But neither Tex nor Timber City could foresee the turbulent chain of events which were to result from his high, if indecorous, resolve, here set down—­the wild tale of an untamed West.

A well-known writer, who has served his apprenticeship in the cow country, said the other day, “I like Hendryx’s stories—­they’re real.  His boys are the boys I used to work with and know.  His West is the West I learned to love.”

The Ivory Fan

By

Adrian Heard

When Lily Kellaway makes the observation, “It is better to be a slave to a man, which is natural, than to a woman, which is intolerable,” she recites the text upon which the author of The Ivory Fan has built up a novel that is at once humorous in its cynicism and cynical in its humor.  At the same time he gives us a pastel of certain phases of life comprehensive in its coloring and bitterly uncompromising of line.

This is an unconventional book, full of incident and plenty of clever dialogue.

Too Old for Dolls

By

Anthony M. Ludovici

The story of a “flapper” too old for dolls, scarcely old enough for anything else, but capable of enraging her older sister and even her mother by the ease with which she secures the admiration of their male friends.

“From a Mohawk, from a sexless savage with tangled hair and blotchy features, she had, by a stroke of the wand, become metamorphosed into a remarkably attractive young woman.”  And with the change came a disconcerting knowledge of power.

A very real, very tense, and very modern novel.
