Stacy Aumonier (1877–1928) was a British writer, best known for his outstanding short stories. Nobel Prize winner John Galsworthy described Aumonier as “one of the best short story writers of all time.” Aumonier wrote over eighty-five short stories in his lifetime. His intensely visual prose and captivating plots meant his works were readily adaptable to the cinema screen, and several of his short stories were adapted by Alfred Hitchcock.
