Update #46

We Have a Shipping Date!

3 comments

Hey everyone!

The last few weeks have been a pretty crazy time, what with San Diego Comic-Con and the reveal of a very exciting secret project with Phil Plait and Jess Fink. But we have an exciting thing to announce--a timeline for shipment for the books!

We finalized everything with the printers a few weeks ago, and they've informed us that the books will be shipped out to our warehouse on August 13. Shortly after they arrive at the warehouse a week or so later, Zach will head down to Austin to sign things. Around this time (late August, for those of you keeping track), we'll send out surveys to those of you who haven't received them yet to get updated addresses. If all goes well, the books will be able to start shipping by the beginning of September. Once the Kickstarter orders have shipped, the books will also be made available on Amazon, the Breadpig and SMBC online stores, and in bookstores everywhere.

      Any updates. It is now 9/10 was hoping to have the book by now.

      Is there any way to have shipping delayed? It sounds like they're being sent out right around the time I leave for Europe for two weeks...(for science of course!)

      Nice! The ship time is coordinated with the Perseids.
