Robert Kirk The Secret Commonwealth of Elves, Fauns, and Fairies


“The Secret Commonwealth of Elves, Fauns, and Fairies” is the famous and mysterious treatise on fairy folklore, witchcraft, second sight, and ghosts by Gaelic scholar and minister, Robert Kirk. Written before he died in 1692, the work was not published until 1815 after many legends had grown around Kirk’s death, which imagined that he was secreted away by the fairies themselves for revealing their secrets. Most famous during his own lifetime for publishing one of the first translations of the Bible into Gaelic, Kirk spent much of his professional life collecting the many folklore tales native to Scotland. He believed that these tales of fairies, witches, and ghosts, as well as stories claiming that many Scots were gifted with second sight, or extrasensory perception, were proof that the stories in the Bible were in fact true and supernatural phenomenon in fact existed. While Kirk died before his collection of otherworldly encounters was published, it is widely regarded by scholars as one of the most important and significant works on fairy folklore and the Scottish belief in second sight. Many of our modern depictions of fairies can find their origins in this fascinating and historically important work that continues to entertain and inspire readers the world over.

Secret Of The Second Door by Robert Colby - Goodreads

Yes, Shepard is a bit of a dope, but before you know it, Robert Colby pulls you into this ride and slams you upside the head with some brutal violence, vicious hoodlums, two-timing babes and a would-be sucker blinded by misplaced honor. Nice example of the Gold Medal brand of 50's noir. Colby is a writer worth seeking out.

A TRIBUTE TO ROBERT COLBY, by Peter Enfantino

Robert Colby died last week. A lot of people won’t even recognize the name. That’s a shame, but it’s their loss.

Douglas-Fairhurst Robert The Story of Alice. Lewis Carroll and The Secret History of Wonderland


SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2015 COSTA BIOGRAPHY AWARD. This is the secret history of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Wonderland is part of our cultural heritage. But beneath the fairy tale lies the complex history of the author and his subject. Charles Dodgson was a quiet academic but his second self, Lewis Carroll, was a storyteller, innovator and avid collector of 'child-friends'. Carroll's imagination was to give Alice Liddell, his 'dream-child', a fictional alter ego that would never let her grow up. This is a biography that beautifully unravels the magic of Alice. It is a history of love and loss, innocence and ambiguity. It is the story of one man's need to make a Wonderland in a changing world.

Richard Aldrich The Black Door: Spies, Secret Intelligence and British Prime Ministers


The Black Door explores the evolving relationship between successive British prime ministers and the intelligence agencies, from Asquith’s Secret Service Bureau to Cameron’s National Security Council.Intelligence can do a prime minister’s dirty work. For more than a century, secret wars have been waged directly from Number 10. They have staved off conflict, defeats and British decline through fancy footwork, often deceiving friend and foe alike. Yet as the birth of the modern British secret service in 1909, prime ministers were strangers to the secret world – sometimes with disastrous consequences. During the Second World War, Winston Churchill oversaw a remarkable revolution in the exploitation of intelligence, bringing it into the centre of government. Chruchill’s wartime regime also formed a school of intelligence for future prime ministers, and its secret legacy has endured. Margaret Thatcher, Tony Blair and David Cameron all became great enthusiasts for spies and special forces. Although Britain’s political leaders have often feigned ignorance about what one prime minister called this ‘strange underworld’, some of the most daring and controversial intelligence operations can be traced straight back to Number 10.

Мэри Элизабет Брэддон Lady Audley's Secret


First published serially in 1861, Mary Elizabeth Braddon’s “Lady Audley’s Secret” is the wildly successful Victorian-era sensation novel. Sensation novels were very popular in English literature in the 1860s and 1870s.

At the center of the mystery is Robert’s uncle’s wife, Lucy Audley, the Lady Audley of the novel’s title and who Robert suspects of keeping secrets. With George’s young son in questionable safety and lies, deception, and treachery surrounding him, Robert must uncover all that Lady Audley has hidden about her past while finding himself in increasing danger. A bestseller in Victorian England despite its scandalously immoral content, “Lady Audley’s Secret” addresses the domestic anxieties and gender and class conflicts of the era while at the same time featuring a remarkable and complex female character.
