Handheld Classics present forgotten fiction and authors who need to be rediscovered, with introductions by experts and astonishingly useful notes.
Handheld Research tells stories from scholarly research, in plain English.
Handheld Modern brings you excellent modern fiction and non-fiction from living authors.
