To those who have requested to receive money in lieu of books, we will begin sending those out starting Wednesday. If, for some reason, there is a delay in a person's account, I will contact them directly and let them know what's happened.

I may have mistaken the type of leather being used--I copied the exact name from the Transcontinental quotes, it may well be an in-house name--so, when we're uploading all the files, I'll ask for a common name.

We're currently waiting for somebody to finish rechecking the reflow of Time Enough for Loved--ETA for completion being today or tomorrow--and I'm double-checking to see if there's any reason we can't have the higher-res version of the VE logo on the book's title page. I am not currently aware of any other obstacles to going to print.

Wow --- lots of great info, both today and last Friday! (Gonna start getting spoiled, with 3 posts in 7 days!!!)

Now that everything seems to be settling down, can you provide an updated, estimated, projected, approximate, best-current-guess production and shipping schedule for the first set of volumes? (I realize that you've previously stated, in the December letter (and restated in your 4 December blog entry) that "The first group of ten volumes will be printed in the first quarter of 2008", but we're already halfway through the first quarter.)

And has the VEPC and/or Apogee determined a shipping vendor (FedEx, UPS, USPS, DHL, or someone else)??

Thanks, once again, for all your time and attention!!
