Of the many short story collections Jack London published during his life time, Moon-Face, first published in 1906, is one of the best. London's two favorite topics--the Klondike gold rush and South Pacific sailing--are absent from this book. Though those two categories represent the work for which London is most famous, during his prolific career he experimented with a broad range of subject matter and literary styles. Often this produced mixed results, but the stories collected in Moon-Face are for the most part very successful.
"Moon-Face" is a short story by Jack London, on the subject of extreme antipathy.
The unnamed protagonist of the story has an irrational hatred of John Claverhouse, the moon-face man. He hates really everything about him: his face, his laugh, his entire life, and when he finds out that Claverhouse engages in illegal fishing with dynamite, he works out a scheme to kill him while making it look like an accident..
