Queed
Harrison, Henry Sydnor
Houghton Mifflin USA 1911 3rd Impression

Harrison's other novels include VV's Eyes (1913), Angela's Business (1915), and Andrew Bride of Paris (1925). reader comment >> He's often referred to as a social critic, but the plain fact is that he was a delightful storyteller: the reason this novel, "Queed," was so well received is that it's a joy to read. . . .& this very affirmative review "The novel has a fantastic cast of well developed characters, including one of the oddest heroes you'll ever meet. The wry language of the author is a treat throughout the novel as he goes off on various interesting tangents about journalism, social causes, and the post-war South. I had no idea what the book was about when I picked it up and I could barely put it down once I did." Certainly seems a great adition to your shelves.  Very Good-good/No Jacket

She began writing at 17 and produced over 300 books in her lifetime, being so prolific that not less than eleven new titles under her byline appeared in the first few years after her death.

Le Gallienne, Richard
The Children's Press UK

First published in 1918, Pieces of Eight is a work of fiction that purports to be "the authentic narrative of a treasure discovered in the Bahama Islands in 1903." According to one early reviewer, it is "A polite treasure hunt which, compared to R L Stevenson's handling of the same plot lacks the thrills of real buccaneering, but which is romantic and beautifully descriptive of the tropic Bahamas." 256 crisp pp, gift inscription 1st p, unclipped dj  Very Good/Good

Narziss and Goldmund
Hesse, Herman
Penguin  1973 
 Paperback 301pp review >>> Having read all of Hesse works, I find them all fascinating and profound, but none more so than Narcissus and Goldmund. This masterpiece explores the balance between living for yourself and living for others. These two characters and how they relate and understand the other is just beyond words. I first read this book in High School and over the next 20 years have re-read it many times. It never grows old as it invokes our innermost desires and failures. Do miss out on this great read. overview Goldmund is obviously the possible, and Narziss the actual. Protagonist and intime are yet another variation of Hesse's customary double self-projection: Goldmund is the ingratiat-ing artist-voluptuary he would have liked to be, and Narziss is the re-tiring thinker-ascetic he knew himself to be. Contrary to the implications of the title, the novel is not a balanced recounting of the lives of two protagonists, nor was it ever intended to be. From its inception, the story was to be Goldmund's. A would-be monk & a monk for sure, one turns out to travel life's pleasurable roads, one sticks to his vocation.  Good/None issued

Everyman for Himself
Bainbridge, Beryl
Duckworth UK 1996 
 Hardcover 224 perfect white pp hold the plot of this novel & if after reading you're inclined to a more detailed look at the ship herself we have several books along those lines & even a "Titanic Lifeboat Crew" t-shirt! review >>> This was simply brilliant. The writing was so powerful I had tears in my eys at the end. I thought the plot was very clever. Frequently (but not too frequently) it foreshadowed the end, but in a subtle and poignant way. The characters were also very well described, but I think it was the way that she structured the plot that really made this stand out for me.   Excellent/Very Good

Devil’s Gate
Cussler, Clive & Brown, Graham
Michael Joseph Penguin  2011 
 Hardcover Plot >>> A Japanese cargo ship cruises the eastern Atlantic near the Azores- when it bursts into flames. A gang of pirates speeds to take advantage of the disaster-when their boat explodes. What is happening in this part of the world? As Kurt Austin, Joe Zavala, and the rest of the NUMA Special Assignments Team rush to investigate, they find themselves drawn into the extraordinary ambitions of an African dictator, the creation of a weapon of almost mythical power, and an unimaginably audacious plan to extort the world's major nations. The penalty for refusal? The destruction of their greatest cities. Filled with the high-stakes suspense and boundless invention unique to Cussler, Devil's Gate is one of the most thrilling novels yet from the grand master of adventure. review >>> "Devil's Gate" begins with the requisite prologue, set on the tarmac in Santa Maria, the Azores in 1951..a mysterious Russian passenger and his luggage are being spirited to the U.S. by an American pilot named Hudson. The passenger is shot before he can reboard the plane and is left for dead. Hudson is also hit and the "Connie" he's flying goes down in the Atlantic. If you are familiar with the Cussler template, you know this incident will eventually intrude on present-day events. If you're a high-adventure enthusiast, give Cussler and Brown a nod. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised with this new-look addition to the NUMA Files. Book is in great shape 474pp & 800g packed for post  Very Good/Very Good
