"Stories for Boys" - Published in 1891, this is a collection of six of Davis's dramatic and gripping stories for boys. These are from early in his career and focus on boys and young adults, including two stories featuring one of Davis' most popular characters: Van Bibber. The stories range from a boat race between rival hotels; a baseball star who injures a bystander at a game; a tennis star who runs up against some dishonest players and judges; kids playing a dangerous game of "I dare you;" a Circus outing with Van Bibber, and a novice jockey hit with temptation to throw a race. The stories included are: "Midsummer Pirates," "Richard Carr's Baby," "The Great Tri-club Tennis Tournament," "The Jump at Corey's Slip," "The Van Bibber Baseball Club," and "The Story of a Jockey." * * * * "The Exiles and Other Stories" - Published in 1894, this is a collection of seven stories, one of which is a record of one of Davis' real experiences in England breaking the law, and continue Davis's fine tradition of tight writing, including another Van Bibber story where he is the victim of a slanderous letter. The stories are: "The Exiles," "The Writing on the Wall," "The Right of Way," "His Bad Angel," "The Boy Orator of Zepata City," "The Romance in the Life of Hefty Burke," and "An Anonymous Letter." * * * * This volume includes the complete text of all the stories, published in 1891 and 1894.
