Delayed, delayed and delayed again... Nov 4, 2007
It's a pity that this site doesn't use realtime update for this book is still in the publishing process and according to a note i've received from the author (J.Y.MARY) beginning of September, it will perhaps be ready between Feb and june 2008, but not quite sure.
It was supposed to be available long time ago (dec 2006) but have been delayed several times and this site knows all this... So, why still set out a book as a unique collector one (due to the price !!!! more than 4 times the normal one) if this book ISN'T YET EVEN PRINTED in France ?
Final Volume- HAS NOT BEEN PUBLISHED YET Jul 31, 2006
Publication of this book was delayed, just like some of the others in this set. The publisher lists it as being published in Jan/Feb 2007 and that is why this site is not able to deliver it at this time. Although they have been informed months ago, they still have not updated this site.
I know I'll like it if it ever arrives Jun 11, 2006
Ordered this book six weeks ago and still hasn't shipped. this site says it usually ships in 1-3 weeks. This is actually my 2nd attempt to order it. I tried about four months ago and that order was eventually cancelled by this site. The book remained as available on their site so I tried agaain in late April, still waiting. I have volumes 1 and 3 of this series they are fantastic.
