 Welcome to the Library, wherein you will find many public domain texts. Most of these texts date from the late Nineteenth through the very early Twentieth Centuries and have been copied by me, after much toil, in order to make less commonly available supernatural, ghostly, and weird fiction available again to curious readers. With the passage of time, I hope to have the number of available texts grow substantially in number.
