Green Mouse by Robert W. Chambers

By Robert W. Chambers

To the literary, literal, and clinical brain purposeless fiction is abhorrent. thankfully all of us are actually and scientifically susceptible; the doom of purposeless fiction is sounded; and it's a nice convenience to think that, within the close to destiny, in basic terms literary and medical works compatible for guy, lady, baby, and suffragette, are to enhance the lingerie-laden counters in our nice department stores. it's, then, with animation and self assurance that the writer with courtesy deals to a regenerated state this contemporary, ethical, literary, and hugely clinical paintings, thinly yet ineffectually disguised as fiction, in deference to the prejudices of some out of date story-readers who nonetheless live to tell the tale between us. -- R.W.C.
