The Best Biography of Robert Louis Stevenson

Which is the best biography of Robert Louis Stevenson?

I don’t know, but I can tell you which is the most popular, according to the number of reviews at Amazon and Goodreads, including historical fiction. I’m guessing Harman is the one I’ll tackle for a serious biography.
