Merrick was well regarded by other writers of his era. In 1918 fifteen writers, including famous authors such as H.G. Wells, J.M. Barrie, G.K. Chesterton and William Dean Howells, collaborated with publisher E.P. Dutton to issue "The Works of Leonard Merrick" in fifteen volumes, which were published between 1918 and 1922.
