Overall, it's not.

However if you're a fan who's waiting, and who continually gets to focus on a date, which is then delayed, and then delayed again, that's about as disappointed as you're about to get as far as these things go.

Delaying it a few months puts it next to Erikson's Bonehunters, who *is * a big name and sells a book that would definitly be lumped in the same category.

But about the galleys, I can understand that. It's true that you need a couple of months to let ARC's go out to various reviewers, to get the necessary buzz. But October is stil very far off, wouldn't there be shiploads of time to still do that? If the galleys go out in June, July or even August, that would be more than enough time wouldn't it? Surely this doesn't require another delay. Unless of course TTT won't be finished by that time.

Isn't all of this also a lot to do with wanting the release dates to be the same in Canada, the US and the UK? Because it sounds a lot like it. It's why people suspect The Bonehunters was delayed as well, to allow the incredibly slow US market to catch up. The readers who got on the boat early now pay the price.

You'll have to forgive me Scott, I'm just very pissed off at the moment <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) --> view post
