    What a disgrace …. Waterstones completely messed up the sale of this book, I wasn’t lucky enough to secure a copy, even though I had submitted ALL my details, card information, address, everything. The site kept crashing and even though all the 500 books had been placed in baskets and details were being added by all of us desperate to secure a copy, the site kept on allowing (other) people to add the ‘already sold out’ book to their baskets as well, resulting in a complete meltdown of the the website. I have never been so disappointed about a book in my life, and what makes it even worse is some random bloke has just put a copy on Ebay for £500. Alongside that, each copy of the new remastered box sets I ordered from Amazon have arrived damaged… including the replacement copies. Oh well, at least my copy of Mojo is ok!

      Exactly my experience, Eric. I logged on before 10 in anticipation and, like you, got to the final stage with my card details been entered and just waiting for 10 minutes for the order to go through and then being informed that it had sold out. I am just hoping that some bookstores will have the deluxe edition on the day of release.

    They’re now exchanging hands for upwards of £800 each online!

    Not that she needs more money, but I’d rather she’d signed more and everyone who wanted one new could have got one, with money going to her, rather than the non-fans who nabbed them only to sell on…
