When they found out that she knew too much, they had her arrested and tried to eliminate her. She decided she had to leave a message revealing the plot, and did everything she could to save her hide.So, as a Vatican intern 1900 years later, Daisy uncovered a mysterious message from antiquity: the Desiderata stone.

The Parasite by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

The Parasite by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Being a physiologist, Austin Gilroy is unconvinced that the occult is real. His friend Professor Wilson, however, is not only convinced that psychical powers are real, but eagerly desires that Gilroy should be persuaded.

In a Steamer Chair and Other Stories

In a Steamer Chair and Other Stories by Robert Barr

In a Steamer Chair and Other Stories by Robert Barr

Thirteen short stories by one of the most famous writers in his day. Robert Barr was a British Canadian short story writer and novelist, born in Glasgow, Scotland. In London Barr became a more prolific author – publishing a book a year – and was familiar with many of the best selling authors of his day, including Bret Harte and Stephen Crane. Most of his literary output was of the crime genre, then quite in vogue. When Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes stories were becoming well known, Barr published in the Idler the first Holmes parody, “The Adventures of Sherlaw Kombs”, a spoof that was continued a decade later in another Barr story, “The Adventure of the Second Swag”.Despite the jibe at the growing Holmes phenomenon Barr and Doyle remained on very good terms. Doyle describes him in his memoirs Memories and Adventures as, “a volcanic Anglo – or rather Scot American, with a violent manner, a wealth of strong adjectives, and one of the kindest natures underneath it all.” (Summary by Wikipedia)

My Buried Treasure by Richard Harding Davis

My Buried Treasure by Richard Harding Davis

This is a true story of a search for buried treasure. The only part that is not true is the name of the man with whom I searched for the treasure. Unless I keep his name out of it he will not let me write the story, and, as it was his expedition and as my share of the treasure is only what I can make by writing the story, I must write as he dictates. I think the story should be told, because our experience was unique, and might be of benefit to others. And, besides, I need the money.
