Yes, the "Novels" are separate "reads," but there's a frame that ties the intire book together. This is a wonderful book [read: novel] that has many admirers.

However, I no longer have the LRF file, but I'll check on this.

What's up with that is this:

I did some research on the title, and apparently Machen himself excluded two short pieces (one of which is the "Novel of the Iron Maid") when he edited the book for a later printing.

Some recent editors, most notably Lin Carter in the 1970s during his editorship of the Ballantine Adult Fantasy series, included the two pieces.

My download of this title and subsequent assemblage of this into an LRF did not include these two short "stories."

I hope this answers your question. You are more than welcome, of course, to find these two "missing" sections and assemble them for us. ---- Hey! You'll find it's good practice for future and longer projects!

Oh-then I have a link to the COMPLETE text online.Anyway,the Iron maid novel couldve been REALY briliant,if Machen would indicate the man invited the guy in his house to show him his torture colection in "MORE WAYS THEN ONE"-this way,it seems kinda-

Drib-I REALY wanna talk to you about it,cause it a hell of a powerfull tale,I mean
