If they get repeated comments, they might do something about it.
    Great idea!

That large panel truck looks very suspicious". The Sgt. leans forward to look past the young cop and spies Simon in the driver's seat. The Sgt. then tells the rookie, "Not at all. That's just Simon on his way to Waterstones to pick up the latest King book for all those bloody Yanks!" The Sgt. rolls his eyes and whispers under his breath, "Rookies."

    Well played, Brian!

    Yes, I received an email confirmation from Waterstones right after placing my order.

    I submitted a shipping comment using the link Simon provided. I hope you all do, too.

    Did you check your Junk mail folder? I received pretty quickly when I placed my order, but I've had other sites where the confirmation email ends up filtered into Junk (sometimes it's even from a site I've ordered from multiple times before and never have an issue later on, even)

    I got a copy and a confirmation email.
    Captain, Road Prison 36 : What we've got here is... failure to communicate. Some men you just can't reach. So you get what we had here last week, which is the way he wants it... well, he gets it. I don't like it any more than you men.

    Dragline : Nothin'. A handful of nothin'. You stupid mullet head. He beat you with nothin'. Just like today when he kept comin' back at me - with nothin'.

    I also received a confirmation E-mail and per Simon's advice asked them to wrap it real nice!
    I'm sure if there is intelligent life somewhere out there in the universe, they are wise enough to stay away from us.

    I submitted a ticket as well to have them send the book in a padded box. Hell I'm paying 250GBP plus 12 for shipping least they can do is protect the damn thing in more than a mailer.

    What's wrong with "Availability at time of order: Awaiting publication"?

    Just means the book isn't available today when I ordered.

    If you're only paying 12 for shipping to the US, I don't see them sending it to you in anything but a standard parcel envelope.

    The cost of shipping a box containing a 700 page book through Royal Mail is at least three times as much.

    Just saying that it states that the book may NOT have been available at the time you ordered.

    Of course it isn't available yet. It hasn't been produced yet (or if it has, it isn't ready for shipping until after 9/26/2017).

    Nothing to worry about. The major worry is the potential of damage.

    I used the contact link listed upthread. It will be interesting to hear what if any responses we receive.

    I said:

    I ordered the signed limited today. In the past, Waterstones shipping of books to the USA often were inadequately packaged, resulting in damage to the book. Since there are only 250 of the books, there likely won't be any to replace damaged copies.
    Please pack mine in a fashion that will insure it arrives safely.
    I'm more than willing to pay extra for robust packaging.

    Best,

    Jerome *****

    What don't you understand about that there are 250 books and you were order #251?

    I'll let you all know how mine is packed. My shipping was free within the UK so they'll probably just stick a stamp on the slipcase
