Yes!

Neil ''spent time at the printer''. The free enclosure from Faber for those who thought they had been able to order the special edition implied that Neil had produced all copies of this print but I thought that was too good to be true!

pretty much past caring now ... but has anyone received the regular signed copy from Coles?

I rang them can't remember when and they were still waiting for their allocation to come in ...
you could say conventional ... and I could claim intentional

Also still waiting on Coles. Likewise rang ages ago and was told the same thing. Bizarre really.

Ditto as above! (Coles).

I have e-mailed a couple of times. The last once must have been about three weeks ago. I was told that they have them instore (handy!) and that they have had their first batch in. I will been receiving mine in a couple of weeks. (It has gone that). Please e-mail them as if more of you do this it may make them get their finger out.

I am so fed up with it now. :roll: What have we done to deserve this? I have ordered many books but this one...…..

Spoke to Coles again today. The bloke said one batch has already been despatched (based on date ordered) but they can't send the rest until Neil has signed them! Wut?! I thought that was all done ages ago, at the beginning of this never-ending saga. It's now more than a month since publication day - it's crazy. In fact, I'm starting to smell a rat. Can anyone confirm that they HAVE actually received a book from Coles??

Thank you for chasing it up PSB-90."Something" isn't right here is it? I don't think Coles' are dodgy btw as I had ordered another signed book from them when I ordered Neil's book and it arrived very quickly. I think this has been organised very poorly. Perhaps Neil should have got them signed well before they were released etc... If they had been done we would have had them all and we would not even of known. I know I ordered mine quite late so.......

You're welcome Marie. No, I don't really see how Coles could be dodgy either, they seem perfectly reputable, and interesting to hear that your other book arrived normally - but as you say it just feels like something isn't quite right. Oh well, just have to wait and see...

So a month after publication, and a month following the dispatch of the numbered limited editions, my replacement book has finally turned up, along with the promised refund. I’m surprised that Neil didn’t incscribe something more than his name after presumably signing nearly 1000 books. Now keeping eye on eBay to see if some dodgy Hermes delivery bloke is flogging a few hundred limited editions, although it looks like they may have just delivered multiple copies to a few lucky customers, presumably to save on costs.

Well - what a strange surprise this afternoon.

Having had a refund last week and an email telling me a standard signed copy would be shipped, a signed special edition (no 428) arrived today!

Utterly bizarre! But I’m a happy man today!
Fingers crossed the rest of you have the same situation.

Just for the sake of it, make sure you're always frowning. :|

Coles just emailed me, cancelled my order, and refunded. They did not receive the signed copies as expected. I have ordered a cheap copy via Amazon so I can keep my limited edition sealed.
