Still waiting for Brother Jonathan by Crawford Kilian, Fool's Run by Patricia Mckillip, the Time's Master and Chaos Gate series by Louise Cooper, Fuzzy Bones and Golden Dream (not by Piper but continuing the Little Fuzzy series), and the Elenium and Tamuli series by Eddings. Those are the ones I most want an ebook version of. Oh, and A Night in the Lonesome October and Changeling by Zelazny ( it kills me that he wrote 2/3 of a trilogy and left it at a cliffhanger)

There are also quite a few that I'm waiting for price drops, mostly because I already have the paper version or I read them but didn't like them enough to keep a copy but I might rebuy for the right price.
Yep, most of that is on my to buy list as well. Fortunately, I snarfed up the Elenium and Tamuli back when they were available as omnibus book back in 2016. I've been looking for the Louise Cooper books for a while. She died in 2009, but her husband seems to be still alive and her website is still up.

I hadn't heard of the The Changeover. Thanks for the pointer, I'll give it a whirl.

Patrica McKillip's ebooks have been slowly trickling out over time. The Riddle Master series came out back in 1999, with the Forgotten Beast of Eld finally coming out last year about this time.

I'm not all that hopeful about Fools Run. Warner books is gone and no one seems to have ever heard of Fools Run. I certainly have not seen any copies in bookstores forever. It's not in our library either. It may have been forgotten by everyone including the author. A pity. It's a great book.

SF Gateway have published the ebook version of Fool's Run outside US/Canada, so it hasn't been completely forgotten.

I got a used paperback of Fool's Run a couple of years ago for almost nothing, from a charity shop which had a weirdly good selection of obscure/old SF.

I haven't read it yet.

Do. It's my second favorite from Mckillip after the Riddle Master series. I'm guarding my only copy like gold because I wouldn't want to be without it and it's so hard to find.

It's really good. I really wish it was out in the US as an ebook! I have a paperback copy for now.

One of the gaps in Adam Roberts' backlist will be filled when The Snow (2004) is released as ebook in December.
