Both "The Chaser" and "Bottle Party" are contained in the anthology of John Collier's short stories titled Fancies and Goodnights. This book is the best introduction to Collier and is easy enough to find at any good library. It might be nearly impossible to five five critics who have spent a lot of time studying John Collier and his works. He was a very popular author in the 1930s, 1940s, and into the 1950s but was not considered one of the best American authors. The introduction toFancies and Goodnights should give you some tips on other sources to consult. If not, you can get a lot of pleasure out of reading this comprehensive collection of Collier's stories.

eNotes contains a great deal of reference material on "The Chaser." You can click the reference link below.
