2019-12-19 ISFDB coverage of this series is mixed as ANTHOLOGY series ed. Laura Bulbeck series Gothic Fantasy and publication series as nominally single-author COLLECTION publ series Gothic Fantasy. See the Lovecraft hc and ebook.

Amazon provides "Look inside" the ebook editions, which contain the complete Contents list. Relying on the Contents lists, the 'Bram Stoker', 'Edgar Allan Poe', and 'H. G. Wells' volumes contain between opening and closing ESSAYs, only works by Stoker, Poe, and Wells. But the 'Lovecraft' volume contains among 35 collected/anthologized works 31 by Lovecraft and 4 by other writers. (Hc format 686110 and ebook format 738691 are both in the database, as the unique publications of anthology by Laura Bulbeck (series editor) and collection by Lovecraft respectively.) The last two paragraphs of the Foreword, and the brief Publisher's Note, alone concern the selection. Not much: Other writers elaborated upon the Cthulhu Mythos, which Lovecraft encouraged, and these four stories are instances.

The 'Mary Shelley' volume contains only 12 by Shelley and 8 by other writers. (Hc format 688714 alone is in the database, as the unique publication of a collection by Shelley.)

The final paragraph of the Foreword concerns the works by other writers (8 listed in Contents, and the 1818 preface by Percy not recognized):

"... It was not until 1992 that Mrs. Utterson's translation resurfaced briefly; edited by Professor Terry Hale and published by the former Gothic Society." [end par]
... With this edition I have attempted to recreate the original collection of stories in order to satisfy the reader's curiosity as to the source of Mary [Shelley]'s inspiration and to enable further academic study of the origins of Gothic and Science-fiction genres in English. Consequently three of the stories presented here are unique in that they appear, for the first time, in the English language." [the last three stories, alone covered by copyright statement]
Day names only two of the German-language writers, Apel and Laun, who wrote only 7 of the 8 stories. The eighth story was abridged by Utterson.
Day says nothing about the other texts. Are the Utterson translations, one with abridgment, reprinted here?

[1813] "The first four tales in this collection, and the last [6th of 6], are imitated from a small French work, which professes to be translated from the German [Fantasmagoriana (see]. It contains several other stories of similar cast; but which did not appears equally interesting, and they [3 of 8] have therefore been omitted. The last tale [1st of 8 Fantasmagoriana] has been considerably curtailed, as it contained much matter relative to the loves of the hero and heroine, which in a compilation of this kind appeared rather misplaced. ...

"The fifth tale,(or rather fragment,) is founded on an incident [... years ago reported to me as factual ...]. I have therefore no other claim in respect to it, than that of having a little amplified the detail. The termination is abrupt, and necessarily so, as I must candidly confess a want of imagination to fulfil the expectations which may have been excited by the early part of the tale."

Gutenberg Australia
Goodreads: "On Ghosts is an essay written by Mary Shelley, first published in London Magazine (March 1824)."
Kirstin Mills, Australia [17] "... In her essay “On Ghosts” published in the London Magazine in March, 1824, Mary Shelley questions “is it true that we do not believe in ghosts?”"
Catherine Redford, UK [18], quotes "The King of the Cats", as presented by Shelley as told by M. G. Lewis

Thus, an essay --journalism?-- in which Shelley reports that she has never seen/felt a ghost; presents two modern instances from reliable sources; and concludes with story "The King of the Cats" by M. G. Lewis.

"The Pole" was published under the name of "the Author of 'Frankenstein' " in both The Court Magazine (1832) and The English Annual (18836), it was reprinted as Mary Shelley's in Richard Garnett's Tales and Stories (1891), and it has been discussed as Mary Shelley's story in Joanna Russ's introduction to the recent reprinting of Tales and Stories (1975). Despite this "evidence", however, "The Pole" was mostly written by Claire Clairmont ...

Death of the Laird's Jock (accompanied by "The Lairds Jock")

"You have asked me, sir, to point out a subject for the pencil ... [If true, then Scott among writers, at least for this third contribution to the volume, was not asked to fit a story or poem to an illustration.]
... the subjects which are best suited to the bard or tale-teller are often totally unfit for painting, where the artist must present in a single glance all that his art has power to tell us. ...
[Despite difficulties with the assignment ...] I have, nevertheless, ventured to draw up the following traditional narrative as a story in which, when the general details are known, the interest is so much concentrated in one strong moment of agonizing passion, that it can be understood, and sympathized with, at a single glance. ..."
[five pages later, after a brief story, and the offered short one]
I conceive, that the moment when the disabled chief was roused into a last exertion by the agony of the moment is favourable to the object of a painter. ...
I remain, sir, Your obedient servant, [small caps]The Author of Waverley[small caps].

Scott's four contributions diminish in length --printed as 44, 20, 7, and 4 pages in this volume. This one, the third, appears under heading "To the editor of The Keepsake." rather than "By the author of Waverley." (all caps, viewed at Google Books). The fourth does not contain a story and appears under the heading "Description of the Engraving Entitled A Scene at Abbotsford". (all caps, p.)

This volume in the annual series, like the original ten years earlier, was published anonymously; the editor, writers, and artists all uncredited (none as "Anon.", etc). "ADVERTISEMENT", p[iii], begins: "The Proprietor having ascertained that a belief exists that the articles for the Keepsake have occasionally been selected less in relation to their intrinsic merits, than to the names of their authors, has determined to escape the imputation, by publishing the work anonymously."
