Feel free to start a new thread.
That would be the The Arrival of Humanity on Athera thread in General Discussion Sleo.
OK, thanks guys. I started a new thread, then found the original discussion via Annette and copied and pasted my posts there.
My copy has been, as the youngster who served me at the local bookstore put it, "orderfied". Nov 1st, apparently... Prompting the other readers I know locally to do likewise if they can.
...Looks like my October vacation will be spent doing the annual series re-read. Looking forward to this one...
The Kindle version of the book has appeared on Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk.
