Each of the 86 titles Gnome published will have a separate entry, listed in publication order, so will run from #1, The Carnelian Cube, to #86, The Philosophical Corps. They average at least 1000 words, so collectively they comprise a full book’s worth of new wordage on Gnome. They’ll contain a short biography of the author, an examination of oddities or bibliographic problems relating to the Gnome edition, earlier publications of the contents if any, a sampling of contemporary reviews, full bibliographic information, all variants, true first editions where applicable, and images of the dust wrapper and boards for all variants I own. 

I’ve also added contemporary photographs of all authors for whom they are findable, original covers of magazines containing the stories, and other images that felt like fun.
