I was going to say they are in ebook form on Amazon ... and then I remembered I use Amazon.ca

Ebooks in this series came & went in the Kindle store - I'm assuming they were not legit copies from her estate.
Seeing as the current ones are from Macmillan/TOR and Open Road and the one pwalker mentions was also from Macmillan I'd assume they were legit. I'm assuming that Gates to Witch World disappeared because Macmillan's rights expired. We'll have to hope they work out a new deal or that Open Road picks up the rights to go with the other volumes they hold the rights to.

Ulysses (Xist Classics) by James Joyce

Joyce's novel follows the character of Leopold Bloom over the course of one day in 1904. It parallels the epic poem of Odysseus in a stream of consciousness style.

I've given up on the complete Vlad Taltos series by Steven Brust ever coming out as eBooks. The series was moved to a different publisher and some of the first books are not in eBook and most likely never will be.
Yea, that's one of the more frustrating ones that I'm looking for. What's worse is that Brust is still alive and writing, so given how popular the books were, I can only conclude that the early ones are tied up in a legal dispute.

You're mistaken in claiming that these are not available as ebooks. Most, if not all, are.
Somebody is not trying very hard. All are available (first two here on Mobileread) and one is free through Kindle Unlimited. Sheesh!!

I don't think I've given up on these yet, but all the other P.D. James books are in ebook format. I got all her others as they trickled across the pond a few years ago. The two I am waiting for are,

" The Maul and the Pear Tree " by PD James & Thomas A. Critchley
and " In Murderous Company " by PD James

I can buy both hardcover & paperback from Amazon, but no ebook yet. I do the "Tell the Publisher you'd like to see this as a Kindle book " request for both. I'd really like to add these to my ebook collection.

(I've got it, but have yet to cue it up.)
That's a condensed version. It was distilled from 6 volumes down to 800 pages total. I have the original 1926 version of The Prairie Years in two volumes - about 950 pages in total. I'm assuming that in the single volume version that has been boiled down to 250 pages or less. I'd love to have a digital version, but I don't want to lose the flavour of the original.

Sorry, my mistake, that looks look the unabridged version.

Still not what I'm looking for though. I want an unabridged ebook that I can search.

I have a pretty long list and it would have been even longer if sufue's post hadn't covered a large part of it.

The Tessa Crichton series by Anne Morice
The Neil Kelly series by S F X Dean
The Colonel Primrose series by Leslie Ford
The Marian Larch series and the Nightingale series by Barbara Paul
The Cassie Swann series by Susan Moody
Most of Marian Babson
Most of Angela Thirkell

I did have Cyril Hare on my list but when Korta posted that 50% Kobo discount for Canada yesterday I took a short trip over the border and there they almost all were – with very low prices and DRM-free too.

I’m mainly left with gaps in otherwise available series –

Lay On, Mac Duff! By Charlotte Armstrong
A Ring of Roses by Christianna Brand
Thinner Than Water, Death of a Minor Character, Woman Slaughter, Sleep of the Unjust , Something Wicked, Root of All Evil, and Smoke Without Fire by Elizabeth Ferrars
Rich, Radiant Slaughter by Orania Papazoglou (Jane Haddam)
Death of My Aunt, Death of His Uncle, and The Cornish Fox by C. H. B. Kitchin
Mrs Malory and the Only Good Lawyer, Mrs Malory: Death Among Friends, Mrs Malory and the Fatal Legacy, Mrs Malory and the Lilies That Fester, Mrs Malory and Death by Water, and Mrs Malory and the Delay of Execution by Hazel Holt
Up and Down and Over and Under by Mat Coward
Death is No Sportsman by Cyril Hare
Murder Machree by Eleanor Boylan
Malice Downstream by Graham Thomas

The past few years have been amazing though; I’ve already amassed more than I’ll be able to read in my lifetime.

The Attack Force Series by Joe Hunter, was originally published by New English Library. NEL was bought, and bought again. If wikipedia is correct Hatchet now owns NEL. Not sure if Hatchet own the right to the books.

Coincidentally, I picked up a paperback of this from a charity shop for £0.39 last month (and I got Forgotten Beasts of Eld for slightly more on a previous visit), but maybe more relevantly, we do have an ebook of this in the UK. It looks like there's been a lot of McKillip just released or about to be released by SFGateway over here.

I love that Fools's Run book but it leaves you wanting to know what happens next. There are a lot of books I want that have been available in the UK for a while but not in the US. I keep thinking of getting a VPN and a UK account at Amazon, but I keep hoping that the books I want will show up here before much longer and waiting.
