I gave Dymocks a call and they have plenty of copies in stock here, so it 
seems strange New Zealand won't have it for 3 months. But as Hallie said, 
why try to understand the way of publishers?
If Dymocks can't get it across for you, I'm happy to buy a copy and post it 
- it'll be heaps cheaper than getting it from the UK and our exchange rate 
is better too. Otherwise, I think the independent bookstore I got it at, 
Pulp Fiction, send books to NZ.
