I'm looking for the "Dave Dawson" books by Robert Sidney Bowen. Three of them are on PG (the first and two near the end of the series) but there are about 20, total. I'm unsure of their copyright status, but given that the first and nearly-last are available, I have high hopes for the others. (of course, physically finding them may be another matter)

Chales and Mary Lamb's "Lambs Tales From Shakespeare" is on PG. Would some nice uploader please make an illustrated copy for MobileRead?

Thanks.

Thank you for pointing that out. I did look for it, but I think the placement of la Motte Fuque confused me and lead me to believe that Lambs wasn't there.

Are any of Georges Simenon's Maigret books available as ebooks? Are they copyright free yet? I have read several of them but it would be nice to have them as ebooks!
Thanks!

Amazon has 8 listed for the Kindle:

http://www.amazon.com/Georges-Simeno...ntt_dp_epwbk_0

As for the copyrights on his book, the more serious issue is the translation. The earliest of these works is Lock 14, and you can bet the lawyers at Penguin have renewed the copyright religiously, since the day that English-language version was released. This book was translated by Robert Baldick.

Precisely. A translation has its own copyright, independent from that of the original book. This extends (in most countries) to 70 years after the translator's death.

I thought that might be the case! And as I don't have a Kindle, I'm stuck!

Thanks anyway!

I believe Penguin has other (non-Kindle) formats of 8 of Simenon's books. You can browse their site:

http://us.penguingroup.com/nf/Search...tml?id=simenon

Look for ereader format, which seems to be a code-name for Adobe pdf (?).

Another source is www.booksonboard.com. They offer epub versions (which are preferable to pdf).

It isn't. eReader format is a format originally designed by Peanut Press, an early ebook publisher targeting Palm OS PDAs. It uses a markup language called Palm Markup Language, which supports color, embedded images, hyperlinks, text attributes, and (depending upon the platform) custom fonts.

Palm bought them and made them the Palm Digital Media Division, and distributed a freeware version of the reader called Palm Reader with Palm OS PDAs. They later sold the division to Motricity, an ouffit vending B2B mobile content solutions, who renamed it eReader. Motricty allowed it to languish, and eventually sold it to Fictionwise, who were in turn acquired by Barnes and Noble. eReader has freeware viewers for an assortment of platforms, and the Barnes and Noble nook dedicated reader supports PML formatted books as a legacy format, in addition to the primary ePub format.

You can get available clients for eReader documents here:
http://www.ereader.com/ereader/software/browse.htm

A freeware Windows application for creating eReader documents from handwritten PML source is here:
http://www.ereader.com/ereader/help/dropbook/

A payware WYSIWYG GUI program for creating eReader documents is here:
http://www.ereader.com/ereader/software/ebookstudio.htm

Information about PML is here:
http://www.ereader.com/ereader/help/dropbook/pml.htm

And you can still buy commercial eReader titles:

After reading the wonderful Edgar Rice Burroughs MOBI and then ePUB omnibuses compiled by HarryT, I wonder if it is at all possible to have a similar omnibus of his standalone novels of like genre, such as Beyond the Furtherest Star, Lost Continent etc.

I am aware these are available individually, but an omnibus would be nice as well.

Just a thought!

Cheers and thanks

Mike

I am quite capable of preparing text. So far I have only created HTML files to put through Calibre for my Kobo. But I do them very fast. I realize that settings for Kobo will probably not produce an epub correctly for other eReaders.

If there should be small changes, they can be made really easily and automatically.

I'd like C.S. Lewis's Till We Have Faces. It doesn't seem to be available in ebook at all.
