    Received an advanced pre-order notice from SST yesterday. Anybody grabbing this book? Not sure if it is ok to list the title or not; so, I'm going to hold off (but I do see the book listed among the SubPress pre-orders so perhaps it's ok?). I'm grabbing it as I don't currently own a copy of this title and I have all of the other books by this author that SST has produced so far and want to keep my set intact.
    I get this author's SST books through Camelot so I'll be picking it up through them.

      I know that untracked Royal Mail to the US says they aim for 42 day delivery, but I've never experienced that before. Paul was going through some family things, so maybe the actual mailing of the parcels was delayed. I know other publishers have taken weeks after generating a tracking number (your order has shipped!) before actually mailing the item.
      My copies just arrived today after about 9 1/2 weeks . Seems to be the new normal. The postal service in the UK seems to be a huge mess the last couple of years.

        I sure hope that's not the new normal. I didn't order Cold in July, but I did order the Pallbearer's Club which shipped just prior to Cold, and I received that book in a just over a week, which is super-fast for an SST shipment as I live in Arizona and always select the standard non-tracking option. To hear that Cold is taking so much longer is a bit weird. Hopefully, it was just an issue with a specific pallet being scanned incorrectly or misplaced and not some new normal with Royal Mail, which does seem to have these issues pop-up from time to time.

          When I ordered the SST Sampler Pack 1 it arrived in less than a week (Maryland), so I'm assuming there was some problem with this specific batch of books in shipping. Unboxing vids for Cold in July were on YouTube shortly after the shipping notifications were sent, so it wasn't all copies that were affected.


          Did anyone here order the Sampler Packs? I got the first but skipped the second, curious what came in those. In the first set I received Big Lizard, The Bank, The Living Dead (PC) and Chasing the Boogeyman (PC).

            I passed on the sampler pack as I've ordered most of what SST has put out recently anyway. That being said, your haul is amazing. I purchased all of those titles except The Bank and would have loved to have seen the discount the sampler pack provided on them.

              I got that same sampler pack. Doubles on three of them, only new to me title was Big Lizard. Realized I should probably stop with the sampler pack grab bags (which is exactly what I said after the Thunderstorm bags earlier this year)

                Glad to hear it arrived! I still haven't seen anything but I always hope every time I open my mail box that there will be a little key in there for a package locker.

                  I was worried about the condition the book would arrive in after all this time, but the book and box were both fine. Hopefully everyone else still waiting receive their copies this week as well.
                  Awesome! Fingers are crossed mine arrives soon!

                    I'm going to send off an email and ask Paul if I should be worried. Never had anything take this long before so I'm hoping it's just an anomaly.
                    My books finally just showed up. Over 8 weeks- crazy. Hopefully yours- and anyone else's- do as well.

                        Today was my lucky day!

                        After approximately 68 days after shipping, my SST order arrived!

                        One less thing to worry about.

                              I just got another SST delivery on Monday - How to Sell a Haunted House and Donut Legion. Oddly enough, Paul sent these via FedEx and it took five days to arrive. Not sure if he upgraded my shipping based on last time, but it was nice to see them arrive so quickly.

                                That's great! Oddly, I've been seeing a bunch of folks showing off their DONUT LEGION's this past week or so- and I just got my shipping notice today; via Royal Economy, so, we'll see how long this one takes.  

                                *Edited To Add*: No sooner than when I hit "save" on the above post 5 mins ago and I hear my dog barking: the book is on the doorstep. Crazy.
