Don't know why I bothered opening this thread because there seems to be no interest in it. :( 

Oh well...

It's the same for TLoS4. I ordered a TLoS4 copy from the German Amazon website (in the hope it will arrive here in the Netherlands sooner than the special edition version I ordered at  Barnes & Noble in the USA).
Only after ordering at Amazon I found out that they have put the 17th of July as delivery date, even though the book gets released on the 7th (and TLoS1 arrived from the German Amazon even a few days before the official release date 2 years ago, so it's very possible for Amazon to deliver on time). dryy

So my USA books will most likely arrive even before the German one, when Germany is only 5 miles away from where I live. It's so stupid.  Evil or Very Mad
(I can order TLoS4 at a Dutch website but it's more expensive in the Netherlands, plus I'd have to pay shipping costs as well, when the German online bookstores ship books for free.)


About the 'Adventures from the Land of Stories Boxed Set': the release date is as far away as in october, that's still a long time. People's attention (rightfully imo) is focused on TLoS4 first, which will be released first in a little over 2 months.
After that (and the book tour) in July the Boxed Set defintiely will get more buzz and attention, the more the closer we get to their released date.

Tbh, I haven't pre-ordered those books yet, nor the picture book 'The Curvy Tree'. First of all there's only so much money I can spend at a time (and shipping books over from the USA is expensive), so I don't know yet how many copies I want/can afford from those other books, especially when prizes sometimes change before the release date.

But most of all: I want to wait with pre-ordering to see if there will be possible extras available, like maybe a good package deal (i.e. TLoS 4 + The Boxed Set, or The Boxed Set + The Curvy Tree), or autographed copies, or another special edition to be announced yet. I was very lucky when I pre-ordered TloS4, because I just happened to look on the B&N site the day their special edition was announced, so I ordered that edition instead of the regular one.

Also: sometimes the versions sold in Europe are different from the ones in the USA (like the European TLoS1 had no map inside, the covers of both TLoS1 and TLoS2 weren't embossed with gold/silver and the books had a different size than TLoS3). So I also have to figure all that out and make sure I get the USA version in an European bookstore before I order, which is impossible when there's not an official cover up on the bookstore's website, nor any pages count given on the site.
(I was not amused with the European TLoS1 and TLoS2 books, so I ended up ordering extra copies in the USA, and gave the European books away to an elementary school nearby.)

So not knowing yet what the books will look like and what possible different versions are going to pop up next, is imo therefore also part of why there's not that much interest in the Boxed Set yet.
But that should change as soon as we know more, i.e. when the media buzz starts after TLoS4 has had its proper time in the spotlight, when the covers get released, and Chris starts to spoil little things on his twitter or instagram.

I'm sure the interest in the Boxed Set and 'The Curvy Tree' will be adequate and very satisfying in a few months. Just wait for it: there are so many good things to come. fanny2

I prefer to buy from B&N when I can, and they seem to have a more exclusive relationship with Chris' books in terms of selling them with added goodies, so I'll wait unti they announce the box set to preorder. I'm thinking it's going to be beautiful though. Can't wait!

@chriscolfer Excited to reveal the covers of #QueenRedRidingHoodsGuidetoRoyalty and #TheMotherGooseDiaries! Coming this October!

hrhchriscolfer Excited to reveal the covers of #QueenRedRidingHoodsGuidetoRoyalty and #TheMotherGooseDiaries! #QueenRed is a royal self-help book and spoofs Niccolò Machiavelli’s “The Prince.” #MotherGoose is…well….trouble. I’ll have to write lots of apologies for both. How amazing is Brandon Dorman’s art???

I am really getting fed up with Amazon and thier failure to deliver! Just had an e mail from them concerning my pre order of the boxed set saying they are unable to supply it! Anyone else pre ordered and got the same email? Any suggestions were I can order it? I can get the paper back editions but not the hard Book box set dryy

How about Barns and Noble? Amazon had been in feud w/ Chris' publisher for awhile, so delaying shipment or not carrying that publishers' books were the norm. I suggest you look elsewhere, such as BnN, who has a good relationship w/ chris.

Edit: just realized that you are in England. Is there another book seller that sells the boxset that you know? You may also want to contact the publisher in email or such, and find out who in UK sells the boxset.

Worse comes to worst you can always order from BnN if you dont mind paying a big shipping fee.

I've ordered them from the book depository now free shipping, I could get the separate paper back books but I prefer hardback books, it would of been 65.84 dollars for two sets and p&p from Barnes and noble
