At Fanfest, we announced we were producing EVE Source, a complete book which contains all the information lore-nerds such as myself need about the backstory of EVE Online. We're happy to announce that the book is complete and coming to stores near you very soon!

In this dev blog, EVE Creative Director CCP t0rfifrans discusses the Limited Edition version of EVE Source and lets you know all the places to get it, including where to preorder!

Plain EVE Source version not going to be sold from the eve store?
#3 - 2014-02-13 15:09:41 UTC
Ok, this is getting frustrating. I had to buy the collector's edition trough Amazon, because the EVE store doesn't ship to Brasil. Now I can't buy this because it won't ship to Brasil. But now it is worse, because I ran to the store to buy it and get the lithograph, and I see I won't get it. C'mon man, I even went to fanfest last year, I want to spend my money in EVE stuff, but I can't. I'll have to settle for the hardcover edition, that's it?

I'm really mad about this.

ebook good. ebook searchable. searchable means hoisting CCP by their own petard when they make mistakes in canon.

Any bets on when the first retcon occurs?

With kindle, you can download books to your PC, but you have to stay within the kindle app (because copyright infringement paranoia.) Books are searchable, you can copy text, etc., so most of the benefits of a PDF with a minimum of fuss.

Even you being right about the stupid laws, or the massive taxes, the problem now is not here, the problem is the EVE store not shipping it here. When I bought the collector's edition, I paid more in taxes than the sum of product and S&H. I knew it, and I was prepared to pay for it. Now I don't have the option to buy it, because the only store selling it won't send it to me.

Got it?

About moving to another country, I would love to, but it is something easier said than done, right?

So, if I get it right.
It will be shipped by musterstuff company in germany (EU).
Yet, non-EU countries and US countries will get the book cheaper than EU countries?

So... WTF?

How about a retailer for the hardcover version in europe? I am not interested buying it in the US where the conversion/shipping/tax probably costs more than the book.

This is going to look great on my coffee table. When I get a coffee table, that is.

Can't wait to dual box my Dust toon and EVE toon on the same machine!

Already put my order in, and glad I did.

Are the Limited Edition with the Signed Lithographs going to be numbered? To know I would own #3 of 500 would be delightful.

The Plaque itself is numbered for the 1400 copies of the collectors edition.

Going to express my private frustration in public: charging some customers in the U.S. $32 to ship this is absurd.

Like Malcanis, I was hugely impressed by this in Iceland -- it's a VERY high quality product -- but I'm not paying $120 for it. I join my voice to the gentleman from Brazil in hoping Amazon will be getting some of these, and some of the signed ones would be ideal.

$31.90 is pretty steep for shipping...

If this is anywhere close to the quality of the book in the collector's edition, I'll be quite satisfied.
