Looks like I may have to use Amazon.Canada instead. :)


Tony, Amazon.ca will kill you with shipping.

I pre-ordered (is that even a word?) from Borders and since they must ship it to me, there are no postal charges. Borders, Chapters, Waldenbooks --all the same outfit.

:lol: I mean that I'll be in Tucson when the book comes out, so I'll order it from Amazon.Canada from there. :wink:

Just seen this on the Cunning Artificer's website, it might be of interest to those in the UK.

"The new Discworld novel, entitled 'Unseen Academicals', is scheduled for release on the 8th of October.

Football has come to Ankh-Morpork, and the wizards must rise to the challenge without the aid of magic! With a host of new characters and some jolly good pies, the book promises to prove that football is not just about the game.

To honour the launch of the book, publishers Transworld are hosting an event right here in Wincanton. The sports ground is set to be the scene of a good old-fashioned bout of the beautiful game on the 10th of October. Terry will of course be very much in attendance and we promise to keep Dibbler away from the pies! We would like to invite those who wish to attend to dust off their rattles, knit suitable scarves and polish up on songs for the terraces.

If you would like to be a part of this historic event then please let us know as soon as possible by emailing Isobel at isobel@cunningartificer.demon.co.uk so we have an idea of numbers. Accomodation will doubtless book up early so be sure to plan ahead to avoid disappointment.

As ever, streakers will be punished heavily so those who wish to come in costume will be very welcome to do so. " :wink:

Sounds like fun!
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

I love footy. I'd play, if I lived in the UK, but I don't, so I can't.

Have a little game by yourself, in honour.

Are there no football teams in Japan you can play for?

Bloody hell!

Chapters will not ship me my UA book. They're going out of business.
But they will "apply" my purchase price to Amazon. Plus a service charge. And shipping.
