Discussion[edit]

I thought I was the only one who was really "hooked" on Frank R. Stockton (1834-1902) until yesterday when I got information about discussions on the internet. I feel Stockton has a great deal to offer our modern culture--in so many ways--about war, love for all kinds of people, history, "pixie" tongue-in-cheek humor, and more. I think his stories can be read aloud and listened to with joy. I have read a number of his stories onto cassette tapes. I would welcome hearing from any interested persons about why they like Stockton.

I'm reading Kate Bonnet (available from gutenberg.org if you print it yourself, though trying to find information on the author and date of publishing, I saw it listed through Amazon at used book dealers). My side note is that reading the book I found at least the light-hearted tone of the movie "Pirates of the Carribean", though not the same story and i like his books and his face. -- Susan 4-17-06

His middle name is Richard, should someone include it? Nancy.Gallant 23:01, 19 May 2007 (UTC)

Pretty meager[edit]

I guess a bunch of stuff had to be reverted due to copyvio. Unfortunately it got reverted back to a vandalized version that talked about a fictitious career as a hot-dog eater. Also unfortunately it's never revived. I might try to expand later.--T. Anthony (talk) 21:07, 18 September 2011 (UTC)

father of American children's fantasy?[edit]

Lynne Vallon (http://muse.jhu.edu/login?auth=0&type=summary&url=/journals/lion_and_the_unicorn/v021/21.3br_rahn.html) says that Suzanne Rahn (in Rediscoveries in Children's Literature) credits Stockton with founding America's kids' fantasy. Can some-one look at Rahn and check this and incorporate it if it is the case?Kdammers (talk) 04:38, 10 January 2013 (UTC)
