calibre and tor

Has anyone else had trouble with the latest tor short stories and calibre? I have downloaded the last Cory Doctorow offering 3 times and have yet to get one that calibre will open. I have downloaded the Steven Gould twice with the same result. For reference, this is on a macbook running 10.5.x and calibre 0.4.83. I have not tried to read either of these on my Sony yet, so I do not assume this is really a calibre problem, just using this forum as most likely to find others that have tried this.

Thanks

I have it too - I can open these files fine with Sony's software but not with Calibre, which is a very unfamiliar result (I'm used to Calibre opening/converting nearly everything with decent results)

Funny thing, though, I only noticed the download links because you mentioned them - I collected the short stories they have so far and rolled my own from HTML.

I see that someone has posted the links. If you do not have trouble with files from the links, repost and tell me how to send you my files.

it has graphics elemnts whose size is set to larger than the page size (its actual size is not). Because of the way the LRF rendering is setup in calibre, it was causing an infinite loop.
