Briefly, I have good news and bad news.
The Middle Kingdom (Chung Kuo Book 3) in hardcover is now available for pre-order on Amazon.co.uk at a 30% discount. Yay! (Thanks Goonda.)
As several commenters have pointed out, all Kindle versions of both Chung Kuo books have been removed from the Amazon U.S. store. I don’t have an explanation. The optimist in me is hoping that this might be a sign of an impending deal with an American publisher, who would have the U.K. versions removed in favor of their own to be eventually available, but this is pure speculation – I haven’t heard anything at all from anyone to this effect. The last I heard about the search for American publisher was back in April.
If you still need Chung Kuo books on your Kindle, hope is not lost.
That’s all for now. More news as it comes in.
