I just heard on the radio that it's basically no where to be found anywhere in Wisconsin. Apparently you can order issues through Sports Illustrated, and all the operators have heard all week is people trying to get the Favre issue.

You sure you want that copy, Paul?
It's for my brother-in-law. Honest.
Anyway, there was a blog item yesterday in the Milwaukee Jouirnal-Sentinel that there would be another 50,000 copies printed and in stores today (I think).
I'm just happy for my brother-in-law. (My copy is already stashed with my collectibles)
I gather SOMEONE here works at Quad? :-) Let me know if you know of any openings in their Quality Department.
The local bookstore got a shipment of the second printing in, so I was able to pick one up there as well as getting one from odessasteps.
It's interesting that all three are different. Mine came with an outer mailing/advertisement wrap, so its cover has no UPC nor address label. The one from Mark has his printed address label. Both of these are semi-glossy paper. The second printing one has a UPC on it, and it's REALY glossy -- a huge difference over the other two.
I don't know if you'd like any kind of Cyberpunk, but at least give Neuromancer and Snow Crash a look. Also, try the 'His Dark Materials' trilogy by Phillip Pullman. It starts with The Golden Compass. It's a good read. Hmmmm... what else....
