The drama of events from the past is captured in this collection of short stories. From the last desperate moments of a stricken Carthaginian galley to mutiny on board a pirate ship, Conan Doyle captures the excitement and color of the age The Little Knightess and The Circle of Friends. It plays (or will, if I ask it to) more than one note at a time. It can be lifted by one person - a strong one, because those pipes are lead, and they're heavy - but not carried far Blood Red Horse. Peter's house rather overcrowded and stuffy with new things. . .—until one got rather stifled. Then I wanted to open the square window and let in the fresh air that blew off the Blue Mesa." (974).

They were the tint of mud, stained like dirt, the color of a moth or rotting potatoes The Ramsay Scallop. I finally revised a scene out of a manuscript altogether, because the readers in my critique groups simply found it too big a credibility hurdle to get over. I reworked that section so it was consistent with the period but glided over the part readers refused to believe.
