Island Nights' Entertainments is a book by Scottish writer Robert Louis Stevenson. It was first published in 1893, one year before the author's death, and is a collection of three short stories; The Beach of Falesá, The Bottle Imp, and, The Isle of Voices. The Beach of Falesá is about John Wiltshire, a trader on a fictional South Sea island, who comes across a rival trader who is believed to have demonic powers by the villagers there. The Bottle Imp tells the story of Keawe, a poor Hawaiian who buys a bottle with an imp inside, believing it will grant his every desire. The Isle of Voices similarly concerns a tale of magic, with the story of Keola who lives with his wife and father-in-law, a sorcerer who always has money despite never working.
This book has 72 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1893.
