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.
http://www.ibiblio.org/gutenberg/etext03
or
ftp://ftp.ibiblio.org/pub/docs/books/gutenberg/etext03

Or /etext02, 01, 00, 99, 98, 97, 96, 95, 94, 93, 92, 92, 91 or 90
Just search by the first five letters of the filename you want, as it
appears in our Newsletters.
Information about Project Gutenberg
(one page)
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.
We need your donations more than ever!
