More New Arabian Nights: The Dynamiter (1885) is a collection of linked short stories by Robert Louis Stevenson and Fanny Vandegrift. Three gentlemen of little means and no occupation meet in the Bohemian Cigar Divan, a tobacco shop with couches to sit and smoke. They read of a reward offered for information as to the whereabouts of a man with big moustaches and a sealskin coat. They agree among themselves that they will separate and search for the man so as to claim the reward. The stories that follow concern their adventures. What is the secret of the three mysterious and exotic ladies they meet? What is the seclusive renter upstairs up to with his secretive nighttime visitors and ticking boxes? And is that tobacconist what he seems? They meet again in the cigar divan in an epilogue to their travels.
