    Martin Armstrong came at last into his own upon publication of St. Christopher's Day. Previously known to a small inner circle only, he now found himself week after week in the list of best sellers published by such papers as The Observer, The Spectator, and John O' London's Weekly; and with a novel, moreover, which the majority of critics regarded as artistically an advance on any of his previous work. Those who have sympathetically watched this growth both in popularity and in artistic achievement will not, we think, be disappointed by The Sleeping Fury.

    This new volume of tales show, that show that Martin Armstrong had no intention of abandoning the short story, and it displays, besides, a breadth of treatment and sureness of touch considerably in advance of the Bazaar and the earlier Puppet Show. Like them, it contains a selection which ranges from fantastic farce, as in Aunt Hetty, to grim realism, as in The Patrol. Some listeners say they do not like short stories. This is an audiobook which will dispel their prejudice.
