Volume 14. The Vincent Starrett Memorial Library
Vincent Starrett, as well as essayist, was story-teller. He wrote stories and fables to entertain the readers of his day. The title story alone (although only 17 pages in length) is eminently satisfying, and so are the rest of the stories, including "The Head of Cromwell" and "The House of Madness."
