What's up with the disappearing Kindle books?

In the past 24 hours, both Magic Bleeds and Changes have disappeared as Kindle books on Amazon. I found a couple others too. This is a bit worrisome as the Kindle ain't much good if you can't read on it.

Hi:

When you get a minute, please check out my three Kindle books at Amazon. Just use my name to search, and they will pop up. Or, if you prefer to search by title, they are:

1. Assignment in Antibua
2. Julius Caesar
3. Spymaster

Many thanks.
