I have an interesting situation with my Amazon pre-order of the upcoming Lyrics book: the price quoted is now £81 (wow) but when I pre-ordered it was only £23...and Amazon claim to always honour the pre-order price. So I could be on for a bargain. Anyone else order when the pre-order price was low?

Yes, I ordered it for £30.00 last month. Isis Magazine are still offering it at £28. Euro 35. & USA $39. Better be quick though.

So that's Amazon who screw authors, avoid taxes and have contributed to the demise of independent bookshops?
Feck them, and the fools who use them.

I've just ordered for 38 euros from www.amazon.de - 2 issues - I hope it's not a german language edition, and secondly its showing as being published in October 2015....

It's supposedly the hardback version, though I'm not at all convinced they're going to deliver....

The original plan for the annotated lyrics book seems to have been changed. There's a thread about here -

viewtopic.php?f=6&t=80899#p1502073

And there was an article on the Expecting Rain front page yesterday.
