The Waterstones' page was pulled when they were notified that it was premature. Whoever got their orders in before the page was pulled may have "lucked out". I was one of those--my account shows the "Order is being processed". It's been that way since I was able to place the order.

My account says the same thing. I had e-mailed Waterstone's Customer Service to try and get more info but they never responded. I guess we just need to keep waiting....


Same here.
I was able to put in two orders, but I've no idea if I'll ever get this book/these books.

I keep checking my credit card to see if it's been charged, but nothing yet.

Latest reply from Waterstones:

Thank you for your email.

Order number: xxxxxxx

Unfortunately the item 'STEPHEN KING Under the Dome' is delayed in publication. The date has been pushed back for this item. We are still waiting for the new date from the publishers. This will be updated on our web site shortly. We will keep you updated should we get any further information.

Thank you for your patience and please accept our apologies for any disappointment or inconvenience caused.

Kind regards,

Waterstones Customer Service

This one is going to run and run. ;)
Though at least Waterstones do reply to queries - Hodder, who are after all the publishers, just seem to completely ignore email queries.

Finally some news - got an email from Hatchard's this evening just as I'd got home to say the UK UTD was available. Described as;

UNDER THE DOME - LIMITED EDITION SIGNED & SLIPCASED VERSION (STEPHEN KING - SIGNED COPY) @£100.00

Ordered one, got the email conf - hoping to get it next week!

I was also able to order one from Hatchards and got the confirmation email. I'm a bit skeptical about getting it anytime soon, though. I'd feel better if I saw it announced on the Hodder & Stoughton website. Hatchards seemed to sell out fairly quickly, too. I'd estimate they had maybe 20 copies made available.

I'm pretty poisitive ref the Hatchards situation, they offer quite a "personal" / less automated service so I doubt they would have emailed me or made the book live on their website without it being in stock, especially so as one of the options is to charge and collect it from store.

No doubt we'll know more next week.

P.S. Stark contrast to my local Waterstones who suggested i try ebay for it!

Guess I missed my shot. According to ABE Books, it was only 500 copies and is sold out.
Curses.
