After following the link to Amazon it says:

"Pricing information not available."

Does that mean that it is not available or its not available in my region (to lazy to check via proxy).
I would like to buy the book but i can do that only with the paper-ones (anyone still using those?). Are there any other sources? The purchased book must be openable using non-Kindle readers :) Or convertable.


I have Sony PRS-600 reader. I usually read books in PDF / DOC / TXT.

I have an excellent solution. Note: Before continuing to read, you must have a willingness to do menial exercise.

1. Grab keys
2. Walk out to vehicle
3. Drive to nearest Barnes & Noble
4. Buy Templar One (Dunno if it's out yet)
5. Drive home
6. ????
7. Profit.

Unless different regions have different delivery dates, the dead tree editions were available on 03 January.

One of the bitter points of a good bittervet is the realisation that all those SP don't really do much, and that the newbie is having much more fun with what little he has. - Tippia

I live in Poland...
And I want the electronic version - driving to the shop seems like a stupid idea in this situation...

thx but it links to the hardcover edition... and also it says:

"This title has not yet been released.
You may pre-order it now and we will deliver it to you when it arrives.
Dispatched from and sold by Amazon.co.uk. Gift-wrap available. "

I dont get it - has the book been releaed or not? Or in which regions? I have failed in finding any information about that. And eve store is down.

The perfect setup to an archaic but much loved forum meme.

If it is true then...

you guys realise that this information should have got posted along with the announcement that the book is out? No?
It would have saved the frustration of many people.
Geeez...


The original announcement stated:
"The third EVE Online novel, EVE: Templar One, is available in stores all over the place including, of course, ebook versions."
Makes me think the person who wrote it is an example of a typical narrow-minded american... (/me makes an evil face)



EDIT: anyone tried using proxy to cheat amazon that youre in the us?

Pretty sure if you go to market, it's under "Drones > Fighters". You can buy One Templar there.

To launch it Pretty Damn Fast, go to "drones" on your overview, right click and click "Launch drones".

Don't thank me yet. Cool

Besides, I don't think we (in Poland) had anything more than the emyprean age in stores?
