Numenera - Just when you thinks its over.
Just when you thought I was done. Hell I thought I was done. Then I picked up something at the post office today much to my surprise.
After raising my voice on my blog and in a few other places last month about the delay in receiving my copy things got done. MCG sent me a priority 'fast as you can get it there' package through USPS. Which is fine as I use a PO box and most delivery services don't deliver to those. I got it in a couple of days, confirmation and all that. It has been sitting in a plastic tote in my room since then as I have no desire to even read it.
So today I get a package in the mail from PSI. The service that MCG is using for their shipping. Inside is another copy of Numenera. First I thought it must be the copy that was shipped before and it really did get lost in the mail. Nope it has an October shipping date AND it has Peter Amthor on the address (which isn't my real name, I gave MCG my real name for shipping). So this was shipped after, like weeks after, I received the first copy.
What does this mean? It means their shipping company is really, REALLY, screwing up. All I can guess at is that they are really still way behind on shipping books out. As in they just now got to my copy. Or maybe they just now got around to checking the 'ship these now they are late' notices from MCG. But honestly I don't even know since they didn't have the correct name for shipping on it. Personally I would be switching companies for handling this stuff next time, but that's just me.
So if I would have just waited as they wanted us all to do it would have been another month.
Now... I think I'm done. I don't foresee anything else that could possibly go on with this Kickstarter that would even be worth wasting my time over.
