Jerome published one volume of ghost stories, but, being himself, they are not really ghost stories per se; rather they are very much ´tounge-in-cheek´ ghost stories. The volume is Told after Supper (1891), republished as After Supper Ghost Stories (and variations of this title). Some republishings claim to include not only TaS, but more material. I have not seen or read any of those.
Apart from this, I have seen a part of Novel Notes (1893) published separately as The Man of Science; it is a straight ghost story. Apart from this, I have not read anything ghastly by Jerome. (But I still haven’t read all he wrote, far from it.)
Do you know the titles of any of the volumes you are referring to? If so, one could google and perhaps find out what Jerome stories are included.UlfKParticipant
I have done a search in my Delphi e-edition, with no hits. Searching for parts, like ´good wine´, ´influenza´etc also did not give any results even remotely comparable to the quote above.
Google does not seem to have this quote attributed to anyone else, nor have I been able to find any variations/misspellings, which probably means that the attribution originated from one source only. This, however, does not mean the attribution is correct. If it is Jerome, it is probably from some uncollected article.
The Delphi edition includes the following:
Three Men In A Boat (To Say Nothing Of The Dog)
Three Men On The Bummel
Tommy And Co.
They And I
All Roads Lead To Calvary
The Short Story Collections
Told After Supper
John Ingerfield And Other Stories
