Round the Fire Stories

Search

(1908)


Preface:

In a previous volume, The Green Flag, I have
assembled a number of my stories which deal with
warfare or with sport. In the present collection those
have been brought together which are concerned with
the grotesque and with the terrible—such tales as
might well be read “round the fire” upon a winter’s
night. This would be my ideal atmosphere for such
stories, if an author might choose his time and place
as an artist does the light and hanging of his picture.
However, if they have the good fortune to give pleasure
to any one, at any time or place, their author will be
very satisfied.
