Kim Stanley Robinson PACIFIC EDGE for my parents 1 Despair could never touch a morning like this. The air was cool, and smelled of sage. It had the clarity that comes to southern California only after a Santa Ana wind has blown all haze and history out to seaair like telescopic glass, so that the snowtopped San Gabriels seemed near enough to touch, though they were forty miles away. The flanks of the blue foothills revealed the etching of every ravine, and beneath the foothills, stretching to ...

Derek Robinson WAR STORY for my Mother Chapter 1 On the map it was about 160 miles from the aerodrome at Shoreham, across the English Channel and down through France to Pepriac, a scruffy little crossroads village some way south of Arras. That was on the map. In the air, and flying a BE2c, which meant crabbing against the wind and dodging the bigger clouds, the distance would be more like 200 miles. Allowing for a stop at the St. Omer depot near Boulogne to have lunch and a pee, ...

Derek Robinson PIECE OF CAKE For Wally and Beth SEPTEMBER 1939 Dawn was beginning to soften the edge of the night as the Buick convertible cruised through the Essex countryside. Its driver was a small man, so short that he had to sit on a cushion and lean forward to see over the Buicks broad bonnet. His right leg was at full stretch even so, only his toes pressed the accelerator. The rush of air lashed his curly hair forward. There were three other men in the car, all asleep. Like the driver, ...

I harnessed felled tree trunks to a horse to transport them from the riverbank to the sawmill. Then I tied them to a winch and lowered them one by one to Ovanes band saw. In the evening I fed the horse with oats and spread out straw for him. I rented a room from Ovanes at 16 Svevo Street. My window ...

Clare Houston AN UNQUIET PLACE For the real author, the miracle maker, the only one who can bring something out of nothing. That is what he has done with me. CHAPTER ONE High on the plateau, evening crept across the sky. Swallows pitched and swung through the air, and a small breeze lifted the grasses, sending a ripple across the surface of the reservoir. The breeze shivered through the grey leaves of the old gums, and gently picked up the skirts of a woman carrying buckets across the flat ...
