Happy New Year everyone,
Has anyone else noticed the above edition being currently sold as pre order for £17.31 from their stated price of £25? ISBN seems to be same as Book Depository ed but BD states initial price as £40.

Have placed my preorder presuming that they will honour the price if they have cocked up....

Thanks for the update gilraen. I had trouble finding this edition on Amazon, so I am widgetizing it here for future reference. I would think that the discrepancies in price are because HarperCollins hasn't officially decided what the price will be, or has changed the price once or twice as the edition gets closer to publication. I don't have any better information at this time, sorry. Good idea to lock in the lower of the prices though, just in case! Amazon has been quite good at honoring pre-order prices even when ridiculous (a few of us here got copies of the CoH deluxe edition for £0.80 each when they had a typo on the price for a few days).

I just got a response from HarperCollins on this. They are confident that there will be a release in September of this year, but final details remain to be worked out - some information that is on various websites is out of date. The price has not been finalized since the 'bells and whistles' haven't all been decided on yet.

Thanks for the heads up, gilraen. I placed a pre-order as well.
