Destiny: Lost Souls is now out (or starting to appear depending on where you are).

I'm having my copy shipping to me internationally..

I ordered from Barnes and Noble and it's shipping the 14th of November which means I'll have it by Dec 1.

I'm fed up of waiting for books for a month AFTER the Americans get it. What is the problem with Amazon coordinating so it is released at the same time?!?!?

^ The books are printed in and shipped from the US, so there's going to be a lag.

But you've had the latest Bond movie for a couple of weeks now, so it's a wash.

Pocket have a UK division, they could print some copies off, but that doesn't explain a month's delay. Two weeks I could accept, but a month is too long.

And I read far more books than I watch movies, 60-70 books a year compared to 10-20 movies. I'd rather spend the price of a movie ticket on a book or two.

I don't know the particulars, but I'm betting the books are shipped via...well...ship, as in "slow-ass freighter" because it's more cost effective. If that's the case, that would explain the month-long lag.

Re: The Saga Is Now Complete

I normally manage to get books very soon after they come out by buying from Amazon marketplace sellers. I had received and read Gods of Night before most of the US people here had been able to get a hold of it.

I also read Gods of Night a fair while ago, but I couldn't find Mere Mortals for a reasonable price anywhere!

And as for us having Quantum of Solace for two weeks, it makes a bloody change for a film being released in Europe before America and Bond is British, so it makes sense!

Oh, and while I'm here, I know someone (my exs dad) who went on a sailing ship across the Atlantic which took three weeks so I find it incredibly hard to believe a container ships takes longer to cross!

Re: The Saga Is Now Complete

First, the Bond thing was a joke. Learn my posting style, newbies

Second, it's not as though the books would be instantly transported from printing press to the hold of the ship, and then instantly transported from ship to bookstore upon arrival. There's time on either end of the trip to factor in. Not that hard to figure when you think about it, actually.

(Assuming I'm right about how the books get there, and they're not just being held up by some evil British warlord who hates Star Trek books.)
