I assure you, Branko, that Mr. Hart looked at the published book of poetry and thought it worthy enough to get a second life through Project Gutenberg; that I then had to show the merit of the prose by having it closely scrutinized by Greg Newby; that I spent two years revising Gabriele for Project Gutenberg and one year getting a good revision of Corpus; and that a librarian and a brilliant editor in Canada helped me edit all three books to get them to the point where they were taken by Project Gutenberg. I also want to reassure you that I have stated numerous times to all the high administrators at Project Gutenberg not to include the work unless it matched the highest standards. Ultimately it was Dr. Greg Newby who put all three books on the site and no one else. As I have recently learned there are around 100 contemporary authors who have been included in Project Gutenberg. I am certain that nothing unworthy gets through the doors; but if you want to propose safeguards that are even better please talk with Dr. Newby and Michael Hart. I think that issue should be discussed, and if my works are unworthy they should be removed.

I'm going to look over these 3 books, could you advise a reading order?
