    There's an extra unnecessary comma after the "...reason you, helped," in panel 4 on page 1089b.

    I'm fascinated. The book has been printed, it is on a ship (I like to imagine an airship) headed to Europe. And you think your proofreading will do what?

    That reminds me I should go pick up mine from Gumroad.

    Got a pack of the old ones cheap, my plan was to frame them as artwork. But they are doublesided artwork, and I didn't have enough wall so plan is taking a hiatus atm. Even the 2 years calenders I got when Book 5 was released and have in physical form kay aroudn waiting for me to figure it out.

    Potentially allow the Giant to fix such errors in the digital version and whatever source he may use to reprint the book (if it ever comes to that)?

    The pre-order is over; it only lasted until the books arrived. Now it is just a regular order, and so the lower shipping cost offer is no longer available.

    I know I should change the banners that still say pre-order on them but I do not have the time right now for anything but this quick note (in fact, I'm glad that the fix I made to the Gumroad file seems to have cleared things up for people because it turns out I don't have time to dig into that, either). I'll try to change them this weekend.

    Utterly Dwarfed, the sixth compilation of The Order of the Stick is now in stock. Order at Ookoodook (paper copies) or Gumroad (digital PDFs), or pick it up from your local gaming store.

    I also got this e-mail, which confirmed I hadn't messed up my preorder, which was a relief :) And while i was looking forward to taking these to family on new years to read (as they have been invited out, I haven't been but I'm housesiitting for them) it's at least good to know they will come eventually... even if it may be end of Jan for the UK.

    Is this the point where I remind folks that sometimes they don't send out the e-mail right away when they ship the box? Last book, I got it the same day I was e-mailed (although that could have been because my last name is kinda common and they mixed me up with someone else).

    I appreciate this reminder. Not that I HAVE to have it by Christmas, but right now it's the only gift I will get to open that day...

    I'd be happy with just an estimated ship or arrival date from them.

    Got the email mine is going to be shipped yesterday! This is actually good timing for me, since now I’ll be home when it arrives.

    I think every one of my orders from Ookoodook, I got the email after I had already received the product.

    I can do better than that. I got an e-mail from a book distributor (Aberdeen Books in Ohio, lovely place for a professional bookworm) telling me that my latest order had been delayed...two days after my order had arrived.

    Stuff like that leads to you going nuts and then getting very Zen about the whims of package delivery.

    Two packages arrived at my (Massachusetts) house today. They both contained a copy of Utterly Dwarfed.

    Guess I have an extra to loan out to friends now.

    I think that's a sign of a company not caring enough about their workflow than anything to do with the whims of package delivery. It's not difficult to link those two steps. If a company is consistently treating it as two separate workflows that can be done at different times, that's a problem with the company not caring enough about customer service, or just plain incompetence. Especially if it keeps happening.

    Same here. I ordered late in the pre-order phase, it makes me wonder if the shipments are put together in the order they were received...? Not that it matters as long as I get my stuff!

    Both arrived as part of Saturday mail, all new material has been read, and they are now shelved alongside the rest of the collection (minus Start of Darkness, which currently lives in my office).

    Book and calendar have arrived! Just in time for Hanukkah and Christmas too. The calendar looks fantastic as always; I'll probably update with more detailed impressions of both later.

    Mine arrived at my old address, despite "Tina" saying she would change it back in October.

    Honestly Rich, can you find a partner that doesn't use generic email accounts like "[email protected]" and has some sort of actual customer service that can be contacted? I was able to retrieve it, but I'm not a happy customer at all.

    Hooray!! Came home from brunch to find a big box on my porch!

    Now the challenge is to resist starting the book before I finish what I'm currently reading, or I'll never get back to it. And I'm reading a heck of a good book right now.

    I did read the back cover, the first thing I always do. I love the Giant's habit of including, shall we say, a "meh" review of OotS on each of his own book covers.
    "I like it quite a bit, despite its somewhat infamous wordiness..."
    high praise indeed.

    Hi,
    I ordered the calendar online, which I got by email

    I also ordered Utterly Dwarfed BOTH online and also a printed copy. I don't have either of those yet.

    I can understand the printed copy not being here yet, I'm in Australia and I'm usually one of the last to get the printed copies of the books. The Oookdook tracking for my shipment says it's still in Chicago. So it's still got a long way to go :-)

    The thing I'm getting concerned about is that I don't have the .pdf version of Utterly Dwarfed. I got an email on 11th December from Paypal saying I'd paid US$19 for it, but I don't think I ever got a download link to get it.

    Did I miss something ? Maybe my Spam filter zapped the email with the link ?

    Cheers.

    If you log in to Gumroad you should be able to download the book directly by clicking on the book and then selecting 'read'.

    Yeah, as the Giant noted in his Twitter feed (see summary on left side of screen), Gumroad apparently didn't send e-mails out for Utterly Dwarfed.

    Hmmmmmm. I don't think I have a login to Gumroad. I can visit https://gumroad.com/, then click on "login" and I know what email address I used to purchase the books, but it's asking for a password. I don't believe I've ever had a gumroad password. I can't log in using facebook or twitter, because I have never had either a facebook or witter account (nor do I want an account for either). I'll have to look through all my old emails and see if I did once get a password from them.

    Ah, as mentioned just a few lines ago, I don't use Twitter, or have an account, so that's why I missed it ! I should probably check the twitter feed link in the left of the forum more often. Thanks for letting me know.

    Cheers.

    EDIT:
    OK, I definitely don't have an account with Gumroad. I tried the "I've forgotten my password" link with the email address I always use to purchase OOTS stuff from them and it says "An account does not exist with that email."

    WHen I buy stuff from OOTS via Gumroad, I always just make a one-off purchase. I never bothered to set up an account. In the past, I've just received an email and downloaded the thing I bought.

    Is there any way to get Gumroad to send me an email with the download link ? Is there a reason why they didn't do that this time ?

    I probably should have set up an account with them, but I usually prefer not to set up accounts where I don't absolutely have to. I prefer not to give personal information to companies to keep.. hence not having a facebook or twitter account too... :-)

    EDIT2:

    OK, I really should have read the twitter feed thing carefully before even posting this... but I don't tend to think of twitter much. I never use it. Anyway, Rich said:
    Hmm, it looks like emails with links for the book may not be going out, but the book is available to download nonetheless if you pre-ordered. You can get it by going to https://gumroad.com/library and logging in (or creating an account using the same email you used to buy).
    (emphasis mine, on creating a new account)

    So..... I just created an account and let's see if I can get it that way.

    EDIT 3:


    Yep, that worked. Looks like I can even re-download anything I've paid for in the past too. I probably should have set up an account right at the start.
    Just waiting for the paper copy to arrive now.
