Amazon has sold out my new book The Fortunes of Permanence for the fourth (or is it the fifth?) time. It is some consolation to see that Amazon is listing the book as shipping now in only a matter of days, not months. Meanwhile, impatient readers can avail themselves of B&N.com to purchase a shiny new hard cover right now, today. (Barnes and Noble also has a Nook version available now, and Amazon has the Kindle version available now, too.) Progress!
