Post Conversion from Mobi to LRF error

I was attempting to convert FeedBook's Engadget 瘾科技 (http://www.feedbooks.com/feed/108) in MOBI format into LRF with embedded fonts and yield the following error:

Code:
('UnicodeEncodeError', u"'ascii' codec can't encode characters in position 4-15: ordinal not in range(128)"):
Traceback:

Next tried converting Feedbook's MOBI format of Damn Interesting from ( http://www.feedbooks.com/feed/213 )
And yield the following error.

Code:

Am I doing something wrong?

I require MOBI because PDF and EPUB feedbooks don't display unicode properly on my PC or PRS.

Environment:
MS Windows XP SP2
Calibre 0.4.83

I got the same error with MOBI format of Damn Interesting but then I tried the epub version and Calibre converted it with no problems.
