Well the paperback version is on sale on the Shop page so I'm having that now.

But the Ltd. Edition with vinyl isn't going to be available until the New Year.

Guess I'll wait for this one.
Well, I might've read some of those lyrics before.  ;D

Ltd edition sounds good, but expect the price to be in the region of £70+ (according to Tim)

UPS tried to deliver my parcel.
They didn't try very hard.
In the 20 seconds it took to go downstairs to open the door they'd left a card saying I wasn't in and driven away.
I went on their website THAT day to request a re-delivery.
They ignored my request and sent a message to the sender telling THEM to tell ME to go to their office and pick it up.


UPS SUCK.
