But if you do not strip DRM, you cannot read this on a non-Kindle Reader. You do not have full control of where you can read this.

They don't even list Robert Aspirin as an author on their web site. As far as I can tell, their web store only includes physical copies. I looked at one of the books on their store and was able to find it available for the Nook. The Myth Adventures series did get the announcement on their facebook page. They're an independent publisher, not a large press. I don't know when they started publishing but it sure seems like they're new and figuring stuff out. There may be legal reasons the Aspirin stuff isn't on the non-amazon sites. If it's an issue for you, with a book you want but don't want to buy from Amazon, send them an email and ask - you just might get an answer.

I'm just happy that there appears to be a plan to get a favorite series into my hands, and I'm happy to buy them from Amazon to read them on my Kindle.

the details of the book indicate "Simultaneous device usage ‏ : ‎ Unlimited"....doesn't that mean that the book is not DRMed?

Yes and no. Most people will use the Kindle app or download to a Kindle and get this as KFX which does have DRM. They won't know how to download it in kF8 so it can be converted to ePub.

Why don't you use the contact us button on their website to ask them about epub and it not being on the website. No you come here and .

But has anyone ever seen a non-KFX "Simultaneous device usage ‏ : ‎ Unlimited" book that has DRM?
