    Short stories have always been a sort of instant access into an author’s brain, their soul and heart.  A few pages can lift our lives into locations, people and experiences with a sweep of landscape, narration, feelings and emotions that is difficult to achieve elsewhere. 
    In this series we try to offer up tried and trusted ‘Top Tens’ across many different themes and authors. But any anthology will immediately throw up the questions – Why that story? Why that author?  
    The theme itself will form the boundaries for our stories which range from well-known classics, newly told, to stories that modern times have overlooked but perfectly exemplify the theme.  Throughout the volume our authors whether of instant recognition or new to you are all leviathans of literature. 
    Some you may disagree with but they will get you thinking; about our choices and about those you would have made.  If this volume takes you on a path to discover more of these miniature masterpieces then we have all gained something. 
    In the vast Empire of the Russians literature was a way to exchange ideas, values and cultures.  Yet each author, each story, each character is an individual example of a journey that, story by story, has transformed the glimmering arc of its literature.

    Sir Hugh Seymour Walpole, CBE was born in Auckland, New Zealand, on March 13th, 1884.  
    His father was an Anglican clergyman which involved postings abroad.  Walpole’s early educated was by a Governess until, in 1893, his parents decided he needed a better education and the young boy was sent to England. 
    He first attended a preparatory school in Truro followed by Sir William Borlase's Grammar School in Marlow in 1895, where he was bullied, frightened and miserable.  
    The following year, 1897, the Walpole’s returned to England and Walpole became a day boy at Durham School. His refuge was the local library and its books.   
    From 1903 to 1906 Walpole studied history at Emmanuel College, Cambridge and there, in 1905, had his first work published, the critical essay "Two Meredithian Heroes".  
    Walpole was also attempting to cope with and come to terms with his homosexual feelings and to find “that perfect friend”.  
    After a short spell tutoring in Germany and then teaching French at Epsom in 1908 he immersed himself in the literary world. In London, he became a book reviewer for The Standard and wrote fiction in his spare time. In 1909, he published his first novel, ‘The Wooden Horse’ followed, in 1911, by ‘Mr. Perrin and M.r Traill’.  In early 1914 Henry James, in an article for The Times Literary Supplement, ranked Walpole among the finest of the younger British novelists. 
    As war approached, Walpole’s poor eyesight disqualified him from service and so he worked, based in Moscow, reporting for The Saturday Review and The Daily Mail. Although he visited the front in Poland, his dispatches failed to stop comments that he was not ‘doing his bit’ for the war effort.  
    Walpole was ready with a counter; an appointment as a Russian officer, in the Sanitary. He explained they were “part of the Red Cross that does the rough work at the front, carrying men out of the trenches, helping at the base hospitals in every sort of way, doing every kind of rough job”. 
    During a skirmish in June 1915 Walpole rescued a wounded soldier; his Russian comrades refused to help and this meant Walpole had to carry one end of a stretcher, dragging the man to safety. He was awarded the Cross of Saint George.  For his wartime work, he was later awarded the CBE in 1918. 
    After hostilities ended Walpole continued to write and publish and began a career on the highly lucrative lecture tour in the United States. 
    In 1924 Walpole met Harold Cheevers, who soon became his constant companion and remained for the rest of his life; “that perfect friend”.  
    Hollywoods MGM studios, invited him in 1934 to write the script for a film of David Copperfield. Walpole also had a small acting role in the film.  
    In 1937 Walpole was offered a knighthood and accepted although Kipling, Hardy, Galsworthy had all refused. “I'm not of their class... Besides I shall like being a knight," he said. 
    His health was plagued by diabetes, made worse by the frenetic pace of his life.  
    Sir Hugh Seymour Walpole, CBE, died of a heart attack at his home at Brackenburn, on June 1st, 1941. He was 57.

    A story collection spanning New York to Haiti and beyond from the National Book Award–finalist and author of Barking Man.   Spanning twenty years, Bell’s third collection of stories showcases his phenomenal literary range and his unwavering focus on characters looking in from the outside. Punks, hustlers, and lost souls of all ages and backgrounds are drawn with an exquisite eye for detail and astonishing compassion.   As in the title story, many of these pieces refer to popular songs like “Fall on Me” and “Summertime,” or are centered around music (“Leadbelly in Paris”), and the settings travel the globe from New York to Paris to Haiti to London.   Bell, a finalist for the 1995 National Book Award and the 1996 PEN/Faulkner Award and winner of the 1996 Anisfield-Wolf Book Award for the best book of the year dealing with matters of race, once again affirms his status as one of our best writers, one “with an ear for the seemingly inaudible emotions of life” (Los Angeles Times).

    In 1918 the Society of Arts and Sciences established the O. Henry Memorial Awards to reward the very best short stories published during the previous year with cash prizes.   1921 was a particularly productive year with sterling and brilliantly varied examples of the art of short story writing as are included here.  The selection committee struggled to agree on these, but finally, here they are for us to enjoy and record.   The length varies but most are sufficiently long for a reader to get their teeth into and enjoy.   The stories are listed in a rough order of how they were judged, but all are excellent.     - Summary by Phil Chenevert
