Clockwork Angels audiobook narrated by Neil PeartAlso, last week the folks at RushCon announced that Anderson will be Sunday's guest speaker at this year's convention. 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. The Rush Backstage Club is also running a promotion starting today where every order (while supplies last) will receive a copy of the Clockwork Angels novel sampler booklet. They have 500 copies available to give away.

Gold version sold out by Saturday morning. That's a really interesting idea, including a page from the actual marked-up manuscript with each copy. If the book is a hit, those suckers are going to skyrocket in value.

After constantly refreshing on my phone I was finally able to get the silver edition. But after I ordered it I called my pal LerxstGirl who told me they were all sold out. So I guess I just got real lucky.

SCHWING! I think I got the last one at RBC; availability disappeared after they took my order...

I just got mine! lol
You need to keep trying. Apparently, they "restarted" the services.

ECW says: "Resource Limit Is Reached -- The website is temporarily unable to service your request as it exceeded resource limit. Please try again later."


"Drupal: Site off-line -- The site is currently not available due to technical problems. Please try again later. Thank you for your understanding."

Meanwhile, at RBC, we're met with the following:

"The following errors occurred: Invalid request. Possible cause could be: session time out; server inaccessible, etc. Please try again.."

Guessing the tens of thousands of requests for 300 copies of the book was simply too much for their poor little server(s) to handle.

And both servers subsequently crashed from the onslaught. Guess I'll be getting a trade version.
