Wouldn't be shocked if Stu's copy didn't come directly from HarperCollins themselves.


Yep, mine came from head office in London, packed in a padded envelope inside a padded envelope, so no bumps!

It is actually a very sturdy slipcase; probably the sturdiest I have seen from HC in a long while, so I think they will stand up well to the postal service.

Meh. Binding, 90% of the value of a modern book is in the jacket, so I am told :)

There is definitely room for improvement on the positioning and fidelity of the imagery on the binding (eye, dragon ears, etc), but overall, I think it has turned out well enough. Perhaps these are things that might get resolved in a second print. I'm not sure whether 4,000 copies will sell through to justify another print, of course.

I'll give the book a more detailed inspection later.

I ordered with my copy from SpeedyHen who say the book isn't officially published until the 5th Oct. And yet in NZ someone has their mucky paws on a copy...

I did 15-20 hours of unpaid labour [which no one asked me to do - I am a tinkerer] to get it, so you might be better off for having the delay! :)

Nice! Thanks for all the pics. Will have to wait a bit for mine to arrive, I think...


Yeah, I got the luxury DHL treatment, rather than the usual snail mail :)
