The Long Earth - countdown

Postby Tonyblack » Wed Jun 06, 2012 9:34 am

The official release date is the 21st June in the UK. That's just over two weeks away. :D

Where will you get your copy and when?

Has anybody ever read anything by Stephen Baxter before? Is it any good? :?

I'll probably take a trip to Tesco on the release date and get a copy from there.

I have read "Flood" (thank you Sjoerd) and found it enjoyable. I haven't read his other stuff tho. :D
The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.

The cheapest I've found it for so far is £9,87 with free delivery from Amazon.co.uk

It seems to be out on June 19th in the US. I've preordered a copy for Sharlene for $14.48, but you usually pay for postage in the US.

Can't get free delivery from amazon for sales less than £25 to Ireland so the cost was working out to about 19 euro for me so went with the cheaper option :D

Spoiler: show
Of course, if you got it for Kindle, delivery would be free . . . but don't tell Bouncy.
:shhh:

Some of his used SF ones go for serious amounts of money.

I have ordered both Poo and long Earth from PJSM so I won't get them for about 3 weeks at the least.

If you ordered the Poo one as well would that qualify you for the free postage Pip.

I have read a book he wrote with Arthur C. Clarke, can't remember the title but it was good ;)
