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?
That sounds pretty close to what the one in Glendale, Az has. There's a B&N down the street a little ways, but it has even less Trek books than Borders.

Haven't checked in any NYC stores recently, but none of the Borders near me in New Jersey have got the book in as yet.

Re: Destiny trilogy - speculations

Woo Hoo. Finally got my copy after the shipping was delayed by a week. The cover looks so much nicer when you look at it up close... I wonder if the covers are available as one poster..

Clay,

I was at the Borders on 34th yesterday and it's on reserve. Evidently it seems to be a hard one to come by cause the Barnes and Nobles on 5th does not yet have it either.

Unlikely, as the three covers were created by three different artists.

We're hoping to print all three text-free in STM 15 to accompany the review - the size will depend on space available.

Every Borders I have been to in the last few months has had a dearth of Star Trek books. There will usually be an entire case of Star Wars plus other media tie-ins, and maybe 10-12 older ST books. My local Books-a-Million has a newer selection, but not many more actual books. The closest B&N to me is kind of out of the way compared to Borders, so I havent' checked there in a good while.

Thanks, Man of Steel (can I call you Man for short? ). Maybe more copies will show up after the so-called "street" date.

Indeed. The Borders out near where I live in Jersey has relegated their paltry few Trek books to the very bottom shelf of the last row of their Science Fiction section. In addition to that, they don't even seem to stock the new releases until around a week after several other area stores have had them. I don't shop at this Borders much anymore....

Well, I checked BN, Borders and BDalton today and not one of them had it. I had them special order it for me at BN.

You can call me Superman.

Just order it online Clay as that may be your best bet. I did chose overnight shipping and now I have 2 copies.

Finally got it today. And then my car broke down during the process. At least I got to read the prologue while waiting for my wife to pick me up.

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