Hi Geoffc,
Thanks for the quick reply,
I like authors:- Robin Hobb Trudy Canavan, Kelly Armstrong, Raymone E. Feist, John Flanagan, Karen Miller, Fiona McIntosh, Robert Jordan, Terry Goodkind, I suppose you could call them magical Fantasy, sorry very new to this but couldn't find your link.

Hi, most of those are unlikely to be found in the Mobileread Library, but you may find some surprises ....

If you find Terry Goodkind, please let us know - we've been looking ....

Otherwise it seems you need to look at search engines such as ... http://ebooks.addall.com/, or http://inkmesh.com/ ....

Thanks for that, I have the first seven of Terry Goodkinds, Sword of Truth series, if that is any good to you? I will go onto that site now and have a look.

Baen Free Library is a great place to start: http://www.webscription.net/c-1-free-library.aspx

And the Baen CD has tons of books (scifi and fantasy): http://baencd.thefifthimperium.com/

For quality fantasy and SF start with webscription.net, the BAEN storefront. It not only carries BAEN ebooks but other imprints like Nightshade (which is fantasy-heavy), DelRey, etc. The prices are good and they are *DRM-free*.

Also, check for the Authors' home pages; many of them offer links to the ebookstores or even sell them directly.

One of the more prominent of the latter is the Closed Circle website:
http://www.closed-circle.net/WhereItsAt/
Basically a group of excellent *established* fantasy/SF writers who feel neither the publishers nor the ebookstores are doing enough to help them reach their readers and set up shop on their own.
They do top-quality fantasy and at least you'll know the money is going where it belongs: to the writers.

Many of the listed authors are (of course) available at the big commercial ebookstores. Sony, Borders, Fictionwise, Booksonboard are all places you might find them. If you have familiarity with DRM-removal, Amazon *definitely* has most of them at competitive prices.

I'd start with the closed circle and Webscription in that order; they're the good guys. Great books at good prices and they don't treat you like thieves.
