Short Story Collection

Winsome Winnie

Description: 

Winsome Winnie is written by Stephen Leacock. Burlesques in Mr. Leacock's particular vein, and though quite similar to others of his, they are quite irresistible in parts and provoke spontaneous laughter.

Price: $0.00

Waysiders

Description: 

Ten stories which give sympathetic glimpses of the gray lives of the peasants of Connaught. They are varied in content from the deep laid scheme which robs the store of Festus Clasby, the "perfectly wrought human casket," to the weird sketches of the Herd who has the blood of the white goat upon him, or the death bed of Kevin Hooban, the friend of the "Good People."

The Wagner Story Book

Description: 

"The story of the Knight of the Swan, of the Ring of the Nibelungen, the Search for the Grail, of Lohengrin and of Parsifal, are among the richest and deepest of the great mediæval stories. They are pre-eminently the natural food for children of imagination, and in this volume these stories are retold in a very effective way."

Vrouw Grobelaar and Her Leading Cases

In this new volume of tales the author "deals with the back-world of Boer superstition, the kind of story we may believe to be told round winter fires on lonely farms.

Violists

Description: 

Violists is written by Richard McGowan. Somewhere out there on The Net, I hope there is a solitary reader settled comfortably in a warm study with a nice cup of tea. Perhaps the lights are out, and the amber glow of the terminal spreads faint warmth through the room; overstuffed bookshelves loom behind in the darkness.

The Vertical City

Description: 

The Vertical City is written by Fannie Hurst. New York! The Vertical City! Fannie Hurst has daringly inquired into the lives of people who live dangerously in this greatest of all monolithic cities, and pictured them for us in six whirlwind sketches. You will never again think of this author's shorter work as merely short stories, for they are more than that--they are vivid impressions of life.

Under the Skylights

Description: 

A collection of three stories bearing upon the conditions of artistic and literary life in Chicago. It is a book à clef, no doubt, yet the portraiture is rather typical than specific, and the traits of each character are combined by a sort of eclectic process.

Character sketches, combining the best of biography with the finest of narrative - short and illustrative.

The Turquoise Cup

Description: 

Far down in the Desert of Sahara is the little oasis of El Merb. It is so small that our crude atlases miss it. It has but one well, and the fertile land is not more than forty rods in diameter. It has a mosque, a bazaar, a slave-market, and a café. It is called by the traders of Biskra "The Key of the Desert."
