Can't Find Dogs in Store

I was going to put in an order for Dogs in the Vineyard today at the IPR site, but I can't find it listed anymore. Is there no way to order the book anymore?

Dogs in the Vineyard can be ordered directly from lumpley games

http://www.lumpley.com/

Where? I'm looking to get it in Print, not PDF.

This page: http://www.lumpley.com/games/ links to Indie Press, but the link just goes to a generic page and I can't get Dogs to show up on a search. I know it used to be there a month or so ago.

Yep! IPR doesn't carry my games anymore.

I'm in the middle of a full overhaul of my "buy my games" page. (I'm a master of timing, you see.) If you'd like to wait a few days, I hope to have a new thing online soon. Otherwise, you can PayPal me $26 ($22 + $4 s&h) at lumpley@earthlink.net and I'll send you the book. Add another buck or two if you're outside North America.

Thanks for asking! Sorry for the hassle.

Dogs in the Vineyard is now available in print here.

Hey, that store's looking pretty good. One thing I note is that you're doing an image-based index of the games - I have a similar one in the Finnish Arkenstone store. As you can see, what I did was put short descriptions of each game up as pop-ups that appear when you scroll the mouse over the product's image. Perhaps you might consider something similar here? Would make some more info on each product available when browsing, but without cluttering the index.

Oh hey, I hadn't looked at your store before. That's a good idea.

Please note that since people have been able to buy stuff from IPR for awhile they might go there, search and wonder why nothing shows up. I did that.

It would have been nice to have a notice, like a press release, in the IPR news that state that you have moved your stuff. There will be more than me who will go to IPR and then stop in confusion.

Is lumpley on vacation?  I ordered a copy of DitV on Nov 27 and haven't heard anything back since then despite sending a couple of follow up emails.  I tried the earthnet address and the gmail one but maybe these are not in use anymore... If there is a better way of getting in contact or a new address can someone let me know?

(soon i hope <grin>)

Yes, a holiday-related backlog.

All outstanding physical books are en route, except those ordered over this past weekend.

All outstanding PDF orders, I'll fulfill today.

Thanks! Sorry for the waiting.

Just as an aside: there was never a time when IPR carried all the indie games from the forge. Not even the most important ones.

For example, a seminal game like "My Life With Master" was never carried by IPR. Nor was Spione. Some other games like Primetime Adventures or Wilderness of Mirrors only very recently showed up at IPR after years of publication.

Yes, it can be an hassle to order from different places instead of having a single one-stop place for everything. But it's an hassle that was always there, it could never be avoided (if you don't limit yourself to the games you can find in a single place, obviously) and most indie games aficionados are already used to it.
Ciao,

You gotta respect a man of his word! Everything is sorted out and it was my misunderstanding that caused the problem.
Thanks for the quick response Vincent.

I would have posted this sooner but I DID have a fresh DitV pdf to blaze through first. Yee-Haw!
