Out of the Silence

by Erle Cox

A masterpiece. Looked it up after reading and this book turns out to have been published in Australia, UK and USA by popular demand at the time.

Reviled by many as racist (the bad guys practice eugenics) it is also sexist but apparently that went by the board in 1914.

Refreshingly Australian. Wide-screen Lost-World/Time Travel/hard SF. Very well written.

The Daughter of a Magnate

by Frank H. Spearman

Frank Spearman's railroad stories move right along. Maybe not "timeless," per se, but action-packed and very well written.

When I first got my Sony Reader, they were among the first ones I looked for to download and now Here They Are! Woo hoo!

This is a most excellent story, by a rather forgotten author. I'm delighted to see it in e-book format at last (the cover illustration looks just like the hard copy re-issue I bought maybe 10 yrs. ago). Spearman's railroad stories are well above average in entertainment value. Looking forward to "Daughter of a Magnate," &c. I'd upload them myself, but I have quite a lot to learn first.
