In 1883 he published Treasure Island to great acclaim. Kidnapped and 'Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde' were both published in 1886. Problems with his health meant that Stevenson frequently travelled in the warmer climates of the South Seas. He died in Samoa on 3 December 1894.

Reviews

"Stevenson's short stories are certain to retain their position in English literature. His serious rivals are few indeed" -- Arthur Conan Doyle "Mr Hyde's sordid and perhaps deviant excesses are rendered more suggestive through being left undescribed" -- Sarah Waters "A fable that lies nearer to poetry than to ordinary prose fiction" -- Vladimir Nabokov "Robert Louis Stevenson...was a storyteller, that's what I'd like to be, that's what I'm trying to be" -- Quintin Jardine "Jekyll and Hyde, in particular, is such an important novel in terms of suspense and setting a perfect scene for crime" -- Alanna Knight
