EDIT:

Oh, and the SRD official news about publication is (is this what you saw dlp?) is:

Quote:
In the US, Putnams/Ace plans to release "Fatal Revenant" on October 9, 2007. In the UK, Orion/Gollancz has the book scheduled for October 18. (The countdown on my home page is for October 9.)

Curiously, October 2007 will be the 30th anniversary of the first publication of "The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever" in simultaneous hardcovers by Holt, Rinehart and Winston.

Actually, I was going by the posted date that flashes with the FR trailer on the main page.

I'm with you Warmark!

I vote we ban SRD for not making simultaneous publication dates!

In true materialistic/acquisitory/anticipatory glee, I have pre-purchased my copy via Amazon.

No, but I did the same for ROTE, and it arrived in the mail on the official release date.

Amazon usually get it to you on time. They also occasionally break release on preorders by a few days.

Yes - it updates. Just a PHP script that adds up the days between the current date and October 9th - nothing fancy (so don't try to watch it as your clock turns over at midnight - it won't change that way). Smile

I ordered a copy of Fatal Revenant on Amazon.com a couple of days ago. If I remember correctly, my copy of Runes was dispatched a couple of days before the official release...but that's probably because it takes about 10 days to get to Oz and so by the time I got it it was well and truly past the release date.

Yes, a wonderful, modest way to count down the days. As opposed to the borg-ification of the Watch that we had for a while. Very Happy

I haven't visited in a while; new job, etc. I just found out October 9th is the expected release date in the US. I'm freaking out! My birthday is that weekend; what a GIFT!!! I'm going to pre-order my copy NOW. I think it's going on the best seller list immediately. Counting the days.....

The only way I will pre-order with Amazon is if they guarantee delivery on October 9th. Otherwise, I will make a trip to Knoxville to buy it that morning.

Yup, it appears we're going to get a preview, probably in .pdf format (like we had with ROTE and the first chapter.)
