The full text of my first book, *Cassiodorus* (Berkeley: U.C. Press,
1979), now out of print and the rights reverted to me, is now available
in hypertext form (footnotes as links) at:


I would suggest that there must be many other worthy books whose economic
life has expired in the eyes of their publishers but which can still be
useful and instructive, especially if made available widely and freely on
the net. If the original was composed on computer, preparing for HTML is
really quite simple; in this case, it took a bit more work to scan and
proofread the print book. (NOTE: I should emphasize that I can do this
because I have a legal right to do so under the terms of the contract with
my publisher. If you were to post on the net text whose rights you had
signed over to a publisher, the results could be quite unpleasant.)
