Werner Stengel Book Release Date

Monday, July 3, 2006 12:23 AM
I received an email from Amazon.com the other day stating that the Stengel book will be released on July 15, 2006. I thought the price was pretty reasonable too. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/3933257395/ref=pd_sim_b_5/104-8593614-1172759?%5Fencoding=UTF8&v=glance&n=283155

Haven't some people here tried ordering this book before but never received it? I want it just for the sexy cover photo... ;)

Well let's hope it's for real this time.

I'm pretty sure there has been like 10 "official release dates" so far and none of them have ever been true.

I thought that was the case MrX. I wonder what the problem is/was?

That's very strange. I received an e-mail on Thursday (6/29) from Amazon.com stating they are canceling my order as the book is not available from any of their sources. I placed the order about two years ago.

I am really thinking about translating this book There HAS to be a market for it for the english speaking coaster literati.

Problem is, it was released by a small publisher as a companion to a Stengel exhibition in a museum in Munich. And this exhibition was not exactly "Tut-Anch-Amun".

While we´re at it: can we please have a new edition of the Harry Traver book? This doesn´t even require a translation!

^ it seems to late to do that - the new edition is in English already.

Unfortunately the original German edition:

http://www.amazon.de/exec/obidos/ASIN/3933257395/302-7191126-5232804

...is out of stock, and obviously out of print as well - I saw it on ebay once for a pretty ridiculous prize.

Too bad!

Same exact thing with me! I'll have to try ordering it again now. Maybe if we all place enough orders they'll actually go through with it this time.
