Peaceable Kingdoms available!
 
Can't be sure for other online retailers and bookstores, but I just ordered my copy of Peaceable Kingdoms on bol.com.


So yeah, can't wait!! :D

Ordered mine months ago, and recall seeing a week or two back that Dayton had gotten his first batch of author's copies...

It is going to be very hard not to ferret out spoilers while I await the amazon release date...

I'm only half way through Poisoned Chalice, I'm going to have to finish it up this weekend. I finished the last 2 in the series in a day each but some personal stuff got in the way of letting me do the same with Chalice. I'm looking forward to seeing how it all ends up.

Anyone know any early ebook sites that have it available ?

Man, I would love something like that. Unfortunately we only have chain bookstores here, and you're lucky if they get any release on time.

/...may still sadly drive out and stare at the shelving just in case.

I'm lucky in that Galaxy is in Sydney and I live in an outer Sydney suburb, and also make a point of traveling into the city every Thursday night (since December 1979) to pick up books from them and comics from a specialist comic shop (which only stopped getting Trek books when Diamond Distributors stopped putting Simon & Schuster publications in the weekly orderpak). But Galaxy has standing orders for customers all over Australia.

Are you not able to find a dependable, efficient science fiction specialist store somewhere in USA that does mail order? :confused:

Wow, so I had a Christmas miracle. I drove out there this morning, figuring I'd just get a cup of coffee before people started coming over. This bookstore never has anything on time. And it had a copy! I'm thinking its possibly because the author is also a Floridian, and booksamillion tends to showcase local authors. Thanks for the heads up about the contest!

You can usually order stuff online, but unfortunately, local stores are almost impossible to find here. The only self run book shops tend to be used stores, as all the others are driven out by Barnes and Noble and Books-a-million. I do occasionally drive up to Tampa or Orlando though to make large purchases of backlogged comics and books I want in hard copy.

Just got mine in Barnes & Noble. I checked the shelves, and it wasn't there, but as I passed by a stocking cart, I checked and it was on the cart! WooHoo!!

One might say you found it in a stocking on Christmas Eve....
