Mary Renault ebooks.

Yay, I'm feeling better :D

Just a quick post to share a couple of links. I uploaded these for a community, and thought maybe the flist would be interested too.

So, let's start with some information about the author (assuming that you don't know her, which if you're into slash is practically a capital offence) -> Mary Renault Her best known work is probably the Alexander trilogy.

And now...
The Charioteer
The Last of the Wine
The Praise Singer
The Mask of Apollo

All in .rtf files (you can read them with Word)

PS I almost forgot, here's a link (sorry, no download for this one) to Plato's Phaedrus, which goes hand in hand with the Charioteer.
