Of course, many of these are difficult to locate and are out of print.

I have an ebook (html) version of Tales of All Countries which includes 17 of the stories:

Project Gutenberg also has some of them:

Wow, thanks for the list digifish! Looks like I will be spending some time on Project Gutenberg!

Oh, that reminds me, I have dead tree versions of Tales of all Countries and Why Frau Frohmann raised her prices, and other stories .... and I haven't read them yet! I must go hunt them out.

I'm about to read "The Parson’s Daughter of Oxney Colne" and then attempt to make intelligent comments about it on the Yahoo Trollope Group (who is discussing one story per week). The story is set in Devonshire, which AT considers "The prettiest scenery in all England—and if I am contradicted in that assertion, I will say in all Europe".

I love the short stories! My faves are An Unprotected Female at the Pyramids, Father Giles and The Relics of General Chasse. hilarious.

The Two Heroines of Plumplington is sometimes classified as a novella. I have it in book form.

Must get back to reading the short stories on Project G!

The Parson's Daughter is a little gem, reminiscent of many of the Barset sub-plots. But Returning Home is dull and depressing. Up next is The Man Who Kept His Money in a Box and Aaron Trow.

I just finished Why Frau Frohmann Raised Her Prices and Other Stories. I just loved these little stories. And there was something about the rhythm or language of the title story that seemed different to me, but I'm not sure exactly how to describe it. It seemed like he was imitating the German/Austrian sound, but I'm not sure.

This Penguin collection included the following stories:

Why Frau Frohmann Raised Her Prices
The Lady of Launay
Christmas at Thompson Hall
The Telegraph Girl
Alice Dugdale

>11 kac522: I just found this as a digitised version at and dip into it during lunchtime. Frau Frohmann reads a little like an object lesson in basic economics.
