Various: Astounding Stories of Super-Science November 1930. v1. 3 July 2010
Here is Astounding Stories of Super-Science, November 1930.
These first incarnations of Astounding were adventure-oriented magazines, with no interest in education through science. The covers were all painted by Wesso and similarly action-filled; the first issue showed a giant beetle attacking a man. The quality of the fiction was very low, and Bates would not accept any experimental stories, relying mostly on formulaic plots. But, they are still rip-roaring good reads.
My sister found this at Project Gutenberg. I tried reading the ePub version and the html version, but there was too much extraneous "stuff." All I wanted was text so I could read the stories.
These are very text-only ePubs. I took out all illustrations (except for the book cover), references to illustrations/advertisements, the Reader's corner (letters) and all the magazine details (price, editors, etc.).
All you get is the stories, formatted to show italics and with a Table of Contents.
Please let me know if they don't come out well for you (they show fine in my ereader and my version of ADE).
P.S. I see other Astounding books here, but (1) they are not ePub and (2) the two that are ePub have images and such - these are only text. So, please let me know if I've overstepped my limits by posting these. Thanks.
P.P.S. These are not copyrighted in the United States (per Project Gutenberg's web site)
