Lost Girls should be available in the UK now. The copyright on Wendy Darling has finally expired there.

I haven't been able to find it in any stores yet.

And now Amazon is saying it doesn't ship for 1 to 4 months!

I ordered it last week on amazon and it is saying I will receive it by november 26th though.

I pre-ordered through Amazon last week and they said I would get it by next week, or at least before the month is over.
I preordered mine back on Oct 6th and it still has not been shipped. I have received everything else that I ordered at that time. It still says that expected delivery date is Dec 1st.

Alan Moore's graphic novel Lost Girls stars Peter Pan's Wendy Darling, The Wizard of Oz's Dorothy, and Alice in Wonderland's Alice, and it delves into the sexuality of all three characters. In some areas, the book is unable to be sold due to child pornography concerns. In Britain, Wendy Darling's copyright was held by Great Ormand Street Hospital, and they held up publication of the book there until the beginning of 2008 when Wendy finally became public domain in the UK.

That actually rings a bell as I'm sure my ex told me about it! I havn't seen it on any shelves though, so not sure if it's been released or not over here.

Have we got two threads about Amazon shipping this book now?
More like two threads about people bitching about it not being sent through the post or some such!

Yeah, OK, this is getting a bit out of hand. Since we do have a thread for this particular topic let's please keep that there:

http://www.trekbbs.com/showthread.php?t=73448

Let's reserve this topic for discussion and reviewing of the book itself as opposed to who's spotted it where and when/how it was shipped.

Thanks

How much detail can people reacting to the book go into?

About this much, where there is discussion of the 1st book or perhaps this much where there is discussion on the 2nd book.

Re: Star Trek: Destiny: Lost Souls - Discuss/Grade

Getting back to the topic... I have to wonder when we'll find out
and


Overall, this was very good, although with this being a couple years ahead of the rest of the series, I have to wonder if it'll be ages before the rest of the series catch up to Destiny. I can't say anything other than "holy shit, that ending was somehow formulaic and yet also unexpected". I also thought Ezri making captain Picard-style would turn out badly, but I was pleasantly surprised. Will there be an Aventine series following this at some point?

I'll probably end up rereading these almost as often as I do Millennium.

@Marco when he inevitably sees this: Omnibus edition = free money.

Edit: Why do the spoiler tags work differently here? Every other vbulletin forum I'm on has [spoiler] text [/spoiler]... what's different here?

That depends on what you mean by "the rest of the series." The next books in the TNG, Voyager, and Titan series will all take place after Destiny (well, the next VGR book will begin two years earlier and fill in the intervening time, but it will end up some time past the trilogy). Otherwise, DS9 and Gorkon/Klingon Empire are about four years behind DES and Corps of Engineers was about three years behind when last we saw it. The last New Frontier book was set about two years prior to DES, and it's unclear when the next one will take place.

Will there be an Aventine series following this at some point?
Probably not, but the Aventine is featured in A Singular Destiny early next year.

You will get answers to both those questions in 2009.

We have a different spoiler system. Here we get to specify what the spoiler is about and hide the actual spoiler. It's an additional warning of sorts.
