DOWN THESE STRANGE STREETS in the UK



I found out today that the DOWN THESE STRANGE STREETS anthology, containing Diana Gabaldon's novella, "Lord John and the Plague of Zombies", is not scheduled for release in the UK until November 17, 2011, a full six weeks after its October 4th release date in the US and elsewhere!

Naturally, those of you in the UK will be disappointed to hear this. If you want to get the book sooner, you have several different options:
  • Order a signed copy from the Poisoned Pen bookstore, in Scottsdale, Arizona. This is Diana Gabaldon's local bookstore, and they ship all over the world. Their staff is very friendly and knowledgeable about Diana's books.
  • Check online sites such as the Book Depository, which will ship to UK residents.
  • I'm told that amazon.de (the German Amazon site) is also a good resource for shipping (English-language) books to the UK.  Even if you don't speak German, the site seems reasonably easy to navigate.  You can pre-order DOWN THESE STRANGE STREETS here.
Please help get the word out to anyone you know in the UK who may be interested.  Thanks!

Personally I'm not too concerned about the delay because if I remember rightly Zombies comes after Scottish Prisoner chronologically. For once in my life I'm happy to be patient and read them in order even if they don't exactly follow on from one another.

Afterall I've waited this long so another month won't kill me ... I hope!

That's true, "Zombies" comes after SCOTTISH PRISONER chronologically.
