Python Gutenberg E-text Project: PyGE
[from ePublishing Blog]
PyGE (Python Gutenberg E-text Project) is an exciting SourceForge project to make it easier to use Project Gutenberg books. It consists of three component desktop programs:
My only disappointment is that I cannot find any ebook readers for the PPC that support zTXT. Not that you need it. You can just use PyGETS and then either read the raw txt book, zip it up (µbook supports zipped files), or convert it to iSilo and read it that way.

It appears to be a GUI and a fetcher on top of GUTINDEX.ALL (which has been deprecated now in favor of the RDF output) and Pyrite, written by Rob Tillotson (n9mtb).
Hopefully they can update it to handle the current format of the Gutenberg archives. It looks like an up-and-coming promising tool, for those using text-only readers like zTXT and TombRaider.
I wish they would set up some mailing lists on their SourceForge project page however, I have several fixes for the 0.6.1 version, and some features I've quickly added to the local code here to make it a bit more "flexible", and it would be useful to discuss it with other users and developers.
Its a new project, so hopefully they'll enrich their project tools to cover these deficiencies in the near future.
