Nought out of three aint bad

Well, my last Amazon order was not an overwhelming success, "Mr. Bunny's Guide to ActiveX" by Carlton Egremont III is no longer available, and allegedly "City of Glass" by Douglas Coupland is not going to be published in the UK after all. I am not doing very well with this book, a website claimed that it was only available from Chapters in Canada, so I tried to order it but they wanted a fax of my credit card, which didn't seem a particularly hot idea to me. I have now ordered it, and the latest Tony Hillerman 'The Sinister Pig' from We will see if it's third time lucky from .com.
