The water ghost and others by John Kendrick Bangs( Book )
33 editions published between 1894 and 2017 in English and held by 551 libraries worldwide
The trouble with Harrowby Hall was that it was haunted, and, what was worse, the ghost did not content itself with merely appearing at the bedside of the afflicted person who saw it, but persisted in remaining there for one mortal hour before it would disappear. It never appeared except on Christmas Eve, and then as the clock was striking twelve, in which respect alone was it lacking in that originality which in these days is a sine qua non of success in spectral life. The owners of Harrowby Hall had done their utmost to rid themselves of the damp and dewy lady who rose up out of t

Prolific novelist Stuart Harley has published many books, but wealth and popular acclaim have continued to elude him. In an attempt to help him secure his fortune, Harley's publisher recommends that he write stories with more appeal to female audiences. Harley agrees and begins to work, but he soon finds that his plucky heroine -- one Marguerite Andrews -- has developed a mind of her own and is not overly keen on going along with his plans

Today, quirky or eccentric outsiders are often afforded a measure of tolerance or even respect. In the nineteenth century, however, these original thinkers were often regarded as dangerous crackpots and subjected to scorn -- or worse. John Kendrick Bangs' The Idiot follows the ups and downs of one such unfortunate fellow in a most amusing fashion

A little book of Christmas by John Kendrick Bangs( file )
11 editions published between 1912 and 2014 in English and held by 426 libraries worldwide
Mr. Bangs has caught the spirit of the ""Christmas Carols, "" and phrased it in his own style, so well liked in America. Not in a long time have we had Christmas stories so good as ""The Conversion of Hetherington, """"The Child Who Had Everything But ..., "" ""Santa Claus and Little Billie, "" and ""The House of the Seven Santas, ""--The four stories in this volume. Mr. Bangs' sense of humor never fails, his diction is well liked, and in these tales he has woven a strain of pathos which is not unfitting

Coffee and repartee by John Kendrick Bangs( Book )
33 editions published between 1893 and 2015 in English and held by 397 libraries worldwide
This is the story of what happens when men who think themselves smarter than they are face off against a man who's smarter than he seems. Set entirely in the dining room of a cheap boarding house, Coffee and Repartee chronicles the clever, funny, competitive table talk of the boarders. Formal credentials and personal pretensions to mental superiority all crumble in the face of precisely the right come-back, time after time

The inventions of the idiot by John Kendrick Bangs( file )
14 editions published between 1903 and 2017 in English and held by 372 libraries worldwide
The idiot is the same old idiot, if a trifle worn. As an inventive idiot he is in his element although of all his numerous inventions he complains that none has been realized. Probably there is a deep psychological reason for that for they were all of the ""Dreamaline"" sort. For a few cents everyone was to be able to be what he wanted to be, the reasoning of the idiot being that "" if you feel like a millionaire you are as happy as a millionaire; happier in fact, for you are not even bothered by cutting the coupons."" The other members of Mrs. Smithers-Pedagogue's high class home
