Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The conception was bizarre and grotesque enough, but the author developed it into a fascinating tale, incidentally injecting into it a good deal of drollery and fun. The tale shows that aspect of Stockton’s genius that is inclined to the whimsical and chimerical, as well as the mechanical turn of his invention.” Edwin W. Bowen, author of “The Fiction of Frank R. Stockton,” in the Sewanee Review
