Downloading Bright Spirit Descending
The list below offers a series of zipfiles, both plain and self-extracting, to download, complete with art. Each is about 1 meg, so you may want to download them one at a time, read them, and then come back for the next part rather than get them in one sitting. You'd be sitting a long time. Single downloads also minimize the disk space tied up, if that's a consideration for you...assuming you delete the parts you've read before going to the next batch.
When you've downloaded one of these files, save it somewhere you can find it again. If you've chosen the self-extracting zipfiles, RUN it (START menu in Windows). The .exe file will then unzip itself into its component files: bsd-front.doc, which consists of the cover and front matter; and the individual chapter files: bsd001.doc, bsd002.doc, etc., through bsd017.doc (the end).
If you've chosen the plain zipfiles, presumably you have an unzipper that you can use to peel the component files out of the zips.
I've saved it as an early version of MS Word (2x) so any current word processor should be able to pick it up, convert it, and present it onscreen without nonsense formatting garbage and annoying strange symbols getting in the way.
The self-extracting zips are in the IBM-blue column, below; the plain zips are in the cheery yellow column, to the right (I thought an Apple red background would make things a bit too hard to see).

You can print it out if you want, or read it off the screen in any size you feel comfortable with. Remember, you can change the VIEW without actually messing with the type size at all.
I hope you have nearly as much fun reading it as I did, writing it.
