Both of these little books contain three atmospheric short stories, perfect for autumnal evenings. The winner will also get Mary Shelley tea (a lavender and vanilla black tea) from Rosie Lea Tea's Literary Tea Collection (https://www.rosieleatea.co.uk/collections/literary-tea-collection) and a chocolate skull, to really get that spooky atmosphere .   and...   A special treat for a special month. The winner will choose one of the following recent paperback releases from the independent bookshop Big Green Bookshop:       The Wych Elm by Tana French A House of Ghosts by W.C. Ryan Melmoth by Sarah Perry The Familiars by Stacey Halls  The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White   The winner will be chosen via the usual random selection process in one week.

  1. Please, recommend me a book about life, about the everyday life... the path of the lonely man, the outsider. A man searching for himself and his mission / meaning in life ... He is an idealist, a dreamer and dreaming of another, a better world (perfect world). He is out of time (not his), trying to adapt, but does not fit into society, with a deep inner world; For his fall and ... the exit/way out. Perhaps - The Golden Age Syndrome (as "Midnight in Paris" by Woddy Allan). My favorites are "Marten Eden", "Loneliness On The Net" - Janusz L. Wisniewski; and "The Memory Artists" by Jeffrey Moore (the characters: Norval and partly Noel Burun).
  2. Hello, firends! I looking for books about these topics: 1. A man who dares to change, experiences mentally / physically catharsis, metamorphosis, achieves his dream, who parts with his sorry existence, stands up against himself, against the world ... motivating and inspiring! (my favorites: Marten Eden, The way of the peaceful warrior, The Fountainhead, Atlas Shrugged) 1.1 Or book about overcoming severe physical problem. 2. The life of a lonesome man; (before, now, after); (story takes place in present day - 1950-2000) 3. Sci-fi - isolated, self-sustaining society, securing its own resources; 3.1 - A scientist, an inventor or a team of scientists, or actions taking place at a laboratory. 4. Relationship, affair between a young man and a mature woman.
