Short Science Fiction Collections - Book 3 Title: Short Science Fiction Collections Overview: Thousands of short science fiction stories are available through our Short Science Fiction Collections series from classic science fiction authors Jules Verne, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, H. G. Wells, Mary Shelley, Edgar Allan Poe, Washington Irving, Robert Louis Stevenson, Hugo Gernsback, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Philip K. Dick, Kurt Vonnegut, Jr., Frank Herbert, Voltaire, Ray Bradbury, Isaac Asimov, and many other science fiction authors. Science fiction (sometimes shortened to sci-fi or SF where Forrest J Ackerman has been credited with first using the term "sci-fi" in about 1954) is a genre of speculative fiction that typically deals with imaginative and futuristic concepts such as advanced science and technology, space exploration, time travel, parallel universes, and extraterrestrial life. It has been called the "literature of ideas", and it often explores the potential consequences of scientific, social, and technological innovations. Science fiction can trace its roots back to ancient mythology, is related to fantasy, horror, and superhero fiction, and contains many subgenres. Its exact definition has long been disputed among authors, critics, scholars, and readers. Science fiction, in literature, film, television, and other media, has become popular and influential over much of the world, and it is also often said to inspire a "sense of wonder". Besides providing entertainment, it can also criticize present-day society and explore alternatives. The literary genre of science fiction is diverse, and its exact definition remains a contested question among both scholars and devotees. This lack of consensus is reflected in debates about the genre's history, particularly over determining its exact origins. Question of deeper origins aside, science fiction developed and boomed in the 20th century, as the deep integration of science and inventions into daily life encouraged a greater interest in literature that explores the relationship between technology, society, and the individual. Scholar Robert Scholes calls the history of science fiction "the history of humanity's changing attitudes toward space and time ... the history of our growing understanding of the universe and the position of our species in that universe." In recent decades, the genre has diversified and become firmly established as a major influence on global culture and thought.

Short Ghost & Horror Collections - Book 57 Title: Short Ghost and Horror Story Collections Overview: Thousands of short ghost and horror stories are available through our Short Ghost and Horror Story Collections series from classic authors Charles Dickens, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, H. P. Lovecraft, Mary Shelley, Edgar Allan Poe, Washington Irving, Bram Stoker, Lewis Carroll, Gertrude Atherton, Mark Twain, H. G. Wells, Rudyard Kipling, Oscar Wilde, Joseph Conrad, Harriet Beecher Stowe, and many other classic authors. A ghost story is any piece of fiction, or drama, that includes a ghost, or simply takes as a premise the possibility of ghosts or characters' belief in them. The "ghost" may appear of its own accord or be summoned by magic. Linked to the ghost is the idea of a "haunting", where a supernatural entity is tied to a place, object, or person. Colloquially, the term "ghost story" can refer to any kind of scary story. In a narrower sense, the ghost story has been developed as a short story format, within genre fiction. It is a form of supernatural fiction and specifically weird fiction and is often a horror story. Horror is a genre of speculative fiction that is intended to frighten, scare, or disgust. Literary historian J. A. Cuddon defined the horror story as "a piece of fiction in prose of variable length... which shocks, or even frightens the reader, or perhaps induces a feeling of repulsion or loathing". Horror intends to create an eerie and frightening atmosphere for the reader. Horror is often divided into the psychological horror and supernatural horror sub-genres. Often the central menace of a work of horror fiction can be interpreted as a metaphor for larger fears of a society. While ghost stories are often explicitly meant to scare, they have been written to serve all sorts of purposes, from comedy to morality tales while horror stories encompass societal fears. Some of these stories are centuries old, with varying versions across multiple cultures.

Short Ghost & Horror Collections - Book 53 Title: Short Ghost and Horror Story Collections Overview: Thousands of short ghost and horror stories are available through our Short Ghost and Horror Story Collections series from classic authors Charles Dickens, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, H. P. Lovecraft, Mary Shelley, Edgar Allan Poe, Washington Irving, Bram Stoker, Lewis Carroll, Gertrude Atherton, Mark Twain, H. G. Wells, Rudyard Kipling, Oscar Wilde, Joseph Conrad, Harriet Beecher Stowe, and many other classic authors. A ghost story is any piece of fiction, or drama, that includes a ghost, or simply takes as a premise the possibility of ghosts or characters' belief in them. The "ghost" may appear of its own accord or be summoned by magic. Linked to the ghost is the idea of a "haunting", where a supernatural entity is tied to a place, object, or person. Colloquially, the term "ghost story" can refer to any kind of scary story. In a narrower sense, the ghost story has been developed as a short story format, within genre fiction. It is a form of supernatural fiction and specifically weird fiction and is often a horror story. Horror is a genre of speculative fiction that is intended to frighten, scare, or disgust. Literary historian J. A. Cuddon defined the horror story as "a piece of fiction in prose of variable length... which shocks, or even frightens the reader, or perhaps induces a feeling of repulsion or loathing". Horror intends to create an eerie and frightening atmosphere for the reader. Horror is often divided into the psychological horror and supernatural horror sub-genres. Often the central menace of a work of horror fiction can be interpreted as a metaphor for larger fears of a society. While ghost stories are often explicitly meant to scare, they have been written to serve all sorts of purposes, from comedy to morality tales while horror stories encompass societal fears. Some of these stories are centuries old, with varying versions across multiple cultures.

Short Ghost & Horror Collections - Book 44 Title: Short Ghost and Horror Story Collections Overview: Thousands of short ghost and horror stories are available through our Short Ghost and Horror Story Collections series from classic authors Charles Dickens, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, H. P. Lovecraft, Mary Shelley, Edgar Allan Poe, Washington Irving, Bram Stoker, Lewis Carroll, Gertrude Atherton, Mark Twain, H. G. Wells, Rudyard Kipling, Oscar Wilde, Joseph Conrad, Harriet Beecher Stowe, and many other classic authors. A ghost story is any piece of fiction, or drama, that includes a ghost, or simply takes as a premise the possibility of ghosts or characters' belief in them. The "ghost" may appear of its own accord or be summoned by magic. Linked to the ghost is the idea of a "haunting", where a supernatural entity is tied to a place, object, or person. Colloquially, the term "ghost story" can refer to any kind of scary story. In a narrower sense, the ghost story has been developed as a short story format, within genre fiction. It is a form of supernatural fiction and specifically weird fiction and is often a horror story. Horror is a genre of speculative fiction that is intended to frighten, scare, or disgust. Literary historian J. A. Cuddon defined the horror story as "a piece of fiction in prose of variable length... which shocks, or even frightens the reader, or perhaps induces a feeling of repulsion or loathing". Horror intends to create an eerie and frightening atmosphere for the reader. Horror is often divided into the psychological horror and supernatural horror sub-genres. Often the central menace of a work of horror fiction can be interpreted as a metaphor for larger fears of a society. While ghost stories are often explicitly meant to scare, they have been written to serve all sorts of purposes, from comedy to morality tales while horror stories encompass societal fears. Some of these stories are centuries old, with varying versions across multiple cultures.

Author, historian, and vintage book collector Pamela McColl tours America in 2022 speaking on the poem's vibrant legacy at dozens of museums, bookstores, and libraries. McColl presents the poem's story in a new book, Twas The Night – The Art and History of the Classic Christmas Poem. The author calls the masterpiece of juvenile fiction the most often read, recited, reprinted, and collected work in the library of English literature and considers the 200th milestone of this warm-hearted poem cause for celebration. “In compiling the material for Twas The Night – The Art and History of the Classic Christmas Poem I accessed art collections and combed through archives across America. I made fascinating discoveries including locating the only known to exist photograph of the poet Clement Clarke Moore ( New York 1779-1863) and of the home where the lines were crafted for Christmas Eve 1822.” McColl “Charles Dickens and Washington Irving may have created Christmas dinner, but it was Moore “The Poet of Christmas Eve” who gave us Santa Claus with all the trimmings.” McColl“For the very first time, the poem's own story is presented. It's a luscious, entertaining tome that took ten years to create. Bravo, author and editor, Pamela McColl! ” David Paul Kirkpatrick, American film producer and writer, former President Paramount Pictures, President Production Walt Disney Pictures, Touchstone Pictures. “A delightful and informative exploration of “A Visit From St. Nicholas” for the holiday season.” Kirkus Reviews. “Whether a library is focused on art, history, popular culture, or Christmas, Twas the Night: The Art and History of the Classic Christmas Poem represents an outstanding work of literature and a compelling read the entire family can enjoy.” Diane Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review. Five Star Rating Amanda Ellison, Indie Reader: “All readers could ever wish to learn--in pictures and prose--about the world's definitive festive verse. - Pamela McColl's Twas The Night: The Art and History of the Classic Christmas Poem, is packed full of vintage illustrations and lesser-known historical details that make the book a bundle of perennial joy, for believers and non-believers alike.” In 2012, McColl created a firestorm from Colbert to Barbara Walters over her smoke-free edition of the poem: Twas The Night Before Christmas edited by Santa Claus for the Benefit of Children of the 21st.

It sounds bizarre, I know. We interviewed Charles briefly in the book "Backstage Pass to the Flipside" so his presence didn't throw me for a loop.   I really did look at a note on my cellphone this morning about a story that he's in - and his pal Washington Irving.  And for him to say "that's why I stopped by" is mind bending to say the least. We start off the podcast with Jennifer revealing that her mom is in the hospital, and her emotions around the loss of her dad, five years ago. He's come by a number of times to chat with us, including taking us on a trip to an Akashic library, as well as going to visit the classroom on the flipside where he described his physics teacher in detail.  The woman has 8 arms, and is known as Ma Durga on the planet - no other way to put it, as we've spoken with her a number of times, and Jennifer has had long conversations with her.  The point isn't that a "deity from earth" is hanging out in the flipside, but rather people on earth have identified a teacher on the flipside as a deity. In this case, I knew that Dickens had visited Washington Irving, I know that he purchased some property in Cairo Illinois (a land scam that claimed it was going to be the next "city on the Nile") I know that he visited a garment factory in Boston where he asked them to tell him some local ghost stories. I know that when he visited Irving, Irving's uncle had taken up resident at his home and his name was Ebeneezer. As Jennifer pointed out, she never could have guessed that name - but Charles was specific about who greeted him when he crossed over (a deaf child, perhaps the model for Tiny Tim) and how his book was about the financial politics of the day, the Victorian era when the rich got richer and the poor died of starvation. Jennifer mentioned the chapter in Architecture of the Afterlife where Tony Stockwell recalled a lifetime in Victorian London, where he and his brother both died of starvation in one of those "workhouses."  Awful places for humans to be place - without any help from the government. So A Christmas Carol was a tale about how to be kind to others and to give around the holiday time. He also gives a review of the film "Splendid" which is both hilarious and mind bending. When asked about it, he said "I hate musicals."  Hilarious reply - and then he said he was kidding, he loved the film and loved what Will Ferrell did with the part. I mean - c'mon - Will's never going to believe that Charles Dickens showed up on our podcast tonight to compliment him on his performance in SPIRITED, but that is EXACTLY WHAT HE DID. We've been doing this for 8 years. Jennifer works with law enforcement nationwide, and just last week was part of an operation that was able to track down and eliminate 450 pounds of fentanyl.  She's the real deal. Apologies for my cough - not much I can do, other than to say, I hope it clears up soon! And happy holidays to you all.  Enjoy our Christmas special with the one and only Charles Dickens!

A whole lot of nonsense has been written about the invention of the modern Christmas. It was thought up by Washington Irving or Charles Dickens or Prince Albert. We just can't resist attaching a famous name to things, especially if the name belongs to a writer or a royal. We deserve better than this.

Short Ghost & Horror Collections - Book 37 Title: Short Ghost and Horror Story Collections Overview: Thousands of short ghost and horror stories are available through our Short Ghost and Horror Story Collections series from classic authors Charles Dickens, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, H. P. Lovecraft, Mary Shelley, Edgar Allan Poe, Washington Irving, Bram Stoker, Lewis Carroll, Gertrude Atherton, Mark Twain, H. G. Wells, Rudyard Kipling, Oscar Wilde, Joseph Conrad, Harriet Beecher Stowe, and many other classic authors. A ghost story is any piece of fiction, or drama, that includes a ghost, or simply takes as a premise the possibility of ghosts or characters' belief in them. The "ghost" may appear of its own accord or be summoned by magic. Linked to the ghost is the idea of a "haunting", where a supernatural entity is tied to a place, object, or person. Colloquially, the term "ghost story" can refer to any kind of scary story. In a narrower sense, the ghost story has been developed as a short story format, within genre fiction. It is a form of supernatural fiction and specifically weird fiction and is often a horror story. Horror is a genre of speculative fiction that is intended to frighten, scare, or disgust. Literary historian J. A. Cuddon defined the horror story as "a piece of fiction in prose of variable length... which shocks, or even frightens the reader, or perhaps induces a feeling of repulsion or loathing". Horror intends to create an eerie and frightening atmosphere for the reader. Horror is often divided into the psychological horror and supernatural horror sub-genres. Often the central menace of a work of horror fiction can be interpreted as a metaphor for larger fears of a society. While ghost stories are often explicitly meant to scare, they have been written to serve all sorts of purposes, from comedy to morality tales while horror stories encompass societal fears. Some of these stories are centuries old, with varying versions across multiple cultures.

A ghost story is any piece of fiction, or drama, that includes a ghost, or simply takes as a premise the possibility of ghosts or characters' belief in them.

It is a form of supernatural fiction and specifically weird fiction and is often a horror story. Horror is a genre of speculative fiction that is intended to frighten, scare, or disgust.
