Mine arrived today. It's quite nice, but I can't activate the code. :(

If only the code was redeemable..

When you don't know the difference between there, their, and they're, you come across as being so uneducated that your viewpoint can be safely dismissed. The literate is unlikely to learn much from the illiterate.

Same for me. It does not work.
If this problem persists we should put in a petition.

God dammit, missed out on the limited edition. Why didn't i see this news item untill now :/

Edit: Pfew, the Australian shop ships to EU :)

I intend to do exactly that with mine.

Which incidentally shipped today \o/


Nice idea about FanFest, more of a "do it yourself" method to appeal to Industrialists ... its like buying a one run BPC P
( ... if only I was able to go and get it signed)

Either way ... \o/ ... now to wait till it ships back out from the land of the Bouncing Joey to the land of the Bouncing Betty or the land of the Bouncing Veronica.

If you want to wait, EVE Source will be released to regular brick and mortar and online bookstores on March 18th. On the same date, it will be released an ebook on Dark Horse Digital, Kindle, iBooks, Google Books, Nook and Kobo.


I cannot find the book in the Apple iBook Store. Any idea what's wrong?

Many thanks for any hint!

No, it was actually a conversation between CCP and Dark Horse, based on prior works and their limited editions they had released on other titles and franchises. In retrospect, the number was too low, but due to the nature of limited editions, we will not be releasing more of this one, that would negate the value attributed to it for the people that managed to get a copy.

There is always the standard edition, it has all the pictures and the text:

You can find it here at Things From Another World.

Thank you for that. People love EVE. Don't be surprised by it still after over 10 years. Hopefully your next limited edition product can satisfy just a bit more than 0.1% of your customer base.

And for what it's worth, I did get a limited edition Source. My concerns aren't because I didn't get one. I bought one from Australia.

forgive me if this question was asked before....
but I got a little confused about that point after reading the first posts in this tread.....
the one EVE Source book wich is available right now (10.may.2014) is not a hardcover?

I just ordered yesterday and I am very exited for it to arrive monday or so, but I´m not sure now if I am still interested if this is just like a magazine and not a "book"?

...or am I totaly wrong way with this fear and my "not limited"Edition of EVE Source will still be a real "book" and there just some other differences between limited and regular version?

My understanding is that the standard edition is a softbound book. Not magazine, but think more "collected works" or "paper back" style. Same dimensions as the hard bound edition, just different binding and cover material (the Limited Edition was leather bound).

The only other differences are the 2 prints that were included in the Limited Edition, and the "Voyager" plaque w/code for some in-game 'collectables' (like this: New Eden Source in-game edition ). Mostly just fluff and stuff to be honest.
