Amazon has finally listed Old Man’s War for sale. Also, it has reposted the customer reviews it had previously removed. I’m now a happy boy.
And yet they still don’t think they’re shipping my copy till January 1st.
You know, I wondered where my review went.
I may be a Scalzi shill, but at least I’m an honest unpaid Scalzi shill.
Mine shipped today. Finally.
Did you see somebody’s trying to sell it on Amazon Marketplace for $25.73? What’s up with that?
I’ve got mine!!
“Did you see somebody’s trying to sell it on Amazon Marketplace for $25.73? What’s up with that?”
In all likelihood, it’s one of the many review copies that were sent out. Much the same happened with my last book (and why I’m not a big fan of having the used copies button so close to the new copies).
Went into the local Borders emporium on Friday eve to pass the time. Just for grins, I had the help desk check inventory on OMW. As of that morning there were 7 copies on hand. I had them direct me to their shelf location with the intent of purchase. No joy – but a big empty hole on the shelf where they’d been! I’ll get my copy eventually, but it is looking good for a sell-out of the first press run.
I am sorry you missed picking up the book, of course. On the other hand, selling seven copies of the book in a day from the same store — well. That *is* good news.
What the hey? Neither of my local booksellers has a copy, and they both computered “it comes out in January.” These were chains, too, Dalton’s and Barnes and Nobles. Well, I’m still going to wait to buy it locally.
