John Galsworthy (1867-1933) was an English novelist and playwright. One of his notable works is the novel Beyond. Together with his heroes the author goes to spheres of unrestrained feelings. Love is depicted as an all consuming power, before which man is powerless.
Thomas Love Peacock (1785-1866) was an English novelist, poet, and official of the East India Company. Peacocks retelling of the legend of Robin Hood is as fresh today as it was when he penned it, nearly two hundred years ago. Here are all the heroes and villains we know and love, recast by a keen Victorian wit Robin Hood and Maid Marian; Friar Tuck, Little John, and Richard the Lionhearted; Prince John and the Sheriff of Nottingham. The heroes are heroic and just a little self-serving, though generous the villains are villainous. The tale is told as keenly as it can be.

My guest was lying sprawled on his back. There was a knife through his heart which skewered him to the floor. From that moment Richard Hannays own life is under threat. A few days before, the dead man had told him of a political assassination that was shortly to take place in London and which would have terrible repercussions around the world. In mortal danger he sought refuge in Hannays flat. Now he had been murdered and Hannay had to move quickly if he was not to suffer the same fate. Pursued by both police and killers he heads for Scotland. There, among the Scottish moors, a deadly game of cat and mouse ensues, and Hannay needs all his resourcefulness and courage to stay one step ahead. His only hope is to persuade someone in the British Government of the impending danger. But will he be able to get to them in time and save the country from certain ruin?
