The fog had begun to thin somewhat by the time that Sandsley got close to the harbor. Why it should lift now was none of his concern; the main point was that he could see further now, and what he could see was a barricade across the road. So much for that plan, then, and immediately turned on his he...

Sandsley stopped for a moment, trying again to find some sort of bearing. He felt the wind at his back; judging from the direction he had to be facing the harbor, and, if his guess was correct, on a main road, else there wouldn't be much but a trickle of breeze through the twisting nest of buildings...

Manchuria, 1907

The fog could, at the least, be said to be oppressive. If one were to be inclined to hyperbole, it was all-consuming. Regardless of the names applied to it, this was certainly a different fog. It had settled over the city of Dalian sometime around three in the afternoon, by most people's reckonings;...
