An Anarchist FAQ on your e-reader

The Cover of AFAQI’ve been in contact with the collective behind the Anarchist FAQ in order to transform this excellent piece of work into a format that people can enjoy in portable devices as well as their monitor or as a book. Since I’m using a bebook, having it in such a format is much more comfortable than what I’ve used now (basically downloading the independent pdf files) and converting it so will hopefully allow more people to read it.

So now, with the revision of the AFAQ for Volume 2, I’ve been sent a copy with the new modifications in a single file that I could work on easier. And after a day of hacking at the template, I’ve finally completed the work and version 13.1 is for the first time available in ebook formats. I’m going to send the files to Iain as well of course but until they are updloaded to their site, feel free to download the version you prefer from the below links.

  • epub – With full Index
  • pdf – In 9x12cm page size (exact for bebook) and including full index and Table of Contents
  • rtf – For those of you that prefer it in something simple
  • mobi – Conversion was not great but index is available. If you can make something better, let me know and I’ll host it instead.

Of course there are more formats that are available for e-readers such as prc, fb2 etc but I don’t have a converter for everything so these will have to wait until someone with the correct tool takes over. I’m using the amazing ebook manager Calibre myself which has a lot of conversion options so I can only create what it allows to. For the rest, I’m afraid you’ll have to do it yourself. However feel free to use my master copy which is in odt format. This should hopefully allow you to easily turn it to whatever you prefer.

Enjoy!

  1. Wow, that's a great idea. Thanks for all the work you put into making the Anarchist FAQ even more useful. And hey, now I have one more reason to pick up an e-reader. 😉

  2. Hi it doesn't seem to be complete with the pdf one. Well actually for the 13 version I was the first one to make it into pdf. my files where not as neat as yours because they are just the pdfs merged together via pdftk commandline I used wget to download it I then moved the pdfs from the directory and puts it in its own and combined them to gather and I have given them out to people to use on gigapedia.com. If you need someone to download a single section of a site I am here for you I am an advanced user of wget :D.

    1. It's not the complete AFAQ. It's volume 1, as is printed on the first book volume. I will check your links however, thanks

  3. hi, your epub is a great edition of the FAQ. any word on when vol. 2 will become available? thanks

  4. This is just what I was looking for, thanks for taking the time to do this! An eye can only take so much reading on a computer screen.

  5. Anyone know when vol 2 is coming out in print? It would be great not to have to go on the interent for it.

  6. This is the 13.1 version, 14 is out… so what's the big change between both version anyway? I'm reading your epub haha.
