Reese I doubt that having more than one edition of HUCK FINN listed will prevent it from heading the list of works by Twain. Respected scholars have referred to the work as THE ADVENTURES OF HUCKLEBERRY FINN, so I probably shouldn't have bothered to add an edition without "THE" in the title. But since ADVENTURES OF HUCKLEBERRY FINN is or has been considered the title of the "standard edition" of Twain's masterpiece, I didn't resist the urge to add a "no-THE" edition.

Antoine Well, that's fine, I guess. But why do we have an edition in spanish?


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads It does that sometimes when editions are combined.

Debbie One of my favorite Twain stories is probably in this list somewhere -"The Invalid's Story." It's about a man who accompanies a coffin on a train - and someone has set a smelly cheese on it. As the train starts to reek, everyone assumes it is the body. Hilarious!
