In this story the author described a person who lived in London Bookstore, eccentric lover of literature. According to him, the literary world in England is made up of many small fraternities, just as the sky is composed of many stars, comets, meteorites. But he was extremely sure that all genius must be shining by themselves and not to be included in this sphere. However he didn't elaborate to what kind of literature world he is being regarded. The author had his own opinion this way.
