Converting blog novels to epub

Is there an easy way to do this, or is it just a case of copy and paste every page into a word processor and take it from there?

It's in the form of about 70 separate "pages" all with previous/next links and one master page with links to all pages.

There is no good solution. In Calibre you can create an ebook from scratch by using the RSS feed (it includes images too). That is not exactly good because it doesn't include a usable TOC. I think doing it manually would not only be the easiest way (especially if you use Sigil or other epub creation tools in this subforum).

One solution is to create it in Word or Open Office, use Calibre to convert either file to epub. don't expect images to be easy to handle though.

I sometimes use DownThemAll to collect all the pages at once, and then use various methods to merge them. How well it works depends on how the original site was set up.

Is your html xml-compliant? (<br /> etc).
If so, try creating a new epub in Sigil, go to code view, paste your css into the style section of the head then paste the contents of the bodies of your pages into the body. You'll probably want to remove the prev/next links, but that's easy with search and replace. It might be even easier than that with Sigil 0.2.0.

Thanks all. In the end I downloaded/saved all the pages, then joined them all together with Simple File Joiner. Now I need to go through it and take out all the previous/next stuff.
