The Heart of Miranda (collection)  (1898) 
by H. B. Marriott Watson

London & New York: John Lane, 1898. The collection of novellas and novelettes includes one of his most memorable: a vampire story, "The Stone Chamber," published only a year after Bram Stoker's Dracula. Sadly, the Outlook (US) seems not to have been much impressed: you can find the 1899 review on the Discussion page.

TO HENRY JAMES

Dear Henry James:

If the appearance of this brief dedication would seem to lay upon you the onerous obligation of reading the pages that follow, pray let me make it clear that I look for no such magnanimous return. I beg that you will rather understand that here is the tribute of one who holds your work in such consideration that, having nothing else to offer save his admiration, he takes leave to set it forth in this public fashion, even if only as a prelude to his own disjected pieces.

Yours always sincerely,

H. B. Marriott Watson.

Chiswick, March 21, 1898.
