L. L. Samson

Linus and Julia Easterday find themselves in the strangest situations. Repeatedly. And it’s their own fault. “How many other kids our age have Natty Bumpo living in their attic?” Linus complains. And yet, how many other twelve-year-olds know Quasimodo and the Count of Monte Cristo personally? It all began when Linus and Julia, fraternal twins, moved in with their Aunt Portia and Uncle Augustus after their lepidopterologist parents journeyed to the newly discovered island of Stu (named after it’s discoverer, Stu Cranston, of Hohocus, New Jersey) for at least five years to study never-before-seen butterflies. Aunt Portia and Uncle Augustus Sandwich run an antiquarian bookshop. Seven Hills Rare Books attracts customers as eccentric as its owners. (If Aunt Portia, who wears a tiara in her fuzzy, apricot colored hair, thick glasses and cowboy boots, can be considered eccentric. We won’t get into Uncle Augustus. He does, however, drink a lot of tea, eat a lot of sandwiches, and tends to talk with Jesus at any time – even if you happen to be standing in front of him.) Seven Hills, housed in a three story stone townhouse, was once a magic shop owned by second-rate magician Harvey Blackstone. What most people who inhabited Rickshaw Street didn’t know was that behind the dusty front window arranged with faded top hats, dusty wands, and scattered cards, Harvey Blackstone conjured up something truly magical. So magical he disappeared one night. About a month after the children moved in with their relatives, they discovered Harvey’s magic laboratory through a hidden door in the closet of the back bedroom of the third floor. A circle had been burned into the middle of the scarred wooden floor. As it happened, Julia decided to read up there one night when she couldn’t sleep. She’d reclined on the couch and fell asleep while reading her Bible and occasionally sneaking a peek at a novel. As happens sometimes, her arm flopped to the side and her book, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, dropped onto the floor. At 12:03 a.m., the circle began to glow, then pop and hiss and spark like fireworks. Julia woke with a start. At 12:05 a.m. the sparks settled down and there sat Quasimodo and my goodness, he wasn’t happy at all. Or perhaps he was simply scared to death as he had not yet gotten out of his bell tower and suddenly, poof, there he is in the twenty-first century. How long the visitor stays depends on how fast Julia can read the book, cover to cover. If it’s a doozie like Les Miserables, matters can get quite sticky, and believe you me even the shorter books give the twins a great deal of trouble. Imagine having the Frankenstein monster around even for just a day. The bulk of the story is the children’s: how they deal with a raging sea captain in present day, how they manage to get a hunchbacked recluse into the sunshine or a babbling Danish prince to the psychiatrist – and what lessons they take into life.

Victor Hugo

The Hunchback of Notre Dame (French: Notre-Dame de Paris, "Our Lady of Paris") is a novel by Victor Hugo published in 1831. The French title refers to the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, on which the story is focused, and it is also a metaphor for Esmeralda, who is the center of the human drama within the story. The story begins on Epiphany (6 January), 1482, the day of the Feast of Fools in Paris, France. Quasimodo, a deformed hunchback who is the bell-ringer of Notre Dame, is introduced by his crowning as the Pope of Fools. Esmeralda, a beautiful Gypsy with a kind and generous heart, captures the hearts of many men, including those of Captain Phoebus and Pierre Gringoire, a poor street poet, but especially those of Quasimodo and his adoptive father, Claude Frollo, the Archdeacon of Notre Dame... This e-book presents the classic and unabridged translation by Isabel F. Hapgood, carefully formatted and with a detailed table of contents.

Philip McIlnay

A true story… When God tells a psychologist he must run for president to prevent the murder of millions of patients and save Western Civilization As We Know It, he writes this book as his campaign autobiography. The psychologist is a political liberal, and a theological skeptic who does not believe in God, but they talk. The only catch is the doctor is locked up in his own mental hospital, diagnosed with mania and psychosis. In the lunatic asylum, the Mad-Doctor lives with fellow inmates Wild Bill (Buckley) and Lady Bird (Johnson). His closest confidants are George Berkeley (the Bishop), Soren Kierkegaard (the Hunchback), and the likes of Kant, Hume, Voltaire, Dorothy Parker, Mahalia Jackson, and Martin Luther. Asylum visitors include Descartes, Abelard, Aristotle, Plato, Elmer Gantry, and Ambrose Bierce. Among others, communications are received from Winston Churchill, Dr. Thomas More, William Jennings Bryan, Mark Twain, Aaron Burr, Michael Servetus, Eleanor of Aquitaine, and the prophet Ezekiel. One of Mad-Doc's six ex-wives, the mother of his children, volunteers to lead his escape team from the asylum, where he's being held as a political prisoner. Elvis Presley and Wilt Chamberlain are his wingmen. Talking regularly with God, he will learn answers to the major questions that have plagued theologians throughout history. He will eventually benefit from the tutelage of Jerry Lee Lewis, and go steady with Janis Joplin. By turns, comic and irreverent, poignant and affectionate, this memoir takes us inside the author's mind to show manic-depression and psychosis happening in real time. Along this wild ride, the writer authoritatively enlightens and entertains audiences on the subjects of mental illness, health care, politics, philosophy, and religion. The Mad-Doctor spares no one, least of all himself, as he skewers liberal and conservative, believer and non-believer, alike. The author understands that health care economics are at the heart of this country's future well-being. And he recognizes that regardless of whether Democratic or Republican Party reform plans carry the day, health care in America is headed for the crapper. While there is still time to pull back from the brink, Mad-Doc can begin a run for president as an authentic bipolar candidate committed to healing a nation in which the center did not hold. He is also in a unique position to bridge religious divides as the son of a Baptist minister who can claim, “Some of my best wives have been Catholics—and don't forget the Episcopalian, Mormon, and Church of the Brethren girls.” In a tone reminiscent of Hunter S. Thompson and Walker Percy, The Bishop, The Hunchback, And The Lunatic: The Autobiography of a Mad-Doctor By an Apostate Son of a Baptist While Western Civilization As We Know It Hangs in the Balance is a brilliant satire full of remarkable candor and ribald humor. Philip McIlnay holds a PhD in clinical psychology, MA in political science, and BA in philosophy. He is a former think-tanker, management consultant, deputy superintendent of Ann Arbor Public Schools, and Peace Corps volunteer. Dr. McIlnay is board-certified in psychopharmacology, child and adolescent psychology, serious mental illness, and forensic psychology. He specializes in depression, manic-depression, psychosis, dissociative identity, chemical dependency, and post-traumatic stress disorder. He's been a clinical director, a doctor, and a patient in mental hospitals. He currently has a psychotherapy practice in Los Angeles.
