Nonsense Novels

Nonsense Novels - Stephen Leacock Read 229 pp. 1911 edition via google books online (link below). A very fun, light pastiche of assorted popular genres and their characteristic cliches from 100-120 years ago. Detective, gothic, romantic, science fiction, the sea story and more all take a hit.

why spend good money on those crappy reprints of free, public domain works?
