I'm back, mostly. . .

It's been awhile since my last post here.  I guess it was an unplanned but necessary vacation.  I expect to be back with a few posts shortly. 

Right now I'm reading Joseph Conrad's "Captain Lingard" trilogy, something I didn't know existed until a fellow member of a discussion group brought it up.  The three novels and their publication dates are

The Rescue  (1920)

An Outcast of the Islands  (1896)

Almayer's Folly  (1895)

The titles are listed in chronological order, but the publishing order is the reverse.  The first book published was Almayer's Folly, but it is the story of Capt.  Lingard years after the events of The Rescue and An Outcast of the Islands..  

I don't know if there are any short stories featuring Lingard, but if I do discover some, I will post it here.


  1. Fred,

    So glad to see you are back! Vacations are necessary, and I hope yours was relaxing.

  2. Cheryl,

    Thanks for the welcome. The break was mostly successful.

  3. Seconding what Cheryl said. It's always good to see something new from you.

  4. Richard,

    Thanks for the kind words.
