The publication of the novel was well-received by the public and a second edition was published in 1816 by John Murray still within Austen's lifetime. Murray then went on to also publish Austen's fourth novel Emma which was Austen's last published novel still within the author's lifetime.

A scholar and explorer, Dr. Samuel Ferguson, accompanied by his manservant Joe and his friend professional hunter Richard "Dick" Kennedy, sets out to travel across the African continent — still not fully explored — with the help of a balloon filled with hydrogen. He has invented a mechanism that, by eliminating the need to release gas or throw ballast overboard to control his altitude, allows very long trips to be taken. This voyage is meant to link together the voyages of Sir Richard Burton and John Hanning Speke in East Africa with those of Heinrich Barth in the regions of the Sahara and Chad. The trip begins in Zanzibar on the east coast, and passes across Lake Victoria, Lake Chad, Agadez, Timbuktu, Djenné and Ségou to St Louis in modern-day Senegal on the west coast. The book describes the unknown interior of Africa near modern-day Central African Republic as a desert, when it is actually savanna.

Aenar MacVenner was a veteran scout of the Stormwind's Lions detachment, until he woke up grumpy and annoyed as an undead. Now, forced to serve under the banner of the forsaken Queen, Aenar realises the world of the (un)dead is not much of his taste. This is a World of Warcraft related story from a first person perspective. It can be read from those who have not played the game and do not know the lore as there is not a connection of Aenar's story with the basic plot of the game.

The world puts us in a box. How we should think, how to act, when to feel bad.

The world tells us how to act. What to think, how to feel, when to be sorry, how to talk and when to keep things to ourselves. In a box, so to speak. There are many reactions and though I do not condone self-destructive methods, but Reality is Real.

The stories in news reports and the tragic figure of Phil, touched the avaricious Gary’s heart and changed his life forever.

Six friends get together in a pub for some drinks. Each and everyone of them has a different job but the one thing they have in common is their daily torturing by their wives. Every chapter is a funny naration of the things that happen to them. Nick, lawyer, 43 years old. Peet, cop, 40 years old. Jim, pharmaceutical sales man, 50 years old. George, retired teacher, 70 years old. Chris, 27 years old mathematician. Mike, taxi driver 55 years old. A light comedy for all ages of how our lovely wives make our lives a cute nightmare. What kind of funny situations are our characters thrown into every day?
