I ordered a deluxe Tales from the Perilous Realm on 9 January. It didn't arrive, and my two emails were ignored. I have now made three phone calls to HarperCollins, and finally got a promise that they will send me a copy; but I am not very impressed with them.

Just as an update to finalise this thread, HC have agreed to send me another set to the correct address.

There were a few odd things that didn't quite stack up in the info I got from HC, so I'd recommend anyone ordering from the site just takes screen-shots of the address details as the order is confirmed, especially if you are using different billing and delivery addresses. This is important as the email confirmation they send out does not include any address info.

However, like I say, they have done the right thing, and all is well that ends well.

Sellers on eBay and other sites have had this available "for pre-order" for a while now, but the book is not complete yet according to the last news I got from Doug. No updates on when it will be ready and issued, I will certainly pass on any news I can as soon as it is available!

It definitely is not available yet from the publisher.

Well, I unfortunately can't make it to Moreton this year. So I will contact Andy and you, Angie, in order to obtain a signed copy.

...also can't lovingly look at my HOME's any more as I took Khamul's advice and turned them round so the spines are inwards. -Trotter

O dear! I hope I've not made you too unhappy Trotter!? Personally I don't think I could bare the thought of having any of my books literally de-valuing (or rather deteriorating in condition) as they sat on my shelf. Eventually they will be brought forth in all their glory; but until then, and since I have to double up my books in any case!, they can sit behind other less important books.

Having said that, the habit (of turning books around or hiding them behind others) is perhaps driven by my Silmarillion collecting; where there is (perhaps with other books there is not so much!) a real danger of spine fading were they all on open display.
