He is best remembered as a novelist who wrote numerous sea-stories and the historical novels known as the Leatherstocking Tales, featuring frontiersman Natty Bumppo. Among his most famous works is the Romantic novel The Last of the Mohicans, often regarded as his masterpiece.
As a teacher, speaker, and author I've listened to countless
grieving persons in the last twenty-five years. Most of what
I know about grieving I've learned from their stories. I've never
spoken to anyone who mourns for someone they love who does
not want to continue loving them in some way. Not knowing
how to continue to love brings great pain and anguish.
Recently a man came up to me at a conference to say, "I want you
to know how much I hated you years ago." I'd never been approached
quite like that before by someone with such gentle eyes. He seemed
as eager to explain as I...
The Last Bite Seren snagged her fishnet stocking on the buckles of her New Rock boots. She cursed under her breath as the fabric ripped, but where she was going no-one would notice one hole larger than the rest in her hosiery. She checked herself out in the mirror. She didn't look too bad at all. The eyeliner had gone on okay at the third attempt, more old school gothic than spooky kid. Her face was perfectly pale and her blood red lips were lined with black.

Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again. It seemed to me I stood by the iron gate leading to the drive, and for a while I could not enter, for the way was barred to me. There was a padlock and chain upon the gate. I called in my dream to the lodge-keeper, and had no answer, and peering closer through the rusted spokes of the gate I saw that the lodge was uninhabited. No smoke came from the chimney, and the little lattice windows gaped forlorn. Then, like all dreamers, I was possessed of a sudden with...

Iinflated a rubber balloon and set it adrift. The idea was that in free fall the balloon would drift slowly in the direction of the leak. This was the first thing I did after I had discovered the trouble. I mean it was the first action I took. I had been thinking about it for some time. I had been thinking about what a great distance it was from Pacific Grove, California to

Blue is one colour the Danube never manages. Slate grey, muddy brown, dirty rust, sweatstained khaki; all of these and most of the intermediate shades sabotage the dreams of any romantic who stands on her banks. Occasionally, where boats gather, she achieves a kind of oily radiance as the sun shimmers on a skin of spilled fuel, turning the river the iridescent hues of a pigeon's throat. On a dark night when clouds obscure the stars, she's as black as the Styx. But there, in central Europe at the turning of the new millennium, it cost rather more than...
To assess the issues and opportunities optical technologies and networks bring
to end-users, we invited six leading experts to our semiannual roundtable discussion,
scheduled for Sept. 11, during the Networld+Interop show in Atlanta.
Unfortunately, that give-and-take session had to be cancelled. In its place, we
created a virtual roundtable on “The Optical Last Mile,” with our original panel
of experts participating via e-mail, resulting in this interesting and informative
dialogue on the optical revolution....
