Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (often shortened to Huck Finn) is a novel written by American humorist Mark Twain. It is commonly used and accounted as one of the first Great American Novels. It is also one of the first major American novels written using Local Color Regionalism, or vernacular, told in the first person by the eponymous Huckleberry "Huck" Finn, best friend of Tom Sawyer and hero of three other Mark Twain books.<br /><br />The book is noted for its colorful description of people and places along the Mississippi River. By satirizing Southern antebellum society that was already a quarter-century in the past by the time of publication, the book is an often scathing look at entrenched attitudes, particularly racism. The drifting journey of Huck and his friend Jim, a runaway slave, down the Mississippi River on their raft may be one of the most enduring images of escape and freedom in all of American literature.

A Young Adult story and an easy read - ideal for advanced German learners. Bilingual paragraph-by-paragraph layout and illustrations facilitate comprehension. Historical context of West Berlin's geopoliltical situation in the afterword. --- <br />We are in a squatted house in West Berlin in the early 80s. Every day is a battle against the elements: The cops looking for drugs, a bunch of skinheads smashing windows, or it's Frau Steinmöller again, the lovely neighbor from across the street. Fortunately, the squatters always manage to outsmart their enemies. Only "special needs" Heiner is a tough nut to crack since he just won't let go. Adding to the supreme madness: The trials and tribulations of our brave, anarchist squatters happen on a "capitalist island," surrounded by a booby-trapped wall and an absurd communist regime. --- <br />"There's a great sense of humour - a true gift." --- "Hard to put down. A nicely constructed read with a good tempo." --- "Wild Years in West Berlin will make you wish you had been there!" --- "Mit viel Ironie und Witz schildert Drawe das Unverständnis zwischen den Generationen. Ein Zeitdokument." --- "Vorsicht: Es könnte das Bedürfnis entstehen, ein Haus zu besetzen!" (Reviews on Amazon.com and Amazon.de)

Turkeys and tomatoes have very little in common but that doesn’t mean you should call Mother Nature a slut just because they both come from her womb. <br /><br />It’s exactly that kind of philosophical nonsense that continuously rattles off his friend Abe’s tongue, which makes Raymond Chapman wonder why he asked Abe to help him in the first place. But when you agree to help God out of a jam you need all the help you can get. <br /><br />Can Ray, Abe and a motley crew of fellow adventurers find and activate a mysterious device that was hidden by God in the lost City of Atlantis? A device God claims will save all human kind from certain self-annihilation. Or will Lucifer, God’s malevolent offspring, spur humanity’s demise through the buffoonish shenanigans of the totally inept Vice President of the United States first?<br /><br />From the Big Island of Hawaii through Atlanta, South Beach, the Florida Keys and into the Bermuda Triangle that question will ultimately be answered but not before Ray enjoys the world’s most righteous blueberry pie, learns how to levitate and discovers the true meaning of life.<br />

Let's face it; sometimes you need a laugh. Alternatively, a reason to look a little sideways at life. <br /><br />There are few genres more challenging to write than humor, but in this issue, our authors elevated short fiction funny to a whole new level. Their styles vary as much as their main characters, but one thing is certain. Squeeze this pocket-sized read into your busy day, and we promise it'll get brighter.<br /><br />From S. L. Saboviec, experience the strangest, most histrionic flower show this side of reality television in "How the 576th Annual Pollen Festival Blossomed My Budding Career."<br /><br />In "Strays" by Marion Deeds, a pair of shoes adopts a new owner. You don't have to be a diehard fashionista to understand the pull of a fabulous set of heels. Sometimes empowerment comes from the strangest places.<br /><br />Returning FFO author, Zach Shephard brings "The Black Clover Equation." The perfect formulation for good luck has never gone so unluckily. <br /><br />Moreover, in his FOURTH April FFO appearance, John Wiswell returns yet again, this time with a superhero reprint, "The Terrible." Originally published in Daily Science Fiction, The Terrible is not Mercer. (Really. Stop calling him that.) Locked in his epic Bad-Guy struggle against Invulnerabella, The Terrible just wants to use his power-armor. Is that too much to ask?<br /><br />Finally, a new installment of FXXK WRITING by Jason S. Ridler. Silence and Stupidity Part I explores how punk rock saved his life...and taught him to succeed both at writing and life. <br /><br />Enjoy!

It is the year 2037. The world has been ravaged by pollution and mostly taken over by evil conglomerates. Ella Longshot is a 15 year old teenager with a self-proclaimed 'attitude'. She has dark hair, amber eyes and is in possession of a host of clichés found in various piles of young adult fiction.<br /><br />As a proud member of the Alliance Rebellion, formerly known as the Alliance Opposition, Ella experiences love, tragedy and betrayal in her ultimately succesful attempt to save the world. Also, she borrows a katana.<br /><br />Dystopian Shadows is satire, poking fun at a popular genre. Meant to be bad, intended to be fun.

Cocos aktueller Freund ist nicht der Mann für ewig, das spürt sie. Doch sie sieht es locker, bis sie auf Tristan trifft. Er taucht eines Abends auf und beschert Coco die ersten Lieblingsküsse ihres Lebens. <br />Allerdings ist der Architekt mit den testosteronblauen Augen gerade schmählich verlassen worden und scheint ein handfestes Beziehungs-Trauma entwickelt zu haben. Auch in den Partnerschaften von Cocos Freundeskreis spielen sich haarsträubende Dinge ab. Man muss sich schon wundern, weshalb manchen Frauen der Glücksgriff gelingt und anderen nicht. Maßlos enttäuscht beschließt Coco, Männer nur noch zu egoistischen Zwecken an sich heran zu lassen. An fröhlichem Zeitvertreib mangelt es der Kunstdozentin wahrhaftig nicht, ein Aktmalkurs beschert Zerstreuung und einen Heidenspaß. <br />Doch dann entdeckt Coco ein Inserat in der Zeitung: Sie bucht ein Wochenende für zwei Personen in einem Hotel namens Kussmühle, das mit innovativen Kursangeboten lockt und allerlei Überraschungen bereithält…<br />
