Kipling ebook collection in html & mobi format

I have created single file HTML and then Mobi versions of all of
Rudyard kipling's prose that was available at the whitewolf site.
You can download some or all of them from here

http://www.di2.nu/files/kipling/

I note that I haven't got the TOC right in the .mobi ones (the links
work but I think I need to add a couple of tags somewhere so that the
TOC appears in the cybook 'goto' menu) also I haven't got images
(cover or otherwise) yet. I'll reply to this post as and when I fix
these issues or any others that people report to me

Share & Enjoy

Since I was able to correct a couple of scan errors from memory I think the answer to that question is yes. I've kipled for many a year and hope to keep on kipling for many to come



PS Assuming I have decent speed internet access later today I'll probably upload improved versions. It has been pointed out to me that the HTML could be significantly tidied up.

Thanks FrancisT - this is really appreciated. I love Kipling.

Please let me know the size of the zip file - I started downloading it, but paused when I realised that it appears be huge!

New - vastly improved - versions are now available. TOC, Cover and -
most importantly - a certain amount of poetry that was accidentally
skipped - are now present.

There are a few volumes that still need work.
1) Irish Guards in the Great War, The, Vol.1 and Irish Guards in the
Great War, The, Vol.2 are missing their maps and photos
2) The Just So Stories likewise (this is more important IMO)
3) I need to recreate my "Full Stalky" volume with all the Stalky
stories in it.

Many thanks to Paul Durrant for giving me some hints on how to get the
mobi creation software to work.

Share, Enjoy and please give feedback

Francis

PS One problem - I note that my version of FBReader doesn't seem to do
the word wrap right on these files. Since I don't use FBReader for much
except testing I'm not sure if this was true of the previous files.

any chance of an update? I see that Just So Stories is still missing artwork, and "How the alphabet was Made" really needs the pictures to work...

I've never read Kipling... But he does make exceedingly good cakes.



I think that is what you were after wasn't it Harry?

There's also the complete poetry of Kipling as well! His poetry was as good as his prose.

He is, I think, a lot better known for his poetry than his prose. Or at least, he certainly used to be.
