  • September Fifth!

    who's pumped?
    im pumped.
    great.

    i think amazon may be swarmed with pre-orders
    i dont think ive ever seen a book sell out five months before it comes out.

    A better question is: who isn't pumped? I think we're all looking forward to it. (Maybe too much)

      Indeed Indeed...but who knows...I believe that it would be hard for him to top HoL, but it seems as though the man can work miracles

        O.R. sold out?

          Didn't know quite where to stick this, so I'll just stick it here. Possible ideas for signed copies. He could do purple, gold and green o's. Which is not a far stretch by any means. I think a green "o" with a blue "z" through it would be great. Wouldn't that be over the rainbow?

              No blurbs are listed on the order screens for various sites. Not that I've seen, so we don't really know for sure. I'm sure you can read much speculation in this forum though. I think we're all waiting eagerly to find out what its about though.

                "From Mark Z. Danielewski, author of the best-selling
                of Leaves, comes his astonishing Only Revolutions,
                a stunning shoot-from-the-hip American road novel about
                Sam & Hailey—two wild and wayward kids who magically
                career from the Civil War to the Iraq War and beyond.
                Powered by an ever-evolving fleet of cars, from
                Model T to Shelby Mustang, these two captivating
                teenagers never let up, and they never grow old. They
                crash parties in New Orleans, barrel up the Mis-
                sissippi, and blast through the Badlands, cutting a
                nation in half even as they try to outrace History itself.
                And where this journey takes them is what sets
                the pages, even the actual book, turning. Alternating
                between Hailey & Sam, this kaleidoscopic novel
                spins the strangest, most gripping, and most lyrical
                love story published in more than a generation.
                Exhilarating. Breathtaking. An absolute marvel."

                  What?! They are releasing a full-color edition?!?! Where have I been?

                    I want that full color edition of of Leaves almost as much as I want the new book. That is a difficult competition.

                      Is the full color only a limited release? Because I won't have the money to buy it right away... ?
                      But then again, I would want to get it before MZD comes to Seattle...

                        I'm guessing full color is going to become the standard edition form now on, so your blue copy will become a legend in time as the Full-Color once was.

                          amazon bastards...

                          I ordered two "remastered full-colour editions" from Amazon only to receive the normal " in blue" edition. I wanted the full colour & the preview/foreward for myself and a friend.

                          Just a heads up for anyone ordering from amazon with expectations of getting what's advertised. Go to a book store to make sure you're getting the goods.

                              Damn! I just ordered a full color-ed form Amazon myself! You should return those items. I've never had any troubles with Amazon before, but I know form a friend who had some troubles in the past that the Return Department in Amazon is quite professional, so you should ask for your money or prper replacements...


                              Damn, those are bad news! And since I'm in Mexico and the book isn't coming as I expected, how am I going to get a Full-Color ed?

                              And I can't cancel the order! It just shipped a few hours ago! :banghead:
