 Destination: The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World
With modern monuments, the Seven Wonders of the Middle Ages, and the world's Seven Natural Wonders in the mix, very few people can sort out these astounding ancient architectural feats.
The ancient Greeks and Romans are said to have initiated the original "Seven Wonders" list, perhaps as an early travel guide of sorts.
Unfortunately, relatively few drawings or sketches exist of the wonders that vanished, so archaeologists have relied on ancient tales and literary works to get an idea of their appearance and history.

 Review | The Wonders of the Invisible World
In his first short-story collection, The Wonders of the Invisible World, David Gates turns his keen observational powers, honed in two novels (Jernigan and Preston Falls) and a critic's career at Newsweek, on the class of Manhattan professionals he knows best: writers, graphic designers, filmmakers -- successful, creative people mostly in their late-30s and 40s.
With sometimes razor-edged sarcasm, sometimes heartfelt compassion, Gates describes his characters in fine detail, showing how "neurotic self-subversion," as he likes to call it, so often undermines their progress in life.
In these stories, he describes what happens when the force of internal turbulence sends shock waves into external life.
