That's only just because it's brand new. It takes a little time to appear. If you check Amazon.com you'll see that it is available there.

Just to let you know that the book is on Amazon now, and has been for some weeks. Also Alan Kent has been doing a good job getting it into bookstores around the Duchy, so you should be able to find it there as well.

Say, Capten, did you ever get a copy?

Alan tells me he's working on another similar book. :-)
