I'm wondering if this title will be available just as quickly from the Permaculture Activist Magazine booklist? It might be a way to see that more of the money went directly to the authors?

That first link to their actual site will likely benefit them better directly. By the looks of it you'll pay an additional $15 along with that patronage.

If you would, can you reference your order history and see if there is a stated ship-out date? As far as I understand the actual
publication date was January 17th. This may just be me 'itching', but I'm definitely curious as to a ball-park date. Cheers -

Daniel, I guess you mean Sepp Holzer's Permaculture, which is his newest book. I loved it. It was so inspiring. After reading the book I realized why Paul holds him in such high esteem.

I'm pretty sure the Amazon orders aren't shipping until at least Feb 17th.

When I pre-ordered directly with Peter back in August, he told me February.

Aaron - Right on.

Does anyone have a solid e-mail for Peter Bane? I found one but it was mindspring.net and that doesn't even exist these days.

Peace -

I got an email from Amazon saying that they estimate I will receive the book on June 7th. Good. Gives me a chance to finish some of these other books I'm reading now.

Just received an e-mail from the man himself, Mr Bane.

"Gosh Tad,
We are not sure exactly when the book will be out, but it will likely be no earlier than May.
You're not half as disappointed as I am, but the editing process was prolonged and the book is quite large. We can still hope that the publisher will be nimble and the very thorough work I have done with the editor will pay off in streamlining the production.
regards,
Peter Bane"

Thanks.

I preordered it and was wondering what happened.

I can be patient.

I am sure it is worth the wait.
