  • Ellis Island Interviews: Immigrants Tell Their Stories In Their Own Words

    Peter Morton Coan

    Hardcover (Fall River, March 15, 2004)
    Like the Statue of Liberty who lifts her lamp nearby, Ellis Island symbolizes the hope, the promise, and the dreams of freedom and opportunity that lure impoverished and persecuted immigrants to seek a better life in America. Between 1892 and 1954, however, it was far more than a symbol; for millions, it was the final hurdle between them and the realization of their dreams. Indeed, if you were born in the United States, it's quite likely that at least one of your ancestors passed through Ellis Island.In Ellis Island Interviews, more than 100 immigrants from all over Europe and the Middle East offer accounts of those difficult steps that carried them to and through Ellis Island's legendary Golden Door. They describe the lives they left behind, explain why they emigrated, and offer moving stories of their often-frightening experiences, both while crossing the Atlantic and in gaining entry to the United States. They also tell us how they fared in their new homeland. Some of the adventurous souls who tell their stories here - including Bob Hope, writer Isaac Bashevis Singer, and movie director Otto Preminger - rose to fame and fortune in America. Even the unsung, however, were heroes. This book is a testament to their courage and perseverance.Peter Morton Coan, former managing editor of Boating World magazine and executive editor of World Tennis magazine, is the author of the critically acclaimed biography Taxi: The Harry Chapin Story. Ellis Island Interviews is his third nonfiction book.
  • Dracula

    Bram Stoker

    eBook (Fall River Press, March 31, 2020)
    Meet Count Dracula: Within, stood a tall old man, clean-shaven save for a long white moustache, and clad in black from head to foot, without a single speck of colour about him anywhere. His demeanor is distinguished, to be sure, but don’t let his unassuming guise fool you. Beneath his aging Goth façade there beats the heart of a bloodthirsty predator. Actually, his heart doesn’t beat all! Dracula is one of the Un-Dead, a centuries-old vampire who feasts on blood and whose very existence is a crimson stain on the discreet English society that he invades. Spawned in the fervid imagination of author Bram Stoker and first published in 1897, Dracula has served as the literary model for more than a century of vampire fiction written in its wake. It’s the story that first familiarized readers with the vampire and all of its supernatural powers: its ability to transform into a bat, to command armies of vermin, and to sustain its immortal life on the blood of helpless victims. It’s also the story that informed readers of the vampire’s vulnerabilities—its aversion to the holy cross, its powerlessness in sunlight, and its assured destruction by a stake driven through its heart. Here is Stoker’s canonical novel, packed with hair-raising moments that have thrilled readers for generations: Jonathan Harker’s near-fatal rendezvous at Castle Dracula in the Carpathian Mountains of Transylvania; Dracula’s ravenous rampage following his insidious infiltration of Victorian London; and the breathtaking pursuit of Dracula back to his lair, led by that most fearless of vampire killers, Abraham Van Helsing. But, hark! Do you hear the children of the night? That music they make is the siren song of all things unholy and profane. So grab your garlic, clutch your cross, and prepare yourself for an encounter with evil incarnate. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!
