Simon and Schuster decided that they wanted to change the terms for how they were selling ebooks, but didn't bother to give themselves enough time to actually get everything ready. End result, retailers had to yank the books while S&S gets their act together.

Where's all the TREK EBOOKS at?
Just a guess, but as they are E(lectornic) books, they'd be somewhere online.

That was kinda the point, smartass, the new ones aren't generally online and the place with the largest number of old ones is Diesel, followed by the ones mentioned.

I just checked on the availability of Vanguard: Precipice (the next one I'm going to buy) and it seems to be available at the S&S website.

It does, yeah. But that didn't stop the five agency publishers from removing them from most stores.
