KIRKUS REVIEW

Many of these British authors' stories which have appeared in American magazines will be recognized, and there are good names which include Martin Armstrong, Ralph Dates, H. E. Bates, T. O. Beachcroft, Elizabeth Bowen, Walter de la Mare, James Hanley, Geoffrey Household, Liam O'Flaherty, Stephen Spender, L. A. G. Strong. The backgrounds vary, Ireland, Wales, London, English countryside -- and the stories are on the whole more distinguished than the ""slick"" type of tales in the American collections. Anglophiles -- together with short story enthusiasts -- for your market, which will not be extensive.
