I’ve shared (often!) about various versions of the Phantom of the Opera story, and I’m hosting a reading and viewing challenge this year that’s all about exploring those many different retellings and sequels. I’ve also shared some videos visiting different portions of my bookshelves. I recently made a video sharing and discussing my Phantom collection – or at least, part of it!
See below for Part One, because I have a big Phantom collection. This video goes through the major versions from Gaston Leroux to Andrew Lloyd Webber, with a little about how my own version is similar or different from them. I’ll post next week with another video on the many versions that came after Webber. Enjoy!

Wow! Three versions of the original novel – but they are all so different. I might do the same thing for a book I really loved, if that many were available. You have quite a collection.
