I have not been able to find the e-texts; yet all stories were published prior to the author's death in 1936 and the U.K's life+70 would make the stories available for public domain in 2006 - if I understand copyright rules correctly.

I'm just surprised that I haven't found the e-texts available anywhere online that I've searched. Is anyone working on a mobipocket edition to round out the rest of James' stories or is there a true copyright reason why they aren't available.

FYI: A Warning to the curious, available on this site, is just the short story - not the collection of stories.

I've managed to piece together whe whole collection, and have now uploaded it.
