A belated note to call attention to the recent new issue (June 2014) of Le Visage Vert, which showcases two American stories, "Marjorie Daw" by Thomas Bailey Aldrich, and "The Most Dangerous Game" by Richard Connell, and includes an article by Xavier Mauméjean on the latter writer. Other stories in this issue include "The Air Serpent" by William Page and "Le Visionnaire" by Rudolf Lindau (a German diplomat who lived for many years in Paris), the latter story being best known in English as "The Seer" from Blackwood's Magazine (January 1881) and the subsequent Lindau collection, The Philosopher's Pendulum and Other Stories (1883). Michel Meurger discusses William Page's story as an inspiration of Arthur Conan Doyle's "The Horror of the Heights". Another fine issue of Le Visage Vert.
