This is beautiful and exemplary work, Pynch(on?). Thanks for taking such pains.

One thing:

For consistency, shouldn't the conjunction and be lower-cased in the title, Women And Writing?

Also, the words other stories and other short stories are normally init-capped in title case, and the comma before and is unnecessary in all instances of and Other Stories and and Other Short Stories.

Other is an adjective and is also five letters, so every rule of title case applies. Ditto with short and the noun stories.

Incidentally, why are only some stories called short when all are considered short stories? Shouldn't each instance use and Other Stories, since the shortness is implied?

Also:

In your current version of the works of Oscar Wilde, I noticed in the ToC that you added a period at the end of each title. That's rather non-standard and I found it distracting in an otherwise gorgeous rendering.

Please understand that I mean these as minor criticisms which in no way diminish your meticulous work elsewhere. And thanks so much for caring about the line indents in the poetry - something which mainstream publishers seem not to get right in too many of their ePub editions.
