Alas, if i was home back in the DFW area, it is in stock :D

But out in the wilds of Midland, TX it is not in stock yet, UGH :(

I will keep checking, I have the Kindle version pre-ordered but my preference is the hard copy, if I have the space and want a better (for me) reading experience. :ugeek: Don't mind supporting the MWW with multiple copies and revenue. :!:

Oh well, just 1 1/2 more years out here in Midland for this contract. !! :cry:

Not available yet at either B&N store in Omaha NE, but the stores in Lincoln NE show it in stock.

I'd be tempted to get a physical copy to go with the pre-ordered Kindle version if I could get it in town, but I have too much going on this week for a two hour road trip. I'll just have to hope the Kindle copies download first thing Tuesday morning.

I know prior releases have actually been available at 8pm PST the previous day. I assume this is something weird due to Eastern time zones and such.. but here in Cali it's nice to be able to start on it the previous night.

TFT is available via eBooks.com as we speak. $14.99; I downloaded the ePub version...

Guess I'll be tired and grouchy at work tomorrow... :roll:

I’m pleased to report that TFT has arrived in this distant outpost of civilisation (Melbourne, Australia). Minotaur still had a few copies left after I bought mine.

And it did. And I read it.

It was a beautiful tale with several amusing plot twists. Of particular note is that while the illustrious author has a profession, giving us this novel, he also has a vocation, and his vocation shone threw beautifully and positively at key points in the tale. The two wedding ceremonies and the installation come to mind.

Who got married? That would be telling.

Mine quite nicely arrived Tuesday, courtesy of Amazon.

Then I quickly discovered that I would, indeed, be unable to read it until after my (still unscheduled) cataract surgery.

Sigh.
