The Golden Age of Weird Fiction Megapack, Vol. 4: Nictzin Dyalhis

More typos from "The Sea Witch":

In part0003.html, look for "testily" (second occurrence):

<p class="normal1">“Michael Commnenus,” I stated again, a trifle testily. “And you needn’t shout! What’s he done   but again she interrupted, speaking her archaic Norsk:</p>

should be:

<p class="normal1">“Michael Commnenus,” I stated again, a trifle testily. “And you needn’t shout! What’s he done—” but again she interrupted, speaking her archaic Norsk:</p>

Look for "dislike":

<p class="normal1">“I will be frank—I even hope that she noticed me and read my admiration without dislike. Perhaps two minds can reach each other—sometimes.

Look for "tinted":

<p class="normal1">The living body never moved, but from out its mouth emerged a faint silvery-tinted vapor flowing toward the Alruna-maid, and as it came, the violet glow diminished. The accumulating sit-very mist swirled and writhed, perceptibly taking on the semblance of the body from whence it was being extracted. There remained finally but a merest thread of silvery shimmer connecting soul and body. Heldra spoke beneath her breath:</p>
