Fictionwise multiformat titles I have bought

I really want to have a resource thread for this. I want to buy fewer big-house 'secure' e-books and more indie/drm-free ones, but there is such a dearth of info out there about so many of them. I hope I can share the ones I have bought and liked, and others can do the same, and maybe we can all build up our Fictionwise wish lists with some non-evil indie choices. Please list novels only, if you can...

So, I'll start!

Bought, read and didn't like:
- Rara Ibis by T.K. Sheils (funky formatting, too hard to slog through)
- Department of Spirit Research by James Patrick Cobb (Worst! Book! Ever!)

Bought, read and liked:
- The Five Children Omnibus by Edith Nesbit (present from my sister)
- Third World Products, Book 1 by Ed Howdershelt
- Murder Canyon by Joan Blacher (actually my sister's, read during week-long visit)
- A Really Bad Hair Day by Rob Preece
- Butterfly House by T.K. Sheils
- Modem Operandi by T.K. Sheils (same as Murder Canyon, read at sister's during holiday there)

Bought, am enjoying so far but have not yet finished:
- The Case of the Virtuous Vampire by Monette Michaels
- Rx for Murder by Renee Horowitz (really good, may buy other 2 during sale)

Bought, but haven't read yet:
- A Strange Valley by Darrell Bain
- Just Add Trouble by Jinx Schwartz
- Tornado Bait by Amy Eastlake
- Blind Faith by Colin Harvey
- Quilt as Desired, a Harriet Truman Mystery by Arlene Sachitano
- Murder in a Nice Neighbourhood by Lora Roberts
- Tree Huggers by Judy Nichols
- Tea and Witchery by Marie Dees

I can't find this one. Do you have a link?

Based on Monette's web page, this may be between publishers. I hope it comes out as an ebook again.

Oh, I checked it and it says no longer for sale. I can still download it from my bookshelf though. Well, I guess I'd better make a backup copy!

I'll add to your thread, though I'm not sure any of these are "indie". I think they were all originally "big house" publications, but they are multi-format books, which is all that I've bought at Fictionwise.

Oracle Trilogy by Mike Resnick:
- Soothsayer, Oracle, Prophet
- SF/Fantasy series about a woman who sees & influences the future
- Bought the first book and then went back to buy the rest of the trilogy

Jean Lorrah Collected by Jean Lorrah
- A collection of short stories; I prefer novels, but love this author

Nessie and the Viking Gold by Lois June Wickstrom & Jean Lorrah
Nessie and the Celtic Maze by Lois June Wickstrom & Jean Lorrah
- Two children's books by a favorite author; haven't read yet

Door through Space by Marion Zimmer Bradley & Elisabeth Waters
- A re-read of a CLASSIC SF novel; enjoyed it very much

Ashes to Ashes by Lillian Stewart Carl
- A mystery novel; haven't read yet

----------------------------------------------
Update:

Ah heck! I wish I hadn't gone over to Fictionwise to list the books I'd already bought. I got all excited about the 40%-off sale and bought 3 more books:
* Magnificat by Chelsea Quinn Yarbro
* Magic's Song: Tales of the Harper Mage by Laura J. Underwood
* Beneath a Rising Moon by Keri Arthur
