MONDAY, August 29th at 7:00pm: The Conclusion of "The Pavilion on the Links"

Caledonia continues the short story The Pavilion on the Links from Robert Louis Stevenson's published collection The New Arabian Nights.

The story does not take place in  Arabia, however, but in Scotland.  Frank Cassilis, while living a life exploring the untrodden part of Britain and Scotland, camps near a seaside pavilion on the estate of an old friend.  Mysterious doings and midnight arrivals to the pavilion draw Frank into a web of intrigue he did not expect, with equally unexpected consequences.

The story was considered by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in 1890 at "the high-water mark of {Stevenson's} genius" and "the first short story in the world" -- setting the standard for English short stories for years to come.
