Explore Fiction Books & Literature
When you think of the word literature, what's the first thing you think of? Stuffy poetry and people in cumberbunds saying words like "verily" and "prithee"? Let this section relieve you of any and all such fantasies, for it is here where your swash-buckling action and adventures buckle and swash. Can you hear the drama and mythology sections monologuing about gods and heroes, maybe even invoking the occasional muse? War stories and thrillers abound here, and all such edge-of-your-seat type goodness.
