Story title discrepancies as fashioned at Locus: "Mr." (the first four of five "Mr" stories), "Judgement", and two short titles (697, 806). That is, Locus lists only one colon-and-subtitle story (222 · In the Modern Vein), not three. Locus style is silent on the inconsistent use of quotation marks in the last two titles (Wells introductions). Page numbers transcribed from Locus list of 1998 contents. Locus suggests title pages of the four early collections (1895 to 1903) as presumably unnumbered pp. 1 99 265 413 (spanning 50 stories, pp. 1-568) and three more interior title pages:   569 · The Door in the Wall and other stories   695 · Uncollected Stories   871 · Appendix Locus lists one more item   881 · Bibliography and mentions the introduction in its header: "Collection of 84 short stories and extracts, selected, edited and introduced by John Hammond."
