Re: Destiny trilogy - speculations

Borders called and told me my special order was in for this one (Gods of Night). Ordered it along with the currently sold out Kobayashi Maru. So I'll be halting the reading I'm currently doing (A Gutted World and the 3rd Terok Nor book) to start and finish this one. I really can't wait.

Re: Destiny trilogy - speculations

I finally, got a chance to check both Borders, and B&N and no luck yet. This is both good and bad for me, good because I'm still reading Kobayashi Maru and A Gutted World, but bad because I want to get my hands on the book.

Re: Destiny trilogy - speculations

No luck at the Borders in Fairfax or Arlington (Pentagon City) ... both say it's "on the way" or should be on its way... I may resort to Amazon.

And ParticleMan and ClayinCA, I was actually about to post something to the same effect. At least the ones in my area are carrying the newer books (still a few copies of KM and GTTS among other recent titles) still floating around. And the one in Fairfax even has a few older tites... finally got my hands on Star Charts

Re: Destiny trilogy - speculations

No luck at the Border's last night. I thought about driving over to the Borders Express in the mall, but I figure they won't have it, either. There's one close to work - I might swing by when I leave the office today and see if they have it. Haven't checked Barnes & Noble yet.

I thought about ordering it from Amazon, but I see no reason to pay extra for shipping. Plus, the moment I order the book, it'll magically appear in the store and I'll go stir-crazy waiting for my shipment to arrive.

Call the store and ask them to order it for you. I called my local BN on Monday and had it Wednesday.

Re: Destiny trilogy - speculations

Passed by a bookstore yesterday, figured I'd pop in, and there it was. That said, it'll wait on the shelf for a while, because I picked up Greater than the Sum and Kobayashi Maru at the same time, and want to get those two read before I launch into Destiny. Looking forward to it, though.

Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman

Terrific. I'm trapped in a perpetual Warner Bros. cartoon. So much makes sense now.

You're trapped? Hmm...I find that funny 'cause you're the one that keeps 'em around. BTW: Great Warner Bros. clip. Personally, I think you do like being trapped in a Warner Bros. Cartoon...it makes days go by a lot better when you don't have to think of the crap going on in the outside world.

Re: Destiny trilogy - speculations

I actually found it at Wal-Mart today, which I am still in shock over, because it usually takes at least a month or two after it's been published for them to get it. So now I just need to finish KM and then I can start it.

You got yours at Wal-Mart? Sweet! I'll be on the road when Destiny comes out...I'll have to pick it up in Salt Lake City when I get there next week...at least it gives me something to read on my way back home to Calgary (yeah right, I'll probably have it done in a night)

Re: Destiny trilogy - speculations

For anyone keeping track, the book appeared right on schedule in suburban Minneapolis this weekend.

When does BookWatch 2 begin?

Re: Destiny trilogy - speculations

To my big surprise, I got my copy from Amazon UK today! I am not used to it at all that Amazon UK is actually delivering a new Star Trek book quickly.

I have already read the first chapters and so far it is impressive.
