This looks like a good place to make this request. Don't make me start a new thread! I am looking for recommendations for authors in the mobileread e-books section for Mystery and Westerns. I have downloaded a Max Brand so far and that looks like he will be pretty good.

John Buchan is an author you may enjoy. He's the author of a series of mystery/suspense novels starring Richard Hannay, a British secret agent. The first of these novels -- The 39 Steps -- is the best known, having been made into a successful movie by Alfred Hitchcock. Download the omnibus edition of all the Richard Hannay novels for your Sony PRS 505 at https://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=10664. I'm also very fond of Wilkie Collins. There are 37 "books" by Collins in the MobileRead library. (I put "books" in quotes because I'm not sure if they are all novels or if some are short stories.)

Are you aware that you can sort the eBooks section by genre? Start at https://www.mobileread.com/forums/ebo...&sort=dateline and then pick your genre from the pull-down. Not all books have been classified, but many of the mysteries and westerns are identified as such. (Hmmm... wonder if we have any mysterious westerns??)

Thanks Elsi! I know about the sort but I still need to know about the authors!
