Mobipocket.com has 20 of Dean Koontz backlist in ebook format. This is progress. I didn’t see any of my favorite titles like Lightning or Dragon Tears in there but one can only hope. Looks like all the books in his popular Odd series is available. I did read and enjoy the first book in the series.
For those anxious readers who don’t have ereader, you can also purchase High Noon a few days early at Mobipocket and there is also a free sample chapter for you to download and read at your computer. You’d have to download the free Mobipocket Reader software in order to read it. One must ponder why it is that Mobipocket and ereader.com are getting exclusive deals for content on some of the most anticipated books weeks in advance from everybody else. Anybody know? Anyone care to enlighten us?
In other news, I see Diana Gabaldon has been busy writing historical mysteries featuring Lord John. She has not one but two Lord John books coming out a month apart, the first in August and the second in November 2007. I have yet to read the first Lord John book. I must get started.
Last but not least, I see that Judith McNaught has a new book coming out in November 2007, title, Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You. It must be me because I haven’t had much luck with Ms. McNaught’s contemporaries as I did with her historical novels in the late 80’s and early 1990’s. You know. The classic novels like Paradise, A Kingdom of Dreams and my absolute favorite, Almost Heaven.
