Plenty of people are interested in making ionocrafts at the moment, because while the ion wind theory is generally accepted, there are plenty who think that ionocrafts employ forces that might revolutionize both physics and transportation. Thomas Townsend Brown, a gifted inventor and scientists, believed that ionocrafts displayed some kind of anti-gravitational force, and spent much of his life designing these "lifters." If ionocrafts manage any kind of anti-gravitational force, it seems to be contingent on their being in an atmosphere, as ionocrafts do not lift up in a vacuum.
In 18th century France, the Marquise de Merteuil and the Vicomte de Valmont play a dangerous game of seduction. Valmont is someone who measures success by the number of his conquests and Merteuil challenges him to seduce the soon to be married Cecile de Volanges and provide proof in writing of his success. His reward for doing so will be to spend the night with Merteuil. He has little difficulty seducing Cecile but what he really wants is to seduce Madame de Tourvel. When Merteuil learns that he has actually fallen in love with her, she refuses to let him claim his reward for seducing Cecile. Death soon follows. Written by garykmcd
