I'd pre-ordered from the BookDepository and was starting to worry when the publishing date changed three times.
Those preview pages look great. Looking forward to December.

Hey Luca!  I hope things are well!  I have a quick question - I pre-ordered this through Amazon, and it has a ship date of December 5, but it still hasn't shipped yet.  Any word on when this will be released?  I'm SUPER looking forward to this book.

Hey Major,

Looks fantastic.  I have had one on pre-order through Amazon since it was announced.  I think i get it in November some time.

I also had mine on pre-order since day 1 and I just got another notice that it will be later this month.

Hello guys,
few things. I post here to not open another thread on General Marketplace section. Feel free to move these infos if you think it's necessary..

I've just received an email from DSP sales manager and it seems wait is close to be over.
Paperback versions are already landed and they're shipping them out (I don't know about Amazon anyway), but for hard-cover version, a little bit more patience is necessary.
In addiction, they decided to make a "Fan art Abakan challenge" on DSP Facebook page:
http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=317430731603453&set=a.145073452172516.25386.144052105607984&type=1&ref=nf
I know it's a "design" and illustration contest, but I know also that here there are guys who could take the challenge
I'd love people will join it!

Second news is a 40% special Chrismas discount on 3 brand new books, ABAKAN 2288, Sparth's STRUCTURA 2 and Stephane Martiniere's VELOCITY
always in theyr Facebook page:

Thanks for reading!
Luca

(i've received more news, so I deleted last post  ;) )

My copy was delivered yesterday, 05th January from the bookdepository.

I'm very impressed on the first browse through. Well printed with great picture and fascinating text.
It is going to be an inspirational reference.

Hello guys
everyone had ordered it or has already received or is going to receive.
I mean paperback version, the hard cover will be out next month I believe

My copy was delivered yesterday, 05th January from the bookdepository.

Thanks so much razide for the feedback.
I'm very curious to know how people's thoughts are watching/reading it.
The story (and all the rest actually) were a challenge, so I'm very happy you liked that!

Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts

Luca

I was out of the country until Tuesday the 3rd, got back,and after a painful 73hr 4 day work week,had the joy of coming home Friday to find
my copy the Ian McQue's Remora from Industria Mechanika,and Kallamity's ABAKAN when I walked through the door!!
 :yeah: :drool:

ABAKAN is soooooo amazing!!! Even better than I imagined! I feel real emotion when I read this story and history, and it gives me a level of real interest that I don't get from many books.
Timeless piece of work. The book is really well put together, and I and I'm in awe of the world creation. I believe how it looks. It's even an inspiration for me to keep going with my career projects and dreams.
Zampri, this is masterpiece quality my friend.
Thanks.

I also need another Briegel.  ^_^
