I have just realised that the final two books in the Masters of Rome series (October Horse and Antony Cleopatra) do in fact have kindle versions. I mistakingly assumed that if the first five weren't in ebook format then the final two wouldn't be either... But there you go.

The best way to tell the publishers how wrong they are with a lot of series eBooks is to NOT purchase any eBooks of a series unless the entire series exist as eBooks. And go to the publisher website and fine out how to contact them to tell them just why you won't buy the eBooks from that series.

Bizarrely only the *3rd* book of the Incarnations of Immortality series by Anthony is availabel on Kindle, but none of the others are! I've alerted Piers about the situation and he's looking into it.

Aye, thank you! I actually bought them there after I found out they were hehe.. Kindle is not my first choice as a reader, but I sure do want the people whose choice it is to have a chance to read these great books. I'm just trying to do a public service and at the same time, in case I wind up with a Kindle in the future - I'd like the books I love most available hehe.. I have friends that love their Kindle. I'm just running my fav books against what's available in Kindle and kinda surprised how many aren't. I've got a few left to check, mostly non-fiction. I was extremely happy and surprised to find they had Kindle'rized Harpo Speaks by Harpo Marx. Love that book.

and another

Kon-Tiki: Across the Pacific in a Raft, by Thor Heyerdahl
