Estratto: ... Qua, qua, qua, qua; io sono medico, io guarisco la gente da tutti i mali e da tutte le pazzie, fuori che da quella d'amore. Trotona sbalordita da questo portento non veduto mai in vita sua, grido sagrando come un vetturino: --Affennenio! che bel pasticcio. Lo voglio per me. Qua, Viso-sudicio: quanto ne chiedi?--Il solito prezzo, --ella disse--dormire nella sala degli Echi, e nient'altro.--Sta bene; e ti voglio dar per giunta anche questa moneta--disse Trotona, fuor di se dall'allegrezza di avere avuto il pasticcio. Fiorina se ne va via ringraziando, tutta contenta per la speranza che questa volta il Re avrebbe sentita la sua voce. Appena venne la notte, ella si fece condurre nella sala degli Echi, colla passione che la struggeva, che il cameriere mantenesse la parola e che, invece di dare al Re il solito oppio, gli mettesse innanzi qualche altra bevanda da tenerlo desto; quando pote figurarsi che tutti dormissero, ella ricomincio i sui pietosi lamenti: --A quanto pericolo non sono io andata incontro, --ella diceva--per venirti a cercare, mentre tu mi fuggi e vuoi sposare Trotona! Che t'ho io fatto, crudele, per scordarti cosi i tuoi giuramenti? Rammentati almeno qualche volta della tua metamorfosi, del mio amore e dei nostri teneri colloquj!--Ella ripete questi colloquj a uno a uno, e con tanta fedelta di memoria, da far vedere che per lei non c'era altra cosa al mondo, che le fosse piu cara di questi ricordi. Il Re non dormiva punto, e sentiva cosi distintamente la voce di Fiorina e tutte le sue parole, che non sapeva raccapezzarsi da dove venissero: ma il suo cuore, teneramente commosso, gli fece ricordare.

First English Translation GOLDEN DANUBE by Jules Verne ------------------- Take a trip down the GOLDEN DANUBE Jules Verne's "Extraordinary Journeys" often used the travelogue mode, and here the author offers a voyage down the entire length of the Danube, from Germany to the Black Sea. However, rather than the placid "blue" Danube of classical conception, Verne offers one which is golden, in multiple ways. Smugglers are operating along the river, with the police in pursuit, and the hero is a champion fisherman who is abducted and forced to prove his courage.

The Prometheus Books edition is not only the first English translation, but also the first complete publication of Journey Through the Impossible...The inclusion of a very well written introduction by Jean-Michel Margot helped me more fully appreciate the importance and complexity of this work, as did the text of two reviews from 1882...This is a work for Verne afficionados, theater buffs or just those who enjoy a good story. Take a Journey Through the Impossible and you might see another side of the Father of Science Fiction.- WSFA Journal (Washington Science Fiction Association)Translated by Edward BaxterIntroduction by Jean-Michel Margot,President of the North American Jules Verne SocietyOriginal Artwork by Roger LeyonmarkJules Verne, the most translated novelist in the world and best known for books such as Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Seas and Around the World in Eighty Days, was also a prolific playwright. Journey Through the Impossible, a play of fantasy and science fiction, ran for 97 performances in Paris in 1882 and 1883. In the three acts, the characters go first to the center of the Earth, then under the sea, and finally to the planet Altor. Characters from Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Seas, From the Earth to the Moon, Doctor Ox, and Journey to the Center of the Earth appear again in Journey through the Impossible, including Captain Nemo, President Barbican, Michel Ardan, Doctor Ox, and Professor Lidenbrock.Verne wrote this play in the middle of his life, between his optimistic (science helps humanity and is good) and pessimistic (science is dangerous and bad) works; the play is a vehicle for Verne to ask himself and his readers whether science, technology, and the pursuit of knowledge are good or bad. He used the play to pose questions about life and wisdom that are still important in our time.The script of the play was lost to Verne scholars for almost a century, until the text was discovered in 1978 in the Archives of the Censorship Office of the Third French Republic and was published in French in 1981. The play had many reviews in 1882 and two of them are included here to give the reader insight into how the play was staged in Paris in the second half of the 19th century. Also included are many wonderful illustrations showing set designs for the original play, a page from a lost scene, the original frontispiece, and other interesting details.This is the first complete edition and the first English translation of a surprising work by a popular French novelist whose works continue to delight readers and audiences to this day.

Rudolf Kesselbach, a South African billionaire, is murdered in a Parisian palace. Arsene Lupin is framed for the crime, and must escape from the clutches of the wily M. Lenormand, the head of the French Surete, while looking for the real murderer, an enigmatic figure dressed in black who signs his crimes "L. M." Both Lupin and L. M. also seek to acquire Kesselbach's secret which may completely overthrow the political map of Europe, the key of which is encapsulated into a mysterious cryptogram: 813. 813, written in 1910, is Arsene Lupin's greatest adventure, taking him from the prison of La Sante in Paris to the corridors of the great powers of Europe. Never has Lupin met such a savage and cunning adversary as L. M., or solved such an impenetrable mystery as "813," which defied even Sherlock Holmes' legendary sagacity. Retranslated and published uncut here for the first time, this edition of the novel comes with a new epilog written especially for this book by noted lupinologist Jean-Marc Lofficier which exposes the truth behind Holmes' role in 813."
