blogs to books

During the time which the Black Range Rag has been published there have been several posts which are part of a series.  A few of these “serial-posts” benefit from being placed together in one document.  That fact is the basis for “Blogs to Books”.  The serial-posts treated in this manner are identified to the right.  The copyrights of these documents remain with the original authors.

We hope to grow this selection over time but are entranced with the experience of reading these posts in the same place and at the same time.
