Sir Thomas Henry Hall Caine CH, KBE (), usually known as Hall Caine, was a British author. He is best known as a novelist and playwright of the late Victorian and the Edwardian eras/5.   In Genesis , we read that Cain left the presence of God and he built a city. After murdering his brother who was a true worshipper of God, Cain was placed under a curse. This text tells us that Cain a man placed under a curse built a city without the help of God, without the input of God, without the power of God, without the purpose of God. The city of Cain was founded upon the blood of Abel, crying out for vengeance from the ground (Gen. ). But the city we await, the city of the living God, is founded upon a “blood that speaks more graciously than the blood of Abel” (Heb. ), speaking a word, not of vengeance, but forgiveness and resurrection.   This novella, Amanda in the City, is the first of 's Lunchtime Erotica books, a collection of stories issued in a convenient pocket-book format, ideal for quiet reading over lunch or during a coffee break. An e-book edition is also available: The Floating World - Urban Erotica.

  So begins Cain's Book, Alexander Trocchi's incredible novel of existential dread. Young Adam, its predecessor, is better known, but the latter is the "Scottish Beat's" classic.   And Cain went out from the presence of the Lord, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden. And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and he builded a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch.(Genesis ) The story of Cain;.
