Provine, Massachusetts, is one of those picturesque New England towns where nothing ever seems to change. At least that is how it has always seemed to Felicity Cramer. So when she brings Paul, her fiance, to Province to meet her family, the last thing she expects is for anything out of the ordinary to occur. Under the sleepy surface of Province lies a devastatingly sinister fate, a fate sealed three hundred years ago when Granny Brind was burned as a witch. Now, the horrifying legacy Granny Brind bequeathed to Province is about to explode with a murderous vengeful power, from which there will be no escape. The Worms elicits the kind of heart-pounding response fans of horror and fantasy fiction crave. The knockout pace of this terrifyingly suspenseful story will leave you gasping for breath. 1.

Seminar paper from the year 2011 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 2,0, University of Paderborn (Institut für Anglistik/Amerikanistik), course: Proseminar American Gothic, language: English, abstract: ´´And much of Madness and more of Sin And Horror the Soul to the Plot.´´ This line taken from Edgar Allan Poe?s poem ?The Conquerer Worm? perfectly describes the essential elements featured in many of Poe?s poems and stories, on which I am about to write in particular. Madness and horror, sins and the ?Imp of the Perverse? - The Evil, which lies within all of us - are popular and frequently recurring motives in Poe?s literary works and thereby create a mood and atmosphere quite dark and nightmarish. The reader is offered a deep glance into the abyss of the human mind and psyche. In this term paper I?m going to draw a comparison between two of Poe?s short stories, which both deal with the above mentioned concepts and images and therefore, are counted to the Gothic Genre - ?The Black Cat? and ?The Tell-Tale Heart.? The main focus of my work will lie on the similarities of the storytelling structures and the speech Poe uses to convey this certain feeling of suspense, horror and thrill. I will examine which further motives and images Poe uses in this two stories and which function they fulfil. I?m going to carry out my researches primarily with the help of the books: ?Poe? by Walter Lenning, ?Poe ? A Biography? by Frank T. Zumbach, ?The Cambridge Companion to Gothic Fiction? by Jerrod Hogle and ?The Fall of the House of Usher and Other Writings? by Edgar Allan Poe.

When Cara felt her teenaged children slipping away and saw an empty nest on the horizon, she decided the best way to fill that void was with dogs - lots of them - and so her foster journey began. In 2015, her Pennsylvania farm became a haven for Operation Paws for Homes. There were the nine puppies at once, which arrived with less than a day´s notice; a heart-worm positive dog; a deeply traumatized stray pup from Iraq; and countless others who just needed a gentle touch and a warm place to sleep. Operation Paws for Homes rescues dogs from high-kill shelters in the rural south and shuttles them north to foster homes like Cara´s on the way to their forever homes. What started as a search for a good dog, led to an epiphany that there wasn´t just one that could fill the hole left in her heart from her children gaining independence - she could save dozens along the way. The stories of these remarkable dogs-including an 80-pound bloodhound who sang arias for the neighbors - and the joy they bring to Cara and her family (along with a few chewed sofa cushions) fill this touching and inspiring new book that reveals the wonderful rewards of fostering. When asked how she can possibly say goodbye to that many loveable pups, Cara says, ´´If I don´t give this one away, I can´t possibly save another.´´ 1. Language: English. Narrator: Xe Sands.
