Star Trek Update: http://www.mininova.org/tor/1133301
Possible future updates: http://www.mininova.org/search/?search=13130
* For some reason STUV appears to have been taken down from Mininova you can find it on h33t (link above) of course its also been metaaggregated by hordes of sites that scrape from mininova directly so googling 13130 will find dozens of other locations.
* Robin Hobb - Soldier Son 3 & HarryPotter 7 are in the 13130 torrents despite my comments that they weren't in 8188.
This set of torrents is originally from Demonoid before Canada killed it (might be resurrected by PirateBay soon) and someone has been kind enough to reseed em, originally it was called 8818 which was the number of books it contained however there where subsequent addons (almost 50 of them) that added another 3000 or so books and some other source bringing it up to 13130 books in total.
They contain heaps of works of Fiction, most of them are in PDF format although they are mostly fairly basic text so converting them to other formats shouldn't be too hard (although all the tools I know about are Linux, so windows users might be stuck somewhat).
There are 1 or 2 corrupt files here and there, also the Star Trek and Babylon 5 sections are somewhat incomplete (however there are ebook torrents around for those individual series if you are after them and the included trek is enough to keep you going along time) the Dr Who seems to be fairly close to complete and I doubt theres a much better source around. Some other series are missing some books and more recent releases are absent.
Overall its a very good collection and a great way to start your own personal ebook library, has just about all the fiction most people would want, over 6GB of books. Particularly orientated to someone of the geek persuasion.
Some personal picks included in the complete set (in random order with notes, notes are from my demonoid collection that might differ from this torrent if a lot of stuff was added:
* Philip K. Dick - Famous scifi author (Blade Runner was based on Do androids dream of Electric sheep)
* K. W. Jeter - Blade runner books 2,3,4 (book4 is missing and very rare, 2 and 3 are mislabeled should be Blade Runner 2 - The Edge of Human, Blade Runner 3 - Replicant Night), BR1 is the Philip K Dick book about (although it differs from the movie somewhat)
* William Gibson - Necromancer trilogy, The Difference Engine (famous cyberpunk)
* Bruce Sterling - famous cyberpunk (coauthored the difference engine above)
