Akutagawa, Ryunosuke: Yabu no Naka (Japanese). v1. 28 Sept 2009

This is a Japanese text version of Akutagawa's (芥川) Yabu no Naka (藪の中) (en: "In a Grove"). It is basically the same version that is available from Feedbooks, but I've embedded the open source "Kochi Gothic" Japanese font into the file, so that it will automatically display correctly using e-readers (at least the Sony Readers).

One issue, however, is that although the book will display correctly when reading, the title will appear only as place-holder characters in the book menu, because the reader lacks a Japanese font.

Because of the embedded font, which is large, the epub file is also large.

An English version of the story is also available on Feedbooks.

10/11/2009 - uploaded a version with "(yabu no naka + font)" appended to the title, so that something readable will appear even on reading systems that don't have japanese fonts.
