The Star : and Excerpt from The Exile of Gaspar: and excerpt from ...

By: E. S. Kraay, Mr.;

The conclusion of Chapter Two from my upcoming novel "The Exile of Gaspar." Expect publication late 2013.

The night is very clear and unusually cold. We are so near to the star that its light banishes the darkness that tries futilely to extinguish it. A small village twinkles in the foothills to our east. The cry of a lost sheep cuts the night like a blade and a shepherd boy not much younger than I am scampers across the path before us to bring the lamb back to its fold. “Peace to you, brother shepherd,” Melchior calls out. “Can you tell me the name of that village?” T...

By: Edoardo Rubini

In the sixteenth century the N.H. Marin Sanudo said that the Venetian Republic would last forever, forever and ever. His opinion was not isolated, but a widespread belief. Even this shows how our fathers were distant from the common mentality of today. Who would ever say, these days, that a state will last forever? La Serenissima lasted fourteen centuries, but the self-government of the Venetian people since time immemorial. The objective fact is impressive. Even more s...
