Description
Introductory: ?Q.? A year or two ago it was observed that three writers were using the curiously popular signature ?Q.? This was hardly less confusing than that one writer should use three signatures (Grant Allen, Arbuthnot Wilson, and Anon), but as none of the three was willing to try another letter, they had to leave it to the public (whose decision in such matters is final) to say who is Q to it. The public said, Let him wear this proud letter who can win it, and for the present at least it is in the possession of the author of ?The Splendid Spur? and ?The Blue Pavilions.? It would seem, too, as if it were his ?to keep,? for ?Q? is like the competition cups that are only yours for a season, unless you manage to carry them three times in succession. Mr. Quiller-Couch has been champion Q since 1890.
