Is this kind of website viable for a recipe?
Although I've used Calibre a long time, I've never dealt with (or attempted to make) a recipe. I'm reading this serialised story: http://demo.ilona-andrews.com/ and wondered if this was the kind of thing recipes could be used for. I'm quite happy to work through the manual and have a go at making one, but I don't want to spend hours only to find that this is not the kind of website that is compatible with recipes. I otherwise wondered whether it would work with a plugin such as the one for fanfic. I'm hoping that I can download the story as a mobi (or otherwise epub) and that when new content is added that it can be added to the ebook in reading order. I would also like to double check that this doesn't infringe the author's copyright in anyway (I just want it as a a means of reading it for myself even if I'm offline).
Thanks for any responses.

A recipe can do that, use parse_index() in the recipe. Though you shouldn;t need to use a recipe at all. Just use a recursive downlaoder like wget or calibre's own web2disk to download the html files and then convert them to epub.
