Description

Island Nights' Entertainments is a collection of three short stories by Scottish writer Robert Louis Stevenson. Published one year before his death in 1894, the stories are, 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.
