Title: TUC Official Buys
Post by: mostly.harmless on June 28, 2017, 04:04:25 pm
Waterstones, UK, Piccadilly Circus has it early! And they seem to have stocked up on the prior books for good measure (which have been hard to get).
Buying this one and a tDtCB for good measure.
Yay!(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170628/46cc5b2e9babc8c49342b64c4f2504e0.jpg)

I always use the address and phone number for a small public library if i'm buying from another country. Very handy if you don't have someone letting you use their address.

Gah!  This is so aggravating.  Anyone want to make some extra cash and ship me a copy?  I already ordered one from Waterston but I'm scared it won't make it in time.  I literally convinced my wife to push back our vacation so I could read this book and now it will release a day after I fly out of the country.

I still get pissed at myself for missing out on that one ebay sale where an ARC sold for 100.  The 300 ones were too much for me...

SR :)! I think you have to get Overlook's edition for HC.

A reddit moderator at r/fantasy suggests looking on Book Depository (https://www.bookdepository.com/Unholy-Consult-R-Scott-Bakker/9780356508719) to take advantage of that sweet free worldwide shipping.

No copies in Scotland at all. I went into Waterstones and they checked the system for me and said that there were a few stores down south with copies but literally every store had only 1 each. I can't remember them all but I'm sure they mentioned Carlisle, Cardiff, and a few others if anyone is in those areas. Belfast as well.

Looks like I'll just be waiting on my book depository pre-order :(.

The Princess street one in Edinburgh offered to order me one in, said a couple of days, but they had one in the Sauchihall street Glasgow so just went there instead, another person beat us both to the punch. So we have 3 of us in Scotland.

Where about in Scotland are you?

Post by: Wolfdrop on June 30, 2017, 07:03:44 pm
Awesome, didn't realise there'd be so many. I'm in Glasgow. It was the Stirling store I checkd though.

I've ordered the one in the Carlisle store to get picked up on Argyle Street, so hopefully it's only a day or two!

The book officially releases in the UK tomorrow.  I was planning on getting a VPN service to mask my IP address and buy the ebook from this site:
https://www.kobo.com/nl/en/ebook/the-unholy-consult
I wanted to confirm that it worked first before posting my plans here.  Thankfully I just checked and the book i ordered last week is already out for delivery so I can spare myself the attempt.  If anyone wishes to try and get the book early this way TunnelBear, a popular and, what I read anyway, very reliable VPN service also has a free 7 day free trial.  I will try this tonight if my book isn't delivered for whatever reason and share what I find.

EDIT:  Just wanted to thank Madness for providing that bookstore with the free preview of the first 2 chapters.  It's what gave me this idea in the first place.

To add a credit card to pay you have to use your legit address otherwise it won't work right? So how do you add an UK address on the account so you can download the ebook?  Right now it says this service is unavailable to US customers.

No, as long as your shipping address is UK it will work.  Your billing address does need to be your real one, but that won't stop you.

Make sure you are fully signed out of .com though, or it won't work.

As far as I know, books usually do not have a hard street date (unless they are huge, blockbuster releases), so they should all be available to be sold on arrival.  Hopefully you got your hands on one.

Resist! Resist! You understand not what your give up by giving in. Fight on!

Also, you can try the various methods for getting ebooks - thats a pretty good compromise.

Ditto. I'm a bit irritated that it's not available. Hoping it pops up next Tues.

BUT! (And i'm not sure if this is ok) if someone has a way for me to acquire a digital version... now(?) I'm all ears.

No matter what I'm going to keep my preorder and - as usual - I always buy an extra of the series to loan out to anyone I can convince...

I managed to buy mine off the foreign Amazon site, with a new account and a foreign address in it but apparently it's not as easy as it would seem.

I'm not exactly sure how it worked for me, but it did.

Anyone have any luck in the US? Much like thousandfold, I was told today last week...and now they are saying the 25th? I exhibited some Dunyain like patience up until now...but I don't think my skills are strong enough to wait another couple of weeks.  It's taking all my will power not to read threads with spoilers...I fear I will not be able to be strong if I have to wait until the 25th.

Ditto. I'm a bit irritated that it's not available. Hoping it pops up next Tues.

Just go to the beginning of this thread and go forward?
There's about 6 pages of posts you might wade through.

Forum Navigation 101 :) :

Click on the blue topic link on the main subforum page to go to the beginning of a thread:
http://www.second-apocalypse.com/index.php?board=36.0
That'll take you to the start.

There's a button to the far right of each topic that if you hover over it it says "latest post". Clicking that will bring you to the end of the thread.

You can always navigate to past pages by click on one of the blue page buttons on the bottom left of each page (pro tip, if you click the "..." you can see all the pages"). Dont  hit the "previous" / " next " buttons on the bottom right, this will go to a different thread entirely.

Part of this conversation might be useful if you read the next several posts:

I got an .epub from the Australian Kobo store (I'm in Canada) by registering a throw-away email address and paying using Paypal.  It's DRM'ed and I had to bring it into my reader through Adobe, so it wasn't entirely smooth & painless, but it's another way of getting a copy in addition to Amazon.

My Barnes and Noble in STL (technically, Clayton, MO) will reserve one of their four (four.....smdh) copies for me. 7/11, bruthas! BFK out!
Noticed a couple St Louisans going to be picking up TUC at Clayton Barnes and Noble...headed there now to see if can talk someone into letting me purchase tonight.

Any luck in STL? Chicago B&N told me today last week, now saying 25th. If they have it there I'll have one of my folks go pick it up and overnight it.

UPDATE: It appears that the release of TUC (at least by Barnes and Noble in STL) has been pushed back to 7/25. I have one of the four copies on reserve at the B & N in Clayton, MO. They say that when the books arrive at their store, I can acquire my copy.

I'll post further updates as new information is received. BFK signing out. Two more weeks....smdh.

Wow, that's a fairly long delay, do you have any idea as to why? :(
Seems to be happening to quite a few people - just look at the above comments where several people got their date delayed to July 25th. I wonder if it's because they're hardcover rather than paperback copies... (mine is a paperback and seems to be keeping to the estimated schedule so far)

Still have my hardcover on reserve...will use my paperback as a lender copy (if i can actually get someone else to finish the slog that is.)  Seems my friends having troubles making it past TDTCB.

TUC was my very first ebook, since I didn't want to wait any longer for the arrival of the paper version. Normally, I only read books on paper as well. Your patience muscles will be getting quite the workout then. I admire your willpower.

A heads up for anyone interested...I just called my local Barnes and Noble to see if I could get lucky and they would have a copy. I was just told that it is out, however, they are not going to get a copy as there are only 59 copies of the book in the warehouse. Just for clarity, I asked if she meant 59 copies for the state of Texas...she, politely, responded with "no, 59 copies for the united states."  So it seems I will be making my first e-book purchase...even though it goes against every fiber of my being to do so.

The motorcycle slog sounded like it was going to be nice. You know, if they're listed online and you show up rather than call (if that journey is short enough to be worth ending in possible disappointment), sometimes books are on the shelves already despite not being shown as "available" in their computers.

Toronto is definitely selling them ahead of time:

Indigo Eaton Centre: 11 in stock
Indigo Yorkdale Shopping Centre: 3 in stock
Coles Beaches: 1 in stock

One of them should be here by Thursday, I can power through over the weekend and finally start looking at, and contributing, to other threads besides this one.  I feel like I'm VERY late to the party here...hopefully the discussion will be on going for a while...so much to read and talk about!

It's not even worldwide release yet and obviously it's only the hardcores who have found their copies already outside of UK and Europe.

And since I'm off the opinion that readers have just missed so much packed within TAE I expect we'll spend months figuring out and agreeing (or not) upon what happened, let alone what's going to happen.

huskylord, coming to Zaudunyanicon? (http://www.second-apocalypse.com/index.php?topic=2175.0)

Yeah, Canada seems to be SOL regarding an ebook. Most members have figured out a way to finagle an ebook from Amazon.co.uk, .com, or kobo.com.

It was funny.  I called in ahead to ask that they reserve a copy for me just to be on the safe side.  The guy, who to his credit did end up successfully placing the hold for me, had to ask me multiple times what the title of the book was like his brain just couldn't process a novel called "The Unholy Consult."

Lol, I've heard one or two similarly humourous stories from people booking rooms for Zaudunyanicon.

The front desk just isn't able to hear and process that name (good job, Wilshire, confounding people with your brilliance ;)).

You'll make it, Woden. The day will be upon you and suddenly the moment will pass and you can begin your journey through the pages of dead, tattooed trees :).

I got an UK ebook to support the B man and to depend on when I want to search for something in the book to use to defeat Kellhus fans.

Purchased mine via Kobo.

I usually read my books on the phone, the above screenshot is on my PC. I have a portrait monitor for coding  but it also comes in handy for reading.

I had to repurchase the books for my reread last June as I originally had the books up until TWLW on my Kindle, but forgot my login. I had a few years of little to no books read due to going full blown workaholic around 2012.

Somewhat annoyed about the cover of TDTCB being different, but I got that before changing shop regions. Also I have no idea why TJE's cover is all blurry like that.

And yeah, I'm mostly an ebook as it's quicker to get the books as well as an issue with availability in this country.

I finally got my physical copy on the 4th.  I tore that open faster than a child opening Christmas presents.

The sranc take Amazon.es!!!, I will never buy another book from them. Now they tell me that I will receive my TUC copy in a fucking week when it was supposed to be received today. And they give me no fucking explanation. I will descend upon them as a hunger.

ˇQué raro! I've had much better experiences with Amazon. Although I've never used Amazon.es. Usually their customer service is top notch, what's up in Spain?!

I don't know, I usually buy from Bookdepository, but this time I tried Amazon because I thought they will be me quicker. Bookdepository usually sends me the books in 15-20 days.

It's curious because I've bought other books in Amazon last week and today they have told me that they are sending them to me next week, and this is ten days earlier than told me when I've made the order.

Amazon fucked me till the very end.
I was waiting for the courier in my office (although I am on holiday) all the morning. When the secretary left I was still waiting another hour to no avail and then I went home to have a lunch. Obviously (lol) the courier came when nobody was there, in lunchtime. Hopefully I was able to locate the place where the book was and LO! there I ran and grabbed it!
My precious!!!
I love the smell of new book, almost good as the smell of a new car, lol.

Having an actual physical book just feels better. Plus you can always make notes if you want to, and/or add those diacritic marks and circumflexes that are missing (I'm definitely guilty of the latter). ;)
