            A Tale of Two Countries and of Two Autocrats

            How the Ukrainian government handled Putin

            They completely rejected his attempts to take over their country.

            How the nadian government handled Tr*mp

            Simply rolled over and played dead. In the NAFTA "negotiations" Tr*mp sought control of nada's copyright laws, and got that and more. Our government thinks we're a U.S. colony, imposes U.S. laws on us, and takes away our property, the nadian public domain.

            It's time for nadians to behave like Ukrainians!

            2022/10/18: A NOVEL BY H. G. WELLS -- NOT SCIENCE FICTION, STRICTLY SPEAKING, BUT CERTAINLY NOT EVERYDAY LIFE !!

            Wells, H. G. [Herbert George] (1866-1946) [English novelist and historian] Wikipedia

            The Sea Lady. A Tissue of Moonshine. (1902) Wikipedia ["Such previous landings of mermaids as have left a record," this fine novel begins, "have all a flavour of doubt... But now, face to face with indisputable facts... I see these old legends in a very different light." Yes, this is a novel about a mermaid, who takes the name of Miss Doris Thalassia Waters when she comes onto dry land, near Folkestone to be specific, at the time a seaside resort very popular among England's ruling class. She is in pursuit of an Englishman who had ught her fancy "in the South Seas--near Tonga". Will she find him? And if she does, will their attraction be mutual?

            2022/10/14: E. NESBIT'S FIRST BOOK FOR CHILDREN, AND A VERY FAMOUS ONE! SHE WOULD GO ON TO WRITE MANY OTHER CHILDREN'S CLASSICS, INCLUDING THE RAILWAY CHILDREN !!

            Nesbit, Edith ("E. Nesbit") [Bland, Edith] (1858-1924) [English novelist, poet, and politil activist] Wikipedia

            The Story of the Treasure Seekers, being the adventures of the Bastable children in search of a fortune (1899) Wikipedia ["This is the story of the different ways we looked for treasure," starts this novel for and about children, the first such book by E. Nesbit, whose later novels include The Railroad Children, "and I think when you have read it you will see that we were not lazy about the looking." And so the Bastable children make their first appearance in literature. No spoilers here: the book's title gives more than enough information, and you'll know after a paragraph or two whether this book is for you. And chances are that it will be: its reputed admirers include J. K. Rowling, no less, and C. S. Lewis!] Project Gutenberg US [PGUS #770]

            2022/10/10: "IT WAS THE BEST OF TIMES, IT WAS THE WORST OF TIMES..." YES, THESE ARE THE FAMOUS OPENING WORDS OF TODAY'S EBOOK, A TALE OF TWO CITIES, CHARLES DICKENS' CELEBRATED HISTORIL NOVEL ABOUT THE TERRORS OF THE FRENCH REVOLUTION !!

            Dickens, Charles [Charles John Huffam] (1812-1870) [English novelist, editor, and social activist] Wikipedia

            A Tale of Two Cities (1859) Wikipedia [nadians are very much aware of how things n change in a neighbouring country. The US, with whom we had had tranquil relations for two centuries, elected an autocrat as president, and everything changed. The US even seized control of nada's copyright laws, hardly the behaviour of an ally. So much for government "by the people, for the people"! (Abraham Lincoln) The neighbours of France had a similar shock with the advent of the French Revolution in 1789, when they had thought that "things in general were settled for ever." And this famous novel is about the Revolution and its effects on the citizens of Paris and London, the "two cities" of the title. The principal character is Sydney rton, the "idlest and most unpromising of men", who becomes a hero by the time the novel ends. The Project Gutenberg US edition we offer you includes the illustrations from the 1859 first edition, by Hablot Knight Browne ["Phiz"] (1815-1882) ] Project Gutenberg US [PGUS #98]

            Pratt, Fletcher (1897-1956) [Amerin military historian and science fiction writer] Wikipedia

            The Blue Star (1952) Wikipedia [Science fiction novel, one of Pratt's most famous works, set in a universe not our own: in it there exist the Blue Stars, which are not celestial bodies, but a special type of jewel: "the witch-stone... barely a finger joint across, but seeming to have depth, so that even in the ndlelight all the sapphirean fires of ocean and cold hell were in its heart." The Blue Stars are held only by certain families, or rather by certain women of certain families, and their power is wielded not by these woman but by their men, as one of these men is told: "while you wear this jewel, you are of the witch-families, and n read the thoughts of those in whose eyes you look keenly. But only while you are my man and lover, for this power is yours through me. If you are unfaithful to me, it will become for you only a piece of glass; and if you do not give it up at once when I ask it back, there will lie upon you and it a deadly witchery, so that you n never rest again." This leads to some exciting situations!] Project Gutenberg US [PGUS #56889]

            2022/10/04: OUR FIRST EBOOK BY WILKIE COLLINS IS PERHAPS THE FIRST ENGLISH DETECTIVE NOVEL EVER WRITTEN -- CONTINUOUSLY FAMOUS TO OUR DAY, AND LIKELY FOREVER !!

            Collins, Wilkie (1824-1889) [English novelist] Wikipedia

            The Moonstone (1868) Wikipedia [Perhaps the very first English detective novel! Dorothy L. Sayers and G. K. Chesterton thought it probably the finest English detective novel ever written: a century and a half after it was published, who are we to disagree? It features an accomplished "amateur" sleuth, Franklin Blake, and the very pable Sergeant Richard Cuff, lled in from (where else?) Scotland Yard. The Moonstone itself is an ancient gem which had been stolen by a British soldier in 1799 during the British conquest of India. (One of the novel's many strengths is its realistic assessment of the true nature of British colonialism.) But when the Moonstone arrives in England, the intrigue and violence which have dogged its history follow it from India.] EPUB [University of Adelaide]

            2022/09/29: JOHN BUCHAN'S BREAKTHROUGH NOVEL -- SET IN SOUTH AFRI !!

            Buchan, John [first Baron Tweedsmuir of Elsfield] (1875-1940) [Scottish novelist; Governor General of nada 1935-1940] Wikipedia

            Prester John (1910) Wikipedia [Buchan's first true action novel, his first set outside the British Isles, and his first to achieve large and lasting popularity. The novel begins in Scotland, in a town overlooking the North Sea, where the young David Crawfurd, the novel's narrator, has spent his entire life. After his father's passing he goes to South Afri (a country Buchan knew well) where he becomes a storekeeper in a remote town where, he is told, something mysterious has been happening: "You look as if you had a stiff back, so I'll be frank with you. There is something about the place. It gives the ordinary man the jumps. What it is, I don't know, and the men who come back don't know themselves. I want you to find out for me. You'll be doing the firm an enormous service if you n get on the track of it." Crawfurd tells us what he discovers, and the exciting events he witnesses during his investigation.

            Potemkin Village (1953) [What is a Potemkin village? In the course of this science fiction novella Pratt, a famous military historian among other things, provides the answer: "Oh, back in the old imperial days an Empress named therine went on a progress through the country to see how it was getting along under her prime minister, Potemkin. He went ahead of her and had villages set up, just the dummy fronts of houses, with actors to play the part of villagers." n such a deception be engineered centuries later in a Russian space colony on Venus?] Project Gutenberg US [PGUS #69042]

            The Chestermarke Instinct (1918) [Yorkshire-born J. S. Fletcher was not a celebrity in the modern sense, that is, he was not a public figure. He was, however, an extremely skilled writer of mysteries, which acquired an international following. This novel shows why! The main character is named Wallington Neale: he is a bank clerk in the ancient and very quiet market town of Srnham. With the passage of time Neale is more and more aware of how monotonous his job truly is. But this monotony is broken by the sudden disappearance of his guardian, John Horbury, who had gotten him his position at Chestermarke's Bank!] Project Gutenberg US [PGUS #27965]

            The Island of Sheep [U.S. title: The Man from the Norlands] (1936) Wikipedia [Buchan's fifth and final novel starring Richard Hannay, who is no longer young but whose talents have by no means deserted him, as we discover. The novel starts in London, but then moves to the (fictional) Norland Isles in the arctic seas, a Danish possession: one of these isles is the Island of Sheep. Dark doings are afoot, a considerable challenge even for Richard Hannay! "Buchan enthusiasts will rejoice to know that this is a Richard Hannay tale, and that, before the feud is disposed of, the action has reached from South Afri to Scotland. The author, as usual, states his se and develops it, relying upon no tricks to sustain suspense. If one is seeking a high adventure tale with a colorful background, here it is."

Many things. "A detective story with real humor in it is a rare article, but 'The Circular Stairse' has an ample measure of that delightful quality.

The experiences of other colonized countries are therefore instructive to nadians, and this novel about Ceylon (Sri Lanka) is excellent reading.

Over breakfast he sees an ad in the Times: "Wanted immediately, for service in a foreign country, a gentleman of business-habits and good address. Salary ?50. per annum. All expenses paid." He naturally applies, and on the basis of a short and strange interview is hired! His first assignment is to make his way to iro, not a simple task; other events follow. Bevan makes no special claims for his book: "All that awaits the reader, is a simple narrative of adventures during a few months' active employment in Egypt" and of what he sees in Italy on his way back to England.

He is now himself a classic author, but when he wrote this he was a bestselling author with a massive worldwide following. And few writers had Arnold's talent for simplicity and persuasiveness, which this book certainly displays. For obvious reasons, he does not discuss authors later than the nineteenth century, and he writes from the perspective of his own period. This does bring an advantage, however: many of the titles he discusses are available in free digital editions from sources such as Project nada and Project Gutenberg US, and so acquiring a good-sized personal library need not cost you anything!

In it, as Buchan says, "the incidents defy the probabilities, and march just inside the borders of the possible." But real life is full of things that defy probability! The novel begins just before the First World War, when its main character, Richard Hannay, has just returned to London from a stay of many years in Rhodesia and South Afri. Almost immediately, he starts suffering from boredom. This boredom quickly vanishes when Hannay finds himself wrongly suspected of murder, and becomes a fugitive from justice!

Never before were two houses so illustrious, mutually embittered by hostility so deadly." There is an ancient prophesy, an ancient tapestry, and much more.

Always prone to bad health, Stevenson was seriously ill on arrival, but did recover: fortunately for posterity, he was to live fourteen more years, and would eventually live at the other end of the Pacific, in Samoa. However, as always, Stevenson did not allow his health problems to get in the way of his writing, hence this pair of essays, both of them startlingly relevant today. The first part, "The Woods and the Pacific", is a vivid description of the region, including its forest fires: "These fires are one of the great dangers of lifornia. I have seen from Monterey as many as three at the same time, by day a cloud of smoke, by night a red coal of conflagration in the distance. A little thing will start them, and, if the wind be favourable, they gallop over miles of country faster than a horse." The second part, "Mexins, Amerins, and Indians", is a demographic study of the city, its cosmopolitan nature, and the discreet but obvious persistence of Spanish culture and language.

The publisher Scribner's was on the point of rejecting the novel beuse of its explicit content, but their famous editor Maxwell Perkins threatened to resign, and so the book duly appeared, and presented the world with a more or less accurate picture of how Amerins of Fitzgerald's age and class actually lived: one contemporary reviewer commented that it was "delightful and encouraging to find a novel which gives us in the accurate terms of intellectual honesty a reflection of Amerin undergraduate life. At last the revelation has come." ("R. V. A. S.", New Republic, 12 May 1920). Twenty-nine years later, no less a figure than John P. Marquand commented on how little the novel had dated: "It still remains almost exactly as the reviewers first saw it, an exceptionally brilliant piece of work by a precocious young Princeton graduate who was perhaps a genius... Scott Fitzgerald was writing of a world he knew and of the only world he could have known at his age, of school and schoolboys, of the Princeton undergraduate, of the Plaza and the brownstone fronts and the bright lights on Fifth Avenue, and he confined himself with the instinct of an artist exclusively to what he had known and lived.

            A Lost Lady (1923) Wikipedia [The modern history of Western nada is largely the history of the nadian Pacific Railway and the many settlements founded along its route while it was being constructed, some of them still quite small, but some now very large: lgary, for instance, and Vancouver. The history of the western US is similar: the railroads me, the settlements started, and events followed their natural course. Which brings us to the town of Sweet Water, on the recently constructed Chigo, Burlington, and Quincy railroad, and to ptain Daniel Forrester, who played a major role in constructing the railroad, until "the ptain's terrible fall with his horse in the mountains, which broke him so that he could no longer build railroads." At which point the ptain retired to his house in Sweet Water, accompanied by his much younger wife Marian, the "lost lady" of the title. She is a participant in many losses: the loss of the heroic pioneering days, the eventual loss of her husband, and the many changes in her life brought on by these events. Robert Littell (The New Republic, 19 December 1923) comments that ther "accomplishes exactly what she sets out to do", and praises "the singular reality and solidity of the heroine, who remains in our minds as one of [the] most vivid inhabitants of any Amerin novel of recent years."] EPUB [University of Adelaide]

The Professor is moving out of his old house, for good reason, for it had many issues and was not a comfortable place to live. But the Professor finds that he's unwilling to leave the old house, since that is where he prefers to do his writing. And yet his new house has "a beautiful study downstairs". All of which suggests that the Professor has a complex past and present. And indeed Tom Outland plays a major role in the novel, even though he died in the Great War: he had been the Professor's favourite student and had planned to marry the Professor's daughter, Rosamond, who beme his sole heir, and consequently quite wealthy.

            The Life and Adventures of Martin Chuzzlewit (1844 [novel]; 1868 [postscript]) Wikipedia [The U.S. is now an aggressive colonial empire, and nada is its colony, after they forced the nadian government to accept copyright extensions and limits on where we could export, all this to enhance the monopolies held by U.S. companies. nadians are naturally curious about what happened to the original thirteen colonies on their way to becoming our colonial masters. What more agreeable way of learning something of Amerin history than by reading this fine novel by Charles Dickens? It contains some trenchant comments on the U.S. based on Dickens' own observations during an 1842 visit. It is only fair to say that in 1868 after a later visit Dickens added a postscript commenting on the "gigantic changes in this country" since his earlier visit, and describing how well he had been treated during this second visit. However, he left the novel's original text untouched. As for the novel itself (which takes place mostly in England), it offers some memorable social satire and has an extraordinary st of characters, as one expects from the ever creative mind of Charles Dickens.] EPUB [University of Adelaide]

            THE FORSYTE SAGA Wikipedia
            The Man of Property (1906 [novel]; 1922 [preface]) Wikipedia [The novel that began it all! As the story starts, we are introduced to various generations of Forsytes at a family gathering, hosted by old Jolyon, the oldest male in the family, and we meet the many Forsytes, among them Soames, old Jolyon's nephew, who is destined to play a central role in this and in the succeeding novels. The Forsytes as a group are not truly wealthy, there is no actual family fortune, and so there is a certain unease in their relations with the world and with each other. This ambiguity is a primary source of conflict in every age, then, now, and in the distant past. Hence Galsworthy lls his story a saga, like the sagas of Viking times a millennium earlier: "we may be sure that tribal instinct was even then the prime force, and that 'family' and the sense of home and property counted as they do to this day." Truer and sadder words were never written, as is demonstrated by the life of Soames Forsyte, the Man of Property after whom the novel is named: he is obsessed with the notion of property and ownership, a sure sign that someone is not truly rich and certainly not happy. And so with this first instalment we launch the Forsyte Saga, which was the favourite reading of the Edwardian era, won Galsworthy the 1932 Nobel Prize, and inspired two very famous TV adaptations, by the BBC in 1967 and by ITV in 2002. In short, this and the ensuing instalments of the Forsyte Saga are enduring classics, which never cease to entertain as well as instruct. Enjoy!] EPUB [University of Adelaide]

But Lewisham is a very sympathetic hero, and the novel is a pleasure to read and was one of Wells' favourites among his many works.] EPUB [University of Adelaide]

It would be hard for an Englishman writing in 1885 not to reflect the colonialism and racism of the time, and Haggard is no exception, but also by no means the worst offender in this regard, perhaps beuse he had direct experience of South Afri, having lived there for seven years. The plot of the novel is not that far removed from reality, since at the time lost empires were in fact being discovered, and as for King Solomon, there is a long Jewish history in Afri from antiquity up to the present day!] EPUB [University of Adelaide]

            2022/03/16: NOVELIST GRACE METALIOUS WAS OF NADIAN DESCENT — HER BIRTH NAME WAS "MARIE GRACE DE REPENTIGNY". HER FIRST NOVEL WAS PEYTON PLACE, BUT THIS WAS JUST THE BEGINNING! WERE HER LATER NOVELS EVEN BETTER THAN HER FIRST? THE ANSWER IS VERY LIKELY YES -- BUT YOU BE THE JUDGE !!

            The Tight White Collar (1960) [Grace Metalious was an exceptionally fine writer, with a sound knowledge of French literature and music, as becomes clear in this novel. This is not at all surprising in someone of French-nadian descent: her name at birth was Marie Grace deRepentigny. Her novels are of special interest to nadians, but deserve a lasting worldwide fame for the skill of her writing and the truthfulness of her narratives. This truthfulness is what made her novels notorious, but she was simply depicting life as it is actually lived, which leads to controversy often enough. Like Peyton Place, the novel is set in New England, this time in the town of Cooper Station, New Hampshire, a wealthy and unwelcoming town subsisting off the city of Cooper's Mills ten miles to the north, where a visitor "would find the factories, the tenements, the sixty-watt light bulbs in the soiled beer joints, the nucks and the tholics. But Cooper Station was different. It was made up of the people who profited from the existence of Cooper's Mills and who could, therefore, afford not to live there." Social conflict, sexual attraction -- human life itself, ideal material for Grace Metalious!] EPUB HTML HTML zipped Text Text zipped [PGC #1679]

But as n happen, Emma does not realize that her wealth and social position are lucky accidents, and not the result of her own efforts or intelligence. She should certainly not be telling others how to organize their lives, let alone whom they should marry! But that is what she does, naturally with limited success. nadian politicians are like Emma: they are themselves well off, seem obsessed with "middle class aspirations", and show little knowledge of or respect for the working poor. Hence the class divisions, gigantic wealth, and mass poverty that we now see in nada. Back to the novel!

Readers will learn much about daily life within the British Army at the height of the Raj, when the end of empire seemed impossibly far away, even though it was in fact only fifty years off.

            The Island of Doctor Moreau (1896) Wikipedia [An early science fiction novel, hugely successful and enduringly famous. The narrator, Edward Prendrick, is lost and presumed drowned in the South Seas, but a year later is found in a small open boat, in good health but apparently demented, and with no memory of what had happened during the intervening year. But with him was found his written narrative of these events -- and what events they were! While still living in England he had already heard of Doctor Moreau, who had become notorious for his experiments on animals ("the Moreau Horrors"), and it seems that on this distant southern island he had taken these experiments to new and horrifying extremes. We don't need to speculate on how Wells me to write this novel, for in the 1924 Atlantic Edition Wells himself has answered our question: "There was a sndalous trial about that time [1895], the graceless and pitiful downfall of a man of genius, and this story was the response of an imaginative mind to the reminder that humanity is but animal rough-hewn to a reasonable shape and in perpetual internal conflict between instinct and injunction." In other words, this account of human cruelty was prompted by the trial and conviction of Osr Wilde, and has to be considered a defence of gay rights -- this in 1896! Wells did what he could given the vicious homophobia of his time, hence his indirect approach. But what a tremendous novel he wrote!] EPUB [University of Adelaide]

And so this early and excellent novella by Tolstoy often seems quite contemporary: to start with, not just Cossacks but also the Chechens play a prominent role! The main character, Dmitri Andreich Olenin, clearly based on the author himself, is a rich young man "who had squandered half his fortune and had reached the age of twenty-four without having done anything or even chosen a reer." He joins the army, and takes part in the usian War. Olenin is greatly changed by his military experience, and by living among the Cossacks (the Chechens' adversaries), whose way of life he largely adopts, although there are limits to how much of a Cossack he n become. Still, he's quite a different man by the time the novel ends.

From the beginning, it was published as a serial, nine volumes, which appeared at intervals, the last of them being published the year before Sterne's passing. Not surprisingly, there is no particular indition that this was the end: no doubt Sterne might well have rried the novel further had he lived longer. But this does no harm to the novel, which is not an account of Tristram Shandy's life, but his observations on the people and incidents around him: his father and his uncle Toby play a major part in these anecdotes. The novel jumps back and forth as new distractions shift the narrative, but is not difficult to read, in spite of its age, and its vobulary is straightforward, even if the first line of Sterne's dedition happens to present us with "wight", that is, "human being"! Sterne was very familiar with the great Renaissance satirists Rabelais and Cervantes, and he has joined their number as a European classic and a uniquely entertaining author.] EPUB [University of Adelaide]

Pip has no particular reer prospects until the wealthy Miss Havisham becomes his patroness, paying for his apprenticeship as a blacksmith. But then he receives a gift from an anonymous benefactor, enough to make him financially independent. But will this enormous gift truly change his life? And if so, will it be for the better?] EPUB [University of Adelaide]

            The War of the Worlds (1898) Wikipedia [Science fiction novel, which has given rise to many adaptations, but none of these adaptations surpasses the original, with its famous opening words: "No one would have believed in the last years of the nineteenth century that this world was being watched keenly and closely by intelligences greater than man's and yet as mortal as his own..." It's difficult to exaggerate the influence of this classic novel, not only on science fiction, but on the actual development of modern space travel: Wells had the original vision which started it all! But it would be an injustice to focus on Wells as a mere influence on others: this is a truly immortal classic, beautifully written. If you would like to see the famous illustrations created by Henrique Alvim Corrêa, greatly admired by Wells himself, have a look at the French translation listed below!] EPUB [University of Adelaide]

            The Time Machine (1895) Wikipedia [Science fiction novella. Wells not only wrote the book, he actually invented the term "time machine", which has entered the language. And of course all subsequent time travel novels, films, and stories are derived from or influenced by Wells' masterpiece, which may be the most famous science fiction creation of them all. It's not just science fiction, but also social commentary: the narrator (the unnamed "Time Traveller") finds that class divisions, which we have certainly seen widen in the age of COVID-19, will not diminish with the passage of centuries: instead, the rich and the poor will apparently evolve into two separate species!

The diplomat Dr Philip Raven dies unexpectedly in 1930, but not before entrusting to Wells "a collection of papers and writings... a Short History of the World for about the next century and a half." Its origins are suspect: "For some years," Raven told our author, "off and on -- between sleeping and waking -- I've been -- in effect -- reading a book. A non-existent book. A dream book if you like. It's always the same book. Always. And it's a history." A history which includes the future, from 1933 to 2106! But actual world events between 1933 and 1936 had matched Raven's book precisely. And so Wells decided to publish the book!] EPUB [University of Adelaide]

            Tales of the Unexpected (1922) [Science fiction stories, fifteen of them, where seemingly fantastic things happen: Wells heightens their impact by placing them firmly in the world we know. For example, in the first story, The Remarkable se of Davidson's Eyes, Sidney Davidson is working in the larger laboratory at Harlow Technil College, when suddenly something happens to his eyes. He doesn't lose his eyesight or anything like that, but he does not see the things actually in the laboratory; instead, he sees "the sun just rising, and the yards of the ship, and a tumbled sea, and a couple of birds flying. I never saw anything so real. And I'm sitting up to my neck in a bank of sand." Quite an opening!

I went down into the under-world of London with an attitude of mind which I may best liken to that of the explorer. I was open to be convinced by the evidence of my eyes, rather than by the teachings of those who had not seen, or by the words of those who had seen and gone before." His explorations were successful, to say the least, and resulted in this enduring classic, a very readable classic: after all, we're talking about Jack London!

            Pride and Prejudice (1813) Wikipedia [Novel, perhaps the most famous novel in the English language, and certainly one of the most popular. The Bennet family is wealthy, but their wealth is transient, since the five daughters will not inherit anything: the estate n only go to a male heir. Hence there is huge pressure for one of the daughters to marry well, or rather, to marry someone with serious money. The "pride" is that of Mr Darcy, whose initial impression of the Bennets is that they are not the sort of family he wants to be involved with. The "prejudice" is that of Elizabeth Bennet, who quickly begins to dislike Mr Darcy. The Project Gutenberg US ebook we present is drawn from an impecble source, the 1923 edition of Austen's novels by the textual scholar R. W. Chapman (1881-1960) Wikipedia.

There is a direct line from the rlist Wars to the Spanish Civil War of 1936-39 and indeed to the question of talan independence which continues to roil Spanish politics today, and there is a direct line back to the Middle Ages, when Spain was far from being a unitary state, but was a group of independent kingdoms with very distinct religions, languages, and nationalities. So the Third rlist War (1872-76) settled nothing, but was a dispute between two claimants to the Spanish throne, the not particularly popular Amadeo I, from Italy, and rlos VII, who was opposed to liberalism, but in favour of the traditional autonomy of talonia, Aragon, and Valencia: this autonomy had been suppressed many years before by Philip V at the end of the War of the Spanish Succession. But Conrad's novel is not about the great themes of Spanish history, but about individuals, mostly in Marseilles, who are involved in various ways with smuggling weapons to the rlist forces in Spain. The chief of these characters is Doña Rita, born in Spain, but resident for many years in France, where she takes a chief role in the smuggling. "The murky intrigues of a royalist uprising form only the background for a tale of love triumphant, brooded over by the magic and mystery of the sea. There is something direct and elemental in the artless infatuation of the young sailor, known only as Monsieur George, palpitating on the threshold of his first love, and the experienced Doña Rita... whose youth and innocence still make answer to the youth and innocence of her lover."

            The ll of the Wild (1903) Wikipedia [For the millions who love nada and the United States, the last twenty-five years have been a complete nightmare. Our friendly border is now a militarized frontier, where passports are now demanded (for centuries, until 2004, less than twenty years ago, they were not) and hostile interrogations by border guards have taken the place of friendly chats with border agents. Still worse, the Thirteen Colonies have become an oppressive military empire, which has used a "free trade agreement" to make nada an Amerin puppet state, rewriting nada's domestic legislation against the will of nadians: hence the copyright extensions we so often discuss on this site, and will continue discussing, until these extensions, imposed by the White House autocrat and weakly agreed to by Congress and Parliament, are completely and permanently removed. But the nightmare we see today was only created recently, as will be seen from the pages of this famous novel, an enduring classic famous worldwide which takes place partly in nada, and partly in the United States. The story starts in lifornia, in Santa Clara County, where Buck lives. Buck is a dog, a very large dog, of some one hundred and forty pounds, who lives on the vast agricultural estate of Judge Miller, where he is well treated and likes his existence. But this happy environment was not to endure, "Beuse men, groping in the Arctic darkness, had found a yellow metal, and beuse steamship and transportation companies were booming the find, thousands of men were rushing into the Northland. These men wanted dogs, and the dogs they wanted were heavy dogs, with strong muscles by which to toil, and furry coats to protect them from the frost." So Buck is kidnapped and finds himself first in Alaska and then in the Yukon during the Klondike gold rush! As the story proceeds, Buck feels himself less and less attached to humans and more and more attracted towards the wolf packs he encounters. He is, in fact, hearing the ll of the Wild.] EPUB [University of Adelaide]

But how then do we explain the pro-Indian feelings so predominant in Kim? And if he was such an upholder of the privileges of the propertied classes, how do we explain ptains Courageous? It is the story of an Amerin rich kid whose character is transformed. The rich kid is Harvey Cheyne, the son of a lifornia millionaire: "Built one place at San Diego, the old man has; another at Los Angeles; owns half a dozen railroads, half the lumber on the Pacific slope, and lets his wife spend the money..." Harvey is washed overboard while he and his family are crossing the Atlantic, but he is rescued by Manuel, a Portuguese seaman who is part of the crew of the fishing schooner We're Here, sailing out of Gloucester, Massachusetts. Harvey works on the schooner, and his formerly difficult character is completely changed by the time he reaches port. Readers of the novel will be instructed as well as entertained, for it contains much information about the cod fishery, as well as an enduringly famous account of how Harvey's parents managed to get from San Diego to Boston with astonishing speed.

            Vanity Fair. A Novel without a Hero. (1848) Wikipedia [Thackeray's most celebrated novel, a true panorama of English society in the early nineteenth century. In the novel's prologue we find ourselves in a travelling fair ("Vanity Fair") at which Thackeray has been presenting his Show; he acknowledges "the kindness with which it has been received in all the principal towns of England through which the Show has passed". (The novel had been published as a serial, and would have been read throughout England.) The Fair represents life as it is actually lived, and is "not a moral place certainly; nor a merry one, though very noisy." And the Show is Thackeray's "novel without a hero". It is not a comedy: Thackeray commenting on his own role as stage manager comments that "a feeling of profound melancholy comes over him in his survey of the bustling place." But this should not deter you from reading the novel! It has infinite energy, sparkling narrative, and unforgettable characters. And within its pages people do what people do: plot for their own advantage, with little thought of others except insofar as it serves their own interests. Perhaps it should be mandatory reading in our high schools, since the novel certainly prepares its readers for the world around them, where few people n be relied on. Certainly not our politicians, as was shown in 2020 by the "new NAFTA" (yes, we're talking about the copyright extensions, but much more) and by the shocking history of the COVID pandemic, where the vast gulf between the rich and the poor beme even clearer than before. As the novel's main narrative begins, Becky Sharp is graduating from Miss Pinkerton's ademy for young ladies. She is much poorer than her classmates, and is well aware that she will have to rely on her own wits through the years to come: there will be no one to help her. Fortunately she is talented, motivated, and ruthless. And things proceed from there! The Adelaide EPUB we are presenting to you contains the fine illustrations created for the novel by Thackeray himself -- classics in their own right!] EPUB [University of Adelaide]

He was twenty years old and suffered from aspirations." Needless to say, some strange things start happening to Charlie.) Yet the most famous story of all, The Man Who Would Be King Wikipedia, does not involve ghosts, but personal ambition and imperial overreach. Two enterprising individuals in British India decide to seek their fortune over the border, in Kafiristan, part of modern Afghanistan. They have plans to set up their own kingdom, and at first this preposterous scheme seems to work, until things go wrong. Very wrong. Of course, in Afghanistan the collapse of the dreams of empire is a familiar story, as is shown by the failed attempts at conquest over the past two centuries by the British Empire, the Soviet Union, and, as recently as 2021, the United States. Perhaps the Soviets and the Amerins should have read their Kipling! Of course, you don't have to physilly invade a country to make it your colony, as the US's successful takeover of nada demonstrates: the 2020 version of NAFTA, which coercively imposed Amerin copyright durations and other outrages on our country, is certainly the act of an aggressive imperial power.

            Sinclair, Upton (1878-1968) [Amerin novelist, journalist, and politician] Wikipedia

            Letters to Judd, an Amerin Workingman (1926) [No one has ever had a clearer view of how the economic system really works than Upton Sinclair. "This book is written and published," says the author, "as an act of love for Ameri. It is made out of faith in our country, and in you." He discusses theory versus reality. And here's the reality: "Well, the first thing the big corporation financier does is to seek out some form of special privilege, some opening through which he knows that he n make quick and certain profits." We certainly see this in the COVID era. Why such vast public subsidies for corporations? Why did the citizens pay for developing the COVID vaccines, but private interests ended up owning the patents, with guaranteed monopoly profits for many years into the future? And why were Amerin commercial interests allowed to hijack our copyright laws, using open coercion? The government and all the "opposition" parties just rolled over and played dead! Excessive copyright lengths are economilly harmful, are an attack on the poor, and do not benefit the original creators, who are (how shall we put this?) dead. As PGC readers know, public domain ebooks cost less than those under copyright, beuse there is no longer a monopoly, but an open competitive market. Speaking of copyright, there never was a copyright on Upton Sinclair's fine book: "This book is an act of service, not of money-making. The work is not copyrighted, and any one may reprint it. If you want a large edition, the author's plates are at your service free of cost. Read, and do your part."] Project Gutenberg US [PGUS #65818]

            Dreiser, Theodore [Theodore Herman Albert] (1871-1945) [Amerin journalist, poet, and novelist] Wikipedia

            A Traveler at Forty (1913) [Dreiser's delightfully written memoir of an extended trip to Europe. And what a time to go! Europe was at its prewar height, and no one suspected the tastrophe that was about to engulf the continent. The places he visited included England, France, Italy, the Vatin, Switzerland, Germany, and the Netherlands. Wow! What more need be said? How about this: the book includes drawings by the fabulously talented Amerin artist William Glackens (1870-1938) Wikipedia! Reviewers noticed that the book, unlike many travel narratives, paid close attention to all social classes. The Nation (18 December 1913) seems to have liked this well enough: "In the pursuit of knowledge Mr. Dreiser showed enterprise. His London contacts were refully arranged, but he managed to quiz a street-walker on his own account. At Paris such investigations were naturally part of the programme. Into all his observations Mr. Dreiser rries a keen, quiet curiosity that is pretty close to sympathy. There is an odd reverence about what n only be described as prying tactics." But in The Bookman (February 1914), Stuart Henry was less positive: "Instead of bringing to notice men who are worth while or entertaining, he acquaints us rather with those who n guide through night haunts of immorality, have sex on the brain or desire to "lick" foreigners. And for the women of Europe we are freely offered examples from the various tenderloins who, even for their class, do not propose much in the way of edifition or esprit." But what else n we we expect or would we want than a balanced view of all sectors of society? And who better to provide it than the author of Sister rrie and An Amerin Tragedy?] Project Gutenberg US [PGUS #65765]

            Tagore, Rabindranath (1861-1941) [Bengali novelist, poet, and painter; Nobel Prize in Literature, 1913] Wikipedia

            Glimpses of Bengal. Selected from the letters of Sir Rabindranath Tagore, 1885 to 1895. (1921) ["The letters translated in this book," writes our author, "span the most productive period of my literary life, when, owing to great good fortune, I was young and less known.... It so happened that selected extracts from a large number of such letters found their way back to me years after they had been written. It had been rightly conjectured that they would delight me by bringing to mind the memory of days when, under the shelter of obscurity, I enjoyed the greatest freedom my life has ever known." The letters were written from various cities in Bengal and also from the Tagore family's country house at Shelidah (Shilaidaha) Wikipedia, which is now a museum commemorating our author. The translation was done by "one who, among all those whom I know, was best fitted to rry it out", namely the author's nephew, the politil activist, author, and entrepreneur Surendranath Tagore (1872-1940) Wikipedia] Project Gutenberg US [PGUS #7951]

            Austen, Jane (1775-1817) [English novelist] Wikipedia

            Pride and Prejudice (1813) Wikipedia [Novel, perhaps the most famous novel in the English language, and certainly one of the most popular. The Bennet family is wealthy, but their wealth is transient, since the five daughters will not inherit anything: the estate n only go to a male heir. Hence there is huge pressure for one of the daughters to marry well, or rather, to marry someone with serious money. The "pride" is that of Mr Darcy, whose initial impression of the Bennets is that they are not the sort of family he wants to be involved with. The "prejudice" is that of Elizabeth Bennet, who quickly begins to dislike Mr Darcy. The Project Gutenberg US ebook we present is drawn from an impecble source, the 1923 edition of Austen's novels by the textual scholar R. W. Chapman (1881-1960) Wikipedia. For Pride and Prejudice, Chapman principally relied on the 1813 first edition, and included some illustrations from Jane Austen's era.] Project Gutenberg US [PGUS #42671]
            Emma (1815) Wikipedia ["Emma Woodhouse," begins this famous novel, "handsome, clever, and rich, with a comfortable home and happy disposition... had lived nearly twenty-one years in the world with very little to distress or vex her." But as n happen, Emma does not realize that her wealth and social position are lucky accidents, and not the result of her own efforts or intelligence. She should certainly not be telling others how to organize their lives, let alone whom they should marry! But that is what she does, naturally with limited success. nadian politicians are like Emma: they are themselves well off, seem obsessed with "middle class aspirations", and show little knowledge of or respect for the working poor. Hence the class divisions, gigantic wealth, and mass poverty that we now see in nada. Back to the novel! Some consider it Austen's finest work, and it is certainly popular, with many TV and film adaptations, including the 1995 film Clueless, set in Beverly Hills!] EPUB [University of Adelaide]

When only nineteen, Anne had accepted an offer of marriage from Frederick, but was persuaded by her family that this was a match below her and her family's dignity. How time n change things! Some years later the Elliots are descending into (relative) poverty, so save money by renting out Kellynch Hall and moving to Bath. Not much of a hardship: their poverty really was relative. But Bath was very much a social centre, and there Anne meets Frederick once again. But the Napoleonic Wars have been good to him: he is now a ptain, and decidedly well off. A tricky situation for everyone!] EPUB [University of Adelaide]

            The Grand Babylon Hotel (1902) Wikipedia [Hotel novel, set in what is clearly the fictional equivalent of the then recently opened Savoy Hotel in London, and the most prestigious hotel imaginable: "It was not good form to mention prices at the Grand Babylon; the prices were enormous, but you never mentioned them. At the conclusion of your stay a bill was presented, brief and void of dry details, and you paid it without a word. You met with a stately civility, that was all. No one had originally asked you to come; no one expressed the hope that you would come again. The Grand Babylon was far above such manoeuvres; it defied competition by ignoring it; and consequently was nearly always full during the season." Now you know about the hotel and you have sampled Bennett's very attractive style of writing. As for the plot, things are always on the go at the Grand Babylon -- to learn more, read the novel!

Constance spends her entire life in a lightly fictionalized version of Staffordshire's Potteries District, while Sophia heads for Paris. But time passes, and after many dedes Sophia returns to where she was born, and is reunited with her sister. Arnold takes no shortcuts, but "it would be hard to say where there is a repetition or a superfluity" in the tale of the sisters, and at the end of the novel "there is nothing about them which we are not grateful for knowing."

He is now himself a classic author, but when he wrote this he was a bestselling author with a massive worldwide following. And few writers had Arnold's talent for simplicity and persuasiveness, which this book certainly displays. For obvious reasons, he does not discuss authors later than the nineteenth century, and he writes from the perspective of his own period. This does bring an advantage, however: many of the titles he discusses are available in free digital editions from sources such as Project nada and Project Gutenberg US, and so acquiring a good-sized personal library need not cost you anything!

The first novel is about Edwin Clayhanger, the son of Darius Clayhanger.

Williams, who, when we first meet him, has "very little money": hence the title. The novel's comments on life in the Bay Area seem as true today as when they were written: the tech bros had not yet arrived, but San Francisco was already cool. Very cool. Certainly it was a place where, then as now, it was better to have money. However, although he had many generous friends, he "was not too proud but too shy" to ask for money, The fact is that Edward was not socially adept and, in addition, was partly deaf, not that he thought most conversation worth listening to.

            Published under the pen-name Jay Franklin:
            The Rat Race (1950 Galaxy version) Wikipedia [Novel, a heady mixture of science fiction and politil intrigue. It starts in April 1945 when an atomic bomb explodes on board the U.S.S. Alaska. But the bomb uses thorium Wikipedia rather than uranium! In the explosion's aftermath, Lieutenant-Commander Frank Jacklin finds himself in someone else's body, and that's when things really start happening. The anonymous reviewer at Fantasy Book thought it was one of the best books of the year: "A fast-moving satire of Amerin life, sharp, funny, and to the point." For Groff Conklin (Galaxy, October 1950) the novel lacked credibility: "There have been incredible pieces of pseudo-science fantasy in the past... But this book really should take a prize." As regards the science part, perhaps. But from the perspective of today, the politil intrigues highlighted by Conklin seem entirely realistic: the murder of the U.S. president, for example, Amerin citizens not charged with any specific crime being sequestered in a huge mental hospital, and so on. Actually, Conklin recognized that the book "is fascinating reading... Certainly Franklin wanted to have his readers haunted by the idea that some of what he was writing was actually true. Maybe it was and just doesn't sound it." And indeed, perhaps it was true: as an eminent politil journalist and former State Department employee, Conklin certainly had access to excellent sources! The source for our ebook is the 1950 edition published by the editors of Galaxy Magazine, and is described on the front cover as "complete and unabridged" and on the title page as "a complete novel", but a note after the title page states that "This novel has been slightly abridged for the sake of better pacing." The edition was published during the author's lifetime: presumably he did the trimming, or at least consented to it.]

By a series of fortunate events she moves first to Denver, and then to Chigo, where she takes singing lessons, which go well, so well that she becomes an internationally famous opera singer, but never loses touch with her origins. "This story," ther comments, "attempts to deal only with the simple and concrete beginnings which color and accent an artist's work, and to give some account of how a Moonstone girl found her way out of a vague, easy-going world into a life of disciplined endeavor." But surely the most interesting part of most artists' lives is the beginning, later successes being only the logil consequence of what has already happened. In other words, ther planned her novel well, and was soon rewarded by its commercial success.] EPUB [University of Adelaide]
            A Lost Lady (1923) Wikipedia [The modern history of Western nada is largely the history of the nadian Pacific Railway and the many settlements founded along its route while it was being constructed, some of them still quite small, but some now very large: lgary, for instance, and Vancouver. The history of the western US is similar: the railroads me, the settlements started, and events followed their natural course. Which brings us to the town of Sweet Water, on the recently constructed Chigo, Burlington, and Quincy railroad, and to ptain Daniel Forrester, who played a major role in constructing the railroad, until "the ptain's terrible fall with his horse in the mountains, which broke him so that he could no longer build railroads." At which point the ptain retired to his house in Sweet Water, accompanied by his much younger wife Marian, the "lost lady" of the title. She is a participant in many losses: the loss of the heroic pioneering days, the eventual loss of her husband, and the many changes in her life brought on by these events. Robert Littell (The New Republic, 19 December 1923) comments that ther "accomplishes exactly what she sets out to do", and praises "the singular reality and solidity of the heroine, who remains in our minds as one of [the] most vivid inhabitants of any Amerin novel of recent years."] EPUB [University of Adelaide]
            The Professor's House (1925) Wikipedia [The professor in question is the grandly named Godfrey St. Peter, who is of French-nadian descent, and obtained his doctorate in France. But he is Amerin, and as the novel opens is enjoying a successful university teaching reer. The Professor is moving out of his old house, for good reason, for it had many issues and was not a comfortable place to live. But the Professor finds that he's unwilling to leave the old house, since that is where he prefers to do his writing. And yet his new house has "a beautiful study downstairs". All of which suggests that the Professor has a complex past and present. And indeed Tom Outland plays a major role in the novel, even though he died in the Great War: he had been the Professor's favourite student and had planned to marry the Professor's daughter, Rosamond, who beme his sole heir, and consequently quite wealthy. The novel has a large and attractive st of characters, and its plot ranges widely: it includes an archaeologil expedition to the ancient but now abandoned Cliff City in New Mexico!] EPUB [University of Adelaide]

It is about the Roman tholic church in New Mexico in the nineteenth century, and is told through the life stories of two French-born clergy. Fictional, but based on actual personalities and events. "Miss ther is growing restless in the old forms. The novel irks her... for the 'Archbishop,' she chooses the method of chronicle history.

As the novel opens, we meet our hero, who is a member of the minor nobility. He is nearing fifty, has a small household, and not much money. He does, however, have a great deal of spare time, which he spends reading altogether too many romantic tales of chivalry: by the time we meet him he n no longer clearly distinguish between the fictional worlds he reads about and the world he actually lives in. And so he conceives the idea of leaving his home, becoming a knight errant, and righting the world's wrongs. The novel is the story of how this project goes.

It was a business necessitated by war, by the ghastly mechanics of war, by the scheming, plotting, machinations, underhand tactics, filthy murders..." He has an employee, Shaun Aloysius O'Mara, who "played the piano, rode a horse, was a good shot, could sail a boat. He spoke a considerable number of languages, though very few people were aware of the fact... and was extremely apt with a hand gun." After this, who needs a plot summary?

            Dark Bahama (1950) [The "Dark" in the title is a tipoff: this spy novel is part of Cheyney's "Dark" series of espionage novels, not so very far removed from the works of Ian Fleming, his contemporary. And just as Fleming used Jamai in some of his most famous James Bond stories, so Cheyney has here used the Bahamas. The island of Dark Bahama, our novelist tells us, is beautiful, and the people living there devote their lives to pleasure. But if Cheyney's mysterious Ernest Guelvada is there, chances are that there is trouble. And indeed there is: murder, to start with, and assorted intrigues. "Pseudo-sophistition, clich?culture", commented the Saturday Review (3 Feb 1951), but what's wrong with that? Yet the novel also features "taut narrative and plausible surprise to last sentence" -- that sounds good!

            Almayer's Folly. A Story of an Eastern River. (1895) Wikipedia [Conrad's first novel, in which his peculiar strengths are already evident. He wrote English beautifully, and yet he was not from an English-speaking country, but from Poland, which through almost his entire life was not an independent country, but a region, split between the Russian, German, and Austrian empires: in fact, a colony. This put Conrad in an excellent position to observe and understand the colonial experience. Almayer's Folly demonstrates this nicely. It is the first of Conrad's three Malay novels, set in what is now Indonesia, but at the time was a Dutch colony. Kaspar Almayer is a Dutch trader who lives with his Malayan wife, by whom he has had a daughter, Nina. In anticipation of a British annexation of the area (which never happens), and the resulting increase in business (which also never happens), he puts up a preposterously large half-finished house ("Almayer's Folly") as a venue for his business affairs. But Almayer's delusions are not limited to commerce: his wife is secretly determined that under no circumstances will their daughter Nina marry a European. Nina is, in fact, strictly opposed to the European colonial dream/nightmare, in which Almayer is so deeply invested.] EPUB [University of Adelaide]
            An Outst of the Islands (1896) Wikipedia [Conrad's second novel, a sequel to Almayer's Folly. The islands in question are the Malay Archipelago (modern Indonesia), where Almayer's Folly had been set. Like its predecessor, the novel's focus is on a European, in this se Peter Willems. "The man who suggested Willems to me," wrote Conrad in his 1919 Author's Note, included in our ebook, "was not particularly interesting in himself. My interest was aroused by his dependent position, his strange, dubious status of a mistrusted, disliked, worn-out European living on the reluctant toleration of that Settlement hidden in the heart of the forest-land, up that sombre stream which our ship was the only white men's ship to visit." And, really, there you have the novel. Like its predecessor, it is a reful examination of what men will do when tempted or pressured, particularly if the colonial system puts them in a position of privilege.] EPUB [University of Adelaide]
            The Nigger of the Narcissus. A Tale of the Forestle. (1897) Wikipedia [Novella. UTION: Certain elements of plot and language may seem racist by the standards of today. It is truly unfortunate that the title includes an example of such language, but the policy at Project Gutenberg nada is that under no circumstances do we censor what we publish. As it happens, the novel, if anything, is an attack on the racist attitudes of Conrad's time: it is the story of James Wait, born in the West Indies, who is on his way from Bombay to London, gravely ill with tuberculosis, and of what happens on this voyage. Connoisseurs of Conrad consider it one of his finest works.] EPUB [University of Adelaide]
            Heart of Darkness (1899) Wikipedia [Rarely have an author's personal experiences been so powerfully transformed into literature: Conrad himself had ptained a boat on the Congo River, and eight years later he gave the world this classic novella. In essence, it is an attack on the tastophes that European colonialism brought to Afri, and centres on the life and death of Mr. Kurtz, who runs a trading post in a very remote area upriver in central Afri, and is both feared and worshipped by the people in his trading area. Not all of the story takes place in Afri. At the beginning of the story, the narrator, an English seaman named Charles Marlow, describes how he crosses the Channel to sign his contract, and duly arrives "in a city that always makes me think of a whited sepulchre... I had no difficulty in finding the Company's offices. It was the biggest thing in the town, and everybody I met was full of it. They were going to run an over-sea empire, and make no end of coin by trade." At the end of the novel Marlow finds himself back in Europe, and his outlook has been permanently changed by the appalling things he has seen. If this happens to remind you of Francis Ford Coppola's film Apolypse Now Wikipedia, that is no coincidence, for this famous novella inspired that famous film!] EPUB [University of Adelaide]
            Lord Jim (1900) Wikipedia [Novel, set largely amidst the islands of the Malay Archipelago. It n be read as a utionary tale, showing how important it n be to resist peer pressure. Very early on in his seafaring reer the title character makes the disastrous error of following the rest of his crew in abandoning his ship during a storm. Not just the ship, but its passengers! In a 1917 Author's Note included in this Adelaide digital edition, Conrad wrote, "As a matter of principle I will have no favourites; but I don't go so far as to feel grieved and annoyed by the preference some people give to my Lord Jim." Conrad thereby has let the t out of the bag -- it seems that he in fact had a favourite novel, and that novel is lled Lord Jim!] EPUB [University of Adelaide]
            Typhoon (1902, with a preface from 1920) Wikipedia [Novella involving, not surprisingly, a major storm in the Pacific Ocean. It was based, Conrad tells us, on a genuine incident involving a steamship rrying a large number of passengers from Singapore to northern China. "I never met anybody personally concerned in this affair, the interest of which for us was, of course, not the bad weather but the extraordinary complition brought into the ship's life at a moment of exceptional stress by the human element below her deck." And that nicely describes the events of the book, and what faces its central character, the unforgettable ptain MacWhirr. "MacWhirr is not an acquaintance of a few hours, or a few weeks, or a few months. He is the product of twenty years of life. My own life. Conscious invention had little to do with him."] EPUB [University of Adelaide]
            Nostromo. A Tale of the Seaboard. (1904) Wikipedia [Novel, with an Author's Note added by Conrad in 1917. It marks a transition point in his extraordinary writing reer, being preceded by various sea novels and stories (Lord Jim, Youth, Typhoon), and followed by the politil novels (The Secret Agent, Under Western Eyes). Nostromo is an adventure novel, set in a South Amerin country named Costaguana, which is fictional, but bears an obvious resemblance to Colombia. There are many shenanigans, both politil and financial, as was the se with Colombia during the exciting period of the US annexation of the Panama nal Zone. The central character, Nostromo, originally from Italy, is at the same time an important figure in Costaguana, and yet somewhat apart from its people. "Perhaps the nearest approach to a brief analysis of the complex web of this book is to say that it tells how this Nostromo, whose pride and joy, whose whole stock-in-trade in life, is his integrity, his unblemished reputation, becomes a thief..." (Frederic Taber Cooper, The Bookman [US], November 1904)] EPUB [University of Adelaide]
            The Secret Agent (1907) Wikipedia [One of Conrad's most famous novels, but its fame was late in coming: when published in 1907 it did not sell extremely well, and reviews were mixed. How things have changed! Now it is one of Conrad's most famous novels, and it is easy to see why.

            Under Western Eyes (1911) Wikipedia [This is a novel of politics, intrigue, and assassination, taking place in Geneva and St Petersburg, and centred on Kirylo Sidorovitch Razumov, a Russian university student with a mysterious background. The "Western Eyes" of the title belong to the novel's narrator, an elderly teacher of languages who is a longtime resident of Geneva. "A whole quarter of that town, on account of many Russians residing there, is lled La Petite Russie -- Little Russia. I had a rather extensive connexion in Little Russia at that time. Yet I confess that I have no comprehension of the Russian character." Conrad's father and grandfather had been politilly active, which no doubt explains why in his 1921 Author's Note he said that "My greatest anxiety was in being able to strike and sustain the note of scrupulous impartiality... 'Under Western Eyes' on its first appearance in England was a failure with the public, perhaps beuse of that very detachment." But the book ended up a success for Conrad: in particular it went through many editions in Russia, and has become an enduring classic. Conrad drily noted in 1921 that "by the mere force of circumstances 'Under Western Eyes' has become already a sort of historil novel dealing with the past"; that is, the First World War and the Russian Revolution had changed everything. But this simply demonstrates how clear Conrad's vision was of where society was headed. For us today it has special relevance, given the shadowy world that has unexpectedly emerged around us: autocracies and oligarchies worldwide, massive state surveillance even in what are claimed to be liberal democracies, "black ops" and secret prisons, and the rest of it.] EPUB [University of Adelaide]
            Victory. An Island Tale. (1915 [novel]; 1920 [Author's Note]) Wikipedia [Surely a novel lled "Victory", published in 1915, must be concerned with the First World War. Well, no, it isn't! Conrad finished the novel on 19 May 1914, and "Victory" was the title he had already chosen, which he could not bring himself to change once the war had begun. And who n blame him? The main character is Axel Heyst, born in London, but "directly his father died he lit out into the wide world on his own", and eventually found himself in the Malay Archipelago: "Everyone in that part of the world knew of him, dwelling on his little island." This is the story of what happened to Heyst and to those he met, in particular the travelling "orchestra girl" Lena, who changed his life forever. The ebook we offer you includes not only Conrad's original Note to the First Edition, but also an extended Author's Note which he wrote for the 1920 limited edition of his collected works.] EPUB [University of Adelaide]
            The Arrow of Gold. A Story Between Two Notes. (1919) Wikipedia [Historil novel, set in Marseilles, but principally concerned with Spain, in particular the Third rlist War Wikipedia. There is a direct line from the rlist Wars to the Spanish Civil War of 1936-39 and indeed to the question of talan independence which continues to roil Spanish politics today, and there is a direct line back to the Middle Ages, when Spain was far from being a unitary state, but was a group of independent kingdoms with very distinct religions, languages, and nationalities. So the Third rlist War (1872-76) settled nothing, but was a dispute between two claimants to the Spanish throne, the not particularly popular Amadeo I, from Italy, and rlos VII, who was opposed to liberalism, but in favour of the traditional autonomy of talonia, Aragon, and Valencia: this autonomy had been suppressed many years before by Philip V at the end of the War of the Spanish Succession. But Conrad's novel is not about the great themes of Spanish history, but about individuals, mostly in Marseilles, who are involved in various ways with smuggling weapons to the rlist forces in Spain. The chief of these characters is Doña Rita, born in Spain, but resident for many years in France, where she takes a chief role in the smuggling. "The murky intrigues of a royalist uprising form only the background for a tale of love triumphant, brooded over by the magic and mystery of the sea. There is something direct and elemental in the artless infatuation of the young sailor, known only as Monsieur George, palpitating on the threshold of his first love, and the experienced Doña Rita... whose youth and innocence still make answer to the youth and innocence of her lover."

            Suspense (1925) [Novel, left incomplete by Conrad, who gave instructions that no one was to complete it; but what he left was in itself a sizeable piece of work.

This short novel by Dickens is surely the most famous of his works. Is a summary really needed? Perhaps not, but here goes! Ebenezer Scrooge ("scrooge" has long since become a word in the English language) is the surviving partner of the financial firm of Scrooge and Marley. It is Christmas Eve, but Scrooge is not an admirer of that holiday, and tells his nephew, who has different opinions, that "every idiot who goes about with 'Merry Christmas' on his lips, should be boiled with his own pudding, and buried with a stake of holly through his heart." But then Scrooge encounters the ghost of his late partner Jacob Marley, who warns him that he must change his ways. Over the next three days he will be visited by three spirits, each with a message for him!

            The Life and Adventures of Martin Chuzzlewit (1844 [novel]; 1868 [postscript]) Wikipedia [The U.S. is now an aggressive colonial empire, and nada is its colony, after they forced the nadian government to accept copyright extensions and limits on where we could export, all this to enhance the monopolies held by U.S. companies. nadians are naturally curious about what happened to the original thirteen colonies on their way to becoming our colonial masters. What more agreeable way of learning something of Amerin history than by reading this fine novel by Charles Dickens? It contains some trenchant comments on the U.S. based on Dickens' own observations during an 1842 visit. It is only fair to say that in 1868 after a later visit Dickens added a postscript commenting on the "gigantic changes in this country" since his earlier visit, and describing how well he had been treated during this second visit. However, he left the novel's original text untouched. As for the novel itself (which takes place mostly in England), it offers some memorable social satire and has an extraordinary st of characters, as one expects from the ever creative mind of Charles Dickens.] EPUB [University of Adelaide]
            The Chimes (1844) Wikipedia [Or, to give the novella its full title, "The Chimes: A Goblin Story of Some Bells that Rang an Old Year Out and a New Year In". An impassioned plea for social justice for the poor, with a message that hasn't dated with the years, we n safely say, as we survey the deep social and economic divisions in nada and elsewhere. The novella was published the year after A Christmas rol (also available from Project nada -- in several languages!) to which it certainly bears a family resemblance: there are, for example, ghosts (goblins), each attached to a bell in a lol bell tower. Our hero, Toby ("Trotty") Veck sees "in every Bell a bearded figure of the bulk and stature of the Bell". The Goblin of the Great Bell takes Toby through a series of visions of the unfortunate lives of those around him, until he awakes at the arrival of the New Year.

            A Tale of Two Cities (1859) Wikipedia [nadians are very much aware of how things n change in a neighbouring country. The US, with whom we had had tranquil relations for two centuries, elected an autocrat as president, and everything changed. The US even seized control of nada's copyright laws, hardly the behaviour of an ally. So much for government "by the people, for the people"! (Abraham Lincoln) The neighbours of France had a similar shock with the advent of the French Revolution in 1789, when they had thought that "things in general were settled for ever." And this famous novel is about the Revolution and its effects on the citizens of Paris and London, the "two cities" of the title. The principal character is Sydney rton, the "idlest and most unpromising of men", who becomes a hero by the time the novel ends.

Pip has no particular reer prospects until the wealthy Miss Havisham becomes his patroness, paying for his apprenticeship as a blacksmith.

Arthur Conan Doyle was not yet a professional author, but a physician living in Southsea when he published this novel in the Beeton's Christmas Annual for 1887. It is narrated by John H. Watson, "Late of the Army Medil Department": Watson was indeed a veteran, wounded in Afghanistan -- some things really don't change! Anyway, like many before and after him, he finds London expensive, and is trying "to solve the problem as to whether it is possible to get comfortable rooms at a reasonable price" when he learns that Mr. Sherlock Holmes is trying to solve exactly the same problem.

All this, of course, is masterfully resolved by Mr Sherlock Holmes with the able assistance of Dr Watson.] EPUB [University of Adelaide]

Despite its title, this is not the last set of Sherlock Holmes short stories, for ten years later The se-Book of Sherlock Holmes was to appear!

The Professor is indeed back, although no longer quite the ultimate alpha male of former years. This change was induced by the death of his wife in the flu epidemic: "Life had much yet to teach him, but he was a little less intolerant in learning." Similarly, Edward Malone is back, "but life had toned him down also, and made him a more subdued and thoughtful man... his mind was deeper and more active. The boy was dead and the man was born."

Europe was at its prewar height, and no one suspected the tastrophe that was about to engulf the continent. The places he visited included England, France, Italy, the Vatin, Switzerland, Germany, and the Netherlands. Wow! What more need be said? How about this: the book includes drawings by the fabulously talented Amerin artist William Glackens (1870-1938) Wikipedia! Reviewers noticed that the book, unlike many travel narratives, paid close attention to all social classes. The Nation (18 December 1913) seems to have liked this well enough: "In the pursuit of knowledge Mr. Dreiser showed enterprise. His London contacts were refully arranged, but he managed to quiz a street-walker on his own account. At Paris such investigations were naturally part of the programme. Into all his observations Mr. Dreiser rries a keen, quiet curiosity that is pretty close to sympathy. There is an odd reverence about what n only be described as prying tactics." But in The Bookman (February 1914), Stuart Henry was less positive: "Instead of bringing to notice men who are worth while or entertaining, he acquaints us rather with those who n guide through night haunts of immorality, have sex on the brain or desire to "lick" foreigners. And for the women of Europe we are freely offered examples from the various tenderloins who, even for their class, do not propose much in the way of edifition or esprit."

Scott Fitzgerald was writing of a world he knew and of the only world he could have known at his age, of school and schoolboys, of the Princeton undergraduate, of the Plaza and the brownstone fronts and the bright lights on Fifth Avenue, and he confined himself with the instinct of an artist exclusively to what he had known and lived.

            The Man of Property (1906 [novel]; 1922 [preface]) Wikipedia [The novel that began it all! As the story starts, we are introduced to various generations of Forsytes at a family gathering, hosted by old Jolyon, the oldest male in the family, and we meet the many Forsytes, among them Soames, old Jolyon's nephew, who is destined to play a central role in this and in the succeeding novels. The Forsytes as a group are not truly wealthy, there is no actual family fortune, and so there is a certain unease in their relations with the world and with each other. This ambiguity is a primary source of conflict in every age, then, now, and in the distant past. Hence Galsworthy lls his story a saga, like the sagas of Viking times a millennium earlier: "we may be sure that tribal instinct was even then the prime force, and that 'family' and the sense of home and property counted as they do to this day." Truer and sadder words were never written, as is demonstrated by the life of Soames Forsyte, the Man of Property after whom the novel is named: he is obsessed with the notion of property and ownership, a sure sign that someone is not truly rich and certainly not happy. And so with this first instalment we launch the Forsyte Saga, which was the favourite reading of the Edwardian era, won Galsworthy the 1932 Nobel Prize, and inspired two very famous TV adaptations, by the BBC in 1967 and by ITV in 2002. In short, this and the ensuing instalments of the Forsyte Saga are enduring classics, which never cease to entertain as well as instruct. Enjoy!] EPUB [University of Adelaide]

            The Secret of the Garden (1924) [Novel, narrated by its chief character, John Archibald Cups, "aged thirty-two, ledger clerk of ten years' standing in the Consolidated Bank of South Australia", who is framed by his employer and sentenced to five years in jail -- with hard labour! His account of the trial shows little respect for the justice system, and is a nicely written piece of mockery. He is sentenced, but the warder taking him to prison has a medil episode which our hero takes full advantage of, so instead of being bundled off to prison he finds himself taking a tram to the suburb of North Adelaide. Here he finds shelter in an unexpected place, and help from an unexpected person -- "the eccentric recluse. Dr Robert rmichael". And that's just the beginning of the adventure!] EPUB [University of Adelaide]
            Cloud the Smiter (1926) [Mystery novel, marking the first appearance of Gilbert Larose, Gask's favourite sleuth in the many mystery novels he was to write in the years to come. The novel begins innocently enough. A young medil student from Sydney is taking a short holiday in Adelaide, and takes his bicycle for a solitary ride outside the city. Since he is alone, and in an area he does not know, naturally he has some problems with his tires and his lamp. He encounters two strangers who, it turns out, are up to no good. They seem to be part of a gang headed by someone lled the Smiter. Lots of things are happening, clearly. And we're only in the first chapter! As the novel proceeds, we learn much more about what the gang is up to -- think big, think evil! Inspector Romilly of the Adelaide police gets involved, and decides that expert help is needed, so sends an urgent telegram to Sydney: "He had a personal friend there in the Head Detective Office, the great Gilbert Larose..." And that is how we meet Larose, who immediately beme and remained Gask's favourite sleuth through the rest of his life (and novels). Does Larose's intervention make a difference? Of course it does! "Another pital Australian mystery story... It is a story that you won't want to put down until finished." (The World's News [Sydney], 3 July 1926)] EPUB [University of Adelaide]
            The Dark Highway (1928) [Mystery novel, marking the second appearance in literature of Gask's sleuth Gilbert Larose. "A man still under thirty, he was by far the greatest detective that the Commonwealth had ever known... In his ideas he was a poet, an artist, and a dreamer--in fact, he was almost the last man one would have associated in any way with crime, yet crime in all its phases was the study and obsession of his life." The dark highway in the title is a desolate stretch of the road between Adelaide and Melbourne. "To the traveller, this part of the Adelaide-Melbourne route has always been the one most dreaded--beuse of its drifting sands, its loneliness, and the absence of all help should help be required." An appropriate setting for some sinister events! Murders, actually, which seem to have everything to do with horse-racing, in particular the race for the Christmas Cup at the Port Adelaide Racing Club!] EPUB [University of Adelaide]
            The Lonely House (1929) [One of Arther Gask's most popular mystery novels. The house in question is indeed lonely, being loted on a remote part of South Australia's coast, far from any roads. It would be hard to imagine a more isolated lotion. But as it happens Gilbert Larose, "the best known of all the detectives of the great Commonwealth of Australia", normally a resident of Sydney, is visiting the area. He is recovering from typhoid fever, and the quiet and law-abiding lifestyle of South Australia will, it is thought, help his convalescence. He arrives "expecting to be intensely bored and wondering gloomily how he would be able to fill in his time." Well, boredom turns out not to be a problem at all. Quite the contrary!] EPUB [University of Adelaide]
            The Shadow of Larose (1930) [Mystery novel, featuring Gilbert Larose, "the star of all the detectives of the great Commonwealth of Australia, the prince of all the trackers of crime". Charlie Edis, the Adelaide bank clerk at the centre of the story, is undoubtedly a killer, in fact he's killed twice. But a killer is not always a murderer. A tricky situation, which certainly justifies bringing in Gilbert Larose from Sydney!] EPUB [University of Adelaide]
            The House on the Island (1931) [The start of this mystery finds Gilbert Larose not in Adelaide, nor in any part of his beloved Australia, but in London, Scotland Yard to be specific, in the office of the Chief Commissioner. Yes, he is now internationally famous! "Why, it's proverbial in Australia that Larose n reason back as quickly as he n reason forward, and they say that when a murder's been committed, no matter how long after, he n still see the very shadow that the murderer st upon the wall." He has been brought in to deal with a crime wave in the East Counties that has been going on for six months. But immediately on landing in England he makes it clear that he is no ordinary detective, by foiling a pickpocket who was attempting to rob him. Did he turn the pickpocket in? No, he took him to dinner, persuaded him that he also was a pickpocket, and over that dinner learned a great deal about the realities of crime in the pital: "it was such an opportunity for me to learn from the opposite mp how you gentlemen here work, for I was able to go into places I could not have got into in any other way." Talk about a quick study! That's the end of the trailer; for the main feature, download the ebook!] EPUB [University of Adelaide]
            Gentlemen of Crime (1932) [Mystery novel. Gilbert Larose is back, and this time he's fighting blackmail! Mr Ephraim Smith, after a successful banking reer in New York City, has moved to the United Kingdom and has been happily engaged in a lavish lifestyle: a house in Park Lane, a stle in the English countryside, an estate in Scotland, and so on. Then he gets a letter demanding that he make a relatively small donation to the Norwich Children's Hospital. "If you fail to do so within three days, the consequences will be unpleasant." He does not make the donation, and arson ensues, costing him three thousand pounds. Things get worse from then on. It's a good thing that Gilbert Larose is on the se!] EPUB [University of Adelaide]
            The Hidden Door (1934) [Gothic detective novel. Yes, seriously! Here's the opening sentence: "Grim and grey was Thralldom stle. Eight hundred years and more its mighty walls had reared their heights to Heaven, scorched by the suns, buffeted by the tempests and fretted by the lashing rains." And that's just the beginning! Is there more to be said? Well yes! Arthur Gask once again shows his mastery of the writer's craft, and his detective, Gilbert Larose, yet again shows that he is equal to any kind of challenge!] EPUB [University of Adelaide]
            The Judgment of Larose (1934) [Mystery novel, featuring Gilbert Larose. Sir James Marley likes to have guests at Southdown Court in Eastbourne, on the Sussex Coast, but this decidedly grand house party is the unexpected scene of a murder! Just before his murder, ptain Dane had won more than two thousand pounds at the nearby Goodwood Racecourse, and the circumstances certainly need scrutiny. Who better to undertake this scrutiny than Gilbert Larose?] EPUB [University of Adelaide]
            The Poisoned Goblet (1935) [As this mystery novel opens, Gilbert Larose is in his private office at Scotland Yard, deep in conversation with a senior investigator, Naughton Jones, who is about to go on medil leave. Larose learns to his amazement that he will be Jones' replacement! How did this happen? Through the intervention of Lady Helen Ardane, the wealthy Amerin widow of a whiskey distiller, who lives in Norfolk (not that far from Sandringham!). She is extremely rich, twenty-seven years of age, and has a son, four years of age, who is at imminent risk of being kidnapped. Expertise is needed: hence her procuring Larose's assignment to the se!] EPUB [University of Adelaide]
            The Master Spy (1936) [Not a standard mystery novel, although murder is mentioned, and Gilbert Larose takes centre stage. But he is not the Gilbert Larose we have learned to love! He is "the one time international detective, now a country squire and married to the beautiful and wealthy widow, who up to the time of her marriage with him had been Lady Helen Ardane". Yet he is not living a life of total leisure: the British Secret Service needs his help! Does the novel deliver the espionage adventure promised by the title? And does Larose still possess his remarkable sleuthing abilities? The answer to both questions: Definitely!] EPUB [University of Adelaide]
            The Jest of Life (1936) [Novel, but not a mystery novel; instead, a light-hearted satire of life in Adelaide. As the novel opens, we are introduced to "Mr. Montague Twiggs, dental surgeon of Adelaide, South Australia". Sounds like Gask wrote a self-portrait! Or did he? If this is a self-portrait, Gask had some quite unusual experiences. For example, it turns out that Mr Twiggs' spirit could migrate into the bodies of other people. Archdeacon Bottleworthy to start with, of Adelaide thedral! Merriment ensues.] EPUB [University of Adelaide]
            The Night of the Storm (1937) [Mystery novel, featuring Gilbert Larose, of course! A man has been killed, of that there is no doubt: his name was Edwin Asher Toller, and he lived in the village of Stratford St Mary, six miles from the ancient city of Colchester: he was the bailiff (estate manager) of "the Priory", most definitely a Stately Home of England, complete with butler, gardener, and four servants. "The place has been in the possession of the Brabazon-Fanes, who are one of the best county families round here, for hundreds of years... The late General Brabazon-Fane, the last male of the line, died two years ago and the property descended to his three daughters Beatrice, Eva, and Margaret." All three sisters are suspects -- what a mess! n Gilbert Larose lend a helping hand? Of course he n!] EPUB [University of Adelaide]
            The Grave-Digger of Monks Arden (1938) [A Gilbert Larose mystery novel. The gravedigger of the title is named Daunt, and the name was appropriate, for "he gave to many who encountered him in the country lanes at night the suggestion of a prowling beast of prey." He was gravedigger "of the ancient church of St. Benedict, in the little village of Monks Arden, about three miles from Saffron Walden", a small and historic town in the northwest corner of Essex. Some strange events have been happening: events lling for the supreme talents of Gilbert Larose, who seems doomed never to fully leave behind his former reer as a detective, much as he might wish to enjoy in peace his new status as a country squire in the pleasant solitude of rmel Abbey.] EPUB [University of Adelaide]
            The Vengeance of Larose (1939) [Gilbert Larose is of course unrivalled as a criminal investigator. But given the way the world has been going in the late 1930s, his talents n now have an impact not just on lol investigations but on international affairs as well. Which turns out to be the se. England is in danger: Larose takes to his new assignment like a duck to water. H.G. Wells, no less, considered this to be Gask's finest novel!] EPUB [University of Adelaide]
            The House on the Fens (1940) [As this mystery novel opens, Dr Methuen, who has his practice in Wimpole Street, a very fashionable address then and now, has just had the difficult experience of breaking to a patient the sad news that the patient's prospects for survival are not good. The patient is now angry with his "smiling, sleek, complacent friends" who will presumably outlive him. There is a change of scene: we are now in Hampstead, where Sir George and Lady Almaine are giving a party, one of the guests being his old friend Major Henry Sampon. By the end of the evening, Major Sampon is dead! How did this happen? And is there a connection with Dr Methuen and his patient? This all sounds very complited, but fortunately Gilbert Larose is one of the guests -- who better to solve this mystery than that legendary Australian sleuth?] EPUB [University of Adelaide]
            The Tragedy of the Silver Moon (1940) [Mystery novel, featuring Gask's famous sleuth Gilbert Larose. It begins in what seems to be a medil practice, but Professor Paris Starbuck is not a doctor! "The Professor was a man of varied attainments, and in his time had been a chemist's errand boy, an employee in the Zoologil Gardens, a kennelman to a veterinary surgeon, a conjurer, and a chauffeur and handyman to an East End practitioner of medicine. From the experiences gained in these occupations he now rried on a very successful practice as a quack doctor, styling himself 'Professor' to avoid trouble with the police." Of course, this kind of deception becomes difficult to maintain if a customer dies!] EPUB [University of Adelaide]
            The Beachy Head Murder (1941) [Mystery novel, in which Gask's famous sleuth Gilbert Larose makes his appearance, but takes a lesser role than usual. The narrator is the eminently respectable Jason Brown: "I open Flower Shows, I give away prizes at the lol sports and I am on the Boards of Management of several public institutions." However: "But I was not always so esteemed. I was a hunted man once." Clearly there's a story waiting to be told!] EPUB [University of Adelaide]
            His Prey was Man (1942) [A Gilbert Larose mystery. It's hard to imagine anyone in a more fortunate position than Colonel Basil Hilary: "apart from his beautiful young wife and baby, he was in perfect health, of ample means, and the proud possessor of many hundreds of acres of good and fertile land in the county of Norfolk." But trouble comes, in the form of the Colonel's new game-keeper who, it appears, knows some things about the young Mrs Hilary that she would rather be kept secret. Blackmail and murder are now on the horizon -- it's a good thing that the famous Australian detective Gilbert Larose now also lives in Norfolk!] EPUB [University of Adelaide]
            The Man of Death (1945) [Mystery novel, which opens as follows: "'Mr. Larose, I am being watched,' said the small, scholarly-looking man with the high forehead. 'I live alone in a lonely house on a lonely shore, and I do not know what it means. I am concerned about what is going to happen next.'" Gilbert Larose's visitor, or should we say client, is Professor Mildmay, who had practiced medicine before becoming Professor of Anthropology at mbridge University, and for the past eight years has been living on his own at Blackstone Gap, Norfolk. Larose is inclined at first to think his visitor a crank, but quickly changes his opinion!] EPUB [University of Adelaide]
            The Hatton Garden Crime (1945) [A short story, which does not feature Gask's famous sleuth Gilbert Larose! Hatton Garden Wikipedia is an area of central London that has long been famous as a centre of the jewellery trade. "For many years," the story begins, "Reuben Leyden had been one of the best-known diamond dealers in Hatton Garden... almost fabulous sums of money had at times, in the course of a few minutes, changed hands in his modest suite of rooms." One day... no, let's stop right there! To learn more, just read this very short story. Hint: there may be a murder!] EPUB [University of Adelaide]
            The Dark Mill Stream (1947) ["At eight and thirty years of age," this Gilbert Larose mystery begins, "Chester Hardacre was a well set-up, good-looking man, with good features and large, fearless blue eyes... Of strong personality, he was a well-known character in Hoichow, the chief seaport of Hainan Island, only a few miles distant from the mainland of China, where he had been a trader for fifteen years." But if he earned a lot, he also spent a lot. And he has a sinister personal reputation. n he improve his life by moving to faraway England?] EPUB [University of Adelaide]
            The House with the High Wall (1948) [Mystery novel, written in the aftermath of the Second World War. To judge from the opening words, Arthur Gask certainly did not believe that war solves anything: "The aftermath of war is always terrible. Peace is only for the dead, while unrest and disillusionment are the portion of the living. With the bloodshed dying down, the highways of the world are thronged with bewildered men and women walking aimlessly where once they trod with such resolution and such strength." Certainly in this novel we learn that the end of the war did not mark the end of murders -- and of theft! In this se, of an emerald necklace. There is indeed a house, loted in Suffolk, and after the war it was supplied with a high wall: six feet high and four miles long! And behind this wall lives Mrs. Dona Bian and her peacocks. She is from South Ameri, and is said to be rich -- how else could she afford the peacocks? No need to say more, except that Gilbert Larose turns up opportunely. He is now almost fifty, "a smiling, happy-looking man, rrying his age well." One thing has not changed: his ability to solve mysteries and ensure that the truth comes out!] EPUB [University of Adelaide]
            The Storm Breaks (1949) [Mystery novel, featuring Gilbert Larose. The young and impressionable Mary Hinks meets Birtle Dane, who is "with a big firm of wine merchants in the wonderful city of Bordeaux", where he lives "in a big house upon the bank of the beautiful Garonne river". He tells her that life there is "much brighter and gayer than in England", and events move fast, particularly beuse Mary's father is much impressed by the apparent wealth of his prospective son-in-law. If you think that Mary's father is a poor judge of character, and that trouble lies ahead, you may well be right! And if Gilbert Larose is present, anything is possible!] EPUB [University of Adelaide]
            The Vaults of Blackarden stle (1950) [Not a Gothic novel, as the title might suggest, but a mystery novel. The stle is loted in Norfolk: this might lead you to believe that it featurea Gask's famous sleuth Gilbert Larose, who has long since moved from Australia and has been living the good life in Norfolk: he is now rather well off. Not that Larose shows any sign of giving up his detective work, as this story demonstrates!] EPUB [University of Adelaide]
            Marauders by Night (1951) [A Gilbert Larose novel, set in 1925! As the novel opens, a very serious conference is underway at Scotland Yard. In the Eastern Counties (Essex, Suffolk, and Norfolk) there have been no fewer than five major robberies. In attendance is Gilbert Larose, "then in his twenty-ninth year and the youngest Detective Inspector at Scotland Yard... a good-looking young fellow with a pleasant smiling face. Transferred from Australia to the Criminal Investigation Department in London, in four years he had earned an almost legendary reputation."

Mr Sam Silver lives on Oleander Street in Manchester; his neighbour and close friend Isaac Emmanuel (hero of Mr. Emmanuel, also in our talogue) is often to be found in his kitchen. Messrs Silver and Emmanuel are eminently respectable; in fact, Mr Silver in the course of the novel rises to a position of truly spectacular wealth.

Graham had herself been a student at the Pensionnat des Allières in Lausanne: rarely has a privileged upbringing been put to better use than in the writing of this novel. "Miss Graham's picture of Lausanne and of the school, her statement of each girl's character and her demonstration of how it is influenced by what has been done to her, are deft and delightful."

            The Wind in the Willows (1908) Wikipedia [Novel. No ordinary novel, but one which has become permanently famous around the world. And yet Grahame had trouble finding publishers! It was published in the U.S. only after Theodore Roosevelt, president at the time, persuaded Scribners to accept the book, a decision we n all be sure they never regretted. Another famous admirer was A. A. Milne, author of Winnie the Pooh, who adapted part of it into a play. The main characters are animals, living alongside a river in southern England: Mole, Rat (technilly a water vole, not a rat), Badger, and of course Mr Toad. For more details, simply check out the excellent Wikipedia article. Or, still better, why not take the plunge and start reading the book immediately? Once you've started reading, you won't want to stop! "It is difficult to describe the impression made by this beautifully written book, or to determine whether it was intended for children, for grown people, or for grown-up children--perhaps it was meant for all. It is full of dewy nature, breathes the open air of field, winding river, and forest." (The Nation, 24 December 1908) The Adelaide ebook comes with a superb set of colour illustrations by the Amerin wildlife painter Paul Bransom (1885-1979) Wikipedia, which we consider fully the equal of the famous 1931 illustrations by Ernest H. Shepard, which are still under copyright as of 2021, and were supposed to be entering the public domain in 2027, not so long from now.

"It is a ripe and richly imaginative piece of work: the supernatural elements that pervade it are handled with a sure and effective craftsmanship, and the thrilling and picturesque incidents and episodes of the great quest are told with unfailing vigour and fertility of invention."

But Uncle Spencer, in spite of his English name, lives in eastern Belgium, which is where the story begins. The final story, Young Archimedes, twice adapted to film, is set in Italy, near the Apennines, and centres on a boy who starts showing signs of an exceptional musil talent. Little Mexin, the title story, is not about someone from Mexico, but about a hat, apparently a Mexin one, which as hats go was in fact very large. The narrator bought it in Ravenna, during his first visit to Italy, "and my shadow on the pavements of Ravenna was like the shadow of an umbrella pine." But it brought an unexpected benefit. Without it, people would never have thought he was a painter. "And I should never, in consequence, have seen the frescoes, never have talked with the old Count, never heard of the Colombella. Never.... When I think of that, the little Mexin seems to me more than ever precious." Three shorter stories fill out the volume: we leave them to you to explore!] Project Gutenberg US [PGUS #64814]

And yet, "John Grandin had lately found himself living under an emotional suspense. For hours, sometimes, he had a sense that something was about to happen to him, something untoward, perverse, impossible to fit into his comfortably ordered life." Which turns out to be precisely the se. Our young professor and his wife (to whom he has not been paying a great deal of attention) go on vation to Nantucket, Massachusetts. And on the boat from New Bedford to Nantucket, they meet Cliff Hauman, a ptain in the Marines, newly married.

            A Journey to the Western Islands of Scotland (1775) Wikipedia [Travel book, recognized on its publition as a classic, and famous to this day. In 1773, already in early old age, the eminent lexicographer and critic, who had travelled very little during the earlier part of his life, undertook an extremely strenuous journey of almost three months to Scotland, including some very remote parts of the Highlands and of the Hebrides. You'll often be using Wikipedia to find out more about the places he visits! His focus throughout is on what he sees each day, and his account is straightforward and always interesting. It is certainly relevant to nadians, for he was visiting Scotland when the massive waves of emigration to nada were already underway: given that our first two prime ministers were named Macdonald and Mackenzie, and were both born in Scotland, who n deny that modern nada is largely a Scottish foundation? So for many nadians this book will serve as an introduction to the Scotland which their ancestors knew. Note: The Adelaide ebook's title refers to the Western Isles, which is used quite often, but the 1775 first edition gives Islands.] EPUB [University of Adelaide]

            The Phantom Rickshaw and Other Stories (1888) Wikipedia ["Other Eerie Stories", according to some early editions, and indeed four of the five stories are ghost stories: The Phantom Rickshaw (it looks like a rickshaw, but is it real?), My Own True Ghost Story (why should mere death interfere with a passion for billiards?), The Strange Ride of Morrowbie Jukes (sometimes it's really not a good idea to go out at night in an area you don't know, even if the sound of dogs baying at the moon is annoying you), and "The Finest Story in the World" (Charlie Mears "lived in the north of London, coming into the City every day to work in a bank. He was twenty years old and suffered from aspirations." Needless to say, some strange things start happening to Charlie.) Yet the most famous story of all, The Man Who Would Be King Wikipedia, does not involve ghosts, but personal ambition and imperial overreach. Two enterprising individuals in British India decide to seek their fortune over the border, in Kafiristan, part of modern Afghanistan. They have plans to set up their own kingdom, and at first this preposterous scheme seems to work, until things go wrong. Very wrong. Of course, in Afghanistan the collapse of the dreams of empire is a familiar story, as is shown by the failed attempts at conquest over the past two centuries by the British Empire, the Soviet Union, and, as recently as 2021, the United States. Perhaps the Soviets and the Amerins should have read their Kipling! Of course, you don't have to physilly invade a country to make it your colony, as the US's successful takeover of nada demonstrates: the 2020 version of NAFTA, which coercively imposed Amerin copyright durations and other outrages on our country, is certainly the act of an aggressive imperial power. Perhaps the Amerins will learn their Afghanistan lesson, and start treating other countries, nada included, as their equals, not their subjects. Not a moment too soon!] EPUB [University of Adelaide]

            ptains Courageous. A Story of the Grand Banks. (1897) Wikipedia [Rudyard Kipling is often thought of as a supporter of imperialism. But how then do we explain the pro-Indian feelings so predominant in Kim? And if he was such an upholder of the privileges of the propertied classes, how do we explain ptains Courageous? It is the story of an Amerin rich kid whose character is transformed. The rich kid is Harvey Cheyne, the son of a lifornia millionaire: "Built one place at San Diego, the old man has; another at Los Angeles; owns half a dozen railroads, half the lumber on the Pacific slope, and lets his wife spend the money..." Harvey is washed overboard while he and his family are crossing the Atlantic, but he is rescued by Manuel, a Portuguese seaman who is part of the crew of the fishing schooner We're Here, sailing out of Gloucester, Massachusetts. Harvey works on the schooner, and his formerly difficult character is completely changed by the time he reaches port. Readers of the novel will be instructed as well as entertained, for it contains much information about the cod fishery, as well as an enduringly famous account of how Harvey's parents managed to get from San Diego to Boston with astonishing speed. If you're a railroad magnate, you n make some very special arrangements! We present two digital editions of this immortal classic: an elegant EPUB from the University of Adelaide, and an illustrated digital edition from Project Gutenberg US, based on the 1897 Macmillan edition, which includes twenty-two drawings by Massachusetts artist Isaac Walton Taber (1857-1933) Wikipedia] EPUB [University of Adelaide] Project Gutenberg US [PGUS #2225]
            Soldiers Three and Other Stories (1899) Wikipedia [Short stories about life in the British Army in India, originally published as three separate collections. The stories are about Privates Terence Mulvaney, Stanley Ortheris, and John Learoyd, who had already made their first appearance in Plain Tales from the Hills. Readers will learn much about daily life within the British Army at the height of the Raj, when the end of empire seemed impossibly far away, even though it was in fact only fifty years off. Kipling's representation of the privates' dialects (Irish, Cockney, and Yorkshire) takes some initial adjustment, but this soon wears off. What does not wear off is the very high quality of these classic stories.] EPUB [University of Adelaide]
            Kim (1900-01) Wikipedia [Kipling is often lled an English author, but he is more accurately described as Anglo-Indian: he was born in Bombay, where the first language he mastered was Hindi. This famous novel, principally intended for an adult audience, centers around Kim, a young orphan who is of Irish descent, but makes his own living on the streets of Lahore, and is in no way connected to the rulers of British India. At the start of the novel, Kim becomes the servant of a Tibetan lama who is on a pilgrimage, and so in the following chapters he sees both the plains and the mountains of India, and is profoundly influenced by Teshoo Lama's Buddhist teachings. There is much more for you to discover in this wonderful novel.] EPUB [University of Adelaide]

            Main Street (1920) Wikipedia [Sinclair Lewis was born in the small Minnesota town of Sauk Centre, which clearly served as the basis for Gopher City, where this satiril novel takes place. Its main character is rol Milford, born in the larger town of Mankato, somewhat to the south, not far from the Iowa border. As the novel opens, she has just arrived in Gopher City, having attended a college "on the edge of Minneapolis", and then gone to Chigo for a year to study librarianship. She is eduted and has a considerable knowledge of the wider world -- so Gopher City comes as a shock! The novel is particularly accessible to nadian readers, since Minnesota shares not only a border but much of its history and social structure with nada, from the time not so long ago when immigration from one country to the other was easy, and before the friendly border turned into a militarized frontier.

It is an amazingly comprehensive study of the world of medicine, is absolutely relevant today, and its fame has only increased since the advent of COVID-19. Its accuracy is no accident, as in a short preface to the original edition Lewis recorded his debt to the famous microbiologist Paul de Kruif (1890-1971) Wikipedia "not only for most of the bacteriologil and medil material in this tale but equally for his help in the planning of the fable itself--for his realization of the characters as living people, for his philosophy as a scientist."] EPUB [University of Adelaide]

This seemingly innocuous discovery has disastrous consequences. Howard Fast, the author of Spartacus, lavished praise on the book: "...Kingsblood Royal is not merely a good or interesting book, but as important a document on the subject as anyone has written this past dede... Show me another who n tell a story like this, in the wonderful old tradition of storytelling!"

I was open to be convinced by the evidence of my eyes, rather than by the teachings of those who had not seen, or by the words of those who had seen and gone before." His explorations were successful, to say the least, and resulted in this enduring classic, a very readable classic: after all, we're talking about Jack London!

            The ll of the Wild (1903) Wikipedia [For the millions who love nada and the United States, the last twenty-five years have been a complete nightmare. Our friendly border is now a militarized frontier, where passports are now demanded (for centuries, until 2004, less than twenty years ago, they were not) and hostile interrogations by border guards have taken the place of friendly chats with border agents. Still worse, the Thirteen Colonies have become an oppressive military empire, which has used a "free trade agreement" to make nada an Amerin puppet state, rewriting nada's domestic legislation against the will of nadians: hence the copyright extensions we so often discuss on this site, and will continue discussing, until these extensions, imposed by the White House autocrat and weakly agreed to by Congress and Parliament, are completely and permanently removed. But the nightmare we see today was only created recently, as will be seen from the pages of this famous novel, an enduring classic famous worldwide which takes place partly in nada, and partly in the United States. The story starts in lifornia, in Santa Clara County, where Buck lives. Buck is a dog, a very large dog, of some one hundred and forty pounds, who lives on the vast agricultural estate of Judge Miller, where he is well treated and likes his existence. But this happy environment was not to endure, "Beuse men, groping in the Arctic darkness, had found a yellow metal, and beuse steamship and transportation companies were booming the find, thousands of men were rushing into the Northland. These men wanted dogs, and the dogs they wanted were heavy dogs, with strong muscles by which to toil, and furry coats to protect them from the frost." So Buck is kidnapped and finds himself first in Alaska and then in the Yukon during the Klondike gold rush!

The Oligarchy was also known as the Iron Heel, as it was seen to be "descending upon and crushing mankind." In particular, the Iron Heel oppressed the poor, destroyed unions, politicized the military, and refully promoted the interests of the rich. All of which sounds like a certain Amerin president of the early 21st century. Sad to say, just as in 2020 every single one of nada's federal parties actively promoted Tr*mp's colonialist takeover of nada's laws, so in the novel nada "crushed her own socialist revolution, being aided in this by the Iron Heel... The result was that the Iron Heel was firmly established in the New World. It had welded into one compact politil mass the whole of North Ameri from the Panama nal to the Arctic Ocean." Sounds a lot like the 2020 version of NAFTA! A fine novel, and an amazingly prescient view from 1908 of future events that lay hidden from most... but not from Jack London!] EPUB [University of Adelaide]
            Lost Face (1910) Wikipedia [A collection of short stories, sometimes quite graphic! This was noticed at the time: "Mr. London... seems willing to spare us nothing." (The Nation, 21 April 1910). And it includes the most famous story Jack London ever wrote, which certainly has an impact: the 1908 version of To Build a Fire. In most of nada's vast geography, it is a very bad idea to go for a walk without a companion, particularly in winter. The more isolated the area, the worse the idea. And few places are more isolated than the forests of the Yukon!] EPUB [University of Adelaide]
            John Barleycorn (1913) Wikipedia [Novel. One of the mysteries of our age is the disappearance of the temperance movement. The ravages of alcohol continue, with immense harm to the social fabric, but are no longer commented on. Things were quite different a hundred years ago! But London's novel, with its focus on alcohol, is quite nuanced. John Barleycorn is a traditional name for barley, and by extension for the alcohol derived from barley. "His way leads to truth naked, and to death. He gives clear vision, and muddy dreams. He is the enemy of life, and the teacher of wisdom beyond life's wisdom. He is a red-handed killer, and he slays youth." But every aspect of society, particularly male society, is heavily biased towards alcohol. That hasn't changed! So Jack London has created a classic autobiographil novel that has lost none of its relevance since its first appearance. His conclusion? "I wish my forefathers had banished John Barleycorn before my time... else I should not have made his acquaintance."] Project Gutenberg US [PGUS #318]
            The Star Rover (1915) Wikipedia [Science fiction novel, one of the many types of writing in which Jack London excelled. The novel's narrator is Darrell Standing, a sometime professor at the University of lifornia, Berkeley, wrongly imprisoned for the murder of another professor. He is harshly treated, to say the least, during his years of imprisonment at San Quentin Prison, founded in 1852 and operating to this day, in Marin County across the bay from Berkeley: during these violent episodes he finds that he is able to espe his pain by focusing his attention and entering an altered state, during which he experiences interstellar travel, and much else.] EPUB [University of Adelaide]

It is set in Massachusetts west of the fictional town of Arkham, where "the hills rise wild, and there are valleys with deep woods that no axe has ever cut." No one lives there now, "not beuse of anything that n be seen or heard or handled, but beuse of something that is imagined.

Now he is back in his hometown of Clyde, New Hampshire and is looking back at his reer in show business: the reader naturally accompanies him in these excursions through the past, and learns much about life in Manhattan between the wars.

This novel is about Sir Willoughby Patterne and his attempts to find a wife, which prove a struggle, for the woman he sets his sights on is no fool, and understands him better than he does. Naturally he does not see any of this. The novel is perfect reading for our own age, which is riddled with egotism, thanks to personal branding and similar nonsense, all enabled and made pervasive by social media.

Her novels are of special interest to nadians, but deserve a lasting worldwide fame for the skill of her writing and the truthfulness of her narratives. This truthfulness is what made her novels notorious, but she was simply depicting life as it is actually lived, which leads to controversy often enough. Like Peyton Place, the novel is set in New England, this time in the town of Cooper Station, New Hampshire, a wealthy and unwelcoming town subsisting off the city of Cooper's Mills ten miles to the north, where a visitor "would find the factories, the tenements, the sixty-watt light bulbs in the soiled beer joints, the nucks and the tholics.

It is a continuation of the Tale of the House of the Wolfings: the descendants of the Wolfings show up as the Sons of the Wolf. As with the earlier novel, there are many elements in common with The Lord of the Rings, for which it was clearly a source. Morris's language has a deliberate antique grandeur, but he ensures that his meaning is always clear. For example, he renders the first sentence of the novel that much more accessible by saying "town or thorp" rather than just "thorp": "Once upon a time amidst the mountains and hills and falling streams of a fair land there was a town or thorp in a certain valley." Yes, this sounds a lot like Rivendell!] EPUB [University of Adelaide]

            Metzengerstein (1832) Wikipedia [Horror story. Poe entered the story in a writing contest, it did not win, but Philadelphia's Saturday Courier wisely decided to publish it anyway. "Horror and fatality have been stalking abroad in all ages," Poe begins. "Why then give a date to this story I have to tell?" And indeed he does not provide a date, but he does provide a place, Hungary, where "The families of Berlifitzing and Metzengerstein had been at variance for centuries. Never before were two houses so illustrious, mutually embittered by hostility so deadly." There is an ancient prophesy, an ancient tapestry, and much more. In short, we are very much in the world of Poe's most famous stories, and this inaugural story reveals him as already a master of horror and fantasy!

            The Fall of the House of Usher (1839) Wikipedia [One of Poe's most famous works, included in his 1840 collection Tales of the Grotesque and Arabesque, whose title nicely describes the character of this eternal classic. The narrator of the story has received a letter from his childhood friend Roderick Usher: "The writer spoke of acute bodily illness -- of a mental disorder which oppressed him -- and of an earnest desire to see me, as his best, and indeed his only personal friend, with a view of attempting, by the cheerfulness of my society, some alleviation of his malady." Naturally he visits his friend of former years, and on his arrival is shocked by what he finds! The University of Adelaide digital edition includes two fine illustrations, from 1909 one in colour by the British artist Byam Shaw (1872-1919) Wikipedia and another one from 1919 in black and white by the Irish illustrator and stained glass artist Harry Clarke (1889-1931) Wikipedia.] EPUB [University of Adelaide]

            The three mystery stories, featuring C. Auguste Dupin:
            The Murders in the Rue Morgue (1841) Wikipedia [What was the first modern mystery story, and where was it written? Well, it wasn't written in England, but in the United States, by Edgar Allan Poe, no less! And it has remained famous ever since its first appearance. It features C. Auguste Dupin who is "of an illustrious family", but has little money, and therefore readily accepts the narrator's offer of covering the rent and maintenance for both of them in "a time-eaten and grotesque mansion, long deserted... and tottering to its fall in a retired and desolate portion of the Faubourg St. Germain." Shortly afterwards they (and the rest of Paris) learn of the shocking murders in the Rue Morgue, which interest Dupin greatly. But he is not satisfied with merely reading reports about the police investigation: "The Parisian police, so much extolled for acumen, are cunning, but no more." He would rather make up his own mind, after a personal examination of the evidence. Fortunately he knows the Prefect of Police "and shall have no difficulty in obtaining the necessary permission." Which turns out to be the se, and matters preceed from there! The University of Adelaide ebook includes a famous 1895 illustration by Aubrey Beardsley (1872-1898) Wikipedia] EPUB [University of Adelaide]
            The Mystery of Marie Rogêt (1842) Wikipedia [Mystery story, "A Sequel to 'The Murders in the Rue Morgue'". As the story opens, things have lmed down in Paris, or, as Poe's narrator puts it, "continuing to occupy our chambers in the Faubourg Saint Germain, we gave the Future to the winds, and slumbered tranquilly in the Present, weaving the dull world around us into dreams." Needless to say, this lm state of affairs does not continue. For the Paris police are now very much aware of the talents of the Chevalier C. Auguste Dupin, and now often consult him in difficult ses, for example the one involving Marie Roget. This sequel to The Murders in the Rue Morgue, the first modern mystery story, is independently famous, being the first mystery story based on a historil event, to be specific the 1841 death, under circumstances mysterious to this day, of Mary Rogers of New York City. Note: We have retained the ebook's spelling "Roget", and have not added a circumflex accent.] EPUB [University of Adelaide]
            The Purloined Letter (1844) Wikipedia [The final mystery story by Edgar Allan Poe, considered by its author perhaps the best of his "tales of ratiocination", as he lled his mysteries. Once again, the Prefect of the Paris police lls on the services of C. Auguste Dupin for help with a puzzling se -- the theft of a letter from the royal apartments, which contains compromising information. But where n the letter be found?] EPUB [University of Adelaide]
            The Masque of the Red Death (1845 version) (1845) Wikipedia [Short story. The "Red Death" has reached the realms of Prince Prospero, but he has the answer, at least for the aristocracy. "When his dominions were half depopulated, he summoned to his presence a thousand hale and light-hearted friends from among the knights and dames of his court, and with these retired to the deep seclusion of one of his stellated abbeys... The abbey was amply provisioned. With such preutions the courtiers might bid defiance to contagion. The external world could take re of itself." Sounds a lot like the arrival of COVID-19 in our own times, with the well-off secluding themselves and leaving the "essential workers" and the marginalized to fend for themselves. That hasn't worked out too well for anyone. As for Prince Prospero... well, read the story! It comes with three fine illustrations by the Irish artist Harry Clarke (1889-1931)] Wikipedia.] EPUB [University of Adelaide]

The Blue Stars are held only by certain families, or rather by certain women of certain families, and their power is wielded not by these woman but by their men, as one of these men is told: "while you wear this jewel, you are of the witch-families, and n read the thoughts of those in whose eyes you look keenly. But only while you are my man and lover, for this power is yours through me. If you are unfaithful to me, it will become for you only a piece of glass; and if you do not give it up at once when I ask it back, there will lie upon you and it a deadly witchery, so that you n never rest again."
