So it really does exist? Like Philip, I've had trouble tracking down a 
copy. Oxford's Waterstones initially tried to sell me a copy of Tim 
Wynne-Jones's Survival Game, then couldn't spell Wynne, then found no 
mention of the DWJ book on any of their computer systems. Borders said 
it would take about two months to get it from the USA, and I should try 
Amazon. Blackwells had a very good assistant who not only had heard of 
DWJ but could spell her name, knew what sort of books she writes, and 
which publisher has been usual in recent years, but found that their 
computer systems showed The Game wouldn't be published until November. 
And Oxford's supposed to be good for bookshops!

Given how DWJ things can come true, there isn't anything in The Game 
about books mysteriously not existing, or publishing time warps, is there?

(I guess I'll order it from Amazon.co.uk after all...)
