The last two Spenser novels by the late great Robert B. Parker will be Painted Ladies, available on October 5 of this year, and the just-announced Sixkill, out on May 3, 2011. If past practices are an indication, both will be available on Kindle.
I always enjoyed the understated drama and simple elegance of the Spenser novels' hardback cover artwork. That's one area where the iPad and other color-screen devices have an advantage over the Kindle: allowing us to see a book's cover art in all its glory, not in often-murky black and white. The Kindle is still the best way to read an e-book, though.
