Thanks, TadW.
and a special thanks to TOR for this program. They and BAEN books seem to have discovered (if I am typical) that this is a marvelous way to introduce the authors to a new group of readers and to build readership.
U R Appreciated.

The only places I used to get my SciFi was Fictionwise and after I got my Kindle, Amazon. Now because of MR I found TOR and BAEN. I can always use more Vampires and Werewolves.

This is an awesome find! Not just the e-books, but the artwork! Some of that is hauntingly beautiful. Magnificent!

Actually, we agree with you! We don't condone pirating books here at MobileRead, and if pirate links are given, we moderate and expect other readers to help us spot such cases. These are legit free offerings.

I think HappyMartin implied that with legit offers as great as Tor's, there is no additional need to acquire pirated content.

In order to read Three Shadows in Mobipocket reader I had to rename the .zip to .epub and then drag and drop the file to Mobi, whereupon Mobi converted it to .prc

Beware it's 34Mb in size!

It down loaded as an .epub for me. If you right click on the .epub file and select "open with" -> MobiPocket Reader the ePub is converted to a MOBI (.prc). Or you can open Mobipocket Reader on its own and under ebooks select import (there should be an epub option). Note that ePub import is a recent addition, so you need the latest Windows MobiPocket Reader. The latest mobigen.exe also works, and produces the same file. Mobipocket does not preserve the TOC of imported ePub files, but that does not matter in this case.

Ok, Maybe I am making this harder than it should be. I downloaded all the books, However how do I change the Title? They show up with the numeric title. Now Safari gives me the option to save as PDF and Change the Title but then I do not get the Cover Art it shows up formated as a printed page. Any Ideas?

I was so glad to see that Tor also reoffered all the wallpaper. I had downloaded it in the wrong size for my widescreen monitor but now I have all my wallpaper in the wide format. Yippee!

So is there any downside to downloading in .prc instead of html for converting to lrf ?

I don't have the answer for you but you could download both. I have the mobi and Kindle versions of all of the books.
