There have been few masters of the short story as popular as W. S. Maugham. His dry wit, worldweary loftiness, pungent cynicism, and penetrating powers of observation have contributed to the creation of some of the greatest short stories ever written.

Over a long period, Maugham continued to write stories that were highly interesting and controversial. With a creative verve for plot development and a jaded eye for the foibles of mankind, Maugham's stories crackle with the irrepressible energy of a master story teller.

All of Maugham's short stories in this and subsequent volumes will be presented in the order in which they were published, beginning in 1921.The stories in Volume One are:

  • 1. Rain
  • 2. The Fall of Edward Barnard
  • 3. Mackintosh
  • 4. Red
  • 5. Honolulu
  • 6. The Pool
  • 7. The Letter
  • 8. Before the Party
  • 9. The Force of Circumstance
  • 10. The Outstation
  • 11. The Yellow Streak
  • 12. P. & O.
  • 13. Jane
  • 14. The Round Dozen
  • 15. The Creative Impulse

The Complete Short Stories, Volume One will continue in volumes two and three.

All stories not in public domain are the property of and published by agreement with the W. Somerset Maugham Royalty Trust.
