Short Fiction Oppenheim, E Phillips: Slane's Long Shots (1930); v1

A collection of stories featuring Slane, the aristocratic amateur detective. 1: Who Killed Montague Brest? 2: The Little Marquis 3: Mariote's Hour of Agony 4: The Thirteenth Card 5: The Man Without a Tie 6: Neap-Tide Madness 7: Not Slane's Star Turn 8: Gentleman Bill 9:...

Short Fiction Oppenheim, E Phillips: A Pulpit in the Grill Room (1938); v1

Ten short stories set in the grill room of the Milan Hotel in London. The first nine stories in this collection were "syndicated", and published during the 1930s in British, American, Australian and other magazines. The tenth story was probably written specifically to complete this book collection, and was not published in a magazine until as late as 1967. A sequel, "The Milan Grill Room", was published in 1940. The two books star Louis, the disabled Maitre d', and Charles Lyson, ex-intellige...

Hello and two puzzles

This is my first post here, and I was hoping someone could help me with my current problem. I'm converting a book from Word to EPUB using Calibre. I have come across two minor problems that seem to be bugs, although I may just be missing something. I thought if I described them here there might be someone else who had encountered them. If necessary I can send the EPUB file for someone to look at. The first problem is that at the end of some but not all chapters the EPUB puts a number. Sometime...

interesting blog post by Ilona Andrews about the economics of KU

I found this blog post interesting: http://www.ilona-andrews.com/ku-availability/ It's by Ilona Andrews (husband and wife team, best known for their conventionally-published Kate Daniels distopia/romance series, but also with some other series) and is about the economics, for them at least, of KU for their non-traditionally published titles. They also talk about the assumed economics for other authors who write differently (faster) than they do. If you don't want to read the post, the short ...

PW3 No USB mount. Can't copy jailbreak files

So, I've got what seems to be a bit of a unique problem on this PW3. The unit itself mostly works fine (Though has a strange reboot when waking up occasionally), but it will not mount the USB when plugged in. The storage itself seems to be OK, I can download books through the experimental browser just fine and they will work without a problem. When I plug in the USB though, I just get the normal USB connected screen, but nothing appears on the PC. The unit then appears to lock up, even when you ...

President Trump Has to Win the Border Security Fight

Opinion USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- The one thing neither the liberal media nor the Democrats have taken into their calculations about the government shutdown is that President Trump has to win on the border security issue. He has no choice. If it takes six months, it will take six months. If it can be done next Monday, it will be done next Monday. As commander in chief, President Trump has said controlling the southern border is a genuine national security issue and that failure would mean Americ...

DRM removal plugin doesn't work

It was working perfectly and then my hard drive crashed and burned. Sadly, my image backup of the drive was corrupted and I had to reinstall Windows and all my programs. :angry: I reinstalled Calibre and then downloaded the Apprentice Alf DeDRM tool. It shows that it was successfully installed in the plugin page, but when I try to convert a book, I get a pop-up that the book is DRM protected. I have some library books that will expire soon and be lost unless I can get this working. Help gra...

Note taking app & split screen

For users of the Max/Note/Nova — does the handwriting app support split screen? That is, can I have the handwriting app open on the left and another app, say Termux, open on the right? Thanks!

Wrong initial File Structure - Need to Backtrack!

Hi All, I am really new to Calibre, I made a major set up mistake. I made folders in folders to organize ALL my PDF books. I know know they should all be in one folder and let Calibre organize them. If I just cut and past each sub folder up the chain into the main folder, all the JPG folder titles will over right each other, maybe the meta data too!. So would it be best that I just coppied the main PDF, erase everything else, and just reset up in Calibre one by one? I know its a lot of work ...

Specify "Use cover from source file" during bulk conversion

Hi, Is there any way to specify the option "Use cover from source file" during bulk conversion? It only appears to show up when converting individual books, and since I have over 1,200 books in my library this is a bit prohibitive.

First E-Book Reader

Hello everyone! I've started reading books again and decided that I need an E-Book Reader. I'm probably going to be a simple user, as for web browsing and work I have a laptop. This reader would be dedicated only for reading books. I'm mostly interested in a reader that could handle PDF's (not main priority) and read Kindle or ePub books. As I find most of the books I want to read both on Amazon and Kobo so it's not necessary to support both formats. Another crucial feature I need is English-En...

Connecting wirelessly

I regularly transfer books from my desktop Calibre library to my laptop Calibre library. It is usually only a few books at a time so I prefer not to export/import the entire library. I have used the Content Server method and have not been able to find a way to move more than one book at at time. This can be kind of cumbersome when I get behind in moving books. I have found another way that I have not found mentioned any where and am not even sure that it is supposed to work. I start the wirel...

Oasis 2 Battery

The Oasis 2 battery is worse than my 11 inch iPad battery. Sometimes I read on iPad during day to save battery on kindle.

I read kindle oasis at night with light set at 1, had it for year and battery has always been this bad, I love the device but poor battery makes we not want to use it.

Troubleshooting Strange behavier of my Kindle Voyage (page flip)

Hello together, since some months my Kindle Voyage (actual SW) acts a little bit confusing: When I close a book an reopen it again, I see the last page where I have been (that's what I expect). But: When I flip to the next page, my kindle jumps to the second page of the next chapter... This happens nearly every time. I checked this with my self made books (sideloaded) and with books I bought from amazon (direct downloaded from amazon). Always the same. I even made a test book (very simple ...

Looking for PDF suggestions

Most manuals come as PDFs. PDFs are not first class citizens in Apple's "Books". On the Mac, when you open the PDF, it opens in Preview. You can not save a bookmark. On iOS, there are features like adding notes and high lights that you can do with other formats (I guess epub?) but not with PDFs. Last... if I read part of a PDF on the Mac, the page is not synced up with iOS. From this point, there are so many different choices that it becomes bewildering but lets try to keep using "Books". ...
