Free eBook - Short Stories


Though this blog is about collecting Maugham's books as physical objects, I also like to have the digitized version for my eReader, because then I can carry them around and take advantage of technology, not like Maugham who had to suffer the problem of travelling with his enormous book-bag! Besides, it is very convenient when you need to search for something specific.

Readers have the choice to download or, in some cases, borrow some of these books from the Open Library. Registration is free and it is not location-restricted; you can borrow from anywhere.

On the other hand, if you are interested in reading Maugham's works, visit the new My Maugham Collection Concordance Library (MMCCL), which, upon completion, will contain Maugham's complete works and a searchable database.

I have included some publication history for Individual Short Stories in the second section; the information is taken from Raymond Toole Stott's A Bibliography of the Works of W. Somerset Maugham (1973), except when indicated otherwise. I am putting only the first and/or second appearances in magazines and first inclusion in collections, as this is not intended to be a bibliography.

If you are looking for a particular story, due to the large number of stories that Maugham published, the easiest way is to do a search on this page (ctrl+f) and locate in which collections the story is included. I will be including links to individual stories online at MMCCL when they are ready.

If you are interested in comments or the first editions of Maugham's work, you will find relevant posts on the right hand column organized by subjects.

    Seventeen Lost Stories (1969)


    Doubleday & Co., 1969; this contains Orientations (by that time supposedly hard to find a copy) and stories that were not published before. All this aside, you have to hear Stott with a rare touch of sarcasm: "According to a news item in The Times 29 April 1969 'Dr. Showalter [ed. of this collection] spent about two years tracking down the early stories.' If he had consulted this bibliography, originally published in 1956, he would have found all the so-called 'lost' seventeen stories without stirring from his chair" (179–80).

    • Introduction
    • The Punctiliousness of Don Sebastian (1898)
    • A Bad Example (1899)

    Individual Short Stories


    The followings are individual short stories. I find it convenient to have them listed in chronological order. A brief publication history of each of them is provided, but it is by no means complete, as this is not intended to be a bibliography but simply a list for providing a quick look at the original publication date of the stories. The information is taken from Stott except when indicated. Link to the individual short story will be provided gradually in this section while building My Maugham Collection Concordance Library (MMCCL).

    1898



    1899



    1900


    • "Cupid and the Vicar of Swale"
      1. Punch 7 February
      2. Seventeen Lost Stories (1969)
    • "Lady Habart"
      1. Punch 25 April; 2, 9 May
      2. Seventeen Lost Stories

    1901


    • "A Really Nice Story"
      1. Black and White November
      2. the history of this story is more complicated. The link is to a reprint published in Hawera & Normanby Star, Volume XLII, Issue 7464, 24 May 1902, Page 2, not mentioned in Stott or collected in other editions. It was noted first by Holden, Philip. "An Undocumented Short Story by W. Somerset Maugham." Notes and Queries 58.4 (2011): 590-91. However, later it came out that this story was published a year before in Black & White, November 30 1901, pp.768-769 of Vol.XXII, (pp.14-15 of No.505), as found by Johndoeqwe at Wikipedia in 2012.
    • "The Image of the Virgin"
      1. Black and White December

    1903


    • "Pro Patria"
      1. Pall Mall February
      2. Seventeen Lost Stories (1969)
    • "A Point of Law"
      1. Strand Magazine November
      2. Seventeen Lost Stories (1969)

    1904


    • "The Criminal"
      1. Lloyd's Weekly News, July 31 1904, p.14; free text link is to a later reprint in West Gippsland Gazette, noted by Johndoeqwe at Wikipedia in 2012
    • "An Irish Gentleman"
      1. Strand Magazine September
      2. Seventeen Lost Stories

    1906


    • "Flirtation"
      1. Daily Mail 3 February though written in 1904
      2. Seventeen Lost Stories (1969)
    • "The Fortunate Painter"
      1. Bystander 7 March
      2. Seventeen Lost Stories
    • "A Marriage of Convenience"
      1. Illustrated London News 23 June - although Stott puts it as printed in 1908 in D12, it must have been a typo since later cross reference in D84 has the correct year
      2. rewritten and printed in Strand Magazine December 1929
      3. Hearst's International Combined With Cosmopolitan January 1930
      4. chapter XXXIV in The Gentleman in the Parlour (1930)
      5. as "The French Governor" in The Maugham Reader (1950), not in Stott
      6. the comparison of the original and revised versions provides a very interesting reading of Maugham's style. The setting and the narrative voice are different, although the main theme remains the same. The narrator in the early version is reminiscent of a nineteenth-century protagonist, romantic and awkward at times, with a strong sense of justice, something from Conan Doyle or Bram Stoker; the later version is definitely Maugham, an observer, a traveller, who, like a sponge, absorbs as many stories as can be wrung out of the very air he breathes. As the original Illustrated London News may not be easily come by, it can be read in Seventeen Lost Stories.

    1907

    • "Good Manners"
      1. Windsor Magazine May
      2. Seventeen Lost Stories (1969)

    1908

      4. Cosmopolitans (1936)
    • "The Happy Couple"
      1. Cassell's Magazine May; a story that Maugham had forgotten about and later recovered by Karl Pfeiffer. After reading it again, Maugham found that it was worth rewriting it and it was republished in
      2. Red Book February 1943 in its new form
      3. Creatures of Circumstances (1947)

    1909

Zipkin, he wrote: "Dear Jerry This little story was written for my daughter Liza. You must read it to yours when you have one. Willie."

    1. I really admire your effort and work on Maugham. It must took a lot of time to classify all these internet sources.I would very much like to pay my tribute to you.

    2. Hello, so can I find all the short stories which are in "The Collected Short Stories" in four volumes available in Amazon?

      1. EgE, I haven't double checked, but you can find the content of the four volumes here: http://www.librarything.com/work/1447494
        The list I compile here is done bit by bit when I get hold of the digitalized version of the stories.

    3. Hi, do you have a full analysis about the short story "The Creative Impulse" by W. Somerset Maugham?

      1. Hi yunichan,
        You may like to have a look at the Criticism of W. Somerset Maugham page, in which a list of books of criticism are listed; they can be borrowed from the Open Library. You can do a word search to find discussion about the story that you are interested in.
