Hi all,

I'm assuming this is the right place to discuss books.

I've seen a few excellent public domain books that I just wanted to
mention in case others might care to give them a look:

"Lady Molly of Scotland Yard" by Baroness Orczy

I got the notion of reading this via a 1970's BBC series called "The
Rivals of Sherlock Holmes". Well done TV program. The Baroness, who is
much better known for "The Scarlet Pimpernel," can certainly write an
entertaining mystery story and Lady Molly is a great detective.

"The Dorrington Deed-Box" by Arthur Morrison

Another one picked up from "Rivals of Sherlock Holmes". Rather
interesting if for no other reason than the central character in the
stories is, well, pretty much a scoundrel who passes himself off as a
detective.

"Max Carrados" by Ernst Bramah

I'm sure some of you are spotting a trend--yet another one discovered
from "Rivals of Sherlock Holmes". I have to hand it to Victorian
authors; they had a wide breadth of creative and novel approaches to the
detective story. In this case the detective, Max Carrados, is blind but
he's as good at his job as any sighted detective.

"The New Arabian Nights" by Robert Louis Stevenson

This one I discovered via Golden Age radio. There were several
dramatizations of the first story in this book "The Suicide Club" and
since I found the story so compelling as drama I decided to read the
book it came from. A good decision on my part.

Anyone else have suggestions for good public domain reading?

Just as you say, and I should also mention "http://gutenberg.org" as a
place to find such books.

A lot has changed in the world since "The Classics", were published,
religion has largely faded away. Romance has changed since the arrival
of the pill, and the modern theme of meeting a person and joining them
in having sex with them on the same evening has taken the charm of
relationships away. No

Gutenberg has more common books in text format, what can usually

be found in reprinted form in books.

archive.org is my first choice followed by

books.google.com

They have facsimiles of books and magazines
that have never been reprinted since the original
copies.
