With an Introduction and Notes by Hugh Epstein, Secretary of the Joseph Conrad Society of Great Britain 'Then the vision of an enormous town prented itself, of a monstrous town...a cruel devourer of the world's light. There was room enough there to place any story, depth enough for any passion, variety enough there for any setting, darkness enough to bury five millions of lives.' Conrad's 'monstrous town' is London, and his story of espionage and counter-espionage, anarchists and embassies, is a detective story that becomes the story of Winnie Verloc's tenacity in maintaining her devotion to her peculiar and simple-minded brother, Stevie, as they pursue their very ordinary lives above a rather dubious shop in the back streets of Soho. AUTHOR: Born Jozef Teodor Konrad Nalecz Korzeniowski in Poland in 1857, Conrad served in the British Merchant Service (1878-94), travelling to Africa, Australia, India, Indonesia and the Orient, becoming a British citizen in 1886. Turning to full-time writing in 1894, his years at sea featured heavily in his early works. His novels, such as 'Lord Jim', and his novella 'Heart of Darkness' (on which the film 'Apocalypse Now' was based) have brought him an enduring reputation.
You may have heard of people wanting to write letters or text their younger or future self, but Ginny Mathews never imagined she'd be able to travel back in time to actually visit her 18-year-old self. Now, as a 60-year-old woman, time travel has become commercialized and available to anyone who wants to change their life - for a price. Follow Ginny on her wild ride to the past as she discovers just how much she's willing to sacrifice - to have the life she's always dreamed of. (Ginny's Sacrifice - A Time Travel Novella, is centered around Ginny's adventure - very light romance.)
