Hi Pulpmeister,

You seem to have forgotten the Cumulative Index in this volume?
And in my ReadEra App, the TOC of this volume is OK but the menu only shows the title of the Dreiser story, not its author, as opposed to all other entries (title + author) -- which I noticed when searching for the Dreiser story via the app menu and couldn't detect Dreiser's name.
Can you or anybody else confirm?

Wow, soon reaching #100!

Yes, I did forget in the index, but with 100 looming I thought I'd wait and build a 1-100 Cumulative.

When I was making the links for the contents, I discovered that I'd left the Dreiser story out of the contents, so I typed it in and renumbered the stories below it correctly in the HTML Editor.

And, then I went and used the earlier Word version of the unrevised contents in the original post above, instead of the HTML version, and left out Dreiser altogether. I'll do a quick remake.

I'm not familiar with your app, so I don't know what the glitch is. I did all the html links in my usual way.

Thanks a lot for your answer and for correcting the above content list!
Below is a screenshot of the 5th story (by Theodore Dreiser) where the author's name does not appear next to the title, as opposed to all other entries.
BTW, the same thing happens with the PocketBook App that I was using before.

Who knows, it's maybe the inverted commas that lead to that effect?
But, never mind, that's a minimal glitch and I just thought I would mention it in case it was reproducible for everybody and easy to correct.

Thanks again, I love the series, and your argument relating to the cumulative index makes perfectly sense. Looking forward to celebrate #100.

Yes, so am I: how a one-off turned into 100-off....
