Reading: Stephen Crane 1871-1900

"The Bride Comes to Yellow Sky"
"Open Boat"

Writing more than 100 years ago and yet his writing is straight forward, fresh, lacks the flowery overindulgence of adjectives, the overblown melodrama I might have expected.
And his endings...
Went out and bought everything I could find.
