Index of free books, short stories and poetry (A - D)

Below you will find links to a variety of free ebooks, short stories and poetry. The various classic works we offer are presented free of charge as a public service from Internet Accuracy Project. These ebooks and stories contain the complete text, but no illustrations that may have appeared in the original publication.

This list is alphabetized by the author's name. If you'd prefer to see an alphabetized listing by the title of the various free ebooks, visit our page of free literature arranged alphabetically by title.

This is just a small sampling of the titles we'll be adding in the future!

You don't need a fancy iPad, Kindle, or any other expensive e-Reader to enjoy our digital books, short stories and poems. Nearly any electronic device you use to browse the Web can display our literary offerings. You may also choose to save them as a plain text document, so you can view them later. While you can use most smaller tablet computers, netbooks, smart-phones and other handheld devices, some of these classic works are quite lengthy, so you may find that traditional computers and laptops do a better job displaying them.

NOTE: We try to present these classic literary works as they originally appeared in print. As such, they sometimes contain adult themes, offensive language, and often utilize unconventional, older, obsolete or intentionally incorrect spelling and/or punctuation conventions.
