Is it possible to post these?  They are brand new.  I don't know why they have no ISBN.  It is put out by a private religious pastor.

Yes, when you go to post a book there is an option to post a book without an isbn.   This is usually done for older books that predate the ISBN and SBN systems.   Even today, there is no requirement for a publisher to get and use an ISBN number for a book; most do in order to help the book get cataloged and distributed as widely as possible.

Okay, thanks for the information.  I'm too tired to do much tonight so I'll investigate the situation tomorrow.

Wow, Bret, you are a very interesting person.  I'll have to check out your huge list later - I love science fiction.
