Readers who are deeply interested in particular genres and subgenres of books sometimes find that the selection of Kindle titles in their niche is still more limited than they would like. While modern bestsellers are available in most genres, there are still a lot of holes in the backlist and in the depth of coverage in subgenres. For example, in the science fiction genre, Larry Niven’s relatively recent bestseller Ringworld’s Children is available for Kindle, but the first three volumes of the series, including the must-have classic Ringworld, are not. The same pattern can be found in many other genres.
Some of Nimble‘s bestsellers in these areas include
- Blood on our Hands: the American Invasion and Destruction of Iraq;
- In the Shadow of the Battleship: Considering the Cruisers of World War II by naval expert Richard Worth;
- U.S. Patrol Torpedo Boats in World War II, 1939 – 1945 by T. Garth Connelly;
- The John Boyd Roundtable: Debating Science, Strategy, and War about the aviator who designed the F-16 and invented the OODA loop;
- the never-before-translated Principles of War by Archduke Charles von Hapsburg of Napoleonic Austria;
- the path-breaking Handbook of Fifth-Generation Warfare (most people think we are still on the fourth generation!);
- the rapturously reviewed Cold War Saga by Kissinger contemporary Kempton Jenkins; and
- the magisterial Globalistan: How the World Is Dissolving Into Liquid War by Pepe Escobar.
