This Smashwords edition of Strange Stories from a Chinese Studio was transcribed from the 1908 Second Edition of a translation by Herbert A. Giles. This publisher attempted to edit them with a more modern format, including punctuation and styling, to make them more accessible to a reader in this e-book format. In addition, Chinese personal and place names have been rendered into modern pinyin.
