The Lure of the Pen
by Flora Klickmann
Publisher: G. P. Putnam's sons 1920
Number of pages: 324
A book for would-be authors. No one can teach authors how or what to write; but sometimes it is possible to help the beginners to an understanding of what it is better not to write. For the rest I hope the book explains itself.

This book is an attempt to put into definite form the principles observed by the masters of the short story in the practice of their art. It is the result of a careful study of their work and of some indifferent attempts to imitate them.
