Almayer's Folly

by Joseph Conrad

This is a decidedly powerful story of an uncommon type, and breaks fresh ground in fiction.... All the leading characters in the book--Almayer, his wife, his daughter, and Dain, the daughter's native lover--are well drawn, and the parting between father and daughter has a pathetic naturalness about it, unspoiled by straining after effect. (Conrad's first novel.)

Author of the Day

WJ Lundy
As a still-serving military veteran, WJ Lundy has over 15 years of combined service with the Army and Navy in Europe, the Balkans and Southwest Asia. He is also the author of the very successful WTF series, in which Lundy applies his military experience to paint action-packed, realistic scenes in a post-apocalyptic world where zombies roam the lands. Today, Lundy chats with us about his Escape omnibus, how he wrote his first novel in a notebook in Afghanistan and why his zombies are scarier than most.
