Other A. Maynard Barbour's Books Available Somewhere?
There are two available here:
"At the Time Appointed" and "That Mainwaring Affair."
But Barbour has written two more:
"The Award of Justice; Or, Told in the Rockies: A Pen Picture of the West" (1897), and "Breakers Ahead" (1906)
Anyone know if these are available as ebooks anywhere?

I did a quick search via Google and found Breakers Ahead is available at Google Books. You can download a PDF or ask Google to display the text only. (They use an automated process to OCR the PDF to text.)
Given that Sony has announced a partnership with Google Books, I then went to my Sony eBook Library software and searched the "free classics" for Maynard Barbour and found five books available:
I will point out that the automatic OCR conversion done by Google Books produces an low-quality book. But, you can explode the ePub book, open the HTML files in a text editor, and make the appropriate hand-edits to significantly improve the book. Of course, you are encouraged to share your improved version by uploading here!
