Don't buy it, so no "sold out" lol! I don't like UK publishers anyways, postage+price everything pricey! Maybe they should open an office in Hong Kong!

I ordered on December 30 - still processing.

The fact that it's sold out already suggests they vastly underestimated demand - hopefully they do another print run.

Answer from Imagineshop regarding the Sold Out Amiga book:

Quote:
Unfortunately we are not printing any more of these at this time. Please try www.greatdigitalmags.com for a digital copy or Amazon for a hard copy.
So for me there is no solution as Amazon refuses to ship it to my country.

WHSmith in Canterbury haven't had it in, Imagineshop is still processing!

To say this takes the piss is putting it lightly. There have been no apologies from Retro Gamer either just excuses

How many pages is it? It better not be a glorified magazine. I paid for a bloody book. Mine was posted yesterday apparently so I am expecting my copy tomorrow morning.

I ordered mine via Amazon on the 3rd and it arrived today



EDIT: as of today 9/1/2015 Amazon is also showing out of stock now. I guess the only option for those who haven't got managed to get hold of a copy is to try the bookshops/ WH smiths near you.

Canterbury - WHSMITH is unlikely to stock it, Westwood Cross at Margate doesn't have it either.

Thanks for the picture. It looks like a magazine rather than a book.

From what more people have been saying it's just rehashed stuff from other magazines, the usual crap from Retro Gamer

It is more like a magazine yes, the official site refers to it as a "Bookazine" on the order page.
