Don't Worry, Be Happy.
I don't think I'm the only person who noticed the above at Amazon.com -- for instance, Rosic mentioned it on the comments thread on the previous post. Clearly it appears that a variety of on-line retailers have become convinced that Stonebridge Press's The Art of Robotech: The Shadow Chronicles has been delayed until the end of August. Yikes!
However, at the official thread on the Robotech.com forums, Kevin McKeever insists everything is on track for the advertised release date of ... oh, look, tomorrow! His last post on the topic reads:
Today I talked with Peter Goodman, the CEO of Stonebridge Press, about these notice of delays you are recieiving from certian retailers. He has informed me that everything is on schedule, the books are leaving the printer and the retailers should start receiving them any day now.
As with so many things, we'll see for sure what's up when the book is actually in peoples' hands ... but clearly as far as Banky McKevinpants knows, the book is en route to the shops and the on-line retailers are clearly confused. Maybe they just got the tentative release date for the RPG book from Palladium and all assumed they were the same book? Who knows ...
