One of Crane's best short stories, The Blue Hotel, is in this collection. The author of The Red Badge of Courage can really tell a good story with a lot of color. It's free--down load it and enjoy offline like I did.

I really liked this book. I found it from a list of books Ernest Hemingway recommended to an aspiring writer, which included one of these three short stories. This collection includes The Monster, The Blue Hotel (Hemingway's recommendation), and The New Mittens. I enjoyed all three stories. I thought Stephen Crane's writing style might be too old fashioned or inaccessible, but I found the stories easy to read and quite thought-provoking. Crane can really illustrate with his words, and is effective at painting a wide range of characters. I was proud of the dad in The Monster for sticking up for Henry. I was scared of The Swede in The Blue Hotel, and I was entertained by the little boy who ruined his mittens (and could totally relate to the boy's motivation to run away from home. I'm pretty sure I pulled the same stunt when I was a kid!). Crane is a great writer, and I'm very happy I read this. Thanks for the recommendation, Hemingway!

Before I knew Stephen Crane as a writer, I knew his works of poetry. I was fascinated by the brevity and depth of the prose poetry he penned. From there I grew to admire hims as a writer. This is a very good collection of some of his lesser known works but were excellent just the same. And for anyone who has never read his poetry, please download some of the free books and be prepared for whole new experience in poetry. You will not be sorry you did.
