    Actually the postage may even go up. 4 books can be more than 3 times expensive as 2 books and such. Books are heavy and quickly hit shipment thresholds for weight and size. You could get 1-3 in a letter category (book 5 alone probably pushes it), but the whole set of nine might require a fairly expensive box. All depending on where you are.

    Sadly many postal services are recouping costs incurred by packages delivered from elsewhere with high prices on outgoing mail. Any place with a lot of incoming vs outgoing is gonna be shafted by the international postalsystem.

    The price you see listed is ofc on the books themselves which does not include shipping.

    Oh, definitely. The books are scheduled to be done printing at the end of July, so there's plenty of time for them to get through the distribution chain by then.

    The GenCon situation is a little tight because it's the first weekend in August and there are all sorts of deadlines for when the truck going to Indianapolis from the warehouse is leaving, but arriving on time through the other channels is essentially certain at this point.

    Since I will be at GenCon, I asked ookoodook "I was wondering if I could order multiple other books from you and pick them all up, or just the one?" and the answer was YES.

    You can order all the books and pick them all up at gencon.

    You didn't answer my question about getting a discount because I plan to order ALL the books (all 9), so I assume this is not available. However, although I cannot be in Indianapolis, I work in Philly, which is where you are, so if you have some personally in stock maybe I can save on postage if I come to pick them up?

    There is no discount for ordering all 9 books, and no, you cannot pick them up from me personally.

    OK, I'll just go to the site and order the regular way then, after the end of the month. Thanks!

    I read the print books first, but even if I didn't I'd say the extra content is totally worth it as well.

    Update: The books shipped from the printer last night, as scheduled. That means that they are 100% on time, and we won't even need to do any fancy tricks to get them to GenCon. They'll just be there.

    We'll probably be cutting off GenCon pre-orders in the next day or two, so the people working the Ookoodook booth know how many copies to set aside for pre-order pick-up.

    Pre-order shipping started today, so people should be getting notices very soon. Tonight or tomorrow, I would imagine, especially since I think the team wants to get them all out the door before they leave for GenCon.

    Is there a chance that the release date for the PDF will get moved up a couple of days, with physical book shipping getting underway already, or are we still expecting a mid-August release there?

    Have yet to get mine, but I have no problem waiting for the hard copy to come in the mail while reading the PDF version.

    I've also got the shipping notice. Of course, it will take some time to reach Germany and then I'll probably have to get it from the customs office, so the PDF may still be faster.

    Got my shipping notice in the wee hours of the morning!

    I didn't see a time estimate in the email, though. Do any fellow Americans have any idea how long these books take to arrive? I've ordered books before, but it's been years since I did so, so... no idea how long I should expect to wait.

    (Rich, if you read this, don't take this as a request for more information from you - you have enough on your plate already! I'm just asking fellow fans.)

    Not offhand, but USPS has always been ridiculously fast for me. The keep in mind, the shipping labels have been generated, but nothing's gone out yet, so don't expect anything until they actually make the USPS drop. Once that hits, though, I'd expect a few days.

    I assume it's based on when you ordered and how far down you are in the queue, but I could be wrong about that.

    I am also waiting, but I am international so I'm not worried yet.

    I did order within 2 hours after the Giant put up this thread, so the when doesn't matter probably.
