Note: "Aepyornis Island", is a short story by H. G. Wells, first published in 1894 in the Pall Mall Budget. The narrator starts a conversation with a fellow Englishman, a rough individual named Butcher, in an unspecified foreign location. Remembering reports of a court case years earlier, in which Butcher sued his employer for salary accrued while cast away on a desert island, the narrator encourages him to tell the story related to the case.
