    First imagined in the 1960s but never published, this collection of Robert Louis Stevenson's essays, fables and short stories was imagined by Jorge Luis Borges and Adolfo Bioy Casares - a collection of their favourite works of non-fiction, short stories and fables. The themes - integrity, intellectual and imaginative truth, literary meaning, the fantastic - are common to all three authors, and these connections are explored in an introduction by Kevin MacNeil. Including such classic tales as 'The Bottle Imp' and rare essays on crime, morality, dreams and romance, Robert Louis Stevenson: An Anthology is rich, eloquent and utterly readable.
