    I have a US and a UK edition on the way. Hopefully it survives the trip from Waterstones

    Thanks for the instructions. I am not very competent with technology unfortunately, I will give it a go tomorrow.

    There are two ways to post photos. Either upload the photo to a web site that hosts photos and link to the photo with the icon, or you can upload to the site server in the Gallery.

    To upload to the site server: Click Gallery. From the upper right of the menu on top of the new page click Upload Photos. Click the Browse button. Navigate to the photo on your hard drive and select it. Repeat for each photo. Click Open. Wait for the photo[s] to upload. When it's complete you will be taken back to your gallery.

    You have three picture posting options. You can post the thumbnail, the medium sized image below the thumbnail, or you can click on the medium sized image and another window will open with a full sized image. Right click the image you want. Select Copy Image Location, then click the button in the thread you want and paste the image location in the box. Click OK.

    Thanks to Br!an for the original instructions.

    I wonder if Sub Press will do a signed/limited of RP2, given that they did one of RP1 (which I've not been able to snag at a decent price...yet).

    I don't suppose anyone has a spare Waterstones signed RP1 and RP2 they'd like to sell? Thanks.

    It’s getting not so great reviews. But I’ve stopped paying attention till I get to read it.

    I found ARMADA to be as such, so am keeping my RP2 expectations in check, though I really did enjoy RP1 — a book that the above reviewer called “a fluke,” a one-hit wonder. Will be interested to hear the consensus here on RP2.

    My wife and will start reading it soon - so I'll be interested in her take. I asked my son if he wanted to read that together next - we are finishing The Restaurant at the end of the galaxy - but he wants Hollowpox next (book 3 in a series we've been reading) - but I won't judge RP2 on his lack of desire to read it (he is 12) - so will weigh in some more once it is read

    Believe the un-hype.
    RP1 was 5/5 and armada was 2/5 for me. I rate RP2 - 3/5 and I'm generous because I love part 1 and it's characters, BUT
    in general it's not so good. I wish it was not written.
    - too much woke/gender which was unnecessary and forced.
    - some of the quests were boring as hell (too much padding) and I knew all the references (so imagine someone who don't).
    - there were some nice plot points/directions.
    Overall it was semi-entertaining, but unnecessary sequel.

    I’m about 30% in and disagree with the reviews that it’s awful. It’s a fun read. The main problems are that the narrative jumps back and forth between “present” and “past” to give exposition dumps, which destroys the pacing. And there’s a bit too much “wow, cool!” wealth/fame tech geek fantasy wish fulfillment going on. But the ideas are fun, I care about the characters, and I want to know what happens next. Good premise, execution lacking.

    Just finished reading it. I would also give it 3/5. Too similar to RP1 for my liking but not a bad read.

    Those passages of text he features in his video are enough for me to avoid the book altogether.

    It really is!
    The work is being done by Rich Tong and Ludlow Bookbinders, the same people who bound Stardust for Lyra's Books (Rich Tong is Lyra's!). No doubt it will be amazing.
