I recently got an email from them saying that they now have signed copies, in case I wanted to reorder. So, if you have any issues with your MP order (they look sold out online), try Strand. i haven't read the book yet, but reviews have been pretty brutal. Also, De Palma's signature is pretty rough. Hard to tell it's even him. I don't know what I was expecting, but.. just FYI.
    Thanks. I did get a reply from TMB today apologizing for not sending the book, and they said they would send it out immediately. I guess I'll read it before checking the reviews

      The reviews scared me away; I skipped this one.

      Interestingly, the Paperback Warrior podcast from yesterday (9/7) focuses on Hard Case Crime, and Tom, one of the duo, indicated that while he likes their editorial choices for vintage reprints, he feels their choices for their modern, original fiction releases leaves a lot to be desired. I'd be hardpressed to disagree.
