Why??? I can't understand why sometimes we get books at the same time as 
the rest of the world (remember that glorious occasion Merlin's Conspiracy 
came out here first?) but other times have to wait as though the books are

And two bookstores are still telling me September - I guess their databases 
aren't being updated.
