A Tramp Abroad

by Mark Twain

A Tramp Abroad is a work of travel literature, including a mixture of autobiography and fictional events, by American author Mark Twain, published in 1880.

The book is the third of Mark Twain's five travel books and is often thought to be an unofficial sequel to the first one, The Innocents Abroad. As the two men make their way through Germany, the Alps, and Italy, they encounter situations made all the more humorous by their reactions to them. The narrato...

Cold Hearted Bitch : The True Story of Lynn Turner

The only thing that Lynn Turner loved more than a man in uniform was the act of killing one. A certified cop killer, she would go on to marry and murder two different police officers in two different counties. It started in 1995 when her husband Glenn Turner came into an emergency room claiming he was “sick with the flu.” He would die one day later. The same affliction would befall her common-law-husband, Randy Thompson. Despite the parallels between the two cases, police still had difficulty proving the case.

Flying Point: One Writer's Journey Into Solitude

by Susan D Anderson

Flying Point, off of Freeport, Maine, is a spit of land that ends in an island so small there are only two houses on it. Friends offered me their get-away home on this island in exchange for ghost writing a book for them. It seemed, at the time, like a miraculous opportunity. I was a middle-aged, burned out college administrator longing to run away from my career and devote myself to writing.I did not anticipate the challenges of living alone on the edge of the wilderness for two years. Some chapters are on the creatures living in that environment, such as herons and eagles, or the handful of people who lived nearby. Tides and weather are frequent subjects, as is the art of writing. But it is the profound personal transformation that took shape as I wrote and reflected on nature that defin...
