A companion volume to Short Stories of Australia : The Moderns (ed. Beatrice Davis).
Includes brief biographical notes on the authors.
Author's Introduction: 'The publishers asked Stewart 'to make this selection, which is the first book of an anthology intended to cover, in two volumes, the best Australian short stories from the beginning of European settlement to the 1960s,...' and he decided that rather than an essentially historical approach 'it could be essentially literary in approach, based on quality.' Douglas Stewart (vii-xiv).
