When I saw the name "Miss M.G.Lewis" i wondered why it seemed familiar, then it hit me: The decidedly pre-Victorian writer Matthew Gregory Lewis (better known as "Monk" Lewis)used "M.G.Lewis" as the form of his name on the title pages of at least some (probably most or all)of his books published in his lifetime. Had "Monk" Lewis been so forgotten whenever Miss Lewis was publishing that using this form of hr name didn't seem incongrous? Or did she (or her publisher) somehow think this would sell books?
