A collection of fiction and nonfiction by the Scottish author of Treasure Island, selected by two acclaimed Argentinian writers.

First imagined in the 1960s but never published, this collection of Robert Louis Stevenson’s essays, fables and short stories was imagined by Jorge Luis Borges and Adolfo Bioy Casares—a collection of their favorite works of nonfiction, short stories, and fables. The themes—integrity, intellectual and imaginative truth, literary meaning, the fantastic—are common to all three authors, and these connections are explored in an introduction by Kevin MacNeil. Featuring such classic tales as “The Bottle Imp” and rare essays on crime, morality, dreams, and romance, this anthology is rich, eloquent and utterly readable.
