Hi Lynne,

Here are four stories by Oscar Wilde. Actually, they were told by him to Aimée Lowther, who copied them down and submitted them to a magazine called The Mask after Wilde's death. I have read the credits as "[Title] by Oscar Wilde, as told to Aimée Lowther", as I thought that was the most accurate description ("by Oscar Wilde and Aimée Lowther" didn't seem quite right). I hope that's OK.

I couldn't find any information on Aimée Lowther so I can't supply her birth or death dates at the moment.

Someone has pointed me to a biography of Aimée‘s sister, which confirms she lived 1869-1935. If you add her to the author database, her bio could be: “Aimée Lowther was an amateur actor in plays and masques. She was a friend of Ellen Terry and Oscar Wilde.”

There’s no need for me to add her... in collections, there is only space for one author. But it is good to know when she died... I think you are in a death+70 country, so knowing she died before 1950 ensures it is PD for you.
