    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.

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

    ^ That's because I'm the Daffy Duck to your Bugs Bunny. I won't quit as long as you keep writing because...

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

    Borders called and told me my special order was in for this one (Gods of Night). Ordered it along with the currently sold out Kobayashi Maru. So I'll be halting the reading I'm currently doing (A Gutted World and the 3rd Terok Nor book) to start and finish this one. I really can't wait.

    I finally, got a chance to check both Borders, and B&N and no luck yet. This is both good and bad for me, good because I'm still reading Kobayashi Maru and A Gutted World, but bad because I want to get my hands on the book.

    No luck at the Borders in Fairfax or Arlington (Pentagon City) ... both say it's "on the way" or should be on its way... I may resort to Amazon.

    And ParticleMan and ClayinCA, I was actually about to post something to the same effect. At least the ones in my area are carrying the newer books (still a few copies of KM and GTTS among other recent titles) still floating around. And the one in Fairfax even has a few older tites... finally got my hands on Star Charts :D

    No luck at the Border's last night. I thought about driving over to the Borders Express in the mall, but I figure they won't have it, either. There's one close to work - I might swing by when I leave the office today and see if they have it. Haven't checked Barnes & Noble yet.

    I thought about ordering it from Amazon, but I see no reason to pay extra for shipping. Plus, the moment I order the book, it'll magically appear in the store and I'll go stir-crazy waiting for my shipment to arrive.

    Call the store and ask them to order it for you. I called my local BN on Monday and had it Wednesday.

    Passed by a bookstore yesterday, figured I'd pop in, and there it was. That said, it'll wait on the shelf for a while, because I picked up Greater than the Sum and Kobayashi Maru at the same time, and want to get those two read before I launch into Destiny. Looking forward to it, though.

    Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman

    You're trapped? Hmm...I find that funny 'cause you're the one that keeps 'em around. BTW: Great Warner Bros. clip. Personally, I think you do like being trapped in a Warner Bros. Cartoon...it makes days go by a lot better when you don't have to think of the crap going on in the outside world.
