I’ve been meaning to buy Ada Palmer’s book for some time and lots of people (even some who didn’t like it) have suggested that it’s a book I might like. Well there it is – a Hugo finalist and me with decks cleared for Hugo reading and…
Amazon initially denied its existance when I looked on my Kindle. On computer, Amazon thought it might have an audio book version but not one I could buy. Trying a different way Amazon might ship me a used hardback version. Huh?
I went via another route – Kobo. Ah, there it was as an ebook! Ah but I then got redirected to the Australian store and…no book! To add insult to injury, adverts on other websites became Kobo adverts showing books with “Lightning” in the title.
It turns out there’s no distribution deal for it UK/Aus (which is weird because I’m sure some Brits had recommended it to me). That must be incredibly frustrating for Ada Palmer.
I may have to get that second hand copy shipped over! (Or Tor – Hugo packet might be an idea if lots of voters can’t get the book outside of the US)
