The first book edition of these stories, GHOSTS: BEING THE EXPERIENCES OF FLAXMAN LOW (1899), is rare and only six of the stories were collected in the rather shoddy wartime 1916 reprint edition.

Ashley, Who's Who in Horror and Fantasy Fiction, p. 151. Barron (ed), Horror Literature 3-85. Bleiler (1978), p. 99. Reginald 11896.
