It's 1941, and Captain Alexander M. Riley and his crew of deep-sea treasure hunters believe they're setting off on yet another adventure--to find a mysterious artifact off the coast of Morocco for an enigmatic millionaire with questionable motives. Part-time smugglers, world travelers, and expats who have fought causes both valiant and doomed, Riley and his crew soon find themselves in the crosshairs of a deal much more dangerous than the one they bargained for. From Spain to Morocco to an Atlantic crossing that leads to Washington, DC, Captain Riley must sail his ship, the Pingarrón, straight through the eye of a ruthless squall and into a conspiracy that goes by the name Operation Apokalypse--a storm that only he and his crew can navigate.

NO-MAN'S-LAND takes place at the end of August of 1937, in the days prior to the Battle of Belchite in the Spanish Civil War, but is in no way a novel of war.It is a thrilling tale of adventure full of humor, starring Alex Riley and his loyal friend Joaqu�n Alc�ntara, volunteers in the Lincoln Batallion, who unintentionally find themselves mixed up in a daring rescue mission under the very noses of Franco's Army.The episode I describe in this book took place a few years before the events described in the novel Captain Riley, and is one of those stories usually told by the fireside or at the end of a long evening, with a glass in one hand and one's gaze lost somewhere in memory.The story of NO-MAN'S-LAND could be called a novella, or perhaps a long short story (180 pages, you can be the judge of that), which does not require you to have read Captain Riley in order to enjoy it. A story filled with action, humor and a few added drops of love, which you might find hard to tear yourself away from at night so as to go to sleep.Well, reader-friend, I think this is all I had to say. I hope you enjoy the adventure, and that this will just be one more of the many journeys we will share from now on.

In this series, William Dean Howells delightfully describes the early years of his life, in the "Boy's Town” of Ohio, the state where he was born and raised. These stories remain as a vivid autobiographical records and colorful images of a life in the mid-nineteenth century American town. Extract: "If there was any fellow in the Boy's Town fifty years ago who had a good reason to run off it was Pony Baker. Pony was not his real name; it was what the boys called him, because there were so many fellows who had to be told apart, as Big Joe and Little Joe, and Big John and Little John, and Big Bill and Little Bill, that they got tired of telling boys apart that way; and after one of the boys called him Pony Baker, so that you could know him from his cousin Frank Baker, nobody ever called him anything else.” William Dean Howells (1837-1920) was an American realist author, literary critic, and playwright. Nicknamed "The Dean of American Letters", he was particularly known for his tenure as editor of the Atlantic Monthly as well as his own prolific writings, including the Christmas story "Christmas Every Day", and the novels The Rise of Silas Lapham and A Traveler from Altruria. Howells is known to be the father of American realism, and a denouncer of the sentimental novel. He was the first American author to bring a realist aesthetic to the literature of the United States. His stories of Boston upper crust life set in the 1850s are highly regarded among scholars of American fiction.

Listed by Abraham Lincoln, alongside the Bible and Pilgrim's Progress, as one of the books that most influenced his life, few true tales of adventure and survival are as astonishing as this one. Shipwrecked off the western coast of North Africa in August of 1815, James Riley and his crew had no idea of the trials awaiting them as they gathered their beached belongings. They would be captured by a band of nomadic Arabs, herded across the Sahara Desert, beaten, forced to witness astounding brutalities, sold into slavery, and starved. Riley watched most of his crew die one by one, killed off by cruelty or caprice, as his own weight dropped from 240 pounds to a mere 90 at his rescue. First published in 1817, this dramatic saga soon became a national bestseller with over a million copies sold. Even today, it is rare to find a narrative that illuminates the degradations of slave existence with such brutal honesty.
