Publisher: Project Gutenberg
ISBN/ASIN: 1573920398

Description:
The Mysterious Stranger, published posthumously in 1916 and belonging to Twain's dark period, belies the popular image of the affable American humorist. In this anti-religious tale, Twain denies the existence of a benign Providence, a soul, an afterlife, and even reality itself. As the Stranger in the story asserts, nothing exists; all is a dream.
