This collection of Pushkin's shorter fiction begins with The Queen of Spades, perhaps the most celebrated short story in Russian literature. The young Hermann, while watching some friends gambling, hears a rumour of how an officer's grandmother is always able to predict the three winning cards in a game. Hermann gradually becomes obsessed with the old woman and her seemingly mystical powers, and seeks to extract the secret from her at any cost. Contains a number of lesser-known works by Pushkin which are not easily available in English, including the novel Dubrovsky and the stories Egyptian Nights and Peter the Great's Negro.
