White Seahorse Classics
White Seahorse Publishing is pleased to bring you a collection of classic novels and texts we like to read. They are certain to interest anyone with a taste for literature, or wishing to build a library of classical works from a wide range of authors. We are doing this to provide a service to anyone, including ourselves, who likes to read a book while actually flipping the pages.

A Classic is a book that has never finished saying what it has to say
No, we are as yet not producing Kindle versions of these titles. Digital versions (pfd, html, e-pub and kindle) of the titles we are bringing out are available free on Project Gutenberg. At some point in the future we may do our own digital e-books, if we get requests. They would then be based on the reformatted and cleaned up files we have created.
This White Seahorse Imprint series is also intended to be a resource make finding such titles in one place easier.
You will note that our pricing is kept very low - in fact it is just marginally above the actual printing cost. 20% of this margin goes to Project Gutenberg (R), where an ever increasing number of classical books are being digitized. The balance goes towards our own production work.
Our books are all produced in the standard 5 inch x 8 inch pocket book format, so that they are easy to take along for a read at the beach, on a plane, train or anywhere you may be. The covers are all uniform, so that they will look good together as a series on your library shelf.
James Augustine Aloysius Joyce (2 February 1882 – 13 January 1941) was an Irish novelist and poet. He contributed to the modernist avant-garde, and is regarded as one of the most influential and important authors of the twentieth century.
Joyce is best known for Ulysses (1922), a landmark work in which the episodes of Homer's Odyssey are paralleled in an array of contrasting literary styles, perhaps most prominent among these the stream of consciousness technique he utilized. Other well-known works are the short-story collection Dubliners (1914), and the novels A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (1916) and Finnegans Wake (1939). His other writings include three books of poetry, a play, occasional journalism, and his published letters.
