You can put me down for one, definitely. Where will we be able to order from?

Yes, where do we order from - I am happy to pre-order now.

Should be able to order on Amazon etc. once they are updated with cover image/new price. They were informed of these this week, but it takes time for updates to roll through.

Amazon and other sites are currently listing the old price estimate (cost reduced thanks to not having to produce any CGI - many original colour pictures were found), but should update shortly.

So, has anyone received their copy yet? I've got one on order with Amazon UK, but they still have it as 'not available'.

Chris has said on SP that its still in the preparation for publishing stage as both are rather busy with their full time jobs at present.

So hopefully it shouldn't be too long  :thumbsup:

The printer's 'mock-up' was printed last week, all OK, so the main print run will happen this week.

Provisional 'launch' date 15th August, but may have copies this week.

Will keep you posted!
