Different Sorts of Fools —XVI. The Coward — XVII. The Statue and the--Bust! — XVIII. Diamond Cut Glass — XIX. Spanish Maine's Little Joke.

All the editions I have actually been able to access just had this six. I haven't been able to find an edition with any more, including in second hand and collector book sale descriptions. If something turns up, I'll make a v2. At 30,000 odd words it certainly seems slimmer than the typical book of the period, where 70-80,000 words would be more likely.

The full hardcover book is about 400 pages, so nineteen stories is more likely than six.

There's a set of five story collections for sale on Amazon that has all the known short stories by PC Wren. Those books were created by the aforementioned PC Wren collector and bibliographer. One volume has 9 stories from Port o' Missing Men, the other has the other10.

I wonder if perhaps the other 10 might still be in copyright and that's why it's hard to find them. It wouldn't surprise me.
