    Just an email for Amazon.co.uk regarding the prequel novel to War For Cybertron.

    I don't know if its true or whether its just Amazon's supplier who can't get it.

    Well, we never did get that Art of ROTF book last year, so I wouldn't be surprised.

    Amazon.co.uk had three versions listed - one HC, one PB and one that was unavailable when I pre-ordered a copy yesterday. Maybe the publisher has changed the formats, causing one to no longer be available?

    In comic books, stuff gets cancelled all the time only to be resolicited at a later date. It's possible the book lost its slot at the printer, or some last-minute editing is taking longer than expected. Maybe somebody decided to redesign the dust jacket, who knows? Maybe the word Cybertron is misspelled. Random House is a major publisher, so I'm dismayed, slightly worried, but far from full panic mode.

    My pre-order on the American Amazon site has NOT been canceled, so let's hope this is just the format-thing that Toadimus Prime mentioned.
