No! *grumble*

Dymocks and Angus & Robertson, which are the two big bookshop chains here
have web based shops.  But by the time anything is listed on there it's in
the bookshop up the street anyway.

Everyone who has mentioned it to me has loved it!  Though come to think of
it, most of them were computer geeks...  I'm getting tempted to lash out on
the trade paperback.  Even though trade paperbacks are disgusting!
