Books showing as out of print or backordered
« on: February 01, 2010, 12:28:14 PM »
A couple of weeks ago I went to my local bookstore and tried to order both a Fantasy Craft and a Spycraft book.  At the time, they told me that the Spycraft book was out of print but that the pocket edition was available, so I ordered that instead.

I went back in a checked on the status of my order a couple of days ago and found out that the FC and SC pocket book were both on back order.

Are there any current known issues on the Crafty/Mongoose end concerning the availability of any of these books?

Odd. All titles are still available through the established channel. I'll look into it and post when I have news.

If it'll help, I can explain the situation to them and ask which distributor they are using.

It is quite likely that the local bookstore is ordering through Ingram - which is very bad about restocking RPGs.

I don't know how the story ends...
But I do know what happens next.

Yes please. All the information you can gather on the ground would be most helpful. Send it to me in a PM. There's no need to air any retailer/distributor/customer/etc.'s affairs on a public board.
