Is Enterprise: The First Adventure available as an ebook?

Is anyone aware if the old Enterprise: The First Adventure by Vonda N. McIntyre is available in ebook form, singly or as part of an omnibus? I can't seem to find it anywhere. I'm not sure if it's just one of those lost classics or if I'm just missing it.

I'd wanted to pickup Prime Directive for my ereader and couldn't seem to find it anywhere. Later I found that it was part of the Worlds in Collision Signature Series ebook. I thought it may be a similar situation with Enterprise.

Thanks.

- Byron

I just checked the Barnes and Noble site, and they have it in audio and paperback, but not ebook.

Not quite an ebook, but in addiction to hardcover, paperback and audio, Amazon lists an Audible Audio version. Abridged, same as the regular audio.

Yeah... I really don't get into audio books. I especially despise anything abridged regardless of format.

Pretty much just hoping for an ebook.

Thanks for the info though.

The earliest Simon & Shuster Audioworks have material presented quite differently to the ST novels they are based upon. Any of the volumes with "Leonard Nimoy as the voice of Spock" have either Doohan or Takei narrating the abridged novels and Nimoy doing Spock's log entries, so rather than him reading slabs of the book, it's rejigged to be from Spock's point of view. They rarely feel "abridged" and most of the early ones were adapted by the authors themselves.

I bought all of the audios for the fun of having some unique voice performances on tape by the ST actors. Until the idea of general unabridged audio novels caught on with the general public, there was no concept that Simon & Shuster Audioworks were somehow inferior.

I'm not sure if it's just one of those lost classics
IIRC, Marco once said that there was a batch of ST novels, from that era, where the original media created for publishing them had become corrupted or superseded and, as limited budgets permitted, these were on a pile to eventually get retyped, reedited, reformatted and turned into eBooks. One day.
