Since his volume of short stories, The Bazaar, Martin Armstrong has written two novels, The Goat and Compasses and Desert. This new volume of tales show, however, that he had no intention of abandoning the short story, and it displays, besides, a breadth of treatment and sureness of touch considerably in advance of the Bazaar and the earlier Puppet Show. Like them, it contains a selection which ranges from fantastic farce, as in Aunt Hetty, to grim realism, as in The Patrol. Some novel readers say they do not like short stories. This is a book which will dispel their prejudice.
