Life in the Soudan:Adventures Amongst the Tribes, and Travels in Egypt, in 1881 and 1882

Cate: Classical Novels  Author:novel 

The Soudan, two years ago, was a name unknown to the million, and I will venture to say that at that time not one in fifty knew anything about it. Only those who could afford to obtain Sir Samuel Baker’s interesting and instructive work, “The Nile Sources of Abyssinia,” would be acquainted with the locality and other particulars.

Lanagan; Amateur Detective

Cate: Short Stories  Author:novel 

JACK LANAGAN of the San Francisco Enquirer was conceded to have “arrived” as the premier police reporter of San Francisco.

Life of Robert Browning

Cate: Short Stories  Author:novel 

In all important respects I leave this volume to speak for itself. For obvious reasons it does not pretend to be more than a Mémoire pour servir: in the nature of things, the definitive biography cannot appear for many years to come. None the less gratefully may I take the present opportunity to express my indebtedness to Mr. R. Barret...

Little Brother

Cate: Classical Novels  Author:novel 

I wrote Little Brother in a white-hot fury between May 7, 2007 and July 2,2007: exactly eight weeks from the day I thought it up to the day I fin-ished it (Alice, to whom this book is dedicated, had to put up with meclacking out the final chapter at 5AM in our hotel in Rome, where wewere celebrating our anniversary). I'd always dreamed...

Lucian the dreamer

Cate: Classical Novels  Author:novel 

The railway station stood in the midst of an apparent solitude, and from its one long platform there was no sign of any human habitation. A stranger, looking around him in passing that way, might well have wondered why a station should be found there at all; nevertheless, the board which figured prominently above the white palings sugg...
