Endeavour Press is proud to announce its latest project:


THE BEST OF THE STRAND MAGAZINE
For 60 years The Strand Magazine showcased the best writers in England and America.

The magazine did not just reflect the age, it shaped it.

It was a popular publication for the best in fiction, featuring works by some of the greatest authors of the 19th and 20th centuries, including Rudyard Kipling, Leo Tolstoy, Agatha Christie and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, as well as European writers such as Victor Hugo and Lermontov.

Conan Doyle was to prove one of the Strand’s most prolific authors -- his Sherlock Holmes stories propelled him to fame.

But The Strand was not just Holmes.

It published many brilliant stories and essays, some by authors that are still famous, others by writers waiting to be re-discovered by a new generation of readers.

'The Best of The Strand' is a carefully edited selection of some of the finest work to appear in the magazine.

The first collection of includes 13 fiction and non-fiction pieces from military history to romance, Curious Public School Customs to detective fiction.

The aim, like that if the original magazine, is to inform and entertain.

The collection is introduced by historian Andrew Roberts, explaining The Strand's significance and its enduring legacy.

Includes "the charge of the Light Brigade" by Pte James Lamb, which will be interesting.

I've become quite keen on the kindle offerings, if only because of the price, and the fact that some of the more obscure writings of my favourite authors seem to appear more in that format than print (may be a false impression, there); I've added quite a few old Jack Vance tales to my collection recently.
