Mad Sir Uchtred
The two short novellas contained in this volume show the strength and versatility of Crockett’s work. Early stories first published in 1894 they illustrate Crockett’s love of ‘gothic’ romance and ‘domestic’ drama and his facility in writing both to great effect.
‘Striking and original.’ A great field in the picturesque description of that epoch in Scottish history which especially attracts him. (Mad Sir Uchtred.)
‘A daring experiment.’ He has sought to bring the natural wilds of Galloway and the moral wilds of London into the closest association. (The PlayActress.)
In these two short serialised stories from early in Crockett’s career we see clearly the strength and versatility which characterises his later work. They chill, charm and captivate the reader and whet the appetite for what is to come.
