Kindle-ing interest

(Last updated: May 12, 2024)

Readers frequently email to ask about the availability of my writing in ebook formats. The short answer is: most books, sooner or later, come out as ebooks. The timing varies from title to title, ereader by ereader, and country to country.

Prices change, too. For example, ebook prices for a title tend to drop after release of the corresponding mass-market paperback edition.

To Google, Yahoo, and Bing (and, ultimately to you, the blog reader, who has come upon this post): here's a snapshot of my novels and collections available in the most popular ebook format: Kindle.

What about those of you who don't use Kindles or compatible readers (such as iPhones)? There's a good chance that the print publisher who reformatted a hardcopy book for the Kindle has (or will) do the same for other popular electronic formats. Check your favorite ebook outlet. And if something you'd like to read isn't available in the format of your choice? It never hurts to express interest to the print publisher in a polite email.

The following lists summarize availability of Edward M. Lerner titles in the US Kindle store. Ebook availability in other countries may vary.

I just finished the Hard Cover of Small Miracles and loved it. I decided to try a couple of your eBooks and so I bought the 2 new ones. Thanks for the fine writing.

Currently reading Destroyer of Worlds with Betrayer of Worlds next in the stack.

I have enjoyed the "behind the scenes" POV of the series very much so far. It must have been fun dissecting the original works.

A recent convert to E-Books, I will progress to the kindle versions of your books in due time.

Hi TS,

You're quite right -- it was fun addressing the open issues and loose ends of the earlier Known Space stories.

Happy reading :-)
