This is a general collection of his short stories, satire, and some stuff that I think he threw in just to see if anyone would read it.

I recommend you read "Disgraceful Persecution of a Boy" for more of his social commentary. Also, read "Petition Concerning Copyright". It's quite amusing.

I just figured something out.

There are 3 options for the auto-generated TOC: short, full, all. Is the following true:

Short skips some stuff.
Full includes all "titles".
All includes all "titles" and all "subtitles".

If this is correct, then my problem was I was using the "short" setting.

I am working my way through all my early conversions. The new copy is fully proofread to the best of my abilities. I also made some minor editorial decisions that improve the readability.

You really gotta read these stories. Mr. Twain has a truly twisted sense of humor that is wonderfully expressed by his mastery of the English langauge.
