Excerpt

As Nações, humas já quebráram as algemas
do despotismo, outras não tardaram a erguer
o grito da Liberdade; porque, aquellas
desesperáram de se salvar, estas estam a beber
as ultimas gotas do fel da tyrannia. Por toda
a parte se alevantam os Povos contra a execravel
imbecillidade dos reis e a maldita hypocrisia
dos sacerdotes. Tão iniqua ha sido a
crueldade dos principes e dos frades contra a
especie humana, que esta se decidio em fim
a sacudir, de viva força, o jugo de ferro que
por tantos seculos lhes havia pesado. He já
tempo que nós Portuguezes conheçamos a futilidade
das illusões com que os nossos avós
nos embaláram. Risquemos para sempre da memoria
esses ridiculos preconceitos de que nos
fartou a superstição, com o perfido intuito de
mais a seu salvo nos envilecer. Eia. ...Leamos
com attenção a excellente Epistola do nosso
grande poeta Bocage, que tanto abunda em
salutares preceitos de moral sublime.

David is not only the author of numerous novels and short stories, but also runs his own print, digital and audio publishing company. This makes him a busy man indeed, but we did manage to catch up with him to find out more about his novel, Nevermore, his fascination with history and some of his most unique travel experiences.
