My order of your book arrived at my door today! Sadly the top flap was already opened and there was no book inside! :-(

 

When I ordered the Stella Programmer's Guide from Lulu it also arrived with the top flap open but luckily the book was inside. I don't think Lulu is using very good glue to seal shut their envelopes and I'm guessing your book slid out in transport and wasn't just stolen. It's probably now sliding around in the back of a postal truck! The letter carrier didn't ring the doorbell when they dropped it off and just left it without knocking either, I think they saw there was nothing inside and didn't want to be there when I got the empty envelope.

 

I contact Lulu about it a couple of hours ago so hopefully they'll be able to send a replacement copy for me. :-(

 

And did Lulu send you a replacement copy?

They did replace it promptly, this time the flap was sealed and everything was inside, hooray!

Sorry, I forgot to follow up here that I got the replacement and just talked about it on the ZeroPage livestream. Thanks for putting out this book Dion! :-)

Actually your name is mentioned 5 times in this book, which might be a reason to order a copy after all :-)
And Lulu.com offers free shipping regularly, which means the total costs will be under 6 euro's for you. Just saying :-)

They have raised the price from #4.69 to $8.21. Was that recent?

It's $8.21 if you're ordering from Canada and $4.69 from the US. From Germany it should say "Preis: 5,69 € (exkl. MwSt)". 

Maybe the price is different depending on where in the US or Germany you are located? 

Weird...

Lulu seems to offer free shipping for about a week in every two months (usually the code is ONESHIP for free shipping).
