Fear not Antiriad2097, they're all hardcovers with dust jackets! I've had exactly 250 copies made, and if they all sell out within the next couple of months then I may consider a second printing in the summer, but they'd definitely be paperbacks, so the 250 hardcovers from this first print run (one of which is heading your way!) will forever remain a limited edition of just 250. :)

Looking good. Any idea of an ETA for getting that lot shipped? No pressure, I understand it's a bit of an onerous task, just curious as I'm keen to get reading. For some reason this one has me more excited than many of the books I've bought.

No worries! I think yours was dispatched yesterday (managed to get the first 50-ish packed and out the door before running out of puff!) and the rest of the UK-bound books were sent today. There are about a dozen left to post out now, all of which are heading overseas, and they'll be on their way tomorrow afternoon. Looking forward to seeing a few reviews (and maybe an unboxing or two!) ;)

Happy to report that sales of the new book are ticking along nicely! Only around 130 copies left now, and with an interview feature set to appear in Retro Gamer this week, hopefully a few more will find themselves being snapped up over the coming days. I'm definitely going to keep the original hardcover print run at 250, so everyone who invests in a copy can rest assured their edition will remain an extremely limited one. Forever. But I might have a crack at crowd-funding a paperback reprint in the summer.

Here's an enthusiastic unboxing video:

... and here's a nice review of The Book of the Game of the Film from a couple of days ago:

Reception has been really good so far, although I'd like to see a few more actual reviews out there!
