I pre-ordered this book in April, with 2-day shipping. The book came out on August 2. It is now August 7. Not only has the book not arrived yet, it hasn't even been shipped yet. The delivery estimate is through October 5. I expected to be able to read my book before school starts (in a few weeks).

My vendor just told me it's been postponed indefinitely.

I was wondering why the Kindle edition said it wasn't coming out until December 31, 2025.

Does anyone know *why* exactly it's been postponed? I've been foaming at the mouth waiting for this thing...

Absolutely crazy! I loved the first one and had the original release date marked on my calendar. Apparently someone has a used copy of the hardback on Amazon for $316.19.

What the heck happened here ?!?

I'm pretty sure that the "used" copy is a scam of some sort.

What? I've been waiting for this book to come out for months, and NOW you tell me that you're having trouble getting it?

This.... does not bode well. I really wish Duane would've posted something on her blog or summat about it...

I found out what happened! Took emailing DAW books with a bluntly worded query along the lines of "... where's our book, people are going mad wondering".

Turns out? They still don't even have a full manuscript on it. All the book sites jumped the gun. No idea when it'll be out.

I have very strong suspicions that the current "ships within 6-8 days" is another red herring.

Zachary says:
That's because it's a pre-order atm. Once it comes out, then it would apparently ship within 6-8 days of that point. Still, unlikely that it's coming out soon, as the release date is still set as 2025

I was sent a link today saying that it's available (again) and the listed release date is still August 2011. Not sure where you're seeing 2025. I saw elsewhere that it's got a late 2012 projected release date (August?). In any case: Amazon is trying to pull our legs (_again_).

At "publisher" in the notes it reads "Daw, Dec 31, 2025"
