I wonder if that was the quality problem that necessitated the reprinting - excess glue?

That quote mentions "the d/w"...

Wayne and Christina report on their blog that this excess glue was the issue

Also of note: "At the same time, however, HarperCollins have received orders for the boxed set far beyond the number they had predicted, and have taken the new Companion and Guide back to press."

Thanks for the information!

Had an email today from Speedyhen about my order.

Good afternoon,

I chased the publisher to find out when this will be published but I am afraid they still do not have a publication date. I wanted to make you aware of this and will of course keep you updated if there are any changes.

Kind regards,

Customer Service


They seem to think it has not been published yet, though it has, and it looks like they got no copies, only Amazon appear to have got them on the 2nd of November.

I have pointed out that it has been published and perhaps they might want to have a chat with HarperCollins about why they got no copies but Amazon did last week
