Or should we wait for Greybeard? In his dotage, he has fallen somewhat behind.
I got a tweet from Sparty who seems to have secured the first legitimately (sort of) purchased copy via the Beast of Bezos and little VPN trickery.
I expect the physical roll out to be much slower, given the season.i

If you want all your heavy drinking, buffet destroying, monster smashing SPLODEY Dave action delivered free o' charge in the traditional dead tree format, this would be the week to head over to Boomerang books.
Emergence is Book o' the Week there with free domestic shipping when you use the promo code 'thedave' at checkout.
On this topic, I've thought of a way US Burgers could get the book early without paying stupid shipping rates. If a couple of you want to team to together and order a bunch of books to be sent to one address, the receiver could then forward them on via the much cheaper US postal system. Feel free to organise that below, or email me if interested. I could work with a local bookseller to expedite.
To encourage squealy excitment, here is the UK cover mock up. I love it with an unnatural physical love.

The eagle-eyed among you will have noticed a banner ad pop up for Emergence. That link (and this) will take you to Booktopia, where I get an extra 7.5% royalty for any business I send to them. This addresses some of my issues with running Amazon ads, as Booktopia are an Australian operation. Plus an extra 7.5% will finally let me get that third gold plated hovercraft I need.
Booktopia are an ebook retailer, (my bad earlier, I said they weren't) but they don't have a deal with Pan Macmillan, so for anyone looking for Kindle copies, you'll want to get on the end of this link.
That'll take you to the US kindle store, where a lot of you have accounts, but if you've programmed the nav computers for the somewhat hapless Aussie store on your electronical book reader, it should offer to redirect you. If it doesn't redirect, DONT USE THAT LINK - you'll be left waiting until April with the likes of Boylan and McKinney.
For anybody who wants to get hyperlocal in their support, Pages and Pages in North Sydney have teamed up with Boomerang Books and you can support one of the best bookstores in Sydney by hitting this link up.

... but not just the usual anonymous 'With Compliments' slip from the publisher. So I had a batch of stationary made up. Straight from the desk of Dave Hooper.
I used a web based company called Vistaprint to get them done and am still a bit amazed at the speed and quality with which they delivered fifty perfectly printed sheets for less than twenty bucks. I tried a few other places and was quoted hundreds.

Got home from the beach to find these bad boys waiting for me at the front door.
