A small-time thief named Danny Briggs finds the unfinished epic poem of Black Orpheus, chronicling all the bigger-than-life characters that live and die on the galaxy’s Inner Frontier – and the biggest of them all was Santiago, the notorious King of the Outlaws. Danny unearths the secret not only of Santiago’s identity, but also his purpose, and he sets out to finish the epic by finding and anointing a new Santiago. There are a lot of colorful candidates – The One-Armed Bandit, Silvermane, Tyrannosaur Bailey, others – and there are enemies galore. And Danny and his new partner, Waltzin'’Matilda, soon find that choosing a Santiago is a far cry from controlling him.

    I have no idea. I know I can read both types on my PC, but, computer semi-literate that I am, I have no idea what a Microsoft reader is.

    Try Calibre to convert epub to .lit for Microsoft Reader.

  4. Jim Manning says:

    There seem to be 4 or 5 major formats of e-books around at the moment. I have selected MobiPcket because it offers ergonomic options not yet available in the more recently offered readers. (Mobi format is often labeled as Kindle format but i am never sure without it saying Kindle/mobipocket) reader format as my preferred format. Microsoft Reader Format is one of the less popular formats that is still around. Microsoft gives their reader to any who wish to use that format. Amazon.com gives a reader compatable with their format as well. and similar with Sony and Barns & Nobel. Most of these has distinct features which others formats lack.
    Microsoft reader format by reputation (I have not tested it myself) is supposed to be more secure than any other format. It seems to have become less common of late.
    Mobipocket reader allows features such as index, calculation and conversion functions for math, science and engineering types such as myself. and complete freedom to choose background and foregrouind colors for your personalized display.
    Nook Format is the same thing as e-pub by Adobe. its quite common and seems to be preferred by the IPAD. the B/W Nook requires this format as well.

      (Mobi format is often labeled as Kindle format but i am never sure without it saying Kindle/mobipocket)

      For what it’s worth (anecdotal evidence is the best!), I have downloaded dozens of .mobi-format books from Project Gutenberg to a Kindle, and never had a problem that was related to that fact. [A faulty scan that also showed up in the HTML version, bad OCR, etc., sure, but not "well it claims to be Kindle, BUT..."]

      I’m not sure if this will let me post links without getting flagged for spam, so let me just say that, if you’ve never been there before, gutenberg dot org should become your newest best friend.

    • Mike says:

      I enjoyed editing the Whatdunit books, but I do not control the rights on them. Those rights belong either to Tekno Books (the late Marty Greenberg’s company) or DAW Books, and it would be up to whichever of them currently controls the rights to arrange e-book publication.
