A very limited number of signed copies will be released and can be pre-ordered from selected bookshops and record shops, from 9am on Friday 20th January (UK only).
NME state Waterstones and Rough Trade will be two of the bookshops.
Theyve taken it down, i looked on their 25 minutes ago, they were selling signed books on its own for £10.99 too!
It's ridiculous the same person on 2 separate e bay accounts in Florida USA has 11 copies for sale @ $400 !!
Some of us didn't even get one !
I missed out woke up about an hour to late i only wanted to get 1 ,hopefully can get lucky and catch a restock if there is one. I could never understand how these ebayers have stuff up literally with in 5 minutes after they pre ordered it and be able to sell it for the prices they do with out even having the item in hand. To each their own I guess lol
Maybe Complain to Waterstones - and send them ebay links - they are in Florida USA !
e mail - firstname.lastname@example.org
I just did - if enough people complain they may cancel their orders and free up several copies!
Will do! Ty for email address. Hopefully Waterstones does the right thing
I doubt it - I just had an e mail from them saying they wouldn't have been ordered from them....then i replied saying the ebay reseller has a photo of the Waterstones order / receipt......
Apparently they e mailed all Waterstones Plus members who had bought similar items in the past.... with a link to the signed book - i replied to him funny that I'm a plus member and bought Kate Bush Books from them recently and didn't receive any e mail!
Yes I’m a plus member who bought the last one from them and no link either
They state that the signed run totals 500 copies, so hopefully that resolves the earlier queries.
I was actually fortunate enough to speak with someone at Faber who confirmed which stores had been given signed pre-orders of this book - bleep were the final one to list their copies, so all should be gone now.
edit: sold out, that was really quick :0
For anyone wondering, here was my contact with Faber…
”It’s up to individual bookshops how they manage and promote their stock, so we don’t have a list of which shops have signed copies available for pre-order. There will be a very limited number of copies available from Friday 20 January. Bookshops with available copies will be promoting these on their own channels.
However, we do have a list of record stores which have taken a small number of copies. These will be going on sale anytime from 9am on Friday 20 January.
World of Echo
Drift Records Totnes
Resident Records Brighton
Jumbo Records Leeds
It is interesting to me that they hadn’t mentioned Waterstones, but I would imagine that this is nothing to worry about given NME referenced them in their article which was presumably modelled from some form of direct press release.
The wording on that sounds like they just gave you a list of record stores, and not bookshops. I wonder if we will see more of these pop up around the release date at UK bookstores.
Keep an eye on Blackwell's -- they've been pretty good about getting signed editions up in the past. Nothing up right now on the regular edition page (listed below), but it may be worth checking later on.
