Re: TOS: Devil's Bargain by Tony Daniel Review Thread (Spoilers!)
I got mine earlier this week. Was surprised, I ordered it and Allegiance in Exile at the same time and they told me the 26th was the release date, don't expect it earlier than that so that was wrong. Almost a third of the way through. I'll reserve comment until I'm done. And I still like the cover a lot.
My understanding is that book release dates don't really have to be adhered to, unless it's a big release like Harry Potter or something. While you shouldn't really expect a book before its release date, it's not uncommon for it to hit shelves within a week prior to release. Although I still haven't seen Devil's Bargain in my area yet.
