convenient collection of both Forster's novels & short stories in eBook format; i was looking for an eBook copy of "The Machine Stops" to read, but bought this collection so i could reread the excellent novels. however, i was deeply disappointed to find multiple typographical errors in the text, such as several words with symbols instead of the letter, the word Form being substituted for From, and even a repeat of a paragraph which made me wonder of there were portions of the original author's text missing. these errors did reduce my enjoyment of reading. however i enjoyed thoroughly the story of "The Machine Stops". i acknowledge the irony of reading this story about a future people's dependence on antique mechanical devices on a modern electronic device. this cultural dependence that disallowed any book other than the "Book of the Machine" whose sole subject was the Machine itself. and so i can forgive any glitches in text which only served as reminders that i was not reading a paper copy.
