"New" Ellery Queen ebooks

Mysterious Press has a bunch of early and middle era Ellery Queen ebooks coming out tomorrow. Looks like right now Kobo has the best prices.

Titles:

The Adventures of Ellery Queen
And on the Eighth Day
The Greek Coffin Mystery
The French Powder Mystery
The Siamese Twin Mystery
The Spanish Cape Mystery
The Dutch Shoe Mystery
The Egyptian Cross Mystery
Ten Days' Wonder
The American Gun Mystery
Cat of Many Tails
The Chinese Orange Mystery

The Roman Hat Mystery and Calamity Town had been released previously. Along with the three titles from Langtail Press, that makes 17 EQ's now available in e-format.

Now, if I could just get some more Ngaio Marsh's, I'd be ecstatic.

Nice. I've read:
The Greek Coffin Mystery
The French Powder Mystery
The Egyptian Cross Mystery
The Chinese Orange Mystery
The Roman Hat Mystery
In hardcover. The old orange colored hardback versions that is. I found them on sale at a garage sale when I was a good deal younger. I've always liked books and getting some mysteries made my day that day.

Thanks for the heads up. I had wanted to read one last year, but the availability from my library or as an e-book was very limited.

They're rather expensive: £7.41 at Amazon; that's about $12.

EDIT: Considerably cheaper at BoB (£4.98), and eligible for discount, too.

I got my wish - the first 16 Ngaio Marsh mysteries featuring Inspector Alleyn are now available!

Looks like BooksonBoard has the best price at the moment at $7.49 each, with $1.50 in rewards.

Great new about the Ellery Queen books. I'll add them to my ever increasing wish list. I read most of the later books many years ago, but could never get my hands on the early ones.

All the Alleyn novels plus Ngaio Marsh's autobiography are available in the UK. Hope this bodes well for the remaining novels being published in the US.

Different UK and US publishers. That's why they were available in the UK, but not the US.

Another heads up - the early Martha Grimes "Richard Jury" books are being released as ebooks this month - pricey - $10 or more for the backlist titles.

Apparently Grimes changed publishers - which had delayed the ebook release of the backlist.
