    First published in 1949 and praised in the New York Times Book Review as "full of beauty and vigor and bite", A Sand County Almanac combines some of the finest nature writing since Thoreau with an outspoken and highly ethical regard for America's relationship to the land. This classic work remains as relevant today as it was nearly 70 years ago.

    Not since Thoreau took us to Walden Pond has there been such an important work on the natural world. A Sand County Almanac is Aldo Leopold's simple expression of feeling for the environment at his weekend farm along the Wisconsin River. It is an inviting, gentle world - one that is rapidly disappearing.

    This is the best known work of this Austrian writer and poet who based this tale of love, humiliation and obsession largely on his own life and gave the English language the word masochism. A compelling well written story it has inspired and influenced many psychologists, artists, writers and musicians from Thomas Mann to the Velvet Underground and even Freud, since its first publication in 1870.

    If you've ever been curious about where the term "masochism" comes from, you will find it laden in the pages of Leopold von Sacher-Masoch's masterpiece, Venus in Furs, for whom the term was named. Drawn in part from his own life experiences, Sacher-Masoch's novel develops an eroticism unlike any other. The book's protagonist, Severin, is so infatuated and obsessed with the object of his desire, Wanda, that he asks to be her slave. Although hesitant at first, Wanda's treatment of Severin becomes more and more depraved, fueling Severin's own desires for cruelty.

    Still wildly popular today, this collection of ghost stories was first published in 1919. A few of the stories reflect the prejudices and language of the era and would not be considered "politically correct" now but are nonetheless excellent stories. Arthur B. Reeves, an American writer who also wrote screenplays compiled this anthology. His introduction is considered by many to be the definitive explanation of the popularity and diversity of this genre. Turn off the lights and prepare to be thrilled and chilled by this unique assemblage of spooky tales.

    L'amore ha molte sfaccettature, o sfumature, come in un celebre romanzo erotico che racconta una di una relazione amorosa e di possesso assoluto. Allo stesso modo, "Venere in pelliccia" narra una vicenda che affronta gli aspetti più nascosti e patologici dell'amore: la relazione di sottomissione e sudditanza totale di un uomo nei confronti della donna che ama, che diventa la sua padrona.

    Mit seiner 1866 erschienenen Novelle "Venus im Pelz" wurde Leopold von Sacher-Masoch zum Namensgeber für eine sexuelle Leidenschaft, die fortan Masochismus hieß. Der Erotikklassiker thematisiert die Unterwerfungsrituale mit den bekannten Requisiten Pelz, Peitsche und Stiefel und beschreibt die Jagd nach dem Phantom der Lust und die Lust am Schmerz, ja er feiert die erotische Faszination der Grausamkeit.
