Anyone else having trouble seeing the illustrations in the Kindle version? Besides me, that is?

I can't see them in the online sample... I'm after paperback versions myself though so I don't know if it's different for the full version.

Ah great news, though, and I've shared the link for the ebook version!

Amazon, in their infinite wisdom, actually changed the image file paths during their conversion process -- thus breaking all the illustration links.

We've temporarily suspended sales and addressed the problem. If you or anyone you know purchased the copy with the broken links, just email me -- we'll send you a version that works.

Can't we just wait for the "fixed" version and re-download it? I mean, I've spent the $5. I'd rather just let AW keep whatever portion of that we get, and have Amazon fix the version I paid for, that THEY messed up. :D

Of course! It's been reloaded with the file paths tweaked. Should be showing up again anytime.

Though I'm a contributor, once I am done reading the anthology, I promise to post my thoughts on every story and piece of artwork for you all.

Happy reading!

Thanks K.L.! I look forward to your thoughts (almost as much as I'm looking forward to reading my own copy. C'mon, Amazon!).

It isn't obvious that in order to update a volume, you must first delete it from your collection, and that doing so won't incur a new purchase charge.

I went to the "Manage Your Kindle" page and reloaded the book 5 times before finally getting a hold of someone in the help chat. I'm pretty sure his first language isn't remotely English, but after some fits and starts, he was able to replace the flawed version with the correct one.

I just want to say thanks to MacAllister and Medievalist for their hard work getting this thing off the ground. And thanks to all the contributors, writers and artists alike, for such a delightful read.

Peter.

My daughter's BFF in Puerto Rico received her copy today. I got a pic of her two eyes staring at the camera from over top of her copy. LOL!

I'm in Bermuda on vacation with a friend and I gave her a copy as a birthday gift. I like the idea that people are reading this book all over the world :).

Also, I've been reading it as well, and I've been impressed with just how solid all the stories are.
