      " 'The Mystery of the Blue Villa,' by Melville David-
      son [sic] Post, and 'The Blower of Bubbles,' by
      Arthur Beverly Baxter, can be reviewed as one, for
      they are both volumes of short stories, widely
      different in theme, but still appealing only to those
      who are able to enjoy a short story when it appears
      in book form. Why we do not have more volumes
      of short stories, is the first thing that comes to mind
      on picking up such volumes as these. The modern
      American authors are really masters of the short story.
      Mr. Post, for instance, can write a successful mystery
      story, with the ease, the assurance, that is not excelled
      or ever equalled by few living authors. He is a master
      of suspense and a keen character analyst. Mr. Baxter
      has not Mr. Post's skill, but he writes entertainingly,
      and graphically. He has recently served overseas, and
      most of his work mirrors his service. Both these books
      will be of great interest to the ambitious short-story
      writer, with which this country abounds."
