A Book of Stories
BY G. S. Street (1867–1936)

Three short stories in a satirical mood, taken from the collection A Book of Stories.
A coquettish young woman invites the attentions of an unattractive young baronet; an unhappy married woman persuades a gentleman friend to run away with her; a convincing braggart crows about how he would “beat up” or “kill” any offending transgressor.

George Slythe Street (18 July 1867 – 31 October 1936) was a British critic, journalist and novelist. He was associated with William Ernest Henley and the “counter-Decadents” on the staff of the National Observer. In 1914 he was appointed to the office of the Lord Chamberlain as Examiner of Plays.

Street is perhaps best known for his 1894 novel, The Autobiography of a Boy, which satirized contemporary aesthetes Oscar Wilde and Lord Alfred Douglas, and the Decadent movement of the late nineteenth century. [—Wikipedia]
