New Newton eBook editions

Okay, the first installment didn't seem to upload to UNNA at all. Well, I
tried (a dozen times), any idea what's wrong? I got a new installment I
gotta get off my hd...

8 new books, all Newton formats covered, plus original text sources. All
delicious SciFi incl. a bunch of newer works. I'd upload the whole fat 17
MB ZIP-archive to somewhere, if anybody would publish that. Any takers?

Single editions can also be received by mail from


Installment 2 -- General SciFi etc.

Note: Newer titles published under Creative Commons License or GPL or

Carlsson, Chris -- After The Deluge (2004)

Brandnew SciFi: The oceans have risen and changed maps all over the place,
societies morphed beyond recognition, monetary systems have been abandoned.
Oh, and a lot of people have been killed off courtesy of a scientific
mishap. A young man moves into San Francicso seeking something new in his
live -- and also soon seeking an arsonist...
Interesting social scifi that is a mix of eco-futurism and a geeky
sociologist's, ahem, wet dream.

Doctorow, Cory -- 4 Short Stories 2002-04

Four shorts by Cory Doctorow that haven't been around as Newton eBook
before (or at least, I haven't seen them). Contains 0wnz0red (a wiff of
21st cent. cyberpunk?), Liberation spectrum (taking wireless on the road...
and hey -- anarcho-syndicalist American Natives...!), Truncat (a Bitchun
Society story), Anda’s Game (greetings from the new New Economy(TM)!) and
some remarks by the author on Anda’s Game.
Brilliant stuff from one of the better new writers in SciFi (and co-editor
of boingboing.net).

Howell, Greg -- The Human Memoirs (1996)

May have been around as Newton eBook or paperback, but since I couldn't get
hold of a copy, I'd just rolled my own. The whole thing in one package,
which clock in at about 2.800 KB.
US soldier gets wisped to alternative/future world, where felines take the
place of homo sapiens sapiens -- and he takes his guns along (did I mention
he's a US citizen? ;=} )...

Lovecraft, H. P. -- The Temple (1920)

I like my Mars. I like my SciFi. But I also like my Lovecraft. ;=}
This war diary of a German Imperial submarine commander was newtified for
Matt "eBook" Kow -- it's about the TRUE horror lurking under water...

Munro, John -- A Trip to Venus (1897)

Applying a mysterious propellant force, off they go space-a-faring!
Discusses most competently other suggested means of powering space craft,
from explosives to magnetism.

Rockwood, Roy -- Great Marvel Series #5: Lost on the Moon

The previous volume saw them go to Mars, so now going to the Moon doesn't
that big a challenge to our boys -- or does it...?

Rosenbaum, Benjamin - Embracing-the-New (2004)

Short story about art, beliefs and development (or not) in an alien species.

Serviss, Garrett P. - A Columbus of Space

Vintage SciFi: A nerdy guy builds a space craft, more or less abducts three
friends, and off they go across space to reap riches and shoot people. Good
clean fun for the whole family!
