HELEN R. MARTIN'S "When Half-gods Go" is not to be missed by those who appreciate fine and delicate dealing with big problems of the heart. In the estimate of the Chicago Evening Post Mrs. Martin is one of the few American writers who do not seem cynical, or cowardly, or ignorant in regard to literature. "She seems to be aware of the process which is going on, chiefly under continental auspices, by means of which fiction is being expanded to take account, not so much of new portions of life as of life under new aspects. It is notorious that nearly every living novelist writes of love and marriage, for instance, in a way that ignores some of the most definite and contemporary feelings of men and women on these subjects. Mrs. Martin writes of love and marriage not as one who has read 'Romola' and 'Sapho' and 'The Scarlet Letter' and 'Madame Bovary,' but as one who has observed American domestic life."

So she makes her people and her situations real and vital and always humanly interesting.

DR. S. WEIR MITCHELL'S new novel, "John Sherwood, Ironmaster," originally


nounced for June issue, will be published in May. Like all of Dr. Mitchell's books, "John Sherwood" was the pleasant companion of the writer's leisure of some three summers, and will be printed from the third private copy-a trial print. The story is one of unusual situations and character; and the telling is put into the mouth of John Sherwood, who finds himself and wins his life's happiness out of seeming failure and wreck.

"AMONG the authors of to-day who have written stories that are wholly romantic, yet compel our serious attention, Robert

Hichens stands high," wrote C. H. Gaines recently in Harper's Weekly. "None of them is superior in keen, witty, analysis of character, in subtlety of feeling, in all the arts of modern story-writing." And Lilian Whiting, praising "The Dweller on the Threshold," queries, "Is not the greatest writer of fiction to-day to be found in Robert Hichens?"

"It is but natural," writes still another critic, "that one should measure any new fiction evolved by the clever brain of Robert Hichens with his one huge success, "The Garden of Allah,' which is probably the novel of highest appeal and best sustained interest of our generation. There are more genuine thrills in 'The Dweller on the Threshold,' and probably the mystic spell thrown around the reader is greater."

IN charm of setting and in gripping story interest, "Miss Livingston's Companion," Mary Dillon's new romance of life and love in old New York, is by far the best thing the author of "The Rose of Old St. Louis" has done. While Mrs. Dillon has endeavored to reproduce the atmosphere of the times and to portray in their essential qualities the historic personages who take their stately way

through the pages of the book, there are some few slight deviations from history which are necessary to the dramatic interest of the tale but which do not detract from historical accuracy as a whole. And she has done her work in delightful fashion, blending the historical and the romantic so deftly that each one helps the other to the working out of a complete and satisfying impression.

A NEW novel of unusual quality by a new writer is promised in Mrs. Russell Codman's "An Ardent American." It tells the experiences of a young American girl visiting her own country for the first time. Though born and educated abroad she is a real and ardent American; and her story, while delightfully light and humorous in touch, is yet of real dramatic interest.
