Being a "classic" doesn't automatically make a story good, and one can't listen to the second-rate Jack London dog story and four predictable O.Henry stories without wondering how many of our classic authors would find a publisher today. William Roberts is an excellent narrator, and given a true classic, like Bierce's "Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge" or Twain's "Notorious Jumping Frog of Calaveras County," he achieves the subtlety and concentrated dramatic force that are the hallmarks of the American short story.
