Grossly unfair

Speaking of upcoming book releases, there seem to be a huge number of Wordcandy books coming out this fall/winter, many of which come as a pleasant surprise (and an overdue reminder that we need to update the calendar).

Sadly, however, there was a significant fly in our ointment: a staggered release date for the upcoming Diana Wynne Jones book Enchanted Glass. Readers in England will apparently get their hands on this sucker four months before those of us in the U.S., in a move that brings out our outraged-and-whiny inner thirteen-year-olds.

Note to Ms. Jones's publishers: Prettier cover art than that pictured above *might* make us quicker to forgive.

Or increase the whining. "It's so pretty; I want it na-ooooooowwww."

You're probably right. But it might make us more forgiving after we get the book. (Otherwise we can hold a grudge for a hell of a long time.)
