Zadig, or, The Book of Fate

Almost two years ago, I complained that there was no English e-text of Zadig, Voltaire's oriental Enlightenment detective fable. At the time, I thought this was my usual pointless whining into the void; but no. Through the good efforts of Barbara Tozier, and the rest of the people associated with Project Gutenberg and Distributed Proofreading, one of the most charming of M. Voltaire's literary productions is now available for free to the English-reading web, in both plain-text and handsome HTML versions.

You realize this means I'm only going to whine here more.
