Apologies

If youve been to bookstores looking for The Manticore's Secret, all I can do is say sorry - its not out yet, for reasons I cant fathom. Should be out in Delhi by Monday, and in stores in the rest of the country by the end of next week. Copies will, of course, be available at the Cal reading next Tuesday.
What can I say - things move slowly. Please do get the book, though :)

Surely you mean The Manticore's Strategy. Is that not the name of Episode 2 ?

I asked a bookstore if they had "The Manticore's Secret" and the shop keeper quickly told me that he didn't keep that "kind of books".
I was a little surprised by his reaction and was confused by his "we don't keep those kind of books" remark.
Only later did I realise that he had misheard me and had thought that I was asking for "The Panty Core's Secret"!!
Man, when is the book really coming out?? I need to clear the misunderstanding with the shopkeeper.
