Kevin will read from Clockwork Angels and share his experience creating the novel with Neil Peart. Books will also be on sale and Kevin will be doing a book signing. Anderson also announced the appearance on his blog and added the following information regarding the audiobook version of the novel:

... this afternoon I was in the studio recording a special afterword for the Brilliance unabridged audio edition of the novel (which is read by Neil Peart). Over the past two days, I worked with artist Hugh Syme to develop a lavish illustrated booklet, 32 pages, which is exclusive to the physical edition of the audiobook. It's been approved by Neil and already off to press. The audio will be released simultaneously with the hardcover novel on September 1, and both are available for preorder now.

You can pre-order the audiobook version of Clockwork Angels (narrated by Neil Peart) at this location, and the hardcover edition here.

I also tried the ecwpress site and got a book in the cart, filled out all my shipping info, clicked "review order", and after a VERY long wait got a Drupal notification that the site is off-line. Great... as I type this the ecwpress site is still not letting me checkout.

In the meantime I was trying to load and it couldn't even load the homepage - I would just get a server down error. Finally at about 9:20 it loaded and by pure luck I was able to get one copy of the silver edition. :-) I immediately went back to the site to try to get another and they were gone. It appears the gold edition is still available though.

Good luck all - hopefully we'll hear from some other folks who managed to secure an order.

Wasn't it Don Henley who said "crap is king"?

Somewhat ironic, dont you think?
