From Tabusintac to Tokyo

by Jeremiah Sutherland

Snapshots from the biography of a Canadian engineer that tell more of places and people than of himself. Wit and having something to say is in each of the shorts. Recommended if you want to switch from all the old books to some light but modern reading.

The Red Triangle

by Arthur Morrison

Average pulp mysteries collection - a detective is included but he only passively follows the oh so terrifying plot. Not better than Rohmer and worse than Wallace.

At the Villa Rose

by A.E.W. Mason

While the culprits in this interesting detective story are not very difficult to guess, what really happened is unveiled only later: a remarkable story which fits perfectly in the esoterism craze of the early 20th century.

The Postmaster's Daughter

by Louis Tracy

Excellent, and the story line was especially realistically woven. Recommended.
