HERCULE POIROT'S CHRISTMAS

by Agatha Christie

What do you give an evil patriarch for Christmas? Someone thought a cut throat inside a locked room would be appropriate! The entire Lee family had good motive and plenty of opportunity to kill the nasty Simeon Lee, but which one actually ruined the holidays! ‘Hercule Poirot’s Christmas’ is a seasonal mystery by Agatha Christie.

MICROMEGAS

by Voltaire

Micromégas is sort of a travelogue, or an imaginary voyage. It is subtitled 'A philosophical story' which makes Voltaire’s aim clear. As with earlier writings by Voltaire, its tone is satirical. This time, however, the tale is from the perspective of a couple of aliens, although the narrator is from Earth.
