Free fiction: From Bleiler Checklist, 1978 edition, part 1 (AFS-Balzac)

Everett F Bleiler's book "The Checklist of Science-Fiction and Supernatural Fiction" (1978) is apparently a very well known reference in some circles, listing the best of very old genre literature.

List itself doesn't appear to be online, but Mark Owings (alias Otzchiim) just posted to rasfw the first installment of those stories from this list which are available online at either Project Gutenberg or at Internet Archive. H(s)e doesn't include links, but a search for story at one of the two sites should hopefully yield the online copy.
