‘Excellent, entertaining and ingenious … from Oscar Wilde to Arthur Conan Doyle, this fine anthology celebrates one of the richest moments in Britain’s literary history’ Sunday TimesThe quarter century between 1890 and the outbreak of the First World War saw an extraordinary boom in the popularity and quality of short stories in Britain, fuelled by a large, eager new magazine readership. The great writers of the age produced some of their finest work, and literary genres – the ghost story, science fiction – took shape.

This richly varied, endlessly entertaining anthology brings together authors from Katherine Mansfield to Rudyard Kipling, James Joyce to Saki, H. G. Wells to Rebecca West.

It celebrates a teeming, innovative world of literary achievement. Edited with an introduction by Philip Hensher
