Large Print Science Fiction and Fantasy

I've been wondering about something. Does anyone know of good sources for large print "dead-tree" science fiction and fantasy books? Or for science fiction and fantasy e-books that can be formatted and printed for your own use?

I'm not trying to go into publishing; I'm just trying to get a wider variety of reading material for my mother. She's decided she needs large print. She wants absolutely nothing to do with either audiobooks or ebooks. She's more emphatic about wanting large print dead-tree books than I am about preferring dead-tree myself. {chuckle, Smile}

I know more folks on here lean the opposite way, but I thought I'd ask in case anyone happened to notice something. It could happen, and I'd really appreciate it. I'm more than slightly frustrated with the limited variety I've found so far. Mom particularly likes Misty, Anne McCaffrey, Andre Norton, and Georgette Heyer (the only non-SF writer among her favorites). While they all wrote quite a bit, only Heyer seems to have much available in large print, and even that is mostly used. {rueful smile}

Edited To Add: By "Misty," I mean Mercedes Lackey. I wrote to a group of fans who use that nickname of hers first, and forgot to replace that with her full name when I decided to ask here, too. I'm sorry for any confusion. {apologetic smile}
