  1. The Little Lady of the Big House — Serialized in Cosmopolitan Magazine, April 1915-January 1916.

    Book publication: New York: The Macmillan Co., April 1916. London thought this novel would be "a cleancut gem, even in serial form — a jewel of artistry." (Letters of Jack London, p. 1135.) For an evaluation of this long-neglected book, see "The Symbolic Triad in London's The Little Lady of the Big House," by Edwin B. Erbentraut, Jack London Newsletter, (September-December, 1970), pp. 82-89.

    London paid George Sterling $100 for the plot of this story. (Letter from Jack London to George Sterling, written from Honolulu, March 7, 1916, Huntington Library files.) Paying such a fee seems to confirm Mary Austin's view: "I have always suspected that Jack's buying of plots for short stories from any writer with more plots than places to bestow them was chiefly a generous camouflage for help that could not be asked or given otherwise." See Mary Austin's Earth Horizon (New York: The Literary Guild, 1932, p. 304).
