Second EGS Book?

Postby fms on Sun Aug 17, 2008 4:54 am

I don't know if it got sold out or what happened?

The first book is still for sale, I wanted to get the second as well.

Also, does anyone know when the third volume is going to come out?

Heh, I just had a thread asking about more books. Long story short, they're a major hassle for Dan, especially since he's thinking about changing formats for whenever he does it. Just do like me, print out all the comics and put them in a binder.


As for book 2, dunno. Had mine for awhile.

Book 2 being sold out is news to me. Where did you look?

I'd get them if I could add them to my next Amazon order, but they're always out of the first book and the second one isn't even listed, where else is there to get it in the UK?

I got mine thru the Keenspot store. Try that. Should be a link somewhere around here, I know there's one at the main EGS site.

In Germany it was the same, the first book was sold, the second wasn't even listed, my guess is that it has nothing to do with being sold out but with distribution (or lack thereof). I think you only get it through Keenstore, like eriknimblehands said.

And it works well. The book arrived just a few days after ordering at my door. :D
Then it had to wait for 3 weeks until I got home again :okthen:

Not long at all. Keenspot's very efficient. I bought both books for myself, arrived really quickly. Bought a couple for Dasteroad too, she got hers pretty soon and she's in Italy.

Eh, it varies. I ordered mine just a month ago and it hasn't arrived yet, but I haven't lost faith. Anyway my main reason for buying the books was supporting Dan, I can deal with having to do archive trawling till they arrive.

I was going to suggest that Dan jump to Plan 9, but they seem to have ceased operations. Drat.

Who publishes the books again?

Edit: I withdraw that question. I was at Barnes and Noble earlier today (which I hate, because they don't have a Borders Title Sleuth-esque system) and they didn't have either book.

Withdrawn or not: as far as I can tell, Keen publishes them and they aren't in bookstores.
