Barsoom series

So here it comes! The first eBook from the series I have formatted is the The Master Mind of Mars. A graphical cover is there, chapters are beginning on a new page, etc... I have tried to make it look more professional than the original text version.

I used the text from Project Gutenberg Australia and the image is a scan of the old book cover. I am not aware of any copyright issue since both image and original text are really old, but make sure that you check the laws in your country before downloading.

I have tested it with the Sony eBook Reader and looks just fine. Should you encounter any formatting errors on other devices, please let me know and I will do my best to correct them.

Creating eBooks from Edgar Rice Burroughs bibliography

Hello everybody! Being a fan of Edgar Rice Burroughs I had the problem that no nicely formated eBooks can be found. The texts are free, all available on Project Gutenberg, but the eBooks I could find are without covers, no pictures and so on.

So I said to myself, why not – let me do something about it. I have started creating my very first ebook and will be publishing it here in few days. So check again soon!

If you wish to contribute, please let me know. Any help is appreciated. Especially I would be really happy if someone is wishing to create some illustrations for the books. All the work here will remain free for everyone – I do not intend to make money out of it, but to make a great piece of literature easy to read for everyone.

Please be aware that copyright laws around the world are not the same! Check the copyright laws before you download these books.
