Conlon, Professor of English Literature at the University of Antwerp, has compiled Chesterton's short stories-some of which have never appeared in print. Many stories will be new to Chesterton fans because they were

He is entirely responsible for the popular image of Victorian London that still lingers today, and his characters-from
