SINS AND FOLLIES
Three Stories by Robert Louis Stevenson
Available in: PDF or ePub
“In crime, as in all life, nothing is fixed or certain. Put another way, it is part of the mystery of being, which has its origin in religious faith, and Stevenson’s stories abound in mysteries.”
As the creator of the two-faced Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, no one tells tales of dastardly deeds as well as Robert Louis Stevenson. From Arthur Conan Doyle to Ian Rankin, generations of Edinburgh’s writers have been inspired by his work. This collection contains three of Stevenson’s stories of sin – “A Lodging for the Night” (his first published work of fiction); “Markheim” and “The Body-Snatcher”, and is published as part of RLS Day 2016.
