I'm happy to say I've had multiple reports that Pentti Sammallahti's Here Far Away is finally shipping from Amazon.com. I hope this is the last update post I'll have to do on this subject; the saga has tired me.
I know how I can make myself feel better—I'll go look through the book again.
(Thanks to everyone who informed me that their order has been shipped)
P.S. When I was checking the orders I noticed that this book is our big seller for this month, despite the fact that I know nothing about it and have not even mentioned it. Interesting.

Featured Comments from:
ACG: "The portrait book was featured a few days ago on Luminous Landscape."
Mike replies: Ah, that explains it. Thanks.
Dave Stewart: "I see there's a certain D. Hobby who's written a glowing review at the Amazon link. Suspect some TOP readers have heard about it via his Strobist website (i.e., here)."
MarkR: "R.C. Concepcion mentioned that book recently on Scott Kelby's blog. Must be some sort of halo effect."
Mike replies: I guess everybody's talking about it, then.
RobinP: "It would be interesting to know how many (if any) TOP readers bought the Kindle edition of the Heisler book and what their opinion is re looking at a photo book in the new format."
Chris Gibbs: "Here's an interview with Heisler talking about that book. And he even segues into 'the look' he wanted for a certain shot. It ties in nicely with Mike's post 'Do You Really Need FF?'"
