The Shadow Stories

The Shadow Stories - 325 original pulps and their reprints

Below is a chronological list of all the original Shadow pulps. The column to the far right notes which of them have been reprinted in paperback, trade paperback or hardcover format. As you can see, most of the stories were never reprinted, so many Shadow fans have taken to photocopying originals when they can find them. Other lists elsewhere in these pages will show you my collection of photocopies of these original stories, plus those titles I have only as paperback, trade paperback or hardcover reprints, and the list of titles I am still looking for.

By my count I have 42 in book form only, plus 269 photocopies, leaving 15 titles I need for my collection (as of November 29, 1997).

If you can be of any assistance with supplying me with the remaining 20 titles, please let me know.
