The multiple sides of Erskine Childers.

The book club of Bromley House Library in the United Kingdom posted an appreciation of author Erskine Childers's classic espionage novel The Riddle of the Sands (1903; part of the Haycraft-Queen Cornerstones list): "funny and exciting and very atmospheric." It also includes details on Childers's interesting life and premature death (executed during the struggle for Irish independence).
