Description

The Lonely Sea. Collected Short Stories. You can imagine just how it was. There were only the four of us there-Eachan, Torry Mor, old Grant, and myself.

The Lonely Sea. Talk? Never a word among the lot of us, nor even the heart of a dram-and there on the table, was a new bottle of Talisker, and Eachan not looking for a penny. We just sat there like a lot of stookies, Seumas Grant with his expressionless face and yon wicked old pipe of his bubbling away, and the rest of us desperately busy with studying the pattern of the wallpaper. Listening to the screech of the wind, we were, and the hail like chuckies battering against the windows of the hotel.

Alistair Stuart MacLean (Scottish Gaelic: Alasdair MacGill-Eain; 21 April 1922 – 2 February 1987) was a Scottish novelist who wrote popular thrillers and adventure stories. His works include The Guns of Navarone, Ice Station Zebra and Where Eagles Dare – all three were made into popular films. He also wrote two novels under the pseudonym Ian Stuart. His books are estimated to have sold over 150 million copies, making him one of the best-selling fiction authors of all time.

But between these two vast areas, along the belt of the Arctic Circle itself, lie the most bitter seas in the world: and no part of it more bitter, more hostile to man and the puny ships that carry him across the savagery of its galetorn waters than that narrow stretch of ocean between Iceland and Greenland that men call the Denmark Strait.

Amazing collections of short stories related to the sea. There are heroes, spies, fools, traitors, clowns, and everything Alistair MacLean, author of The Guns of Navarone, can throw at you. I was astonished at Alistair Maclean's command of the English language, even including some Scots. Most pulp writers can manage to connect two sentences. Mr. Maclean is a virtuoso crafting marvelously intricate stories. No wonder his works were made into some of the finest action movies of the later 20th century. He has you dangling with each mystery and strange story.

This is McClean's original collection of short stories. They make an interesting and informative introduction into his more serious works. I recommend reading them before undertaking any of his novels.

Great collection of Alistair MacLean short stories. If you've never read this author, this gives the feel of his writing. He is one of the great action/suspense authors of all time (in my opinion).
