For the holiday (our 18th anniversary) my wife and I scanned our beloved (and very ratty) copy of the c. 1870 American edition of George W. M. Reynolds's Wagner, the Wehr-Wolf. A pot-boiler with werewolves, kidnapping, evil Ottomans, and more than likely pirates for all I recall from the glimpses I got while scanning it.

It's a heck of a read, and has been released as an ongoing project at Distributed Proofreaders for public consumption (after it's undergone public proofreading, of course).

This is apparently a complete edition, which is much larger than that published by Dover Books a few years back. Indeed, only a couple of copies of this edition appear to be anywhere at all, till now.

Happy Halloween.

Clarifying: "beloved" in the sense that we've wanted to scan it for ages, but haven't even been able to wade through even a chapter without spending the rest of the week going about saying, "Alas!" and "But--can it be?--It cannot!!"

Why DID the Victorians tell ghost stories at Christmas? I've always scratched my head at that one.

"Why DID the Victorians tell ghost stories at Christmas? I've always scratched my head at that one."

Because there was nothing on TV.
