  • Everywhere it is the police who do the whipping and the one in rags who gets whipped. And then the people who sit smugly at their well-laden tables are surprised when someone rocks the table, overturns it, and shatters everything to fragments.

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! cool ). If we want to see it online, we've got to do the scanning ourselves, comrades!
