The Schach Niggemann site lately changed the old announced date for appearance of the book (November 27) to January 10, 2015.

Today they changed the date again, announcing the appearance for December 23, 2014.

For those of you who do receive it before the holidays, can I at least get a picture? I fear my review copies will arrive months from now!

I preordered from Chess Direct, because they usually receive books quickly. Chess Direct are in Sheffield, and London Chess Centre probably need no indication of where they are located, but I calculate that if the warehouse is in the UK, it makes sense that being within a 300 km distance they should receive the books earlier than anyone else.

I pre-ordered with C&B yesterday...they are not far from where i work so i can pop round and pick it up....I dont want to rely on post around christmas...and they are open 7 days a week...

I would have pre-ordered sooner, but wasnt sure whether Amazon, C&B or a 3rd party would have copies first.

I guess the race is on to see which of us will get it first  Grin

Where did you preorder it from? If you're intent on getting it as soon as possible - it might be better to wait and see who gets it first then order it from them...

Hi Tony, I preordered your book an hour ago. However, I am not sure when I get it, so hopefully soon I will have it in my hands.

I pre-ordered my with Chess Direct ages ago. So I would hope to get it before Christmas as they get the books quite quick I believe.

Yeah I wouldn't go with Amazon right away - I know with a lot of chess retailers Amazon gets their copies last or on a delay because of how cheaply they sell their books. A place like Chess & Bridge would likely be the first place to have it - especially because Everyman shares some employees with them.

I just saw on Facebook today that TKS has arrived in the Everyman UK warehouse and ships out to European retailers today! So now it's up to you Europeans to figure out who'll get a copy the fastest and who can get a copy to you the fastest!

Amazon UK still arent listing it as available from them or even taking pre-orders for it yet.

There is one seller in their marketplace apparently with a copy or two available but not promising delivery before Christmas.

I'm probably going to try and get it from Chess and Bridge..i think they will be my best chance...maybe i should queue up overnight to try and get the first copy... Cheesy

Christmas is in one week. Do you think that chess vendors get it this week? I still see none that list it as in stock as of today morning, the 17th.

Around once a month I Google something like The Killer Sicilian Rotella to ensure that interested parties out there get their questions about the content and publication date answered, and I stumbled upon this post by Simon Williams:

http://www.gingergm.com/blog/2011-10-05-killer-brand-catching-on

It's hard to tell if he was genuinely incensed or not (I get the impression he has a great sense of humor!), but I got a good chuckle out of it. I hesitate to point out the irony that he's now writing The Killer Dutch for Everyman, which I assume is at least partly a rehash of his e-book of the same name that came with his DVD, and that Aaron Summerscale has written two books that both predate GingerGM entirely that use the moniker "Killer". Anyway, I look forward to his book, and to whether or not he can solve some of the problems listed in the forum in the 7...Ne4 8.Nxe4 line - I have always had a soft spot for the Classical Dutch, and way back when loved his original Gambit work on it.
