The Internet Archive is one of the noblest undertakings on the entire Internet: a non-profit enterprise aimed at preserving everything that was every published, as well as making available all the knowledge of the world. And I am now pleased to be able to say that I have made my own tiny, humble contribution (other than all the content the Internet Wayback Machine may have gotten from sites I’ve run) to this mighty effort. It is a high-resolution PDF version of The Apsinthion Protocol, the entire volume, complete with a new volume cover executed by Lon Ryden.

You can follow this link (or click on the image above) to be taken to the Archive page for the work. It’s there in the original PDF in high resolution — a large download, but you can run it quietly in the background. And the Archive has also automatically converted it to a variety of other formats for e-readers, and will also allow you to read it directly on screen.
I feel very hopeful about this publication experiment, and if it works at all well I’ll soon be providing additional volumes for Study Abroad, Progress in Research, Invisible Girl, Heroine, and, when it completes its run at the end of this month, Gnosis Dreamscapes. If you happen to download, I’d be grateful for any commentary or feedback you might have on this new mode of publication. You can either leave me a comment on this post or get in touch with me by other means.
