    In hunting for books like Horatio Hornblower, I stumbled upon a collection of Hornblower tales I d missed or, mostly missed This is not a substantial collection by any means it s rather shorter than the shortest Hornblower work, Hornblower and the Hotspur, or Hornblower in the West Indies, and two of its five stories have been previously collected The stories are chiefly of interest to those who know and admire Hornblower already, as they put him in fascinating or morally demanding situat In hunting for books like Horatio Hornblower, I stumbled upon a collection of Hornblower tales I d missed or, mostly missed This is not a substantial collection by any means it s rather shorter than the shortest Hornblower work, Hornblower and the Hotspur, or Hornblower in the West Indies, and two of its five stories have been previously collected The stories are chiefly of interest to those who know and admire Hornblower already, as they put him in fascinating or morally demanding situations The last story here has him encounter a seeming lunatic who claims to be the emperor Napoleon, for instance, while another has him tasked with securing an Irish deserter and discovering a secret compartment in the man s trunk filled with gold In all instances Hornblower proves himself to be a perfectly honorable and charitable fellow Perhaps the most interesting story in the one in which Admiral Hornblower is asked to take insane King George III to rendezvous with another ship, but they re stumbled upon by an American frigate in the latter part of the war of 1812.Although this collection really only recommends itself to the completists among Hornblower readers, I felt instantly at home as soon as I started reading the first story Forester and his naval hero were good to experience again

    Any fiction by C.S Forester is a jewel I had seen the majority of these short stories before in hard copy but this collection is still a nice piece of work Some of these may have been nucleotide possible novels At least I e is referred to in an actuarial length novel, so these are a clue to what we might have seen it Forested had lived another decade.

    Not sure why this didn t get reviewed, but I read the short stories in proper chronological order with the books See my review of Mr Midshipman Hornblower here stories are good do add a bit to the chronology even though one is just a sketch Not sure why this didn t get reviewed, but I read the short stories in proper chronological order with the books See my review of Mr Midshipman Hornblower here stories are good do add a bit to the chronology even though one is just a sketch

    The five short stories were a pleasant reminder of how much I enjoy C.S Forester and especially his Hornblower series several years ago.
