[Least-aspected Mercury]  

As a brain merchant I was a success.
–Jack London.

Jack always claimed that he wrote as he spoke, straight from the shoulder. His stories did, indeed, have strength of style and speed of action like a combination of punches. However incredible the plot, he wrote with such a pace and such controlled use of simple words that his readers could not put his books down, even when they did not believe what he was saying.
–Andrew Sinclair, Jack. A Biography of Jack London.

Jack London

The author of numerous Klondike tales such as The Son of the Wolf: Tales of the Far North (1900); Call of the Wild (1903; considered his masterpiece); and White Fang (1906), Jack London’s Primary Mercury was located precisely over the Klondike in its vertical, Tran­scendental Midheaven position. His influential experiences there included working as a gold-seeker during the first Klondike gold rush.
        London’s “passionate and adventurous life­style” (Secondary Mars) forms the basis of numerous “action and adventure / stories” (Secondary Mars / Primary Mercury). Their “strength of style [ / ] and speed of action”1 is symbolized by this Mars / Mercury Transcendental pairing. London’s “ardent and ambitious pursuit / of learning the craft of writing” (Secondary Mars / Primary Mercury)–a task he pursued with great “determination” (Mars) even while facing considerable difficulties–is portrayed in his quasi-biographical novel, Martin Eden (1909).
