publication date for ebooks can be useful or worthless - it's worthless in cases of an author's recent releases being published in ebook format before his/her back catalog is published

here's a short example from Steven Brust's books:

Kindle ebooks publication date listing (descending):

Tiassa (hardcopy and ebook published 2011)
Dragon (hardcopy published 1998 - ebook published in 2010)
Dzur (hardcopy published 2006 - ebook published in 2010)
Iorich (hardcopy and ebook published 2010)
Jhegaala (hardcopy and ebook published 2008)
Issola (hardcopy published 2001 - ebook published in 2002)

so a book originally published in 1998 (Dragon) was published as an ebook well after more recent books were published (Iorich and Jhegaala)

I go to another site to check original publication order
