You might remember Dr. Huntsfee from my short story, Dr. Edmund Huntsfee's Perilous Expedition into the Heart of the Flood Plains, which was first published in Mad Scientist Journal and later re-published as a stand-alone e-book. The second story in the series, Mr. Arnaud's Terrifying Encounter with the Wine Wasps, was published in Mad Scientist Journal nearly a year ago, and the period of exclusivity they have is about to end. Naturally, one might expect that I repeat the self-publishing experiment and publish the second installment as a separate e-book, but I have something else in mind. From the very beginning, I've thought of Dr. Huntsfee's adventures as a series, and I'd like to continue the series beyond the second story. I plan to self-publish the first three short stories in the series all in one novel-length book, together with some "padding" (an introductory chapter and at least one more story on Captain Joseph Marlin that's not necessarily related to Dr. Huntsfee's expedition). This would allow me to price the entire first expedition (plus related stories) at a lower price than the sum of the prices of all stand-alone stories if they were published separately, but it would also take me longer to complete the volume and to get it published.

What do you think? Should I go for stand-alone stories or wait and make one big volume with the entire expedition?
