Dylan Thomas - Collected Stories
Dylan Thomas - Collected Stories, edited by Walford Davies, introduced by Leslie Norris (London: Phoenix, 2000)
Dylan wrote short stories from a young age. Many were published in periodicals and others broadcast on the radio. Some of his early, more surreal stories (which show the influence of Caradoc Evans' infamous collection of short stories My People) were published in The Map of Love in 1939.
His best known volume, the semi-autobiographical Portrait of the Artist as a Young Dog, was issued in 1940. The Collected Stories gather these together with fragments of Dylan's unfinished novel, Adventures in the Skin Trade, and other pieces, including A Child's Christmas in Wales and Return Journey.
