Dynamiter

A sequel to his New Arabian Nights, The Dynamiter follows the style of the earlier volume by assembling a collection of mystery adventure stories with disparate threads, and ultimately drawing them together. It was written in collaboration with his wife in 1885. Although it is not one of his more famous works, it is nevertheless engaging and adventurous. The various subplots and the background of terrorist intrigue make for a quick and entertaining read.

  • "Three young men decide to turn detective and meet with strange adventures."
  • "Three bored men, down to their last few pennies, vow to go out into London's streets and pursue whichever adventure befalls them. What ensues is a series of remarkable stories in which the protagonists encounter several characters who may or may not be conspirators in a bombing plot on behalf of Irish independence. The characters weave intriguing and troubling tales of their histories. The chapters stand alone as adventures, but the whole is tied together nicely in the end. There is a strong satirical bent throughout the book, but some of the stories carry hidden political punches as well. The relationship of the various characters is mysterious, yet Stevenson does little to perpetuate the mystery. He is more concerned with the storytelling, and that storytelling is terrific. More than that, I dare not write, as details would quickly expose the interconnected aspects of the stories. Suffice to say that in a book about British wanderers, Stevenson manages to tell tales of murderous Mormons, crazed Voodoo practitioners, and wayward Bohemian princes, among others."
