...a subject of some radioactivity to it...but I have only used it on EPUB ebooks I purchased...and while I have lent an
ebook with such content on it briefly, I've always gotten in back, just like a hard copy book.

The referenced software works with Calibre as a plugin. Getting it to work can be a struggle comprehending what you're
supposed to do, but once it's there and properly installed, it Just Works in my experience.
My partner is an author and I help her with certain aspects of self-publishing, mostly the creation of EPUBs from her
source Word documents (which Calibre does handily). She is an unchurched Christian who grew up in a deeply Southern
Baptist family, father a preacher and Old Testament theologian. As an a subtle guerilla exegesis of the strait-jacket
Christianity of her youth (worse now), she has written a series on Jesus and his followers and their thoughts and those
of their cats (who are a sort of Greek chorus commentary)
