Standard eBooks just released an eBook of Metropolis. It's free & legal.

Set in a futuristic dystopian city, Metropolis revolves around the stark divide between the affluent ruling class, who reside in luxurious skyscrapers above ground, and the oppressed working class laboring in dismal conditions below. The city is run by the powerful Joh Fredersen, who oversees the vast industrial complex that sustains the city. The plot takes a dramatic turn when Joh Fredersen’s son, Freder, discovers the harsh reality of the workers’ plight and becomes determined to bridge the gap between the two classes.

As Freder delves deeper into the city’s secrets, he encounters Maria, a compassionate woman advocating for workers’ rights. The plot thickens as the city faces the impending threat of rebellion from the oppressed laborers. Joh Fredersen, driven by his desire to maintain control, enlists the help of the brilliant scientist Rotwang to develop a humanoid robot with Maria’s likeness. The robot is intended to manipulate and control the workers, escalating tensions and leading to a dramatic climax that explores themes of class struggle, technology, and the consequences of unchecked industrialization.

Metropolis was first serialized in the German magazine Das illustrierte Blatt in 1926 and published as a book by August Scherl Verlag that same year. Von Harbau also wrote the screenplay for the groundbreaking film of the same name directed by her husband, Fritz Lang. Both the novel and the film were developed simultaneously, with the screenplay closely following the narrative of the novel.

Slightly #noire #shortstory collections for readers who enjoy the inevitability of the Greek tragedy, but want some modern technical details of how a bad act can lead to a gruesome end. They are kindred spirits to "The Monkey's Paw" and "Final Destination" - a little bit Roald Dahl, a hint of Hitchcock, and a sprinkle of a coroner's report.

🇫🇷 🇨🇦 NEBULAR Recueil 15: L ’Alliance de Clebs
Épisodes 59 à 61
Avant-Propos: 10 juillet 2128
Quelques jours se sont écoulés depuis la rencontre avec l’Ambassadrice de Neurotim, et la renaissance inquiétante de Maya Ivanova en tant que clone créé par O’zeris et conditionné par l’ennemi inconnu venu d’Andromède a choqué tous les responsables de l’Union Solaire. Ce qui a été jusqu’à présent négligé au milieu de la confusion générale est l’éloignement du Génorant de son antique façon de faire. Si le géant à la peau verdâtre se voit déjà dans le rôle de futur régent de la Voie Lactée une fois l’Humanité éteinte, il semblerait que l’Ambassadrice se contente de propos plus modérés, montrant sa confiance en indiquant qu’un évènement dévastateur pour la galaxie se produira bientôt.
Les choses demeurent cependant peu claires puisque personne ne sait s’il s’agit là d’une ruse visant à déstabiliser un peu plus la situation en semant la confusion parmi les responsables de l’Union, un consensus existant néanmoins au niveau des états-majors sur le fait que, en aucun cas, Neurotim ne peut être considéré comme un interlocuteur digne de confiance.
Magda Arkroïd, qui pour sa part n’est au courant de rien de tout cela, s’impose une mission qui la touche par son côté émotionnel, et qui la mènera aux limites de ce qu’elle pourra supporter. Ce n’est pas la Guerre Éternelle qui la fait bouger, mais avant tout, ses craintes concernant son père et tous ses chers compagnons. Durant ces tristes jours, Amura sera son soutien, sa conseillère et son amie, tandis que durant sa quête des Archives de l’Éternité, elle découvrira que sa mission de sauvetage la ramènera inévitablement à une époque où d’autres pouvoirs que la Fraternité Galactique régnaient sur la Voie Lactée, l’un d’entre eux étant l ’Alliance de Clebs.

Think you're tough? If you’re not pounding frosty pints of Cock Ale, think again, wimp. 🍺

Cock Ale was a type of beer fermented with the bones and meat of a rooster, along with spices and other aromatics for a little kick. 🐔

A recipe card for Cock Ale. Morgan, a green oval, wears a hat from the 1600s and stomps a rooster down into a beer barrel. Illustrated ingredients are listed.

Copy reads:
Cock Ale
England, circa 1670s CE

    8 gallons ale
    1 large cock
    2 qts. sack
    1 lb. dates
    4 lbs. raisins
    2 nutmegs
    2 cloves
    4 flakes mace

    Take one large cock; the older the better.
    Properly caw and gut the bird.
    Grind the cock down with a mortar, making sure to split the bones. If you are using a live cock, skip these first steps and proceed to steps below.
    Place cock in a canvas bag, along with your raisins, nutmeg, cloves, mace, and dates.
    Set aside two quarts of the finest sack (fortified wine).
    Take eight gallons of partially-fermented ale and pour into a 10-gallon cask.
    Lower the cock bag, add your sack into the cask and seal.
    When fermentation is complete, unseal cask, remove cock bag and strain ale to remove particulates.
    Bottle and serve. Drink to absorb the characteristics of a cock.

After Oli goes through a portal into the Forgotten Forest, her brother is left behind to answer to the Steward of the Limmikin Throne. And as she makes her way through the strange new world and beyond, she discovers new truths about her family—including the existence of a long lost sibling. Once reunited in their own realm, the Locklears make a pact to find out what their parents have been hiding from them.

Meanwhile, other players are moving across the board. Evienne and Merys worry what it means that they can't divine any possible futures in their realm. Beth, an Ageless vigilante is in town seeking answers. An Unseelie spy has infiltrated the Pack. Then there's the return of an old friend—or enemy, depending on your point of view. In secret, Veda practices with her powers with varying results, and Harper begins to see things she shouldn't.

With new allies and foes on both sides, it's a race to find the Four Treasures of the Tuatha Dé Danann. If Oli and the Pack can get their hands on all of them, they may just have a chance at stopping the walls between realities from breaking down. And as the Outcrossed untangle their own pasts, the Shadow Queen is readying her forces for an invasion, and she's enlisted the help of a very old enemy who has no other choice but to take up her quest. But when the wolf moon rises over Birch Hollow, they'll all find out who is truly in control of the fate of the multiverse.
