This site contains a small anthology of writings by Laura Riding. At the moment, the site features the following items: thirteen poems, taken from The Collected Poems of Laura Riding; ten early poems, taken from First Awakenings: The Early Poems; one rare poem which I have not found in either of these books; some stories from Progress of Stories; two chapters from Lives of Wives; some selections from Anarchism is Not Enough; an extract from Contemporaries and Snobs; two brief parts of Experts are Puzzled; a chapter from The Word Woman; the essay 'In Defence of Anger' and a letter about international affairs. (Her description of women involved in politics, in this letter, is unpleasant and, I think, mistaken.)
 
If you have not read this author before, a good place to start is with the story 'Daisy and Venison' or with the rare poem or with the ten early poems. Note that the author was very critical of many anthologies and would probably have been very critical of this one as well.
