The Black Soul by Liam OFlaherty To Edward Garnett Winter 1 In winter all things die. So roared the sea around the shores of Inverara. To the west beyond Rooruck it was black with dim fountains of white foam rising here and there as a wave formed and came towering to the beach.

To the south it was black with a belt of white along ...

McBride swung on him and rammed the muzzle of the rifle into the mans belly. Ed bent double, retching, and McBride grasped the rifle in both hands and chopped upward, driving the top of the receiver into Eds mouth. The gunman convulsively triggered a shot into the timber of the boardwalk, then ...
