WOW! That was quick! Thanks:)

I doubt you will find Fowles and Wilder, let alone Mailer. I tried gutenberg and a few other sites.

Can`t find anything for the others, I`m afraid - they must still be in print and copyright..... I`ll keep looking. :D

Yep, I tried Gutenberg too, Alethea. They`ll be there somewhere.... just a question of where, as ever. ;-)

If you find them, I will get the most interesting chapters from *Satisfaction guaranteed* scanned for you.

How come noone want to buy it? Do you think it's a courier delivery that put them off?

Perhaps they know it already, Alethea ? ;-))))))

:D Well, rumour has it that Shakespeare wouldn`t have much use for "Satisfaction Guaranteed" anyway.......... try Christopher Marlowe, "Dr Faustus" sometime. :) http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/Texts/faustus.html - Marlowe wouldn`t have bought "Satifaction Guaranteed " either, but.... each to his own.... :D

I will better try Dangerous Liaisons by Choderlos de Laclos ( more elegant and sophisticated version of Philosophy in the boudoir) or A Glimpse of Stocking .

Yes, glimpse of stocking is a good idea.
