Welcome

to the homepage of William Clark Russell, 19th century anglo/american writer of sea yarns.

And why create at site in honor of some long dead and to some extent forgotten writer?

Well - ever since I read a Clark Russell novel for the first time - around the age of ten; it was a danish edition of “The Tragedy of Ida Noble” - I've regarded mr. Russell as one of the truly great adventure authors. To me, he is in the same league as Jules Verne, Capt. Marryat and the like - authors, that nowadays mostly are published as heavily abridged children's books (but whose production originally wasn't really aimed at children …)

So, when I started my ebook publishing venture, it felt natural to have a Clark Russell work among the first of my editions. Along the way, I've compiled a fairly complete list of his works, both in the original english and the danish/scandinavian editions. I've also collected various pictures of mr. Russell and - with some effort, and the invaluable help of mr. John Addy, secretary of the Conan Doyle Society in London, and a great connaisseur of Clark Russell - some biographical facts.

This material now forms the core of this site - The William Clark Russell Site.

Enjoy! - and feel free to comment the site via the Contact page.
