Just received the paperback version author's-proof copies of "Assimilation". I would have been running around and chasing my tail with excitement - if it were not for my back playing up at the moment...!!
We're still waiting for the paperback to come onto Amazon.co.uk's database, but it is now available on the main Amazon.com site (and for now, it's even reduced to the same price as the Kindle version!).
(and yes, that is my parrot trying to get a look in the box... ;) )
