I'm happy to report that after some concentrated effort, the task has been completed with a week to go. From 8th April 2022 The 'Complete Crockett' is almost complete. All the works published in his lifetime (well, not 'all' but those in novel/short story collection form) are now available for FREE download. This has been a substantial undertaking.
What's not here? There are literally hundreds of Crockett stories/serials from magazines. Many are represented in these publications but it's an impossible task to declare Crockett's oeuvre 'complete' (or impossible for me at least!) . The only omission at present I would note is Seven Wise Men, which was published in its own right in a small volume in 1909, but since the stories also form part of the collection The Bloom of the Heather, I would direct intrerested readers to that book for the Seven Wise Men.
There are vaguaries of UK/US titles, most notably The Moss Troopers which is titled Patsy in American edition, and The White Pope is called Light out of the East in the US edition.
To fully complete the task I set myself, five posthumous works still need to be digitised. This will be done before Crockett's birthday in 2022 (hopefully sooner!) at which point it will be a 'wrap' and I will think about what project to delve into next. The archive/letters are beckoning again...
In the meantime, I hope that at least some readers and potential readers will get some enjoyment out of the free downloads. It was more than 20 years of Crockett's life to write them and has been more than 10 years of my life to get them to this stage - so as you enjoy your 'free', please think of the costs that have been incurred by us! (and be kind about any typos or minor errors you discover. We are talking over 4 million words - errors there will be!)
