These are collections of science fiction and fantasy literature spanning from 2100 bc to the 2000s that are curated in calibre format.

Check >>>/lit/sffg or some book recommendation site like goodreads for suggestions on what to read before asking ITT.

[Thanks to the creator of the previous two threads from whom I copied and pasted all this, and of course to Book Curator, the original creator of this whole collection!]

thx to the thread NO┬░ 3 creator from whom i copied the op and first posts

>https://archived.moe/t/thread/1023504/#q1023542

A long, long time ago, maybe 15 years, when one click hosters where still the undisputed kings of file sharing and rapidshare.com ruled supreme, a user who called herself Gillian uploaded a large, 5GB collection of scifi and fantasy books on the long defunct rapidshare.org forums.

Rapidshare.com kept taking the files down almost as soon as they were put up and I may be one of only a handful of people on the net who managed to snag the whole collection.

Stupidly I physically removed files from the alphabetically sorted folders and stuffed them into other folders of my collection I had at the time. Only recently was I able to restore the original Gillian Archives collection by means of the very thorough index that was included.

I am am making the Gillian Archives available for the first time here.

You can download the index here:

https:// rapidgator net/file/5186028b28652a1c5bebac1c412b3a0c/Index_Gillian_archive.txt.html

and the torrent file itself here:

https:// rapidgator net/file/c79e2a1fea286fe08006b995f22f2ae5/Gillian_Archives.torrent.html

A word of warning: all files are .txt only, and a good portion of them, maybe 5%, are messed up (very poor OCR conversion with only wingdings/gibberish, or parts missing, or chapter headings or page numbers not edited out). The Archives do include some stuff that you wont find anywhere else on the web though.

LOL I was the creator of thread number 3 and I was just about to make a new version, I literally have the intro pasted to my clipboard right now.

Here is a link to a zip file on rapidgator that contains the original torrent files. People seem to have better luck downloading the torrents with those than with the magnet links.

Here is a 28-gigabyte collection of German literature, contains more than 25 thousands of books. Mostly sci-fi and fantasy, but lots of non-fiction and other genres as well. Enjoy.

The rapidgator links to the Gillian Archives index and the Gillian Archives torrent file from post >>1171344 are no longer valid because RG has deleted the files.

I have uploaded them again though. Remove the blank spaces, add a dot for the correct link:

Index:

Is there a more bite sized version? I don't want all the sci-fi, I just want a few hundred of the best, most popular books. A good mixture of classics like Foundation, Dune, Hyperion and modern ones like The Three Body Problem, Artimis, Children of time

it's back poggers

Anyone actually seeding this?
>>
>>1171825
I for one am seeding it, as I have been doing since the first thread. People are leeching too, my upload bandwith (1.2Mbps) is maxed out and has been since yesterday. Have you tried leeching with the torrent files instead of the magnet links? In any case, no worries, I will be seeding this indefinitely.

Thats the idea of magnet links, you dont need to download an extra file from some place on the internet for the torrent to work.
