The stories included in this posthumous volume are The Warrior's Soul, Prince Roman, The Tale and The Black Mate, all of which had been privately printed between 1917 and 1922. The title of the collection is apparently one which Conrad himself had planned to use for a future collection of short stories. [Keating 193. Smith 27].
