      Greetings and salutations,

      I found some science fiction torrents and mostly out of curiosity I downloaded them to see what was there. I found some Chandler stuff in one.

      A. Bertram Chandler - The Winds of If.pdf
      A. Bertram Chandler - Two Can Play.pdf

      I have no idea what order to read any of that in. What is the status of his works and estate.

      I presume the book publishing business has a problem with this and e-book readers. I prefer reading on my PMA400 to paperback books. I have to convert PDFs to TXT though.

      I have bought recent stuff on the basis of what was said about them on the internet and mostly been disappointed. My theory is that sci-fi has been invaded by liberal arts majors who presume to tell people what sci-fi is. Apparently they can get these post-Star Wars kiddies to listen to them.

      I find it difficult to imagine I never ran across Chandler since I started reading SF in 1961 but he doesn't ring a bell. Maybe something will come back if I read one of these, there must be lots of stuff I have forgotten.

      Those Chandler files come to 5 megabytes but how long does it take to read 5 gigabytes? LOL A lot of that stuff must be fantasy there are two many authors I don't recognize.
