Greetings all! Below you will find my version of Project Gutenberg's Science Fiction Bookshelf. Why do I mirror these books here, rather than just go to Gutenberg's website to get them? There are a couple of reasons I do this. First, not all of the ebooks books have covers in the files, so if you have an ebook reader that will display a thumbnail of the book when you are browsing your books, it won't show you anything very informative. I add a cover with the title and author to any that is lacking same. Second, Project Gutenberg organizes the files with numbers, so if you save the file to disk, you'll see something like pg6547.epub, so if you are attempting to copy the files from one device to another, you can run into a situation where you have a bunch of files in a directory that all have almost identical names, and you can't really tell one from the other just by looking at it. Instead, I name the files with the format "Author-Title.epub". This makes it much easier to tell what is what. One additional note is that Project Gutenberg makes the titles available in several different formats. Since I'm doing this primarily for myself, and I only read epubs, that is pretty much all you'll find here. If you find this to be useful, that is most excellent. I know I will.

Gutenberg is always adding new titles, so my list won't always be completely up-to-date, but this list is current as of 4/26/16. I plan to continue updating it, probably monthly.
