Has this book been published yet? Amazon still say 'temporarily unavailable'. If so, any reviews?

Unavailable on Amazon (I ordered Apr 6th), isn't even mentioned on Breedon's site and no acknowledgment of its existence on Accies' official site, the club shop or the Hamilton Advertiser.

I was speaking to Breedons last week, and IIRC it's taking longer than expected. If I hear anything else I'll post here.

Considering its supposed to finish with promotion in 2008 its going to be seriously out of date come publication. I hope they're going to use the delay to take the opportunity to include this season. Avoiding relegation from the top flight for the first time since Neville Chamberlain waved bits of paper about at airports is surely a notable enough achievement to warrant inclusion?

Turns out the book has been available from the club shop for most of August, there are serious questions over the book over on an accies forum- http://www.setbb.com/acciesworld/viewto ... cciesworld

Delivery estimate is now Sep 21 - Oct 9. Something seriously wrong here. If it has been available in the club bookshop has anyone seen it? Do they know if it has been updated to include 2008-09?

Extract from Amazon e-mail:

"Dear Customer,

A. C. Dick, et al "An Illustrated History Hamilton Academicals: A Complete History"

One of Amazon's aims is to provide a convenient and efficient service; in this case, we have fallen short. Please accept our sincere apologies.

Yes but Amazon were 'selling' it back in April. Presumably the distribution source is the same. If you (or anyone else) hears of anyone actually RECEIVING a copy through the post from anywhere, please let me know. I've cancelled my Amazon order. Not their fault but six months is far too long to wait.

Revolutionary thought I know, but have you thought about contacting Soccer Books to see if they actually have the book in stock?
