Precisely. I like to keep my autographed copies as in good nick as possible. Unfortunately the book is too fat to fit on the little acrylic displays I have so I need to find a bigger one.  :laugh:

Dude, you are of strong will to hold off while you have a copy to hand lol.

Only around 100 pages in so far but really digging it.

Some excellent character work in here.

There's also the Aaron Percival in the Rage War trilogy    :D

And one in Alien The RPG.

He really deserves a knighthood for his services to the Alien Queen and Country. "Sir" Percival really has a nice ring to it, doesn't it?  :P

They should have an SM review too, but instead of a quote it can be a shovel to indicate that he dug it.

I remember back when he got ACM, he took a shovel and buried it out in the Outback (Atari ET style).

He really dug that game.

I feel like someone has been brushing up on his Arthurian legend recently and wants to show off.  :laugh:

That said, there are a few familiar names in Charybdis...

I did pre-purchase the Audible but it doesn't unlock until I'm at work apparently. Still no sign of my other copy.  :'(

Uk release has been pushed back to until March 16th btw. It should be out in the States now.

It's occurring to me (I'm slow) that waiting for the paperback is going to mean me sitting here for months having not read the story, so in all likelihood I'll be getting the hardback after all :laugh:

And in all likelihood it'll be signed, if they've got any left.

There's a reason Hicks often calls me in to sub on the novel podcasts ;)

I'm just gunna go for the Audible. I stopped buying books a few years ago because the humidity here f**ks them and it feels like throwing money into a pit. Especially with the flashy, expensive Alien related books I've historically been so big on.

I've started with the audible, and I must say Arserio does a decent Iranian accent imo.
