^But there is no hardcover edition of this book, while there is an e-book edition. So I think the answer is self-evident.

Seeing as nobody has yet voted, can we please have the option for Better then above average, but not quite outstanding?
I know my ranking page shouldn't really act as a constraint on the forum of course, but just personally I'd prefer to keep the established structure so new threads continue to be comparable to the old ones, for that purpose.

Has anyone seen a hardcopy version?

Well, Therin obviously has one, but he visited DRGIII recently (or is still with him?), so I guess he got one of DRG III'S author copies.

Our pics of Vasquez Rocks went viral:

Edit: Hehehehe. Quick update. Still in Los Angeles, off home tomorrow. I just received an email from Galaxy Bookshop in Sydney (dated tomorrow), and the new "Allegiance in Exile" novel has just arrived there. Well, I had a scoop for all of four days.

I know that, but perhaps the poster didn't, and mixed up two terms. I was seeking a simple clarification on that. My apologies.

The other way to post spoilers is to use the advanced reply window (either by hitting "Post Reply" on the left or "Go Advanced" beneath the Quick Reply window) and click the yellow smiley icon on the top right, the one with the x for a mouth.

Is the <spoiler> just a throwaway reference or a plot point of the novel? I'm not much into the 5YM but I love continuity porn.

My copy had dispatched, so I'll be getting it very soon.

WOW! I don't bother with many TOS novels (least favourite era, and not keen on the stand-aloneness) but I did really enjoy the excerpt from this one so was pondering it, depending on reviews. But now I'm sold in a flash; off to order a copy!

Well.

Wasn't going to buy because I'm not huge on TOS books, but this made it for me.
