|Title:||The Silver Thorn: A Book of Stories|
|Publisher:||Macmillan and Co., Limited|
|Tags:||fiction, short stories|
Fifteen short stories by the prolific Hugh Walpole, originally published in various periodicals between 1922 and 1928. An eclectic mix, including several quietly creepy horror stories: The Tiger, The Tarn, Major Wilbraham, and, in my opinion, for its Kafkaesque atmosphere, The Dove. [Suggest a different description.]
Author Bio for Walpole, Hugh
Sir Hugh Seymour Walpole (March 13, 1884 - June 1, 1941) was a British Novelist during the first half of the Twentieth Century. He was one of the most popular authors of his times, until his literary reputation was destroyed by Somerset Maugham.
His most famous novel is perhaps Rogue Herries, the first of four books in his Herries Chronicles series. He wrote thirty-six novels, and five volumes of short stories.
