If I did my math correctly I believe there are roughly 4 extra copies of Head Full of Ghosts, so if anyone missed out and wants one, shoot me an email.
    Any idea when you'll be shipping the ARC grab bag? thanks.

    I haven't read the third yet, but will probably take it on after I finish The Expanse series.
    I had to buy all three of these aftermarket because I wasn't around when they were on sale directly. Thanks to Dan (and Roy at Bad Moon Books) for matching my number. I can't wait to complete the set. I also have UK and US firsts of all three books. I like this series!
    I received both book one and two in grab bags (both are PC copies.) I recently purchased the third book since I have the first two. The story intrigues me but without getting the grab bag copies I probably would not have jumped in.

    I generally rad everyday and have both a physical book and an audio book going. These will be read as physical books and the going will be slower. If the story is grabbing me pushing through them will not be an issue. Is the story lags and may break them up.

    It is going to be a while before I get to these but my plan would be to read them consecutively.

    You are correct about the time jump. I remember loving the 1st book and strongly liking the 2nd & 3rd books. My main gripe really was the length of time between the books being published as each book was heavy on characters/details essentially forcing re-read the previous books before you could really move onto the current book. Will be cool to read them straight through to see how it might alter my perception of these books

    Great wine and fun night BTW.

    I think we have 4 or 5 misc small quantity other publisher's titles in the queue to ship. The plan is for Dan F. (who's part time) to work on those while Zach is working on the bigger projects and in between shipping the day to day orders. Brother is probably at the top of that other publisher's list. The Little Black book is probably at the bottom, because it's the most complex and will take the most amount of time. Either way probably the week after next for the Little book at the latest and most likely next week for Brother.
    Sounds good. Thanks for the update.

    Next on the shipping list are some lettered editions people have been waiting for. Then we'll be into City of Mirrors next week.
