth", "The Treasure In The Forest", "The Story Of The Late Mr. Elvesham", et cetera. Herbert George Wells (1866 - 1946) was a prolific English writer who wrote in a variety of genres, including the novel, politics, history, and social commentary. Today, he is perhaps best remembered for his contributions to the science fiction genre thanks to such novels as "The Time Machine" (1895), "The Invisible Man" (1897), and "The War of the Worlds" (1898). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
