Victorian Short Story Reading Group: ‘The Pipe of Mystery’ by G.A. Henty

Colonial Short Stories: India.

An old soldier tells his grandchildren about an episode which took place during his service in India. This story involves the Great Indian Mutiny of 1857 but is told at a jovial gathering from the perspective of an adventure, with no mention of the politics or problems which led to the troubles.

At each session there is a brief introduction to the work, followed by a group discussion in a relaxed atmosphere, with wine and nibbles supplied.
