The Charterhouse of Parma

The Charterhouse of Parma by Stendhal

The Charterhouse of Parma by Stendhal

This book is more often called The Charterhouse of Parma in English, because “Charterhouse” is the English word for a Carthusian monastery, whereas “Chartreuse” is the French word.

The book tells the life of a Lombard nobleman, born soon after the appearance of Napoleon’s army in Italy. He has many adventures in love, war, politics, and the Church. The politics and the Church part of his life result from his doting aunt’s becoming the Prime Minister’s mistress, and the power behind the throne, in the Duchy of Parma.

The Prime Minister is a wish-fulfillment depiction of the author. Although nobody lives happily ever after, it is a happy book to read, quite unlike “The Red and the Black”.

Orphan Lady Margaret Cheyne returns home on her eighteenth birthday to live with her embittered maiden aunt and to take up her inheritance of the family jewels. The Cheyne jewels include a pendant featuring the Purple Emperor, a priceless jewel looted from a temple during the Indian Mutiny.

During her time at school in Paris, Lady Margaret has met and fallen in love with Sir Edgar Brenton, the son of an old flame of her aunt and a neighbour in the village of Hampton, where Cleek’s adored Ailsa Lorne has also taken up residence.

Lady Margaret’s return leads to a mysterious and sinister chain of events, which Cleek and Superintendent Maverick Narkom of Scotland Yard attempt to unravel, with, of course, the help of the irrepressible and ever-hungry Dollops, Cleek’s cockney sidekick.

Numbacruncha

Numbacruncha by Rigby Taylor

Numbacruncha by Rigby Taylor

“The tale begins with a chilling peek into the near future, when Sebastian and Jarek, now in their eighties, confront a particularly vile religious autocrat, whose reign of terror has led to the destruction of their laboratories, but not their secret weapon.

We then take a thousand year leap to a future city-state in which the human aptitude for duplicitous and unjust social schemes has reached its logical culmination in Oasis, a flesh-crawlingly evil dystopia ruled by the most unpleasant gang of conmen and women you’re ever likely to encounter.

A couple of young scientists who have recently invented a new means of transport, begin to question the morality of the Oasis social order, and decide to do something about it.

Meanwhile, back in the forest, Sebastian and Jarek’s secret weapon are waiting.”

X Y Z, A detective Story

X Y Z, A detective Story by Anna Katharine Green

X Y Z, A detective Story by Anna Katharine Green

“Sometimes in the course of his experience, a detective, while engaged in ferreting out the mystery of one crime, runs inadvertently upon the clue to another. But rarely has this been done in a manner more unexpected or with attendant circumstances of greater interest than in the instance I am now about to relate.

For some time the penetration of certain Washington officials had been baffled by the clever devices of a gang of counterfeiters who had inundated the western portion of Massachusetts with spurious Treasury notes. Some of the best talent of the Secret Service had been expended upon the matter, but with no favorable result, when, one day, notice was received at Washington that a number of suspicious-looking letters, addressed to the simple initials, X. Y. Z., Brandon, Mass., were being daily forwarded through the mails of that region; and it being deemed possible that a clue had at last been offered to the mystery in hand, I was sent northward to investigate.”
