I pre-ordered a copy of The History of the Medieval World from Amazon.com months ago, back when the book went into production (I always do this, just to keep tabs on availability). Today I get this:

    Oh my. Those of us writing blog reviews will have to get cracking! You might want to send out an email about that….

    Oh, we’ll still go by pub date–mythical though it is. The window is still within 14 days of Feb. 22.
