The Goat and Her Kid

Description: 

The grass plot at the back of the cottage was a very bright green, and sparkled with the morning dews. It was kept smooth, and level, and short, by the garden-roller going over it once a week, and still more by the constant nibbling.

Suite Mentale

Description: 

An old man sat quietly in his lawnchair, puffing contentedly on an expensive briar pipe and making corrections with a fountain pen on a thick sheaf of typewritten manuscript. Around him stretched an expanse of green lawn, dotted here and there with squat cycads that looked like overgrown pineapples; in the distance, screening the big house from the road.

The Return of Sathanas

Description: 

On most of the assignments that I took my ship, the Darkome, I had plenty of time for my own experiments, far from the distracting social activities of my own adorable Arl. But this trip would not allow me any time to myself--this trip was ordered by the great Elders of Nor themselves. I was to capture and bring to trial that unwise but accomplished fiend, Sathanas, Ruler of the planet Satana.

Nanowhere

Description: 

The forest was haunted. Everyone knew that, but the tax deal apparently included a do-not-bother-the-skaters clause, and so as long as you stayed this side of the gate you weren't likely to run into any of the rumored specters, alleged oversized arachnids, poisonous fog or any of the other blood-drinking, mind-emptying, acidic-saliva-spitting denizens of the wood.
