Written in the early 1900s by a down-on-his-luck Englishman living
in Australia, this engaging collection of stories is now available
in a collectible deluxe edition. The 2 novellas presented in this
volume - The Moonstone Inn and The Man Who Tossed A Sixpence - are
thrillers set in Australia and the South Pacific. Dark schemes,
evil deeds and guarded secrets abound, mixed with romance, humour
and local colour, not forgetting the dashing heroes and virtuous
heroines. The collection includes 3 short stories - The Copenhagen
Sails Tonight, The God of Luck and To Save France. Also presented
are Strapp's other surviving writings, such as poems, letters to
the press, and draft versions of two novella chapters. Several
items in this section are exclusive to this edition. The collection
also boasts photographic illustrations, a foreword by the author's
great-niece, biographical information, and an afterword focusing on
the author's life and the settings for his stories.
