One Day's Courtship and The Heralds of Fame

Robert Barr (1849 - 1912)

Robert Barr approaches romance in two short stories in his engaging and subtly humorous style.

In One Day's Courtship, British artist John Trenton visits Quebec and tries to slip in a quick canoe trip on his last day in town to photograph the scenic Shawenegan Falls.

In The Heralds of Fame, a freshman novelist heads to America with his suitcase packed with copies of his new book. Before heading out, he panic buys an extra copy of his own book at a bookstand to buoy sales after observing someone pass it up. This sets off a chain of events. - Summary by Nat Spratt
