Welcome to Deciphering the Dynamiter, a hub of research on authorial issues surrounding Robert Louis Stevenson, his wife Fanny Stevenson, and their complex collaborations.

While our work focuses on attributing the authorship of The Dynamiter: More New Arabian Nights, a collection of short stories ostensibly co-authored by this literary duo, we’ve also discovered some unexpected details about the rest of the Stevensons’ oeuvre.
