In the Scottish canon to be placed alongside Burns is high praise indeed but it's a rightful place for one of Scotland's finest novelists. Born in 1850 he managed to cram much into his 44 years travelling widely to France, the United States, Samoa and the South Seas. Of course he is widely feted for his classics 'Dr Jeckyll & Mr Hyde', 'Treasure Island' and poetry volumes such as 'A Child's Garden Of Verses'. His short stories include 'Olalla', 'The Body Snatchers' and 'The Pavillion On The Links', all of which we publish in other volumes. All offer compelling examples of narration and suspense superbly reduced to their essence. Here in 'Island night's Entertainment' he provides brilliant little stories of his time in the South Seas.
