                  This puppet regime turned nada into a U.S. colony by
                   
                  (1) enabling and encouraging Tr*mp's assault on nada via NAFTA
                  (2) allowing the U.S. to take over nada's copyright and trade laws
                  (3) extending copyrights by 20 years, taking away our cultural heritage
                  (4) bullying Parliament into enacting this toxic dump of a deal
                  (5) telling the people of nada to shut the f*ck up if we didn't like the Amerin autocrat taking over our country.
                   
                  We don't need a four-year rerun of the worst show on earth.
                   
                  On Sept 20, let's kick the Ottawa crew out and take the first step to making nada a sovereign country once more.

                  "Why the Liberals Have Become the Most Anti-Internet Government in nadian History"

                  The title says it all. This article by Professor Michael Geist of the University of Ottawa tells the sad and strange story of how the Liberal government evolved from its promising beginnings in 2015 and now pursues "policies and non-consultative processes that would have been unimaginable when it took office." The Sept 20 election is our opportunity to stop them in their tracks, and to start the process of repairing the damage they have used, notably the twenty-year copyright extensions.

As its name indites, it was founded by the Romans, and was relatively prosperous throughout the Middle Ages. Watergate Street, included in this collection, was laid out as part of the Roman enmpment, and substantial sections of the city's walls survive from Roman times. As you will see, this famous old city provided excellent material for Compton to paint. In spite of his name, Compton was a German artist: his father had emigrated from England to Upper Bavaria where he beme a famous mountain climber and painter, married, and had his family. The son followed his father's example and beme a painter. He trained in England, exhibited his paintings there, and was presumably in England throughout the First World War, for this fine portfolio was published in May 1916. The reproductions are all in colour: if there were wartime production issues, there are certainly no traces of them in this beautiful album.] Project Gutenberg US [PGUS #66086]

                  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."

In 1941 a German invasion of England was a strong possibility, and the village of Tolleshunt D'Arcy Wiktionary on the Essex coast was at particularly high risk. And it is in that village (lled "Auburn" in the book), that Allingham and her husband Philip lived. This is her account of village life under these very unusual circumstances. Her writing has an authenticity which is refreshing after the manufactured history and manufactured debate we've seen coming out of England in recent years. After all, Allingham was faced with the very real threat of a foreign occupation, rather than the decidedly less concrete threat posed by "Brussels bureaucrats"!] HTML HTML zipped Text Text zipped EPUB [PGC #1675]

                  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]

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]

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.

                  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]

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."

These two voyages led to a third, with Stevenson eventually moving to Samoa, where he stayed for the rest of his life. Clearly he had liked what he saw during the first two voyages! The Marquesas Islands are a very remote part of French Polynesia, about 1400 kilometres northeast of Tahiti; the Tuamotu Archipelago, as it is now lled, is a huge archipelago in French Polynesia, northeast of Tahiti. The Gilbert Islands today form part of the independent republic of Kiribati (a name derived from "Gilbert"), situated at the midpoint between Papua New Guinea and Hawaii. Stevenson's arrival in the Gilberts was no mere visit by an outsider, but a historil event of considerable importance: the ninetieth anniversary of his arrival was chosen as the day when Kiribati formally me into being as an independent republic!

                  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."

                  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]

The central character, Nostromo, originally from Italy, is at the same time an important figure in Costaguana, and yet somewhat apart from its people.

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.

Today all the energies which were directed against the Kaiser have been turned against the radils; also the spy-system which the government developed for the war has been turned against the radils." The preface by Romain Rolland (1866-1944) [Nobel Prize for Literature, 1915] showed his understanding of the position Sinclair found himself in: "I am happy to see you always so burning with energy, but your next book prepares for you some rude combats. It requires a bold courage to dare, when one is alone, to attack the monster, the new Minotaur, to which the entire world renders tribute: the Press." And the hostile reception given the book largely demonstrated how correct Sinclair and Rolland both were. Even though he was an extremely famous author, he could not find a publisher, so published it himself: and getting paper was a problem! When the book appeared, there were very few reviews. And paid advertisements were refused as well! A century after the book appeared, we n safely say that the media crisis has if anything only gotten worse.

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."

                  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]

"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."

                  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!

                  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!

                  The Iron Heel (1908) Wikipedia [Novel, set in Northern lifornia, and told from the perspective of centuries from now, of the social turmoil in the early part of the twentieth century and its culmination: "appalling alike to us who look back and to those that lived at the time, pitalism, rotten-ripe, sent forth that monstrous offshoot, the Oligarchy... a fact established in blood, a stupendous and awful reality." 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."

His account of the trial shows little respect for the justice system, and is a nicely written piece of mockery.

                  Wild is the River (1941) [Novel. The "river" of the title is the Mississippi, in New Orleans, where things are indeed wild, since it is no longer controlled by the Confederacy, but has fallen to the Union Army. Which does not mean that things have lmed down, either at the politil level or in the lives of those living in what is still a largely French-speaking city. The novel is quite a read! "It is entertaining, it has enormous gusto, swagger, voodoo mysteries, wonderful black women who devise love potions for good Amerin dollars, aristocratic Creoles, moonlight, fever, sultry heat... and lots and lots of sex."

                  Treasure Island (1883) Wikipedia [Unquestionably the most influential of Stevenson's works: to this day it continues to shape popular culture. It is written with marvellous grace and skill, and as to the plot, the action never stops! The period is the eighteenth century and the narrator is Jim Hawkins, whose father runs the Admiral Benbow inn, loted some distance west of Bristol in an isolated area. This isolation seems to delight "the brown old seaman with the sabre cut" who happens across the inn and becomes a long-term guest. But he is not entirely at ease even in this idyllic lotion, far removed from society: he pays Jim a silver fourpenny each month if he keeps his "weather-eye open for a seafaring man with one leg". Clearly their guest has a past, as becomes abundantly clear as the novel moves forward. Yes, there is definitely a treasure, and an island as well. The rest we leave to you to discover!] The University of Adelaide ebook includes a fine set of illustrations from 1915 by the Anglo-Amerin artist Louis Rhead (1857-1926) Wikipedia.] EPUB [University of Adelaide]

                  New Arabian Nights (1882) Wikipedia [Stevenson's first collection of stories, with a 1905 preface by Stevenson's widow, Frances ("Fanny") Van de Grift Stevenson (1840-1914) Wikipedia. The book contains two sets of stories, the very famous and often adapted The Suicide Club Wikipedia and The Rajah's Diamond Wikipedia. All of the stories first appeared in a magazine lled The London, which Fanny Stevenson described as "foredoomed to failure", since it was underfinanced. And indeed it only lasted from 1875 to 1879. But they were five glorious years! Stevenson's cousin, the art critic Robert Alan Mowbray Stevenson (1847-1900) Wikipedia, contributed to the stories in two ways. First, many of them originated from prolonged speculative discussions between the cousins. Second, "Whenever my husband wished to depict a romantic, erratic, engaging character, he delved into the rich mine of his cousin's personality. Robert Alan served, not only for the young man with the cream tarts [at the start of The Suicide Club], but as Paul Somerset in The Dynamiter and appeared in certain phases of Prince Otto [Stevenson's 1885 novel]." The stories are full of action, and take place in a Victorian universe not so very different from that of Sherlock Holmes: hardly a coincidence, since Stevenson and Arthur Conan Doyle, Sherlock Holmes' creator, were fellow Scotsmen who knew each other, and who both attended the University of Edinburgh!] EPUB [University of Adelaide]

                  Travels with a Donkey in the Cévennes (1879) Wikipedia [Really, a road movie in book form. In the latter part of 1878 Stevenson spent a month in Le Monastier, a small town (smaller now than when Stevenson visited it) in a remote part of central France. But he was not there specifilly to see Le Monastier, but to prepare for a twelve-day trip through the rugged and desolate Cévennes mountains. He chose a strange time of year for this challenging expedition, namely October, with summer a fading memory. And the terrain was difficult: "It was like the worst of the Scottish Highlands, only worse; cold, naked, and ignoble, snt of wood, snt of heather, snt of life." This naturally raises the question of why Stevenson would want to make such a trip, to which he replies, "For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake." But his account of this trip is fascinating, and remains famous to this day. And few transient visitors have had such an effect on the place they visited: the route he took is known to this day as the Chemin de Stevenson! fr.wikipedia] EPUB [University of Adelaide]

                  A Christmas rol (1843) Wikipedia [Or, to give its full title, A Christmas rol in Prose. Being A Ghost Story of Christmas. 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!

                  Edinburgh: Picturesque Notes (1878) Wikipedia [Stevenson's second book was an account of his native Edinburgh. But it is a balanced account of the city he knew, and while not lacking in praise of the city describes some of the city's less glamorous areas, and recounts some of its less illustrious historil moments. And is often very witty! The book is organized by city district, starting with the Old Town and ending in the Pentland Hills overlooking the south end of the city.

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.

                  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!

(As you might guess, Stevenson was vehemently opposed to the annexation of the Pacific islands, Samoa in particular, by the colonial powers.)

It was first published in Lippincott's Magazine as The Sign of the Four, which seems to be the standard form used these days, but it was first published in book form as The Sign of Four. Be that as it may, the story begins when Miss Mary Morstan visits 221B Baker Street to consult Sherlock Holmes on the mysterious disappearance of her father some years before, and the strange events which followed, which seem to be linked to her father's military service in India. All this, of course, is masterfully resolved by Mr Sherlock Holmes with the able assistance of Dr Watson.] EPUB [University of Adelaide]

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. They are introduced, and agree to save money by sharing lodgings.

George Orwell delivers his very serious message with his typil energy, clarity, and indeed brilliance. "Nationalism is power-hunger tempered by self-deception. Every nationalist is pable of the most flagrant dishonesty, but he is also -- since he is conscious of serving something bigger than himself -- unshakeably certain of being in the right...

                  2020/10/16: IN 1911, FOUR YEARS AFTER "THE SECRET AGENT", JOSEPH CONRAD PUBLISHED "UNDER WESTERN EYES", A NOVEL DEALING WITH CONSPIRACY, ASSASSINATION, AND POLITICS, TAKING PLACE IN ST PETERSBURG AND GENEVA.

                  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]

                  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.]

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!

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]
                  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..."

                  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. It is quite different from Conrad's earlier novels of seafaring, and instead deals with the very modern world of espionage, conspiracy, and police surveillance -- with a good dose of incompetence mixed in.

                  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]
                  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. The story is set in Italy at the very end of the Napoleonic wars, and features the young Englishman Cosmo Latham, who at the novel's opening is just arriving in Genoa, not so very far from the former emperor's place of exile, Elba.

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!

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.

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." 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]

The setting once again, is Adelaide; there are murders, several of them; the mysterious red paste comes from Colombo (Sri Lanka), where it is used by tiger hunters "before they go into the jungle after tigers, and it makes a man afraid of nothing in the world." Gask "has a sense of style, and of humour," commented The Register, an Adelaide newspaper (30 November 1923). "This is distinctly a book to be read."] 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.

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.

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.

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.

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]

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.

                  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]
                  The Sea-Wolf (1904) Wikipedia [Novel. The "sea-wolf" of the title is not an actual wolf, such as n be found in the other works of Jack London, but ptain Wolf Larsen, ptain of a schooner which scours the North Pacific hunting seals. When in San Francisco Bay he rescues Humphrey "Hump" Van Weyden, a young man who is wealthy by inheritance, from the shipwreck in the San Francisco fog of a ferry on its way from Sausalito to the city. The Martinez does not drop Van Weyden off at San Francisco, but continues the voyage it has started. There is much conflict between the two men, and Larsen certainly has the more powerful position, but he is more complited than at first appears.] EPUB [University of Adelaide]
                  White Fang (1906) Wikipedia [Novel, the classic sequel to The ll of the Wild, to which it bears many resemblances, except the title character is not a domestic dog that heads to Northern nada and joins a pack of wolves, but a wolf-dog hybrid born wild in Northern nada near the Mackenzie River, who is gradually domestited, and goes on some very long travels, first to the Yukon, and then to the south.] EPUB [University of Adelaide]
                  The Iron Heel (1908) Wikipedia [Novel, set in Northern lifornia, and told from the perspective of centuries from now, of the social turmoil in the early part of the twentieth century and its culmination: "appalling alike to us who look back and to those that lived at the time, pitalism, rotten-ripe, sent forth that monstrous offshoot, the Oligarchy... a fact established in blood, a stupendous and awful reality." 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]
                  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]

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."

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 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.

                  The Brass Check. A Study of Amerin Journalism. (1920) Wikipedia [In 1920 Upton Sinclair published his brilliant analysis of Amerin journalism, which he considered to be dangerously hostile to the Amerin public: "During the war our industrial autocracy has learned to organize for propaganda; it has learned the arts of hate. Today all the energies which were directed against the Kaiser have been turned against the radils; also the spy-system which the government developed for the war has been turned against the radils." The preface by Romain Rolland (1866-1944) [Nobel Prize for Literature, 1915] showed his understanding of the position Sinclair found himself in: "I am happy to see you always so burning with energy, but your next book prepares for you some rude combats. It requires a bold courage to dare, when one is alone, to attack the monster, the new Minotaur, to which the entire world renders tribute: the Press." And the hostile reception given the book largely demonstrated how correct Sinclair and Rolland both were. Even though he was an extremely famous author, he could not find a publisher, so published it himself: and getting paper was a problem! When the book appeared, there were very few reviews. And paid advertisements were refused as well! A century after the book appeared, we n safely say that the media crisis has if anything only gotten worse. Sinclair's continuing importance was recognized in the 2020 Netflix film Mank, in which Bill Nye plays Sinclair: it was nominated for no fewer than six Golden Globes!] Project Gutenberg US [PGUS #64657]
                  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]
                  Oil! (1927) Wikipedia [Novel, written and published by Sinclair shortly after his arrival in lifornia, and described by its author as "a picture of civilization in Southern lifornia, as the writer has observed it during eleven years' residence. The picture is the truth, and the great mass of detail actually exists." As the novel opens, James Arnold Ross and his son James Arnold Ross Jr ("Bunny") are headed to "Beach City". It is the height of the oil boom, and Ross Sr is interested in acquiring an oil property. The novel skilfully combines family sagas (the wealthier the family, the more prone it is to conflict) with an analysis of how the oil business actually works.

In the latter part of 1878 Stevenson spent a month in Le Monastier, a small town (smaller now than when Stevenson visited it) in a remote part of central France. But he was not there specifilly to see Le Monastier, but to prepare for a twelve-day trip through the rugged and desolate Cévennes mountains. He chose a strange time of year for this challenging expedition, namely October, with summer a fading memory. And the terrain was difficult: "It was like the worst of the Scottish Highlands, only worse; cold, naked, and ignoble, snt of wood, snt of heather, snt of life." This naturally raises the question of why Stevenson would want to make such a trip, to which he replies, "For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake." But his account of this trip is fascinating, and remains famous to this day. And few transient visitors have had such an effect on the place they visited: the route he took is known to this day as the Chemin de Stevenson! fr.wikipedia] EPUB [University of Adelaide]
                  New Arabian Nights (1882) Wikipedia [Stevenson's first collection of stories, with a 1905 preface by Stevenson's widow, Frances ("Fanny") Van de Grift Stevenson (1840-1914) Wikipedia. The book contains two sets of stories, the very famous and often adapted The Suicide Club Wikipedia and The Rajah's Diamond Wikipedia. All of the stories first appeared in a magazine lled The London, which Fanny Stevenson described as "foredoomed to failure", since it was underfinanced. And indeed it only lasted from 1875 to 1879. But they were five glorious years! Stevenson's cousin, the art critic Robert Alan Mowbray Stevenson (1847-1900) Wikipedia, contributed to the stories in two ways. First, many of them originated from prolonged speculative discussions between the cousins. Second, "Whenever my husband wished to depict a romantic, erratic, engaging character, he delved into the rich mine of his cousin's personality. Robert Alan served, not only for the young man with the cream tarts [at the start of The Suicide Club], but as Paul Somerset in The Dynamiter and appeared in certain phases of Prince Otto [Stevenson's 1885 novel]." The stories are full of action, and take place in a Victorian universe not so very different from that of Sherlock Holmes: hardly a coincidence, since Stevenson and Arthur Conan Doyle, Sherlock Holmes' creator, were fellow Scotsmen who knew each other, and who both attended the University of Edinburgh!] EPUB [University of Adelaide]

                  Treasure Island (1883) Wikipedia [Unquestionably the most influential of Stevenson's works: to this day it continues to shape popular culture. It is written with marvellous grace and skill, and as to the plot, the action never stops! The period is the eighteenth century and the narrator is Jim Hawkins, whose father runs the Admiral Benbow inn, loted some distance west of Bristol in an isolated area. This isolation seems to delight "the brown old seaman with the sabre cut" who happens across the inn and becomes a long-term guest. But he is not entirely at ease even in this idyllic lotion, far removed from society: he pays Jim a silver fourpenny each month if he keeps his "weather-eye open for a seafaring man with one leg". Clearly their guest has a past, as becomes abundantly clear as the novel moves forward. Yes, there is definitely a treasure, and an island as well.

                  Strange se of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde (1886) Wikipedia [Novel (the title as given by Stevenson does indeed omit "The", although it shows up in many later editions, including the Adelaide ebook), written as a straight narrative, but then rewritten after discussions with his wife Fanny, all of this at great speed, especially considering that Stevenson was sick in bed at the time. As to the novel, "Jekyll and Hyde" has long since entered the English language as a phrase meaning the quite different good and evil aspects that n be observed in a single person in when social situations change.

                  Kidnapped (1886) Wikipedia [Historil novel, loosely based on real events, set in Scotland in the aftermatch of Bonnie Prince Charlie's unsuccessful attempt in 1745 to restore the Stuart monarchy. Perhaps the best summary is that provided by Stevenson himself in his full title for the book: "Kidnapped. Being memoirs of the adventures of David Balfour in the year 1751. How he was kidnapped and st away; his sufferings in a desert isle; his journey in the wild Highlands; his acquaintance with Alan Breck Stewart and other notorious Highland Jacobites; with all that he suffered at the hands of his uncle, Ebenezer Balfour of Shaws, falsely so lled." If Treasure Island is Stevenson's most popular adventure novel, surely Kidnapped is a very close second. The University of Adelaide EPUB we offer includes the 1905 preface by Stevenson's widow, Frances ("Fanny") Van de Grift Stevenson (1840-1914) Wikipedia, explaining how the novel me to be written, and the interest it aroused ("For several years my husband received letters of expostulation or commendation from members of the mpbell and Stewart clans.")]

                  The Ebb-Tide (1894) Wikipedia [Stevenson's final complete novel, written in collaboration with his Amerin stepson Lloyd Osbourne (1868-1947) Wikipedia, who at the time was living in Samoa with his mother and stepfather. The novel is very far from being an idyllic portrayal of life in the South Seas, as n be seen from its opening sentence: "Throughout the island world of the Pacific, sttered men of many European races and from almost every grade of society rry activity and disseminate disease." (As you might guess, Stevenson was vehemently opposed to the annexation of the Pacific islands, Samoa in particular, by the colonial powers.) If the ocsion demanded Stevenson could write for children, and write very well. But he was definitely an author for adults, and a very great one: his reputation has never faded.] EPUB [University of Adelaide]
                  In the South Seas (1896) [Travel memoirs, posthumously published, "being an account of experiences and observations in the Marquesas, Paumotus and Gilbert Islands in the course of two cruises on the yacht "sco" (1888) and the schooner "Equator" (1889)". These two voyages led to a third, with Stevenson eventually moving to Samoa, where he stayed for the rest of his life. Clearly he had liked what he saw during the first two voyages! The Marquesas Islands are a very remote part of French Polynesia, about 1400 kilometres northeast of Tahiti; the Tuamotu Archipelago, as it is now lled, is a huge archipelago in French Polynesia, northeast of Tahiti. The Gilbert Islands today form part of the independent republic of Kiribati (a name derived from "Gilbert"), situated at the midpoint between Papua New Guinea and Hawaii. Stevenson's arrival in the Gilberts was no mere visit by an outsider, but a historil event of considerable importance: the ninetieth anniversary of his arrival was chosen as the day when Kiribati formally me into being as an independent republic! So these memoirs are not only fine writing, but an important historil source. Entertainment plus instruction equals ideal recreational reading -- enjoy!] EPUB [University of Adelaide]
