Begumbagh

by George Manville Fenn

Most of the book is taken up with a story about the plight of the British members of a small garrison, during the Indian Mutiny.

The second story is about half as long, and is a well-written and extremely plausible story about a house owned by an old gentleman, where there is a collection of gold plate said to be an "incubus", that is, the subject of a curse. The third story is about a couple of smugglers who get trapped in a"gowt",-- an exit to the sea from one of the great land-drains ofEastern England, constructed by the great Dutch engineer Vandermuydenin the seventeenth century.The last story is about a new and well-found ship that nearlyfounders in an Atlantic storm. The captain takesto the bottle, and command is passed to a junior officer.

Author of the Day

George A. Santino
From a very young age, George A. Santino realized that if you wanted something, you had to work for it - even if that meant digging for soda bottles in trash cans. This attitude got him far in life - he received four rejections from Microsoft before they employed him in an entry level position. Years later, he made partner and managed to retire at age 55. As our author of the day, Santino tells us more about his autobiography and what it takes to get back up in life.
