Author: Émile Gaboriau
Publisher: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform
« L'affaire des poisons » est une série d'empoissonnements qui secouèrent Paris et sa cour sous le règne de Louis XIV. La marquise de Brinvilliers est accusée d'avoir empoissonné son père et deux de ses frères à l'aide d'un poison d'apothicaire composé d'arsenic et de bave de crapaud. Son long procès, sa condamnation et son exécution défrayent la chronique. Ils seront rapportés par Madame de Sévigné dans sa correspondance (Lettres en annexe de cette édition). Émile Gaboriau, père du roman policier et inspirateur d'Arthur Conan Doyle, se base sur ses faits historiques pour nous livrer l'un de ses plus beaux textes. À sa mort en 1873, ce roman est inachevé, les derniers chapitres furent rédigés par un inconnu pour permettre sa publication en 1881.

The Oxford Handbook of Arab Novelistic Traditions is the most comprehensive treatment of the subject to date. In scope, the book encompasses the genesis of the Arabic novel in the second half of the nineteenth century and its development to the present in every Arabic-speaking country and in Arab immigrant destinations on six continents. Editor Wail S. Hassan and his contributors describe a novelistic phenomenon which has pre-modern roots, stretching centuries back within the Arabic cultural tradition, and branching outward geographically and linguistically to every Arab country and to Arab writing in many languages around the world. The first of three innovative dimensions of this Handbook consists of examining the ways in which the Arabic novel emerged out of a syncretic merger between Arabic and European forms and techniques, rather than being a simple importation of the latter and rejection of the former, as early critics of the Arabic novel claimed. The second involves mapping the novel geographically as it took root in every Arab country, developing into often distinct though overlapping and interconnected local traditions. Finally, the Handbook concerns the multilingual character of the novel in the Arab world and by Arab immigrants and their descendants around the world, both in Arabic and in at least a dozen other languages. The Oxford Handbook of Arab Novelistic Traditions reflects the current status of research in the broad field of Arab novelistic traditions and signal toward new directions of inquiry.

Villiers De L'isle Adam was one of the greatest symbolist writers of the 19th century. His works, in the Romantic style, are often fantastic in plot and filled with mystery and horror. Originally published in 1886, 'The Future Eve' is a stunning work, noted for popularizing the term 'android'. Many of the horror stories of monsters and ghouls, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
