New thread for this repo of Bierce's horror short fiction. Alex, please let me know who you'd like to review/manage the project.

Repo:
https://github.com/ConcaveTrillion/ambrose-bierce_can-such-things-be

Spreadsheet:

This collection will include all stories I've labeled 'Can Such Things Be?' under the short fiction tab.

Thanks.

Can you remind me why we're calling it "Can such things be?" Was that
the original title of the compilation containing all of these stories?

I also want to confirm that we're not including any duplicates from
Soliders and Civilians here.

Yes, that's the original title of the compilation (released at least 4 times, in 4 'versions', from my count). It will include all the stories from the 'collected works' version of the 'Can Such Things Be?' compilation, plus 6 additional stories from the 1893 version of the collection which never made it into his Collected Works. None of the stories from the first collection (soldiers & civilians) will be included here. 

I created a column called "SE Collection" that shows where the stories will go, on the 'short fiction' tab of the spreadsheet.

The final two collections then would be the 'Fantastic Fables' and the last general 'Short Fiction' collection.

Ok, I'm getting to the proof stage now, and here's my proposed cover art:

CC0

Seems to fit 'horror' fairly well. There were some great romantic/gothic paintings I found but no PD proof :-(
