Quote: The Chessmen of Mars introduces the Kaldanes of Bantoom. Their form is almost all head but for six vestigial legs and a pair of Chelae.

Analysis: The word "vestigial" is wrong, as the creature's legs are functional in spiderlike fashion.WHPratt (talk) 17:12, 10 March 2009 (UTC) Also, "chelae" shouldn't be capped -- it's not a proper name.WHPratt (talk) 14:02, 17 March 2009 (UTC)

Link to erb2ebook.blogspot.com[edit]

I added an external link to my blog page that is only intended to make available a better formated version of the book. Since no other reasonably formated version of the book is linked here and therefore easily available to the reader of the article, I believe that this link actually is complying with the scope of wikipedia - making information available to everyone. Please let me know your opinion and accept my apologies if I am wrong and let me know what better way is to make the epub version of the book easily available to everyone. I am new to wikipedia.
