Kudos to the people running the forum for allowing a fair vote.

With Andy's history - I was worried this thread might get locked, or posts deleted.

Very magnanimous of the forum admin.

Congrats, Andy!

You're upset that I'm upset that I can't get a copy?
Is this unnecessary negative post directed at me to build your post count? Please explain.

Andy was adamant that it would be a limited release. But as a happy purchaser of the book myself I would be pleased if he ran off more copies. It is always a shame when good stuff like this sells out before people hear about it. And it would be good for Andy to sell more copies so he can devote more time to his superb blog.

Andy says there may be some more copies available in the future.

"The Jerx, Volume One is sold out. However, there are a handful of books that are currently on hold for certain people. If something should happen and any of those become available, I will offer the books to people who sign up on the waiting list below in the order they've signed up."
