Yeah, but it doesn't have an inventory search, which is what I was looking for. I realize I probably should have been more clear, I apologize.
Borders has their own site now which is why they split from Amazon.

Re: Destiny trilogy - speculations

Quick question: in this month's Star Trek magazine, it says that the ENT novel Kobayashi Maru is the second lead-in to the Destiny trilogy. If that's so, what's the first one?

Well, I'll have to wait till November 3, apparently, since amazon.de seem to get their English books from amazon.uk...

Not necessarily, in my experience most of the time they have the books before the stated date.

The feature is still there. When you pull up a page for a specific item, you should see a box to the right of the description with three buttons, and below them, a box to enter your zip code. Fill that, click "go", then scroll down the resulting page.
I it found on the page for Greater than the Sum. I guess it just isn't up yet for Gods of Night.
Ok, that's my problem, I've been looking at Star Trek 101 which I thought had been hitting the stores. It didn't occur to me to look I knew was out already.

Well, The Book Depository have screwed up for the first time ever!

[W]e sold our last copy of the above title just before you purchased it.
Which is more than a little annoying!

I'm sorry to hear that and I got my email confirmation this morning and it'll be with me by trusty (yeah right) Royal Mail by the end of the week!

Re: Destiny trilogy - speculations

The Barnes & Nobles in Glendale, CA (near Los Angeles) says it will have Destiny in store on the 30th. I'm tempted to order online, but it probably won't arrive any faster than just waiting for the store to get its copy.

Has anyone else noticed that Southern California stores get books later than more eastern parts of the country? Is that because the books ship from the east?

Also, Borders has stopped being a reliable source of Trek. At most a dozen and half books, usually old, are in stock at the Borders around Pasadena/Glendale. B&N always wins in regards to Trek stock. Is it like that for others?

Re: Destiny trilogy - speculations

TheBookDepository has now dispatched mine and I should have it delivered within the week, but there are still about four or five books to read before I can read Gods of Night.
