When I promised to start making ebooks of some of the posts in this blog's (gulp) ten-year-old archives, I thought I'd get on that in a few weeks. Six months later, I've finally done it! the E-Books tab has been updated with three new collections: the series Back Through the Wormhole and Let's See What's Out There, in which I reflected on the Star Trek series Deep Space Nine and The Next Generation, and Austen and Friends, a collection of my reviews of Jane Austen's novels and other related books. All three ebooks are available in epub and mobi formats.
Please let me know if there are formatting issues or problems downloading any of the ebooks, and if you have comments on the contents. It was an interesting experience, going back to my old writing to edit and format it for these collections. In some cases, posts that I wrote ten years ago, when I was still working out what I wanted this blog to be, still resonated with me. In other instances, things that I wrote just a few years ago struck me as misguided. I've made some alterations to the original texts where I felt that they were making points that I genuinely couldn't stand by anymore, but mostly I've left them as they were, as a testament to how I used to think, and how I hope I've grown as a writer.
If you have any ideas about what subject should be collected next, I'd love to hear them, though maybe this time I shouldn't promise to be too swift about it.
