Imagine my sadness when I went to my LCS to pick up my weekly books, and H&V 2 was still not in the shelves.
Yes, I know the disappointment and pain of waiting. Oh, the pain, the pain of it all!
Ah, but this is not the case for all.
As a matter of fact, last Saturday, April 21, I heard from 2 sources that books were available. Late this week I heard from another party stating the same, and a friend got an email from Amazon, not only that they updated the release date on their website, but informing that the book will be ready to ship out from them on 05/08/12. (But do note that I have not heard nor seen anything official on this site about a release date, yet the book has gone to the printers about 6+ weeks ago, so it should not be too much longer, barring any unforseens!
So, it looks like this should be available very soon and in peoples' hands!
I would suggest checking back with your LCS by week's end to see if it is available with them. If not, they should at least have an idea of when it will be in stock. If not, you may want to go with another dealer. Hope this helped.
