The National Observer

Although probably more famed for its poetry (including Kipling's "Barrack-Room Ballads" and some of W.B. Yeats's best-known early lyrics) than for its fiction, this general literary review also published short stories by Robert Louis Stevenson, Kenneth Grahame, Yeats and others. Its ebullient, one-legged editor, W.E. Henley, was reputed to be the model for Long John Silver; he also discovered H.G. Wells.
