I can't find Bryce Courtnay e-books (epub)

Has anybody come across any Bryce Courtnay e-books in epub format? I can't seem to find any, I'm starting to think that he may be one of those writers who's publisher shuns e-books ...
I'm also after Sapphire's book "Push" also in epub.

Cheers,

m-reader

Thanks mate, I'll have a look at it tonight - dreaded WebSense is blocking it from work!

I would love to have The Power of One as an ebook. That is one of my Top 10 favorite books of all time. My copy is falling to pieces.

Thanks for the link to Waterstones. I bought Whitethorn which I haven't read yet.

Same here - my wife is very excited! If I could only find the Push by Sapphire (made into a movie recently - "Precious") in e-book, that would really make her day!

Nice one, thanks for that! Prices are also pretty good.

BTW, I'm from Melbourne - only slightly geographically challenged at the moment

PS - They only have Jessica by BC

Book. They only have Jessica. And it's available almost everywhere in the world *except* the US! Jessica is also available at Waterstones, along with Whitethorn and Tommo & Hawk. I was able to buy Whitethorn using a US address.

The Australian/NZ website has the worst search engine ever. Putting Bryce Courtenay in yielded about 30 results, most of which I couldn't figure out why they popped up!

I think I'll buy Jessica from the Oz website and the rest from Waterstones.
I checked the Geo restrictions list and I was pleasantly surprised that my current location is supported (Saudi Arabia!).
WTR search engine, I think they do an "OR" search (e.g. Bryce OR Courtenay). The best way to beat this is to click on the first book that matches and then click on the author's name to see what else they have. Fictionwise is the same ...

No, Fictionwise uses AND not OR. Much more sensible system. Who is going to search for two different authors at the same time? For an example you can type "Ralph Peters" in the author box. You only get one book, not the zillions of books with an author with last name Peters.

Of course - you are right. I think I was doing a search by keyword, not by author - which works as you describe it.
