The dystopian satire "A Clockwork Orange" is Burgess's most famous novel, though he dismissed it as one of his lesser works. It was adapted into a highly controversial 1971 film by Stanley Kubrick, which Burgess said was chiefly responsible for the popularity of the book. Burgess produced numerous other novels, including the Enderby quartet, and "Earthly Powers." He was a prominent critic, writing acclaimed studies of classic writers such as William Shakespeare, James Joyce, D. H. Lawrence and Ernest Hemingway. In 2008, The Times placed Burgess number 17 on their list of "The 50 greatest British writers since 1945". Burgess was an accomplished musician and linguist. He composed over 250 musical works, including a first symphony around age 18, wrote a number of libretti, and translated, among other works, Cyrano de Bergerac, Oedipus the King and Carmen.

Title: Danger Zone
Author: Raoul Whitfield - Raoul Falconia Whitfield was an American writer of hardboiled crime fiction.

Whitfield was born in New York in 1896. He spent part of his childhood in the Philippines with his father, the civil servant William H. Whitfield. In 1916, Whitfield fell ill and was returned to the U.S. for treatment. After recovering, Whitfield travelled to Hollywood and worked as a silent-film actor. Later, he joined the U.S. Air Force and served in the Flying Cadets in the last months of World War I.


Whitfield began writing for pulp magazines in 1924, and first appeared in Black Mask in 1926. Black Mask would become Whitfield's main market; the magazine's editor Joseph Shaw described Whitfield as a "hard, patient, determined worker." Whitfield became best known in the magazine for his stories about Jo Gar, a Filipino detective. These stories, set in the cosmopolitan boiling pot of inter-war Manila, were published collectively in 2002 as "Jo Gar's Casebook."

Whitfield befriended Dashiell Hammett during his tenure on the magazine.

In addition to Black Mask, Whitfield also wrote fiction for Adventure, Air Trails, War Stories, Battle Stories, Blue Book, Everybody's Magazine, Boys' Life and Breezy Stories.

Whitfield's debut novel, "Green Ice," was published in 1930. In the New York Evening Post, Hammett praised Green Ice: "Here are 280 pages of naked action pounded into tough compactness by staccato, hammerlike writing."

Whitfield ceased writing fiction and moved to Hollywood in the late 1930s. Although he was fairly wealthy, by the 1940s he had lost most of his money. Later, Whitfield contracted tuberculosis and had to be hospitalized. He died from the disease in January 1945.

Title: Favorite Flies and Their Histories
Author: Mary Orvis Marbury - Mary Orvis Marbury was the daughter of Charles F. Orvis, and the author of "Favorite Flies and Their Histories," the first standardized reference on American flies. In 1856, the year Mary was born, her father opened a tackle shop in Manchester VT, doing business over the counter and through the mail. The Orvis Company went on to shape American fly-fishing; it is now the oldest mail-order business in the United States.

In 1876, Mary took over the management of the company's fly tying studio. Determined to address the lack of standardization among fly patterns, Mary sent a questionnaire to customers and prominent anglers all over the United States, asking them to describe the flies and techniques they used. She compiled and edited more than 200 responses, and added her own commentary and 32 colored plates illustrating more than 300 flies.


"Favorite Flies and Their Histories" became a best seller among anglers after it appeared in 1892 and went through nine printings by 1896. (courtesy of the Albert R. Mann Library website)
