Although it may read to modern audiences like a hilarious slapstick comedy, The Inspector-General is actually much more than that.

The witty play was later used... more...

Satirical genius William Makepeace Thackeray may be best remembered for novels like Vanity Fair, but he first made his name as a writer as a contributor to magazines like Punch.

TOTAL WHEELSPIN should come with a caution: READING THIS IS ADDICTIVE. Whether debating the pros and cons of the chosen transport of superheroes, musing on why people (well, men) hang their arms out the car window, revealing the third-bestselling car of all time, or comparing the school run to taking on Vettel and Alonso in the Formula One Grand Prix,... more...

Gerald Middleton is a sixty-year-old self-proclaimed failure. Worse than that, he?s "a failure with a conscience."

The discovery was in fact the most outrageous archaeological hoax of the... more...

This uproarious comic novel is a must-read for lovers of classic British humor.

This masterwork of satire is a must-read for anyone who has ever rolled their eyes at the soft-focus, heavily romanticized histories of Europe's origins that were popular in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.

In the last extended piece of fiction from beloved American fiction writer and humorist Mark Twain, Satan proudly surveys fin-de-siecle civilization and marvels at its hypocrisies.

- The Floating Press 1909; US$ 3.99
A romance novel that unfolds against the backdrop of a woefully amateurish poultry farm? It may sound like a bizarre concept for a book, but presented with P.G.
