I think it's "print on demand" so there's as many copies available as there are requests for the book!

Except that after six weeks of waiting for a delivery from Amazon, they sent me an e-mail saying it would be another 4-6 weeks. Sad

And I just got another one.

Any news on actual availability Steel? I feel I may get a better answer from you than Amazon customer services.

When I ordered mine it came via the Egosoft shop, no problems there (but it was some time ago). Thought about Amazon but they couldn't get me White Wolf by David Gemmel so I sort of hung off ordering anything that was by a less well known author.

Where to begin. I didn't think that these stories were that big. I've just been reading the things on the game disk, and i think its ingenious. Now i read there a BOOKS! I've owned the game for nearly a year, and i've just found out about the fanfiction stuff. How far behind am I??? I did stop playing for a long time (about 8 months).

I feel a great shame.

Amazon just cancelled my order, saying that they couldn't get hold of a copy. Where can we get it now?

Would you consider repackaging Dominion and the Rogue stories (and perhaps ask Merc about the Traders Tale ones) as MS Reader/Mobipocket files and selling them at ebook prices?

I don't have the space any more to buy too many hard copies of books - 95% of what I read now is in electronic format of one kind or another. It seems to me that if you repackaged the HTML/text in pdf to std ebook format you could make them extremely accessible to an increasingly large audience (and make some money).

The only problem I can see with this is that the current publishers would have to agree to the books being released this way and if you're holding out for a hard-copy release for books later in the series then it might not make sense to release them commercially.

Additionally it seems that the hard copies are increasingly difficult to find.

Just a thought as I was reading through the latest FL fix Smile Feel free to ignore...

Matt

EDIT: I think I may have missed the point about why you got the books published - rather for the joy of seeing the books in hardcopy than for monetary reasons. In addition, I just realised that my PDA can read acrobat files (although the print is quite small to fit the page in view sideways). The points made above still seemed at least partly relevant though so I thought I'd leave them in (Got to start thinking before typing).

Steve Miller's Rogues Testament found on steve's Space Ritual website here

and I can't find it but I was sure Dominion was also available in PDF somewhere, :-\ though I can't find it in my half hearted attempt just now, somone else may be able to point you in the right direction.

I guess the main problem is that the X-Universe is copyright and you can't really sell fan fiction. The e-book sites I've seen, like Fictionwise - won't touch this sort of thing.

It would be nice to make some money from all the work that went into the series but that's the way it goes. As Avis said - the stories are available in pdf free. It's a shame pdf's aren't that readable on portable devices - at least not on my Palm Pilot.
