Which titles will have e-editions?
Upon the launch of our e-books program in March 2012, we will release all 2010
and 2011 titles, and all 2012 titles already published. From March 2012 onward,
e-book editions will be released approximately three to four weeks after the
release of print editions. We will later issue e-books for selected older
titles if sufficient demand arises.
How do I buy e-books?
You can buy e-books direct from the Stylus website, or buy them from the
resellers with whom we have arrangements to resell our e-books. The resellers
with whom we currently have agreements are Apple, Barnes & Noble (Nook),
Blio, Google Books, and Kobo. We have yet to agree on terms with Amazon.
When buying direct from Stylus through our shopping cart, you will receive a
billing confirmation from Stylus and a separate e-mail from our digital
warehouse, codeMantra, which will give you a link to a page from which you can
download the books you ordered.

available to students on a per-semester basis at a reduced price.
