Non-Physical Forgotten Realms Books: Ebooks and Audiobooks Only

For a little over a decade Wizards of the Coast has heavily pushed the fact that Dungeons & Dragons novels are available in ebook form. When they started pushing the paperless option though, they also released a few novels, novellas, etc completely as digital products; meaning there are no physical copies of these books.
If you're a collector like me this is unfortunate. The trend may have even led to the shortage of novels written for the Realms in recent years (something I hope WotC rectifies soon).

This post is to point out and list all the Forgotten Realms books that are not available physically. These were all published from late 2011 through 2012.

  • Spinner of Lies by Bruce R. Cordell, also known as Sword of the Gods: Spinner of Lies, is the sequel to Sword of the Gods. Both books are part of the overarching Abyssal Plague series. While the first book is available physically, sadly the sequel is not. It only comes in ebook and audiobook formats.
  • Cold Steel and Secrets by Rosemary Jones. A novella divided into four parts, it is only available in ebook format.
  • Shadowbane by Erik Scott de Bie is the sequel to Downshadow (from Ed Greenwood Presents Waterdeep), another book that was physical with an earlier book that sadly went completely digital. In ebook and audiobooks formats.
  • Eye of Justice by Erik Scott de Bie, sometimes called Shadowbane: Eye of Justice is the sequel to Shadowbane. Again it is in ebook and audiobook formats.
  • Prince of Ravens by Richard Baker is available only in ebook and audiobook formats.
  • If Ever They Happened Upon My Lair by R.A. Salvatore is a novella only available in audiobook format, and is specifically advertised as narrated by Wil Wheaton.
  • Spider and Stone by Jaleigh Johnson is available in ebook and audiobook formats.
