This collection includes Stevenson's better known works and the lesser ones. In my opinion, these lesser known short stories are just as good as Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and maybe even better just because they haven't been as widespread. His stories have a little bit of everything: Sci-Fi, detectives, princes, mysteries and they're not too long if you just want a short read.

I couldn't find the exact publication that I read, which was "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and other Short Stories". The 'other short stories' were The Suicide Club, Markheim, the Body Snatcher, and one other story I can't recall but which was written like Scottish brogue and awfully difficult to read. For the most part they're about the struggle between good and evil. I enjoyed them all, although the endings weren't terribly imaginative. I think the Suicide Club was my favorite.

This book really make me dizzy..I don't really understand the story until I read it over and over again..The book shows the good and bad side of a human can be..I really drown into the story when I read it as I try to imagine it..The cruel Mr. Hyde can be a nice guy,, Dr. Jekyll..But I hate the end of the story when they both died..I just one Dr. Jekyll still alive..

This is a writer I admire enormously. His stories are full of surprises. He can be intellectually quite challenging, but what an imagination! I love the way he plays with the form of the short story. He is not self-indulgent with it. He always respects the reader, which means he never disappoints.

I read this during my Gothic Blitz. Very good. As usual, much better than movies, or the summary of the plot as shared verbally.

Robert Louis (Balfour) Stevenson was a Scottish novelist, poet, and travel writer, and a leading representative of English literature. He was greatly admired by many authors, including Jorge Luis Borges, Ernest Hemingway, Rudyard Kipling and Vladimir Nabokov.

Most modernist writers dismissed him, however, because he was popular and did not write within their narrow definition of literature. It is o
