The ABA now has in inventory the third printing of MSCD. And we’ve reverted to the binding used in the first printing, namely Wire-O binding, or more specifically semi-concealed Wire-O binding, but we’ve also fixed the first printing’s binding problems. Based on my entirely unscientific survey, I suspect that most of you would approve of this change.
The third printing comes not a moment too soon, as the ABA was embarrassed to find that they’d sold out. That’s presumably why Amazon is now saying that the book usually ships “within 1 to 3 weeks.” They should be back to their usual speed once they, too, get the third printing in stock. They may well have it already.
