R. D. Cumming

R. D. Cumming is a bit of a mystery, more so than Lemony Snicket and Daniel Handler, because they both have Wikipedia entries. R. D. Cumming is easily confused with other R. D.’s and a plethora of Cummings. In my pursuit of R. D. Cumming, I found titbits, but nothing more.

R. D. Cumming is known for “Skookum Chuck Fables – Bits of History, Through the Microscope”, well maybe “known” alludes to a greater notoriety than the Skookum Chuck Fables achieved. The fables account for rural life in British Columbia.

The R. D. stands for Robert Dalziel and I found one notification of R. D.’s lifespan 1871-1958. From what I can tell, the collection of fables/short stories deserves reading – and a paperback version was apparently published in 2010.
