At this point no. LRF is a terminal format. lrf2html is broken and lrf2mobi does not exist.

The ABC Amber Sony Converter (http://www.processtext.com/abcsonylrf.html) can convert the file to RTF or HTML, which can then be converted to mobi.

It doesn't do a great job, but it might be good enough.

Good enough? Not even close to 1/2 way decent. It's downright awful. You lose all the graphics and all the formatting. Basically, what you are left with is a text file with links (if even they survive).

Yeah, the ABC Amber converter is pretty much the worst converter out there that I've encountered. The output is just plain dreadful.
