“Laura” (1914)

Creators

Hector Hugh Munro (writer).

Extent

Read in 2017.

Subject

An impish woman is reincarnated as a nearby otter.

Commentary

Dated as published in Beasts and Super-Beasts. A comedy in bad taste, with no apparent regard for characterization, environment, supernatural premisses etc. It reads very much like high-concept writing for the cinema as it appeared 100 years later.
