The sea lady - PDF novel by H. G. Wells

The sea lady -  a tissue of moonshine


The sea lady
The sea lady


Review by Ivan:
Another gem from the master. Great passages of brilliant prose. It starts as a comedy of manners with elements of fantasy - there's a mermaid. 
Then it gets darker as we come to suspect the sea lady's motives...why did she come, what does she mean to do....how will this end. You'll have to read it to find out. 
This really should be better known. It came during the master's peak period between 1895 and 1905. Place this with the best of his work.
