I saw this, but as it wasn't new (first posted in 2022), didn't think of posting it here. Thanks!

Interesting that the Table of Contents links betray that this was compiled in calibre, e.g.:

https://www.rudyrucker.com/mirrorsha...alibre_link-24

So I take it I could simply curl this into an EPUB if I wanted to try reading it on an ereader?

You can do that regardless of how the page was created.
I'm partial to the WebToEpub Firefox and Chrome extension.

However, it might take some work to split the single page into several epub pages.

Sigil can manage this easily enough: set marks at each chapter break, then split at marks.

Thanks!
I mainly use WebToEpub to collect multi-page content, but for a single page it does seem more sensible to use a different tool.

But Rucker now updated the page to include proper ebook files

My paperback edition has lovely reflective silver mirrorshades on the cover. Shame you can't get that effect in the ebook...

I'm willing to bet a skilled Photoshop artist could get it much closer to the book, but all you have is me at the moment. At least I could manage to make it white again (and I found a larger source image):

A better approximation would be a 3D shader-powered reflection that changes based on the accelerometer of a phone. A web browser can access it and I think it should be supported by EPUB3, but definitely not on e-ink readers.

The Eon Series (Legacy, Eon, Eternity) by Greg Bear is $2.99 on Amazon:
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B071YMZ3RT

and Barnes and Noble:
https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/the...=9781504045452

Annoyingly, this sale price is not consistent. It's still list price at Kobo and Google Play.

It is available from ebooks.com for the slightly higher $3.99, but still considerably cheaper then list price:

I meant to post this earlier but forgot. I don't know when this offer expires, but I hope that anybody who's interested sees it in time.
