Good Book

I had to wait about one minute for this book to open. If you are patient it will open for you.

Warning: Halcyon Press Books won't open!!!!

I found three books from this publisher that I really would like to have read. Unfortunately none of them will open. I had thought it might be due to the size of the files, but other books I have downloaded that are equally large are fine. All three of these hang up ...
I found three books from this publisher that I really would like to have read. Unfortunately none of them will open. I had thought it might be due to the size of the files, but other books I have downloaded that are equally large are fine. All three of these hang up my Nook, and the only way I can get out of it is to turn the device off. I tried going through the techs with the first one, but nothing worked. I went to check a review of one of the books, only to discover that everyone who downloaded the book had that problem. One reader was told the problem's on the publisher's end and once it gets solved, the books will open. So now I have three books that look great and enticing, but can't get open. I'm only giving this one star, but I'm sure I'd rate it higher if I could read it.

    Duplicate story

    Worked fine and Harrison is always a fun read. Unfortunately, the first story is also the last one. It is also the longest, so not really as much content as it first appears.

    Great to have them on an e-book

    I purchased/downloaded and opened this ebook today, 10/22/2010. I am on the latest firmware/version for the Nook. Did not have to do anything out of the ordinary.

    As to the stories, classic Harry Harrison. I have most of these in tree form and read the deathworld trilogy every few years. New readers will enjoy the sense of humor that Harrison puts into his characters.

    Great to read an old friend again.

    Re visiting these stories was a pleasure the plot and characters of Mr. Harrison's creation are interesting and always entertaining. Jason DeGris is one of my favorite sci-fi characters.

    Formatting is borked. Stories are great.

    The stories are very good, but the formatting of the e-book is all messed up. The links do not work, the page numbers have nothing to do with reality.

    It was great rereading these stories from my youth. It would be better if the third book of the trilogy was included!!!
