Topic: Cryptum: Availability in Europe?

Dear Greg Bear,

I am really looking forward to reading your new book, but I have noticed that it is momentarily not available in my country, Belgium. I am not looking for a translated version, just the way it is.

Are there any plans of it being released in Europe (apart from the UK) any time soon?

Yours sincerely,
Jules Velleman

Hi Greg - just thought I would note this to you, that Jules didn't actually receive a reply from you, though it seems very likely you wrote one.

I've noticed this 'no-reply' several times in recent months, so you might want to have that nice lady who does your site look at it.

I think I wrote you an extra reply also a bit ago, to the 'writing desk' posting, and never saw that appear either.

Sorry had to miss you down here last week -- presume it was a good party. I am still thinking out a nice review for Hull Zero Three. That one really got to me in a way I appreciate, and would like to say.

Best, and you didn't miss anything weatherwise if you went right back home before today ;)

Hey, Clive! I'm backed up on answers that require answers from other folks. Right now, availability of CRYPTUM in Europe is unknown - may be determined soon. I'm not in control of that angle. Sorry to have missed you in San Diego!

Hi Greg - well, well understood ;).

Jules, from my life in Europe, thought to check amazon.de alternate sellers. It looks like there are several sellers who you can buy from in Euros, who will send the book at reasonable price.

Try http://www.amazon.de/gp/offer-listing/0765323966/ref=dp_olp_new?ie=UTF8&qid=1294857197&sr=1-1&condition=new

Best to both,
Clive

Basically, publishers still want to control their geographic markets. Books are available from approved U.S. sellers. Signed copies also available... from signedpage and University Book Store in Seattle.
