Three Short Stories by Mark Twain

"How I Edited an Agricultural Paper" was originally published in Mark Twain's 1875 collection of short stories, Sketches New and Old

"Luck" was first published in 1891 in Harper's Magazine. It was subsequently reprinted in 1892 in the anthology Merry Tales.

"Something About Repentence" is taken from Letters from the Earth, which was written circa 1909 and published posthumously in 1962.

Tom Bacon reads these classic Mark Twain tales for The Bookshelf.
