Talking of which, Henry James has cured more insomniacs than any writer living or dead. The Turn of the Screw is the James work I know best: I got as far as page seven before slipping into a coma. James offers no such assurance. His spooling subclauses spread out and multiply like deadly germs breeding under a microscope. The story concerns a dim, nervous governess arriving at an ugly pile with pointy turrets and spooky casements.
vortexsport.ru/wp-content/245/1496.php We soon learn that the previous governess and her lover died in mysterious circumstances and their ghosts keep popping up all over the place, in the window frame, on the roof, under the bed-sheets, in the window frame again. The deal appears to be that the producer reserves the right to inflict two forms of unpleasantness on you. Hard to call this entertainment.
Two baths full of water. One scalding, one freezing. Jump in and see which is which. Jolts to the nervous system teach you nothing other than that your reflexes are functioning.
The animal, rather than the human, is summoned forth. The total effect of the show could be reproduced by usherettes touching random play-goers with cattle prods.
The absence of emotional or psychological interest holds for the tepid, twitchy governess too. Beautiful Anna Madeley has a striking face, full of sensitivity and ruthlessness, and she should be stretching herself with Lady Macbeth rather than dragging around in a boring old skirt playing this awkward convergence of neurosis and bafflement.

Fister told his sister that he sold six silk sheets to six shieks. Becoming by Bryan Mora Short - A teenage boy struggles between what he feels and what society permits. Which, granted, is odd, but not the sort of oddness the Captain told me to watch for. Nick of Time by Richard D. Now these snakes were in attack formation, acting weird, like something out of a science fiction movie. He is wearing a green suit coat, a clean white shirt, and baggy Levis. The conversation takes on a disturbing character when one of them seems to know a lot more about the other than he let on.
