How to open a zipped file in Windows without an unzipping program.
When you double-click on the zipped file, the unzipping program may automatically extract all of the files into a folder. If the unzipping program instead shows you a long list of files (00.htm, 01.htm, etc.), then select all of the files that the unzipping program shows. (You can select all the files by typing Control-A in Windows.) Extract the files into an empty folder.
Once the files are in the folder that either you or the unzipping program have chosen, the files will all appear in their proper order in that folder (the main folder). Go into the main folder and double-click on the contents.htm file in order to see the table of contents for Love in Dark Settings Omnibus.
My recommendations of online writings at other sites date from 1999 to the present; I can't guarantee that all of the older links still work. However, I give hints in the introduction to the e-book on how readers can track down sites that have moved.
