  • Greets!

    Hi! I've just edited an ebook on Antarctic Exploration - a topic that has fascinated me for years - and rather than watch my book get published and then disappear without a trace I thought I would at least mention (plug!) it once on this forum of Antarctic Aficionados! Its called "The Antarctic Exploration Anthology: the Personal Accounts of the Great Antarctic Explorers", and it's available on iBooks and Kobo, (and soon on the Kindle).

    Hello and welcome to the board.

    Link removed, that sort of advertising isn't allowed for newbies I'm afraid, I would also question "editing" as a description.

    Links to 4 ebooks here:

    ...then on the book pages, they can be downloaded for free.

      Hi Paul,

      Thanks. Completely understand removal of the link. I saw that you have some of the e-books available to download for free on the site, but I hasten to add they are in a very different format to the Anthology that I have very definitely just "Edited"!

      While I applaud you for making the texts available for free, the ebooks from Gutenberg generally contain hundreds of spelling and punctuation errors, which I have painstakingly 'edited' from my ebooks, as well as adding a huge selection of original expedition photographs, maps, illustrations, appendices with meteorological measurements, bespoke covers, and active tables of contents.

      This has been a labour of love more than anything else, but I can understand your trepidation, as I have admittedly only just joined the site. I hope I can contribute to this forum in the future! Regards.

        Ah, you came back and used words that appear to human derived

        I may have been hasty (ok, I was).

        Welcome - again.
