Length: novella
Webpages: librivox.org-1, librivox.org-2

Note: • First published as five stories in Pall Mall Magazine June to October 1899, with illustrations by Edmund J. Sullivan. • Published in two parts, Amazing Stories April–May 1928, illus. by Frank R. Paul and R. E. Lawlor. Original subtitles (below) set the stories explicitly in years A.D. 2090 to 2098. In the 2008 Gutenberg ebook, "A Story of the Days to Come" is divided in parts by five numbered headings: • I—The Cure for Love • II—The Vacant Country • III—The Ways of the City • IV—Underneath • V—Bindon Intervenes [1899 main title, "The Magnanimity of the Man of Pleasure"] Omitting the numbers, the first four of those headings are the main parts of the first four original story titles in their original sequence.

Year Title
1899 The Cure for Love: A Story of the Days to Come (Anno Domini 2090)
1899 The Vacant Country: A Story of the Days to Come (Anno Domini 2090)
1899 The Ways of the City: A Story of the Days to Come (Anno Domini 2090-2095)
1899 Underneath: A Story of the Days to Come (Anno Domini 2098)
1899 Published October 1899 as the fifth in a series of five stories, all subtitled "A Story of the Days to Come" (parenthetically dated Anno Domini). The title years span 2090 to 2098, and as set in year 2097 this story first breaks the chronological sequence. Under the revised title "Bindon Intervenes" --already in the 1899 Doubleday & McClure collection Tales of Space and Time (Contents list viewed at HathiTrust)-- this story remains the last chapter, or titled section, of the novella "A Story of the Days to Come" (1899); or the last story in that collection of linked stories. Unknown whether "The Magnanimity of the Man of Pleasure" or year 2097 appears in chapter/section headings in any later publications.
