Please note: This audiobook has been created using AI voice. Vsevolod Garshin's literary career followed a stint as a infantry soldier and later an officer, and he received both public and critical acclaim in the 1880s. Before his sadly early death at the age of thirtythree after a lifelong battle with mental illness he wrote and published nineteen short stories. He drew on his military career and life in St. Petersburg as initial source material, and his varied cast of characters includes soldiers, painters, architects, madmen, bears, frogs and even flowers and trees. All are written with a depth of feeling and sympathy that marks Garshin out from his contemporaries. Collected here are the seventeen translations into English by Rowland Smith of Garshin's short stories and novellas, in chronological order of the original Russian publication.
