    Here is a grotesque and carnivalesque collection of exuberant, fantastical stories that takes us from the ancient world through to the European Renaissance. At the heart of these tall tales are the giant Gargantua and his equally seismic son, Pantagruel. Containing magical adventures, maniacal punning, slapstick humor, erudite allusions, and just about any bodily function one can think of, here is quite possibly the zaniest, most risqué book ever written.

    Les Misérables is set in Paris after the French Revolution. In the sewers and backstreets, we encounter "the wolf-like tread of crime", and assassination for a few sous is all in a day's work. We weep with the unlucky and heart-broken Fantine, and we exult with the heroic revolutionaries of the barricades; but above all we thrill to the steadfast courage and nobility of soul of ex-convict Jean Valjean, always in danger from the relentless pursuit of the diabolical Inspector Javert.

    In the grotesque bell-ringer Quasimodo, Victor Hugo created one of the most vivid characters in classic fiction.

They contained writings proving our ancestral myths and lore are actually rooted in the history and culture of a pre-glacial utopian civilization. Zandernatis - Predestination sets the scene and describes the opening of the most fascinating story contained in these texts: "The Song of Gorin", an epic poem describing what really led up to the fall of man in Paradise.
