"A delightful volume of sketch-stories....These stories are exquisite in form and fancy. The interest of the tales is of a bright and sparkling order, and the humor is subtle and engaging." -Philadelphia Bulletin

"Ample evidence of Mr. Matthews's skill and power are found in this volume....A more thoroughly delightful collection of stories has not appeared this year." -Christian Work

"They are all good tales - particularly 'The Rival Ghosts,' which has few equals in its peculiarly fantastic line, and 'Sixteen Years Without a Birthday,' which is a hard fact not to be disputed; and Mr. Matthews need not fear that his gentle readers will fail to track him to his lair, in the distant and unconventional Postscript, or that they will not enjoy his confidential chat in the final pages of the book." -Harper's New Monthly Magazine

"The book will find great favor during the summer." -Boston Journal

"Every one of them is entertaining and exceedingly clever." -Brooklyn Standard Untion

"All fresh and cleverly told." -Philadelphia Press

"Matthews is at his best in the short story." -New York Herald

"When one opens the pages of Mr. Brander Matthews's 'Tales of Fantasy and Fact' one comes upon an entirely different manner - a manner much more in touch with the quick and active spirit of the times; a manner characterized by alertness, inventiveness, and a certain brisk movement and expression. This group of short stories very well illustrates Mr. Matthews's facility and his range." -The Outlook
