Free ebooks, audiobooks.

Total downloads, that we have been able to track, of the books in the Green Comet trilogy have reached thirty-six thousand. The rate is not what it once was, but it’s encouraging that it continues to be of interest. Thank you. Pass it on.

It would be interesting to see what the numbers look like in the “illegal” downloads area. Funny, too. Why would they do that when they’re encouraged to download the books for free from here?

The audiobook version of the novel Green Comet is now available in an improved and remastered form. It is also available as a direct download from this site rather than by a link to the Internet Archive. The original version was not bad and it received many compliments from listeners who found my voice both professional and pleasant to listen to. This remaster benefits from a more strict adherence to the audio standards generally accepted in the audiobook industry. It has also been cleaned up and freed from some lingering glitches. The result is something that I’m proud to present to the world.

Please visit the Books for Free page and download the Green Comet AUDIOBOOK in both MP3 and OGG Vorbis formats. They come with the individual chapters bound in ZIP archives.

I will be remastering the other two books in the Green Comet trilogy as I find the time. Look for improved audiobooks of Parasite Puppeteers and The Francesians in the coming months.

As I announced last Fall, David, at Artifacs Libros has been translating the Green Comet trilogy. After enduring the trials of this exceptional year, he wrote to let me know that he has finished translating the third volume — The Francesians. I have had a look at it and, as with the first two, it appears to be well done. The layout is good. The modifications to the cover are good. The front matter is better than the original. However, since I can’t read Spanish I can’t say anything about the translation itself. I ran the Green Comet translation — Cometa Verde — through a translator to see how it looked back in English, and found it to be quite different from the original. That makes sense when I think about it.

Given that, I would really appreciate it if any of you who can read Spanish would download Los Francesianos and let the rest of us know what you think.

That completes the translation of the trilogy into Spanish. Please help me thank David for his hard work. It gives me a good feeling to know that these books will be accessible by another large group of people. Here are the three books:

Cometa Verde
Titiriteros Parásitos
Los Francesianos

Please download them and let David know how good you think they are.

Thank you.

As I announced last Fall, David, at Artifacs Libros is translating the Green Comet trilogy. Today he contacted me to let me know that he has finished translating the first volume — Green Comet. I have had a look at it and it appears to be well done. The layout is good. The modifications to the cover are good. The front matter is better than the original. However, since I can’t read Spanish I can’t say anything about the translation itself. I’m thinking of running it through a translator and seeing how it looks back in English again.

Meanwhile, I would really appreciate it if any of you who can read Spanish would download Cometa Verde and let the rest of us know what you think.

Thank you.
