Sabatini, Rafael: Casanova's Alibi v1 1 jan 2009
After a brief stint in the business world, Sabatini went to work as a writer. He wrote short stories in the 1890s, and his first novel came out in 1902. In 1905 he married Ruth Goad Dixon, the daughter of a Liverpool merchant. It took Sabatini roughly a quarter of a century of hard work before he attained success with Scaramouche in 1921. This brilliant novel of the French Revolution became an international best-seller. It was followed by the equally successful Captain Blood in 1922. All of his earlier books were rushed into reprints, the most popular of which was The Sea Hawk from 1915. Sabatini was a prolific writer; he produced a new book approximately every year. While he perhaps didn't achieve the mammoth success of Scaramouche and Captain Blood, nonetheless Sabatini still maintained a great deal of popularity with the reading public through the decades that followed. The public knew that in picking up a Sabatini book, they could always count upon a good read, and his following was loyal and extensive.
This compilation of Rafael Sabatini stories about Casanova has been posted to Project Gutenberg Australia.
The stories are:
The Augmentation of Mercury
The Priest of Mars
Under the Leads
The Night of Escape
The Rooks and the Hawk
The Polish Duel
The Alabaster Hand
PS: As I use a new method of assembling my books, the inline TOC on the IMP books is now after the book. As I do not possess a hardware reader, I do not know if there is an outline TOC. Please let me know if this is okay.
