Pandemonium Delirium Leaves This Amazonian in Acrimonium

Hello, my name is Adam Spunberg — creator of thefandom.net — and I’m here to tell a cautioning tale of book purchasing gone wrong.

You see, I ordered my copy of Pandemonium well in advance from Amazon, which would have been perfectly fine if I hadn’t gotten other ideas. As many of you probably know, Amazon has a Super Saver shipping discount: If you order $25 of merchandise or above, shipping is free.

Naturally, I thought, “What a perfect opportunity to get the Deathly Hallows I and II DVDs I’ve been wanting!” It never occurred to me that this inspired decision would also mean I wouldn’t get Pandemonium on its release day — February 28. Curses!

If you look at the image below, this is the less-than-lovely email I received from Amazon this morning:

As you can see from the parts marked in red, I now won’t be receiving Pandemonium, OR the Deathly Hallows DVDs until Friday. I’ve learned my lesson. Don’t make the same mistake I did! Super Saving isn’t worth hearing the whole world rave about how good a book is while you wait impatiently at your mailbox!

Ahhh. Getting that out makes me feel better now. Better, but not cured. Never will I be cured.

  1. i did the same thing except mine wasnt going to come until may! i cancelled the whole order RIGHT AWAY though. thank god!

  2. This is unlucky! The free shipping always delays items coming, and sadly you have been caught up in it. But hey at least you know its going to be worth it! Maybe stay away from the Delirium page till you have read it though, we woundnt want to spoil it for you now, would we 😉
