A Member has requested The Short Stories of John Steinbeck. Another member has requested a long list of books by G. A. Henty. I did some research, and they sound fascinating--wonderful historical fiction for kids or, Bob, YA--or even adults. I read the biography of Henty and his life was both sad and interesting--he was a traveler and a war reporter in the 19th century. He wrote 99 books, all of which are available now on 6 CDs. The reviews of the books were excellent, and they have been republished, in some cases, I believe the nonfiction The March to Magdala and The March to Coomassie with all errors, blurs, etc. But the stories have been republished in the 21st century. Three are already in the collection--ones that were in public domain. I suppose the others are available from PG, though I haven't checked, but it might be nice to have them in the collection. If I ever get caught up with my validating I'd love to validate some. They sound like an ideal way to learn history. Those of you who have kids might like to have them scan and/or validate these.
