Robert Louis Stevenson brings his mastery of story-telling and suspense to these intriguing tales of island mystery. In 1888, a year after leaving England, Stevenson and his wife left San Francisco and sailed to the South Pacific. The beauty, mystery, and lore of the islands captivated the great author, inspiring him to write several wonderful short stories. "The Bottle Imp," the main story in this outstanding collection, is a suspenseful folktale, introducing us to various ghosts, demons, and other frightening creatures. Also included are 3 more examples of Stevenson's masterful but too often overlooked short fiction: "Markheim," "Ollala," and "Thrawn Janet."
"The stories are all interesting, well-crafted thrillers, full of ghosts, demons, and the undead." (Library Journal)
"Fast paced and full of intrigue." (Book Report)
