Yeah, thanks. If there's any more Traven floating about, it'd be good to have it uploaded. Had no joy looking for the Death Ship or the Jungle series.

Unfortunately, I don't think there is much Traven just floating about (not even The Death Ship, groan! 8-) ). If we want to see it online, we've got to do the scanning ourselves, comrades!

For those of you who use the international language, here's an Esperanto version of The Death Ship: Mortula Ŝipo.
