For a time, John E. Stith novels are going to be more difficult to buy.
I've ended my reprint contract with Wildside Press, and I plan to pull my titles from Amazon Kindle this month. This is in preparation for moving to a new press with all new covers, some content cleanup, and a lack of DRM on all titles, to be as friendly as possible to readers. Eventually all my novels will be back in print. I'll announce more about the schedule here and on my Facebook page and on my Twitter feed.
