Andrei Makine's The Woman Who Waited and The Earth and Sky of Jacques Dorme
Angela Carter's Shaking a Leg and Burning Your Boats
H.G. Wells' Star Begotten
Robert Coover's Pricksongs and Descants
Rudyard Kipling's The Phantom Rickshaw and Other Stories
Complete Works and Letters of Charles Lamb
The Famous Stories of Joseph Conrad
Tessa Hadley's Sunstroke and Other Stories
D.H. Lawrence's The Rainbow and Women in Love
Stephenie Meyer's Twilight
