Looks like an Amazon pre-order may get you the item earlier than other distributors, Amazon have stock and they don't.

I would like to know about this, anyone who has pre-ordered, and gets the item, can you say when it was delivered and who it was ordered from i.e. Amazon, Book Depository, Speedy Hen, etc.

I think that I may be in future stating that if you want the earliest delivery, order from Amazon

An Australian bookseller told me that "the system" says the release date is now November 7th. No idea how accurate that might be though.

At least one lucky person has received the box-set in the UK from Amazon on Saturday, November 4th.

My copy has arrived; a little over half an hour ago; and so far I'm quite pleased with it. The box arrived in good shape in spite of, rather than because of, Amazon's awful packaging - just a simple twist of brown paper to support a heavy item in a cardboard box not much bigger than the item. Shoddy. Going on to the item itself - there was an issue, but not a big one. Vol. III came out straight away, but Vol. II was a little sticky due to residual glue inside the box. Vol. I would not come out. Looking down inside the box, I saw a little scrap of white paper - part of the box's inner lining - holding onto the d/w of the book. I very gently slid a steel rule down between the book and the wall of the box, and it came away easily. The tiny blobs of residual glue here and there were removed easily, too. So far, not too bad.
