Echoes from the Dead
Return from the Dead: Classic Mummy Stories Автор: David S.D.
A weird mixture of adventure, the supernatural and science fiction is found in Jane Webb' s "The Mummy", a tale written in 1827 but set in 2126. "Some Words with a Mummy" is by the great horror writer Edgar Allen Poe. Arthur Conan Doyle' s "The Ring of Thoth" is the classic mummy tale and was the basis for the 1932 movie "The Mummy" starring Boris Karloff and, indeed most mummy films ever since. "Lot 249", another Doyle chiller, completes this collection, which is guaranteed to entertain and possibly prompt a nightmare. 204 руб √ в наличии

Memoirs from the House of the Dead Автор: Fyodor D.
The inticate procedure whereby the men strip for the bath without removing their ten-pound leg-fetters is an extraordinary tour de force, compared by Turgenev to passages from Dante' s Inferno. Terror and resignation - the rampages of a pyschopath, the brief serence interlude of Christmas Day - are evoked by Dostoevsky, writing several years after his release, with a strikingly uncharacteristic detachment. For this reason, House of the Dead is certainly the least Dostoevskian of his works, yet, paradoxically, it ranks among his great masterpieces. In this almost documentary account of his own experiences of penal servitude in Serbia, Dostoevsky describes the physical and mental suffering of the convicts, the squalor and the degradation, in relentless detail. 559 руб √ в наличии
