约翰·克赖文豪斯长着张月亮一样的圆脸,这让我很讨厌他。尤其让我恼火的是,他无论遇到什么打击都永远是笑嘻嘻没烦恼的样子。我接二连三给约翰找了很多大麻烦,甚至烧毁了他的仓库,又想方法逼他限期离开自己的房子,他仍然不在意,反而用他那笑声来折磨我的神经。最后,我训练了一条狗送给他。他高高兴兴去炸鳟鱼时就带着它。他点着了雷管扔进水里,但受到我训练的狗跳入水中,将雷管捡回来,并一定在送回约翰身边。约翰拼命逃开,却仍被狗追上,人和狗一同被炸得粉碎。我的梦魇也就消失了。

From "Moon-Face": John Claverhouse was a moon-faced man. You know the kind, cheekbones wide apart, chin and forehead melting into the cheeks to complete the perfect round, and the nose, broad and pudgy, equidistant from the circumference, flattened against the very center of the face like a dough-ball upon the ceiling. Perhaps that is why I hated him, for truly he had become an offense to my eyes, and I believed the earth to be cumbered with his presence. Be that as it may, I hated John Claverhouse. Not that he had done me what society would consider a wrong or an ill turn. Far from it. The evil was of a deeper, subtler sort; so elusive, so intangible, as to defy clear, definite analysis in words. We all experience such things at some period in our lives. For the first time we see a certain individual, one who the very instant before we did not dream existed; and yet, at the first moment of meeting, we say: "I do not like that man." We have taken a dislike, that is all. And so I with John Claverhouse. This volume also includes, "The Leopard Man's Story," "Local Color," "Amateur Night," "The Minions of Midas," "The Shadow and the Flash," "All Gold Canyon," and "Planchette."

John Griffith "Jack" London (January 12, 1876 – November 22, 1916) was an American author, journalist, and social activist. He was a pioneer in the then-burgeoning world of commercial magazine fiction and was one of the first fiction writers to obtain worldwide celebrity and a large fortune from his fiction alone. Some of his most famous works include The Call of the Wild and White Fang, both set in the Klondike Gold Rush, as well as the short stories "To Build a Fire", "An Odyssey of the North", and "Love of Life". He also wrote of the South Pacific in such stories as "The Pearls of Parlay" and "The Heathen", and of the San Francisco Bay area in The Sea Wolf.
