It is a Conte de fées of Zoë on a promenade through Hookland (England), Mâcon (France), and Bucarest (Romania) in 1913.

Interlude: France, 1913 — The Melancholia influent had passed and those who would set intrigues from Orbis paradisiacus were silenced; the arrangements of Change originating in 1871 were concluded by those of Orbis limbus; and, so it was that Life continued as before in Praesentis vagus as Humanity waxed obsolescent by Man’s contrived magnificence and mores.

Jewel-Less Crown : Saga of Life

By: BS Murthy

It's perilous penning this blurb. It's fine when man is modest about his work. It even affords him the aura of an invisible crown! But what about his work? Were it an art or craft, it is there for all to see. What of a literary work of an unheralded author? Well, lauding the same might raise one's eyebrows. Failing to praise wouldn't make a 'jewel-less crown' either! Why not see, if this is the great Indian novel. This is the story of the rise and fall of...

Party Gone Sour That New Year's Eve, all the nouveau riche of New Delhi seemed to have gathered at the Misty Nest in their ubiquitous wear. While women wore designer dresses, men turned up in safari suits. Hosting them at their grand dwelling in the Defense Colony were the Gautams, Prabhu and Sneha. By the time the last guest was hugged in welcome, Gautam’s silk kurta and Sneha’s mink coat were truly crumpled. Augmenting the warmth of their bonhomie was the Glenfiddic...

Ramaiah’s Family That winter night in the mid-seventies, the Janata Express was racing rhythmically on its tracks towards the coast of Andhra Pradesh. As its headlight pierced the darkness of the fertile plains, the driver honked the horn as though to awake the sleepy environs to the spectacle of the speeding train. On that, in the S-3, were the Ramaiahs with their nine year-old daughter Roopa. Earlier, from Ramavaram, it was in the nick of time that Ramaiah took Janak...

Glaring Shadow : A Stream of Consciousness Novel

By: BS Murthy

In a stream of consciousness mode 'Glaring Shadow' is the self-account of the life and times of a man, who liquidates his immense wealth only to consign it to the flames. The agony and ecstasy of his life as he makes it mundanely big, even as he loses his soul, only to regain it when tragedy strikes him leaves one to ponder over the meaning of success in life. This philosophical ‘novel of a memoir’ makes a compelling read that is conducive for contemplation about...

Glaring Shadow He had the soul of our times, and is the namesake of many. He tamed success by the scruff of its neck, only to fuel envy in our neighborhood. When it seemed there was no stopping him, fate dealt him a deadly blow in his early sixties. Besides losing his wife, son and daughter-in-law with their children in that fatal road mishap, he found his leg mangled in the debris of that Ferrari. The intensity of the pity all felt for him seemed to match the magnitud...

Crossing the Mirage : Passing Through Youth

By: BS Murthy

If passing through youth was like crossing the mirage of life for Chandra and Nithya, it proved to be chasing the mirage of love for Sathya and Prema though for plain Vasavi, Chandra's pitiable sibling, it was the end of the road. As life brings Chandra, who suffers from an inferiority complex for his perceived ugliness, and Nithya, who was bogged down being jilted by Vasu, together, they script their fate of fulfillment. And as poetic justice would have it, Sathya, wh...

Shackles on Psyche Youth is the mirror that tends us to the reality of our looks. The reflections of our visages that insensibly get implanted in our subconscious lend shape to our psyche to define the course of our life. This is the saga of Chandra’s chequered life that mirrors this phenomenon in myriad ways. As perceived by the deprived, he had a fortunate birth. Yadagiri, his father, was the prominent pearl merchant in Hyderabad - Deccan, the seat of the Nizam’s...

În vizită la negustorul de iluzii: Ecourile amintirilor

By: Octavian Nicolae Lupu

Simplitatea aparentă a scrierii derivă din capacitatea de a transmite cât mai fidel și mai autentic ceea ce simți în relație cu experiența vieții. Cu precizia unui meșteșugar medieval, impresiile se aștern pe portativul sentimentelor ce răzbat cu fiecare notă interpretată sub bagheta timpului. Și astfel iau naștere forme pline de farmec ce răzbat din orizontul interior al sufletului ca reflectare a concretului și imaginarului realității. De aceea, actul scrierii are vale...

Nu este simplu să scrii despre tine și să întocmești o prezentare care să nu semene cu un CV bun de trimis la firme, dar impersonal în a comunica trăirile lăuntrice și motivația ascunsă a sufletului în dorința de a transmite un mesaj plin de substanță potențialilor cititori. Cu toate acestea, merită să spun câteva cuvinte despre experiența pe care am acumulat-o în ce privește scrisul, mai ales că izvorul gândurilor exprimate sub formă de articole, broșuri sau emisiuni ra...

Perdóneme,Sr. Eminencia

By: Valentino Valentino

Un crítico literario se burla de un escritor. Pero luego descubre que no todo es literatura.

Era yo todavía muy joven e inseguro, pero engreído y ambicioso. Comenzaba a escribir y mis cuentos eran –siendo sincero aún lo son– francamente ridículos y sensibleros; sin embargo, para mí, en mi anublada cabeza eran los mejores del mundo; ya existía la internet, por cierto, y los publicaba de manera anónima como recién salidos del horno con un eficiente copy-paste de Word a la página web. Por los números que acumulaba, me creía un genio. Recuerdo que había llegado p...

El suicidio de Brayan Hernández Ulele

By: Valentino Valentino

Genial cuento de Valentino que nos urde una trama donde un joven director teatral decide llevar el surrealismo a la vida real. Las consecuencias resultan ser catastróficas.

–Quiero que sea auténtico –dijo Lucas, el director del teatro “Komoidía”, a su querido amigo Otoniel que esculcaba el teléfono sin prestarle mucha atención. Lucas, con cierto enfado, dio unos cuantos pasitos hacia delante, bien medidos, evitando, sobre todo, pisar las surcos grises que cuadriculaban la cerámica; levantó su lindo culito y le echó una mirada de fuego a su productor creativo. Siguió: –Sabes, me estoy cansando de eso que los americanos llaman fake news, de...
