Notes

  • Note on verso of title page of It's Moments Like These (1972): ' All the stories in this book, with the exception of 'The Eviction of Ernie Lyle', originally appeared in expurgated form in Legends from Benson's Valley first published by T. Werner laurie Ltd., 1963.' While this clearly indicates that early editions of Legends from Benson's Valley contained expurgated versions of stories later published in a fuller version, it is uncertain when, if at all, later editions were revised. The 1984 Penguin edition contains a story not included in the first 1963 edition and thus may also have the unexpurgated versions of the other stories.
  • Available as a sound recording.
