Free E-Book: Nephi Anderson's "Almina" (1891)

I've made my first Mormon literature e-book: Nephi Anderson's 1891 novella "Almina."

"Almina" was Anderson's first published attempt at long fiction. It was serialized in The Contributor from November 1891 to May 1892 while Anderson was serving his mission in Norway. Although he rarely mentioned his fiction in his mission journal, he had this to say on December 23, 1891:

"Yesterday received news and papers from home. "Contributor" No. 1 of Vol. 13 Containing 'Almina'."

The title was underlined with a squiggly line. I guess that means he was excited.

The Kindle (.mobi) file for "Almina" can be downloaded here. The Nook (.ePub) file is here.

Let me know if you have any trouble.

    I have a Nook so I can't read mobis. I hope other people download it though . . . .

    1. I just uploaded a version for the Nook. That takes an .ePub file, right?

  2. Thanks for posting this, Scott; I'm sure it involved lots of tedious work. I've been collecting all of Nephi Anderson's works since I first heard you write about them--I'll get to them some day.

    1. No problem. I hope you enjoy "Almina" and the rest...
