I had a look into e-booking the stories a while back but drifted off due to other committments. What I noticed is that the various e-book formats are not mutually compatible. That means if you create an e-book for a certain reader users of devices that cannot use that reader are hitting the dust.

If anybody knows of a format that is supported across the board then I am happy to look further into it.

My last idea has been CHM, which is compiled html and there are a number of readers around but I don't think readers for all devices/systems. :(

I've got the Rogue series, Traders Tale series (from your site kiwi) on my PC and on my Tungsten T palm Device.

Have Adobe Reader 7 on my PC and Adobe reader for palm os on my tungsten. Adobe reader 3.0 for palm/pocket pc's is available free from the adobe website. The pdf format is the only redaer which appears to be available for all of the various devices.
I can't get microsoft reader for my tungsten or any palm devices, you have to have a pocket pc to use it. D'oh!

True, and you can also get it for Symbian OS. But do the mobile versions allow you to set bookmarks to continue reading later on or do you have to memorise it?

I think Steve is still a tad miffed about his experiences with X3. He could always base it around X2 though! :)

Yea - I was pretty miffed with the unplayable release state and the 'anything that looks like a bug or a problem is a fault with your pc' attitude to tech support.

The Rogues series is pretty complete as a trilogy. I began a fourth but without a working ( and fun) X game to keep the imagination going I just couldn't keep the enthusiasm I'm afraid.

And the apparently lower tech levels of x3 are pretty hard to square with what went before. All in all I found x3 very disappointing. Too much gameplay and basic functionality as found in x2 as it became at the end, butchered on the eye-candy alter.

Combat was better, but that's about it.

Since I have been asked the update is that unfortunately with the sands of time, all the links for downloadable copies of this are now retired.

You can still buy the paperback version over at Amazon
