Cover Design by John Minton

Here are three stories by the author of Fireman Flower, widely differing in subject and approach, but all remarkable for the qualities of vivid and unusual symbolism, sustained imagination and dramatic description which made that first collection of stories so memorable. 


There is no living author who can be more interesting or who can more thoroughly absorb the reader in his own vision, brilliant yet sombre.


This is a book which everyone who enjoys reading should buy.

Sir Osbert Sitwell
