And for science, I've checked to see which of the work-specific-award–winners are available in electronic editions. I’ve re-arranged and cut a few of the items for my convenience.

None of Chabon's books seem to be available as e-books. Is he anti–e-book?

Short Story: "Tideline" by Elizabeth Bear (Asimov's June 2007)
Asimov’s has an electronic edition (through Fictionwise), but only has the most recent few issues available for sale – I’m not sure if this a policy they’ve settled on or because they’ve just started doing an electronic edition. They do however have all the Hugo-nominees (and Nebula winners) they ran available for free from their web site.

F&SF also has an electronic edition (again through Fictionwise), and appears to have every issue they’ve done electronically available for sale, running several years back.

Not available as an e-book. OUP seems to be starting to do the e-book thing, although so far I’ve only seen their books as PDFs and for the Kindle.

This has me wondering how SF-award e-book coverage over the past few years compares with that of general literary awards. I’d have thought it would be higher, but looking at this, perhaps not.
