NEW YORK, N.Y. - Sherman Alexie is learning to live with e-books, conflicts and all.
Once one of the harshest opponents of books on a screen, Alexie allowed a handful of his works to be released digitally in recent years and now is making seven additional books available.
Open Road Integrated Media, a digital publisher, announced Monday that it had acquired rights to "The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven," ''Reservation Blues" and other early Alexie fiction. The new editions come out Oct. 15.
The author has denounced Amazon.com's Kindle as "elitist" and worries about the future of physical stores. But in a video statement released by Open Road, he said he wanted his books to be read as widely as possible.
