All the DOCS are now in generic Doc format, so no matter what your
PDA reader program, you should be able to read them. I am starting to add
iSilo versions, particularly for those authors who use
lots of formatting (italics, bold, etc), as iSilo seems to
be one of the most popular document readers for stuffing webpages and
other formatted documents into your Palm. The "Author" column
includes a link to the author's home page, if one is available. (For
my fics, just click on the "Writings" link at the top of the
Please note: All fics are the property of
their respective authors; do not re-distribute them (submit to a public

them, don't ask me for permission unless it's one of my stories; ask the

Note that all of the following are available from
PalmGear H.Q., along with lots of other things for
PDAs. Also note that all the shareware listed also has either a
freeware "Lite" version available, or you can download a limited-use
"Demo" version--sometimes both.
- iSilo, shareware Palm document reader.
Handles iSilo & Doc formats. I use this.
- TealDoc, by TealPoint
Software. Shareware Palm document reader; handles Doc & TealDoc
formats. I use this.
- Qvadis Express Reader - a shareware Palm document
reader, desktop PC document reader, and editor. Includes
Express Reader DX, a Windows desktop conversion tool,
editor & reader, and Express Reader GT, the Palm
- pEdit/pEdit32 - a shareware Palm document editor and
improved Memo app. I have tested this; too complex for my tastes
- MobiPocket Reader and MobiPocket Publisher
- a freeware Palm document reader that also supports its own enhanced
format, and a conversion tool for producing MobiPocket Reader format
docs. I use the Reader for Baen Free Library
- Wordsmith - a shareware Palm word processor and
document reader.Hyper-Angel did a lot of her writing with this
- RichReader - A shareware Palm document reader for
rich-formatted text, in addition to plain vanilla Doc files. Includes
DOS conversion utilities.
- DocReader for Java - a freeware Java-based
desktop document reader; works on any system with a Java
run-time. It's the only thing I've found for Linux, and it is slightly
buggy--which is slowly driving me to write my own desktop document
reader! Yes, I use it.
- Doc Toolkit (dtk)
- A very nice Linux utility that takes text or HTML or tagged
text input and spits out public Doc or TealDoc formatted docs.
Uses Pyrite library and, like most Linux Palm utils, depends on
the pilot-link library. See the
CQ Codeworks website for details. If you are
a Windows user, there are several text-to-doc conversion utilities
for Windows. Check out PalmGear HQ
for a variety of them.
- iSilo386 is the Linux command-line conversion utility for
iSilo, a nice shareware document reader that preserves HTML formatting.
Conversion utilities for other OS are available on their website,
including BSD, Windows, and DOS.
- A Perl script that cleans up the dog-barf MS Word vomits up
when exporting your document to HTML or text format. (Don't use MS Word as
your HTML editor if you value the integrity of your web page. Please!)
- HTML Tidy
- A handy little program written in C and compilable on the platform
of your choice (there are Windows and Linux binaries available) that
can do all kinds of useful clean-up and fix-ups on your HTML code. Read
the web page for instructions, though; it has a LOT of command-line options.
Several web page editors have integrated support for using Tidy: Notetab and
Notetab Lite under Windows, Bluefish under Linux, and others--see the web page.
I use this ALL the time.
