An Impressive, Comprehensive Collection of Jack London's Works,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Delphi Complete Works of Jack London (Illustrated) (Kindle Edition)
Delphi Classics is correct: As of this writing, all four of the reviews linked to this ebook on Amazon.com are for the wrong product--not Delphi's wonderful Complete Works of Jack London. Though I don't know enough about Jack London's writings to say whether this is EVERYTHING the man ever wrote, I can vouch for the comprehensive nature of this nicely presented and formatted works collection. All 197 short stories are here and, as far as I know, all of the novels, plays, etc. It's a huge collection but well organized and easily navigated. I can't imagine finding a better Jack London collection for the Kindle anywhere. Delphi has similar collections for many other classic authors whose works are now in the public domain. They are a fairly new company, but it's clear to me they want to become the leading provider of public-domain classics for the Kindle (at least for readers who like these comprehensive complete-works collections). At $2.99 each, they're an incredible value.
I should also mention that Delphi has excellent customer service, and they take quality control seriously. For example, there are some minor formatting issues in the first novel of this collection (The Cruise of the Dazzler). Many words containing apostrophes contain an extra space. I contacted Delphi about this, and they sent me a corrected file directly by e-mail within two or three days. I was very impressed. I highly recommend this and other Delphi Classics works collections.

About 55 years ago I read a London story in which a Mounted Policeman and his prisoner camp on an island at night and discuss their plans for their futures before going to sleep - and that night the river ice breaks up and scrapes the island clean of all life including moss and trees and the two men. I cannot locate this story. Any ideas?? I looked through a 3-vol. COMPLETE STORIES OF JACK LONDON at a university library today, and all I could find was a story with a VERY similar ending, titled "At the Rainbow's End." The story I read long ago was in an old set published around 1910 or 1912. Any ideas??
