Mystery and Crime Oppenheim, E Phillips: The Colossus of Arcadia (1938); v1

Classic Oppenheim novel: the setting is Monte Carlo, and in the late 1930s with Europe's peace becoming more precarious by the day, there are spies and counterspies, well-heeled refugees. In short, there is trouble in Arcadia. I couldn't find a good original cover so I made this one from a part of 1930s Monaco travel poster Attached Files The Colossus Of Arcadia - E Phillips Oppenheim.epub (480.3 KB)

This is the first release for this plugin and the most complex UI I've written to date. It's sure to have a few bugs, and I expect complaints about my UI. Constructive criticism greatly appreciated!

Short Fiction Oppenheim, E Phillips: Michael's Evil Deeds (1923), v1

Originally published as a series of connected short stories, in Red Book Magazine in 1921, this is a typical episodic novel which involves a prolonged duel between Michael Sayers, crook, and Norman Greyes, policeman. The narrative makes use of multiple narrators: Sayers, Greyes or another as each story requires. (The fact that there are only a small number of chapters tells an alert reader that these are essentially short stories, as a typical Oppenheim novel runs to 25-35 chapters.) 1. The Und...

fields for metadata: synopsis, author's words, post scriptum, etc.

I have a huge calibre library of manually entered free content. Most of my library items have multi line text for a variety of purposes. But the TOP-THREE are listed below: 1) synopsis 2) author's words 3) post scriptum I have always used the brutally-simple approach of copy+paste into the "Comments" field. and this works. Except as my library has grown closet to 10k titles, I'm finding the comments field used to make MY-OWN-COMMENTS as the reader. But this just creates sprawl in the comme...

Epub formatting issue for PRS-350

So I have the same epub on two readers, one is a PRS-350, and the other is a PRS-T2. The epub will show a little space between sections as intended between separate scenes in the book. My PRS-T2 shows it just fine, but the PRS-350 does not. Does anyone know what I can do to make it show up on both the same way? It's a minor annoyance, but something I am hoping is easy to fix. See pics, where the line starts with "Keech". Attached Thumbnails   ...

Capacitive Ereaders + Active Capacitive Stylus?

Hi: I can't seem to find if anyone has tried to use one of these new Active Capacitive Styluses (Reflective Electro Static) such as the "Bamboo Tip" or any of the various chinese variants on a capacitive ereader. I understand that these are made for android devices with either ips/etc touchscreens rather than e-ink but does it matter when there is a capacitive layer above it? Besides the tradeoff of potentially more lag, no thickness pressure and no palm rejection it would be nice to chose t...

Green Man for January

I’m needing a little green in the middle of January. I got inspired to give him a head garland by this photo in Arcadia Britannica, a book of modern British folklore portraits. He has a leaf bead and a variegated embroidered vine belt.

Setting The Record Straight, NRA Haters You’re a Problem

Opinion Setting The Record Straight, NRA Haters You're a Problem USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- I’ve had it with the attacks on the NRA, I expect it from “The Trace” and “Mother Jones,” but I find it repugnant when so-called 2A supporters use those questionable sources to scorch the NRA. The simple fact is that without the NRA you will lose your right to own a firearm. Don’t give us that crap about you’ll never give in, that you’ll stand your ground. Bull shit we can’t get most of you to vote. Half ...

China has a very Orwellian reason for banning typing "1984" on social media, while allowing people to read Nineteen Eighty-Four

Chinese internet users can't type the numbers "1984" into social media, but Chinese bookstores freely sell copies of Orwell's novels, including Nineteen Eighty-Four, as well as other books whose titles are banned on social media. In Nineteen Eighty-Four, the inner Party members are allowed to read the literature that is banned for consumption by proles and outer Party members, and the same is true in China: the Politburo treats books as the purview of intellectual elites, who are on the on...

Converted to Kindle format (MOBI or other), won’t show up as “book”

I have searched everywhere for answers, and have only found dates information at best. My ultimate goal here is to get Whispersync for VOICE to work between an Audible audiobook (it has Whispersync, according to their library) and an e-book sideloaded into the kindle app on iOS devices (iPad and iPhone). The best info I can come up with says it won’t work because my sideloading has this far only yielded a ‘document’ in kindle, not an actual ‘book’. I’ve tried removing the [PDOC] tag in the M...

CFI Parser

Hi, @Kovid. I want to modify ACE Plugin so it can output the results directly on the Editor. This way the user could click on the line and go directly to where the error is (like EPUBCheck Plugin). But, there is one thing on the way: ACE uses a non-standard EPUBCFI output. The starting point is not the spine. It uses CFI references only inside the file, like this: Code: toc.xhtml#epubcfi(/4[idParaDest-e]/2/4[toc]) Doc.xhtml#epubcfi(/4[idParaDest-b]/2/2/4[tit]/4) The idea was to use you...

How can I change permanently pocketnews.css?
