You think you know the secret of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. You don't. A perfect jumping-on point for the Afterverse books of Kyle Robert Shultz - spoiler-free; no prior continuity required! Archaeologists are not often consulted by gods. However, Malcolm Blackfire is not a typical archaeologist - he’s also a dragon. So, when the brain of the god Janus is stolen from Thanatos Abbey in the city of Talesend, Malcolm and his assistant Melody Nightingale are summoned by Hades himself to investigate. It doesn’t take long for a dark design to emerge behind the bizarre theft. The mysterious Dr. Henry Jekyll is performing dangerous experiments. A powerful sorcerer named Hyde has suddenly emerged in the Talesend underworld. The answer to the mystery is clear........or is it? Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde are not what they seem. But by the time Malcolm discovers the truth about them, it may be far too late. Note: This book takes place just after The Dark Excalibur, book one of the Blackfire series. It does not contain any spoilers for that story, and can be listened to beforehand. This story is also included in Beaumont and Beasley book four, The Hound of Duville and Other Stories, which continues the storyline of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. 1. Language: English.

Aristotle's assertion that in Greek tragedy, there is no loftier work than Oedipus the King cannot be lightly contradicted. This drama is endued fearfully with nature, as she works against the conscientiousness of measure found in man. Heretofore no translation of this play has been a poem of Sophoclean worthiness and work. The rhythmic stature of this translation runs with the Greek in heat and light. "It is always gratifying, it elevates the human spirit to see one our fellows...set his aim unbelievably high and incredibly hit the mark!" (David Madgalene, bilingual author of I Hear A Journeyman Singing and many other books of verse.) 1. Language: English. Narrator: Alex Hyde-White.

He entered the University of Edinburgh at the age of 17 and studied to be an engineer to follow his father in the family business, however, he soon realized that he was not cut out for that profession. His father agreed to let him study law instead and although Stevenson graduated from the law school, he never practiced law because, by then, he knew he wanted to be a writer.He started writing in his teens, and when he was 16, he wrote "The Pentland Rising", a story based on a historical event, and his father paid for 100 copies to be printed in pamphlet form. He published his first book at the age of 28.Stevenson enjoyed adventure and used every opportunity to travel and that reflects in his fiction. Unfortunately, the main reason he spent a lot of time abroad was his poor health.The novel revolves around an investigation carried out by a London lawyer Gabriel John Utterson concerning the strange relationship between his client - Dr. Jekyll - and Mr. Hyde. The novella had a huge impact on modern culture, so much so, that the phrase “Jekyll and Hyde” became a common way of describing someone's dual nature.Enjoy this timeless classic! 1.
