You didn't, to quote an old saying: "Pride goes before a fall", I was too caught up in the thrill of having the book early to think that maybe it was already released in other areas, I have no one but myself to blame...

(Although, all those websites that had the March 25th release date didn't help things much...)

Yeah, I think they do that just because they need some kind of date.

Maybe they should start adding 'ish' to their publication dates.

These days that release date seems to be more for the roll-out of the digital editions than anything else.

Is the book floppy like the first one was?

I gather it can vary within the run of a single book, but my copies seem pretty sturdy.

Hopefully Amazon sends me a sturdy one. The floppy one keeps slipping out of my hands.

Given my opinion of Chris' last few (six or so) novels and it seems, my opinion being counter to everyone elses around here, I'm passing on this.

Been so busy the last few days, that I completely forgot to order this one. Just placed my order, now the waiting begins.

Can't say I have been disappointed by mr Bennett sofar, so let's hope that streak holds.

Yesterday I talked to a bookstore employee, and according to him, his store gets strict orders from their distributor not to shelve new Trek novels (and others) before their release date. I was surprised to hear that. So maybe it is unusual now for the books to be available early.

In any case, though, it should be available on Tuesday.

I ordered this book awhile back I hope it will come in the mail in the next few days. Barnes&Noble sometimes will have the book come out a day or so earlier than the announced released date.

My copy is on its way from Amazon and should arrive tomorrow. I look forward to reading it, as I do all of Christopher's work.
