John Buchan, who served in Intelligence during World War I, wrote over 100 books, including seven collections of short stories. Although he is best known for his five Richard Hannay thrillers (including The 39 Steps, the basis for an Alfred Hitchcock film), some of his most lucid and enjoyable writing can be found in his lesser known short stories.

Here are tales about war-time code breaking, cannibalism, and swashbuckling adventure during the times of Bonnie Prince Charlie. They vie with subtler stories, with a more intimate perspective, about the vagaries of human nature, politics, fishing, and poaching, set against the landscape of the lowland Scottish countryside where Buchan spent his youth.

    " Yeah it's a bit repetitive, but it did introduce the expression "my hat!" as a sign of amazement to my vocabulary, and there are plenty of lolsome Dreaded Hun moments too. "

    " A short novel from a best-selling author of espionage novels. The story takes place right before World War I. It was adapted into a famous Alfred Hitchcock movie from 1935, but the story is quite different. Utterly unbelievable, but quite entertaining. "

    " Fun adventure book suggested to me by a bookstore clerk in Antigua. Good break-up between some more serious reads. "

    " It’s not high literature – but, by George, it’s entertaining! "

    " So dated and yet still enjoyable. "

    " Loved it. I had seen the BBC movie and really wanted to read the book. I enjoyed the book. A quick read with a good mystery. "

    " Pretty dull, on the whole. I saw the movie first, though, which I usually try to avoid, so as to not have preconcieved notions. In this case I didn't even know there was a book, so it wasn't completely intentional. Still, the movie was much better. "
