NOSTROMO A TALE OF THE SEABOARD By Joseph Conrad So foul a sky clears not without a storm. SHAKESPEARE AUTHORS NOTE TO JOHN GALSWORTHY Nostromo is the most anxiously meditated of the longer novels which belong to the period following upon the publication of the Typhoon volume of short stories. I dont mean to say that I became then conscious of any impending change in my mentality and in my attitude towards the tasks of my writing life. And perhaps there was never any change, except in that ...

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 north, between Inverara and the mainland, it was white, like the waters of a mountain torrent, white with wide strips of green as if it had got sick and vomited. To the south it was black with a belt of white along ...

But it had been real, ...

He was alone in the car, though. He knew he was alone in the car. He swerved back into line and checked his mirrors. Everything looked normal. He shook his head, puzzled, and began looking for another opening. His appointment was in five minutes, and he had three miles to ...

Its what ended me up in a Soviet built Jeep, lurching and crashing along a goat trail in the mountains of southern Kazakhstan. Had that desolate landscape harbored a casual observer, we would have seemed an unlikely pair. My native driver was a man who looked ninety, but was probably not a day over forty.
