An Annotated Bibliography of the Stories and Poems of L. M. Montgomery

An Annotated Bibliography of the Stories and Poems of L. M. Montgomery

Compiled and Edited by Carolyn Strom Collins

Since Rea Wilmshurst’s bibliography of Montgomery’s stories and poems was published as part of Lucy Maud Montgomery: A Preliminary Bibliography (Russell, Russell, and Wilmshurst: University of Waterloo, 1986), several independent researchers have been searching for more citations. Now Wilmshurst’s original bibliography has been updated with hundreds of new citations, showing the depth and breadth of Montgomery’s publishing history.

In addition to updating Wilmshurst’s chronological bibliography, two more sections list the stories and poems – over 500 of each -- according to the hundreds of periodicals in which they were published. Selected annotations from Montgomery’s journals and letters provide context for many of the stories and poems.

After Many Years: Twenty-One “Long-Lost” Stories by L. M. Montgomery

Selected and Edited by Carolyn Strom Collins and Christy Woster

Cover - After Many YearsAdventure, romance, comedy, tragedy -- even the supernatural -- are included in this latest collection of L. M. Montgomery’s short fiction.  It features stories that have been discovered in recent years, some of which haven’t been seen in over one hundred years. From early stories such as “How Bobby Got to the Picnic” and “The Old Homestead” to later ones such as “Our Neighbors at the Tansy Patch” and “For the Good of Anthony,” readers will experience the full range of Montgomery’s story-telling talents.

Montgomery scholars comment on this new volume -- Elizabeth Epperly says: “A ghost story, lessons in kindness and love, and truly comic first-person narrations: they are all here in a delightful mixture of short stories … we find her writing in different voices and for different audiences.” Elizabeth Waterston says: “Montgomery’s short stories show the same insight, wit, and charm as her novels.”  Mary Henley Rubio says: These stories “show Canadian life moving from agrarian pre-war Prince Edward Island to post-war Ontario, reflecting the changing cultural attitudes and life-styles … they provide another level of interest for those who try to decode her creative process.” Mary Beth Cavert says: “There is always something new to discover about Montgomery’s work, and this publication shows, happily, that there is more to be revealed.”
