    Regarding this book, do we know when we are getting a paperback version? Maybe I am weird, but I hate reading hardcovers, so any word on a paperback release?

    I would really like to read this one before I get spoiled completely...

    I'm with you on this one. I have been holding off on specifically because it's a hardcover, despite ample opportunities to buy the book. I just seem to always destroy the binding on hardcovers. Also I'm very lazy and do most of my reading while laying down, and holding up a hardcover is hard work. LOL. So yes, we need a paperback version now.

    I HATE paperback! They always fall apart on me. Well graphic novels anyway. lol I do really want to read this book, but my parents say it's too expensive so I kinda do want a paperback to come out. Does anybody know if the book is actually in stores?

    I have it in paperback. Living in the UK, I ordered my copy from Waterstone's.

    In the UK, where it's published by Titan Books, they skipped the hardback releaser and went straight into paperback. The market for hardback tie-in novels is quite limited here -- Star Wars ones do okay, but not magnificently. Check Amazon.co.uk and see if you can get one shipped to you. Failing that, I work in a bookshop and can probably grab a copy for cost and shipping.

    I think it was brilliant, I chose to rent not buy the game because of it.

    In the US, a publisher will typically release the paperback about 8-12 months after the hardcover. Not set in stone, but that's the typical time frame.

    Silvershot is correct..also if there are any hardbound editions still out there, they will go in the bargin bins..typically 4.97-6.97 USD, if you can wait that long

    Paperback spines are more easily ruined than a hardback binding. What the hell are you doing to a hardback that you break it?!? :)

    I'm currently reading and enjoying it. Love all the nods to War Within and Megatron:Origin.
