I do think we probably have to be sensitive to copyright issues regarding pics and illustrations that we use for our books (hey artists have the same rights as authors right?!).

But it's usually a lot harder to find out if the artwork is public domain.

I will be posting a bunch of George Orwell material. A lot from his short story collections that are on PG-Australia. I will skip 1984 as a copy of it came with the Reader and other than getting Travis to do better cover art (and that does not say a lot for Travis) I don't think I would have much to add to what is already there.

In the short story Shooting an Elephant is one of my all time favorite lines, "In Moulmein, in lower Burma, I was hated by large numbers of people—the only time in my life that I have been important enough for this to happen to me."

I did post a text only version of Don Q, Part I as part of the Harvard Classics series.

Thank you, yes, I had forgotten about that. Sorry. I'll go back and check the translator on that.

Thanks again.

If the illustrations are from out-of-copyright editions of the book, there shouldn't be any issues (eg the "Phiz" illustrations of Dickens). If the illustrations are from modern editions, then one should ideally ask permission or, at the very least, acknowledge the source!

I've just posted "The Valley of Ghosts". That, by the way, is the last of the currently available Edgar Wallace novels done. He wrote enormously more - well over 100 more - so doubtless more will appear on PG in the future. I'll post them as and when they appear.

There are a couple of short stories: "The Greek Poropulos" and "The Ghost Walker" that I've not bothered with.

Harry - I love the feel of these old creakers. They're fun and absorbing. Please post ANY as you find them. I'm currently reading "The Avenger" and I find it a great read.

Thanks.

Full intent to do ALL of A. Merritt

I'm announcing to everyone here that I intend to do ALL of A. Merritt's work that is freely available.

He's a fun read and a great fantasy writer, with a touch of the mysterious and the orient thrown in.

I highly recommend him if you haven't yet read his work.

Although his work his available all over the place, it's not available at this site and especially created for our favorite Reader.

I'll work on the remaining titles when I get off work today.
Work: Argghghgghggh!!

Yes, I agree. Nobody would call Mr Wallace's works "great literature", but they are certainly "great fun". You are the one who deserves the thanks for posting the first one; I hadn't heard of him prior to that!

I just found several Sherwood Anderson books at Project Gutenberg and will prepare post them as soon as I have finished with the George Orwell material.

After that I will be going back to the Harvard Classics as the demands of business are starting to increase and the amount of free time will be little. This also means more time on planes so I can catch up on the great stuff posted here and maybe even finish the Haggard stuff Harry posted. (I may not make it through all 14 volumes.)

Intent to do "A Voyage To Arcturus" by David Lindsay

An important fantasy novel. And a great read.

Some of Jules Verne's books would be classified as "fantasy" rather than SF these days. Eg "Off On a Comet" was never intended to be taken as a serious scientific discussion. Then you have Edgar Rice Burroughs and Robert E. Howard - a lot of Burroughs and virtually all of Howard are fantasy.

I keep discovering new ones all the time, but off the top of my head I'm thinking of one right now - E. R. Eddison, author of "The Worm Ouroboros" - but I need to see if its' in the public domain.

I hope it is.
