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.

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...

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)

As you may know, if you're not fixed on a hardcover edition, you can get the UK TPB or the ebook. That's how I got my fix, anyway.

After finding out about the July 25 release date at Clayton B/N I went ahead and ordered soft cover copy from Book Depository online-should have it in a week or so. 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.

BTW, if anyone in Stl area is interested in getting together and discussing the series I would absolutely love to meet any local fanboys/fangirls-it has been a long and lonely slog :). Feel free to PM if interested (will be anxiously awaiting messages!)

Beardfisher King drives a taxi somewhere around there , I assume in the city. Just start hailing cabs ;) I'm sure you'll find him eventually.
