Hello, I noticed your book on Amazon and was looking at the preview there. This list of stories you've read to select from is fascinating. Where did you find these some of these stories? Like "Hallowe'en in Germany or Walpurgis Night" or "The Monster of Scotland"? From the top of your list. It's hard enough finding even all of those Mary Shelley short stories!

Hi David,
Many of the ghost stories were hard to find. I searched through old magazines like Blackwood's. The Internet Archive is also a good source of old texts. I wanted my review to be as thorough as possible.

I agree that for some reason Mary Shelley's short stories are tough to find.
Best,
Andrew
