Well, I'm talking about "Melmoth The Wanderer," by Charles Robert Maturin, an incredible Gothic tale that mesmerized me and had me spellbound when I first studied it in a graduate course on the Gothic in Literature course a few years ago.

Good choice! I'd love to read it again.
Speaking of "Gothic", it looks like Le Fanu's Carmilla hasn't been done yet. I think that will be my next project.

Thank you for these. Is there any chance of getting them all in an omnibus collection (is that a redundant phrase?)?

I can't wait to read them again. I still remember laughing so hard I cried and couldn't read the last time through.

I have no plans to do this for the Wodehouse.

Bear in mind that much of his most popular stuff (eg virtually all the "Jeeves and Wooster" books) are still under copyright protection. It's only his early books which I can post here, which represent a small fraction of the total.

Thanks for doing the ones that are available. Since Mr. Wodehouse lived - and wrote, I believe - into his 90s, I'll just look upon his books slowly coming out of copyright as a gift that keeps on giving.

I'm off on holiday tomorrow and plan to read the Prousts that I have done earlier, and check for typos. When I ge back I shall revise them and do some more in the series.

I'm afraid you're going to be disappointed . Since Mr Wodehouse died in 1975, no more of his books will enter the public domain until 70 years after his death - ie at the start of 2046. You have quite a wait ahead of you...

HarryT,

No Dr Who books? There are (at least were) several available free from BBC. Could not resist as I saw the Dalek.

We have to be very careful with that kind of thing. "Freely downloadable" doesn't mean "out of copyright", and we'd need the permission of the copyright holder to repost them here. With an organisation like the BBC, the bureaucracy involved in trying to get that permission doesn't bear thinking about .

Roy, even without retyped titles I want to read them. This is a far larger list than I remember from years gone by.

Roy,

Thanks for providing a consolidated list. Looks like I need to get of my lazy butt and start contributing books.

This looks nice a nice, fat ebook and should weigh a lot of pounds!

Seriously, this will be an incredible read!

I am working on two ebooks right now.

The Awakening by Kate Chopin (about 85% done)


The Curious Republic of Gondour and other Whimsical Sketches by Mark Twain
This last one needs a lot of editing; the PG file has a table of contents that only mathches about half of what's actually in the file. ?!?
