We're doing our best to get them to dump dates that aren't settled - which at this point would be all of them (we haven't seen the newest galleys on SP and WoF and so even those books' dates aren't set). It's not as easy as just turning them off, though, so please bear with us.
Now this is real information that we can use: the Crafty Three are waiting on galleys. I thought that had in fact been in production, as we were hoping there would be a small shipment available at GenCon.
I think we would all be happier if we had more information like this. Not that I want to take valuable time from editing, but little snippets like this go a long way towards managing expectations. Let's see, the Crafty Three need to review the galleys, make changes, Mongoose needs to put the corrections into the press, crank out x copies, get them shipped stateside, go through the distribtion chain, etc. Nope, October First is probably not reasonable. See, I fell .... different already.
