Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Scottish author’s literary masterpiece—the fantastical story of a young boy’s adventures with a woman of supernatural powers. Historically, At the Back of the North Wind ranks as George MacDonald’s most well-known and enduring book, the haunting tale of little Diamond, a simple London cabman’s son and his dreamy encounters with the mysterious, wise, powerful, comforting, and occasionally frightening lady known as North Wind. Their eerie nighttime adventures have captivated readers old and young ever since the book’s publication in 1871. It has been published in more editions than any of MacDonald’s works, and ranks as one of the few (perhaps only) title of MacDonald’s that has likely never been out of print. Its skillfully woven intermingling of realism and fantasy set MacDonald apart as a writer of uniqueness and distinction in the early 1870s as his reputation widened. This edition for The Cullen Collection is unedited in any way.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: It's turn-of-the-century New York, a city bursting with new life as the old century's order makes way for the mercantile class. But in the Pinkerton household a nineteenth-century embarrassment remains. Alice Pinkerton. Alice isn't mad exactly, but she's not sane either. She is tolerated, free to wander about, free to accompany her family to tea parties - free to be treated like a simpleton. But in truth Alice's mind is razor sharp, honed by a restless imagination, years of reading and a profound contempt for her surroundings. Left alone to read, to think, she has devoured the world that brings her mind alive: Shakespeare, Oscar Wilde, Michelangelo, Whitman, Poe, they are her inspiration; Jane Eyre, Catherine Moreland, Desdemona her companions. As she moves through the witless world around her, observing its prejudices, its shallow culture and its vanity, it is society that prompts her observations, viewing all through the prism of the art that has sustained and nourished her lonely life.

This book was released on 2020-12-30 with total page 622 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Find Out Why MacDonald is Considered a Master of Fantasies These three most beloved classic Victorian-era fantasies of George MacDonald transport the reader to another time, real and imagined. At the Back of the North Wind is the tale of a boy named Diamond and his adventures with the mysterious spirit force, the North Wind. This captivating story of Diamond's radiant spirit in the face of the poverty and fatal contagions of the Victorian Age has served as an inspiration for generations. The Princess and the Goblin introduces us to Princess Irene, who lives in her father's castle near wild mountains-a land "full of hollow places underneath," where there lived a race of goblins banished by the King. Curdie, a local miner's son, is befriended by the Princess and, aided by Irene's magical great-great-grandmother, works to stop the plot by the goblins to take over the kingdom. The Princess and Curdie is set two years later, when Curdie is sent by Irene's mysterious great-great-grandmother on a mission to disrupt the enemies of the King as they plot to kill him. Together the old Princess and Curdie rescue the King and Princess Irene, and Irene and Curdie marry, peacefully ruling the kingdom for another generation. Author George MacDonald was a personal friend and mentor to Lewis Caroll, and also influenced the work of renowned fantasy authors C. S. Lewis, J. R. R. Tolkein, and Oz-creator Frank L. Baum. Although MacDonald explored a wide range of subjects in his varied writings, his children's classics remain the most popular, and are clearly written for the young at heart. With 121 illustrations. This book is also available from Echo Point Books in hardcover, ISBN 1635619173.
