    Default Stephen King ebooks by Amazon Publishing

    Hello,
    Amazon has published a few Stephen King short stories, exclusively for them.
    I think of : UR, Mile 81, A Face in the Crowd, Guns... And i feel like i am forgetting something.

    Those are exclusive ebooks and i believe that no publisher is ever going to sell printed versions ( in english or not).
    >>> Will amazon themselves sell physical versions?
    >>> Will amazon publish translated versions of those, available digitally only? I guess that its kind of late for he titles mentionned, but when u think of it, foreign markets are let aside if the readers cant read english,,,
    Thanks!

    They only have exclusives on the works for a limited time so at some point they will be available for Steve to publish in another format elsewhere. In fact, most of them are already out in audiobook format and it's very likely they'll be considered for inclusion in a future short story collection and at that point they would be translated for foreign editions.

    I understand that they are likely to be included, later on, in a collection, but in the past, RIDING THE BULLET, for instance, was published as a standalone chapbook in Europe & Japan. So i thought that maybe they could get the same treatment. And obviously, selling a chapbook for less than 5€ is quite attractice, commercially.

    Thanks anyway for your reply.
