Several Txts to One Epub?

I know Calibre can convert 1 text file to 1 epub. But sometimes I've got several dozen txt files. Is there any practical way to convert all these txt files to 1 epub file?

I tried converting the index, and importing the others, but I can't see any way to import them into xhtml.

Thanks.

One way is to convert the individual files and then use the Epub Merge plugin to merge them all into one.

Seconded
Easy, no need to learn to code (but you really should for finer results)

How about "copy file1.txt+file2.txt+file3.txt joined.txt", then convert joined.txt to epub. If you have a lot of files, put them into a directory by themselves and use "copy *.txt joined.txt"

On joining the files into one file, good way to go; even better if you have some consistent heading text at the top of each file (e.g. Chapter #, if that is appropriate). That will make it easier to do a TOC in the ebook.
