The Oakdale Affair

Edgar Rice BURROUGHS (1875 - 1950)

Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Jack London / H.H. Knibbs-inspired, selfless, poetry-spouting, hobo character, Bridge, makes another appearance in the novellete, The Oakdale Affair (original title, Bridge and the Oskalooska Kid). Joining the poetic hobo in this gothic-like tale are many other unusual elements: dark mysterious nights, a deserted haunted farmhouse, a violent thunderstorm, the Oskalooska Kid, a nameless girl, thieves and murderers, Beppo the bear, and other surprises.

The Oakdale Affair is a deep mystery and would puzzle even Sherlock Holmes. (Introduction by Ralph Snelson)
