Mind you, when you’re dealing with people willing to shell out $500 for a copy of Perdido Street Station, I imagine the urge to try to flog them Tower Bridge signed by China Mieville must have been overwhelming.
Officially canceled, yes, but I think you’re misreading the subsequent comments in that thread. Those folks seem to be saying “So the announcement says they’ll be getting in touch about the $500 I spent on a non-book…. I haven’t heard anything yet.” That strikes me as still being strong grounds for disgruntlement. On the other hand, I don’t know if the lack of activity in the last several days means NSB has patched things up for them, or if they just haven’t re-complained in the thread.
