Pat Frank HOLD BACK THE NIGHT For the United States Marines Chapter One CAPTAIN SAM MACKENZIE clung to his dream as long as he could. The dream was of his wife, Anne. She eased across the bed, and pulsed in his arms, but she was strangely cold, and he was bewildered. Come closer, he whispered, and she moved tight against him, but she was still cold, and no relief to his desire. Then in the half light that lies between sleep and consciousness he recognized, as if his mind stood apart from him and ...

High dunes wall the highway from the sea, and where there are no dunes the ocean is curtained by cabbage palms and stunted magnolias fighting for root space in dense palmetto ...

When I was a kid, sitting in the factories, using my smaller hands to help put together the engine components of our bombers, the radio crackled peace talks half a world away in Ven. I can still recall the newspapers and their inky headlines, when I was a teenager, promising us we were just months away from forcing the enemys surrender. And now Now its their ...

Howard, clutching his leather satchel close to his chest, took his first up-close look at the ship and saw her as a leviathan, ravenous and grotesque. Passengers entered her sinister labyrinths to find themselves a part of the mystical, Bacchanalian voyage, or so he thought. If asked to describe the Titanic, he ...

It had been well over 35,000 hours or so since then, with still not much murdering, but probably, I dont know, a little under 35,000 hours of movies, serials, books, plays, and music consumed.
