I know that happened in the past, but I thought publishers had tightened up the proof-reading process (and this is Tor, not Baen).

Now if the Author was send out ARCs before turning in the first draft, that would be another possibility.

But I wouldn't hold my breath.

Plus, even the official Baen E-ARCs undergo some revision. If you've followed David Weber's comments in the Honor Harrington forum, he's had to make a number of changes to clarify things based on reader's confusion.

So I think I'll just wait until the final version comes out.

If I have to, I'll wait. Otherwise, I'll bid.

IIRC, Tor doesn't do earcs. I am afraid we are going to be dependent of snippets. Let them flow... :D

Paper ARCs end up on sale on EBay. I hope that happens soon.

TOR definitely does ARCs. These are typically large format paperbacks sent out to select reviewers and book purchasers when the initial draft is sent in to get (hopefully positive) reviews and advertising hype going before the book hits shelves. I own several, but they're all Baen ARCs from before the days of eARCs.

I'm still hoping for some snippets. Back in the good ole days whem Drak was doing the posting, they would start as long as 6-9 months prior to publication and continue right up through publication date. That promoted some wonderful discussion up on the forums.

Sorry, I'm slightly confused as to the discussion between 2 different publishers here..

Is Safehold published by a different company than Honorverse books are? ((I just had my first e-arc experience with the newest Honorverse book... so is that not going to happen with the new Safehold book?))
