Hi, uthpastormatt.
Sorry you've been having trouble with your downloads, and thanks for letting us know - archive.org which hosts our files can be a bit temperamental and it's just possible you've been unlucky. I'll try downloading these and see if I have the same problem. I'm sure you're aware you can download the individual files as a work-around if the zips are playing up, although obviously it's not quite so convenient.

I believe I cataloged ALL of those books and check each and every zip file and they were all fine! I think it must be an archive problem. An interrupted download will cause that to happen. All I can say is try again at a later date.

Yep, my zipped downloads of Life on the Mississippi and The Man that Corrupted Hadleyburg (randomly picked) are faultless. Looks like you suffered from an archive blip, I'm afraid; nothing we can do about them. :(
Download managers like 'Downthemall' for the Firefox browser make it possible to download the individual chapter files reasonably easily, if you keep having problems with the large zip files.
