Abdullah, Achmed: Achmed Abdulla short stories. V1.2. 26 Jun 2019

Achmed Abdullah (12 May 1881 – 12 May 1945) is an American writer of mystery, crime, and adventure pulps, and screenplays for some successful films. He was born in Kabul, Afghanistan, May 12, 1881, of Arab and Tartar stock. Educated in India, England, France, and Germany. Bachelor of Letters, Sorbonne, Paris. Served in British-Indian and Ottoman armies.

Many of these are from wikisource.org as well as magazines or books on archive.org. A few may be from Roy Glashan's Library in Australia and Project Gutenberg.

The formatting is what I think of as a "Slim 'n Trim" format; no images, no embedded fonts, and I've tried to design the CSS so that there is a minimum of tagging of html elements with classes.

It's an EPUB3 but will hopefully work with an EPUB2 capable reader.

I haven't proofread it yet; feel free to send me any errors or typos you may find.

The first story, Mirza Fateh Khan, had lots of OCR errors. Also the title pages on the Kobo aren't correct with the centering; still scratching my head over that one.

I notice that the stories are in non-chronological order: the last first, and the first last. It just seems a bit odd.

By chronological order do you mean by publication date? It was intentional putting the oldest ones last and newest first.

"Ambassador of poker", a scan from an old magazine, had a ton of typos. I also fixed the initial description; many are from wikisource.org, not just from old magazines.
