Stories & Novels
Fine typography, crisp black on white, and an underused typeface provide a welcome break for reading on the web.

The drop caps are nice, but would be nicer if they sat on the text baseline. Some could also use tighter spacing. Perhaps there’s only so much you can do to control these things without a lot of case-specific CSS massaging.
Ah! Perhaps it’s a browser issue. I’m using Chrome.
Fonts In Use — Thanks for the kind words. While all the novels and stories are available in .mobi and .epub formats, in addition to PDF, I have a soft spot for the HTML versions set in Chaparral. I actually prefer the text in HTML to the rather limited layout capabilities of today's e-book devices. Being New Year's Eve, I have to mention my story "Buster," a story set on December 31st at a New Year's Eve party. It's available in HTML format, set in Chaparral. Or enjoy it on your favorite e-book device. Again, thanks for the write-up, and Happy New Year!
