Free classic Dr Who e-books from the BBC
Get some great science fiction e-books in multiple formats for free. They are available at this BBC e-book page. Books listed there right now are:
* The Well-Mannered War (segments only)
* Human Nature (segments only)
* Lungbarrow (segments only)
* Scales of Injustice (segments only)
* The Sands of Time (directly from main e-book page)
* Empire of Glass
* The Dying Days (segments only)
The books are mostly available in PalmReader, Microsoft Reader and MobiPocket formats. Note that Sands of Time has a seperate link on the main e-book page for the complete book.
The indicated books are in chapter segments only due to rights issues, but there is a text-only page for Lungbarrow suited very nicely for iSiloX extraction. The others in segments only take a little more work than I was willing to do at the moment.

The ones that do have formats for an eBook reader do not have open formats. They use PalmReader instead of PalmDOC, so you can't reverse the format to make something useful out of it. The only format that I could see that was useful was (surprisingly) lit, since I could de-lit it into HTML and reformat it for my iLiad.
But I do applaud the BBC for at least trying.

"Nightshade", "Sands of Time" and "Empire of Glass" have Mobipocket versions. I'll check those out first!

Who Killed Kennedy
There's another Doctor Who novel "Who Killed Kennedy" available online in segments at http://nzdwfc.tetrap.com/archive/wkk/
That one's very good. I was always very fond of Nightshade too. Mark Gatiss has contributed a couple of scripts to the new TV series of late (as has Paul Cornell)
