De twee zullen niet alleen moeten vechten om in leven te blijven, maar ook om vrij te blijven tijdens de zogenaamde "Gouden Eeuw" van de piraterij. Edward ontdekt ook dat de helft van het schip dat hij kocht op slot zit. In plaats van sleutels, vinden ze raadsels en aanwijzingen achtergelaten door de vorige eigenaar. Edward en zijn bemanning moeten de raadsels oplossen, de aanwijzingen volgen, en een spel om leven en dood onder ogen zien voordat ze de sleutels van de rest van het schip kunnen claimen. En al die tijd ademt een zekere marine-kapitein in hun nek en richt zich op hun leven. Zullen Edward en Henry het leven omarmen dat hen is opgedrongen, of zullen ze tegen de rotsen van hun ongeluk botsen? Zie hoe de piraat Zwartbaard de plaag van de Caribische Zee en daarbuiten is geworden, en volg hem op zijn avonturen vol piraten, kapers en alles daartussenin in De reizen op de Queen Anne's Revenge!

The Zurau Aphorisms of Franz Kafka

by Franz Kafka

The essential philosophical writings of one of the twentieth century's most influential writers are now gathered into a single volume with an introduction and afterword by the celebrated writer and publisher Roberto Calasso. Illness set him free to write a series of philosophical fragments: some narratives, some single images, some parables. These "aphorisms" appeared, sometimes with a few words changed, in other writings--some of them as posthumous fragments published only after Kafka's death in 1924. While working on K., his major book on Kafka, in the Bodleian Library, Roberto Calasso realized that the Zürau aphorisms, each written on a separate slip of very thin paper, numbered but unbound, represented something unique in Kafka's opus--a work whose form he had created simultaneously with its content.The notebooks, freshly translated and laid out as Kafka had intended, are a distillation of Kafka at his most powerful and enigmatic. This lost jewel provides the reader with a fresh perspective on the collective work of a genius.

Zundel's Exit

by Michael Hoffman Markus Werner

Scrounged from his notebooks and hearsay, this is the story of a schoolteacher named Konrad Zündel: a philosopher, a wanna-be writer; scattered, self-conscious, glum, anxious, unlucky, discontent . . . At the end of his rope, he decides to flee his workaday life at all costs, only to find escape always a little beyond his reach. First his tooth falls out in the sight of other travelers, then he finds a severed finger in a restroom on a train. In fact, Zündel seems on the verge of falling to bits, as do his words, thoughts, wife, and world--will there be anything left, and anyone to hold the pieces? Zündel's Exit is a Chaplinesque comedy of disintegration, never knowing if it's coming or going.
