The Fortunate Mistress

Description: 

The Fortunate Mistress is written by Daniel Defoe. A stronger argument for different authorship is the difference in style between the continuation of Roxana and the earlier narrative. In the continuation Defoe's best-known mannerisms are lacking, as two instances will show. Critics have often called attention to the fact that fright, instead of frighten, was a favourite word of Defoe.

The Forged Coupon

The Forged Coupon is written by Leo Nikoleyevich Tolstoy.

The Forest Runners

Description: 

The Forest Runners is written by Joseph A. Altsheler. Paul stopped in a little open space, and looked around all the circle of the forest. Everywhere it was the same--just the curving wall of red and brown, and beyond, the blue sky, flecked with tiny clouds of white. The wilderness was full of beauty, charged with the glory of peace and silence, and there was naught to indicate that man had ever come.

The Foolish Virgin

Description: 

The Foolish Virgin is written by Thomas Dixon. The box couch was built of hard wood paneling and was covered with pillows of soft leather and silk.
