A Dragon's Horde of eBooks


The other day I received an email from a fan reading:

Will you please turn iron dragons daughter into an ebook?  I have troubles finding a lot of the good books in print but most times they are available in digital format. This book is an exception and hasn't been made into an ebook. It would be more accessible. Please.

This is a request I’ve gotten a lot over the years, sometimes for other books but most often for this one in particular.

So you can imagine how happy I am to be able to announce that The Iron Dragon's Daughter is now under contract with Open Road Media to be published in ebook format. In fact, it’s one of a number of books they’re going to be publishing. Those books are:

The Iron Dragon's Daughter Bones of the Earth Tales of Old Earth Vacuum Flowers In the Drift Jack Faust

To everybody who has ever asked: Thank you for caring. I’m sorry it took so long.

The good people at Open Road Media have some very cool plans for my books. I’ll let you know as they materialize.

Above: This beautiful interpretation of my novel is by Geoff Taylor. You can find his website (with many other very cool images) here.

This is wonderful news. I shall go shout it from the rooftops.

Best news I've heard so far this year!

But not "Gravity's Angels"?

Greg, the decision was made to (at the start anyway) only convert one collection of short fiction. The Open Road people have serious experience in publishing, so I accept their judgment. We chose a recent collection, rather than my first, because there was likely to be more interest in that.

Which is not to say that Gravity's Angels won't be an ebook somewhere down hte line. Just that there are no plans for that to happen at the moment.
