Treasury of Short Stories

If the first ICSE post wasn't enough, a nudge from sidcarter lead me to to a blog post where another old textbook - the Treasury of Short Stories is being tracked down by the interwebs.

It's slightly unusual to believe that for example Sir Patrick Hastings (worthy of a rather long wikipedia article and a story pored over by countless students) has no copy of his story "The Lost Pearls" up anywhere on the internet!

I have to go poke around with my old textbooks store at home.

I found great joy when I obtained the mp3 of "To build a fire" by Jack London. For the last 3 winters, I have extracted as much enjoyment from sitting around a fire (or a a heater) in a cozy house and foisting the listening experience upon someone who has either forgotten or never heard of the classic story.
