The subject line says it all. C'mon, we love you in Canada. Let us read you in all formats!

Thanks

Did not know that! Orbit USA controls the electronic rights. I'll see what's up.

Waited and waited for the November 22 launch, and only then found out that I couldn't get it. I'm bummed.

Still researching this problem. Could be a division of rights.

:( So that's why I can't buy it for my Kindle.

Quite disappointing as there have been a number of great reviews and was looking forward to reading it.

Still no answers. Might lie in the division of rights with Canadian distributors. But let me know if that block continues much longer.

I've enjoyed your work for almost 30 years. Keep it coming!

(Too bad 'free trade' doesn't really exist - a difference in Kindle availability is ridiculous .. I was looking forward to reading it over the break)

One can always buy the physical book, of course. Without being called a retro geek... Hope the situation in Canada changes soon!

Piling on here - I'm in the UK, got a Kindle to Christmas

I was looking forward to getting Hull Zero Three right onto my Kindle as one of my first purchases (and Mariposa too) but we're in the same situation.

City at the End of Time and earlier books seem to be available (although there are a few other strange gaps - e.g. Darwin's Radio but not Darwin's Children).

Hope your publisher can figure out the rights issues soon...

HULL ZERO THREE is not yet published in book form in the UK, so the electronic version wouldn't be available until then, or shortly thereafter. While you're waiting, you might want to pick up the newly e-released FORGE OF GOD or, of course, CITY or MARIPOSA.

Thanks Greg!

Actually, the good news is that Hull Zero Three was released in hardback on Nov 22nd... I'm trying to cut down on hardbacks though, because the weight/size issue when I'm travelling, but I may not be able to be patient enough to wait for the paperback :)

Mariposa isn't on the Kindle store yet either in the UK :-(

You can buy MARIPOSA for Kindle (internationally) and many of my back titles through e-reads at www.ereads.com. And be assured: the hardback of HULL ZERO THREE is both attractive, and easily portable!
