Told after supper by Jerome K Jerome( )

43 editions published between 1891 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 2,194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Told After Supper (1891) is a collection of short ghost stories written by the English writer Jerome K. Jerome. The collection's "introductory" starts as follows: "It was Christmas Eve. I begin this way because it is the proper, orthodox, respectable way to begin ... The experienced reader knows it was Christmas Eve, without my telling him. It always is Christmas Eve, in a ghost story." Hence, all the short stories included here happen on Christmas Eve and their events are marked with the presence of supernatural elements. Being all told by a first-person narrator, the stories are entitled "How the Stories Came to be Told," Teddy Biffles' story," "The Doctor's story," "Mr. Coombe's Story," "My Uncle's Story," "A Personal Explanation," and "My Own Story." Jerome mingles the fantastic with humor and even tells jokes about ghosts to mix the feeling of fear with laughter. He classifies these nightly visitors into "middle-class ghosts," "young ghosts," "conscientious ghosts," "average British ghosts," and "lady specters" who are "contradictory and snappish, and liable to burst into tears." They all hold their annual feast on Christmas Eve, their "great gala night."
Diary of a pilgrimage : and six essays by Jerome K Jerome( )

79 editions published between 1891 and 2015 in English and German and held by 2,166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The passion play at Oberammergau is unique, and to many people a journey to see it would be something of a pilgrimage. Such a journey is the subject of this comic novel, very much in the style of Jerome's big success, Three Men in a Boat. The journey is made by rail, and the humour is on such subjects as the obscurity of railway timetables." -- geocities.com
Three men on the bummel by Jerome K Jerome( )

217 editions published between 1800 and 2018 in 6 languages and held by 2,134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Having survived the hazards of the great English waterway - plus the outrageous behaviour of that dog - in their debut novel, THREE MEN IN A BOAT, we re-join our heroes George, Harris and Jerome on a bicycle tour through the Black Forest. What is a bummel, you may ask? It is a journey, long or short, without an end; the only thing regulating it being the necessity of getting back within a given time to the point from which one started ... As the trio encounters misadventures involving transport, the weather, and the usually tranquil locals, chaos and mayhem again reign supreme
Malvina of Brittany, by Jerome K. Jerome by Jerome K Jerome( )

31 editions published between 1909 and 2018 in English and held by 1,994 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of short stories and a novella captures much of the whimsy for which Jerome is known.

Banished from her kind because of a foolish act, Malvina is forced to travel alone through time until she is discovered in 1914 and introduced to English village society--with humorous and unexpected results. Also includes "The Street of the Blank Wall," "The Lesson," "Sylvia of the Letters," "The Fawn Gloves," and "His Evening Out."
