      @ Salvador Bernadó Sala
      Great that you got your book in the meantime! It's worse here: the English postal service claimed that my mailing address doesn't exist. If they would have sent it to a wrong address then I could have worked on the problem but what should I do if they are unable to deliver to a correct address?

      @ Eddy, Mark
      I also didn't get any reaction from Kevin, contacted him through e-mail. Very disappointing.

      Although I thought I wouldn't see the book, I must confirm that I received it today.
      I hope everybody can get it at the end, because the book it's worth it.

      Kevin, my reward has still not arrived in Australia yet.

      A further update would be greatly appreciated.

      Creator Salvador Bernadó Sala on October 8, 2013

      @ Markus Zwinger, I haven't received mine either.
      The first time it was sent to a wrong address that I don't know whether they got from.
      It seems the book has been sent again but the tracking number I go only gives me an error every time I want to consult it.
      What I don't understand is that is the warehouse is in England and I live in Spain, why the tracking number is from the Netherlands post service.
      I don't think I'll never get the book.

      Creator Eddy Sugihartono on September 17, 2013

      May i know the tracking code that i've been asking for few times since last week??? I've email you, KS message you but no reply..

      I know your book will be awesome but the attitude is not right.. Why you cannot answer my message so that i had to wait a week to get the answer? And i've asking many times in this page but no response. If you cannot do it your self, you should hire somebody else to handle customer care. Please don't use that excuse for rightful your mistake..

      Eddy

      Your parcel is already on its way to you! It went out last week. There has been a huge undertaking with many many complications sending out 1800 copies. Many other successful Kickstarter backers have faced similar dilemmas trying fulfill a huge number orders when you are a lone operator ( while also holding down other jobs etc). My backers have been great and all said it was worth the wait. I hope you feel the same.

      Please let me know when the goodies arrive.

    13. Menokia.small

      Creator Eddy Sugihartono on September 16, 2013

      Did you already SAID that YOU WILL SEND THOSE YOUR SELF on PREVIOUS UPDATE?????????? WHY YOU SEND THE PARCEL THIS WEEK?????????

      Here is I quote:
      "The Final 150 copies for our backers in Asia and South America are in my living room ready to roll. These were originally to be sent from the UK warehouse. However, when the parcels were being prepared for shipping from the UK last week, I was informed the delivery fees would be up to $2000 more that if we sent them ourselves from the US. Hence a change of plans and a further delay for you...I am very sorry about this! "

      THAT UPDATE IS ON JULY 15th!!!!!!!!!!!! IT's BEEN TWO MONTHS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      REALLY you are bad creator! Not fulfilling ur own promise, not replying message, and lack of care!
      This is the last time i will buy your book!

    14. Kal-sketch-web.small

      Creator Kevin Kallaugher on September 14, 2013

      Greetings everyone

      Well, finally the last parcels of books are leaving this week. Sadly for a group of backers in Southern Asia the London warehouse put their orders (that were placed in early August) on hold due to the cost of shipping (All orders over $50 shipping were put automatically on hold). I have decided to ship those parcels myself from Baltimore to ensure delivery.Hopefully these customers will get their books very soon! Please let us know when they arrive. The reviews of the book have been fantastic. Let us know your thoughts

      Best

      And a third update: I called customs a second time (persistence pays off it seems) after a first call rendered no results. This time a different person immediately agreed that they made a mistake and they will reimburse me. Angry no more! Now ready to indulge in the actual contents of the book.

    34. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Boris Kraft on July 30, 2013

      And to add detail: my pledge said "25$ plus 15$ for shipping." The declared value was 93$, which as others reported is the amount they use to calculate the tax.

    35. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Boris Kraft on July 30, 2013

      Just received my book in Switzerland. Unfortunately, customs declaration was "Hard Case Daggers Drawn" which means they couldn't figure out it was a book, which meant I had to pay about $30 in taxes. You know, what is so hard about writing "book" in the description of goods declaration, when what you send is actually a book? I am rather angry about that.

      Creator Kevin Kallaugher on July 15, 2013

      To My Canadien backers... I was shocked and saddened to hear that some of you were socked with extra delivery fees. I investigated to learn this is a UPS/Canadien issue. I am so sorry to hear about this. Granted to say... I will not being using UPS to delivery to Canada in the future.

    41. Kal-sketch-web.small

      Creator Kevin Kallaugher on July 15, 2013

      For my courageous backers still waiting for their special copy of Daggers Drawn…

      Due to customs and shipping delays, the delivery to the UK warehouse didn’t clear our books for fulfillment until July 7. Fortunately, we sent out several hundred copies early last week and backers in the UK and Europe can expect their copies soon. Happily, any future orders will now be fulfilled from the warehouses in the US and UK within days of ordering.

      The Final 150 copies for our backers in Asia and South America are in my living room ready to roll. These were originally to be sent from the UK warehouse. However, when the parcels were being prepared for shipping from the UK last week, I was informed the delivery fees would be up to $2000 more that if we sent them ourselves from the US. Hence a change of plans and a further delay for you...I am very sorry about this!

      This is particularly frustrating as had we known this earlier, we would have shipped these books from the US weeks ago.

      In order to hasten the delivery to you, I spent the weekend assembling the orders myself here at home for shipment this week! Please accept my apologies and gratitude for your stoic patience. Please let me know when the book(s) arrive.

      Once again I am extremely grateful to all the backers for your support. The book will soon be on sale to the general public through The Economist. Each copy will bear your name. Hopefully your name will be spread far and wide over the weeks and months ahead.
