I've hand-coded HTML for over 15 years and it would take me far longer to convert a book to HTML than it would take to write the book in the first place - after which you could commit me to a mental institution for fried brains
Besides - one of our specific secondary goals is to further people's commitment to physical books. The theory is that if we make the book well enough, people will see reason to have the physical book. And one of my primary goals in writing these books is to leave a revenue stream (however small) for College of Thelema when I'm dread and gone. Even in a protected commercial environment like Amazon, going eBook route basically means giving the book away. If one sells a million copies, it's worth it; but the occult market isn't that large.
I think we're generous with information, including answering just about anything for free on this site, giving away all of our historic periodicals digitally, etc. I'm not going to work two years to write a major work and then just give it away for not enough revenue to take a couple of people to a cheap dinner. (That would amount to abandoning physical publication forever, since our business model is to recover enough money from one book to pay for publishing the next one.)
