Post Wodehouse, P.G.: The Swoop!, or How Clarence Saved England. v2 25 Aug 2008

Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse (1881-1975) was a popular English comic writer. His books are usually set around pre-war upper-class English society.

"The Swoop!, or How Clarence Saved England" is a short comic novel published in 1909. No fewer than 9 different armies invade England on the same day, but the boy scout Clarence Chugwater manages to save his homeland. A funny light read for the summer.

I created this version from the PG text, which has very few mistakes. (I checked, where possible with a version in Google books. Interestingly, the main Amazon version of this book seems to be just a poorly formatted copy of the PG text.) I added curly quotes and some formatting, and a TOC, of course. I hope the formatting comes out fine in all devices, I only really tested it on my Cybook. By the way, this was created with mobiperl from the hand-written HTML file.

Any kind of feedback is welcome.

EDIT (v2):

Fixed a problem with non breaking spaces.
