Where are the ebooks?

There are more than 25 books by Robert Anton Wilson still in print. It's hard to know exactly how to count them; is the Schroedinger's Cat trilogy one book or three? When I say "in print," I am referring to books printed on paper.

More and more readers have been switching to reading electronic books at least part of the time, and this is where Wilson's estate ought perhaps to become a little more active.

Only a relatively few Wilson books are available on Kindle, for example. ILLUMINATUS! is there, as you'd expect, but the missing books include the Historical Illuminatus books, the Cosmic Trigger books (only a "study guide" for the first CT book is listed) and Prometheus Rising.

Meanwhile, ebooks have helped keep Bob Shea's work alive.
