Having got this far with my 8 complete volumes (and a 9th almost done) of my anthology of Sir Henry Rider Haggard's works (that's 35 novels, if I've counted correctly, up to Vol 9) I hope you'll forgive my self-indulgence in deciding that I may as well go the whole way and make this series into a "Complete Works" (or as complete as PG has, at least).

The volumes I've done so far are mostly books of his that I've read; the ones from here on in will be "unexplored territory" for me too. I've never read anything of Haggard's that I've not enjoyed though so, as I say, please forgive my indulgence in doing these remaining volumes purely for my own future reading pleasure, and understand that the book descriptions from now on will be a little vague, or even non-existant. I will intersperse them with things of more general interest.

What I plan to do from now on with the Haggard is basically do volumes pretty much in order of publication date, carrying on with four novels per volume. I'll leave the non-fiction until last, and finish up with his autobiography. I would guess that I'm about half way through his complete works, something like that.

I hope that these works bring pleasure to other people too.

I've never read Haggaard before but based on your other interests -- Vern, Burroughs, Doyle -- I'll give them a try. The worst that could happen is that I like them and read all of them and forget my own work.

Should anyone be interested, I've now uploaded fully illustrated versions of all six of Jane Austen's novels:

Pride and Prejudice
Sense and Sensibility
Persuasion
Mansfield Park
Northanger Abbey
Emma

Each has 24 full-page watercolour illustrations by the eminent Victorian illustrator C.E.Brock.

Hope these are of interest to someone.

Please plunder also the SF Bookshelf of PG. Namely the recently posted E. E. Smith works and H. Beam Piper.

Hey I am working on some of the SF stuff as we speak. Right now I am working on Space Prison (otherwise known The Survivors) and I'm going to do H. Beam Piper's Little Fuzzy.

Working on those today, so look for them later today and tomorrow...

I could already be finished with H. Beam Piper's Little Fuzzy. Just have to check it out now that it's created.

if you have a better cover then the one I used, feel free to post it and I'll make a version using your cover.

I only have a Palm T3 and no time to work on my Mobipocket converter.
My idea is to create .opf files and use the various converters already available. MS Litgen OCX, Mobipocket mobigen.exe etc. For several other generator programs an .opf frontend could be written.

Hey all, I am working on posting all of the public domain Robert E. Howard stories I can find. Specifically Conan and Solomon Kane, but other stuff that crops up as well...

I'll take up that challenge and do one of my childhood favorites, The Spacehounds of IPC by E.E. "Doc" Smith.

One summer my uncle gave me a copy along with a bag of other paperbacks, none of which I still remember. It was a great read.

If you've not read Haggard yet then, in a way, I envy you. I remember my first time through his books. They are inspiring. Once you read one you won't be able to set them down. I recommend She or Allan Quartermain first.
