Only thirty one days until May, and Curse of the Mistwraith hits the shelves in the USA, once again.
Get ready - there will be a launch party!
Really happy that's happening for you. (And for your readers) Long overdue. *cheer*
*Pictures the throngs, gathered near Janny's local bookstore as though they were awaiting a Star Wars movie.*
"Paravians to the left. Clansmen in the middle. Fellowship, Necromancers and hedge witches, to the right. 'Ear now, 'oo left this bloody Khadrim in the middle of the road?"
Tick, tick, Talespinner. Muchas congratas; it's been a long time!
i have been lurking here for some time now, i wanted to let you know that looks like it will be even earlier than that
Amazon just changed curse of the mistwraith to "in stock"
and my order containing it went to "shipping sonn"
can't wait to finally read this series
Or Raifman, welcome here!
And thanks for the sharp lookout!
May folks pile up for their orders in droves...I like that image, Mark Stephen Kominski!
So let it be written, so let it be done, ! ;-)
*Wonders why he's wearing Pharoh's headgear all of a sudden*
My Amazon order has shipped with an estimated delivery date of April 7 though it's possible I could see 'em on Monday the 6th. One of 'em is getting shrink wrapped for posterity.
Mine also shows Tuesday for arrival date. And usually it does arrive early.
Just looked at UPS it says MONDAY
What I don't understand is why I can't order these from Canadian stores. Not that I have an issue with ordering from the US - but I thought the idea was that they would be available throughout North America? They aren't listed on Chapters or Amazon.ca that I can find.
When my friend who works at Bakka comes back from Vacation, I am going to see if she knows what is up.
I have a sighting in the wild - B&N, in Tulsa, of all places. Go figure! Curse is on the shelves again!
Jana - thank you for letting me know this is a problem, I will report it back, immediately!
Theresa - wow, yay! Thanks for reporting the sighting!
The Relaunch Begins!!!
Word back on Canadian listings: Amazon Canada should be quickly corrected - the chains may take a little longer, it's being addressed.
If anyone else encounters problems, do speak up! What you notice could be critical, caught in time, the correction is a godsend.
Thanks again, Jana.
Wonderful news - and I will keep my eyes out!
"I will keep my eyes out!"...
if you keep your eyes out of your head however will you see anything? <g,d,rlh>
I've infected the Gryphon with my silliness.
*Wonders if it will take sunchildren to lift the curse....*
Was just at B&N in Charlottesville, VA and there were 3 copies on the shelf. Waiting for payday to pick up a new copy.
something funny just happened
Warhost of Vastmark changed to shipping soon on amazon, before The Ships of Merior
also has amazon sold out on The Ships of Merior???,
it is no longer available for order (i already ordered mine and it seems like there is no change about it)
also i am reading curse and enjoying it greatly
Or Raifman - thanks for the heads-up - the great Gryphon here already noticed this, and I've queried my editor in London - it's Easter weekend, so I don't expect a response till next week.
I'll report back just as soon as I find out - I deeply appreciate your post. If I hadn't been informed, this would have been critical.
I ordered the first three at the same time and received Warhost almost immediately. Ships and Curse finally shipped out in the same pack after four or five days of "shipping soon".
Ah Trys - you make me laugh. ::grin::
I will endeavour to keep them both in my head and on the lookout!
My package containing Curse and Ships just arrived, but instead of Ships, I got another copy of Warhost.
Maybe Ships is going to be a rare prize, like Boardwalk in the old McDonalds Monopoly game ;)
I have no response, yet, from London...
Sadly Brian, the shipping clerk (in your case, at least) is apparently not a Wurts fan....hope it gets straightened out soon.
Mistwraith sighting report My husband was at Barnes and Noble the other day and he said they had it. Also my local library system has at least the first few books on order (I checked out of curiosity because I was thinking about buying a copy and donating it... after all, that's how I got into the series!) Just a heads up
Konran - thanks so much for the update. Where are you located?
Yep. Saw it at B&N over the weekend here in Montgomery County, Md., too, and in the new releases section, no less.
New Releases? Oh, now that is REALLY GOOD NEWS!!
Thank you for noticing that.
It indicates a certain amount of effort and commitment on the publisher's part. Cool.
Janny - I'm in Portland, OR
You're quite welcome, Madam Talespinner. A good start for it, perhaps?
Has anyone else received notices about delays in getting CotM, SoM, and WoV from Amazon? I placed my order on the 27th of April, and got a notice today that it's going to be late May for CotM and WoV before they ship and mid-June for SoM.
Hi Alan - are you a new reader?
"Technically" the releases for these books in the USA was meant to be: May, Curse of the Mistwraith, June, Ships of Merior, July, Warhost of Vastmark, but for some reason, Amazon US decided to ship them all straight off - so I am very curious, and pleased, to be kept up to date on what is happening.
Sometimes readers see problems in the distribution chain first, and it really helps a lot if I can take them straight to the top.
Meantime, you do have my sympathy! Keep me apprised.
Just checked Amazon.ca again, and no new listings. The old publication of Curse of the Mistwraith is mis-named: "Curse of the Mistrait". I guess they lost the "h". No new listings for CotMW, SoM, or WoV.
No, not a new reader. I primarily lurk here, though and have for quite some time. Yeah, it had a ship date for me of May 11th since I placed order and then it changed to late May/Mid-June in separate shipments when I got the update notice.
Hi Alan - I thought I'd seen you before, but didn't want to presume, in case someone else popped in with the same name.
Interesting, hmmm, with all the ship now/ship later dithering...do keep me apprised. Let's just hope, if they are deciding to ship early, that all the loop de loop is caused by demand...if they're underestimating how many they need - GOOD!
If the pauses don't stop, or they're not waking up to the numbers - or - if there's a glitch, I want to check into it.
Janny - one thing that might/might not be an issue; I ordered Ships and Warhost from Amazon (having purchased Curse at B&N); they shipped what they said (and the packing slip said) was both books, but I ended up with two copies of Warhost. Now, these do appear to be the UK editions and there are stickers with US pricing and all... who is affixing those stickers? Harper, a distribution center or the end-point seller (in this case, Amazon)? These two copies of Warhost I received from Amazon each has a different sticker (so, a different barcode and such). I presume one of them has the sticker intended for Ships. Maybe that is part of the distribution problem? Amazon assures me they will send the correct book but there is a "delay" now... how I wish I could kick my love/hate relationship with Amazon....
Well, they've charged me for Curse and Warhost, but say that Ships will take a while, and I haven't been charged for it as of yet. I'll keep you updated if I have any further issues.
Theresa - I will check into the fact the books were not stickered, correctly.
The editions will be the same, all across...though probably when they print new ones, they'll have the pricing added on properly....
The "delay" - I will make sure they are not out of stock at the publisher's.
Grand Conspiracy and Peril's Gate up on amazon, they have listed release dates of 1 Nov, and 1 Jan respectively
also i got all 3 from amazon, and the all have the tickers stickers, CotMW and WoV shipped very quickly at the beginning of April, SoM shipped almost at the end of April but i did get the correct book
i think that someone else here also mentioned they got WoV insted of SoM.
Or Raifman - thanks for the listing report, and letting me know you got the correct titles. I've looked into the mis-stickering bit. Awaiting a report back, on that.
This is curious....IS there a listing for Fugitive Prince??? That would be Sept or Oct....should be, anyway...and what about Traitor's Knot and Stormed Fortress - or are they going to space them out?
Do I hate being a mushroom or what - I'll query to see...meantime, if Fugitive Prince is NOT listed - that needs fix, fast! Can't be out of order!!!
Amazon does list Fugitive Prince, as I have it on my wishlist, with the UK cover and all.
fugitive prince has been listed on amazon for quite a while as a Sep 1 release
nothing on Traitor's Knot and Stormed Fortress
they seem to be spacing them out to one every 2 months after fugitive prince, so nothing listed for october or december
The date on FP is Sept 1 though you really, really have to dig to find it. Doing a search on Fugitive Prince finds the US edition that they indicate they have 5 of with more on the way.
no digging needed just search in the advanced search for Janny Wurts and sort by date you can see all of them:
also the link for FP:
here are the links to all the ones they have so far on amazon:
Curse of the Mistwraith:
Ships of Merior:
Warhost of Vastmark:
To Ride Hell's Chasm:
