Jeremy Treglown, editor of the London Times Literary Supplement, selected the thirty-three essays included in The Lantern-Bearers and Other Essays and wrote the scholarly introduction. Stevenson's essays are surprisingly varied, both in topic and style. I found some to be less interesting, some to have buried gems, and others to be fascinating.

Miss Sutcliff's The Lantern Bearers ends, it is true, with a victory, but a victory in a war which, the reader is aware throughout the story, is inevitably lost. For this is a story of the decline.
Now March confirms this, and offers to show Nelson where the other bodies are buried - but only if Ruth will do the digging. Curious, but wary, Ruth agrees. March tells Ruth that he killed four more women and that their bodies are buried near a village bordering the fens, said to be haunted by the Lantern Men, mysterious figures holding lights that lure travellers to their deaths.
