TOMBS Is Here! (Pre-Order Bargains Have One Day to Go)

The word had already been circulating, that the printed edition of TOMBS: A CHRONICLE OF LATTER-DAY TIMES OF EARTH, while still with an official publication date of June 1, was expected to be physically available several days early.  A friend then reported last week that her pe-ordered copy had already arrived from Amazon, and, today, a copy has also come into my hands — that is, on May 30.  So TOMBS is here, and a lovely volume it is too! A cursory look-through indicates the proof corrections I found, at least, have all been corrected.  The book looks delightful.

But also it does remain in a ghost realm of sorts, actually in hand for some but not “officially” actually published, which brings up an interesting opportunity.  Both Amazon and Barnes & Noble, whilc no longer terming them “pre-order” prices as such, are still offering substantial discounts of a tad over a third of the list price off, still available as of today and presumably tomorrow, the 31st of May, as well.  Presumably these will be over by Wednesday, official “official” publishing time, but if you haven’t ordered a copy already — and think that you might — it might pay to check by Amazon or B&N prior to Thursday, by pressing here or here, for a really good deal.  But after that they may go back to the cover price of $14.95, so it’s best that one hurry!

  1. “tomorrow, the 31st of July” (???) Did we just skip two months or what? I know what you meant, of course. It is definitely a real bargain right now, folks!

    • Time must fly when you’re having fun (oops–thanks for the catch!). Actually the Interwebs were being very naughty last night and I, with the Cave Computer, had to battle to get anything up at all (they especially balked at posting the picture — BAD interwebs!). Triana on the other hand ate a cricket, so it wasn’t a bad night for everyone–at least non-crickets.

      • Our computers have had internet prob’s too –need to upgrade them –but why do that yet when they are still working (knock on wood!) Congrats to Triana for the cricket catch, speaking of catches. 🙂
