Stevenson was admired by many higher-ups in literature such as Creator/JorgeLuisBorges and Creator/GKChesterton. Both of them were great fans of Stevenson's accessible, nigh-perfect prose. HenryJames liked his works so much that he used ''TreasureIsland'' when needing an example of a novel that perfectly did what it set out to do.

Though he wrote many books, his work was [[WhatCouldHaveBeen drastically cut short]], as Stevenson [[AuthorExistenceFailure died]] at 44 due to health problems in Upolu, one of the Samoan islands. The inscription on his tombstone became a well-known and still-sung GriefSong for many Samoans.

!!Some of his stories are:
# ''TreasureIsland''
# ''TheStrangeCaseOfDoctorJekyllAndMrHyde''
# ''Kidnapped''
# ''The Bottle Imp''
# ''New Arabian Nights''
# ''TheWrongBox''
# ''TheBodySnatcher''
# ''Olalla''
# ''WeirOfHermiston''
