If youve been to bookstores looking for The Manticore’s Secret, all I can do is say sorry – its not out yet, for reasons I cant fathom. Should be out in Delhi by Monday, and in stores in the rest of the country by the end of next week. Copies will, of course, be available at the Cal reading next Tuesday.
What can I say – things move slowly. Please do get the book, though 🙂
It had better be available in Kolkata by Tuesday, or ELSE !!!
i went. i asked. i didn’t get. i came back. i read post. i am sad.
Ah, so it isn’t only chennai that’s hopelessly behind…
is it available in the US as yet?
“i went. i asked. i didn’t get. i came back. i read post. i am sad.
You should have posted this earlier… the suspense is killing me… can’t wait till Tuesday.
i second that…ive been going to landmark everyday and asking and the fellow there is now beginning to hide when he sees me marching up the steps….i hope to God it comes out by christmas atleast…
i am now trying to spread ur fame. You Know Who wants a copy of both books. Yay.
dying of suspense…!
i went to get the book and also came back empty handed. What time’s the reading? Will be there.
Surely you mean The Manticore’s Strategy. Is that not the name of Episode 2 ?
Good to be quacking with an author. All the best. And will make sure I grab a copy. When it comes, that is. 😉
yeah…am sad too, my parents came to visit me on sunday and i was hoping they could bring me a copy, am gonna have to wait till it reaches the US now;(
I asked a bookstore if they had “The Manticore’s Secret” and the shop keeper quickly told me that he didn’t keep that “kind of books”.
I was a little surprised by his reaction and was confused by his “we don’t keep those kind of books” remark.
Only later did I realise that he had misheard me and had thought that I was asking for “The Panty Core’s Secret”!!
Man, when is the book really coming out?? I need to clear the misunderstanding with the shopkeeper.
i’ve read it! i’ve read it! i love it! i love it!
you’re brilliant! 😀
What happens over the next two weeks, then? (other than word verification growing till it’s longer than the original post)
