Project Gutenberg Etexts are often created from several printed editions, all of which are
confirmed as Public Domain in the US unless a copyright notice is included. Thus, we
usually do not keep etexts in compliance with any particular paper edition.
We are now trying to release all our etexts one year in advance of the official release
dates, leaving time for better editing. Please be encouraged to tell us about any error or
corrections, even years after the official publication date.
Please note neither this listing nor its contents are final til midnight of the last day of the
month of any such announcement. The official release date of all Project Gutenberg
Etexts is at Midnight, Central Time, of the last day of the stated month. A preliminary
version may often be posted for suggestion, comment and editing by those who wish to
do so.
Most people start at our sites at: http://gutenberg.net
or http://promo.net/pg
These Web sites include award-winning information about Project Gutenberg, including
how to donate, how to help produce our new etexts, and how to subscribe to our email
newsletter (free!).
Those of you who want to download any Etext before announcement can get to them as
follows, and just download by date. This is also a good way to get them instantly upon
announcement, as the indexes our cataloguers produce obviously take a while after an
announcement goes out in the Project Gutenberg Newsletter.

We produce about two million dollars for each hour we work. The time it takes us, a
rather conservative estimate, is fifty hours to get any etext selected, entered, proofread,

edited, copyright searched and analyzed, the copyright letters written, etc. Our projected
audience is one hundred million readers. If the value per text is nominally estimated at
one dollar then we produce $2 million dollars per hour in 2001 as we release over 50 new
Etext files per month, or 500 more Etexts in 2000 for a total of 4000+ If they reach just
1-2% of the world's population then the total should reach over 300 billion Etexts given
away by year's end.
The Goal of Project Gutenberg is to Give Away One Trillion Etext Files by December 31,
2001. [10,000 x 100,000,000 = 1 Trillion] This is ten thousand titles each to one hundred
million readers, which is only about 4% of the present number of computer users.
At our revised rates of production, we will reach only one-third of that goal by the end of
2001, or about 4,000 Etexts. We need funding, as well as continued efforts by volunteers,
to maintain or increase our production and reach our goals.
The Project Gutenberg Literary Archive Foundation has been created to secure a future
for Project Gutenberg into the next millennium.
