Civilians, . stories reminiscent of Poe's tales of horror and marked by an
ingenious use of the surprise Big Money ending, a sardonic humor, and a

Hangman's Daughter (1892), a medieval romance translated with a collaborator
from the German of Richard Voss, and Black Beetles in Amber (1892), witty
satirical verses.
