Tales From The “White Hart”Anthology, Science Fiction, Vintage
In the White Hart Pub in London just north of Fleet Street, Harry Purvis holds court with his fellow writers of scientific yarns. A consummate storyteller, Harry is joined by the actual writers Samuel Youd, John Wyndham, and Clarke himself, all under pseudonyms, and all trying to outdo each other with their outlandish tales of science and invention.
Inspired by the Jorkens collections by Lord Dunsany, this anthology combines elements of comedy and horror, with “sly wit and inviting prose style” and a distinctly English flavor (AV Club). Written by a “colossus of science fiction,” Tales from the “White Hart” is not just for fans of the genre, but for anyone who appreciates a good tall tale (The New Yorker).
