I've added sources for Edith Wharton and put in Arthur Conan Doyle's major unrecorded works (he has sooooo much unrecorded non-Sherlock material). Also added Frances Frances Hodgson Burnett (her list is still incomplete).

Would someone be willing to go through and see what needs updating in this?

I know Jack London's Strength of the Strong was just cataloged; there must be others from this list in the last 4-5 years, too.
Short essays: Elia, and The Last Essays of Elia
Bulwer-Lytton novel: The Caxtons
Boring works 30-70 minutes long: Insomnia Collection 5

I just posted a "done" on one of them that I BCed. Not sure when/if I'd be able to check on the rest.

We'd need Gutenberg copyright clearance for it, or HathiTrust.

As Tricia says
It implies that some were written in 1925 so you would have to wait for those - you could probably source the earlier ones maybe in their original magazine publications if you wanted.
