Langford has never reissued Platen Stories as a standalone ebook since several items (marked * below) were incorporated into his larger collection The Silence of the Langford and more (marked below) were added to the expanded ebook of Silence.
Table of Contents:
- Introduction: Zen and the Art of Egotripping
- Vulgarity and Nullity
- The Book of War: Chapter 2080
- One Hundred Years Ago
- The Moving Accident *
- The Dragonhiker's Guide to Battlefield Covenant at Dune's Edge: Odyssey Two *
- The Inverted Baked Alaska, and After
- The Leaky Establishment: The Final Drips *
- Fizz! Buzz! *
- Hazel's Language Lessons
- Mexicon Jigsaw
- A Load of Crystal Balls: Great Failures of Prediction AD 2000-3000
- Our Lady of Pain *
Additionally, free space at the end of each item is packed with filler snippets from assorted Langford fanzines. "Vulgarity and Nullity", a review of Robert A. Heinlein's "The Number of the Beast", ended up in a serious Langford critical collection rather than in Silence.
