Relativamente ampia raccolta di racconti brevi, opera prima, "24 Racconti" è il frutto pretenzioso dell'attività giovanile dell'autore, focalizzata in particolare sui temi dell'inettitudine alla vita e all' amore, l'incomunicabilità, la solitudine, i meccanismi di repressione socio-individuale, l'inesorabilità della morte e il significato dell'immortalità. Da segnalare, fra gli altri, due testi: "Davanti a una tela di Rembrandt", che indaga il significato della legge e, in senso più ampio, dell'esistenza dell' individuo nel contesto dei suoi simili, e "L'eden", la storia di un'iniziazione e, forse, di una caduta. Altri racconti esemplari: "Il postulante", "Il carceriere" e "Indiani".

Mary, Queen of Scots, is well-known to history for her tragic life and brutal death, so it is not surprising that her ghost reputedly haunts more sites than any other ghost in the world.
There are stories of more than 20 sites being visited by Mary's spirit, from the place of her birth and the castles she visited as queen of Scots, to the prisons in England where she was held captive, and the stairs she descended at Fotheringhay on the day of her execution.
This lavishly illustrated book covers Mary's life along with supernatural stories of her contemporaries, including two of her husbands, her mother, and the location of her last stand in Scotland. 16 pages of photos. "An informative and comprehensive travel guide for the historically and supernaturally curious."--Publishers Weekly, Nov. 4, 2013
