Originally published in 1897, Thirty Strange Stories contains such well-known stories as The Triumphs of a Taxidermist, about the outrageous exploits, both authentic and fraudulent, of a taxidermist, who then reappears in A Deal of Ostriches, a tale of a con man's exploitation of human greed after one of five ostriches swallows a precious diamond. Also included are The Stolen Bacillus about an anarchist who plans to release what he believes is a cholera bacillus into London's water supply, and The Red Room, the horrifying story of a man trapped in a haunted room, but haunted by what? With twenty-six more stories besides, this is a must-have for any fan of Wells's short fiction.
