This edition follows the text of the three volume 'Complete Short Stories' published by Thistle Publishing in 1996. Written between 1894 and 1934, John Buchan's short stories present him as a masterful storyteller, weaving his remarkable personal experiences and interests as a traveller, war correspondent, politician and classical scholar int his tales of suspense. In the 18 stories collected here, fans will find his signature hair-raising action, alongside more mysterious, even uncanny tales. Giles Foden, bestselling author of the Last King of Scotland, has selected these stories to give a sense of Buchan not only as the father of the modern thriller, but as a sensitive and nuanced writer with an eye for place and an ear for language which few have equalled.
