In the Scottish canon to be placed alongside Robert 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.This volume centres on his short stories. They are somewhat dark bringing a chill to the air and a race to the heart.
