CHB Kitchin Bibliography    

SYNOPSIS
Mr. Kitchin has the power of making his characters spring into the reader's mind as living creatures, individual and complete, moving in a background so skilfully conjured up that one seems to know far more about it than one has in fact been told. And Mr. Kitchin is a master of suspense and surprise—a master in fact of the storyteller's craft. But he is more than a master-craftsman. As well as being immediately enjoyable reading these stories embody, at a deeper level, that kind of comment on life which lifts a work of craftmanship to the level of a work of art.
