More of them wild ebooks

Richard Herley has made some of his works available online. I can only vouch for The Penal Colony. It suffers from a mild case of Twenty Minutes Into The Future and being British, but it’s a good read.

Heh, penal.

All the processes of production in the Village were interdependent and demanded a high degree of co-operation. At busy times the men growing fruit were excused other duties, and extra labour was drafted in to pick the crops. Every member of the Community had his own area of responsibility, yet the work was so well scheduled by Franks and Appleton that nothing ever seemed to be left undone. It was this aspect of life in the Village that Routledge found the most remarkable. He would not have believed it possible, least of all from a disparate bunch of convicts whose chief common trait had been an inability to function in mainland society.
