    Maggie
    A Girl of the Streets and Other Short Fiction
    Not yet famous for his Civil War masterpiece, The Red Badge of Courage, Stephen Crane was unable to find a publisher for his brilliant Maggie: A Girl of the Streets, finally printing it himself in 1893. Condemned and misunderstood during Crane’s lifetime, this starkly realistic story of a pretty child of the Bowery has since been recognized as a landmark work in American fiction. Now Crane’s great short novel of life in turn-of-the-century New York is published in its original form, along with four of Crane’s best short stories–The Blue Hotel, The Bride Comes to Yellow Sky, The Monster, and The Open Boat–stories of such remarkable power and clarity that they stand among the finest short stories ever written by an American.

    Active Service

    Active Service
    Stephen Crane's Active Service is about the many obstacles and hurdles faced by those who rise against society. In the backdrop of war and strife, this is a poignant love story that touches the heart.

    The Third Violet

    The Third Violet
    Before he succumbed to a fatal case of tuberculosis at the age of 28, author Stephen Crane penned five remarkably accomplished novels, not to mention dozens of short stories, essays, and sketches. The novel The Third Violet delves deeply into the complexities of love, viewed through the lens of the unlikely romance that blossoms between an up-and-coming artist and an aristocratic socialite.
