Man, I am really glad that the image isn't working on my computer, because I want to wait until the book shows up on my doorstep to see the cover*. I instinctively threw my hand over the screen. Why did I enter this thread?

*(as an aside, it's totally lame to preorder and then get both AW & Freemarket after people who show up at GenCon. But I know it's not Vx's or Lx's fault, so, that's just the way it is).

Fuck, yes.  This.  Especially because of Freemarket.  It's as if GenCon exists in some kind of temporal bubble where preorders don't matter.

I'm not THAT annoyed but it's pretty irritating.

Yeah, probably. Thing is, I can't see it over there either. :)

What's the form factor of the book?  I am dying of curiousity.

What's the form factor of the book?  I am dying of curiousity.

From the un-store: The book is digest-sized (8.5” x 5.5” ), 300 pages plus a few, color cover, b&w interior.

In one of the early "This Just In From Gen Con!" episodes, Kevin was talking about how excited about AW he was, saying, "it's a big Vincent Baker game, 130 pages or so..." Boy is he gonna be surprised.

Yeah, it's a smaller, trade paperback type book made out of a thinish, recycled paper; it's not like bible paper, but it's thinner than normal and has a good texture to it.

Binding looks good, etc.

Just got my copy in the mail. I had no idea the cover was going to be different than the GameStorm preview version. I'm not disappointed at all.

Note about books:
All domestic pre-orders shipped within roughly 12 hours of receiving the books from the printers, and only an hour before we left for GenCon. Internationals will be in the mail by Friday, just as soon as we humanly can. Should be reaching a whole slew of you today.

And yes, the cover is hot.
