Product Description
Customer Reviews
Do you love mystery stories, such as the Sherlock Holmes stories and those of Edgar Allan Poe and Agatha Christie? Do you ever yearn to be a good writer of mysteries?<br /><br />Carolyn Wells was a prolific author of mystery novels. In this detailed book, she teaches the history, types, principles, devices, plots, and structures of mystery writings. She gives advice to would-be authors of this genre, including ghost and riddle stories as well as detective and crime mysteries.<br /><br />This authoritative work begins with a justification of mystery as a legitimate literary art form, with numerous quotations from authorities. Then proceeding systematically through her topics, she explains and illustrates the mystery-writing craft with excerpts from mystery works and quotations of literary critics and notable authors.<br /><br />The lover of mystery will find many authors and stories cited and excerpted in this book, which would be a good resource for finding more material to satisfy the reader's thirst for the genre. Aspiring authors will find insights through the critical eyes of this successful mystery author and of the many authors whom she quotes.<br /><br />This is virtually a miniature course in creative writing of the mystery story.

Arthur Schnitzlers 'Reigen' ist ein Bühnenstück, das erstmals 1903 erschien. In zehn erotischen Dialogen wird die 'unerbittliche Mechanik des Beischlafs' geschildert und so ein Bild der Moral in der Gesellschaft des 'Fin de siècle' gezeichnet. Das Stück löste nach seiner Uraufführung 1920 einen großen Theaterskandal aus, in dessen Folge Schnitzler ein Aufführungsverbot verhängte, das über seinen Tod hinaus bis 1982 in Kraft blieb. Mit Illustrationen von Egon Schiele und Franz von Bayros.

Number concepts are a human invention developed and refined over millennia. They allow us to grasp quantities precisely: recent research shows that most specific quantities are not perceived in the absence of a number system. Numbers are not innate or universal; yet without them, the world as we know it would not exist.
