The Pre-Order for the first book of Pie-IX is now open and will be open until the 24th. Unfortunately, right now it's only open to people in the US and Canada. International orders will be available in the future.
Pie-IX: Time is of the Essence consists of 42 pages @ 8.5"x11", paperback. The book is in full color with 15 illustrations (12 never before seen!), and two full pages of fanart at the back by 18 very talented deviants.
