Winter Evening Tales
Collected among the Cottagers in the South of Scotland by Jamea Hogg in 2 volumes (1820)

Given the date of this publication you will find these tales enjoyable and informative. Offers an astonishing variety of voices and subjects. Full of unexpected delights. The expanse of his genius and imagination, from the macabre to the scandalous and criminal is vividly on display in this classic collection. This instalment boasts some of Hogg's best work -- the macabre story "The Long Pack", and the weirdly brilliant "Connel of Dee". Winter Evening Tales is one of Hogg's most desirable volumes, on grounds of sheer readability and aesthetic merit. For students of Hogg, of Scottish literature, of romanticism, and of the tale collection as a form, it counts as "essential reading".
