This is a list of my 'library' -- the books that I possess a copy of (physically &/or digitally).
The digital copies are plain text files (.txt) in UTF-8 charset. They aren't available for download here,
but if I have one you'd like, please let me know: cjspratt at hotmail.com

DISCLAIMER: This is somewhat long-winded, but bear with me...
With a few exceptions (see 'color guide'), I own hardcopy versions of most of the books listed here. I like having paper books (call me old-fashioned), but I also like having them as txt files because I can carry around large numbers of stories without lugging fifty pounds of printed material wherever I go. I acquired some of these txt files from other sources, but a lot of them I actually scanned and converted directly from my own book collection. This is quite a labor-intensive effort, and I can sympathize with others wanting to skip that step. That being said, if you choose to acquire a "virtual" copy of one of these stories without (or instead of) obtaining an "official" printed or digital copy, you are depriving the book industry (publishers, editors, authors, etc) of their due profits for bringing us the story in the first place. I'll certainly send you whatever stories you request, but if you like them that much, you should consider investing in the Real Thing. (Check you local Half-Price Books or garage/tag sales if you don't want to buy them new.) Getting off my soap box now...

Some of these books are old enough that they have passed into public domain (US: published 95+ years ago or published before 1963 and not renewed; most countries: author died 70+ years ago; worldwide: author died 100+ years ago), which means they are no longer protected by copyright. These stories can be accessed at Project Gutenberg by clicking the associated 'public domain' links [PD] when available.

Color Guide:

Unhighlighted= physical library only.
Light Grey= physical library, not a txt candidate.
Yellow= physical library & txt file.
Green= small txt file from larger story/book/collection.
Blue= txt file only (no physical copy).
Greyed= books I want but don't own (yet).
