Question Combine x-pdb files into one Epub

I have a free book that consists of x parts (all PDB files).
Is there a way to manage those x parts as one book?
Or just to combine them into one book?

I need to convert them at all, because the PDB format isn't supported by my reader.

You need an editor. Pick an editor you are familiar with and use calibre to convert to a format the editor will handle. Then merge the books in the editor.

For example, you could convert to html, then put all the books into a single html with an html editor (or do it manually).

Convert each one to EPUB or HTML.
Then save all the converted books (parts) to Disk (a work folder)
Open the first one in Sigil
In the Book Browser: "Add Existing Items", one at a time (the order in the list, is the viewing order).

Adjust to taste
Save
Add completed book to Calibre
