The Girl on the Boat by P. G. Wodehouse
When Sam Marlowe falls in love with his cousin's sparky ex-fiancée he finds himself up against stiff opposition from her millionaire father, her father's best friend and the best friend's son for whom she is destined, all of them travelling together aboard the RMS Atlantic. Nothing daunted, Sam perseveres in his suit: though he fails at sea he eventually triumphs on land. This Anglo-American musical comedy in prose begins in New York, crosses the Atlantic in leisurely fashion and ends in an English country house where all manner of things go bump in the night.
Adbhut Sannyasi by Rajeev Sharma
यह गाथा है एक निस्पृह योगी की, चिरंजीवी तपस्वी की, कठिनतम कर्तव्यरत निर्विकार पुरुषार्थी की, अपराजेय योद्धा की। वे आवेशावतार नहीं थे, न ही अंशावतार। क्रोधावतार कहकर उन्हें सीमित नहीं किया जा सकता। आज तक पृथ्वी पर उनके शौर्य की झलक है, वह उनकी साक्षात् उपस्थिति में कितनी प्रभावी रही होगी। वे उस भृगुकुल के भूषण थे, जिसकी महिमा का विस्तार पवित्र नदियों और समुद्रों, पर्वतों और गहन वनों में विद्यमान असंख्य आश्रमों में ही नहीं संपूर्ण त्रैलोक्य में था, भगवान् विष्णु के वक्षस्थल से लेकर हिमगिरि में भृगु शिखर तक। मदांध सत्ता की कुटिलता के विरुद्ध जनप्रतिरोध का प्रबलतम स्वर हैं परशुराम। आजकल के कथित लोकतंत्रों के जन्म के युगों पूर्व वे तंत्र पर लोक के प्रभावी नियंत्रण के अधिष्ठाता हैं। यदि भारतीय चेतना यूरोपीय प्रभुत्व की बंधक न हुई होती तो स्वतंत्रता, समानता, बंधुत्व और न्याय के लिए मानवीय संघर्ष की गाथा परशुराम से प्रारंभ हुई होती; कथित फ्रांसीसी क्रांति से नहीं। वे कोरे योद्धा नहीं थे। उन्होंने साधारण मनुष्यों को शास्त्र और शस्त्र दोनों सौंपकर वह सामर्थ्य दिया कि वे स्वयं अभ्युदय और निःश्रेयस पा सकें। उनकी अद्भुत जीवनगाथा हमारे युग को भी स्वमंगल से सर्वमंगल और अराज से स्वराज हेतु प्रेरित कर सके, यही इस कृति का पावन प्रयोजन है।
The Golden Scorpion by Sax Rohmer
Keppel Stuart, M.D., F. R. S., awoke with a start and discovered himself to be bathed in cold perspiration. The moonlight shone in at his window, but did not touch the bed, therefore his awakening could not be due to this cause. He lay for some time listening for any unfamiliar noise which might account for the sudden disturbance of his usually sound slumbers. In the house below nothing stirred. His windows were widely open and he could detect that vague drumming which is characteristic of midnight London; sometimes, too, the clashing of buffers upon some siding of the Brighton railway where shunting was in progress and occasional siren notes from the Thames. Otherwise—nothing. He glanced at the luminous disk of his watch. The hour was half-past two. Dawn was not far off. The night seemed to have become almost intolerably hot, and to this heat Stuart felt disposed to ascribe both his awakening and also a feeling of uncomfortable tension of which he now became aware. He continued to listen, and, listening and hearing nothing, recognized with anger that he was frightened. A sense of some presence oppressed him. Someone or something evil was near him—perhaps in the room, veiled by the shadows. This uncanny sensation grew more and more marked.
A Garland for Girls by Louisa May Alcott
Days to Remember: The British Empire in the Great War by John Buchan
"It is never easy to fix upon one cause as the origin of a great war, and the war of 1914 was the outcome of several causes combined. For twenty years there had been growing up in Europe a sense of insecurity; the great Powers had become restless and suspicious of one another, and one Power, Germany, was seriously considering the possibility of some bold stroke which would put her beyond the reach of rivalry. Germany, since her victory over France in 1870, had become a very great and rich nation; she had spread her commerce over the world; and she was anxious to create an empire akin to those of Britain and France. But she began the task too late in the day; she could succeed only at the expense of her neighbours. The ambition of Germany was, therefore, one perpetual source of danger." -an excerpt

Write It Right by Ambrose Bierce
John Silence, Physician Extraordinary by Algernon Blackwood
“AND what is it makes you think I could be of use in this particular case?” asked Dr. John Silence, looking across somewhat sceptically at the Swedish lady in the chair facing him. “Your sympathetic heart and your knowledge of occultism——” “Oh, please—that dreadful word!” he interrupted, holding up a finger with a gesture of impatience. “Well, then,” she laughed, “your wonderful clairvoyant gift and your trained psychic knowledge of the processes by which a personality may be disintegrated and destroyed—these strange studies you’ve been experimenting with all these years——”

Abandoned by Jules Verne
The present romance, the second in the Mysterious Island triad, was originally issued in Paris with the title of L'Abandonné. Jules Verne's list of stories already ran then to some twenty volumes—a number which has since grown to almost Dumasien proportions. L'Abandonné, like its two companion tales, ran its course as a serial through the Magasin Illustré of education and recreation, before its issue as a boy's story-book. Its success in both forms seems to have established a record in the race for popularity and a circulation in both the French and English fields of current literature. The present book was translated into English by the late W. H. G. Kingston; and is printed in Everyman's Library by special exclusive arrangement with Messrs. Sampson Low, Marston & Co., Ltd.
Fantasia of the Unconscious by DH Lawrence
"The present book is a continuation from "Psychoanalysis and the Unconscious." The generality of readers had better just leave it alone. The generality of critics likewise. I really don't want to convince anybody. It is quite in opposition to my whole nature. I don't intend my books for the generality of readers. I count it a mistake of our mistaken democracy, that every man who can read print is allowed to believe that he can read all that is printed. I count it a misfortune that serious books are exposed in the public market, like slaves exposed naked for sale. But there we are, since we live in an age of mistaken democracy, we must go through with it." -Preface

The Art of Travel; Or, Shifts and Contrivances Available in Wild Countries by Sir Francis Galton
First published in the year 1855, the present book 'The Art of Travel; Or, Shifts and Contrivances Available in Wild Countries' by Sir Francis Galton was conceived during a voyage to southwestern Africa. Quaint, practical, and VERY politically incorrect, this wonderful time capsule reveals how Tibetans keep warm, how the Chinese stop asses braying, how to build a snow house, and a multitude of tried, tested, and now forgotten tips.
William Harvey and the Discovery of the Circulation of the Blood by William Harvey
"I DESIRE this evening to give you some account of the life and labours of a very noble Englishman—William Harvey. William Harvey was born in the year 1578, and as he lived until the year 1657, he very nearly attained the age of 80. He was the son of a small landowner in Kent, who was sufficiently wealthy to send this, his eldest son, to the University of Cambridge; while he embarked the others in mercantile pursuits, in which they all, as time passed on, attained riches." -an excerpt
The inventions, researches and writings of Nikola Tesla by Thomas Commerford Martin
Cinderella Or, The Little Glass Slipper And Other Stories by Anonymous Authors
Once there was a gentleman who married for his second wife the proudest and most haughty woman that was ever seen. She had by a former husband two daughters of her own humor, who were, indeed, exactly like her in all things. He had likewise, by another wife, a young daughter, but of unparalleled goodness and sweetness of temper, which she took from her mother, who was the best creature in the world. No sooner were the ceremonies of the wedding over but the mother-in-law began to show herself in her true colors. She could not bear the good qualities of this pretty girl, and the less because they made her own daughters appear the more odious. She employed her in meanest work of the house: she scoured the dishes, tables, etc., and scrubbed madam’s chamber and those of misses, her daughters; she lay up in a sorry garret, upon a wretched straw bed, while her sisters lay in fine rooms, with floors all inlaid, upon beds of the very newest fashion, and where they had looking-glasses so large that they might see themselves at their full length from head to foot.
