Feist, and believe it should be here, then please contact us.

Just a reminder that the US Hard Cover of At the Gates of Darkness, will be officially released in 18 days. As always they can appear on the shelves before hand, so watch out, they could be about anytime now. And if its not, maybe consider reserving a copy, so you don't miss out.
For those in the San Diego area, watch out for Ray signing at Mysterious Galaxy on the 16th April, (see other announcements elsewhere). Again you can pre-order a signed copy to be shipped, and they ship internationally if you ask nicely.

Crydee forum online
After spending two days converting the existing forum over to the replacement software, we decided to stay with the existing obsolete software. This was due to what we believe are serious fundamental ommisions, including no ability for a user to delete themself, and no simple way of providing our terms and conditions at registration.
In addition to this, the interface although providing many new features, was found to be far more complex than we believe our international userbase needs.
So for the time being, nothing has changed. We will however monitor the status of the proposed replacement, with the intent on a future upgrade, when it is suitable. We appologise for any inconvenience that may have been caused.

Crydee forum offline
The Crydee forum http://forum.crydee.com is currently offline for maintainence.
We are in the process of converting the backend software, to a more current package. To enable a smooth transition, and avoid message lost, the forum will remain closed till 1200 GMT, Tuesday 9 March 2010, whilst we validate the conversion for completeness. As soon as we are happy that all is well, the site will return live, which may be before the specified date above. If there are issues preventing the final change over we will reactivate the old forum at that time.
We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
