Fantasy Craft Physical Books Ship Date
« on: September 04, 2009, 04:34:43 PM »
Hey, have the physical copies of Fantacy Craft shipped yet from Mongoose, to your knowledge?  I have the PDF, but always like physical copies as well.

I purchased mine August 13th from Mongoose, but still haven't seen it.  They list it as 'On Sale Now', but Amazon lists a street date for it of October 28th, so I'm all confused.

I have sent an e-mail to Mongoose, letting them know I'm waiting for my book and would like an update.  Just wondered if anyone else knew what was up.

In short, yes they have.
At least we europeans have the book.

Myself and 4 other Aussies have our copies, all arrived this week.  So at least some have been.  Its possible shipping might be based on where you're from, as in how they have to get it in your country.  Mine was air-mailed.

The book should be available in print everywhere now, so if you're still having trouble finding or ordering it, please let us know. (When you do, also tell us where and how you tried to get it, preferably with contact info for the store or source - send it privately so you don't out anyone).

The Amazon street date is unfortunate but now unavoidable. We offered it to them sooner.  >:(

No street date appears on the Amazon site.

On a tangential note, I submitted a review to Amazon. It should be up in a couple days.

It's down under product details...

Publisher: Mongoose Publishing (October 28, 2009)

It's also patently false, but who are we - the publishers - to argue?  :P

Awesome! Definitely post to the Reviews forum or the Fantasy Craft reviews thread when it goes live. We can't be everywhere and frequently miss new reviews unless someone points them out.

I think that might be because it is now available through a seller.

Seems that most of the recent Mongoose publications (Fantasy Craft, Judge Dredd, Earthdawn Companions) all have release dates sometime in October on Amazon.com... ::)  Thankfully for those of us here in the US, there are some excellent online retailers offering the books at excellent prices with great service (Noble Knight Games, TheWarStore, FRP Games).

It seems that all these stores have run out. Victims of your own success, heh? But I've got many fellow players that haven't had a chance to grab a copy yet. Would you care to ship some books to these sellers? In advance, thanks a lot.  ::)

Well in the UK at least Travelling Man in Leeds had a copy when I was in on last week.
Sadly I've yet to pick up a physical copy as my budget is in minus numbers, probably until post-christmas now.

I ordered mine about two weeks ago from Mongoose, haven't seen it yet. Of course, I had some other stuff there as well (WoF, Shadow Play), and I'm not up to date on their printing arrangements (or the UK postal situation). Chomping at the bit to get it, though.

Did you email them about it? If so, can you drop me a line with their reply?
