"Sci-Fi: Stockpile for the Nook Collection" has EVERY SINGLE ONE of these stories in it plus at least 100 more, and for a dollar less. I bought both without comparing the lists, and realized that had bought the exact same thing twice, except THIS version costs more and has fewer stories.

I came back yesterday, after purchasing this e-book a few weeks back, wanting to write a poor review. Then I noticed the description said the formatting had been fixed. I decided to download it again, and I am happy that I did. The formatting is a hundred times better now. It is actually readable instead of a headache.

It's a fantastic collection but nearly impossible to read because of the formatting. The font is a large-sized light classic (aka typewriter-ish) and the lines are all different lengths, sometimes with only a couple words per line. You can't change the font to something readable, either. Talk about eye strain. For other reviewers who shrugged and said "hey, but you can't beat the price", actually, you can. All of these stories are in public domain and you can download them to your nook for free, in a format that's easy to read.

All of these are in the public domain. Why buy them?

This is ventage Sci-fi at its best. Go back to when Venus was a tropical Jungle, Mars has canals, and you could buy a used atomic rocket. The good guys could overcome impossible odds and always got the girl. Second childhoods can be fun.

Some of the folks who posted that there is no Table of contents for this collection need to read their Nook manual on how to access it. The first two books in this collection don't even belong here as I wouldn't classify them as SciFi. The third story by Ayn Rand is corrupted and unreadable and when I attempt to read any of the others I get booted out to the Home screen. I want my money back even though it was only $3.99....

It looks fine to me. What a great selection of classics for the price.

This book should not be sold unless they format it for a book reader which isn't the case...every other line is short..no justification or good sentence structure and light colored font (light classic?) which incidentally cannot be changed to either of the 2 fonts in the preference section..the selection of books is fantastic...but could be very hard on the eyes and brain after awhile with the crap formatting

If this particular file wasn't so screwed up, i'd push this to five stars. As it is, there are several stories that have been corrupted, the text appearing as a small column straight down the center of the page and rendering the story unreadable. These stories are: Ayn rand's Anthem, Jack London's The Iron Heel, H.G. Wells' When the Sleeper Wakes, The World Set Free, Planet of the Damned, & The Door Through Space.

Contacted customer support and had an employee do the same to get the formatting fixed for several of the stories but so far have been ignored. On quite a few of the stories the text shows up in a thin strip down the center of your nook no matter what settings you change. Making it pretty mich unreadable. If it is ever fixed this will be a great buy.

A little spot - one story came through with a bad format I couldn't read. But I have been introduced to some things I had never read, and some classics about which I had forgotten. And there is a powerful amount here to read.
