About the Author

Roger G. Swearingen is best known for his authoritative 'The Prose Writings of Robert Louis Stevenson: A Guide' (1980); the Stevenson entry in the 'Cambridge Bibliography of English Literature' (2000); a comprehensive review of scholarship on Stevenson, including biographies and editions, published in 'Dickens Studies Annual' (2005-2006); and as the discoverer of Stevenson's first published work of fiction, a long short story called "An Old Song", published anonymously in 1877. A graduate of the University of California-Berkeley and of Yale University, after a first career teaching Victorian Literature, Stevenson, and technical writing at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, and the University of California-Davis, he went on to spend more than twenty years in information design for a major electronic measurement company in Northern California. He is currently finishing a full-length biography, 'Robert Louis Stevenson: Spirit of Adventure', for Faber & Faber.
