Summary: Once upon a time there was a girl named Octavia and a boy named William. They were looking for roman ruins in the woods but they never found any because they were nowhere near Rome. What they did find was a sunken well. For over a year it was their secret place and they played there every day. They never showed it to anyone else. William told all of his secrets to Octavia near that well, and when they were told he would take a stone and they would each put it in their mouths. William said that now the secret was held in the stone. William would throw the stone down the well. One day, when the well was full of secrets, William fell in.

Summary:’It was an object of catastrophic beauty. A little lopsided, perhaps, but the asymmetry somehow added to its wretched charm. It was the moment that every artist fears, when he steps back from his work and sees for the first time what he has wrought.’ 16 Horror shorts by Melinda Selmys.

Publisher: Vulgata

Summary: In these philosophical dialogues, questions of love, sex, death and retribution are explored by a group of characters representing a wide diversity and experience. Unlike many books with a dialogue format, this one doesn’t have a Socrates character who is always right. Each character brings some aspect of truth to the table and it is only through a clash of ideas and insights that they approach a solution to the problems they confront.
