Re: Barnes & Noble Reducing Orders of New Trek Books?

Okay, personal crisis over.. for now. First location again did not have Devil's Bargain (despite the computer implying that they did), but they were actually able to call a second nearby location and found a copy.

And I was able to pick it up the same day I finished Allegiance in Exile. I almost had to start reading a non-Trek book!

B&N's corporate offices are notorious about not communicating information to their store-level employees. It's more likely the bookseller you spoke to had no knowledge of B&N employing any 'tactics' (like reducing the quantity of orders) during their negotiations with S&S and hadn't heard of the situation until you asked about it.
Fair enough, but doesn't seem very fair to the employees.
