This book-collection file includes all 13 volumes of the collection "Original Maupassant Short Stories" Translated by ALBERT M. C. McMASTER, A. E. HENDERSON, MME. QUESADA and Others. According to Wikipedia: "Guy de Maupassant (5 August 1850 - 6 July 1893) was a popular 19th-century French writer and considered one of the fathers of the modern short story. A protégé of Flaubert, Maupassant's stories are characterized by their economy of style and their efficient, effortless dénouement. Many of the stories are set during the Franco-Prussian War of the 1870s and several describe the futility of war and the innocent civilians who, caught in the conflict, emerge changed. He also wrote six short novels."
