F. A. M. Webster was a noted British athlete (javelin), a soldier in WW 1, an athletics coach, and a prolific author of fiction and non-fiction. Much of his non-fiction was devoted to sports and sport training, and his numerous books on the subject are still in print and still considered valid. His fiction is largely forgotten.

He wrote many short detective stories featuring "Old Ebbie", an elderly scientific detective, which were published in a series of books long out of print and very hard to find; short stories of animals in the wild; and adventure short stories set in colonial Africa and elsewhere (with typically British colonial attitudes, it must be said). He also wrote numerous novels, including those verging on science fiction and fantasy: themes such as lost races and lost worlds, and things unknown.

This original collection contains 27 examples of his short fiction in most genres, including an Old Ebbie story.
