Image I've ordered a signed copy, as well, so I don't know if that means my book will be delayed, or not? Image

No it wont be delayed if you have ordered it from PJSM Prints as they will probably have advance copies signed.

I've ordered a copy (along with Bernard Cornwell's new book) from Amazon Canada so that I can get the Kidby cover (and in the case of the Cornwell get it four months earlier). :D

Err... I'm not sure :shock:
*goes and looks for pictures*
It does look familiar, but I am not sure at all...
It is pretty big, though. Something like five or six floors and pretty modern.

It is probably Foyles in Charing Cross Road that has 6 floors it's across the road from Borders but that has only 3 or 4 and it is only been there a few years, Forbbiden Planet is only 5 minutes walk away from there it has all SF,Fantasy,Horror books graphic mags, models,DVD's etc. well worth a look.
