The Adventures of the Infallible Godahl

by Frederick Irving Anderson

Wow, is this guy's stuff great! Each short story contains enough plot, with twists, for at least an entire novel.

Hope more of his books will be coming on-line soon.

The Strange Adventures of Mr. Middleton

by Wardon Allan Curtis

This one is a classic. Very funny. Arabian Nights, indeed; [a]moral in every story.

Very highly recommended.

Where the Blue Begins

by Christopher Morley

Charming, above everything else. Entertaining action, plot.

Additionally contains many beautiful concepts and turns of phrase.

Not only that, provides food for thought on a number of issues.

The Brick Moon

by Edward Everett Hale

Delightfully written in humorously avuncular style. "BM" is the brainchild of public-spirited 1870s New-Englanders who want to launch a visible near-Earth satellite as an aid to navigation.

With enough willing suspension of disbelief, this is fairly plausible: build hollow satellite (brick to survive air-friction temperatures of launch), launch smoothly by means of flywheels...

Not bad at all.
