Note: The pages are starting to take shape and the actual text files are starting to arrive. So far, however, most links to actual files are not ready yet. Below are links to the sections that have actual content. I'm working on a pretty good collection of Christian writing from the likes of Calvin, Newton, Kempis, and Luther plus all the Early Church Fathers. Some of these documents are fairly long and loading them in your browser may take a little while depending on your connection speed.
- The Aeneid, by Virgil (621K)
- The Art of War, by Sun Tzu. This is the Gutenberg text number 17405 converted to HTML by me. (64K)
- Edwin A. Abbott, Flatland.
- Rudyard Kipling, Captains Courageous, Stalky and Co., The Jungle Book, Just So Stories and more (20 books so far).
- L.M. Montgomery including six of the eight Anne Shirley books, two Chronicles of Avonlea books, and three others for a total of eleven books.
- Robert Louis Stevenson, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.
- H. G. Wells, The War of the Worlds.
- The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle (545K) This is a remarkable document. It has entries for many years starting as early as A.D. 1 but really picking up steam in the seventh century. Many, particularly of the early years, are a single line but others contain multiple long entries. Very interesting.
