That's what's in here. A few thoughts...can't believe this is gonna be my introduction to Louisa May Alcott--a Mummy story, who knew?!...looking forward to reading the Sax Rohmer and the Guy Boothby entries, since I've sampled novels by both of them...final thought: Lost in a Pyramid may be my favorite title for anything, ever, after Stuck in a Pagoda with Trisha Toyota, and that's a song. Lost in a Pyramid! How do I resist that!
