Are there ways to easily convert chapter-split books from popular fan-fiction sites into single e-book?

Of course, one can either manually download every one of 50+ chapters of a large fic by hand and copy/paste them together, or write some Perl code to scrape the contents of the site.

But I'm hoping someone already came up with pre-packaged solution for at least the most popular sites like FanFiction (if the general question is too broad, we can restrict it to the latter)

You can use the GrabMyBooks Firefox extension. It can grab single web-pages and convert them to epub, or adding multiple pages as distinct chapters.

There is also a Calibre plugin called FanFictionDownloader, but I've never used it.

  • The former seems pretty manual (it doesn't advance to the next chapter by itself, right?). I'll try the plugin, thanks! – DVK Dec 21 '13 at 17:29
  • Yes, you must manually add every single webpage. It's not specifically aimed at fanfiction sites but to general pages. – Sekhemty Dec 21 '13 at 17:31
