Archibald, Joe: Cursed Edition. v1. 27 Dec 08
This title was released under a Creative Commons License with a link to the book here. There is additional acknowledgement AND a link again placed at the end of the book. Book was acquired from Munseys, BUT REFORMATTED BY ME TO MY SPECIFICATIONS.
This is a mystery short story, originally published in 10-Story Detective, in 1945.
Here's the blurb from the story:
"Alvin Hinkey, the understudy flatfoot, would rather do his research in a beer-parlor than a book-hall. But when Hinkey borrowed a crook-book from the library, he seemed slated to drink in its sinister wisdom only out of a Roscoe's muzzle."
It looks like a pleasant little read, especially since it deals with timeless ingredients: beer, books, crooks, and flatfeet.
Like all the books I assemble on MobileRead, this too was assembled to reflect human intervention and artistic judgment.
I hope you enjoy it.
