Article purportedly by Jules Verne, but probably by his son. According to the editor's note at the beginning: "In the Year 2889_ was first published in the _Forum_, February, 1889; p. 262. It was published in France the next year. Although published under the name of Jules Verne, it is now believed to be chiefly if not entirely the work of Jules' son, Michel Verne. In any event, many of the topics in the article echo Verne's ideas."

Warren is a student from a very poor family from the suburbs of Boston. He is taking the SAT exams that may put him in Harvard. He needs 780 in his math scores to make it. If he gets anything less than 780, he will lose full scholarship and won’t get into Harvard which is something he dreamt all of his life. Question 28 is confusing him. He is between A and D. He is not sure. He is very nervous and sweating. Time is running out! He ticks D: All of the above. Was he right, or wrong? What happens next?

Persuasion is the last novel fully completed by Jane Austen during her own life. It was published posthumously in 1818, one year after her death. It is a story concerning the courtship and marriage of a young woman, Anne Elliot, being raised by a widowed father while under the persuasive influence of an aristocratic friend and neighbor of the family. Austen completed the novel before commencing upon another new novel titled Sanditon of which she completed only the initial opening chapters. Persuasion illustrates a central theme which reflects upon the largely ill-effects exerted upon Anne Elliot when she was young and impressionable, and still excessively sensitive to the advice of others.

A stupid tale inspired by a chance encounter I had with the only ex I ever loved. From both points of view. Purely fictional, purely wishful thinking, purely stupid. To make things more difficult for me, I started in the middle, because it's the strongest part (for me)

This isn't your typical ancient greek myth. This is real life in mount Olympus.

This short story comes from a dusted drawer located at the desk of Daphne, a down-to earth journalist who lives in a small town in the States. Her life turns upside down when one day she decides to visit the Natural History Museum in order to cover a story for the new weekly issue. A tiny click from her camera is the trigger for the plot to begin unraveling in front of her stunned eyes. A sweet mixture of ancient greek mythology and real life as we know it creates multiplte layers of reading in this retelling of goddess Diana's myth, or else, goddess Artemis. Disclaimer: everything in the story is fictitious. Only a few elements relate to the real mythology written in formal scripts.

Gary is a young ambitious broker. He lives in Takoma near Seattle. The weather forecast has shown that hurricane Sandy would hit the NY coast in the next few hours. He grabbed the opportunity. He knew what he did. He bought “Corner Constructions” stocks with all the money in the account he was managing. It was a construction company based in New York. Phil was the owner of a small tavern in New Jersey whose all belongings were lost when the eye of the storm hit his neighbour. The stories in news reports and the tragic figure of Phil, touched the avaricious Gary’s heart and changed his life forever.
