El tiempo en los ojos

By: Alfonso Chacon Rodriguez

Los recuerdos se agolpan, abriendo paso como abre un cuchillo la piel: ¿cómo traer de vuelta el pasado sin que regrese el dolor? ¿Cómo justificar la traición, el olvido, el abandono, sin importar la causa, los motivos?...

Pero entre los gritos ella no entiende su nombre, no descifra el "¡Tita, Tita!", conque la interpelan sobre la algarabía del chaparrón, en tanto su hija la tira de la mano, porque un auto sube la cuesta y de ella desciende un espectro que es copia del pasado: el cabello rojizo y una mirada amarilla con una mujer y dos niñas de trenzas negras detrás, y su hija se detiene en su tirón, antes de gritar, conforme sus ojos oscilan hacia el diluvio que nubla la visión, la tierra mojada que rechaza los golpes del líquido ajeno, la tierra endurecida que no sabe ahora, como no supo aquel lejano día aceptar de inmediato el agua, como ella, como la tierra que no se abrió ni se abre como ella ni como la piel cuando la traza un machete afilado. No, piensa, la tierra no otorga de inmediato su complacencia al arado, incluso si ha sido largo tiempo abandonada; no es como ella, entregada al cuerpo oloroso que la extendió sobre el catre y la penetró en un mutuo gemido que fue como un sacrificio ritual, dos cuerpos sudorosos por el calor de la tarde que permanecieron tendidos, mientras la tarde caía y ella pensaba en Ramiro sin pensar en su propio c...

Ayer La Lluvia

By: Emilio Pérez Miguel

A book that analyzes the different archetypes of love, "Ayer La Lluvia" [Yesterday The Rain] is the first work in prose published by Uruguayan writer Emilio Pérez Miguel, and his third book overall after having released two volumes of poetry. In "Ayer La Lluvia", all the shades and half-shades that can constitute any person's inner landscape are surveyed across eleven micro-stories and a short novel, and the ways in which human beings can either be deprived of their most basic motivations or propelled towards their greatest successes are studied time and again. Beginning with "Hemisferios" [Hemispheres] (about the love that leads to death) and ending with "Cuando Estabas Ahí" [In The Days That You Were There] (a short novel centered on the death that leads to love) the pages of the book ponder on archetypes as different as ideal love, real love, surrogate love, the love for hatred... basically, all these stations in which any person's emotional journey can come to rest are arrived at. And the decision to stay anywhere for longer than intended or to take a leave before the time has truly come is analyzed to the bitter end....

КНЯЗ БАТЕНБЕРГ/ ГРАФ ХАРТЕНАУ

By: Mrs. Kristin Stoyanova Yurukova; Marlena Stoyanova Yurukova, Illustrator

A novel on Knyaz Alexander of Battenberg, the first prince of modern Bulgaria

Крачи в редиците на австрийската войска, всяка крачка отхвърля някоя мисъл. Не от вчера е без Kняжеството, не от вчера е в изгнание. Княз без Княжество, „Да имаш и да нямаш!“ - както често повтаряше Мари. Изгнание къде? За какво изгнание става дума? Изгнание в света, в който е израснал? Изгнание в родното? След като си разбрал, че да си чужденец повече ти приляга? Единствено Йохана му помага да не е в изгнание от собствения си живот. Понякога и това се случва – минаваш в изгнание от живота си, единствения ти, а после време няма. Един безличен субект, загубил името си нейде по пътя. Пътят, по който марширува граф Хартенау, не се разклонява в хиляда посоки, та да се чуди кой път да хване, като в България. „Който и път да хванеш, все ще си отвян на бял кон - бе мнението на чистачката на двореца му в България. - Тъй че няма какво да му мислиш толкова.“ Чистачката не владееше етикета и си му говореше на „ти“ и на „мойто момче“....

The Pond

By: Aleksei Mihailovich Remizov; Stephen Whitmore Jones, Translator

The Pond was published in 1905, the first novel of Aleksei Remizov (1877-1957), an important Russian modernist writer and artist who emigrated after the 1917 revolution....

But there on a rusty nail in the Ogorelyshyovs’ submerged fence that divided the Sinichka from the pond there was something gleaming grey in the green moonlit night — one of the demons, a little demon with a face of incorruptible, indignant human integrity and fairness stretches his leg upwards and outwards a long way like a cat and laughs a bitter crooked laugh through his closed lips. Now he knew what new life Kolya has set off into and why Arsenii gave the order for the Finogenovs to be thrown out like a dog onto the street in bad weather, and why all the human misery, enough to make a flintstone crackle, why all the evil fate and calamity and ill fortune and why some are doomed to it and others are free. But did he know? And who is he — a devil, one of the demons or simply a minor demon? A devil, a demon and a minor demon, he knew and he laughed a crooked, bitter laugh through his pursed lips....

Los Viajeros

Mrs. Wilson's Tales

By: John Dennis Harris

A collection of short stories inspired by Kathlamet myths, along with the original myths (sometimes explicated. The tales, as retold myths, are akin to legend and fairy tales, if perhaps rendered from the subconscious of our Wisconsin pioneer legacy....

From: "The Bird-Headed Woman" On an isolated farm near the Black River lived a farmer and his wife who had recently given birth to a child. She quarreled with him because he raged at her in his religion, accusing her of wrongs she had not done to him, and so she left him and took her child to live in the woods where she had found a shack abandoned by loggers. Her husband, alienated by her, began to preach a profound and compelling gospel of sin and the everlasting hell due to sinners, and people from many farms and towns came around to listen to him. She could hear their clamor from the woods where she lived. Like the sound of a train flagged to a sudden halt in the wilderness. Crashing its clashing cars. Seething with hissing steam. At night through the trees she could see the glaring lights of kerosene lamps moving like aural globules upon the lawn and on the porch of the house where men and women gathered to listen to her husband. She went out in the night to listen, leaving her child in the shack, but feared that her child might cry and so went back. The next night she thought: “I will bathe my child in warm wa...

Prizivanje Katarine : Antropološki triler

By: Dejan Skile Markovic

Usko žanrovski posmatrano, po svojoj formi, Prizivanje Katarine je politički triler, i predstavlja nastavak prethodnog romana D.M.Skileta po imenu Knjiga snimanja. Knjiga snimanja govorila je o ratnim profiterima i zaveri u najvišim krugovima srpske politike, o sprezi politike i kriminala, dok se u Prizivanju Katarine osim sa ovom neizbežnom spregom takođe susrećemo sa jednim drugačijim, okultnim, Beogradom, sa pravim stranim plaćenicima i pravim revolucionarima, sa nenapisanom srpskom istorijom, i sa sasvim originalnom verzijom najvećeg srpskog ratničkog mita.. Naime, ratnički mitovi često određuju i usmeravaju narode: Englezima puno znači mit o Svetom gralu, Nemcima mit o Nibelunzima, što je sasvim bezazleno do trenutka kad se neko seti da mit proglasi za državnu politiku. Tada po pravilu nastaje nacionalna katastrofa – jedna takva se desila u Hitlerovoj Nemačkoj a druga u Miloševićevoj Srbiji. Kosovske mitomane imamo i danas na političkoj sceni, a nacionalni problem broj jedan i dalje je Kosovo. Ovo nagoni na razmišljanje: zbog čega smo toliko privrženi kosovskom mitu? Koliko u njemu ima činjenica, a koliko je nastajao kao instru...

Ruin

By: Neil Azevedo

Ruin is a tale that is not a tale. It is a microscopic peering into the unpleasant fabric of human sustainability. It is a real person wrought by sabotaging the very nature of storytelling. It is a description of love, that is, the deliberate perversion of it in order to fulfill one's needs, which is to say it is the banal record of everyday life. It is a collection of details that follow the details that preceded it in A Book of Nightmares. It is not a happy book. It is full of elegiac contemplation on suffering, helplessness, holiness and unrelenting sexual isolation. It is blunt and graphic and painfully beautiful. It has little plot, and no punctuation, and might, just might, be the poetry for which America has been unconsciously waiting....

there is only love in its various forms and manifestations and by it we either see or we do not see it has been eight years since my last report I am home again if this house can be said to have been a home to me or rather if it can still so be called many years have scampered in and eaten away at what I remember was a modest structure with a mild economical luster ......

A Visit to the Cinema

By: Vougar Aslanov

The most interesting and important event for the boys of the old, already semi-derelict school of the small town was going to the movies and the following discussion of the new film. But most had rarely the opportunity to go to the cinema and everyone who was lucky to see a new film retold for days again and again the contents until all the others knew the whole movie by heart without seeing it themselves. Especially the younger pupils lacked the money, but even the older ones had often not enough to by a ticket. Because for a ticket one had to pay twenty kopeks, otherwise one could not enter the cinema....

The Milkman

By: Vougar Aslanov

The book keeper of the hospital of a small provincial town came one day home very tired. He had not the least desire to have dinner and so he decided to lay down at once and to sleep. In recent years it often happened, that he, after coming home in the evening, had dinner and immediately went to bed without a word to his already grown up children or his wife. She became more and more grumpy in view of his seclusion. He only wanted to sleep, to sleep soundly till daybreak of the next and probably again undesirably day which he always impatiently anticipated, only to immerse again in his coma. For any reason he remembered this evening his childhood in a state between vigil and slumber....
