Project Gutenberg Etexts are usually created from multiple editions,all of which are in the Public Domain in the United States, unless acopyright notice is included. Therefore, we do NOT keep these booksin compliance with any particular paper edition, usually otherwise.

We are now trying to release all our books one month in advanceof the official release dates, for time for better editing.

Please note: neither this list nor its contents are final tillmidnight of the last day of the month of any such announcement.The official release date of all Project Gutenberg Etexts is atMidnight, Central Time, of the last day of the stated month. Apreliminary version may often be posted for suggestion, commentand editing by those who wish to do so. To be sure you have anup to date first edition [xxxxx10x.xxx] please check file sizesin the first week of the next month. Since our ftp program hasa bug in it that scrambles the date [tried to fix and failed] alook at the file size will have to do, but we will try to see anew copy has at least one byte more or less.

Information about Project Gutenberg (one page)

We produce about two million dollars for each hour we work. Thefifty hours is one conservative estimate for how long it we taketo get any etext selected, entered, proofread, edited, copyrightsearched and analyzed, the copyright letters written, etc. Thisprojected audience is one hundred million readers. If our valueper text is nominally estimated at one dollar then we produce $2million dollars per hour this year as we release thirty-two textfiles per month, or 384 more Etexts in 1998 for a total of 1500+If these reach just 10% of the computerized population, then thetotal should reach over 150 billion Etexts given away.

The Goal of Project Gutenberg is to Give Away One Trillion EtextFiles by the December 31, 2001. [10,000 x 100,000,000=Trillion]This is ten thousand titles each to one hundred million readers,which is only 10% of the present number of computer users. 2001should have at least twice as many computer users as that, so itwill require us reaching less than 5% of the users in 2001.

We need your donations more than ever!
