CHAPBOOKS
 
Chico's first published stories appeared in the long-lived and much-lamented GHOSTS & SCHOLARS which ran from 1979 to 2002. G&S featured 8 of her stories in all, starting in the very first issue!
In 1983 Chico published the first of a series of chapbooks which housed the majority of the remaining stories, all illustrated by the author.
The first four, CHANGE & DECAY, IN AND OUT OF THE BELFRY, BELL MUSIC, and BELLS RUNG BACKWARDS were subtitled "Ghost Stories for Bellringers and Others".
The last, WRAITHS & RINGERS, was styled "Tales of the Supernatural". BELL MUSIC and BELLS RUNG BACKWARDS also featured sub-sections entitled "Worlds Apart" each containing two science fiction stories.
A limited edition chapbook published in 1999, GHOSTS, SCHOLARS, CAMPANOLOGISTS & OTHERS, collected together all the short stories published elsewhere (except the Carnacki tales) plus an article "M R James: An English Humorist" first published in G&S#5.
