Here's some more Edgar Wallace for those who love thrillers. I don't have much informatin on this, except for the following from Amazon:

"The Daffodil Mystery (1920) is one of his classic mystery novels, full of devious twists and turns that will keep the reader guessing until the end!"

It's available from a lot of sites, but I thought I'd make it available for our favorite Reader.

PLEASE: If you find problems with this, let me know and I'll try to fix them.

I hope you enjoy it.

Don

I've just started reading one of your books, Don ("Trent's Last Case"). Just wanted to say how much I like the formatting. An excellent job!

Thanks, Harry.

I want eveyone to know that I'm attempting to model my conversions after the wonderful work on the books you contribute. (Any problems, of course, I'm responsible for.) You've made the classics acessible and fun and the Reader the most prominent "book" on my bookshelf!

In fact, I'd like to say to all the members - and to the newcomers who may be visiting - that because of your contributions, you got ME interested in contributing "Reader-made" books, and in wanting to further my understanding of the subtle Zen characteristics of BookDesigner.

Thanks, Harry.

Here, here! What a perfect way to put it... "You've made the classics acessible and fun and the Reader the most prominent "book" on my bookshelf!" Great job Harry, and all who are contributing.

I'm ecstatic about these books for the Reader. Just when I had convinced myself that the text in any form is good enough, these books prove to me that I really do care what it looks like. And I'm more excited about reading the classics than ever before.

Hi Don,

PG have just released a significantly revised version of this book. Would you like to "upgrade" your version, or shall I do a version myself? Happy to do either - whatever suits you best!

If you don't mind - and if it won't take too much out of your own time for the other titles that you are working on - then it would be great if you did it due to the uniform "look" you've created with all of Edgar Wallace's titles.

I also don't mind you deleting my version. That would be fine with me.

Thanks,
Don

Happy to do it!

Are you sure that you want your version deleting? Nice to give people the choice. Whatever suits you.

Seriously, it makes no difference....

In fact, regarding chocies, I find that I HAVE to make links for Moby Dick...I lie sleepless at night, dreaming of links, wanting links, needing links. I write imaginary emails wherein the links respond to me. Imagine, if you will, a world where one is unable to jump from Chapter IV directly back to the CONTENTS page of a book!!!????

I would marry a link if I could find one.

Ok - you can leave mine.

Don
