The formatting is decent -- there's an active table of contents, which is always a plus in a Kindle cheapie! I've found a few typo/scan issues, but not a great many, and certainly not enough to ruin the reading experience. And yes, I believe all the contents are public domain, but there's quite a bit here I've never seen offered on Kindle at any price and in my opinion it's well worth paying here.
If you want a ready-made pulp/horror/adventure library, placing gems like "The Most Dangerous Game" cheek by jowl with stories about transplanting a human brain into the body of an extinct reptile, you NEED this book. If I ever make it through the entire collection (I'm only up to the authors who start with "D," so it will be a while), I will certainly spring for the second and third volumes.
Warning. A few of the stories contain some pretty heavy racism. They were written at a time when this was acceptable in entertainment. Please don't let this put you off the whole collection.
The thing that has bothered me most is, although the stories are all listed in the interactive table of contents, there is no indication of length. So I have found myself ready to read a short story before bed, only to discover that I've begun a novella!
Some of the stories are real gems that I have read in other anthologies and remembered the story, but not the title. Rediscovering those are a real joy! Then there are the stories that are OK. They aren't that memorable and a few I've been disappointed with.
However, that was the way the early pulps were. So this is a true blast from the past!
I bought it for Kindle to add to my evening reading collection.
I have not finished it, but I'm enjoying it.
If you are interested in classic oddness and dark creativity altogether different from the committee-generated sputum pumped into your house through the collective mass-entertainment machine, this is a good place to get started.
